What you’ll do

Beat the layover blues and trade in Starbucks for sweet cherry ice, lounges for street side kiosks and souvenir shops for the real deal! Even if you only have a few hours to spare, spend them with one of our friendly hosts who can help you escape the airport and experience a bit of the authentic Tokyo. Whether its ticking off a few of the city’s must-see sights, or exploring a neighborhood you’ve always dreamed of seeing, we’ve got you covered. Squeeze in some shopping or indulge in a delicious meal whilst you wait for your connecting flight. The food in Tokyo is absolutely tops, and you’ll be able to add a wealth of culinary treats to you ‘tasted’ list, from yakitori to real ramen noodles, but why limit yourself? Try real sushi or sip on some authentic sake. If you’re in Tokyo already, you may as well capitalize on your time there. Let us be the friendly helping hand that makes it stress free, and gets you back to the airport on time. The pace is yours to set but remember, you can always sleep on the plane. The duration of this experience can be adapted to your requirements. Please get in touch via the live chat or email us at info@cityunscripted.com

Wild and Delicious Tokyo!

I had a long overnight layover in Tokyo. I wanted to experience the city in the most efficient way. Kenji was the perfect guide, he was able to schedule and design a night crawl tour based on my preference. We met at Shinagawa train station and then explored Shimbashi and Ginza districts. Sushi, sake, wagyu beef, shopping, bars, etc. What a night! Thank you, Kenji!!
