What you'll do

You could never see all of Tokyo’s unmissable attractions in just one day, but you could see 10 of them! From making the mad dash across Shibuya Crossing to ordering sushi on an iPad then watching it speed towards you on a train at a kaitenzushi restaurant, Zen-ing out in the peaceful forest surrounding Meiju Jinju before throwing yourself into the chaos of Takeshita Dori - a street famed for its quirky themed cafes and cult fashion - you’ll experience 15 of Tokyo’s most unmissable attractions in just one day. But more than that, you’ll discover hidden gems that only an insider could reveal - like how the best view of Tokyo is from the Met Gov Building, because from here you get to see Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Tower all at the same time. 

 

Where you'll go

You’ll go on a whirlwind tour of Tokyo’s top sights in the most famous central districts. In ultra-modern Shibuya, you’ll see iconic sights like Shibuya Crossing, Meiju Jinju shrine and Harajuku, a neighborhood that’s an explosion of rainbow-colored snacks, electric pink wigs and kawaii cute costumes - this is the epicenter of Tokyo’s youth culture. Stroll through the tranquility of Yoyogi Park, and burst out the other side into neighboring Shinjuku, the ‘Skyscraper District’, where you’ll discover even more top sights like Shinjuku Gyoen Gardens and Golden Gai, a ramshackle, retro alleyway that’s packed with 6-seater bars. From ancient to futuristic in just a few steps, thanks to the insider knowledge of your host.
