What you’ll do

We’d all look pretty silly if we said you could see all of Tokyo’s must-sees in one day. But, you’ll join one of our hosts to have a good go at it! Ultimately, it all comes down to what you think is unmissable. For you, it could be getting amongst the madness of Shibuya Crossing, feasting on sushi at the top of a skyscraper, taking in the views from the top of the Tokyo Skytree or paying your respects at Sensō-ji. Or, you could let your host share with you what they think is unmissable about their city - you won’t get that from a guidebook! Those things are heavy anyway, you’re better off without. The goal here is to absorb the electric energy of Tokyo - a city constantly reaching into the future, at the same time as clinging to its ancient past. Be dazzled by sleek, immense skyscrapers, and charmed by low slung wooden buildings - we can’t get enough of Tokyo’s contrasts. Feeling peckish? You’re never further than 50 metres away from your nearest noodle outlet or sushi den. All you have to do is tell us what you’re into, and we’ll do our best to make it happen. You say Tokyo, we say impossible variety made possible..

TOKYO, MUST SEE TOKYO IN A DAYMichael

Customized tour

I appreciated having a knowledgeable and interesting guide pull together an itinerary for areas of interest for me. Once Michael understood that I wanted old Tokyo, with an artistic bent, he crafted the perfect excursion.

TOKYO, MUST SEE TOKYO IN A DAYPatrick

Must see Tokyo tour

We did the must see Tokyo tour with Patrick. He did such a great job he took us to a place near Nippori Station and we explored side streets that we otherwise would have never gone too and got to see a different side of Tokyo. The tour was great because it was very flexible to what we wanted. We got great food that we wanted and Patrick gave us some great suggestions for the remainder of our stay in Japan. He also took some great pictures for us. I really wanted to find some gifts for family and he helped me find exactly what I was looking for. 8 hours was a little rough but it was fun to get too see all the spots we wanted to visit and hear more about the city that we didn’t know.
