What you’ll do

We bet you can’t wait to start exploring Tokyo as a family, but we know you might also be wondering how best to get around, where to eat and what activities the entire family can enjoy together. Sashimi isn’t for everyone, and we can’t all be fascinated by Shinto shrines, we know. So you’ll join one of our hosts to explore the city together, and discover a side of Tokyo that everyone will love. Half of the fun is seeing weird and wacky things they’ve never laid eyes on before (or you, for that matter), like wildly out-there cosplay costumes in the streets of Harajuku, the kawaii culture of cat cafes (but there are hedgehog cafes now too!) or VR gaming in a futuristic neighborhood. Stop to try local street food, slurp ramen, try rainbow colored treats at an Alice in Wonderland Cafe, or head to a conveyor belt sushi - everyone will love ordering on an iPad and watching their dish whizz towards them on a mini train. The point is, just let us know your family’s style and what you might be interested in, and we’ll take care of the rest. Your host can’t wait to help you make some magical memories together.

Family friendly Tokyo

We had the pleasure of Dania as our host in Tokyo. From the moment we met her she was friendly, easy going and super knowledgeable. Dania had a basic plan for the day but was totally flexible with anything we had in mind. She even stuck around a bit longer to help us get to our last location for the day. We all loved Dania, and especially our daughter which is always a win.

Great start to our holiday in Tokyo with a 4 year old

We were a bit nervous taking on Tokyo with a small child but needn’t have worried. Anne-Laure was a complete sweetheart - very good with our daughter and so understanding and kind when we had to make multiple stops (bathroom/ 4-year old hunger detours) along the tour. She even faced the frenzy of KiddyTown with grace and humour. We learnt about Tokyo landmarks and culture, saw a heap of highlights and were able to ask all sorts of question along the way. I really loved having Anne-Lure help us buy commuter passes and teach us how to use the trains and metro well. This saved us heaps of trouble and set us up for lots of confident commuting for the rest of our trip. Thank you!!!

Tour Tokyo with a local

We were very lucky to have Sumire as our guide for our first day in Tokyo. We emailed back and forth first to decide on an itinary so we ended up being able to do exactly what we wanted. Sumire helped us navigate Tokyo and gave us lots of great advice for the next few days. Highly recommended!
