You could begin your day at Sensō-ji, the oldest temple in Tokyo which dates back to 645 AD, then fast forward a few thousand years into the city’s temple of youth culture that’s just next door: the Harajuku neighborhood where the streets are a catwalk sub-cultures from kawaii to cosplay. After you’ve run the gauntlet over Shibuya Crossing, you could discover a quieter pace of life in a creative and artsy neighborhood like Sangenjaya, where Showa-period architecture is interspersed with vintage stores. Your host will help you discover their city’s dizzying contrasts - from ordering ramen on an iPad and eating it in your own personal booth to stumbling upon mysterious moss-covered shrines hidden between ultra-modern skyscrapers.
With a full day to explore, who knows where you might end up! You could explore Tokyo’s high-energy central districts like Shibuya, the iconic area that’s known for its dining, shopping and entertainment - and for never moving slower than 100mph. From here you could venture into Harajuku, a neighboring district that’s renowned for its cutting-edge street fashion - don’t miss Takeshita-Dori, a street that’s an explosion of wacky themed cafes, kawaii cute pop culture and crazy costumes. Or perhaps ask your host to take you further afield to discover a Tokyo that most visitors never see… Like Shimokitazawa, one of west Tokyo’s trendy neighborhoods that’s famous for its notorious live music scene, vinyl stores, and Antipodean coffee shops?
