What you'll do

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.
