What you'll do

No matter what little time you’re touching down in Tokyo for, your host will ensure you make the most of it! Hungry? Chow down on Japan’s favorite street foods in one of Shibuya’s yokochos, wonderful alleyways packed with eateries, or if you’d prefer some downtime, you could enjoy a picnic at Ueno Park, a huge space lined with fascinating museums and iconic cherry trees. If you’re visiting after dark, why not indulge in some sake and karaoke in Roppongi, an urban jungle that never sleeps, or line up at 300 Bar in Ginza - Tokyo’s most lavish living quarter - where everything will cost you a ticket or two? Whatever your taste, your host will design a layover experience just for you! And we promise, you won’t miss your flight...

Where you’ll go

Feel like you’re wasting time at your terminal? Then don’t! Break out of that lounge and join a local host to explore a Tokyo neighborhood you’ve always dreamed of seeing! You could explore Akihabara, the pop-culture mad Electric Town where video games, anime, and blockbusters come to life, or stylish Shibuya, one of Tokyo’s business districts made famous by the monstrous maze of pedestrian crossings in front of its train station. If you’d prefer to use your limited time to sample authentic Japanese cuisine, your host could show Toyosu Market in Tsukiji (a district built on reclaimed land) for some exquisite sushi, or what about experiencing one of Shinjuku’s crazy, themed cafes? An owl cafe isn’t something you see every day!
