What you'll do

Join a Local host who is a fellow history lover to discover a culturally rich  and diverse Tokyo through the eyes of a local

Immerse yourself in Tokyo's culture and history through exploring famous sites as well as unique, less well-known venues. 

Stroll through neighbourhoods famed for their ancient roots and learn about the different Japanese imperial eras. 

Spend time getting to know your Local Host and learn about other historically significant and interesting things to see and do in the city or simply discuss your favourite topics together over a coffee!


What to expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personalities and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local Host who will create a bespoke experience for you. 

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly (usually by email) to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Your Local host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the Tokyo truly unique.
