      Choose among dynamic districts

      As the biggest city in the world, Tokyo’s sprawling metropolis is packed with unique neighborhoods. Some are iconic in their own right (glitzy Ginza, electrifying Shibuya), and others are a little off-the-beaten-path (creative Koenji, trendy Sangenjaya). Private guided tours of Tokyo are the easiest way to get to grips with the distinct personalities of each diverse district – and find the areas that suit you best. Whether you travel back in time in historic Kawagoe or get lost among vintage threads in retro Shimokitazawa, we’ll plan your Tokyo private tours in the districts you’ll love.

        We arrived in Tokyo as first-time visitors to Japan on Sunday night and Yuko picked us up at our hotel on Monday morning for a tour. My 17yo daughter is very interested in the pop culture of Japan and Yuko had done her research to show us all the great spots in Harajuku. She balanced that out with a trip to Meiji-jingu shrine where we learned about more traditional Japanese culture. I wish I had Yuko with me for the rest of this trip! I highly recommend City Unscripted trips and Yuko.

        I recently took my first trip to Tokyo and stayed in Akihabara. I can't praise them enough! I booked this tour for the 23rd, received a prompt reply and they even started answering questions before the tour date. During the tour, they were very great at conversation, enough to pull an introvert such as me out of my shell, helped me find specific figured from a specific anime that aired years ago, and it only got better from there. Their ability to ask a few simple questions and plan a four-hour tour that was interesting, fun, and exciting the entire time speaks wonders, and the next time I visit, I will definitely hire again! I can't wait to pick up where we left off and see more of what the area has to offer. Thanks for a great time!

        My guide was a perfect fit! He was friendly and very insightful to help better understand the local culture. We had a fun time together seeing some off the beaten path sites. I highly recommend Hiro-san!
