Full description
This tour starts at your hotel and first visits Asakusa. In Asakusa, you can enjoy the views of the area, and also the Tokyo Skytree from the observation deck of Asakusa Cultural Tourism Center. Then you will take a walk through Kaminarimon, Nakamise, Asakusa and Asakusa shrines; all are icons of Tokyo tourism. At Sensoji Temple, you can also enjoy a huge ceiling painting –a highlight of the main hall – as the main hall has an elevator for wheelchair users. You will then move across the river to Sumida Park, and enjoy the view of the Tokyo Skytree observer and Sumida River, with beautiful sights beyond. Sumida Park is also known as a cherry-blossom viewing spot where you can enjoy the cherry blossoms in full bloom, and is also a scenic point for gazing at Tokyo Skytree.

After Sumida Park, you will have lunch in Asakusa, then go to Shibuya by subway. In Shibuya, you’ll experience the Shibuya scramble intersection, which is the busiest pedestrian intersection in the world. 3,000 people may cross on one green light, and 500,000 to 1 million people cross here in a single day. After crossing the scrambled intersection, you will go to Meiji Dori, exit the Cat Street, and head towards Harajuku. Running in parallel with Meiji Dori, connecting Shibuya and Harajuku, Cat Street is a promenade built on the old Shibuya River, which was once flowing underneath. This is a perfect spot to feel state-of-the-scene Japanese youth culture.

You will then pass through Omotesando, heading on to Meiji Shrine. This is where the Emperor Meiji built the cornerstones of modernization of Japan from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. It is a sacred spot with a distinct quiet from the hustle and bustle of the surroundings. At the end of 2016, the approach to the main hall was paved for wheelchair accessibility, making it a more perfect spot for this tour. After visiting Meiji Shrine, you will return to your hotel and end the tour. Together with a guide that knows about Tokyo, you will have a wonderful and carefree day.
