Full description
Book this private tour for 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours and you will be contacted soon afterwards with some questions about your preferences so that you can be assigned a like-minded host to take you through the city. Enjoy discovering Tokyo’s must-see places, shrines, markets, and the most famous tourist sites as well as its hidden gems and lesser known hotspots. 

Keeping your interests in mind, a bespoke flexible itinerary will be created for you. A meeting with your guide will be arranged at a place most convenient for you. If during the tour you feel like changing direction or plans, just let the guide know. If your guide believes you'd enjoy a particular site or experience, they will suggest this and make changes to the itinerary.

You could kick off your trip with a trip to the iconic Sensoji Temple, located at the historic center of the Asakusa district, before heading off to awe-inspiring Asakusa-jinja Shrine. If you would like to take in the rich natural beauty while having a spot of fun then Ueno is your next stop. This old downtown area is not far from Asakusa an is home to Ueno Park. Here you will find a zoo, museums, beautiful park as well as historical monuments. 

For something a little different, you could take a bit of time to watch sumo wrestlers training in the city center or you could have fun go-karting, playing an arcade game at the Anata No Warehouse, or grabbing a bite at the Robot Restaurant, where you can see a robot show while eating.
