Full description
Join a friendly local guide to get an authentic experience of Japan’s electrifying capital city. Get a personalized tour of the city’s fascinating history, culture, and fantastic food scene as you’re led down its liveliest streets – and a few off the well-trodden tourist trail.

First, meet your guide at the 1300-year-old Sensō-ji temple, the oldest in the city, in the heart of the historic Asakusa district. Get a lesson in Tokyo’s ancient Buddhist history, and see the awe-inspiring Asakusa Shrine, which honors the three founders of the Sensō-ji.

Then, walk the traditional streets to the neighboring Ueno district, an old downtown area that’s home to several attractions like museums, historical monuments and the popular Ueno zoo, all found inside the sprawling 150-year-old Ueno Park.

Intrigued by Tokyo’s national sport? Head to the riverside Ryogoku district, the heartland of professional sumo. See all sorts of fascinating sumo paraphernalia, small statues of yokozuna (the highest-ranking sumo wrestlers), and Ryogoku Kokugikan – Tokyo’s famous sumo stadium.

There’s really no limit to what you can see and do in Tokyo, and there’s something for absolutely everyone. Whizz around on a go-kart, play retro arcade games in the Anata No Warehouse, and grab a quick bite at the Robot Restaurant – where you’ll be entertained by robotic monsters, dancers, and flashing lasers!

Your personalized itinerary will be planned according to the number of hours booked and adapted to your preferences. Once you’ve booked, someone from the local supplier's team will be in touch, so let them know if you have any special requirements.

Giovanni is an excellent guide who provided us with helpful insight into Tokyo. In additon to showing us the highlights of numerous neighboroods on our tour, he also gave us excellebt suggestions for the remainder of our stay. Also, the hands on tutorial of the subway system is invaluable for a first time Tomyo tourist.

We were originally assigned a Guide, who became unavailable on very short notice, but "Get-Your-Guide promptly matched us with a different American-Born Guide, Jordyn, who was most competent, knowledgeable, articulate, & enthusiastic, Jordyn created from "from scratch," an itinerary that closely followed our wishes. We were unfamiliar with Tokyo, surprised at the city's enormity spread over such a large area. Although our desires were overly ambitious, Jordyn rose to the occasion with an exemplary tour of a city she so clearly loves. It was a bonus to have a guide that communicated well, listened well, & was so motivated to please us. Thank-you, Jordyn, for an outstanding, action-packed tour of a most wonderful city!
