Full description
Discover Ginza through the eyes of a local on a fully customizable tour of one of Tokyo's most interesting areas. Stroll the Ginza district and uncover the heart of the city's most popular place for entertainment, shops and flashing lights.  Be matched to a knowledgeable local guide based on your interests and personality Start with a walk through the Chūō district, closed to vehicles at the weekend and sometimes home to small street concerts. Go to Tsukiji Market and marvel at the organized chaos of the legendary fish market; or get involved if you are feeling brave!  If you are traveling with kids, or just young at heart, and fancy exploring one of Japan's most famous toy stores, go to the Hakuhinkan Toy Park and discover giant stuffed toys and tons of other goodies to indulge your playful side. Pop into some of the countless designer stores or follow your host to one of the less-expensive shops to save some cash. Discover traditional stores, such as Kyukyodo, where the beautiful Japanese paper, cards and fans are a feast for the eyes. If you prefer, your host can leave you outside the famous Kabukiza, where you can watch one off the acts or performances at leisure. Alternatively, they can take you to one of their favorite restaurants or izakayas (a casual dining venue) so you can sample some authentic Japanese food and drinks on your own. The possibilities are endless in Ginza and your local host will design the best experience for you and your group, all based on your interests and desired length of your adventure.

Sergio was a fantastic guude! Would absolutely book him again!

My daughter and I were visiting Japan for the first time and our first stop was Tokyo Ginza area. We booked a 2 hour walking tour for the day we arrived because we only had a week in japan and did not want to spend time trying to figure everything out on our own. Sergio was our guide he met us promptly at our hotel. We asked him if he would show us the area and teach us how to use the subway. He took us to some fantastic spots and showed us some very cool stuff that we would not have discovered by ourselves and that weren't in any guidebook. By learning the subway and getting the inside scoop on great things to visit in Tokyo we saved so much time. We were really able to hit the highlights in a very short amount of time. Sergios guidance helped our trip to be so much more better than it would have been otherwise. I can definitely reccomend this tour company and our guide Sergio to anyone!!

The guide was a little bit vague on the history of the areas we visited.
