Full description
Strut your way into the sparkling, luxurious world of Ginza, Tokyo’s glitziest district, where streets feel like catwalks and you can wine and dine your way through the city’s top cuisine.  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.  You could shop till you drop in mega-department stores like Wako, a luxury goods palace distinguished by an iconic clock tower, or you could splash out and savor some fine dining at The Grand 47, a modern take on classic Japanese cuisine. Absorb some culture at Kabukiza, a playhouse where Ginza celebrates the ancient art of kabuki theater, or, if you’re tired of the excess, let your host lead you to hidden gems like Yurakucho Gado-shita, a diverse collection of tiny restaurants built under the Yamanote railway line, which serve up everything from fine French wine to cheap local street food. 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. You will be contacted within 24 hours to discuss your interests and requests, so that you will be paired with a like-minded local host. A bespoke itinerary will be built based on what you would like to see and do. Benefit from an itinerary that is fully flexible and change direction at any point during your tour.

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.
