Great for first-time visitors! Get familiar with Tokyo's basics including public transport.
This is the best tour for first-timers, especially as the Day-2 morning tour!
By walking and talking with me, a 40-year-long resident of Tokyo, you will get to know about the various faces of Tokyo, such as tradition, history, society, nice food, safeness and organized public transport. If necessary, I will let you know the basics of how to go around by public transport, which will be helpful when you do that by yourself.
At Meiji Jingu shrine, a Shinto shrine dedicated to Meiji Emperor, you can have a nice heeling walk through the city-center forest to the shrine and pray for wishes. In Shibuya, you can be in the middle of the famous world's busiest crossing and see the statue of 'Hatchi, ' a movie-featured dog. In Asakusa, you will visit Sensoji temple, the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo. The tour ends in Ginza or any central Tokyo location of your preference, where you can start your free time.

Chiaki was wonderful !! She was so helpful with navigating Shinjuku Station and securing information for the next leg of our trip. She was able to make a rainy stormy day so enjoyable with options of alternative indoor activates. Can't thank her enough!
