Description

This is a private tour with a taxi and guide. With your local driver and your licensed tour guide, your travels within the Tokyo city limits will not only be fun and exciting, but will also be easy!

You can decide where to visit and what to do during the tour. For reference, our sample itinerary is as follows: 

At 9am, your guide will meet you at your hotel and take you to the chartered taxi. After a short ride, the first stop is Tsukiji Fish Market. This is the wholesale market for fish, fruits and vegetables. Being the most famous market in Tokyo, this is one of the most popular spots for both foreign tourists and Japanese alike. You can enjoy the vigorous atmosphere, and it is a good idea to have a breakfast or an early lunch, or at least a small bite.
After that, you will visit Imperial Palace Plaza. Nijubashi Bridge, which this place is famous for, would be the perfect place for photo-shooting.

Then the tour continues to Asakusa. The big vermilion lantern on the Kaminarimon Gate welcomes you, and going under that, you will see lots of shops (mainly snacks and souvenirs) lining up on both sides of the long street, which leads to Asakusa Temple. Please enjoy the lively atmosphere of this entertainment district. Walking along the street itself is quite fun, but this place offers you a lot of attractions; to name a few, Rakugo shows (a comical story telling), “Hanayashiki”, which is the oldest amusement park in Japan, Omatsuri Museum where you can learn about local festivals.

Next, you will go to Omotesando and Shibuya. There are lots of shops which are popular among teenagers in these areas. In Shibuya, the car will pass the famous Shibuya crossing.

The final stop is Meiji Jingu Shrine. Dedicated to Emperor Meiji (1852-1912) and Empress Shoken (1849-1914), this shrine is situated in a very large forested area in the central Tokyo. There are approximately 100,000 trees which were donated from various regions across Japan, making this place very tranquil. You can see some typical Shinto symbols such as Torii gates, votive picture tablets, written oracles, wine and sake barrels, etc. If you are lucky, you might have a chance to see happy couples in the traditional wedding kimono.

After visiting the shrine, the car will take you back to the hotel at around 5pm.

This itinerary is merely a suggestion. Please advise us of your interests or wishes so that we can propose the itinerary that best suits you.
