Meet your guide in Asakusa at 9:30am, ready for a 7-hour Muslim-friendly tour of Tokyo. Together with your small group, head for the colorful Buddhist temple of Senso-ji for a stroll around the grounds. After taking a souvenir photo in front of the imposing Kaminarimon, or 'Thunder Gate,' take a walk down bustling Nakamise shopping street to try some tasty snacks (own expense) and check out some of the many historic stores.

Then, see the marvelous architecture and Japanese garden which surrounds Senso-ji before having lunch (own expense) at Halal-certified ramen restaurant next to the temple.

After lunch, take the Ginza-line Metro (own expense) to Shibuya station to see the infamous 'scramble' at Shibuya Crossing. Get your camera ready for the moment the traffic light changes and about 3,000 people cross the intersection at once.
