This 4-hour half day tour will take you to some must see spots in the heart of Tokyo. The rout will change as to the place of your stay. We will exchange e-mail and make it best for your trip.

What to Expect

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could walk in the center of Tokyo like an Edokko, a native-born Tokyoite? I’d be happy to help you walk like that even if you’ve just arrived here as a new visitor.

Ai’s 'Tokyo, Old & New Tour’ Course 1 will take you to Asakusa, Kabukiza-theatre, Ginza, and Shimbashi areas.

Asakusa has long been known as ‘Shitamachi’, low city of Tokyo where the city’s merchants and artisans have lived for a long time since Edo period;17th to 19th centuries. It has a big temple complex, and is as crowded as in the old days, though the giant tower there was replaced by a huge Tokyo Sky Tree build on the opposite side of Sumida River.

Riding on the train, we’ll head for Ginza next, after a short visit to Kabukiza theatre.  Ginza is one of the most famous shopping districts in the world. It is the home to old stately stores, and constantly claims the highest land prices in Japan for more than 30 years.

We will then walk toward Shimbashi station, the birthplace of Japan’s railways.

Riding on the train, we’ll go back to your hotel.

Dear friends,

I was born in Tokyo and brought up in Yokohama, near Tokyo. All my ancestors were born in Tokyo for more than 300 years, as long as I know. I’ve been working in the field of education for a long time enjoying communicating with people of different generations, ethnic backgrounds, men & women, dogs, cats, birds and flowers, fish…….

Now, are you wondering about making your tour schedule ?
“I want to see cherry blossoms in Japan, but they die away so quickly…its’ over? Oh? Can I see them in Hakone, but, is Hakone far and also crowded? Umm….’’
“I want to see Tokyo, but the bay area in Yokohama looks charming, too. Can I see both? The time I can spend there is limited, umm….”
“Can I have some unique experience or workshop in Tokyo, not just a well-known sightseeing tour?”

If so, please let me know. I’ll suggest the following plan, as an example:

Day 1: (Afternoon) Half day tour in Tokyo; (Evening) Bay side cruise in Yokohama
Day 2: (Start early in the morning to Hakone)
Day 3: There are 2 choices: 1st option- Stay overnight in Hakone, enjoying hot springs, viewing gorgeous Mt. Fuji in the evening and early in the following morning (and move to Kyoto from Odawara station if you’re planning on the following day)/ 2nd option- Come back to Tokyo after the day trip and enjoy some unique cultural experiences.

Looking forward to seeing you in Japan, Ai
