Discover the charms of Tokyo and those essential places of the city that you can not miss. Temple and shrines, shops, less touristy neighborhoods, viewpoints and more.

・Private 4-hour tour in Tokyo (east side or west side)
・Have your tour be tailored to suit your interests.
・Visit some of the city's most iconic sights as well as discovering places off the beaten path.

What to Expect

This private tour is full of advantages. It will be adapted to your schedule and you can maximize your limited time in Tokyo.

I'd like you to choose either western Tokyo or eastern Tokyo to explore on this 4-hour tour. They have quite opposite atmospheres - we have Imperial palace in the center of Tokyo and west side of it is about everything new, pop culture, fashion, endless skyscrapers and in contrast, east side has old townscapes, temples, Japanese gardens, etc.

West Tokyo: Shibuya crossing, Harajuku fashion street, Shinjuku neon lights
East Tokyo: Tsukiji fish market, Asakusa Sensoji temple, Yanaka old town

Tokyo is a city of contrasts. Let me help you organize your day so that you can get around efficiently and truly enjoy this unique city.

Once booked the tour, I'll be in touch with you to start creating a perfect tour for you.

Konnichiwa I’m Eriko. I love showing people around Tokyo that I call home. Tokyo is truly a city of many faces and has something for everyone from ancient temples, high-tech culture, to quirky themed restaurants. I have high regard for Japanese traditional culture. My great grandfather was a kimono maker in the early 1900's, and I am honored to wear the kimonos that he created. I'm really looking forward to sharing beautiful moments with you and becoming your first Japanese friend!
I can customize a tour for you - a couple of hours to multiple days. Please feel free to contact me. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. read more
