Whether you just got off the plane and you want to get acquainted with the city or you are in town for a very short time and you want to take in as much as possible, this
tour could just be your best solution. By moving around Tokyo by train and on foot we will be skipping back and forth from the quiet neighbourhoods to the crowded
spots, from small wooden houses to skyscrapers in just 8 hours.


Feel free to personalize this offer with Fulvio.

  • Take in the grace of Kiyosumi Shirakawa's 400 years old garden.

  • Visit the bizzare Buddhist temple and the traditional Shinto shrine of Monzen Nakacho.

  • Enjoy the capital of Japanese pop culture, Akihabara.

  • Stroll through the handicraft market of AkiOka, under the railway tracks.

  • Make your way through the crowd of AmeYoko's street market.

  • Ueno park is one of Tokyo's iconic spots even when cherry trees aren't in bloom.

  • Approaching the old town of Yanaka on foot makes you enjoy even more the feeling of moving back in time to the old Tokyo.

“ Great day in Tokyo on a bilingual tour ”

Really great tour guide. Did tour in Speanish and English. He’s quite knowledgeable about Japan, has great insights into less touristy areas, and a great sense of humor. Appreciated his willingness to check on the comfort of everyone as we were a mixed-aged bilingual group. Thank you Fulvio for a great day.
