Overview

This tour offers one of Tokyo's most popular districts, Harajyuku, Omotesando, Shibuya and Shinjyuku in which you will find traditional and modern side of Japan coexist.
A solemn Meiji shrine, Takeshita street, Ota Memorial Museum Of Art featuring Japanese woodblock prints, Shibuya Scramble Crossing and Shinjyuku. The customer can also enjoy Japanese food culture in this tour!!

What to Expect

Harajyuku, Shibuya and Omotesando area is in the west side of central Tokyo, which is often told as a fashion mecca for young people. Believe it or not, however, it is enjoyable for all the generations!!
Meiji shrine is a solem shrine dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. It is so quiet with thousands of trees that you may forget you are in the world busiest city of Tokyo. It is called an oasis of Tokyo.
Oposite side of Harajyuku station, there is the world famouse Takeshita street lined up with catchy shops and food stands that sell coloful and fancy clothes and food. Once you enter the street, you will be enchanted by its enthusiastic atmosphere. Visiting animal Cafe or Kawaii Monster Cafe can be an experience!!
Ota Memorial Museum Of Art which is just 5 minutes away from Harajyuku station fetures traditional Japanese Ukiyoe or woodblock prints created in the Edo period. It's worth visiting and looking at those works not only as an Art but also a material to know what Japanese people were doing, wearing, eating back then.

Then the tour offers you the world famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing where almost 3,000 people cross from all directions without batting each other! Just standing at the site reminds you one scene from a movie! There is also a statue of Hachi, the dog which was loyal to his master. If you hear his story, you will want to take a picture or two wiht Hachi!!

Final spots are in Shinjyuku. You can enjoy the spectacular view of Greater Tokyo from the observation floor of Tokyo Metropolitan Governemtn Office Building.
Lastly, the tour offers you traditional Izakaya restraurant at Omoide Yokocho or Isetan department store's basement floor where even Japanese people enjoy beautifully packed food and lunch boxes. You can pick up some food for dinner!!

“ Excellent service by Eiko. ”

Eiko has the personality of a good tourguide. She is amiable, patient and works hard to please her clients. She’s prompt in her replies and always thinking what would benefit her clients the most. We had a wonderful experience of Tokyo and Hakone with all the help provided by Eiko considering that my husband has a health issue. We thank TripleLights specially Eiko for the excellent service.

Eiko:

Hi Luna!! Thank you very much for such a wonderful review!! You and your family were all very nice and it was my pleasure to have been with you for two days in Tokyo and Hakone!! Thank you for treating me as a part of your family all the time. We had exchanged a lot of messages about our tour to Hakone before your actual visit to Japan. Although Mt. Fuji was a little too shy that day, I was so happy when we arrived safely at Tokyo station by Shinkansen, bullet train which was your husband’s number 1 wish about the Hakone tour. :-) I’m looking forward to your next trip to Japan!! Take care!! Eiko

“ Tokyo Private Tour ”

We had 2 great days in Tokyo and Kamakura with Eiko. To start with she was very quick to respond to any and all queries as we were getting our customized tour ready to go. She constantly followed up so I always felt a high level of engagement. Her input was fantastic and she went out of her way to accommodate my wife's love of gardens. She was very prompt and courteous and her knowledge of the areas we visited was amazing. I would highly recommend Eiko for any period of time in Tokyo! Thanks Eiko for a wonderful experience!

Eiko:

Hi Peter and Mary!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! :-) How is your stomach, Peter? I can’t believe it’s been almost one week since our Kamakura tour. It was so much fun to visit many places and share my favorite things with you. You and Mary always showed great interests to what I explained. You were such a wonderful couple that I felt like we had been friends for a long time by the end of our tour. You were too nice to me. Again, thank you very much for having me as your Tokyo And Kamakura guide! Please come back to Japan again soon!! Take care!! Eiko

“ Perfect Day one Tokyo ”

As a traveler who has seen 36 countries with my daughter I have to day Eiko is one of the best! Eiko understood the type of travelers we were and allowed us to feel at home in Tokyo. Eiko was full of useful information and she was so kind and patient with us. We loved all of her recommendations. By the end of the tour leaving Eiko was like parting with an old friend. Great Day! Thank you Eiko for showing us as much of Japan as possible!

Eiko:

Hi April and Abby! I think you are on the plane for Thailand now. I'm hoping you are having a comfortable flight. Thank you so much for such a wonderful review especially when you had little time!! I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed the places and things on the itinerary I made for you! It was so hot and humid but you and Abby never complained and walked with me. You were so nice to me too!! We had a lot of fun, and I'm guessing Abby's favorite was the animal cafe! Again, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your memories of Tokyo this time. And I really hope to see you again soon!! Eiko

“ Four wonderful days with Eiko ”

Our family (me, my wife, and our 19 year old daughter) spent a delightful four days with Eiko touring Tokyo during our recent trip to Japan. Eiko designed a great, customized itinerary which incorporated both our suggestions for sites we wanted to visit and specific locations of interest to our daughter, who is an artist. Eiko has a wonderful sense of humor, was very helpful, and we enjoyed our time with her immensely.

Eiko:

Dear Ed, Trish and Lily, It's so nice to hear from you!! I hope everybody is fine! Thank you very much for such a wonderful review with five stars!! I'm so happy about it! We walked a lot, didn't we?! And we talke and laught a lot too!! The memory of those four days with you and your family will stay in me as a forever treasure. Thanks for having me as your Tokyo guide!! I really hope to see you again in the future. Until then. Take care!!
