Overview

Tokyo is one of the world's largest business centers. It has been the capital of Japan since 1868. Until then, it had been home to the military government, the Tokugawa shogunate. There are a lot of historic and modern places. This tour includes the most popular spots. I am sure you can have a good time in this tour.

What to Expect

First you visit Meiji Shrine, which is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the Emperor Meiji who led Japan to a modernized country. It is one of the largest shrines in Tokyo and attracts more than 3 million people during the first three days of the year. It is surrounded by over 120 thousand trees which were donated by people from all over Japan when the shrine was founded in 1920. It is like an oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.

Then, you walk along the Omote-sando Shopping Street near Meiji Shrine. There are many shops and restaurants. You drop in at the shop called "Oriental Bazaar," which sells various traditional Japanese things such as folding fans, ukiyo-e woodblock prints and Kimono.

After lunch, you move to Tokyo Station by using the JR train. It is one of the largest terminal stations in Japan and a terminal for the Shinkansen Bullet trains. The station opend 100 years ago and the station building is registered as the national cultural asset. It was damaged by air raids in the last war in 1945 and repaired soon after the war. Two years ago it was eventually restored to an original building.

Then you walk to the Imperial Palace, which is located just in front of the station. You can see Nijubashi or the Duble Bridge and the Japanese garden in the East Garden of the Imperial Palace. The Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko are living inside the Palace grounds. The Imperial Palace are not open to the public except on January 2nd and December 23rd (Emperor's Birthday). The East Garden is open to the public except on Mondays and Fridays and designated days.

Then you head for Sensoji Temple in Asakusa by subway. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Tokyo. It is a Buddhist temple dating back to 7th century. It attracts more than 20 million people every year. Asakusa retains the atmosphere of the old town in the Edo Period (**********). You can enjoy shopping and experiencing Japanese food. There is a festival held in early May in Asakusa. It is very energetic and many portable shrines called Mikoshi parade through the town, carried on participants' shoulders.
