Interested in art and architecture? Would you like to visit small art galleries that are difficult for first-time visitors to find? Join this tour and stroll around Ginza!

I'll introduce you such galleries, stylish architectures and shops selling artistically displayed goods.

What to Expect

I think the Ginza area itself is like a huge museum with lots of galleries, stylish buildings and sophisticated shops. We'll visit several small art galleries mainly exhibiting modern art works while watching unique architectures on our way. Museums and architectures shown below as highlights are only a small part. I can't write down all because there are too many! I'll pick up some of them in this tour. Admission fee? Don't worry. No admission fee is required! They want to nurture artists or just introduce their works, so all the galleries included in this tour are free of charge. Isn't that great? (Most of them are small ones. Just two or three rooms.) If you like, I can also take you to shops selling Japanese pottery, cloisonne, swords, paper, stationery and so on. Let's enjoy exploring Ginza together!

“ Dedicated, organized and communicative -- in short simply excellent. ”

Jolly is a dedicated guide which plans and communicates her itineraries above and beyond what is expected. Her command of English is superb. She'll strive to understand your interests and priorities then make detailed plans to make the most of your time. In addition, she also laid out best ways to get around the city before and after the tour to ensure that we are taken care of beyond the scope of the tour. Our day with Jolly was beset by heavy rains and she always had alternate plans ready. Rain or shine, you are going to have a fantastic time with Jolly.

Jolly:

Hello! Thank you for taking your time to write such a sweet review! I feel so happy to hear from you. Although the weather was not so good...I have to admit we had sooooaking rains..., still I enjoyed the tour so much because I was with you; a wonderful family! All of you are so polite, kind, gentle and cheerful! And how adorable your child was! I was also impressed by your abundant knowledge about Japanese history and language as well. Thanks to rain, we saw beautifully-washed green in the Imperial East garden... Again thank you so much for finding me out and share your time with me! Warm regards, Jolly
