Overview

Visit some of Tokyo's most famous spots by taking a long, quiet stroll through the city.
From serene greenery to urban chaos via Japan's most revered shrine and Tokyo's most fashionable district.

What to Expect

The tour is a long stroll to be followed at your own pace. Shinjuku-gyoen is possibly Tokyo's most beautiful park, being very big it will be up to you how long
to spend there. The tropical greenhouse is definitely worth a visit.The entrance to Meiji Jingu is a 15 minutes walk away from the park's south exit. The shrine's park ends right in front of Harajuku station. The distance from the entrance of Cat Street to Shibuya station can be covered in 20 minutes.
There will be plenty of time to visit the respective areas thoroughly.
Of course the route can be varied on request, just let me know what would you like to add or skip.

“ Tokio desde la ?ptica de un italiano ,fue un gu?a muy paciente,nos llevo a los lugares solicitados, jardines ,parques con cerezos en flor,yanaka,,ueno, ”

Fue un guía agradable y paciente, nos ayudó a manejarnos en la cuidad,nos llevó a los lugares solicitados y previamente nos aconsejó como nos armarla el recorrido,siendo la época de los cerezos muy complicada para trasladarse, parques abarrotados de gente, responde enseguida los mensajes.su punto de vista como no asiático nos ayudó a comprender a los tokiotas,.nos hubiera gustado más explicaciones sobre la historia de cada lugar,.

“ Super tour from a very international perspective ”

We had a most enjoyable tour with Fulvio. He set out a varied and interesting itinerary. His knowledge of the city was substantial. He supplemented this with considerable background knowledge of pertinent religious, architectural and general knowledge of the city that he has personally researched. Intelligent and multilingual, he brings a much more objective and relevant perspective of city life that is particularly suited for a visiting traveler. I would recommend him thoroughly.

Fulvio:

Thank you very much. I learned a lot from the four of you too: if i could write reviews of guests you'd definitely get five stars.
