Overview

Make your tour around Tokyo a tailor-made experience meant to suit your expectations as much as possible.
Pick your favorites from the tentative list of things to do or ask for something in particular .
Based on your personal interests i'll research the possibilities the city has on offer.
This being Tokyo the possibilities are virtually unlimited...

What to Expect

Here is a list of potential places to go and things to do during your tour:
. the traditional gardens of Tokyo: Kiyosumi Shirakawa, Kyu-Furukawa, Hamarikyu...
- visit Asakusa, the Senso-ji temple, kitchenware street Kappabashi and the Kappa temple with its alleged mummified Kappa arm.
- see the city from one of its many observation decks
- stroll from Ueno park through old town Yanaka, all the way to the beautiful Nezu shrine
- in small neighbourhoods the shotengais, the traditional commercial streets, give you a feel of the real downtown Tokyo (for example:KiraKira Tachibana, Joyful Minowa...)
- ride the rollercoaster-like Yurikamome line to see the giant Gundam robot, the sight of Tokyo from the beach and, if you are into cars, the History garage.
- try the Earthquake simulator at the Disaster prevention center.
- see motorcycle races in Kawaguchi or boat races in Edogawa. And bet on them.
- the bizzarre buddhist temple in Monzen Nakacho also hosts an intense ceremony with drums, chants and fire.
- an early morning visit to a sumo stall can be arranged.
- walk from the bookstores of Jimbocho to the beautiful sight of Hijiri bridge. In the area you can visit a Russian Orthodox Cathedral, a Confucian temple and a beautiful
Shinto shrine.
- Ginza hosts a lot of small art galleries, the historical Okuno building and some stunning architecture.
- the improvised and avantgarde music scene is worth exploring, see a gig in one of the many tiny live houses, with just an handful of spectators.
- check out the weirdest or most impressive buildings, like the Reiyuukai temple in Minato, the iconic Nakagin in Ginza, the Eldorado in Waseda, the Kaigun in Shin-Okubo...
- take in Shibuya, Omotesando and the backstreets of Harajuku on a nice quiet stroll.
- and it goes on...

“ 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.
