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...

“ Great day in Tokyo on a bilingual tour ”

Really great tour guide. Did tour in Speanish and English. He’s quite knowledgeable about Japan, has great insights into less touristy areas, and a great sense of humor. Appreciated his willingness to check on the comfort of everyone as we were a mixed-aged bilingual group. Thank you Fulvio for a great day.

“ Una persona davvero speciale che ci ha aiutato tanto a Tokyo! ”

Abbiamo prenotato Fulvio per il primo giorno e mezzo a Tokyo, avevamo pensato di fare Asakusa e Meiji-Jingu, il museo di Hokusai, il giardino di Kiyosumi, Senso-ji, Omotesando e Shibuya...e siamo riusciti a fare tutto! (Aggiunggendo anche un tempio buddista alla mattina) Fulvio ci ha aiutato con i biglietti Pasmi appena arrivati e ci ha dato qualche dritto per sopravivere nella città. E' pieno di racconti del vivere in Giappone, le usanze...ci è piaciuto tanto. Grazie Fulvio!!
