Tokyo is a gigantic city with many buildings, but there are many nice places where you can feel the good old Tokyo. In this tour, you will explore some sites with interesting historical backgrounds and at the end visit a state-of-art tower, Tokyo Sky Tree. You can enjoy the contrast of traditional and modern aspects of Tokyo and witness the size of the metropolitan area from the observatory.
What to Expect
You can visit some of the most renowned sites in Tokyo with some historical aspects of Japan.
Hamarikyu garden was developed as a hunting yard for a Tokugawa shogun(top of all the samurai warriors) initially.
(If you wish to add Tsukiji Fish Market, we can go before Hamarikyu garden as it is nearby. )
Sensoji Temple in Asakusa is the oldest temple in Tokyo. Every time it was burned down by fire, earthquake, war, etc., it was reestablished by donations and supports from common people, rich and famous people.
Tokyo Sky Tree is a state-of-art modern architecture, the highest self-standing tower in the world. From the observatory at 350m above the sea level, you can see the 360 degree majestic view of Tokyo on a clear day and feel the magnitude of the gigantic Tokyo metropolitan area. You can enjoy the contrast of old Tokyo and modern Tokyo.
Instead of Tokyo Sky Tree, you may choose to go to Ueno Toshogu, a shrine commemorating Tokugawa shoguns. You can see a beautiful Japanese building from the mid 17th century, one of the rare original building survived through the WW II in Tokyo. Also, as an optional, you can visit Ameyoko shopping street, a lively shopping area right by Ueno park.
Please wear comfortable shoes! The tour involves a lot of walking and taking trains would require going up and down the stairs.
