Overview

Once a small castle town, Tokyo is now one of the world’s most populous and visited cities. Dive deep into the history and culture of this fascinating metropolis during a private, customizable tour of the Japanese capital. From Meiji Shrine—Japan’s most popular Shinto landmark—to the trendy shops of Harajuku, your very own local guide helps you discover incredible sights that suit every taste and time frame.

What to Expect

Opt for a half-day or full-day guided tour and craft your own one-of-a-kind sightseeing itinerary. For history and culture buffs, you might choose to begin a half-day tour with a visit to Meiji Shrine and its famous massive torii (gates), then move on to the beautiful, expansive gardens of the Imperial Palace. Or you could opt for an in-depth neighborhood tour for an insider’s look at fashion hot spots like Harajuku, Omotesando, or Shibuya.

On full-day tours, you have time to take in even more of the city. Possibly begin by observing sushi chefs haggle for fish at Tsukiji, the world’s largest seafood market. Stroll through gardens like 17th-century Koishikawa Korakuen or Shinjuku Gyoen, once the grounds of a private Edo mansion, and stop into some of the city’s world-famous museums.

For custom excursions on foot, you and your guide use the city’s public transportation system, giving you time to explore neighborhoods at a leisurely pace. If you’ve upgraded to the private vehicle option, enjoy door-to-door pick-up and time to cover more attractions.

Yes, it is a private tour and you nominate the number when you access the booking site. The guide was great in matching my interests with the appropriate area, before the day! Cheers
