WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Tokyo Imperial Palace
Come see where the Emperor of Japan and his family currently reside, Tokyo's Imperial Palace. Rebuilt on the former grounds of Edo Castle, a fifteenth-century fortress, the outskirts of this impressive palace feature a large park surrounded by deep moats and massive stone walls. It is also home to Japan's most famous bridge, Nijubashi, or "the Double Bridge," seen by many as the true symbol of Tokyo. Guests can further choose to visit the palace's East Gardens, where they can see the foundations of the former castle tower, as well as several entrances and guardhouses from the samurai era.
Meiji Jingu Shrine
Take a stroll around Tokyo's most popular shrine, Meiji Jingu. Meiji Jingu is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji, the most influential Japanese emperor in history and the leader responsible for the complete modernization of Japan. A lush shrine, it is surrounded by a tranquil forest of over 100,000 evergreen trees and it is flanked by several towering torii gates made of Taiwanese cypress. With an area spanning 170 acres, Meiji Jingu Shrine is also home to the Meiji Jingu Museum, with its many royal treasures, the Inner Garden, known for its irises, and the Kiyomasa Well, which has a status among Japanese people as a great "power spot."
Wander around beautiful Asakusa, once the main downtown of Tokyo, and home to the city's most famous temple, Senso-ji. Built in the 7th century, Sensoji is a rich and large temple complex with a bustling traditional shopping street on its approach, and the iconic and impressive Kaminarimon Gate at its start, with its large red hanging lantern. Other popular sights to see in Asakusa include Asakusa Shrine, Sumida Park, and the gorgeously designed Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center.
Discover fashion, food, and art in Harajuku, Tokyo's cutest and quirkiest neighborhood, renowned for its youth fashion.
As part of this option, your guide will show you around the likes of Takeshita Street, Harajuku's most famous area, lined with colorful vintage clothing stores, whacky-themed cafes, delicious dessert shops, and more bubblegum-sweet pop culture than you can imagine.
Akihabara is known as the anime and idol's otaku capital of Japan. On this tour, we will tell you about the history of Akihabara as the electric town and guide you inside the maid cafe.
The best examples of Tokyo's neon lights can be found northeast of Shinjuku station, in the red light area of Kabukicho. On this tour, we will also head to Shinjuku-Golden-Gai and feel its retro atmosphere, where approximately 200 bars, pubs, and eateries concentrated on six small back alleys.
Shibuya is Tokyo's commercial and business center, and arguably the most energetic district in Japan. In this option, you will explore the colorful and busy streets of Shibuya's lively shopping area, where hundreds of shops, restaurants, and nightclubs of almost every genre stay open until the very late hours. Your guide will also take you around some of Shibuya's most famous sightseeing spots, such as Hachiko's statue, and Shibuya Scramble, the world's busiest crosswalk bordered by futuristic neon advertisements and high-rises.
