Tokyo's Cutting-edge Fashion


If you have even a little bit interest in fashion, Tokyo is the place to go. Especially young Japanese who feel the need to express themselves through fashion, don't hold back, which results in the wildest of styles. A combination between traditional Japan on the one hand, and post techno pop culture on the other, results in a feast for the eye for any traveler to Tokyo.

Tokyo Fashion Week


Right in the tail of the various fashion weeks in cities such as Paris, Milan and New York, the whole circus travels to Tokyo and sets up camp to present the latest styles Japanese designers have on offer. For fashion lovers, the perfect time to visit Japan is doubtlessly during MBFW Tokyo! Although many showcases are on invitation only, there are also many parties for people like you and me.

Beginners' Crash Course in Tokyo's Street Fashion

Tokyo Tour Guide - Grant A.

My name is Grant I lived more than 10 years in Japan. I graduated University and translation school in Tokyo. I am fluent in Japanese. I have a degree in Asian studies and have expert-level knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I have memorized the JR rail system across all of Japan, I use the same train timetable calculators as the station staff, and I have experience using bullet train passes that are exclusive to foreign visitors. I can optimally navigate the Tokyo underground and maximize value from a Tokyo metro pass and also understand Tokyo above ground which will allow for seamless transitions between different metro stations and landmarks with minimal backtracking. *There will be a price revision at the end of June* My tour fee is Half-Day Tour: 20,000yen for 1-5hours Full-Day Tour: 40,000yen for 5-10hours The time transiting to and from your hotel for pick up or drop off within Tokyo 23wards does not count towards the time. I am also able to guide historical sites and cities such as Kyoto, Kanazawa, Nikko, and Kamakura on request if you pay my rail fare.                                                                                                                                  

Kanagawa Tour Guide - Kaneo U.

4.98 / 5

I’m so excited to have a chance to show you around my favorite spots in Kanagawa prefecture. I was born in Kanagawa. I spent my whole school life, including university, here in Kanagawa. I worked as a high school English teacher here for 40 years. I love Kanagawa so much. We have many interesting tourist spots, like Hakone, Kamakura, Enoshima and Yokohama. I got my tour guide license in English in 2009. I am still an English teacher. To give an interesting and impressive lesson to young high school students, I’ve learnt and gathered many kinds of information. I also have a license to teach social studies, so I have a wide range of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. I’m sure to provide you an interesting tour.
