Shibuya and Harajuku Tour

Grant was exceptional; he guided us on a walking tour through Shibuya, Harajuku, and nearby areas, creating a memorable experience for us. We were able to experience the public transport in Japan, and honestly it was really different from the public transport in the US. The highlight was our visit to the Pokemon Shop in Shibuya, which thrilled my son, a Pokemon enthusiast. It was truly a fantastic tour!
