Important Information

For the public transport, the total cost should be minimal such as Yen 2000 for all day per adult. So, if walking is no problem, I would recommend the public transport and walking. Above tour plan is based on the idea of using public transport. (I would like to ask you to reimburse this Yen 2000 for me also.)

If you need a hired vehicle for any reasons, you could book a car or a van through Triple Lights. The standard cost for a hired vehicle would be approx. Yen 7000 per hour. This way, your mobility will be easier compared with the public transport and walking but of course, it will cost more.

Cancellation Policy

  • Free cancellation - 8 days prior to meeting time
  • 50% Refund - 3 to 7 days prior to meeting time
  • No Refund - Within 2 day(s) prior to meeting time

Exceptional Guide! We felt confident to ride the trains by ourselves after spending two days with Tom

Very patient, informative, fun & great with kids & teens. While my party does not have health conditions or impairments, in speaking with Tom, he is committed to offering an enjoyable, accessible tour to all people. My family and I appreciate so much what Tom did for us and we insist you consider having Tom show you around. He provided tons of photos and lots of commentary on the surrounding areas and while we do not speak Japanese, Tom s spoke to pharmacists, shop owners, and in restaurants on our behalf & helped us locate items. We did both of Tom's tours. He's incredibly patient and accommodating. On the second day, it rained the entire day & we went to the wrong train station, but he came to meet us in great spirit & modified the schedule to make up for lost time & to have as much reprieve from the rain as we could. He took us to different areas of the city & showed us many interesting landmarks. We did Starting the morning by traveling to the Tsukiji Hongwanji Temple, which ended up being one of my favorite stops. Such a beautiful, ornate Buddhist Temple. I could have sat there for hours. Hama-Rikyu Gardens were gorgeous, then heading to Tsukiji Outer/Fish Market. I love street food vendors and you could find such delicious, quick bites. Ginza District is very upscale & posh. We happened to visit on a holiday, and they close off the street from vehicles, so we were able to walk in the streets. After lunch we went to the huge outdoor market where we were able to find many items for purchase and the walkway led to a huge 5 level temple. The Fukagawa Edo Museum was so surprising and was unlike anything I had expected! We got exposure to the Edo time period in such an immersive way. Akihabara was very cool, I wish we had more time to have stayed in that area, but by this time it was the end of the day in our wildly soggy clothing and shoes (it was still raining) & needed to get back to our hotel. Even with that though, we had a truly a fantastic time & I know that we would not have been able to arrange such a varied day without Tom's expertise in curating experiences. Thank you so much. And with two days on the trains & walking with Tom, we were then able to get around on our own for our remaining two days in the city.

Fantastic! Providing a wonderful tour to all people

My family and I appreciate so much what Tom did for us during our time in Tokyo! So likeable, patient, informative, well versed & great with kids. We adamantly recommend Tom. Provided photos and lots of commentary on the surrounding areas and while we do not speak Japanese, Tom spoke to pharmacists, shop owners, and in restaurants on our behalf & helped us locate items. To those with health conditions or impairments, offering an enjoyable, accessible tour is very important to Tom as well. He took us to different areas of the city & showed us many interesting landmarks. Starting the morning in Shibuya, visiting that incredible "Scramble" crossing, taking great photos with Hachiko, then to the gorgeous Meiji Shrine area. Pristine gardens, the weather was great, there was a Chrysanthemum showcase & we saw two traditionally dressed "Just Married" couples, such a lovely sight. Harajuku & Imperial Palace stops were great as well. The view from the Sky Tower was unbelievable. It was truly a fantastic time & I know that we would not have been able to arrange such a day without Tom's expertise in curating such a wonderful experience.

Tom made the difference to our trip to Tokyo

It would be impossible to overstate just how much we enjoyed the company of Tom. His English is excellent. He was nice enough to explain not just what we were seeing, but the meaning behind what we were seeing. He explained during the day a lot of nuances about Japanese history and culture that made many things in Japan much more understandable. His suggestion for lunch venue was excellent. He explained how the trains work within Tokyo which made a difference for the rest of our stay. He also offered some really useful suggestions for further things to see as he got to know us. Nothing was too much trouble. By the end of the day, we felt as though he was an old friend rather than someone we met for the first time that morning. We highly recommend him.
