I'll pick up you at your hotel and take you to less touristic areas, Fukagawa and Shibamata, which are reminiscent of old townscape in Edo, former name of Tokyo. You can enjoy more comfortable and traditional atmosphere apart from the hustle and bustle of popular sightseeing spots in Tokyo. And at the end of my tour I'll take you to your favorite shopping area, Ginza or Shibuya before leaving.
Check out what we are going to do.
