Tour Important Information

This tour has a lot of walking.

Kabukicho has some touts and sketchy people that come out after sunset - but there is no need to worry since I know which places are legitimate.

Great start to our trip

We asked for a few hour tour with Grant to see Cherry Blossoms around the city. Grant was incredibly nice and thoughtful throughout our tour. With two small kids, he was adjustable with the tour and provided insight and history along the way that made it fun to learn. He was very flexible when we needed to stop and eat or rest! Highly recommend Grant as he knows the area well, makes great recommendations for food and for other sites to see while on our trip. He also showed and recommended places our kids wanted to go once he knew what they were into. Great tour and great start to our trip!!!
