Meddle with the fashion-hungry crowd of Harajuku's main street Takeshita-dori and explore the quiet backstreets.

Cross Omotesando, Tokyo's Champs Elysées, and enjoy the casual atmosphere of Cat Street.

Ending Point

What to Expect

The tour is a long stroll to be followed at your own pace. Shinjuku-gyoen is possibly Tokyo's most beautiful park, being very big it will be up to you how long

to spend there. The tropical greenhouse is definitely worth a visit.The entrance to Meiji Jingu is a 15 minutes walk away from the park's south exit. The shrine's park ends right in front of Harajuku station. The distance from the entrance of Cat Street to Shibuya station can be covered in 20 minutes.

There will be plenty of time to visit the respective areas thoroughly.

Of course the route can be varied on request, just let me know what would you like to add or skip.

Great day in Tokyo on a bilingual tour

Really great tour guide. Did tour in Speanish and English. He’s quite knowledgeable about Japan, has great insights into less touristy areas, and a great sense of humor. Appreciated his willingness to check on the comfort of everyone as we were a mixed-aged bilingual group. Thank you Fulvio for a great day.
