Tsukiji Market

Tsukiji was the world's No.1 fish and vegetables market until 2018, when its wholesale section was moved to Toyosu. The retail section and a part of the wholesalers remained in Tsukiji, and the place is bustling with ordinary customers and professionals as before. The shelves are packed with seasonal goods of superior quality that cannot be found elsewhere and sampling them would be a good introduction to understanding our rich food culture. Ideal place to have an early lunch of sushi!

12:00 PM

Ginza

Two stations from Tsukiji is Ginza, Tokyo's most expensive and elegant shopping district. At the basement floor of a department store, you will find an incredible array of foods at delicatessen section.

01:30 PM

Asakusa

Asakusa is a temple town retaining an old-Edo (former Tokyo) feel. The Thunder Gate, with its iconic giant red lantern, and the Nakamise Shopping Street are the approach to the Senso-ji Temple. You can try various traditional sweets and enjoy looking at Edo-style goods sold along the street. At the Main Hall of the temple, let's pray for your safe trip!

03:00 PM

Kappabashi

Kappabashi, the 'kitchen utensils town', lies next to Asakusa. It is an 800m street almost entirely populated with shops supplying the restaurant trade. What you cannot miss here is the elaborate replica food, a Japanese invention. They are often displayed outside restaurants to show what you should expect for what price you pay. You may have found them very helpful when no English menu is provided. And they do look very tasty, don't they? Here you can actually make wax replica yourself. You would be really surprised to know how miraculously they are made, so come on, let's try!

(If you and your group wish to try other experiences instead of food replica making, like traditional indigo dyeing, please let me know.)

Fee: replica food making - ¥3,000/person, indigo dyeing experience - ¥2,000~/person

04:00 PM

Tawaramachi Station or Asakusa Station

End of the tour

04:30 PM

Optional: Tokyo Skytree (Tour extension is possible with extra fee)

The tour ends here, but if the weather is fine and you are still full of energy to call it a day, the Tokyo Skytree is right in front of you, so why not extend the tour a little and see the daytime view from its observation deck gradually change into the gorgeous night view? Tokyo Skytree is the world's tallest TV tower. At the foot of the tower is Soramachi, with 300 shops and restaurants, aquarium, planetarium, etc.

You can decide on the tour extension on the day of the tour, because the visibility depends largely on the day's weather. Extra hour cost: ¥6,000 per hour / group.

Admission Fee (adult/weekday or holiday): up to Tembo Deck at 350m ¥2,100 or ¥2,300/person, up to Tembo Galleria at 450m ¥3,100 or ¥3,400/person

Ending Point

At the place of last visit or at a pre-arranged place

Tokyo Tour Reviews

Really enjoyable tour with Keiko

We visited the Buddhist temple, business district, Tsukiji market and the Imperial Gardens. Keiko was a very good guide - good English , really knowledgable and full of insights into the history and culture of everywhere we visited. Also a thumbs up for all the recommendations of which market stalls to eat from. The tour was also made really easy as Keiko met us at our hotel and guided us through the subway network and changes between the lines. I’d recommend Keiko

Richard K.

Richard-san, Helen-san, thank you very much for your wonderful comments! I hope I could introduce at least some of the features of Japan, including an introduction to our rich food culture, and that you will be coming across a lot more as you cruise around and visit many other parts of Japan. Please continue enjoying our country - it's the best season now!

Great touring with Keiko today

Great experience with Keiko today. She was very professional and had a good of humor after we spent the day together.

Joyce-san, thank you very much for your nice comments. I greatly enjoyed walking and talking with you today and look forward to having another pleasant day together!

First time in Japan

Keiko was a wonderful guide, thorough, patient, kind, polite, intelligent, and informative. We could not have asked for a better guide to show us around Tokyo for our first time. Thank you Keiko and be well.

Earl  L.

Thank you very much for your kind words. The pleasure was mine, because I enjoyed immensely walking with your wonderful family. I hope you liked Japan and will come back once again in the not-too-distant future!

I will take you to the outer market of Tsukiji including its new fish retail area where you can see a lot of sea food including big tuna. There are many food shops but popular ones are over crowded with long lines. If you want to have a good sushi without waiting a long time, I can take you to my favorite sushi restaurant but they are more expensive than other places (sushi lunch from 5,500 JPY).

I will take you to 3 izakayas (Japanes Bars) that Japanese usually go in Shinjyuku. You can save time researching and planning your trip because I will show you places that are usually difficult for tourists to find. I can recommend you delicious foods & drinks and order it for you, so you can take the stress out of language barriers. Also during the bar hopping, I can show you nice places in Shinjyuku.
