What a great way to get a taste of what Tokyo has to offer! Michiko was a wonderful guide who was extremely friendly, accommodating, and helpful. My mom and I had a wonderful time during our first time in Japan. Tokyo can be overwhelming in its scope and scale, and having someone local to help us to explore the highlights was definitely a smart choice. I would especially recommend this tour if your time is limited in Tokyo and you want to make the most of it. People considering booking this tour should be aware that it is truly a full day experience, so make sure to dress accordingly. You will be on your feet for a good portion of the day, so proper shoes are a must! Thank you to our tour guide Michiko for a wonderful experience, we had a lovely time and would absolutely recommend this tour to others visiting Japan.

This whorl-wind tour was absolutely perfect for us. We had limited time in Tokyo and really needed guidance, especially on the transportation system. We learned so much while having great fun the whole time. Our guide Michiko was very experienced and attentive, pacing the tour according to our interests. Note to fellow tourists: if you are rookies like us, do this tour soon after arrival to prepare you for the rest of your visit. This is a snapshot tour of the best of Tokyo and you’ll get all your steps in. Wear sneakers!

Amazing experience! We are Tokyo First-time visitors from New York, so we knew very little about the city. Having the lovely Nakky-san show us around was the absolute perfect introduction to a city that can seem a little daunting as a first-time visitor. We didn't know that we would get pictures too! Nakky took lots of pictures of us, helped us with the trains, answered every question we had, and explained the history of every location we visited. If you're a seasoned Tokyo veteran this might not be for you, but if you're a newbie, look no further. But be warned, you will walk A LOT. Even for us New Yorkers it was a lot of walking. Completely worth it, but just a heads up. What a great day.

We booked this tour on our 1st day in Tokyo and 1st time in Japan . I’m so glad we did this as Yasuko was an amazing host and guide. We will definitely do another tour when we are back in Tokyo next year.

Yasuko was our guide on this tour and she was an excellent host - knowledgeable, kind and passionate about the city. It is a long day of stops but organised in a way to make it manageable (even with jet lag after travelling into Japan the night before) and an excellent way to see the main sights and get your bearings. I did this tour on my first day and from there I planned where I wanted to return to and then also felt comfortable navigating the public transport and the city in general. I would recommend this tour to everyone, wear your walking shoes!

C’était vraiment une expérience exceptionnelle. La guide, Michoko était vraiment d’une aide importante pour expliquer les différents lieux visités. Elle était divertissante attentionné et allait au-delà de nos attentes. Une visite à faire absolument dès l’arrivée à Tokyo car vous voyez vraiment tous les sites majeurs et pouvez ensuite y retourner!

Yasuko was a great host! Great service and a great time. Highly recommended this experience to anyone visiting Tokyo. It is such a great way to see all the key places in one day.

I fortunately got the opportunity to have a whole private tour to myself! My tour guide was Michiko she was amazing! She was really sweet and very knowledgeable about every location she brought me to. I learned a lot in just one day. She also helped teach me how to confidently use the subway system in Tokyo. Overall very happy with the tour I saw lots of places worth revisiting. A lot of the spots weren’t very touristy either which is good because I got to see a lot of local life in Japan like markets, streets and uncommonly known sights.

A must do experience! Perfect for the first day in Tokyo, you see so many sights and different areas that you cant help but want to come back and explore again! highly recommended!

I had a great time with Kaori and she took us to many sites, some I would have known to visit since they were tourists areas and some I would have never known to go. One place we went back to visit the next day and had a great time there. It was a long tour but Kaori was very accommodating to our special needs and dietary requests and was patient with us, especially my teenager daughter. We got to see much more as tourist since Japan is still closed to most tourist and none of the sites were really crowded. I would definitely use them again for another tour.

This was a great tour. My guide Michiko was very friendly and knowledgeable. She took me to great spots and helped me understand the subway as well.

Our host was gracious and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. He catered to our interests and ended up taking us out on a night on the town! Thanks again guys! When I come back I’ll be sure to send you a message!

Our tour guide, was amazing! We travelled by train throughout the day and got to see some of the beautiful architecture and history Japan has to offer. Definitely worth the money, especially if you do the experience within the first few days of your trip.

This was a perfect start to our Japan trip. As newcomers our guide “K” taught us all that we needed to know about what to do, see and how to navigate Tokyo. We absolutely loved the care and compassion that was shown and highly recommend this tour.

I strongly recommend this experience after jet lag. It is a very long tour, but an amazing one. You will know places only locals know about; you'll enjoy the passion of the real Japanese culture; you'll end up knowing the metro pretty well. Overall: MUST DO!

I love the experience and the fact that is not easy to move around in Tokio and it helped a lot. Although it was Kaori’s first time carrying it on, she was well prepare, did the research in advance and was very polite and friendly all the time. Totally recommend it!

Wonderful! Our guide made the day very memorable. We saw many sites in a short period of time, learned a lot about the city and had fun too. It was the perfect introduction to Tokyo! Per our request, they even customized the end of the day for us. Also, as a nice touch, they provided a drop box with photos from our day. This day was truly a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend this experience!

I had my tour with Moeko-san and she was AMAZING! So sweet, kind, and friendly. She was very considerate of the group and kept us engaged the whole time. I definitely would recommend her and this tour. Thank you Moeko!

At very stop our guide explained what was special about it. Although at the end of our tour I was exhausted, I was overall very pleased with the entire experience. I don't think I would have gone to or found many of the places on my own. I had a wonderful day.

Moeko was a fabulous guide for a fabulous city. We highly recommend this tour. It’s long with lots of walking but totally worth it. Do this on your first day in Tokyo or if you only have limited time. It’s a great way to see it all in a day. You take the metro everywhere. I’m sure there are larger tours that take busses but this is a small and intimate group walking tour. Highly recommended.

Michiko is such a lovely guide. She shares her knowledge with passion and experience. She made us feel like we were long time friends visiting. I highly recommend anyone coming to Tokyo for the first time to take this “all you have to see” in one day experience.

Great experience! Covered all the highlights of Tokyo and really learned a lot about the Japanese culture. Guide spoke perfect English and went beyond to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable. After this tour you will feel like a local. I really enjoyed our guide showing us some beautiful cherry blossoms and plum trees. I recommend to all.

Definitely recommend for first timer in Tokyo. Our host Hiromi was pamper us really good & we’ve visit lots of places, & customize our tour per our preference.

Loved this experience! Michiko was the perfect guide! We decided to do this on our first full day in Tokyo to see many of the must see sights, learn the metro system, and then have the rest of our time in Tokyo to explore what else we wanted to see. Michiko stuck to the itinerary while also taking us on a couple of detours based off things we had mentioned. She really listened to our interest and found a couple of specific shops for us. At the end of the tour, she made sure we safely made it back to our station. She also made sure to get lots of pictures of us along the way. Even though my feet are sore, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Im visiting from Miami and its my first time in Tokyo and I’m very grateful for this experience and I strongly recommend.Even if you have been to Tokyo before you will get to to know the city better. Shun was also allot of and introduced us to great Japanese delicious treats.

This is an excellent way to explore Tokyo's main sights in just one Day. The tour covered many interesting spots, it was very efficient, professional and enjoyable. The group size was good and the host very friendly and professional.

Really enjoyable, got to see all the major sites and perfectly paced! I enjoyed it even though I had been to many of the sites before.

Keiskei really did go through everything on the list and answered most of our questions. Lunch was really good and he made sure that we rested when we needed to - we got a snack and second lunch when we needed a bit of a boost. Got through almost 25000 steps so be prepared to cover a lot of ground, but definitely worth it as we know where we want to go back and check out in more detail.

This experience is a wonderful way to see the amazing city of Tokyo. We visited a number of major sites, from Tsukuji Fish Market to Meiji Shrine. Our guide for the day, Michiko was a an amazing and experienced tour guide who knows Tokyo like the back of her hand. She was the best, very kind, accommodating to our questions, and we are grateful that we had such an insightful guide taking us around the city on our first full day in Japan. Wear your most comfortable shoes! Highly recommend!

This tour is a must when visiting Tokyo for the first time. We were able to get an understanding of the city and it’s culture and see some sights we may have otherwise missed

Thanks to michiko for a fantastic trip - it made a huge difference to getting around Tokyo- enjoyed the whole day especially learning numbers, the food and culture xx

Had a great day walking around in Tokyo looking at historical and important places.
The host did a great job and I can for sure recommend others to do this tour!

Recomiendo encarecimante un tour de bienvenida de este tipo cuando vienes a Tokyo. Te llevan a lugares donde a la gente turista nos cuesta encontrar y te empapas de la cultura. Muchas gracias por una experiencia inolvidable!

We had Keiskei as our tour guide and he was great. He really made a special effort to show us around Tokyo and went the extra mile to make sure we had a great day. Thank you!

This was a great experience that I highly recommend if you want to learn more about Tokyo and it’s history. We did this on our first day and it made us feel more comfortable traveling around for the remainder of our trip

The schedule was full so I messaged Jun and he gave us the opportunity to work with another tour guide, Michiko. She was wonderful, sweet, and very knowledgeable and gave us an incredible tour. We couldn’t have done it without her and are very glad we messaged Jun. Thank you Michiko and Jun for giving us a great experience in Tokyo!!!

Wow!! This experience was exactly what we had hoped for and MORE when we booked. Our host (Michiko) was so friendly, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in helping us discover Tokyo. She is a world class host. We had this experience on our very first day in Tokyo and it gave us the perfect snapshot of areas to explore in greater detail. Oh and we had the best sushi lunch ever. Seriously. Ever. Thank you Jun and Michiko!!! Arigato!!!

Michiko is a great tour guide who showed us not only sightseeing places, but also her reflections as a Japanese who spent years in Vegas and returned to Tokyo.

Firstly, I want to mention that our tour guide was Michiko-san. If you are assigned to this wonderful woman you are lucky.
Michiko-san brought us to all locations that were mentioned in the tour. Be prepared to walk a lot. My smart watch showed we walk approximately 25km and it did worth it.
Michiko-san told us about Tokyo, history of each place. We discussed politics and culture. She has been living in USA before, so language is not a thing to worry about.

Secondly, I was a single travel and getting along with group members was easier with help of Michiko-san.
We finished our tour earlier. Michiko-san offered us to have dinner either with her or on our own. Two of us left due to being tired but me and and person stayed. We ended up spending time together in a sushi place. We talk a lot about her past and each of us told our story, it was really interesting.
We took great pictures during tour and I also took pictures with her.
Arigatōgozaimashita Muchiko-san

Great tour just be prepared to walk a lot. You see many places in one day. Navigating the train it’s confusing therefore having someone guiding you it’s great. Overall I loved this tour.

Michiko was the ultimate host! Kind, caring, and genuinely concerned about my experience. I do not think I could have experienced Tokyo in such an efficient manner without the help of Machiko. I would 100% recommend this experience to anyone who is looking to see all that Tokyo has to offer. I recommend doing this experience at the beginning of the trip as it opened so many doors for further exploration!

Princess Joy
It's my 1st experience and didn't regret getting this tour, especially I'm travelling alone! Thank you so much Shun! Made my day

Michiko was a fabulous tour guide! My favorite part of the tour were the special restaurants she took us to. I’d never be able to see them otherwise! I had the best sushi ever in a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant. This was a big highlight of our trip!

My husband and I had a great time on the tour. We took the tour on our first full day in Tokyo. Jun was booked the day I wanted, but he sent Shun in his place and Shun was great. He showed us many things about Japan culture. Shun took many pictures for us at the different places we stopped off at. He took us to a delicious sushi restaurant for lunch and a fantastic izakaya for dinner, both places we wouldn’t have found on our own, shun translated the menu for us at both places. I highly recommend this tour.

great job

Awesome experience, set us up for the next couple of days exploring Tokyo ourselves!

Awesome experience and our guide keisukei was exceptional and informative

The tour was great, great group, great sights, great day

If you only have a short time in Tokyo this is a great way to see the city!!!

Mitchko was great!

Had a great time! Tokyo is very overwhelming at the beginning. Having this experience made it much easier.

Great experience!!! Excellent recommendations!!

The breadth of this experience was so great, it will be a challenge to summarize! First, where I’m coming from: I signed up as a solo traveler, first time to Tokyo. I’m intrigued by Japanese culture and hadn’t done mush research on a “must-see” list before arriving. I only had a few days, so the opportunity to see “top-10+” combined with the walking and using the transit (trains) system, along with the positive reviews helped me to decide to sign up. My expectations were exceeded, not just because of the ground we covered, but all the detail and attention that Jun put into the experience and his care for the group along the way. I won’t spend time listing the places we saw, you can read that in Jun’s description. It was a city-wide tour that was a well -choreographed variation as far as quiet, peaceful places, bustling streets and neighborhoods, as well as thoughtful explanations of local history, daily life and customs. (Bonus: along the way I picked up helpful info about how to use the trains, which came in handy for the rest of my trip) Jun’s passion for expressing his knowledge of his home to visitors was apparent and appreciated (his English is great, which was helpful for me). All along the way, our host was attentive to our small, international group of tourists. If someone was interested in staying a bit longer at a site or had additional questions, he was happy to oblige. Along the way he took group photos which he provided to us after the tour. Those who were able to joined him for “Japanese tapas” after the end of the official tour (which he invited us to do at the very beginning of the day). An example of his thoughtfulness was when I asked him where the bathroom was after lunch: he could have easily let me know it was the door on the left and I would have been fine with that. Instead he accompanied me to the two doors and described the lettering on the door meaning ‘women’ so that I would know which to use in my future pit stops (not every door has a gender silhouette or English). Top it off with incredible weather, and a really cool group of people. A great adventure, an incredible value for the cash. Be prepared for lots of walking (you can rest while riding the trains!), and come with your curiosity and questions. Best value tour I’ve experienced, made possible by Jun’s dedication to his guests and his obvious love of his city. Do this tour!!

★★★★★ Nicholas
On my first full day in Tokyo, I signed up for this experience with Jun-San. Make no mistake about it, this is a very active tour (walked 10+ miles over about 12 hours). I was blown away by the amount which we were able to see and by the cultural education which Jun-San shared. I was particularly enlightened to learn about the proper traditions for entry and prayer at Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. There were several opportunities to “customize” the tour with a bit of shopping or exploring at the points of interest. I enjoyed perusing in Akihabara and walking through Ginza (the stationary store, SONY, and Nissan showrooms!). When we took breaks for meals, they were very enjoyable and wonderful cultural experiences. I enjoyed the sushi which Jun recommended, as well as the brown sugar bubble tea and Takoyaki throughout the tour. I strongly recommend this experience to anyone passing through Tokyo and encourage you to take advantage of Jim’s expertise to have a fun and authentic experience!

★★★★★ Vincent
This experience was a perfect one for the beginning our of holiday in Japan. We typically like to start off with a local guide when traveling to a new city as you can learn some local tips and things like taking the metro to build confidence for the rest of your trip. Jun far exceeded my expectations. He was super knowledgeable and provided us with great insight to Japanese culture. We were able to see so many things that we would have merely walked by without acknowledging. You will get your steps in for sure but the downtime for lunch and dinner helped balance the day. Highly recommend this experience!

★★★★★ Michael
I cannot speak highly enough of the tour of Tokyo that Jun provided yesterday. My family and I have done other tours with local guides in other major cities in Europe and the USA and Jun is by far the best guide we have had. He showed us the real Tokyo and was extremely knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture. We had such an enjoyable day and will be recommending this tour to all of our family and friends who are planning on coming to Tokyo. The information Jun provided prior to the tour was very detailed so that we knew exactly what we would be doing, where to meet, the cost for meals etc. Thanks Jun it was amazing!!!

★★★★★ Hector
One warning: prepare to walk a lot. Now that aside, this could not have been a better experience. Jun greets everyone with warmth and caring upon meeting. When you’re a stranger visiting a foreign land, this kind of interaction is incredibly valuable. As he walks you through the city, he explains things from his perspective as a native explaining the culture, history, value of more places in one day... then I would have seen in a week. I am incredibly grateful to Jun for doing this. It was amazing. Thank you and if someone is thinking about doing this, I recommend it with no hesitation. Just be prepared to walk. Otherwise, it was like being led by a good friend who knows the city very well and your request was “hey, can you show me everything in one day? Is that possible?”

★★★★★ Benjamin
Jun and his experience was really amazing! We saw all the important attractions of Tokyo with a lot of background informations. That is the perfect experience for a good overview of the town. Besides we had a great lunch in a sushi restaurant and a very good dinner in a hidden Izakaya without any tourists. Jun explained and show us the typically food, witch was really delicious. Great recommendation for all who want see Tokyo in one day with good food, nice people and a lot of fun. And after the tour we stayed in touch with Jun for any questions about the city.

★★★★★ Jorge
Fantastic overall experience. It exceeded our expectations regarding the number of places we saw and the knowledge and insightfulness that Jun demonstrated. He loves Tokyo and it shows. Every step of the day was carefully planned. Meal recommendations were outstanding as well. Great way to see so much of Tokyo in one day. Highly recommended.

★★★★★ Sybil
I highly recommend taking this extra long tour with Jun. There is no way I could have covered this much ground with this much insight in 9 hours only. Do this on your first day, to get a feel of each neighborhood so that you can go back to the ones that are most interesting to you in the following days. Jun is friendly, and very passionate about his city. You can tell he put a lot of thought process in the itinerary. The dinner was the highlight of the day. Jun is a wonderful host, and you will really connect with him.

★★★★★ Ginny
Hands down this tour is the best way to see all the major sites in Tokyo. We did this on our first full day in the city, and we were blown away by how much ground we covered. Jun is extremely warm and such a terrific guide. He expertly navigated our group on the subway, through crowded streets, and to places we were unlikely to see or fully appreciate without a guide. He brought our group to a stellar sushi restaurant where he explained the Japanese culture and traditions around ordering, eating, and completing a meal. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, you will see more of the city than you ever thought possible in a day.

★★★★★ Rochele
I would recommend this as a first day in Tokyo for anyone who is hearty and isn’t afraid of a long day with lots of walking. It was wonderful. We saw so much and shared two special meals with our host. It seems like a rare gift to have such personalized hospitality, kindness and expertise Japanese history and culture.

★★★★★ Hillary
If you do only one experience in Tokyo, this is the one to do! Jun took us to historic sites, hip modern neighborhoods, and everything in between. It's a long tour, but if I had tried to visit all of those locations on my own it would've easily taken multiple days. This is a great experience to do on your first full day in Tokyo, because Jun very kindly shows how the subway system works (something I was intimidated by) and shows you maps of where you are at any given time during the tour. He provided interesting historical facts about the locations we visited, which added so much color to all of the amazing things we saw. Be warned - you will be walking a LOT, so wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. But it's well worth it!

★★★★★ Niels
My wife and I joined this tour on the first full day we had in Japan/Tokyo, which was a perfect start on the vacation. We covered a lot of great sights/neighbourhoods in Tokyo, and Jun was really good at telling about the different things we went to see. But just as important, he shared a lot of insights into Japanese culture and customs - e.g. when we went for both lunch and dinner, we learned about good Japanese behaviour, while also understanding more about the various food items etc. All in all this is a really great full day to explore Tokyo, and learn a lot about Japanese culture at the same time, which I'm sure we will benefit from during the rest of our vacation. We can highly recommend this tour, and Jun is a great host/guide and an excellent ambassador for his country.

★★★★★ Carrie
Fantastic tour! Great way to get an overview of this vibrant city if you only have a short time in Tokyo. Just be ready for a really long day. We were exhausted by the end but satisfied. Jun really packs it in but also made it a memorable experience.

★★★★★ Veronica
This was a great tour of this amazing city! My sister and I only had an idea of what we wanted to do. Jun's tour gave us the chance to decide on places that we would like to spend more time at. Dinner was great! He took us to where he usually goes so it was a nice personal touch.

★★★★★ Oscar
Muy buen anfitrión, conoce muy bien las historias de cada lugar, la comida, muy enriquecedor el tour. Lo recomiendo ampliamente.
