First, meet your guide at the 1300-year-old Sensō-ji temple, the oldest in the city, in the heart of the historic Asakusa district. Get a lesson in Tokyo’s ancient Buddhist history, and see the awe-inspiring Asakusa Shrine, which honors the three founders of the Sensō-ji. Then, walk the traditional streets to the neighboring Ueno district, an old downtown area that’s home to several attractions like museums, historical monuments and the popular Ueno zoo, all found inside the sprawling 150-year-old Ueno Park. Intrigued by Tokyo’s national sport? Head to the riverside Ryogoku district, the heartland of professional sumo.

Get a snapshot of the city’s weird and wonderful attractions as you’re led down its liveliest streets (and those only locals know about). You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. First, meet your guide in bohemian Shimokitazawa, an area that’s off the Tokyo tourist trail where local artists and musicians move between cool thrift shops and vintage record stores lining tightly packed streets too narrow for cars. Peer into the tiny shops on your way to Tomigaya, a quiet oasis filled with cafes and artisanal coffee shops not far from frenetic, flashy Shibuya, then stroll through Nabeshima Shoto Park – once a tea plantation in the late 1800s, today the park is a popular spot for locals to kick back on a bench and watch the world go by. Next, stop off at the strangely out-of-place Moyai Statue, a massive landmark modeled on the Moai of Easter Island, then make the mad dash across Shibuya Crossing, one of the busiest intersections in the world (and certainly the busiest in Japan). Jostle your way through hordes of locals on your way to the zelkova tree-lined avenue of upmarket Omotesando, and pass cool designer stores – and even some urban farm animals – on your way to bright and bustling Takeshita Street, a pedestrian shopping exploding with colorful boutiques, cafes, and eateries. Then, why not grab a bite (or several)? Catch your breath with a drink at the whimsical Kawaii Monster Cafe in Harajuku, a quintessential snapshot of the area’s obsession with all things adorable. Check out the Purikura (print club) shop, where 25 retro photo booth machines make a great alternative to a selfie stick, and end your day in one of Tokyo's largest city parks, Yoyogi, with a peaceful stroll to the century-old Meiji Shrine. Your personalized itinerary will be planned according to the number of hours booked and adapted to your preferences.

I loved this fun and unique tour. There are so many ramen restaurants in Tokyo that it is almost impossible to know which ones are the best. I loved that this tour took care of that for me. I also loved the ramen education that Frank provided and the opportunity to try five different types of ramen from classic to unusual. I am so happy to have found this tour and very highly recommend it.

Our photographer was Ivana and she did such a great job. She was able to take all the good shots in less than one hour and all the photos came out really fantastic. We will recommend this and also use it in our next travel destination without hesitation!

Pocket wifi was waiting for us when we arrived at hotel. Extremely easy to get set up, and has been an absolute blessing having unlimited internet access on the move. Highly recommended!!

Super amazing experience! Definitely recommend! Beautiful sights to see. I felt safe before driving.

It got sent to the hotel, is easy to use and the battery last long enought.
