Full description
On this four-hour private tour you will see Tokyo’s major landmarks, including the Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine and Asakusa. Following pick-up from your hotel at approximately 9:00 AM for the morning session or 13:00 PM for the afternoon tour, head to the Imperial Palace (Double Bridge). The Imperial Palace is located on the former site of Edo Castle. The area is a large park surrounded by a moat and massive stone walls. Wander the idyllic grounds of the palace’s serene East Garden, where you’ll have time to check out its tea pavilion and moat. Then head to Meiji shrine consecrated in honor of the Emperor Meiji, and considered the most-renowned Shinto site in all of Japan. Hear about the practices behind this ancient Japanese religion as you explore the shrine’s treasure house, sanctuary and other structures, each of which is composed of cypress and constructed with copper-lined roofs. Continue to the Asakusa area to visit the Senso-ji temple, the largest temple in Tokyo and home to a golden image of Kannon, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. Next, walk along Nakamise shopping street before ending the tour.

Sachimi was an excellent guide: she explained everything from the subway system, to the history of what we saw, in a cheerful, clear and comprehensive way. She was knowledgeable about a variety of things, including customs at a Shinto shrine/Buddhist temple, the meaning behind historic statues, current cultural items/trends, and even how to hail a cab.
