About
Enjoy an efficient, one-day tour of Tokyo accompanied by a nationally-licensed and experienced multilingual guide! Your guide will introduce both modern and traditional aspects of this dynamic Japanese capital. Due to the enormous size of Tokyo, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, a one-day tour would probably focus on one small area, which would still leave you in awe at the scale of the city. Tokyo is where you can experience both modern and traditional, and your expepienced private guide will help you efficiently enjoy a full day in this dynamic Japanese capital. Let us know what you would like to experience, and we will customize a six-hour tour that's best for you! Note*1: Please select your must-see spots from a list in the tour information to create your customized itinerary. Note*2: The Nationally-licensed Tour Guide-Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government requires a good knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and history.

Excellent Experience
Jun 2021
I booked a tour during the state of emergency and was concerned that places would not be open. Our guide Nobu assured us that there are plenty of things to see. He asked us what interested us and changed the tour based on history and traditions. Nobu helped us navigate the subway which is very intimating. We were able to use the subway the whole time after the tour. He was knowledgeable and insightful. His English is very good and he was pleasant to be around. I would completely recommend a tour with Nobu in the future.

My Jan 2020 visit to Tokyo
Jan 2020
We had the 6 hours Tokyo tour with Shin. I was traveling with my wife and 2 adults children. From the beginning he was very flexible in accommodating our requests, considering we had already spent one day in Tokyo and were planning to also stay another day by ourselves. Shin provided valuable insight not only in the classical tourist attraction of Tokyo, but also brought us to out of the path interesting locations, including a special ceremony in a temple and an interesting visit to a Kabuki Museum. We had lunch in a restaurant frequented by locals, where he was quite helpful in translating the menu for us. At the end, he even offered to accompany us beyond the 6 hours term but we declined to give him time to spend with his family. After the tour, while we were still in Tokyo, Shin continued to stay in touch with us via WhatsApp...a very nice detail from him

I really appreciate your nice review comment. Even our tour time was not so long, I feel so happy we could visit lots of interesting places and enjoy tasting lunch at a local restaurant. As generally said, Tokyo(Japan) has different attractive colors and faces season by season. Tokyo literally means "Eastern Kyoto", used to be called "Edo (Gateway of rivers) ". I am looking forward to seeing you next chances ! Thank you again and have a nice day. Shin

Efficient way to see Tokyo
Dec 2019
Our guide, Nobu, was informative and catered to our needs by taking us to a range of sites that interested all family members. We did not expect to pay for his transport or lunch but were happy to do so because he took us to all the agreed upon places even though it took longer than the pre-arranged number of hours.

Must do it if in Japan/Tokyo for the fist time
Dec 2019 • Family
This was our first time in Tokyo and our guide Nobu not only helped to understand how to navigate around Tokyo's metro, but also to by our train tickets to Kyoto and back to Narita's airport. He was extremely kind and patient with all the questions. I am sure we will be able to enjoy the rest of the trip much more after spending this first day with our guide.

Thank you very much for your review. I think not only guiding guests at sightseeing spots but also giving basic information about Japan & Japanese should be guides' important task. I do hope you can enjoy your stay in Japan. Nobu

One of the best guides I have ever had
Nov 2019
I have traveled the world and honestly Mr. Yasuho Suzuki is one of the best guides that I have ever had. He has spent time abroad, and his English is perfect. Also, his in-depth knowledge of Japanese history is amazing. My husband is irritating and likes to ask so many questions, but Mr. Suzuki always answered them. And Mr. Suzuki understood our sense of humor. What a great tour!

I am very pleased to hear that you two could enjoyed your stay in Tokyo. Also I could enjoyed my guidance with you as you asked some questions and we could have interactive conversations even one day. This kind of guidance would contribute to an international mutual understanding and friendship. Let's meet again at some other part of the world. Best regards Yasuho Suzuki

Our tour guide was Kenji Kasama.
We visited the various locations outlined in the tour and Kenji was also able to fit in a couple of other places that we were keen to experience eg the cat cafe. He is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and has a really pleasant, kind demeanour.
We had a great day out with him and we certainly got a feel for Tokyo which was the point of our outing. He took us to an amazing sushi/fresh fish place for lunch. Food and wine were stunning.
All in all, a fab experience.

Thank you very much for assigning me as a tour guide. I am very happy to hear that your family enjoyed the one-day tour in Tokyo. I hope you would enjoy your trips not only in Kyoto but also in Hiroshima with scenic views in country side and delicious local foods. In addition, please enjoy watching World Cup Rugby Games. Unfortunately, the team Japan has lost the quarter final game, instead I would like to see the team England to win. Thank you again for choosing us. I am looking forward to seeing you soon hopefully next year at the time of 2020 Olympic Games. Best regards, Kenji

Perfect for quick trip to Tokyo
Sep 2019
I hadnt been to Tokyo for 25 years and this time was travelling with teen age kids and wife with limited time I did not want to waste reacquanting myself and learning how much had changed. This tour was perfect choice. We briefed our guide on what we wanted to see, and he was indefatigable and cheerful in making sure we got it covered, even though it was 32 degree today in September and very humid. We finished exhausted but happy that the family had seen a little of Tokyo, old and new. Can't recommend highly enough.

I visited with my boyfriend and brother from D.C. in the US. Our tour guide, Noba, was amazing! He was very knowledgeable, and was the perfect start to our trip to Japan. He taught us how to navigate the Tokyo metro, took us to all the top Tokyo must-see destinations, and took wonderful photos the whole time. Highly recommended, great experience!

Excellent Specialized Tour of Tokyo
Apr 2019 • Friends
Our tour with Sense of Wonder was amazing! Hitoshi, our guide, was amazing at adapting or tour to everything we wanted to see and even adapted as the day went on due to the senior citizens in our party getting tired and the weather getting rainy. In addition, the tour started on time and included all our pre-requested places.
