About
Enjoy an efficient, half-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 half day in this dynamic Japanese capital. Let us know what you would like to experience, and we will customize a four-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.

Thank you for your quick and kind review and it's my great pleasure to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Tokyo. I have to apologize that I could not accommodate with your walking pace under a bit tight schedule and I will be sure that I will respond to your pace next time. Besides Disney Sea, there are so many nice places to visit in Japan. Kamakura city is one of them where I can guide as the first shogunate (samurai) government city with historic shrines and temples. Please feel free to come down to Japan in not far future. See you again in Japan. Best regards Yasuho Suzuki

Thank you for your quick review and I am very pleased to hear that you could enjoyed the tour in Tokyo. Due to the beginning of the new year, there were so many people at Meiji Jingu Shrine, Sensouji Temple and Asakusa Shrine. You would feel that Japanese people rely on religions and are so much religious than you expected. I suppose that you could see the things Japanese at new year days. I do hope that you will come back to Japan again and visit some other places. See you some other time! Best regards Yasuho Suzuki

Half day tour of Tokyo
Sep 2019 • Solo
As this was my first visit to Tokyo my husband and I did a full day tour by bus of Tokyo and I decided to do a half day walking tour to get in the few spots we missed on the full day tour. Unfortunately the guide was not very proficient in English and I had a hard time understanding what he tried to say, the few times he offered to speak that is. I spent a lot of time on the subway. Which was fine, but that would have been a perfect time to tell me about Tokyo or the next sight we were going to. Needless to say that didn’t happen! Next time I will very strongly request a fluent English speaking guide which would have made a huge difference if I could actually understand what I was supposed to experience!
