What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day of exploring Tokyo - from its traditional temples to its modern architecture. Comfortable coach transportation will enable you to visit many areas of this expansive city, whilst still being ensured that you have plenty of time to walk around and take in each site. Your knowledgeable and licensed tour guide is fluent in English and will be able to answer questions you have about Japan, Tokyo, and its people. The tour guide is also knowledgeable regarding Tokyo's unique architecture and will give you highlights of the history and inspiration behind the designs of many of Tokyo's famous buildings.
Your guide will pick you up from the hotel, and your day will begin at the Zojoji temple, which is one of the most popular buddhist temples amongst locales. This iconic temple features Japan's traditional style of architecture, and is particularly photogenic because of its juxtaposition with the modern Tokyo Tower behind it.
The tour will continue over to the Tokyo Bay, where you will visit the Fuji Sankei Building located on the man-made island "Odaiba" – a must-see area of Tokyo.
Next, you will stop by Omotesando and Aoyama, an upscale area popular among younger generations. The area has been likened to the Champs Elysées avenue in Paris, and it features a number of flagship stores and unique buildings, including the Prada Boutique Aoyama, a gorgeous building that demands attention with its unique, stacked-block appearance.
You will then head to the Ginza area (known for its high-end shopping and luxury), where you will break for lunch at a stylish restaurant. While traveling through Ginza the group will explore buildings such as Shiseido Ginza (Japan's top cosmetic brand) which is famous for its environmental consideration, earthquake-resistant features, and see-through metal exterior, as well as the must-see Maison Hermes building which was inspired by the Japanese lantern.
Finally, the tour will relocate to the Tokyo station area, situated in one of the most important business areas in Tokyo. Here you will explore the impressive International Forum in Marunouchi, which was modeled after a ship! After the tour concludes, you can be returned to your hotel (please make a request during your reservation), although it is recommended that you take your time and explore the Nakadori street after the tour. The area includes interesting destinations like the Mitsubishi Museum, and there are many delicious restaurants to be found in the Marunouchi Building. This area is where many Japanese businessmen and women enjoy their time after work.
