Tokyo Kagurazaka: Samurai City Exploration Game and Tour

1. Tokyo Kagurazaka: Samurai City Exploration Game and Tour

Discover a piece of Old Edo’s (now Tokyo's) complicated history and stories from the times of shoguns, geishas, and samurais. Explore the charming Japanese capital by playing a quest with your friends, significant other, or family. Follow each clue from one place to another, with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. Solve the problem and guess the answer to unlock the secret story of each place. After you buy the quest, you'll get your access code by e-mail which will be used in the app. The tour will take you about 1.5 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit which will allow you to go at your own pace. You won't need a guide, just download the app, go to the starting point, and begin the adventure. If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket. Play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or split into smaller groups or teams and compete against each other. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group and meet the group at the end of the tour.
