Full description
Discover Ginza through the eyes of a local on a fully customizable tour of one of Tokyo's most interesting areas. Stroll the Ginza district and uncover the heart of the city's most popular place for entertainment, shops and flashing lights. 

Start with a walk through the Chūō district, closed to vehicles at the weekend and sometimes home to small street concerts. Go to Tsukiji Market and marvel at the organized chaos of the legendary fish market; or get involved if you are feeling brave! 

If you are traveling with kids, or just young at heart, and fancy exploring one of Japan's most famous toy stores, go to the Hakuhinkan Toy Park and discover giant stuffed toys and tons of other goodies to indulge your playful side. Pop into some of the countless designer stores or follow your host to one of the less-expensive shops to save some cash.

Discover traditional stores, such as Kyukyodo, where the beautiful Japanese paper, cards and fans are a feast for the eyes. If you prefer, your host can leave you outside the famous Kabukiza, where you can watch one off the acts or performances at leisure. Alternatively, they can take you to one of their favorite restaurants or izakayas (a casual dining venue) so you can sample some authentic Japanese food and drinks on your own.

The possibilities are endless in Ginza and your local host will design the best experience for you and your group, all based on your interests and desired length of your adventure.
