  • Tokyo: Private Hidden Gems & Highlights Walking Tour

    1. Tokyo: Private Hidden Gems & Highlights Walking Tour

    Join a friendly local guide to get an authentic experience of Japan’s electrifying capital city. Get a personalized tour of the city’s fascinating history, culture, and fantastic food scene as you’re led down its liveliest streets – and a few off the well-trodden tourist trail. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. First, meet your guide at the 1300-year-old Sensō-ji temple, the oldest in the city, in the heart of the historic Asakusa district. Get a lesson in Tokyo’s ancient Buddhist history, and see the awe-inspiring Asakusa Shrine, which honors the three founders of the Sensō-ji.

  • Tokyo Metro Pass: 24, 48 and 72-Hour Options

    3. Tokyo Metro Pass: 24, 48 and 72-Hour Options

    Although public transportation in Tokyo is very convenient, it can also be quite pricey as individual trips typically cost from 100-500 yen. It may not seem like much when you tap your Suica card each time you pass through the ticket gate, but if you do the math at the end of the day, you'll find that it can add up to be quite a lot! There is a much cheaper alternative available: This 24, 48 or 72-hour Metro pass offers unlimited use during consecutive days within your chosen timeframe. Your pass provides unlimited access to all the Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway lines within the Tokyo Metropolitan area, taking you anywhere in the city you may want to go.

    Give yourself at least a day or so to get used to the Japanese metro system, especially if you don't know the language. Navigating your way around the stations, especially the major hubs, can be daunting, to say the least. But once you have grasped the basics of what to look for (like the color of the line, the code number, the before and after station names, etc., to know which way you're headed), then you become more confident and it all becomes a breeze.

    We had to book a transfer because we were arriving at 2am and there were no trains or buses available. It is much more expensive, but there were no other options. However, everything went very smoothly. Our driver was there waiting for us with our names on a sign, he spoke English, he was friendly, the car was modern and clean, and he drove us to the door of our accommodation (which was excellent at that time of morning!)
