Tokyo's neon maze is a must-visit, offering a futuristic experience with skyscrapers and 14 diverse districts, which are like mini-cities in themselves. Embarking on a Tokyo private tour with a local guide gives you a real flavor of the district’s distinct personalities, and you may be surprised by what lies underneath the surface of this populous metropolis.
Not to be missed is Asakusa, which sits in the heart of old Tokyo, and it’s here where you can find the city’s oldest and most popular Buddhist temple, Senso-ji. Meanwhile, the Imperial Palace area is home to the Japanese royal family as well as the peaceful Emperor’s Gardens – a big contrast to the modern cityscape. For authentic Japanese cuisine, the best place to go is the city's fish market. Arrive early for a sushi breakfast and to peruse the market, or even earlier if you’d like to see the tuna auctions at dawn.
Shibuya is famous for the bustling Shibuya Crossing and The Myth of Tomorrow mural. Harajuku offers quirky fashion and trendy eateries, while Akihabara is a geeky pop culture paradise with arcades and maid cafes.
This city is an unforgettable, outrageous, and intense experience – so, are you ready to start your Tokyo custom tour?
