Consider reserving a 1-day private tour if you spend holidays in Japan with your family or friends, do a business trip in Asia with colleagues who do not speak Japanese, attend an international conference in Tokyo with researchers or students… Also consider reserving a 1-day private tour if you have only one day in Tokyo and are not sure how to get the best from it.
During a 1-day private tour in Tokyo, you could for example eat great sushi at Tsukiji fish market, discover the recently renovated Kabuki-za theatre, savour a green tea in a nice tea house surrounded by trees and flowers, walk in small streets, meet shopkeepers, and end the day with a great night view or even live music! If the weather is not so good, you could instead admire Japanese samurai swords, traditional kimono dresses, Buddhist statues, Shinto lanterns at night, and the interior of a gorgeous wedding centre…
During a 1-day private tour near Tokyo, you can for example leave early for Hakone to see Mount Fuji, enjoy Japanese art, drink green tea while looking at a lake then relax at a hot spring.
