Get ready for our activities and walks in Tokyo!

We prepare our activities and walks with care to make them fun and interesting for you as well as authentic and beneficial to the locals. Still, we may have to adapt them due to the weather, religious/special events, busyness at shops… Your understanding will be greatly appreciated.

Our walks in Tokyo last 2~2½ hours. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes adapted to the weather and suitable for walks. Japan has no special dress code for its streets, Buddhist temples or Shinto shrines but avoid big bags for narrow/crowded places. Do not forget your camera and wallet 🙂

Our activities in Tokyo last 1~1½ hours. We may remove our shoes and sit on tatami mats so please wear socks matching the season and clothes letting you sit comfortably without a chair. Also avoid strong perfume just before the activity. Thanks!
