A private tour where you can enjoy the highlights of Tokyo with peace of mind. An interpreter-guide, who is also a qualified home caregiver, will guide you around famous sightseeing areas in Tokyo such as Asakusa, Shibuya, and Harajuku.
The tour starts at your hotel and then heads to Asakusa. In Asakusa, guests enjoy views of Tokyo Skytree from the observation deck of the Asakusa Cultural Tourism Center, and then visit Asakusa’s Sensoji, an icon of Tokyo. At Sensoji, you can enjoy the huge ceiling paintings – a highlight of the main hall – because the main hall has an elevator for wheelchair users.
After Sensoji Temple, guests go to Sumida Park and enjoy the view of Tokyo Skytree and the Sumida River, with beautiful sights beyond. Sumida Park is also known as a cherry-blossom viewing spot where you can enjoy the cherry blossoms in full bloom depending on the season.
After Sumida Park, guests have lunch in Asakusa then go to Shibuya by subway. In Shibuya, experience the Shibuya scramble intersection, which is the busiest pedestrian intersection in the world. Up to 3,000 people cross on one green light at many times, and 500,000 to 1 million people cross here in a single day.
After crossing the intersection, you’ll head to Meiji Dori, go down Cat Street, and head towards Harajuku. Running in parallel with Meiji Dori, and connecting Shibuya and Harajuku, Cat Street is a promenade built on the old Shibuya River, which was once flowed underneath. This is a perfect spot to experience Japanese youth culture.
After leaving Cat Street, guests pass through Omotesando, heading on to Meiji Jingu. Meiji Jingu is where the Emperor Meiji had built the cornerstones of the modernization of Japan from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. It is a sacred spot with an atmosphere that is distinctly quiet from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city. At the end of 2016, the approach to the main hall was paved for wheelchair accessibility, making it a perfect spot for guests on this tour. After visiting Meiji Jingu, guests may return to their hotel.
