Tokyo Walking Tours

4 29 Reviews | Add your review

Tokyo's most interesting details are best noticed on foot, slowed down, and off the main streets. From spotting eye-popping fashion in Harajuku to locals clad in traditional kimonos in Asakusa, Tokyo's neighborhoods can change personalities within a few blocks. With multitudes of Tokyo walking tours from which to choose, you're bound to see the sides of Tokyo you were expecting and a few that will surprise you, as well. 
 
Return to another era in Tokyo's history on a Kagurazaka walking tour. The narrow cobblestone streets, religious shrines and temples, and historical sites engage the imagination and provide a local look into traditional Japanese culture. The picture-perfect neighborhood became known as Tokyo's geisha district in the early 1900s. Today, some geisha houses remain, and occasionally the artists themselves can be seen walking the streets. 
 
Switch gears from ancient Japanese culture to modern day entertainment on the Shinjuku and Kabukicho evening walking tour. Known for its shopping and nightlife, Shinjuku bustles with crowds, and neon lights and provides stunning views of skyscrapers dotting the night sky. The walking tour shows off all of that… and the Golden Gai, a famous bar district with more than 100 former brothels, bars, and clubs. The narrow alleys haven't changed much over the years. End the tour with dinner and a few drinks at one of the area's bars. 
 
The hip Harajuku neighborhood brings new meaning to trend-setting, and you will see it all on the Harajuku fashion walking tour. Harajuku caters to fashionable teenagers, so visitors can expect to see thrift stores and bargain prices to boutiques and shopping malls with luxury designer brands. The tour ends at Kiddy Land, a famous toy store famous for its Hollywood celebrity clients.
