Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Go beyond typical tourist sights and enjoy a tea ceremony, a Tokyo Tower visit, and a Sumida River cruise.
Get a taste for all the amazing sights Tokyo has to offer, plus learn about Japanese cultural traditions at tea ceremony, during this full-day tour of the top attractions in the Japanese capital. If you’re short on time and looking for an easy way to sample this fascinating Japanese capital city, this is the tour for you.

Start your Tokyo experience in the morning and continue by coach on a day-long tour of the city, making stops at each site.

Proceed first to Tokyo Tower, a towering landmark of the city skyline that provides incredible views of the greater metropolitan area. Ascend to the Tower’s 476-foot (145m) observation deck, sitting atop the second-tallest structure in Tokyo as you get a bird’s eye view of the city. Make sure to check out the transparent-floored ‘lookout window,’ affording heart-pounding views down to the ground below.

Continue your tour by taking part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Visit a serene garden, filled with bonsai trees and carefully-preserved architecture from the Edo-era, as you watch this intricate ritual that is as much art form as it is a beverage preparation.

Take a break from your tour to refuel with an included lunch before heading next to central Tokyo to view the Japanese Capitol, which houses the country’s Parliament, and to the front of the Imperial Palace, where you make a short photo stop. Your tour continues across the double-arched Niju-bashi Bridge, which at one time led to Tokyo’s Edo Castle (also known as Chiyoda Castle). Listen as your guide explains the history of this site, which the Japanese Emperor claimed as his residence in 1863.

Move next to Hinode Pier, where you enjoy a short cruise on the Sumida River as you head towards Tokyo’s Asakusa neighborhood. Your ride on this historically significant body of water takes you underneath 12 bridges as you enjoy the unique architectural landmarks along the riverbank.

Disembark from your boat and spend some time strolling the streets of Nakamise, a thoroughfare that’s packed with vendors selling handicrafts and food. Head on from Nakamise to Asakusa Kannon Temple (also known as Senso-ji), where you have the chance to explore Tokyo’s oldest and most important Buddhist temple. This sacred site’s history spans nearly 1,300 years.

Finish your excursion with a ride through Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood, a high-end area of department stores and luxury boutiques. Stop with your group at Tokyo station, where your tour ends and you receive a souvenir map that allows you to continue your discovery of the city on your own.

We didn't realize the tour was on a bus however it turned out to be great. The guide was very informative. She gave us a lot of extra details regarding the history of Tokyo. Loved the gardens and enjoyed the lunch. Would recommend for anyone visiting the city.

This was a great day for us to per-view Tokyo through the eyes of a professional touring company. The day was well organized and our Tour guide really new her facts. Our favorite part was the Tea Ceremony. Which was odd because we thought the Tokyo Tower tour would be our favorite. The precision and practice needed to successfully conduct the Tea Ceremony demands respect. We definitely recommend participating in a tour like this, especially if you have never traveled to Tokyo.

If you want to see a lot in a day this is a very good tour ,well planned with the only blip was the meeting point .On the confirmation it stated the Annexe of the bus station infact you need to take the escalator down to pick up your ticket .Our guide Kik Koo was outstanding so informative and offered enlightening aspects of Japan life together with lots of facts throughout the tour .The only downside was the river cruise very boring and the tourist shops were full of tat !

VERY happy with our guide. The Tokyo tower was fun. Thoroughly enjoyed the tea ceremony and the explanation of what was going on. I wish we had been split up at the top of the garden so we could have enjoyed the garden more before our tea ceremony. Lunch was fun and delicious. The imperial palace stop wasn't worth it, a drive by would have been enough. I wish our group would have had a reserved section on the cruise so we could have had more explanations of what we were seeing. The last stop at Asakusa was fun and informative, wish we had more time there.
