One day tour in Tokyo to visit major tourist spots by learning Japanese culture

One day tour in Tokyo to visit major tourist spots by learning Japanese culture

This tour is designed for the first time visitors to Japan. It is very informative and all of my customers satisfied my guiding very much. It is not only sightseeing but more informative tour about Japanese history and culture. The first place I will take is Edo-Tokyo museum where you can get rough idea of Japanese history and after this place you can easily understand and enjoy meaning of other places. Senso-ji at Asakusa is the No1 tourists spot but I will take special places where most of guides do not visit. Meiji shrine is a sacred place and atmosphere is totally different from other places. After visiting this Shrine, I can take you to Omote-sando which is famous for high level shopping or the famous Shibuya crossing to see the place.

Watch Sumo Training with a guide

Watch Sumo Training with a guide

The guide will meet at your accommodation and then take you to one of the sumo stables to watch the morning training session. A sumo stable is where the wrestlers train and live together. On the way, your private guide will introduce the history of the sport, and the daily life of a sumo wrestler. During the training, refrain from talking as even a slight whisper will bother the wrestlers. However you will have an opportunity to ask questions to your guide after the training is over. The experience requires guests to take off shoes at the entrance and sit directly on the floor when the training is in session. Chairs are not available. Taking photos are allowed, but a video recording is strictly prohibited. Any violations will result in being asked to leave immediately.

Join fellow adventurous baseball fans September 12-19 as we attend games at all five Tokyo-area ballparks of Nippon Professional Baseball, Japan's major leagues.

You'll feel like a local as we take the train to the ballpark and cheer along with the home team's frenzied fans. And you will have the option to attend a professional sumo wrestling tournament too! Taking in a game in Japan, where baseball is the national sport, is an unforgettable experience. You recognize the field - the green grass, the dimensions, the outfield wall - but that's about it! The rabid fans and unique style of play make attending a baseball game a not-to-be-missed experience for any visitor to Japan. NOTE: Dates are not flexible. We are only offering one tour that starts September and ends September 19.
