Highlight
(1) Hamarikyu gardens and Imperial Palace Plaza
These are spacious park-like places. You will see beautiful Japanese gardens and well-designed moats. They are oases of Tokyo.


(2) Asakusa
Asakusa is an ideal district to experience traditional cultures such as Sensoji temple and local souvenir shops along the Nakamise street. There are many authentic Japanese restaurants, too.


(3) Shibuya and Sumida river cruise
Shibuya crossing is the world busiest crossing. It is only here that you can see over 1000 people crossing the intersection at the same time. Sumida river cruising is pleasant to see modern and old Tokyo such as new condominiums and traditional houses.


(4) Japanese history and culture
At each spot, I will introduce Japanese history and culture. For example, at the Sensoji temple, I will show you how to pray formally. So, you will enjoy not only scenery but also background knowledge of Tokyo.
