Uncover the beauty of Tokyo and discover the vibrancy of this amazing city first hand in our 'Tokyo Uncovered' tour. With a knowledgeable local guide to show you the way around and introduce you to the local way of life, you wont miss a thing in a city that never sleeps. Encounter the awe inspiring range of environments in the city while observing the unique and forward thinking fashions of the Tokyoites. We spend a full day perusing the majestic Meiji Shrine, Omotesando shopping district and upmarket entertainment area of Ginza to give a flavor of Tokyo's diversity. Then it's off to the ImperialPalace before ending up in the old town of Asakusa, home to Sensoji, Tokyo's oldest Buddhist temple.
Your guide will take you to the energetic and lively Tsukiji Fish market. Enjoy the sights and sounds before buying ingredients for your very own cooking class. Visit a local home where you will be instructed on how to prepare "maki sushi" (rolled sushi), "gunkan maki" (sushi rice wrapped with a strip of seaweed and topped with soft ingredients), and "nigiri sushi" (sushi rice topped with a slice of raw fish).
With plenty of free time left you can stroll around Tokyo at your own pace, exploring the friendly streets and eye catching landmarks. If you need a break from Tokyo's hectic pace you can simply take some time out and head to the delightful seaside town of Kamakura.
One of Japan's former capitals, Kamakura is a home to many ancient temples and the Daibutsu, a giant bronze Buddha. Located just 1 hour by train from Tokyo, Tokyoites flock to the beaches here in the summertime.
