This is one day luxury tour in Tokyo.
There are many many places you should visit in Tokyo and in this day trip you can see the best of the city. You can visit some of the city’s top shrines and luxury shopping areas before taking a cruise on Tokyo Bay.
We pick you up at your staying hotel in the morning and take you to the shrines first. Depending on the number of participants, it might be a group tour; it might be a private/family tour. If you prefer a private one, you may need to pay an additional cost.
First, we take you to the Meiji Shrine or Meiji Jingu. Meiji Jingu is a Shinto shrine. Shinto is called Japan's ancient original religion, and it is deeply rooted in the way of Japanese life and the shrine was dedicated to the Imperial Family in 1926. Walk along the gardens that surround the shrine as you listen to more details about its importance from guide staff.
Head back to your bus, driving past the Japanese House of Parliament as you continue on to the Imperial Palace East Garden. The current Imperial Palace is located on the former site of Edo Castle, a large park area surrounded by moats and massive stone walls in the center of Tokyo, a short walk from Tokyo Station. It is the residence of Japan's Imperial Family. This is the “home” to a traditional Japanese garden, tea pavilion, stone walls and a moat, is situated within the complex of an Edo period castle.
When you get hungry, we'll take you to the Nakamise Shopping Street. In fact, Nakamise is one of the oldest shopping centers in Japan and has a brightly-colored thoroughfare of food vendors and souvenir shops that leads to Asakusa Temple, one of Japan’s most important Buddhist sites. Asakusa can easily be explored on foot.
Leave Asakusa Temple, heading by bus for the Ginza district, a conglomerate of shopping stores. From there, enjoy lunch overlooking Hamarikyu Garden, a seaside garden from the Edo period. If you like to enjoy premium and high-class dining around Asakusa, there are several restaurants as follows:
1. Imahan Bekkan. Actually they have special course for foreigners such as 8,000 JPY and a 10,000 JPY course including Omi beef sukiyaki, tempura, shabu-shabu and dessert. Also they can serve vegetarian course as well.
2. Kinsen. This is a tempura restaurant serving from 7000 JPY courses.
When you are done with your lunch, you'll take a ride through the Tokyo Bay. From the boat’s vantage point, you’ll have excellent views of the Tokyo skyline, along with Rainbow Bridge. Finish your cruise and spend some time checking out the shopping at the waterfront Aqua City Odaiba complex. You’re likely to see Tokyo Big Sight and TC Building while you enjoy shopping. At the end of your tour at Tokyo station, go back to your hotel.
