東京 Classic & Modern Tokyo
5 Nights/6 Days

For most of our visitors, just hearing the word “Tokyo” conjures up a treasure trove of imagery, as it rightly should, since Tokyo is full of charms both old and new. Urban adventure, discovery, and just plain fun are sure to come your way as you traverse this notoriously vibrant city with us by your side. With your preferences in mind, we will customize your time here to best enjoy Tokyo’s best sightseeing, restaurants, and shops. Your lodging will also of course be of the highest standard. Simply put, we promise a perfectly tailored, luxurious holiday in Tokyo that you will never forget.

Day1: Arrival in Tokyo!

Upon arriving at either one of Tokyo’s international airports, Narita or Haneda, you will be met your personal tour guide, whisked into a well appointed car, and expediently delivered to your luxury hotel in the heart of Tokyo. After all, the last thing you want to deal with after a long flight is hassle with getting to your hotel! (Travel Time: 85min from Narita, 40min from Haneda)

We provision only hotels that are not only superlative in their nature, but which are also conveniently located nearby the Imperial Palace Garden, or in central Tokyo (including the Ginza) areas.

After check-in, allowing for good weather, you are invited to enjoy a peaceful stroll around the Imperial Palace Garden and the nearby, more modern areas of Tokyo and the Ginza at your leisure.

Upon your request, it would be our pleasure to make dinner arrangements at a nearby fine restaurant.

Day 2: Harajuku, Aoyama and Shibuya areas

Tokyo Day Tour: Your tour guide will be at the ready in your hotel’s lobby at the agreed upon time. Together, you will explore both historical and modern parts of Tokyo by private car, including but not limited to:

A stroll through the spiritual forest of Meiji Shrine, followed by a jaunt into the warren of side streets in Harajuku.

Visiting Ota Memorial Museum of Art, which has a collection of over 1,000 pieces of Ukiyoe (Japanese color prints) collected from the Edo era. Your guide will share experience-enriching information about this pivotal period in Japan’s history.

A stop at nearby Nezu Museum, which houses a collection of over 7,400 objects of calligraphy, painting, sculpture, metalwork and weaponry, ceramics, lacquer, bamboo crafts, and more.

A stroll down famous Omotesando street, which is lined with luxury stores, and also a bit of time in the back streets of Harajuku, which is the home of many non-mainstream, cutting edge stores that sport a distinctively Tokyo vibe.

A dive into the madness known as Shibuya, where you can cross the busiest pedestrian intersection in the world – the famous Scramble Crossing. Your time in Shibuya can be extended should you wish to do a deep dive into Tokyo’s arguable capital of youth culture.

In the morning, you will visit interesting shops in Shinjuku, including Kinokuniya, a giant book shop with a large art and culture section and special editions galore.

Afterwards, you’ll explore Tokyu Hands, as well as a “depa-chika” (prepared food market area in the basement of a department store), and Bingoya, which offers unpretentious traditional crafts made in Japan, including pottery, fabrics, lacquerware, glassware, dolls and folk art, and more.

In the afternoon, you will visit Shinjuku Gyoen Park, a sprawling but superlative Japanese garden in the heart of the city.

Day 4: Old-town Asakusa area

Tokyo Day Tour: Today, you will explore one of the oldest parts of Tokyo, Asakusa, where the spirit of old Edo proudly lives on. You will stroll Nakamise-dori, which is a charming shopping street running from Kaminari-mon gate to Senso-ji temple, which is the capital’s oldest temple and the spiritual home of its ancestors.

While in the area you would be remiss should you not also visit Asakusa Jinja (shrine), and also Kappabashi-dori street which is the country’s wholesale restaurant-supply and kitchenware district – a great place to pick up souvenir food model like you see in the window of Japanese restaurants!

A short trip from Asakusa brings us to Ame-Yokocho, in the Ueno district. This lively marketplace and shopping district will present sights and sounds like you’ve never seen!

Day 5: Tsukiji Fish market and Akihabara Pop culture

Tokyo Day Tour: Today you’ll visit the world famous Tsukiji Central Fish Market. If you are interested in watching the maguro (tuna) auction, let’s get there by 5 am to try and be one of 120 visitors they allow in each a day!

After the auction, you can stroll around and have a look at the various stalls in the market, then have a sushi breakfast before coming back out at 9am to the outer market.

After the fish market, you will head to Ginza, where you will visit the Kabuki theater to experience a traditional drama.

A full kabuki program is composed of several acts and can last many hours, so after watching just one, you’ll duck out and head to Akihabara, also known as Electric Town or Otaku Town.

This is the great dame of electronics centers in Tokyo, and has more recently also become known as the headquarters of anime otaku and maid café culture.
