Transportation

  • Our guides use public transportation (train, subway, bus, etc.) for all our "Day Trips". If you prefer to use taxi or a private car, please contact us first and we can make this happen. Any extra costs associated with transportation other than public transportation will be an extra fee.

  • Walking: Because we use public transportation there IS a lot of walking. You will be walking to and from stations and then walking around destinations. Furthermore, at some times public transportation can be crowded and you may have to stand while riding public transportation.

  • As stated above in "What's NOT Included", transportation costs are NOT included in the tour price. If you want to utilize a different form of transportation other than public transportation (Rental Car, Taxi, etc.), you will pay for those costs.

Pick Up / Drop Off

  • Pick Up / Drop Off will either be at your hotel (lobby) or at a major station exit, whichever you prefer.

  • The "Day Trip" price includes Pick Up / Drop Off on and within the main Yamanoto Line train loop (see image below). If your accommodation is at one of the Yamanote Line stations or within the loop, Pick Up / Drop Off is included in the price.

With this tour we will visit Asakusa, the most popular tourist "temple sight" in Tokyo and the near-bye Kappabashi.  In Asakusa we will walk through the town and visit Senso-ji temple and the Nakamise-dori shopping street.  We are sure you will get lots of good photographs and maybe buy some of the interesting trinkets at the many shops that line the streets.

After we have visited the temple we will head over to Kappabashi which is an area that is becoming increasingly popular with overseas tourists because this is the place where they sell those plastic displays for restaurants.  They also sell unique kitchen utensils such as chopsticks, knives and Bento boxes,and feel the neat works by the craftsman in the area.  Buy some plastic sushi and take it home to show your friends... the stuff looks real and tasty!
