Important Information & Details

What's Included

  • Guide Fee. A "Fully Escorted" native or fluent English speaking guide for the duration of the "Day Trip" to the destinations of the planned itinerary below.

Simply stated: ONLY the "Guide Fee" is included for our "Day Trips".

  • Does not include any transportation costs.
  • Does not include any entrance, activity, etc. fees.
  • Does not include any meals (or drinks).

Entrance fees, Activity Fees and Transportation fees are NOT included in the "Day Trip" price. You will pay these fees separately as the tour progresses and we have listed an approximation of what these fees may cost. We chose this method for "Day Trips" in order to keep "all options open" and give "fluidity" to the day tours. Please bring sufficient funds to cover these costs.

Group Size

An absolute maximum of 8 people are allowed on this "Day Trip".

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.

  • If your hotel is not within our included Pick Up / Drop Off zone, there will be a fee (time + transportation cost) added to the price.

Important Notes

  • Tour itineraries & schedules are subject to change due to train conditions, road conditions, extreme weather, and other unavoidable events. If an "unavoidable event" occurs and we are not able to reach a destination, options will be given in exchange.

Tokyo is a HUGE city but inside that city are some calm places you can relax! Meiji-Shrine (or Meiji-Jingu) and it's surrounding park area is one of those places. On this half day tour, we will visit Meiji-Shrine first where you can stroll through the beautiful park before reaching the magnificent shrine itself.  After the shrine we head over to (now World Famous) Harajuku, the "heartland" and J-Pop culture and "Harajuku Girls".  The streets in Harajuku are full of variously styled people and shops where you can also try some popular hot-trending sweets such as crepes, popcorn, cotton candy and smoothies.  Finally we will jump on the train for a stop and get off at Shibuya, another "World Famous" mega-city that is over-flowing with modern Japanese culture and the crazy Shibuya Crossing.

Meiji Shrine (Shrine): The most visited and probably most famous shrine in Japan. Meiji Shrine is a shrine dedicated to the spirits of Emperor Meiji (1852-1912) and his wife Empress Shoken (1849-1914).
