One day tour in Tokyo to visit major tourist spots by learning Japanese culture

This tour is designed for the first time visitors to Japan. It is very informative and all of my customers satisfied my guiding very much. It is not only sightseeing but more informative tour about Japanese history and culture. The first place I will take is Edo-Tokyo museum where you can get rough idea of Japanese history and after this place you can easily understand and enjoy meaning of other places. Senso-ji at Asakusa is the No1 tourists spot but I will take special places where most of guides do not visit. Meiji shrine is a sacred place and atmosphere is totally different from other places. After visiting this Shrine, I can take you to Omote-sando which is famous for high level shopping or the famous Shibuya crossing to see the place.
