T-002 : Western Tokyo Private city tour

If you have more than 2 days for Tokyo, I recommend one day exploring the Eastside and one day for the Westside, as there is much of Tokyo you can’t miss.

My 2 tours, one-day Eastern highlights and one-day Western highlights, cover most highlights of Tokyo. While the Eastside is famous with more traditional and fascinating samurai history, the Westside is rich with modern, youth culture, Kawaii culture, and the best nightlife activities. If you are interested, please check out my Eastern Tokyo Private city tour too!
