Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower

Standing 333 meters high, this self-supporting steel tower is the tallest in the world. On a clear day you can see from the observatory Ginza and Tokyo Bay, and if weather conditions are favorable you can even see Mount Fuji. At night, the illuminated tower is a must-see.

Happo-en (experiencing Japanese tea ceremony)

The magnificent Happo-en garden was once part of a daimyo’s mansion during the Edo period (1603–1867). Experience cha-no-yu, the traditional Japanese tea ceremony in a quiet little teahouse located in the midst of an estate enchanted with 100-year-old trees and wild birds. Also enjoy a rare glimpse at one of Japan’s greatest collection of bonsai trees.
*When Happoen Garden is closed,the tour will visit Meiji Jingu Shrine instead.

Chinzan-so (lunch)

Chinzan-so (lunch)

Delight in the Japanese style of barbeque on a stone grill created from molten lava from none other than Mount Fuji. The vast Japanese garden before your eyes is so grand—it will make you wonder if you are really in the middle of Tokyo!

Imperial Palace Nijubashi Bridge

This used to be a castle that housed generations of Tokugawa shoguns, the administrators of the Tokugawa government in Edo, but with the Meiji Restoration it became the residence and palace of the Imperial Family. Surrounded by a moat and an abundant variety of trees, it is like a world apart situated right in the middle of Tokyo.

Sumida River Sightseeing Tour

A boat trip lasting around 40 minutes where you can delight in a mix of Tokyo’s continual redevelopment combined with the atmosphere of the good old days of Edo. Passing under 12 bridges, each with its own distinctive color and shape, enjoy at your leisure the ever-changing face of the Tokyo landscape.

Asakusa

Asakusa and Nakamise Street

Nakamise Street is a shopping arcade running from Kaminarimon Gate to the Buddhist temple Senso-ji lined with around 90 shops. Its history goes back to the latter half of the 17th century, and its rows of shops selling uniquely Japanese souvenirs such as fans and kimonos as well as traditional foods such as rice crackers offer a truly grand spectacle.

Ginza (drive through)

Tokyo Station Marunouchi southern entrance (17:10)

*During the cherry blossom season (tentative dates: March 31 - April 8), the Sumida River cruise will be replaced with cherry blossom viewing at Sumida Park.
