The tour was informative and the guide was personable and spoke English well. It took about 2 hours and showed you two very different aspects of Tokyo within walking distance of each other - a beautiful shrine and an over-the-top shopping area (with cat cafes!)....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
