It's a free tour but you tip your guide. I would have loved to do this if they actually showed up. Unreliable at best. Use another tour company or you will be taking yourself on a self-guided tour.

Fantastic tour from our friendly guide, Keigo. He speaks incredible English, and tailored the tour to what we were interested in. We learnt a lot whilst having loads of fun, and a fair bit of sake!

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
