What to expect

This tour of the traditional side of Tokyo will take you to the old neighborhood of Tokyo, or 'shitamachi'. You'll begin with a visit to the Nezu Shrine, one of the most beautiful shrines in Tokyo due to its slope of red torii gates. You'll continue the tour exploring paved alleys of old houses, temples and precious small traditional gardens.

Later on, you'll dive into the life of the locals with visits to small shops for second-hand kimonos, traditional crafts, and local products. Lastly, you'll move onto Yanaka Cemetery’s peace and tranquillity; this is the largest cemetery in Tokyo and is surrounded by lush greenery whose cherry trees bloom during the spring.

  • Cafe Nekoemon- cafe set with Maneki Neko painting
