Board your flight to Tokyo.
Upon your arrival in Tokyo, board an airport limousine bus to your hotel.
Following a pick-up at your hotel, hop on a bus pass by a winding trail amid lush forest grounds on your way to Meiji Shrine, dedicated to the first emperor of modern Japan, Emperor Meiji. Continue past the National Diet Building, home to both houses of the Japanese parliament, on your way to Imperial Palace East Garden, the site of the original Edo Castle. Walk along the orchard-lined pathways and marvel at the vibrant flowers blooming in the Japanese and Western-style gardens. Immerse yourself in the city’s past by wandering the impressive Sensoji Temple complex. Stroll through Nakamise-dori Street, a colorful shopping avenue that leads to the temple. Our tour ends in the Ginza shopping district, known for upscale shopping with designer brands’ boutique stores and flagship shops. You can carry on shopping on your own or relax in one of Ginza’s luxury restaurants or trendy coffee shops.
Today is free to explore Tokyo at your leisure. Perhaps, spend the day discovering the popular shopping and entertainment area in Shibuya or snap a few photos at the prominent intersection in front of the station’s Hachiko Exit. It gets flooded by pedestrians each time the crossing light turns green, making it a popular photo spot with neon advertisements and giant video screens in the background.
