Description

Spend a day exploring regal shrines, historic palaces and stunning temples on this full-day tour. Your adventure through Tokyo’s beautiful sites and landmarks also includes a chance to do some souvenir shopping at Nakamise Shopping Street and enjoy a scenic cruise along Tokyo Bay.

After your hotel pick-up, follow your guide as you travel to Meiji Shrine, erected in 1926 and dedicated to the Emperor and Empress of Japan. Admire the lush green gardens, and hear from your guide why this is Tokyo’s most important and famous Shinto shrine – a structure with significance to the ancient Japanese religion.

Hop back on your coach and travel to the Imperial Palace. Gaze at the remaining structures of the 15th-century Edo Castle, which includes moats, stone walls and several guardhouses.

Arrive at Sensō-ji Temple, Tokyo’s oldest and most significant Buddhist temple. Stroll around the majestic pagodas in the main hall before you take a walk along the colourful Nakamise Shopping Street to browse for souvenirs. At a local restaurant, take a break to enjoy a Western-style lunch overlooking a gorgeous seaside garden.

After lunch, cruise around Tokyo Bay, view the city’s skyline and iconic landmarks and moor at Odaiba, a waterfront shopping district. Peruse the myriad of stores before heading to Tokyo Station and the conclusion of your tour.

Trip was ok and the guide was good. The Budha temple and Odaiba is really not worth it. Instead of Odaiba we could have done stop at a better shopping district for normal shopping.
