Tokyo Half Day Tour : Tokyo Nostalgic Townscape & National Museum

Tour Code: ALT0004/ 5 hours / Tokyo Half Day Tour


If you are a type to explore the road less traveled, or feel like you've "been there, done that" in Tokyo, this tour is for you. Our five-hour half day Tokyo tour takes you to the old time Tokyo that escaped the impacts of both Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and Tokyo air raid of World War II. Once you step into the small walkable neighborhoods of Yanaka, you will encounter nostalgic architecture and traditional and yet unassuming local merchants that are very different from what you see in major sightseeing spots. After enjoying the Yanaka neighborhood, we recommend you visit Tokyo National Museum, the largest art museum in Japan, to enjoy Japanese arts and ancient crafts to personally witness the long history and rich culture of Japan.
