Hello Tokyo Walking Tour: Meiji Jingu, Senso-ji and Harajuku
The next stop is to stroll through the neighborhood of Harajuku, the epicenter of Tokyo’s youth culture. Harajuku is one of Tokyo’s most eclectic shopping districts and home to a distinctive style of urban fashion. If you've ever wondered where those strange outfits featured in music clips and magazines come from, well wonder no more -- it's right here in the subculture world of Harajuku.
Continue on visiting Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist temple - Senso-ji. The five-story pagoda, Thunder Gate and distinctive temple architecture are the highlight of this temple. You’ll also have the opportunity to sample lots of Japanese snacks and foods and shop for souvenirs (own expense) on the way up to the temple.
Your tour concludes at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa.

Masakai San was an excellent guide. Punctual pick up and a witty, informative, interested and interesting guide. He put some fun surprises in the tour which we won’t detail. Highly recommend this tour!
We don't normally like tours but this one was absolutely amazing! Masaki Higashida was incredible, giving us great information about the areas we visited, but also being so personable and sharing great stories of his own life. Thank you for such a great tour!
We had taken a bus tour to these sights a few days prior, but this trip was the BEST! Our guide I think his name was Masaki, was excellent, and answered even my most random questions. We were only in a group of three, and really got personal attention. I won't spoil the little surprises that are included! We had so much information and it was very personalized. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Tokyo, and not be on a time table with buses, or huge groups. It also is only the morning so you have the rest of the day to explore the city on your own. I was only disappointed that we did it on our last day, as the company offers several more adventures we would have tried!
Great guide - loads of information about Japan and the culture.
