Spend a day discovering the Japanese capital. Your guide will take you by bus, on foot and on the water, to see the landmarks of Tokyo.

The day will start with a visit to the Tokyo Tower, an icon of the city. We will climb to the top of this 333 metre high tower.

We will then take part in a tea ceremony in the Happoen gardens. The tea ceremony is a Japanese institution. This solemn ceremony, with its very specific rules, is a unique time of sharing, and is very symbolic of Japanese tradition.

Following this traditional experience you will enjoy lunch in a traditional restaurant, and taste yakiniku: a Japanese bbq.

After the meal, we will take the bus to the Imperial Palace, where we will stop for a self-guided visit.

We then take a boat for a cruise on the Sumida river to explore the Japanese capital by water between the Hinode Pier and Azumabashi Bridge.

On landing, your guide will take you on foot around the traditional district of Asakusa, you can explore the Buddhist Sensoji temple and the Nakamise shopping street on your own.

Take the bus for the last stage of the day's trip, and visit the upmarket Ginza district, before arriving at Tokyo station.

  • Excellent choix des lieux, magnifique cérémonie du thé dans un lieu magique. Le déjeuner barbecue était excellent. La découverte d’ Asakusa nous a ravi et nous y sommes retournés. Merci à la guide pour sa gentillesse. C’était parfait.
