What you'll do

We will meet at JR Tokyo Station and then go to popular places such as 1) Shinjuku, 2) Shibuya, 3) National Diet Building Area, 4) Ginza, and 5) Tokyo Station Area by using 9 different subway (all Tokyo Metro) lines. The final destination of the tour is at JR Tokyo Station where we meet at first. During the tour I will let you know several important tips of how to use complicated Tokyo subway system. So after the tour you will be able to explore more in Tokyo through using subways by yourself. The tips include how to charge the PASMO card, how to get necessary information from various signs on each station, how to change to another line, how to find the best exit, etc. I'm sure you will become more familiar with Tokyo subways than most locals. We will also have very quick walking tours of Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ginza, and Tokyo Station Area, which would help you to prepare for the visit to these areas after the tour. Additionally, I can share a variety of things with you during the tour such as Japanese cultures, history, unwritten rules, food, working style, attractive tourist destinations, etc. according to your interest. In summary, this tour is generally useful in the beginning of your visit in Tokyo and Japan. But I believe you can also enjoy the tour just before leaving Tokyo because it could be a good opportunity for you to review Tokyo and find more about Japan.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Each subway station is located in different depths. So we have to go up and down by escalators or stairs. Additionally, each station is sometimes far away from each other even if they have a same name. So we need to walk a lot as well during the tour.
