We know you are probably feeling wanderlust and missing travel! We sure are. To help you have a fun StayCation here in Japan we have put together some very special tours of our own city of TOKYO.



We have designed these tours for Tokyo residents. Unlike our usual tours for inbound travelers, this resident tours are a bit different. We know you know the basics already so our Local Insider Tours give you back stage access along with our local experts to see things you won’t spot on your own! We will be able to dig deeper, share hidden culture and local stories that will surprise you and re-kindle your love for this amazing city. Joining these tours is also an amazing way to support local businesses who are also struggling with all the challenges that 2020 and the pandemic have created!



All our local tours are offered at a special price of 9500 yen (a significant discount from our regular walking tours)

Tour Highlights:

  • 2.5 hour tour to learn about the local neighborhood from a local expert level.
  • Stops at local restaurants and food sellers for an INSIDER’S backstage view
  • Drinks and food included in the tour
  • You can choose a morning tour of Tsukiji Market area (there is so much to see and do here)
  • OR choose an evening tour sharing real hidden gems in Shinjuku.

We have a strict policy about starting our tours on time. This is to protect the enjoyment of all our guests and restaurant partners. We are sorry to say that if you are not able to arrive at the meeting point by the departure time, the tour will start regardless and no refund will be provided. We are also unable to accommodate meeting up in any of the food stops once you’ve missed the start of the tour.

Tour Schedule:
