Experience Tokyo’s hidden underbelly with this 100% underground tour. From the start, every stop on this tour is on the B1 floor or lower, making for a totally unique exploration of the luxury district of Ginza. This tour will open up a whole new world amidst the vibrant subterranean culture as you become part of the thousands of people who use the station for work and play as part of their everyday life.
Discover public art displays hidden in plain sight and learn about the history and importance of this vital hub. You’ll learn how the original Ginza subway line’s station area grew into its present configuration and the years-long modernization project leading up to the Tokyo 2020 summer games.
Along the way, you’ll experience the “locals-only” flavors of everyday Japanese life. Enjoy Japan’s most ubiquitous grab-and-go snack, and learn how to eat it!
Visit a traditional Japanese kissa-ten (coffee shop) that dates back over fifty years, where you’ll enjoy a venerable snack found on the menus of seemingly every kissa across the whole of Japan.
You’ll also learn about and try Japanese versions of Western food known as yōshoku, and finish with a delicious dessert with a surprising, yet familiar presentation.
Enjoy this chance to “live like a local” from the first steps on an experience you won’t soon forget.
