Intrigued by Tokyo’s national sport? Head to the riverside Ryogoku district, the heartland of professional sumo.

Shibuya & Harajuku: Hidden Gems & Highlights Private Tour

3. Shibuya & Harajuku: Hidden Gems & Highlights Private Tour

Join a friendly local guide to get an authentic experience of Tokyo’s quirky underbelly on a personalized tour of bustling Shibuya and pop culture paradise Harajuku. Get a snapshot of the city’s weird and wonderful attractions as you’re led down its liveliest streets (and those only locals know about). You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. First, meet your guide in bohemian Shimokitazawa, an area that’s off the Tokyo tourist trail where local artists and musicians move between cool thrift shops and vintage record stores lining tightly packed streets too narrow for cars. Peer into the tiny shops on your way to Tomigaya, a quiet oasis filled with cafes and artisanal coffee shops not far from frenetic, flashy Shibuya, then stroll through Nabeshima Shoto Park – once a tea plantation in the late 1800s, today the park is a popular spot for locals to kick back on a bench and watch the world go by. Next, stop off at the strangely out-of-place Moyai Statue, a massive landmark modeled on the Moai of Easter Island, then make the mad dash across Shibuya Crossing, one of the busiest intersections in the world (and certainly the busiest in Japan). Jostle your way through hordes of locals on your way to the zelkova tree-lined avenue of upmarket Omotesando, and pass cool designer stores – and even some urban farm animals – on your way to bright and bustling Takeshita Street, a pedestrian shopping exploding with colorful boutiques, cafes, and eateries. Then, why not grab a bite (or several)? Catch your breath with a drink at the whimsical Kawaii Monster Cafe in Harajuku, a quintessential snapshot of the area’s obsession with all things adorable. Check out the Purikura (print club) shop, where 25 retro photo booth machines make a great alternative to a selfie stick, and end your day in one of Tokyo's largest city parks, Yoyogi, with a peaceful stroll to the century-old Meiji Shrine. Your personalized itinerary will be planned according to the number of hours booked and adapted to your preferences. Once you’ve booked, someone from the local tour operator's team will be in touch, so let them know if you have any special requirements.

A guided tour through Harajuku and Shibuya was a great way to cover these key areas efficiently and cover the highlights. After the tour we wandered again through some of the areas we had been shown eg Cat Street and the cool little roads around there.

My tour guide was Patrick. I can only recommend him to everyone, he knows Tokyo very well and was able to show me many places that I would never have found on my own. The food, drink and the trip through the alleys - everything was just awesome!

Valentina was lovely! She was personable, engaging, attentive and so much fun!
