Great way to spend long layover in Tokyo!
Claire_M, July 2023
I loved my tour! I had an overnight/all day layover in Narita and this was the perfect way to make the most of my short visit. My wonderful guide Izumi met me at the hotel in Narita and helped me navigate the public transit system and get into Tokyo, all while teaching me about Japanese culture and history. We were able to visit several really interesting areas during the tour and I feel like I got a taste of what Tokyo has to offer. It left me wanting to return for a longer visit in the future!
Whirlwind tour of Tokyo
