Because of the scale of Tokyo, we recommend choosing a district that you would like to visit and exploring it. Wandering around Tokyo is absolutely the best way to experience the city: stopping in at market stalls, street vendors and Izakaya for snacks and drinks, and taking in the sights. For a Western friendly free walking tour we recommend FreeTour.Com’s different tours of the city, and have compiled a couple of choices to help you decide.
Free walking tour of Asakusa
If you want to learn about old Japan in the relative peace of Asakusa, a district just outside the centre of Tokyo, then we would definitely recommend the free walking tour of Asakusa. If you like gorgeous temples, stunning and sometimes bizzare food, and learning about the crafts and traditions that made modern day Tokyo what it is today, then Asakusa is definitely the place for you. The trip includes visits to the Sensoji-Temple, Sky Tree Tower, Nakamise Shopping Arcade, and many more! Click here to find out more
Free walking tour of Shinjuku
If you’re more into nightlife, neon lights and frenetic energy, then we would definitely recommend taking the free tour of Shinjuku. Shinjuku is the world famous nightlife centre of Tokyo, with an unbelievable array of late night restaurants, bars, fetish shops, clubs and much, much more. The free walking tour of Shinjuku starts at night, and stops off at Shinjuku East Exit Area, Kabuki-Cho, Golden Gai and lots more besides! Click here to find out more
