Tokyo Tomo

Sample Tours

Some of our most popular itineraries center around:

  • Hunting for up-and-coming artistic talent at the contemporary art galleries scattered throughout the city, or rare examples of landscape and rock gardens by artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto and Isamu Noguchi.
  • Delving into the details of Japan's legendary food culture, whether it's small plates and sake at an intimate izakaya, traditional Japanese tea and confectionery, pickles, or even wine. Whether you're a newbie seeking an introduction, or a seasoned gourmet who's eaten your way through the city multiple times, we promise to show you a thing or two.
  • Roaming Tokyo's winding streets in search of Taisho-era "romantic" architecture, mid-century modernist classics by Fumihiko Maki and Kenzo Tange, or ingenious contemporary buildings by Kengo Kuma, Tadao Ando, SANAA, and Sou Fujimoto.
  • Exploring small shops by emerging designers, craft and ceramic stores, "select shops" (multi-brand boutiques) and subcultural/underground nooks and crannies with a uniquely Japanese sensibility.

Whether you're a first-timer to Tokyo who's interested in planning a strategic overview of the main districts like Ginza, Shibuya, Roppongi, and Aoyama, or a repeat visitor who wants to be surprised and challenged by some of its more obscure offerings, we can help you craft that perfect field trip itinerary.

Depending on your specific interests, Tokyo Tomo may also be able to help facilitate meetings with some of Tokyo's most talented artists, designers, architects, chefs, and more.
