This experience will bring you first to Ginza, Tokyo’s most famous high-end shopping and entertainment district.
Ginza boasts some of Tokyo’s most glittering fashion stores, restaurants and museums. It was destroyed and rebuilt many times with the result of being today a paradise for architecture enthusiasts.
Nonetheless, hidden between the busy shopping streets and the tall buildings lay a series of narrow and dark back alleys leading to small and almost forgotten shrines.
To complete the visit, Odaiba, the most recently developed part of Tokyo. The oldest artificial islands that constitute the neighborhood date back to the end of the Edo period, but the area became the present office and entertainment district in recent timing.
Meet at the JR Yurakucho Station and walk through the neighborhood looking for some of the most interesting buildings of the city.
Stroll in Chuo Dori, the main street of Ginza and after a walk in the back lanes reach the busy Shinbashi station and move to Odaiba via the incredible Yurikamome line.
Here take a walk on the beach and enjoy the cityscape before meeting the original life-size unicorn Gundam statue and returning to Shinbashi.
