I'm very much eager to be of any help for you to get something different and special from the tour. Tokyo is a multifaceted city, consisting of the extreme opposite elements such as old and new, tranquil and bustling, organized and chaotic and so on. By introducing these elements and places of your interests, I'd like to show you what makes Tokyo so unique and intriguing.
