What you'll do

The tour is available two times a day. You can choose a convenient time. We let tourists borrow Japanese Aloha shirts at no cost and we go on the tour. The Samurai will guide in Shibuya with a unique aura. We encourage that customers wear the Japanese Aloha shirts at no cost in order to feel more of the Japanese culture. We expose the latest fashion, music, and the youth culture in one of the most modern cities in the world. Our tour guide takes photos of you and other customers during the tour. First, we go to the world famous intersection called Shibuya crossing. This intersection is one of the largest intersection in Japan and about 3000 people cross the intersection at a time. We go to the street called Shibuya center street. You can find a variety of stores there. Next, we go to see the wall art. The wall art looks very stylish and interesting. In addition, you see a lot of nice places that are hard to find yourself. Since drinking alcohol on the street is legal in Japan, you are allowed to have alcohol while you are on the tour. It is very fun. At the end of the tour, you will return your Japanese shirt and we will review the photos taken of your tour with you.

Akito

Since my previous job was a tour guide in Tokyo, I know Tokyo very well and how to entertain foreign customers. I have asked them where they have been in Tokyo but I realized that they missed a lot of great places to see in Tokyo. I wonder, "what if I could guide them and take them to the great places in Tokyo in a unique way?" My idea is that I wear Kacchu, the armor of Samurai, during the tour to entertain the customers. I mainly guide in Shibuya, but I am able to take customers to other places, such as Shinjuku, Odaiba, Asakusa, Tsukiji, etc.
