The fast pace of Tokyo may make this seven-day trip feel like a whirlwind adventure, but Globotours will help you pack a lifetime of memories into every minute.

The Destination
Teeming with people, skyscrapers, and tradition, Tokyo presents travelers with the ultimate urban jungle. Glittering, contemporary architecture dominates the horizon—the city was forced to rebuild after an earthquake in the 1920s and again after the bombings of World War II. But the sight of Mount Fuji in the distance and the delicate fragrance of cherry blossoms and bonsai gardens provide a sense of stability amidst the frenzy and modernity.

With the help of one of the most efficient public transportation systems around, you'll quickly learn to navigate the neighborhoods of Japan's capital, the largest metropolitan area in the world. Feast on fresh sushi or dine at the food stalls in the markets, where gyoza and ramen are made using generations-old recipes. Shop for name-brand clothing and accessories in the Ginza district, then check out the latest technology in Akihabara—also known as Electric Town. For true entertainment, take in a traditional kabuki theatre show, or marvel at the sheer size of the sumo wrestlers at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan arena. Tokyo's neon nightlife is virtually unmatched—this city's inhabitants work hard and play hard.

  • Everything went according to the itinerary and [the guide] was very reassuring, since none of us speak Japanese. Great experience! We have tried other agencies, but we were not comfortable with them.Thank you Globotours!
