Overview

Get pumped for the Olympics with this insider’s walking tour of Harajuku and Omotesando, covering landmarks like Yoyogi Stadium. Tours are fully customizable, offering a mix of top attractions and under-the-radar sites, overlooked by most tourists. Browse the boutiques along Tokyo’s own “Rodeo Drive,” stop for a coffee along atmospheric backstreets, and listen to an enriching primer on the city’s vibrant architectural history from your own private guide.

What to Expect
Checking out one of Tokyo's most impressive landmarks, the Yoyogi Olympic Stadium, from a distance, you will also see the modern and unique fashion boutique architecture of boutiques such as The Iceberg, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Tod's, Sunny Hills and Prada.

Harajuku is one of the cute Japanese shopping streets famous for teenage girls, and Omotesando is similar to the Japanese equivalent of Rodeo Drive with high-end boutiques lined up. By walking this area, you will understand the attractiveness of this area and see how unique it can be.

Once you step into the back streets, a wide variety of Japanese lifestyles can be observed. You will understand how diverse it is and just how many characters live just in this small area. 

You will begin your tour in front of the Meiji shrine. You will also see some of Japan's emerging architectural works between the big names.

You will take a side trip to see the backstreet neighborhood to appreciate the different aspects of the area and stop by at a cafe to have a short break while walking and enjoy some conversation.
