This is the third route we made in 2011 after the Great East Japan Earthquake. We would like to cover west part of central Tokyo.The main attraction is the biggest Shinto shrine in Tokyo, Meiji Shrine.

  • Form the area developed in Edo period to the area still changing especially for 2020 Olympic
  • Highend shopping districts such as Ginza, Roppoingi and Omotesando
  • Lots of unique beautiful architectures
  • Picnic at Yoyogi park (if the weather permits)
  • Meiji Jingu Shrine, the biggest Shinto Shrine in Tokyo

…and more!
