Konichiwa! I'm Inés, although everyone here calls me "Ines-san". As a lover of Japanese culture, I am fulfilling my dream by living in Tokyo since January 2023. My "ikigai" or purpose is to help other people get to know Japan through my eyes, and for them to have a pleasant time with me solving all their doubts. What do you have about this chaotic, but wonderful city 🤩

Tour description

If you are already reading about this tour, it would be because you are a shopping lover. In that case, Ginza won't let you down 🤩

This tour will help you to get a first impression of this area.

I would like to go further... while we walk through Ginza.. would you like to know the reality about Japanese habits and culture?

The main objective of my tour is to solve many of your questions about this city and its frenetic pace. And also we are going to visit:

  •  🍡 The oldest shopping center in Tokyo and one of the oldest in all Japan. There I will show you what is a "depachika", with the famous Japanese "bentos" and all the sweets that you should try during your trip in Japan.
  •  💫 In the same shopping center we visit the figure of the Buddha that would give you luck in your future.
  •  🏢 An amazin rooftop to have a 360º view of Tokyo. Either day or night it is iwell deserved. 
  •  ⛩️ One of the most curious temples in Tokyo, located in the same rooftop. Including his little "tori".
  •  🍻 The ideal alley to get to know the Izakaya's culture where all Ginza workers go after work.

Optional advice: If you want to have a "carry-on dinner" it is an ideal tour since hunger may stalk you during our visit to the "depachika". In the rooftop you can eat what we have bought while enjoying the views😁

Inés was extremely informative, helpful, and fun. I had walked through Ginza 3 times already but she added so much depth to my knowledge of the neighborhood.

Piacevole passeggiata alla scoperta di Ginza che si è rivelata essere molto di più che il solo quartiere dello shopping. Tanti aneddoti interessanti, punti panoramici e templi nascosti hanno reso questo tour davvero speciale. Ines è davvero un’ottima guida. Lo consiglio!
