Proceed to the Meiji Shrine, a fine example of Japanese shrine architecture, nestled in a peaceful, picturesque setting. Next, drive by the Akasaka Guest House and the National Diet Building en route to the East Garden of the Imperial Palace, which dates back to the 15th century and is the former site of Edo Castle and the present residence of the Emperor of Japan. Visitors are not permitted inside this very private residence of royalty, but you will enjoy a walk through the beautifully manicured gardens, with views of the ancient castle walls and ruins. The tour concludes in Ginza, Tokyo's most famous up-market shopping, dining and entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, night clubs, cafes and the famous Kabuki Theater. After wandering the streets of Ginza, make your own way back to the hotel, or continue exploring the marvels of modern Tokyo. Breakfast provided.

Loved every minute of this trip. The hotel was great - centrally located, modern, clean, a five star all-the-way. Singapore Airline was wonderful - didn't think I could take the 10hr trip but it wasn't difficult at all, with all the in-flight entertainment. Round trip transfers went smooth. And the included full buffet breakfast was an added surprise. I went with my adult daughter and son and they really loved Japan and can't wait to return. I am a former travel agent and I know how many things that are out of your control can happen. I am telling anyone who is interested in travel to contact your company. I've been on many tours and this was one of the best - both for what is included and for the price. P.S. When I called your office, I got to speak with a real human (how many times does that happen in today's world) who was pleasant and able to answer all my questions and correct any problems I had with my booking.
