We provide free guided walking tours in Asakusa, Ueno Park, Yanaka, and the Imperial Palace East Gardens areas in English. Come join us on a tour of Tokyo spots!

Heat stroke is a risk during summer in Japan. We put the safety of visitors first, so free guided tours scheduled in July and August will be canceled if the heat stress index (measured by wet-bulb globe temperature, or WBGT) announced on the Heat Illness Prevention Information website of the Ministry of the Environment (http://www.wbgt.env.go.jp/en/) reaches the level of Danger (more than 31°C) at the time the tours are scheduled.
Even if the heat stress index is not in the range of Danger, the free guided tours may be canceled or held on a shorter route in order to reduce the risk of heat stroke.
Along with free guided walking tours, we offer a variety of information at our service centers as well as guided tours of the museums listed below. Please drop by to meet our volunteer members and get the latest travel tips.
