Ginza is one of most famous shopping streets in Tokyo and so modern, but when you enter into traditional back alleys there, you can find exciting spots, for example, small Inari shrines enshrining foxes, casual restaurants beneath train line rails, a very curious spot on a back alley penetrating a tea shop, and interesting old houses and buildings which were built about a hundred years ago.
At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a sumo-wrestler’s pot dish at an Izakaya (traditional Japanese pub) in which a creek runs.

I used to be a director and producer for TV shows and had introduced Japanese customers to many interesting sightseeing spots. In turn, I would like to put my experiences into good use to share with overseas guests as I got a national license for English speaking tour guides in Japan.
I’ll suggest most exciting spots to your favorites and interests, for example, a good unknown spot for cherry blossoms in spring or turned red leaves in autumn, an authentic tea ceremony at a historical tea house if you are interested in it and a best selected spot for a cat or owl café if you like it.
Please let me know your favorites and interests. I would prepare you a most amazing plan.
