The 'Free walking tour' is all around the world, it is a great way to start a trip to a new place, sadly many of these tours take visitors around all the usual places and tell all the usual stories - Tokyo Localized stands out from other walking tours because we are not just a tour guide, we are storytellers - we tell the story of Tokyo.
'Once you get into the tour, you will enjoy as if you are watching the movie, or listening to the orchestra. The story about Tokyo. We make the place alive.'
Tokyo has evolved into a modern, vibrant city where its recent history is evident all around, here both traditional and modern stand side by side. Natural disasters like fire and earthquake have led to the rebuilding of this city many times and when World War II destroyed the entire city, Tokyo had to start again. The miracle economic growth after the World War II transformed Tokyo Into one of the best cities in the world; Tokyo is still developing today as the economic and political center of Japan.
Our walking tours will pull out highlights from the 1,000 year history of Tokyo and Japan, presenting it to you as a story that will allow you to appreciate how this great city came to be.
