This is a really good way to introduce yourself to Tokyo and an absolute must for fashion lovers. The tour also includes using public transport and my guide miako entered any questions I had. She also gave everyone in the group advice on what to do next once the tour ended. Really worth the time and the money.

I was traveling as a Solo traveler, and although I have been to Harajuku before I thought why not book a tour. I met the tour guid...e at the lobby of the hotel, and was surprised to be the only one on the tour - a private tour just for me.
We caught the train to the station ( this ticket is included in the price ) and the tour guide showed me Harajuku areas - she even lined up for me to buy Crepes almost a 30 minute wait!) while I browsed the shops.
What was fantastic was I was able to tell her what I was looking for, and we went specifically to the places I wanted. I even found new places.
She spoke fluent english and japanese and was able to easily translate any questions I had for the staff, and it was a good day!
We walked heaps. Make sure you wear comfy shoes :)
