Plus you’ll be getting a taste of cultural Japan with visits to the Sensoji Temple and the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. You’ll get the chance to look down on Tokyo from the Skytree. And all your travel is taken care of as navigate Tokyo like a local, by train, the very best way to get around Tokyo.

    When you’re all Akihabara’ed out, it’s time for dinner and drinks at a local Sashimi Restaurant where the host is also the head chef! He knows how to make it a party and will have you laughing and having a great time.

    DAY 5

    After breakfast with the group enjoy a free morning to explore more of whatever you like in Tokyo or join us on an optional activity (additional cost) to a traditional Onsen. It’s an optional activity because it’s for the more daring in the group! An Onsen is a natural hot spring bathing facility. It’s a favourite Japanese past time where the boys are separated from the girls and everyone goes for a swim in the hot baths in their birthday suits. A truly unique and relaxing experience if you can get past the nudity.

    At 2pm, meet your host and the rest of the group at the hotel and head off on an afternoon of discovery starting with the Sensoji Temple, Tokyo’s oldest temple, your guide will take you on a tour explaining some of the interesting customs and traditions within this iconic destination.

    Then it’s off to the Tokyo Skytree – a great place to get a birds eye view of Tokyo. See Tokyo from a different perspective and take it all in. High up in the clouds, on a good day you can even see Mount Fuji. Express passes and access to both viewing platforms is included with the highest viewing platform sitting at 451m above ground.

    Following this it’s on to dinner at another local restaurant with the group for a delicious meal.
