Tokyo Private Tours: Authentic Experiences with Local Experts 


Private tours unlike any you've experienced before. Our local experts share the stories that only locals know as they dive into history, architecture, food, religion and more. When you leave a Tokyo private tour with Context, you'll feel deeply connected to the city and its culture.

Experience the Context difference with our multifaceted approach to discovering cities: through walking tours, audio guides, and online lectures. All of our Tokyo experiences cater to travelers with a thirst for knowledge.

Our private tours provide an intimate exploration of the city’s streets, unveiling stories and sites often missed. Complementing this, our audio guides offer a rich narrative journey, perfect for independent exploration at your own pace. For a deeper dive, our engaging pre-trip talks bring to life the history, culture, and hidden secrets of each destination, all from the comfort of your home. Together, these elements create a comprehensive and enriching travel experience, unique to Context.

On private tours, our guides take you beyond the standard tourist paths, unveiling Tokyo's intriguing history, awe-inspiring landmarks, and bustling neighborhoods with a depth and insight unmatched by ordinary tours. Imagine exploring the Tokyo National Museum's stunning collections with a historian on your very own private tour, delving into the intricate world of Japanese aesthetics and design with an architect, or embarking on a day trip to witness the majestic Great Buddha of Kamakura. Learn about the history of Anime and pop culture of the city, or taste your way through the famous markets and bustling neighborhoods. Each Tokyo private tour offers you more than just a visit to a bucket-list destination; it's an immersive journey into the deeper context of the city's history.

John was excellent - knowledgeable, personable, communicates well - explained the importance of Tsukiji in Japanese history, showed and explained so many of the seafood and other products being sold, as well as the process for preparing; and got to taste several. Couldn’t have asked for more.
Maciej was exceptional. He has deep knowledge of the religious culture of Japan and its impact on modern Japan. He provided the insights we needed for understanding and valuing all that we are experiencing here.
Maria was wonderful! She conveyed such appreciation for the beautiful art that we saw at the Tokyo National Museum. Her comprehensive knowledge of art history was very helpful, and we left with a much better understanding of Japanese art and culture. We felt that our tour with Maria knit together many of the things that we had encountered on our incredible trip to Japan. Highly recommend!
