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.

This was wayyyy more than just a food tour. We chose a Sunday evening, which seemed to be less crowded overall. John took us to the BEST places that we would never have found on our own, and entertained us with Japanese and food history as well as interesting conversation all evening. Our 17, 20, and 22 year olds were so intrigued with the nightlife and energy on the tour. John was phenomenal and catered the tour to our family’s preferences. Choose this tour!!!
I thought Jay was an excellent tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and we all enjoyed listening to his presentation and perspective. I would highly recommend him.
Informative tour and gracious guide
