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.

Aquiles is dynamic and masterful. He has an extensive library of information and a charming manner for dispensing it. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Manami is awesome! We had a great tour and learned so much - she took us to places that only a knowledgeable local would know and shared a lot of great information about the history and current state of Otaku culture. We highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in understanding more about this aspect of Japanese culture.
Jay was a phenomenal and knowledgeable guide for the Tokyo in a Day Tour: Yanesen, Ueno and Asakusa. The mid-July weather was less than hospitable, with close to 90% humidity and light rain, changing to a downpour in the evening. Jay was undaunted. We visited beautiful temples, shrines, gardens, burial grounds, while Jay imparted SO much history, past to present. Lunch was in a tiny spot where I asked for culture and dining hacks, Jay happily obliged. I highly recommend Jay, his wealth of knowledge and ease of imparting information. I hope to use Context Tours in Tokyo, 2025, and Jay again!
