Ok, we admit it. If we were to bump into a Samurai on the Nihonbashi bridge we’d probably run a mile. However having old Tokyo brought to life in our imaginations for the day is a much more appealing prospect – and that’s just what you’ll get on this wonderful, back-in-time tour of Japan’s capital.
Bespoke’s historian will lead you on a walk through the oldest parts of Tokyo (back then known as Edo) to reveal a history you’d never otherwise be able to detect. From a visit to a 350-year-old department store (yes really) to the Edo-jo castle via numerous stops in between, you’ll learn all about the life and culture of the shogun era, the samurai culture, and – most importantly – how they have influenced and shaped modern Japan.
On this in-depth, expert-led exploration of Tokyo’s hidden history, you’ll never look at Tokyo the same way again.
