 Each site shows its typical picture and the rough tour time from the center of Tokyo. But the destination can be modifiable according to your preference. Let's make your own private itinerary after choosing your favorite destinations, with reference to the maps of “In-Tokyo Tour” and “Around-Tokyo Tour”.
