Very friendly knowledgeable staff gave an excellent private experience of Japanese tradition. You get to try chopping wood with a 150 year old katana, dressing in beautiful classy kimonos, and making tea in a tea ceremony. Thoroughly enjoyed. Would recommend!!

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
