In addition to Togoshi Ginza and Sunamachi Ginza, the Jujo Ginza shopping district is known as one of Tokyo’s best three old shopping streets, and has 500 shops with prepared foods, fresh foods, clothing items and so on, and you will not only be surprised by the scale of the area, but also the cheapness. Special price tags are seen everywhere, and good deals are arranged. Each store cooperates to actively promote district-wide events leading to a real community feel. They have thousands of surprisingly cheap items such as croquettes (1 piece for 30 yen), yakitori (1 piece for 50 yen), socks for 50 yen and so on. There are many locally-based shops, and it is also characteristic that the distance between shopkeepers and shoppers is short.

Have you visited loads of temples? Dined out on ramen, sushi and Kobe beef? Basically followed the well trodden tourist path? Ready to see something a bit different. Here is an opportunity to witness the authentic Japan. Tokyo Backstreet Tours takes you on a bike tour away from the hustle and bustle of central Tokyo. Cycling around the suburbs you'll have an opportunity to visit local markets, sample tempura from a bar run by several generations of the same family, go to a traditional sake store and much, much more.

I am a first-time visitor to Japan and travelled by myself so I booked one-on-one guiding tours. Had a wonderful time with all three guides from Tokiotours - Thom, Stefanie and Haruka. Thom is an encyclopedia on history, culture and religious practices and also a very nice guy, Stefanie with a gift of bringing Japanese history alive and making it very memorable and Haruka with her love of Japanese cuisine thanks to whom I enjoyed the very best and freshest sea-urchins on Tokyo Tsukiji market ever. Thank you to all of you!

Touring Tokyo’s lesser-visited spots in a small group on bicycle is a must do for adventurous visitors to Japan’s greatest city. Takeshi’s home grown knowledge of the neighbourhoods and easy going personality makes this less like a tour and more like a leisurely day with an old mate sharing a place he loves with visiting friends. Great variety in the places we cycled and every stop was a good blend of history meets modern culture. Even our 16 year old loved the trip and enjoyed the local funky bikes. Couldn’t recommend this tour more highly and great value for money to boot. Thank you Takeshi, we’ll see you again on our next visit.
