Tokyo Free Walking Tour will suspend all of its tours until April 15, in light of the situation surrounding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The health and safety of our guests has always been our priority. The suspension was decided as a precautionary measure observing the latest government advisory to avoid crowds and gatherings in confined spaces. The suspension may be shortened or extended depending on how the situation develops. We will announce on this website on any updates on when we resume our tours. We apologize for any inconveniences, and very much appreciate your understanding. Note: The suspension has now been extended to April 15 (updated Mar 24)
Following the cancellation of the tour at the East Gardens of the Imperial Place, this is to inform you that the Asakusa tours at 10am and 1pm and Ueno Park tour at 1:30pm on October 13th have been cancelled. This cancellation is due to the impact of the super typhoon No. 19 or Hagibis hitting Tokyo with violent winds and substantial rain. Although the typhoon will pass through Tokyo tomorrow (October 13th) am, the train services are expected to remain suspended for equipment inspections or substantially delayed. Under these circumstances it is difficult for us to ensure the satisfactory tours. We hope you will understand the situation and are looking forward to welcoming you at other occasions.
