Tokyo Now #9: Tokyo Free Walking Tour Now (1)
- Tokyo Now
While our walking tours are still suspended, it does not mean we totally suspend TFWT activities. In addition to regular monthly meetings, members are organizing various kinds of online activities, such as study meeting (ex. Recommended small talk topics, deep dive of Japanese castle, popular animated movies & magazine, etc.), virtual tours for members to be prepared for real tour, catch-up gathering.
Also, we have just kicked-off on-site walking tours for members, observing the latest advisory from the government and health authorities with the utmost care and attention.
Focus of this issue is the on-site members only tour held on the latest Saturday.

Participant members gathered at the meeting place “Tokyo Station Marunouchi Central Gate (ground floor)”. It’s been almost 4 months since we met on-site, so happy indeed!
Sharing information, we walked entire course.
Output is the best input indeed. Members are so eager to share and learn, thus we stayed at the first view point “Tokyo Station” for 30min!
Let us introduce you a unique objet you will encounter during the tour.
