English-speaking support group for families in Tokyo

TMG Tours

Join us on a local tour of your neighborhood, to help you acclimatize and feel more comfortable with your new locale.

What are TMG Tours?

TMG Tours are a chance for families to get to know their neighborhoods better. If you are new to Japan/Tokyo and want to know what is around the area you live in, these tours are perfect for you.

Find out about:

Local banks


Post Offices

Drug stores

Convenience stores

Jidokan (play areas)


Train stations and bus stops

And anything else you want to know about!

There are 2 hour and half day options available, for the whole family or just for mum/dad.

Each tour is led by a local mother who has lived in Tokyo for quite some time. As you are led around (on foot), you will get a sense of how your neighborhood feels, get to know all the "must know" places and hot spots and how they work, and have a chance to really pick the brains of the local mother about the area, living in Tokyo/Japan with children, useful resources and so on. Our aim is that you come away feeling excited and comfortable about your new home and that you feel a little less isolated.

2 Hour Tour

This compact tour is a great intro to your neighborhood taking in all the "must know" places for families. It'll be go-go-go as you walk around but really give you a sense for the layout and feel of your new town.

Special introductory price of 20,000 yen for bookings between December 2020-end of February 2021

Half-day Tour

This is a 5 hour experience, taken at a more leisurely pace including a stop for lunch* in the middle. A slightly more in-depth look at your local area, and more opportunity to ask your guide any questions or concerns on your mind.

Special Introductory price of 30,000 yen for bookings between December 2020-end of February 2021

*Lunch will be an additional cost paid on the day
