Tokyo Mystery Game!

Tokyo Mystery Game!

Solve the clues in our Mystery Game to discover some of Tokyo's best kept secrets.

Tokyo is the world's largest city, so it should come as no surprise that even the locals haven't seen all of this megalopolis. Whether you've ticked off Tokyo's classic sites or not - the Skytree, Asakusa's Sensoji Temple, Meiji Shrine, Harajuku - perhaps you'd like to delve a bit deeper and uncover a side of Tokyo that visitors rarely see.

That's where our Tokyo Mystery Game comes in! A type of scavenger hunt, wherein players solve riddles and gather clues to progress on foot, train or bus to must-see destinations they would otherwise likely miss. To preserve the mystery, descriptions of each destination are omitted, but if you are successful, you are sure to discover some new favourite places in this fantastic city.

When to go: You can play the Tokyo Mystery Game on any day of the year - we'll simply include the instructions and clues in your InsideJapan Tours Info-Pack. We think the clues can be unscrambled by anyone 12 years old or over.
