Ads Everywhere in Japan

 

If there is one thing noticeable in Japan, it is that it's covered up in advertisements, most especially print ads. Seeing ads inside trains, buses, and malls are nothing special. But seeing the huge amount of print advertisements in these places is what made it extra-ordinary.

 

But wait! If you thought these ads are just found in buses and trains, then you are wrong. Taxis also have huge boards inside them that more or less advertise a certain thing. Billboards, elevators, escalators, a flight of stairs, rental bicycles, vending machines, give-away pocket tissue papers, pavements, subways... name it, it has an ad on it.

You will also encounter an area particularly in subways where magazines and other reading materials are free for grabs. We call this "free papers" and they are available mostly in public places such as train stations.

We used Kato for a one day tour of Kyoto including Fushimi, Sanjusanjen-Do temple, Gion area, Kinkaku-Ji temple, Arishiyama Monkey Park and Arishiyama Bamboo Park. He met us at Tokyo Station.

Excellent

I booked Toshihiro as his previous reviews were so good and he did not disappoint. The one day tour was a great way to see so many sites and get to many different parts of town without the hassle of planning or getting lost in the subway system. Toshihiro is a true gentleman, very patient and considerate with impeccable manners. We would definitely recommend booking him.

My mother and I were fortunate enough to be able to book 2 days of touring with Michiko during our visit to Japan this month. We spent 1 day touring Kyoto and a second day touring Nara and walked away with incredible photos and memories not soon forgotten. Michiko was a wonderful tour guide who was not only well organized and detail oriented, but she was also very personable and went out of he...

“ Kind and Attentive Guide. ”

Excellent
10 hours ago Traveler: Pierre -   Tour Guide: Toshihiro

Toshihiro is a kind and attentive guide who knows his way around Tokyo. We had him for two days and we are already missing his reassuring presence. I suggest you stay 5 nights in Tokyo and hire a guide for two days and then go by yourself. Tokyo is a very easy city ... to get lost in, even using Google Maps as the GPS signal is irregular because of narrow streets. Good Luck !!

12 hours ago Traveler: Claudia -   Tour Guide: Masaki

There are tour guides and then there's Makoon! He is above and beyond personable, knowledgeable, and passionate about Kyoto and Japan. And about making that connection with what his guests hope to get out of their visit. He really shines showcasing Kyoto and his love for his work is clear. We learned and saw more in one day, in a fun way with us and our kids, than any amount of research on our own...

Our family of four had an amazing time touring with Dai. He is very knowledgable and kept our two teenage girls attention for 8 hours, which is no easy task. Such a great Tokyo highlight tour with a mix of traditional and new; from Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, teenage girl couture to all things kawaii. The culinary sites at Tsukiji outer market whetted our pallets; grilled tuna, eel and sca...

“ Best Tokyo sightseeing in a day ”

Excellent

I was travelling alone and hired Kazuo for 8 hours tour of Tokyo. It was my first day in Japan. He customized my day so that I got to see all the sights that were not included in a group tour that I was going to join the next day. He was very knowledgable and shared detailed information on the sights and day to day Japanese culture and ways of life. It was nice to interact with a Tokyo native and ...

Very interesting and informative tour. Learning more about this sect of Buddhism and the spiritual significance of the area was enlightening. Highly recommend a monk tour instead of “regular” tour.
