Yukiko amazingly showed 2 jet-lagged seniors everything we planned PLUS a local sumo event. We were taxi dependent but this allowed my slow walking husband to enjoy every minute. We even had an unscheduled stop to purchase must haves for teen grandchildren. I think I have a feel for Tokyo, definitely have history and cultural background thanks to Yukiko. We will return to Tokyo in 12 days and will...
