See Tokyo During the Tokyo Walk

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

Every year, the Tokyo Walk is organized in the various areas in Tokyo. I participated in summer 2010, when it was super hot and we almost got sunstroke (well not really but it felt like it). Walking among a group of sun-visored elderly ladies, we greatly underestimated the Tokyo Walk. But it put us in our place. There are routes of 7 km, 11 km or a pro route of 20 km, taking you through different areas. This way, you can participate up to five times a year and never walk the same route. In 2014, the dates are June 21st (Shinjuku & Roppongi), July 19th (Asakusa & Sumida river), September 20th (Hachioji & Machida), November 15th (Higashi Yamato & Tama), December 13th (Ueno & Kiba). Because the Tokyo Walk is not very well-known among foreigners, chances are that you are treated rather like a celebrity by the other participants.

Mitsuro foi muito pontual, responsável, organizou tudo aproveitando muito bem o tempo, conhecemos lugares maravilhosos o que seria impossível sem o guia, pois ficamos em Tokyo visitando muitos lugares, muitas linhas de metro, trens e ficaríamos desorientados, perdidos sem a orientação do guia. Para Brasileiros perfeito pois domina o Português, recomendo portando Mitsuro

Junko was an excellent choice for me! She came to the Yokohama port to meet my ship and guided me safely to my Tokyo hotel. I was not feeling 100% that day, and Junko took care of everything .. checking me in, taking care of my luggage, arranging early check-in, and seeing me safely to my room. She also made a cancellation for me for a restaurant booking. On the second day, my plans had chan...

We spent half a day with Mitsuru visiting Tokyo and had a great time. Mitsuru arrived at our hotel on time and came ready with a proposed itinerary. We changed the itinerary throughout the day to adapt for our two daughters (age 5 and 7) and Mitsuru had good recommendations. Mitsuru was knowledgeable of the different sites and neighborhoods we visited. He contributed information as we were walk...

Hiroyuki is a very friendly and heartily guide. He knows his way around well and has led me to places that are not crowded with tourists. His English is okay, but he is working to improve it. All in all, I would book him again, because he knows very well about Tokyo and carries the heart in the right place.

Makiko did a great job accommodating our requests for a more non traditional tour. She took us to a local restaurant for lunch and made sure to understand what we wanted to do. She included local cooking stores, sake tasting, zoo cafes, and of course a few traditional sites and gardens. She showed our daughter popular teen shopping stores as well as helping our son sample Japanese snacks. We woul...

Excellent plan preparation in advance of tour, asking for our preferences and suggesting practical options as needed. Also touched base at our hotel the night before, in case we needed to update anything. Tour to various locations was almost all by the extensive Tokyo subway system, which Toshi explained to us with a detailed system map. This is very useful, as - except for station names - many...
