Show Business

Asakusa has also long been developed as the town of show business. In the Edo(now Tokyo) period(1603-1867), several kabuki and puppet theaters opened there and it became the most popular amusement area in Edo. Today, there are still various types of theaters including popular one, vaudeville ones and even a strip club. Kabuki is sometimes performed in Asakusa Public Hall. In my tour,  A one day tour for the first time visitors to Tokyo , Asakusa is a main destination. If you join my this tour, you may see such theaters. Why don't you join me?

Hiro is extremely nice but we are very sorry we used him for our first trip to Japan. It is not fair to have a guide that cannot tell you stories about the places or anything other than the paragraph you read on triplelights I about the sight you are visiting. Hiro really should not be an English tour guide, it was not fair to us, we spent 4 days just following him around from place to place in...

“ A half day around Nikko ”

Very Good
5 months ago Traveler: Eric -   Tour Guide: Hiroyuki

Hiroyuki is a very knowledgeable man. Teaching me about the history of Japan and the Edo period. I learned a lot from him. It was during Golden Week in Nikko so it was very crowded so we had to change up the itinerary to a walking distance instead of taking a bus. So the tour was a little shorter and went to less places but what can you do? Still had fun and learned a lot. Thank you for the tour.

Hiroyuki was great! We booked him only a 1 day prior and it was a very easy process. He met us at the hotel and built a custom itinerary. When we wanted to do things of the itinerary it was not a problem. He would take pictures for us of us which is always nice. He had a lot of great knowledge that made the tour very insightful. At the end of the day we wanted to stay in Asakusa so he departed fro...

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.
