Michiko met us at NRT and walked us through the process of getting our metro card (Suica) and then a ticket for the Skyliner to get us from NRT to Tokyo. We visited a few shrines on the way to our hotel. We met on the second day and visited the Bonsai garden and museum then walked around the area visiting several bonsai nurseries. We had a lunch break, then went to Kawagoe and visited a couple of shrines, seeing a fire ceremony. Following that, we came back to Tokyo and visited Shinjuku garden and then a shopping mall to pick up an adapter to charge my laptop (no 3 wire plugs in our room). Michiko heard us talking about a place called Yakatori Alley, or something like that, so she took us on a walk through there as it was very close to Shinjuku station. Our third day began with a subway ride to Asasuka and a water taxi to the detached palace. We walked the palace ground, then visited the outer market and fish market for lunch. Next, we visited Ginza to wander the streets and visit things like the Nissan showroom, and a few famous buildings and stores. We ended the day going to the Imperial Palace East Garden and walking through it. Michiko is a very pleasant person that is excited to share the history and culture of the area with visitors. She asked us many times if we needed a break, snack, restrooms, etc., and tailoring the day to what she heard us talking about. A very enjoyable trip for our first visit to Japan and it is all due to Michiko. Thanks Michiko.
Dear Guy, Thank you for your good review. It's only because of your cooperation that made the tour special in spite of the holiday congestion. I've learned a guiding principle for human life from you two. Your words will uphold me greatly now and forever. And I've also leaned the function of the V-shaped roof material. I greatly appreciate your kindness. Bon voyage! Best regards, Michiko
