We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers visiting Japan for the first time. Motoko met us at our hotel and our private day tour began. We visited Asakusa, Akihabara, an Owl cafe, and Yanaka. Before entering the shrine, Motoko showed us how to properly wash our hands and purify ourselves. She also explained the history and the architecture of the shrine that we visited. Next, we headed to Akihabara where our son spent time browsing through the anime stores. Motoko was very patient as she helped to find other anime stores in search of specific items that our son wanted. Our visit to the Owl café was very unique and unexpected. Here, we were able to spend time with owls perched on your arm and where you can gently stroke their heads. I don't think you can get close and personal with these animals anywhere else! Motoko also suggested a nice place for us to eat lunch. We had a great lunch, eating tonkatsu, which was delicious. Our day ended with a visit to Yanaka, seeing a different side of the Tokyo area, a slower side. We saw the burial site of the last shogun as explained to us by Motoko. Throughout the tour, Motoko would ensure that we were okay since it was hot and humid. We used public transportation and learned how efficient and clean it is. We learned a lot with her and thoroughly enjoyed our day of sightseeing and experiencing Tokyo. She would ensure that everyone had a great time, which we did. We would highly recommend her for any tours.
Thank you very much for posting such a heartwarming review, Regan! I am glad to know you enjoyed exploring Tokyo with me. I also enjoyed hopping anime stores with your son and talking with all of you, which was a wonderful time to me. But I am so sorry to put many activieis in a day although the day was very very hot. I really appreciate your cooperation. Please visit Japan anytime again! I would like to take you to other places, not only in Tokyo. Hope to see you again. Thank you!!
