Toshi met us at our hotel at the agreed time, and explained the course for the day. We went with her to the subway to purchase our day travel ticket. Our first stop was The Imperial Garden which was beautiful even in the winter, then caught subway to Harajuku which we walked through and found a Soba noodle place for our lunch. Next stop was Meiji Shrine where Toshi talked us through the importance of Shrines in Japanese culture. We then caught 2 more trains to Odaiba city, one of the trains being a driverless train. We found the entire day amazing, and Toshi was a great communicator telling us all about history and meanings of many ideals we encountered. We highly recommend Toshi as a guide for anyone wanting a truly authentic experience in Japan.
Arigato, or thank you for the excellent review, Heather and Peter. It was a warm day so that we could enjoy walking around Tokyo. We took the front seats on the automated-guideway-train named Yurikamome line that allowed us to get the magnificent the view of Tokyo water front and Mt. Fuji. I hope you continue a pleasant trip in Japan with your daughter. I hope to see you again. Toshi(T-chan)
