“ A wonderful "Sumo" sized tour experience ”

We had a a very full and fantastic day with our guide Kahoko. She was ready and filled with all sorts of information, maps and transportation schedules and procedures for us. She was answering so many of our questions that we had without even asking. She readily made changes to our itinerary due to the rain and to my physical limitations. She aptly and efficiently took us through the Tsujiki Fish Market. We were very fortunate to be immediately seated at a favored/popular sushi restaurant and had the omakase (chef's choice) which was delectably fresh, generous in portion ad beautifully presented (no photographs allowed!). While at the fish market, Kahoko directed me to a knife vendor since I had wanted to buy a high quality carbon steel sashimi knife. Through her interpretation, I was able to learn quite a lot of the care and use of the knife which I greatly appreciated. Plus she enjoys cooking as well and has experience in filleting fish. We also visited the Ginza area (where we met an up and coming sumo wrestler) for shopping, visited the Kabuki theater and took a break at a tea shop with a beautiful garden; the Imperial Palace, Asakusa area browsing and shopping and visit to Senoji Temple. We arrived back to our hotel at 4 pm very tired but loaded with many suggestions, places to visit and directions for our time on our own. We did go to a Fugu (pufferfish) restaurant the next night that she suggested and it was a wonderful and memorable experience. Not only was Kahoko full of very helpful travel information and historic background of Tokyo, she was so warm with a sense of humor and engaging personality. And very patient and sensitive to my physical limits. If/when we return to Tokyo, we will definitely have Kahoko be our guide to other parts of the Tokyo area.
