“ Delightful, off the beaten path day in Tokyo ”

It was our third visit of Tokyo, having seen most of the tourist attractions that were recommenced by friends, TripAdvisor and various Japan travel guides during our past two stays. So we retained the service of a private guide this time, to take us off the beaten path a bit, and were glad that we did. We visited Asakusa and did the usual tourists’ sighting and shopping in this popular venue, then visited Ryogoku (the sumo stadium) and even had the traditional sumo wrestler meal for lunch. Next, we headed to the Edo Museum (where Masa gave us a far better explanation of what we saw than any robotic recorded guide that we could have rented would). To really step off the beaten path, we visted the Yanaka Village last, where we learned even more new things about the Japanese culture from Masa, who by the way, having spent years iin London, spoke perfect English! We were so impressed with Masa, that we plan to seek his company again, on our next visit to other places around Tokyo, that are still within his coiverage.

Masaharu:

Dear Donald-san, Thank you for your nice review and very encouraging message. It was my great pleasure sharing your valuable time together in touring around characteristic spots in Tokyo. I am just grateful if you enjoyed learning various aspects of authentic history and traditional culture in off the beaten path places, as well as main tourists venues. I also enjoyed myself learning a lot from you through our conversation about many things in USA. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thank you very much again and wishing you all the best! Masaharu
