“ Highlights of Tokyo ”

We were interested in a cultural and historical overview of Tokyo and Yoko delivered the most delightful day-long private tour. We not only visited temples, shrines, gardens, historical districts and architecture, but Yoko explained the tradition and meaning behind everything we saw. This was primarily a walking tour, but Yoko helped us cover a great deal of territory using the subways. An exceptional highlight of our day was when Yoko brought us to a local, traditional family-run tea shop for an afternoon break where the owner afterward presented us with an artistic drawing of the antique tea bowls we had used and description of their historical significance. We would highly recommend Yoko to anyone wishing to see Tokyo.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for a great review, Linda. I enjoyed those one day and a half with you, a lovely couple. We covered the Kabukiza Theater, Asakusa with Nakamuraza Theater, Ueno Park, East Gardens, Meiji Jingu Shrine, Shibuya Crossing and that Antique Gallery where you enjoyed the tea ceremony. It started to be rainy in the afternoon, but because I was with you and that lovely family hosts, it was quite heart-warming. As it the beginning of the year, I wish you and Ron's health and seeing you again soon to see more sights together. Thank you again for your review.
