“ The best day in Tokyo!! ”

What a wonderful day with Taka!! Just a pleasure... From our first encounter with a smile, to helping us make dinner reservations and planning our suitcase transfer for the next day and all this even before starting the “tour”, to a full day of adventure. Taka first took us to very popular Harajuku, and down beautiful back streets, to then being thrown off his plans by my husband who wanted the “local flare and tour”. With a smile and a skip, not missing a beat (and probably hungry... we had a late breakfast but he likely had been up for a while), he turned right around, took us back to the subway and took us to the most beautiful local area within Tokyo to visit an old traditional home, just beautiful...stunning... and we would have never known about it or found it on our own! A beautiful stroll, another beautiful and local neighborhood, and finally some lunch. Delicious ramen, at a counter, just like we hoped. Off to yet another area, and as lucky as we were, and as reactive as was Taka, he got us up to the sky deck at the Tokyo city view as it was surprisingly open. What a view!!! A little stop for coffee, and finally another walk through the most beautiful garden! Again, we would have missed it, had we been on our own, but he insisted we go “that way”... thank you TAKA, well done! We hope to see you on a future trip to Japan, and if you make it to Paris, we sure hope to hear from you then!

Taka:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Sylvie! I really appreciated it and can't thank you enough for such a wonderful words to my tour. The time we shared during the day was precious, so I wanted to do my best. There are many beautiful places all over Japan. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your days.
