Toshi is an excellent guide. I have a fun and lovely time exploring Tokyo (Imperial Garden, Tsukiji Market, Harajuku and Shibuya Area) with her. She is nice, friendly, patient and engaging. I have learned a lot about Tokyo (the history, culture, transportation system) from her. She is helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to answer my enquiries and give good recommendations/ travels tips about Tokyo. I have enjoyed the tour. Thank you very much, Toshi (:
It was a pleasure meeting you , Madeline! I felt like I was travelling with a family member. We were lucky to have witnessed two special events as they were only available in this week. The Imperial Palace was open to the public for fall foliage. The combination of traditional castle structures and red Japanese Maple leaves was breathtaking, wasn't it? Another lucky coincidence was that we could see the ceremonial shrine for Daijosai ( The first annual harvest festival performed by the new emperor ). As a matter of fact, the virtual reality experience in Harajuku was quite fun! Glad to see that you enjoyed finding Kawaii ( cute ) stuff in Takeshita streeet. Enjoy the rest of your stay and I hope to see you again!
