Originally a wholesale market for professionals, Tsukiji market is definitely the best place to visit to encounter all kinds of Japanese traditional food. Not only marketplaces but also cheap-eat restaurants lines up the alleys all over the market.
A garden uniquely designed to draw seawater from Tokyo Bay, Hamarikyu was built over a long period of time by successive shoguns of the Edo period. The garden appears dramatically different depending on the time of the day and the season.

“ Awesome Time at Tokyo! ”
We had a lovely time with Masako. She was very friendly, accommodating, and informative. We never felt rushed and most importantly, my kids loved her. She spoke english very well and provided great information on history and culture for all the sites we visited. We highly recommend her as a guide. Thank you Masako

“ Truly unforgettable! ”
We had our 1day tour with Dai last June 19 and it was truly unforgettable! Dai brought us to all the places we requested and showed us everything we wanted to see. He even went out of his way to help us with our shopping! Dai speaks good English. He is very kind, patient and he is good with kids too! It's like having a good friend around and not a tour guide. Our day with Dai made us love Tokyo even more! We would highly recommend Dai to all our friends and relatives who will be coming to Japan! Thank you so much Dai!
Thank you so much for such a great review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. It was very fun to be able to go shopping with you. I was so happy I could share the time with you. Please take good care of yourself. Thanks a million !!!

“ Mayumi's tour was highlight of our Tokyo visit ”
On our second day in Tokyo, we enjoyed a fantastic full day tour with Mayumi. Her professional but warm and bubbly personality immediately put us at ease. Her English and knowledge of various cultures/religions is excellent. She is a high energy person with lots of enthusiasm. Even though she has visited the sights hundreds of times, she seemed to really enjoy each place she took us. We had a few email exchanges before we arrived in Tokyo so she could plan our tour for what we wanted to see most. Much of it was left to her discretion since she is the expert. We either walked or took the subway. She walked at our pace- a middle speed- and reminded us to drink water. It was well-planned for the most efficient use of time. We saw all of the major hightlights including Asakusa, the fish market, a lovely boat ride on the Sumida River to Odaiba and the Hamaryiku Gardens. When we accidentally happened upon both a Buddhist and a Shinto wedding, Mayumi was able to explain it all to us. She also taught us a few words and phrases. We had a great lunch at a popular local tempura cafe. What a perfect day! Thank you, Mayumi! We hope if you ever come to the US, you will let us know so we can see you. If we come back to Japan, we will be sure to find you again. Cheers!

“ First trip to Japan ”
Our group of 14 people had a wonderful time with Takako. Even with a big group Takako managed it very well in the subway with lots of crowds. The lunch which Takako had reserved in advance was super delicious, we had a private japanese style room which made an unique experience too! Thank you Takako and hope to see you again if we'll be in Tokyo Natalie
