What to Expect

 

Only have half a day in Tokyo? Don’t worry, you can see and get what you exactly want in Tokyo in this tour. We will visit Asakusa, the most popular tourist sight in Tokyo, to see the Senso-ji temple and Nakamise-dori shopping street. There are several perfect photo spots, many things to try and eat, and wish for your luck in the authentic Japanese style.

Afterwards, we will visit Kappabashi where you can get all the unique kitchen utensils such as chopsticks, knives and bento boxes,and feel the neat works by the craftsman in the area.

These goods are also very popular as a souvenir for your friends and families.

Also, as an option, you can try the plastic food sample making here, which magically looks real. If you want to try this, please mention to the guide so that they can book the session for you (*the fee for the activity is NOT included in the tour fee).

 

 

Highlights

In Asakusa which is visited by more than half of the overseas tourists, you will encounter Tokyo’s oldest temple Sensoji Temple as well as the Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate), which is the outermost gate of Sensoji Temple as well as the street lined with old-school shops that lead to the inner precincts of the shrine. Many of the stores offer services in English.

Kappabashi is the street located between Ueno and Asakusa with shops dealing in cookware. With over 100 years of history, customers from all over Japan, whether they be amateur cooks or professional chefs, come to the street. And even in recent years, it has become a hit with the overseas tourists as well.

“ Amazing tour in Tokyo! ”

Can’t say enough good things about Dai! It was our first time in Tokyo and had only one free day from business to do a quick overview tour of Tokyo, and Dai took lead and hit every single area we wanted to see, the best part was how patient he was with us with multiple stopping places that we wanted to see. He was great at communicating with locals to help us try new foods and even arranged lunch for us at the oldest ramen establishment in Tokyo! Great job Dai, see you soon!

“ Terrific Tokyo with Riko ”

Okay, so if you have a husband and two adult children traveling with you that all have very different interests, then Riko is the guide for you. Our four day tour was an unforgettable experience! Riko made navigating hectic Tokyo not only a breeze but tons of fun. We were satisfied with points of interest from Imperial gardens and Shinto shrines to cat cafes and coffee shops. The stress free trip and Riko's attention to detail was immaculate including a day trip to Mt. Fuji with a private driver. Riko is not only a fantastic tour guide, but we are honored to call her our friend! Thank you Riko!!

“ Awesome Service ”

We booked last minute and they was able to accommodate us with a day. Once we arrived our driver was already waiting for us. He waited for us to get our JR Pass and our WiFi pocket. The service was excellent. I highly recommend this company.

“ Very Thorough and Caring Guide ”

From the very beginning after I booked Yoko, she began to email me ideas and itineraries to consider. She also mentioned she was doing dry runs through the areas we wanted to see so she could figure out timing for us. I was impressed at her dedication. Once we arrived in Tokyo, she had subway maps and restaurant pamphlets for us to keep us organized. She spent extra time with us to make sure we got around safely. She suggested places to visit that our sons would enjoy, and because of this we actually got one of our best photo opportunities of the trip when she took us to a cafe that printed our images on our lattes! She emailed pictures after the tour. She speaks great English and is easy to understand. You can tell she really cares for her job and her clients. My one piece of criticism would be that she seems unaccustomed to young children, so frequently seemed overwhelmed by our young boys and their hyper energy. She was strict about where we could use our stroller and where we couldn't, and that felt a bit harsh to us. If you are traveling without kids, DEFINITELY choose Yoko. She is great at her job. She even gave us suggestions for places to visit in the next city in Japan where we were headed.

“ best layover tour guide experience ”

Shinishiro-san was very friendly and informative. He was patient and very accommodating during our all too brief but fun tour of Tokyo during our layover there. If you are looking for a great tour guide to show you around Japan, we highly recommend him! We know we will when decide to come back to visit Japan again.
