Dear friends,

I was born in Tokyo and brought up in Yokohama, near Tokyo. All my ancestors were born in Tokyo for more than 300 years, as long as I know. I’ve been working in the field of education for a long time enjoying communicating with people of different generations, ethnic backgrounds, men & women, dogs, cats, birds and flowers, fish…….

Now, are you wondering about making your tour schedule ?
“I want to see cherry blossoms in Japan, but they die away so quickly…its’ over? Oh? Can I see them in Hakone, but, is Hakone far and also crowded? Umm….’’
“I want to see Tokyo, but the bay area in Yokohama looks charming, too. Can I see both? The time I can spend there is limited, umm….”
“Can I have some unique experience or workshop in Tokyo, not just a well-known sightseeing tour?”

If so, please let me know. I’ll suggest the following plan, as an example:

Day 1: (Afternoon) Half day tour in Tokyo; (Evening) Bay side cruise in Yokohama
Day 2: (Start early in the morning to Hakone)
Day 3: There are 2 choices: 1st option- Stay overnight in Hakone, enjoying hot springs, viewing gorgeous Mt. Fuji in the evening and early in the following morning (and move to Kyoto from Odawara station if you’re planning on the following day)/ 2nd option- Come back to Tokyo after the day trip and enjoy some unique cultural experiences.

Looking forward to seeing you in Japan, Ai
