What to Expect

Visit Koedo Kawagoe, or little Edo. Kawagoe is small town that you can walk around.
You will find not only traditional Edo style houses, but also remains of Edo period, as well as Meiji, Tisho and Showa periods.
You would feel as if you slip back in time!!

We will walk the town either clockwise or anticlockwise, so that we can cover the main sightseeing spots, including Kitain Temple, Kawagoe Castle, Hikawa Shrine as well as Kurazukuri Zone where you can stroll around by visiting shops for souvenirs, Japanese sweets and Japanese traditional snacks.

So in one day, in addition to visit historical sites such as Kawagoe Castle, and Kitain Temple -where you could actually see the buildings and cultural assets from Edo period, you can also enjoy shopping and snacking while strolling at the Kurazukuri Street.

If it is too much to walk, we can also take city loop bus.

“ A wonderful tour of Tsukiji Market with Sachimi ”

Sachimi was an absolutely fantastic guide! She met us promptly at our hotel and took us through Ginza before starting the tour of Tsukiji. She explained everything about the market and each of the different things on sale we saw and also took us to the best spots for fish and other foods (instead of letting us buy them at the first stall we saw them). Having a Japanese speaking guide who was able to help us communicate was incredibly useful and Sachimi did an amazing job with everything. We would highly recommend her for a tour!

Sachimi:

Hi, Juan-san, Thank you so much for your wonderful review!! I am so glad you enjoyed the market so much. I also had good time with you seeing all of your happy face while eating “Oishi” food! Hope you had great holiday in Japan, and would come back again! Best regards Sachimi

“ Highlight of our Tokyo trip ”

You MUST book Sachimi for your tours. She is so easy to work with, speaks perfect English, and is beyond accommodating. We were a group of 8 adults on a tour to Kawagoe. Sachimi met us at our hotel in Ikebukuro and escorted is by train and bus to a kimono rental shop in Kawagoe. Having her there made it so easy to converse with the staff. The dress up went smoother than expected. It was so much fun walking around the historic town all dressed up. She pointed out landmarks and took us to places with the perfect backdrop for our photos. She even too pictures of us and is sending them to us. She selected the perfect restaurant for lunch which was excellent. This experience really was the highlight of our trip and had created many memorable moments for all of us. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting ... read more

“ Best decision to go with Sachimi in Tokyo! ”

As a family of four with two younger teenagers, we had the benefit of having Sachimi as our guide in Tokyo for two days. It was the kids’ first trip to Japan, and we were pleased that Sachimi was able to custom tailor the itineraries to include everyone’s interests; samurai history/demonstration, traditional tea ceremony, Tsujuki fish market, Meiji shrine, Harakuju, delicious udon lunch, and much more. Sachimi was very well-versed in the subway and train system and helped us learn how to manage it. Prior to our arrival her communication with us was excellent and responsive and she planned our days efficiently, so we were able to maximize the short two days. It rained the first day and fortunately Sachimi planned accordingly changing things around, overall was very considerste of our needs.... read more

I am so pleased that your could maximize yout stay in Tokyo by having me, and even more that your children enjoyed all aspects. Thank you for inviting me to tea ceremony. It was really nice experience for all! Please enjoy whole your stay in Japan, and I hope to see you again in the future! best regards, sachimi
