What to Expect

Ashikaga is located 80km north From Tokyo. The city has a lovely atmosphere with a lot of tourist attractions for relaxing.
From Asakusa station we'll take an express train and enjoy 1 hour 15 minute ride to Ashikaga.

First we'll visit Ashikaga Gakko which is regarded as the oldest university in Japan. You can enjoy traditional Japanese buildings and a beautiful garden.
Then we will have a lunch near the site.
After that we'll visit Bannaji temple. Recently the temple has been designated as a national treasure.
Then you have two options for a final destination.
1. Ashikaga Flower Park - recommended for garden lovers. You'll enjoy strolling the beautiful botanical garden, but I'll strongly recommend you to visit there in spring, when wisteria are in full bloom (late April to early May). The park is famous for the largest wisteria in Japan. I'm sure you'll enjoy the magnificent view of the flower.
2. Coco Farm & Winery - recommended for wine lovers. It's the nearest winery from Tokyo. The winery also has a nice cafe & restaurant with a nice view.
Then we'll come back to Tokyo.
I'm sure you'll enjoy the trip to Ashikaga, the lovely countryside.
*** Please note that the itinerary above might be a bit changed in spring when Wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park are in full bloom. ***

“ Great experience and fun ”

Yoko was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She covered a lot of the important sights in Tokyo but didn't make it feel rushed. Tokyo can be overwhelming for the first-timer but Yoko helped us navigate very easily. She also helped us with shopping at the end of the busy day as a lot of the department store employees don't speak English. She helped us with ticket reservations for the rest of the trip too! All in all it was a very good experience and would recommend her for other first-timers!!

Yoko:
Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Raman. I didn't expect that you posted the review such an early timing. I'm grateful to you for taking your time to post the review. I was afraid if you were tired after a long day with a lot of walk, but I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the day. I also had a lovely time with you and your wife. Hearing about your daughters, your country and your hometown is very interesting. I hope you'll enjoy Kyoto and Hiroshima. Besides the places, Japan has a various lovely tourist destinations. I hope you'll come to Japan in the near future and experience "Onsen" or hot springs and hope to see you then. Have a lovely trip! Yoko

“ First Impressions of Tokyo ”

We spent the afternoon of our first day in Tokyo with Yoko in the lead. She guided us through the use of the subway system and provided us with a less complicated map so that we could easily see where we were going. Our first stop was the amazing Hama-rikyu Gardens. Yoko prompted us to take part in the tea ceremony at the Tea House in the center of the gardens which we enjoyed partaking in the special tea that they offer. This was a wonderful start to the rest of our time with her. We would highly recommend her as a guide. Her English was quite good and her knowledge of the sites was very informative.

Yoko:
Thank you very much for the great review, Annemarie. I didn't expect it - thank you so much for taking your time to post such a wonderful review. It was a lovely day and I really enjoyed the day with you. I'm grateful to you for sharing the photos about your country, Bermuda. I've never been there and had very little knowledge, but thanks to you now I know your country is very lovely place with lots of tourist attractions. I'd like to visit there someday in the near future. I hope you'll enjoy your stay in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara. I hope you'll come to Japan and hope to see you again. Thank you and have a great trip! Yoko

Yoko:
Thank you very much for your fabulous review! I didn't expect it because you're still in Japan and I suppose you're busy. I'm grateful to you for taking your time to post the review. I had unforgettable time with you. I'm glad to hear you'll definitely back to Tokyo. I hope I can see both of you some day in the near future. Please enjoy your stay in Kyoto.

“ A great day from Yokohama Port to Kamakura ”

Yoko met us on time at the cruise port. We walked to the train station and took two trains and a bus to the first temple in Kamakura. Yoko mentioned an option to have green tea here which was a lovely experience among a giant bamboo forest. Then we walked down a very busy shopping street and enjoyed a nice lunch (Yoko helped us find something we liked on the menu). Another bus took us to see the Big Budha; Yoko showed us how to do the cleansing ritual as we entered. We returned on the bus to the train station, then one train to the Yokohama train station and a taxi back to the ship. There was a lot of time spent traveling on the trains and buses, but those trips were nearly as much fun as seeing the Karakura sites. We returned full of the sites and sounds of a lively city and peaceful temples. Thanks Yoko for 7 wonderful hours we will long remember!

Yoko:
Dear Jean, Thank you very much for taking your time to post a great review! I didn't expect it because you're still on the cruise ship so I'm very glad to have such a wonderful review from you. I really appreciate it. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the day. The day was a bit cold, but relatively a beautiful day with no rain. It's a lovely day to walk around Kamakura. I enjoyed the day with you, your husband and your friends. All of you are nice and kind. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your cruise. I do hope you'll come to Tokyo someday in the near future and I hope I'll meet you then. Kind regards, Yoko

“ Very concerned about the guests ”

She is kind and caring. Always wants to make sure that the guests are taken care of. Speaks good English

Yoko:
Dear Sri, Thank you very much for taking your time to post the lovely review. Tokyo and Kamakura have different tastes, I'm sure you enjoyed both cities. I'm very happy to help you exploring the two popular destinations. Japan has a lot of attractive places. I hope you'll come back to Japan in the near future and I'm looking forward to seeing you then. Best regards, Yoko
