Overview

This 4-hour half day tour will take you to some must see spots in the heart of Tokyo. The rout will change as to the place of your stay. We will exchange e-mail and make it best for your trip.

What to Expect

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could walk in the center of Tokyo like an Edokko, a native-born Tokyoite? I’d be happy to help you walk like that even if you’ve just arrived here as a new visitor.

Ai’s 'Tokyo, Old & New Tour’ Course 1 will take you to Asakusa, Kabukiza-theatre, Ginza, and Shimbashi areas.

Asakusa has long been known as ‘Shitamachi’, low city of Tokyo where the city’s merchants and artisans have lived for a long time since Edo period;17th to 19th centuries. It has a big temple complex, and is as crowded as in the old days, though the giant tower there was replaced by a huge Tokyo Sky Tree build on the opposite side of Sumida River.

Riding on the train, we’ll head for Ginza next, after a short visit to Kabukiza theatre.  Ginza is one of the most famous shopping districts in the world. It is the home to old stately stores, and constantly claims the highest land prices in Japan for more than 30 years.

We will then walk toward Shimbashi station, the birthplace of Japan’s railways.

Riding on the train, we’ll go back to your hotel.

“ Good memories ”

I appreciate the kindness to pick me up although hotel is a little far from downtown. I enjoyed conversation with Ai, she is an intelligent and friendly woman, she shared history of Yokohama and I enjoyed conversation walking around the beautiful seaside. Actually, purpose of this guide trip was learning something new as I wanted to hear real story and I think this trip was worth for it. Thank you for sharing and making good memories.

Ai:

Dear Youngsun Thank you for your good rating. It was nice talking with a young lady like you from Korea, which reminded me of my good old days with my Korean friend; chatting, laughing, sharing long evening with talking and studying. Sorry it took too long before we finally found a best evening view around the Minato-mirai area. Hoping you’ll have a brilliant future ahead of you. Best regards, Ai.

“ Tokyo April 2019 ”

Ai was absolutely wonderful. Very organized and easy to communicate with prior to the tour. She took us all over Tokyo to see everything that we had requested to see and do. We had such a great time and would definitely use her services again. Thank you so much!!

Ai:

Dear Kate, Thank you for your five-star rating !! It was wonderful two days I still recall when I close my eyes ー your lovely niece jumping under the full-bloom cherry blossoms, quietness at the precincts of Meiji Shrine we shared after a long walk ー actually, though, I’m worrying if you’re too exhausted to retrieve your energy because of our too much walk. Hoping I could meet your beautiful family again someday, somewhere. Best regards, Ai.

“ Awesome day in Hakone ”

We had a great day to see Fuji and enjoyed Hakone sightseeing. Ai planned an excellent day for the 3 of us finishing up with a wonderful Yakatori lunch.

Ai:

Hi Ralph, Thank you for your topmost rating! I really thank you for letting me have a wonderful time with you again in Hakone. Actually I never had a better view of Mt. Fuji than this time. Oh yes, Yakitori at the end of our trip was as good as Mt. Fuji. Best regards, Ai

“ A wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Ai met my husband and I at the cruise terminal in Yokohama. Ai listened to our interests and planned a wonderful day in and around Tokyo. We experienced so much more than would be possible on our own or on a tour. She was interesting and happy to adjust plans according to our interest. It was like having a friend take us out for the day. Thank you Ai!

Ai:

Dear Lauren, Thank you for your grading!! The happy moments we happened to share--walking along the farmers' market along the street near the port, picking up "the best fortune" at the shrine, pleasant short ride on Shinkansen, etc.-- will remain my unforgettable memories with you. Hoping you'd visit Onsen in Hakone next time you come to Japan. Take care! Best regards, Ai.

“ Great visit to Hakone ”

Ai was great. She was easy going and flexible with our group of adults and children (70+ years old and 3-10 year olds). She kept things fun, light and interesting and had things planned out very well so we really made the most of the 1 day we had touring Hakone and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend Ai as a tour guide!

Ai:

Dear Abby, Thank you for your super-high grading! I’m very happy and relieved to know you liked my Hakone Tour. (Actually I was worrying if it did not satisfy your expectation, for you're from a beautiful State of the US and had visited many gorgeous places around the world.) Please tell my best regards to all of your wonderful family! Hoping to see you some day again, Ai.
