What to Expect

In Tokyo, there are so many attractive places where you can have a great time of the day.
I selected five most popular touring spots in the west side of Tokyo; Meiji Jingu Shrine, Harajyuku, Omotesando, Shibuya and Shinjyuku.
It's very good tour focusing on the location, you can save your time and energy. I recommend this tour, especially if this will be your first time visit in Tokyo!
Also there is "Popular spots in the East side of Tokyo" tour on my page. You can cover most of all must-see spots in Tokyo!!


At first, we'll visit Meiji Jingu shrine which has rich culture and history and is about 100 years old now. It was built to commemorate the Emperor Meiji and the Empress Shoken in 1912. As it's located inside of the large forest, you can feel the peaceful atmosphere. It's a very popular Shrine in Tokyo. More than 3 million people visit here during the first three days of the New Year. The contrast between the outside world and inside of Meiji shrine is unique and interesting, feeling like the new and the old coexist in this area.

Then we'll visit Harajyuku(Takeshita street). It is known as the latest fashion trend area, especially for teenagers and it is famous for cos-players who are dressed in costumes. There are a big 100 yen shop, photo sticker machines, pet clothes shops, crepe shops and many casual fashion shops in this area.

Omotesando is the finest fashion area. The main street of Omotesando is called the Champs Elysees in Tokyo. There are many luxurious shops, KIDDY LAND (Toy & animation shop), Oriental bazaar (souvenir shop), Ukiyoe museum and nice cafes & restaurants.

Then next is Shibuya. It is known as one of the busiest districts such as the famous scramble crossing. Let's see a flock of people and across the street without bumping them! We'll stop by the statue of dog called Hachi and other interesting spots in Shibuya and shops!

Our last visiting Spot is Shinjyuku. It's the one of the busiest area and has more than 50 exits of Shinjyuku station! No worry, I will guide this area especially east side of Shinjyuku, so you won't get lost. It's vast area, so I can suggest which area would be good for you depends on your interest.

If you have any questions and requests, please feel free to ask me. I'll reply you as soon as possible.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one. I'm really looking forward to meeting you in my tour!
Thank you, Arigatou!

“ Greatest experience ”

I couldn’t ask for better guide. My first time in Tokyo and had a great n valuable time. Use a scooter to move around and she helped all the time. I learned a lot she is very knowledgeable and very respectful. She takes you where you wish to go and creates wonderful itinerary

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for choosing me as your guide for your trip, Nicole! I appreciated your heartfelt review and taking your time to write it. I understand that it was a challenging to move around using scooter in Tokyo, especially we used public transportation such as subway and train all the time. However, we could felt people's hospitality and kindness at each station, restaurants and shops. When we used Shibuya station, three station stuff helped us to make a way on the platform and supported to ride on a train, I thought it was very kind. I'm so pleased to hear that you had a great time in the tour. I know that well preparation and consideration are very much important for mobile challenged clients. I definitely would be happy to be your guide in other cities for your next trip to Jap... read more

“ Total star ”

We booked Yukiko months ahead of our trip and we had lots of contact before meeting her. When we met her, she was even lovelier as our contact had us believe. She gave us so much information about basic day to day Japanese life, Japanese history, where and what to eat and all about how to ride the trains (which advice is gold dust for any traveller). All this was given in excellent English. We visited Temples, markets and palace gardens. Yukiko even phoned a shop for us as we needed to purchase a plug. Yukiko went above and beyond for us, we will always remember and look back on our time with smiles on our faces. Throughout our time together, Yukiko was helpful, funny and so very charming.....a total joy. She even had a little present for us at the end. We can not recommend Yukiko highl... read more

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for taking your time to write such a wonderful review, Debbie! I'm so pleased to hear that you satisfied the tour and it became a meaningful and enjoyable time. I felt the tour time past so fast. It was so fun to talk about similarity and difference between your country and my country. Hope to see you again in the future. Enjoy the rest of your days in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ An afternoon with Yukiko ”

What a wonderful afternoon we had with Yukiko - she arrived early in her beautiful kimono and wow we did so much in an afternoon - she was very caring with fans for us all as it was very very hot. Showing us how to use the subway was wonderful as we were then able to manage this for the rest of our time in Tokyo. Her knowlwdge of the history of Tokyo was shared with us so readily. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and glad she was available for us as we would certainly recommend her services as a wonderful guide. Thankyou

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Cecily! It was a lovely meeting all of you. I am glad that the orientation helped you on your free day and enjoyed the tour. Hope you will have memorable days in other countries as well. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
