Que esperar de este tour

In Tokyo, there are so many attractive places where you can have a great time of the day.
I selected four most popular touring spots; Tsukiji, Imperial palace, Asakusa and Akihabara. It's very good tour, especially if this will be your first time visit in Tokyo!
Also there is "Popular spots in the west side of Tokyo" tour on my page. You can cover most of all must-see spots in Tokyo!!

Tsukiji Fish Market is one of the top tourist district destination in Tokyo! It consists of two main areas-the inner market and the outer market. Tokyo governor decided to relocate the inner market to Toyosu new market in October,2018. (visiting the inner market will not be included in our itinerary from October 2018)It might be your first and last chance to visit there! We will go to both places. The inner market is the wholesale market for the professionals where about 480 kinds of marine products are traded. You can have a close look at various kinds of fish and shellfish like tuna, eel, octopus, sea urchin and more! There are about 550 small family-run retail shops in the inner market, each shop has own specialty selling foods like tuna, eel and so on. So you can enjoy seeing from many different things not only merchandises but also workers, shops, and the human interactions in Tsukiji. Inside the market, intricate narrow streets are like a maze but I'll take you anywhere you're interested in safely.
In the outer market, there are about 400 retail shops which are open to the public. Almost all kinds of Japanese ingredients can be found here.
This is like a kitchen of Japanese cuisine. You can buy Japanese food, seasonings,tea, knives, dishware wrapping goods and so on. Of course you can taste and eat fresh seafood here.

We'll visit the East Garden of the Imperial Palace.(Monday and Friday are closed. Instead, we will visit Nijyubashi bridge of the Imperial Palace) We will visit two main spots such as the main tower of the former Edo castle and the Ninomaru Garden. Many kinds of seasonal flowers and plants are planted. You can enjoy the scenery all year around. It's very a beautiful Japanese garden.

Next, we'll go to Asakusa. It remains the old atmosphere of the Edo era and it's a very vivid town. On the way to Sensoji temple, we can enjoy shopping at Nakamise shopping street. It's very fun to see so many kinds of traditional crafts, sweets and souvenirs. Sweets like a small pancake stuffed with red bean paste, deep-fried buns stuffed with different kinds of pastes and rice crackers are famous in Asakusa.
There are many kinds of restaurants such as Tempura, Soba, Udon, Tonkatsu, Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake), Sukiyaki, grilled eel rice bowl, Sushi, Hamburg, pasta, and so on. If you'd like to eat at a local tavern in the Hoppy street, definitely it is better to have a tour guide with you. Let's eat your favorite authentic Japanese food in Asakusa!

Our last destination is Akihabara. If you're interested, we can have a break at a maid cafe. Girls who are wearing maid costumes will welcome you as their master politely. You can order food and drinks and can take a photo with the maid (you need to pay extra charge). Customers can also enjoy chatting with them before the order is being served.
Akihabara is well known for shopping as well. I can take you anywhere you are interested in such as Don Quijote, Gacyapon(capsule toy) shops, anime figure doll shops, comic stores, and electronics shops.


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!

Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a six years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.

Thank you, Arigatou!

“ Excellent Guide for families ”

Yukiko made excellent suggestions for places for us to visit with our 2 boys (age 13 and 7). We visited Tsukiji market, Honda Welcome centre, Samaurai Museum, Ninja Trick House and the shops of Tokyo Station. She was very helpful in showing us how to navigate Tokyo using the train system and made us feel very welcome. On our return visit we would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to anyone who wanted a guide to help them navigate Tokyo and see things you may not ordinarily see. Mervin M

“ Yukiko knows Tokyo - culturally, historically... all of it! ”

If you want a personalized tour of Tokyo take one with Yukiko! She’s knowledgeable and well prepared for your interest. We enjoyed her company and were thrilled with all the sights we could visit. There wasn’t a question she could not answer.

“ Excellent tour guide for families ”

Yukiko was a wonderful person to tour Tokyo with. She is easy to have a conversation with while walking around; more like touring the city with a friend, not someone you're just meeting for the first time. Yukiko recommended the right mix of sites to interest my husband and I as well as our 7 year old (the ninja experience was a hit and he can't stop talking about it). She was very prepared and gave us brief background history on the various sites we visited, which we really appreciated. I highly recommend a tour with Yukiko.

“ Great guide ”

Yukiko was a wonderful guide who worked with us to personalize our tour. We were in Tokyo for 5 days and hired her for the first 2 days. Without her, there certainly would have been places/events we would have missed. And she was very good in giving us specific recommendations for the best shops for food items we were interested in. My elderly parents were traveling with us and Yukiko was very attentive. The main thing we found in having Yukiko with us is that she greatly removed any of the stress of navigating Tokyo. We found having her with us just made the days so much easier and pleasant. Would definitely recommend her to anyone traveling to Tokyo.

“ Awesome guide!! ”

The reviews don’t to justice when it comes to Kukiko. She is very knowledgeable, flexible with changes, and always had smile on her face. Even durIng transit between locations she took time to teach origami. She also found great reataurant for lunch to accommodate couple vegetarians in our group. All of us in our group enjoyed touring with Yukiko and we would tour again next time we visit.
