What to Expect

I would like to take you to Sensoji Temple, Tokyo Sky Tree, Imperial Palace and Ginza.

Sensoji temple is Tokyo's oldest and largest one with a history dating back to 628. Kaminarimon, or "Thunder Gate," the outer gate of the temple is very famous as a landmark of Asakusa for its huge red lantern. It's colorful Nakamise, shopping arcade associated with Edo Period, is a pededtrian lane leading to the temple and lined with traditional shops and souvenir stands. It's the best place to buy your gifts and souvenirs as well. It is a very picturesque and traditional spot with a lot of Japanese atmosphere that should not be missed during a visit to Tokyo.

Tokyo Sky Tree was open on May 22, 2012 as the world's tallest self-supporting communication tower with a height of 634 meters. This new landmark tower is used mainly for terrestrial digital broascasting through the complete transition from analog to digital TV in Japan. The newly constructed tower also boasts two public observatories at 350 and 450 meters that command a panoramic view of traditional downtown Tokyo. The tower makes the area a thriving hub of international tourism along with Sensoji Temple.

The Imperial Palace is formerly known as the Edo Castle, the stronghold of Tokugawa Shogunate. This Palace has been the residence of Japan's Emperor since the Meiji Restoration in 1868. The palace with a compound of a litlle over 1 million square meters consists of the main Palace, the residence of Emperor and Empress, and Higashi-Gyoen or the East Garden. Everyone can go to outer Garden where you can see the elegant Nijyuubashi with its double arched stone bridge across the moat.

Ginza or literally "Silver mint", has high end stores and boutiques. After a big fire in 1872, Ginza has become one of the leading shopping streets thanks to modernization efforts. There are lineups from high-class brand stores such as Chanel and Gucci to fast fashion stores such as Uniqlo and Forever 21, as well as accessory shops. When you visit Kabukiza tower, you can have an experience the world of Kabuki even on days without performance.

Let's enjoy the tour of Tokyo.

Thank you.

“ Very informative, caring and punctual ”

My family and I had a wonderful 3-days with Hideo in the Osaka area. I had let Hideo know of what I'd like to see based on some reading and he showed me all those sights and added more which were very worth visiting. He is a remarkably energetic man coping very well with the record heat of July 2018 the whole time we were with him. He explained the history and culture very well and helped us greatly with our dietary and other needs. He also helped us purchase onward Shinkansen tickets to Tokyo and explained very well and patiently how to get to the train in Osaka station. You may have to get used to his accent but once you do, he is a charm to listen to. I would definitely take Hideo's guiding again. Thanks Hideo for making our visit so memorable!

“ Day trip in Kyoto ”

We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!

“ Good tours ”

We had two Hideo tours in Kyoto and one in Osaka. Hideo was well prepared for the tours with maps, tickets and printed tour plants. He coomunicated with me prior to the tours and put together these tours based on my requests. He navigated through paublic transportation system very well. His english is not perfect and sometimes it was difficult to understand him, but we gor buy OK. We wanted local cultural experience and got it.
