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.

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more

“ Well prepared , knowledgable, and charming guide! ”

We were fortunate to have Hideo show us around the key sights of Kyoto. He organised the day very well to meet our requests , took us to a great lunch venue, and provided some great insights into everything we saw. Hideo has a pleasant and kindly manner and we appreciated his well structured tour. He also provided excellent tips for self touring on other days. Well done to Hideo!

“ Hideo a wonderful guide! ”

Our Osaka trip with Hideo was awesome! He was very knowledgable and interesting. He worked with us to visit the sights we wanted, and also included some of his own, which made it great. He recommended a really excellent place for lunch as well. I will be recommending him to family and friends who plan a trip to Japan.

“ Great tour ”

Hideo met us at our hotel on time. He sent a message when he arrived. We were in Kyoto and the tour was in Osaka. Hideo found the shorted routes to Osaka. He lives there so he showed us the best spots to match our suggestions. We went there for food and shopping, and he showed us the best spots. Highly recommend.
