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.

“ KIAPA, Japan experience 2018 ”

Hideo is a good Guide with a lot of experience but for a small group not for a big group of tourists. His efforts and patience to organized my group was tumbs up but he needs more improvement in the future. He need to make a better plan as to check the location before visited if their open or closed for the visitors the day before so we could not worsted our time. Overall Hideo is good, our groups said thank you for Hideo.

Hideo:

Dear Andy One day before the tour, the typhoon No.21 (the strongest one this year) hit Japan and I couldn't see the spot closed or opened in the Net, so I deeply appologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for joining my tour. I pray for your KIAPA's prosperity. Best, HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Passionate + Knowledgable ”

Hideo was a very passionate tour guide that was knowledgable and able to explain well. He was also very patient with me and my family, despite all the hiccups that we had. He assisted us well in buying the tickets and arranging the transportation. It was very helpful so you wouldn't feel overwhelmed by where and how to do stuffs. He made sure that we fit the time schedule and altered them when it was necessary. ありがとう Hideo-san!

Hideo:

Hi Gerrie I'm very happy to receive your review. From the port of Kobe to Kyoto, it was a bit hard schedule but I'm sure you could enjoy visiting Arashiyama Bamboo Forest and Fushimi Inari Taisha by a private taxi. My best wishes for you and your family, especially your parents. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Gerrie.

“ 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!

Hideo:

I'm very happy to receive your polite review. After visiting Himeji Castle, we could enjoy flowers in Kokoen Garden. I'm sure you could enjoy seeing Jinbei same shark and other mairne animals in Osaka Aquarium called "Kaiyukan" and Sky Walkway at Umeda Sky Building. I wish all of your family for health and seccess. I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you, Keshav.
