Overview

We'll stroll around the most attractive spots in Tokyo: Tsukiji, Hama-rikyu Gardens, Asakusa and Ginza.
You can enjoy Japanese delicacies from Japanese sweets to high quality dining, such as sukiyaki, tempura, eel dish or sushi. You will also feel the color of Tokyo while going down the river by waterbus. You’ll be excited to see the coexistence of old and new culture in Tokyo through this tour.

What to Expect

In the morning
1. Tsukiji Fish Market (outer market): Sushi, donburi (rice bawl dish), fresh fruit, and various set meal are available. Various kinds of Japanese kitchen knives are also popular among tourists.
2. Hama-rikyu Gardens: Originally built as the family garden of Tokugawa Shogun, this garden still attracts people as an oasis in urban center. You can enjoy powdered green tea and Japanese sweets at Nakajima-no-ochaya.
3. Waterbus from Hama-rikyu Gardens to Asakusa: Enjoy the view of very unique bridges across the Sumida River.

In the afternoon
4. Asakusa: You can learn coexistence of Buddhism and Shintoism by visiting Senso-ji Temple and Asakusa-jinja shrine. How about buying traditional Japanese souvenirs at the shopping arcade called Nakamise?
Asakusa also offers various gourmet dining. I’d recommend you have quality wa-gyu (Japanese beef) sukiyaki, beautiful tempura, or any other Japanese cuisine.
5. Ginza: Several new landmarks has emerged. You must be impressed by the state-of the art architectures in this district. The streets are lined with long established specialty shops and high-end boutiques.
Enjoy feeling the amazing combination of good-old things and the latest stuff through my tour.

“ Extatic about Tokyo and Mayumi ”

Mayumi was a wonderful and cheerful guide. She made our first day in Japan absolutely great. She took us to some of the main sights in Tokyo and listened to our request to also view some more of the everyday Japanese life. She was very efficient, showed us how to get around in Tokyo and she gave us practical advice (i.e. get a Pasmo). I would recommend that every first timer in Japan a guide on the first day, and preferably Mayumi ;-)

“ Wonderful Introduction to Japan ”

Mayumi was the ideal city guide. She picked us up at our hotel (two days in a row, each a half-day), taught us how to navigate the public transportation system, and efficiently (and enthusiastically!) took us around to see Tokyo's highlights. With minimal input from us, Mayumi devised a "best of" itinerary that included both the modern and traditional sides of Tokyo. The pace of the tour was perfect -- fast enough to squeeze in a handful of neighborhoods on each day, but casual enough to feel comfortable stopping for photos and to explore food stalls, markets, etc. Mayumi's English is outstanding and she is well versed in Japanese history. Mayumi was knowledgeable about food, history, architecture, etc., so my sense is that she would be an ideal option regardless of the particular ages or interests of the tour group. Our time in Tokyo would not have been the same without her.

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

Our group of 4 had a great time with Mayumi as our tour guide. She spoke english efficiently and is very open/flexible because since it was our first time in Tokyo we were clueless about destinations we wanted to visit. We finally came up with a game plan and Mayumi executed it perfectly! She met us at our hotel and waited patiently for us to come down since we came late (sorry Mayumi! We appreciate your patience with us). She is very knowledgeable and educated us about historical facts/culture of each place we visited. It made the destinations more memorable. There were times where we took more time at one destination then schedule, but Mayumi didn't rush us and was quick on her feet to make sure we would complete the tour as planned, which we did! I would definitely look up Mayumi again and recommend her to anyone who needs help getting around Tokyo. You will not regret it! She made our trip worth it and was very interactive with our group. We made a friend at the end of the day =). Thank you!!!

“ Mayumi was amazing! ”

Mayumi was more like a friend showing us around town. She arrived to pick us up at our hotel promptly, kept on schedule and spoke beautiful english. My daughter and I had so much fun with her and saw so much more than we could have on our own. She kept everything fresh, which is not easy when you’ve done basically the same tour many times. I couldn’t recommend Mayumi more! If you only have one splurge on your trip to Tokyo, this should be it.
