Sometimes the chosen places are far apart but I will arrange them in time.

The followings are my favorites but you can request other places too:
(Note: Please take a look at the pictures below, they are in the corresponding order.)

Important

Also available on National holidays, summer vacation days, and other days, please ask me.

Please ask me the availability of this tour before you book it.
The wholesale area of Tsukiji will move to Toyosu on October 11th, 2018 but its outer market will stay at Tsukiji where we can enjoy good sushi and delicious Japanese foods.
I have a one day tour to Kyoto from Tokyo, but you have to pay the cost of about 30,000 JPY per person for the transportation of you and me.

This tour is limited version of the full day version under the same name.
Those who not accustomed to walk a long distance or don't have enough time may take this tour to save cost.
East garden of Imperial palace will be closed on Monday and Friday.
Most of shops and restaurant in Tsukiji will be closed on Sunday and Wednesday.
The wholesale market of Tsukiji opens to public from 11:00AM but there are not much fish to see at that time, so I recommed to visit the outer market only.

“ Mount fuji ”

Good. Yuki is considerate (looking for elevators aside from escalators) since we were 2 senior couples finding it difficult to walk fast and not used to long walks inside the complicated railways.

Yuki:

Dear Lourds, Thank you for taking my tours for three days. I hope you enjoyed traveling Japan. Sorry for missing Mt. Fuji, I tried my best to let you see it. We had a great view of the mountain next day. Please give my best regards to your husband and friends. Best regards, Yuki
