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.

“ Yuki is Amazing! ”

Hello Everyone! If you are doing a day tour, Yuki is the best and highly recommended! He gives you historical background of every place we went to and took us shopping to the cheapest places! We will get him again when we come back to Japan for a visit! Thanks Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Robelyn, Thank you for writing a review of my tour of Tokyo. I was very happy when your family listens to my explanation of each site and gave me questions about our country and people. My tour is very flexible to reflect the interests of the guest so I changed my route to take you to my favorite ramen shop and added Ameyoko discount streets where you bought so many Japanese sweets. I hope your family has enjoyed traveling Japan. Best regards, Yuki

“ Wonderful Day in Kyoto ”

My 11 year old son and I began our trip in Tokyo with Yuki-san. We started the day taking the shinkansen out of Shinagawa Station and taking the local train once in Kyoto to the Fushimi Shrine. We did the Miyabi Tour. We followed the course and had lunch at a delicious tonkatsu restaurant that Yuki-san found for us because of my picky 11 year old eater. The most memorable site for us was the Kinkaku Temple late afternoon. The sunset hit the temple just right and it shone in its beautiful gold color. We were back in Tokyo by 8 p.m. Originally, I thought the 12 hour trip would be too much for my son. Not at all. Time flew by and we were not tired, one bit. My son said, "I want to take another tour with Yuki-san when we come back to Japan". I agree, I highly recommend h... read more

Yuki:

Dear Miho, Thank you very much for writing such a specific review of my tour. It was my pleasure to guide you and your son to Kyoto when it is not so crowded. The day was very fine and mild in the last week of December but it snowed on the next day. Sorry for the walk to find the Tonkatsu restaurant, its entrance was very different from what I expected. I will look for your visit of Japan again. Yuki

“ Toyko day tour ”

Great guide who did all he could to show us this beautiful city under less than optimal conditions. He was keenly aware of how tired we were after traveling the day before from the US.

Yuki:

Dear Neal, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. I was glad that your wife could eat Udon without soup. Best regards, Yuki

Thank you for the last minute changes you made to our itinerary in order to ensure our 3 yr old enjoyed the tour as much we did! The photos from all of our stops are beautiful. We had a wonderful time and we really appreciate your help in getting around town stress free. Lunch was also delicious- thank you for the recommendation!

Yuki:

Dear Lalaine, Thank you for the review. I was very glad to see your daughter became happy at the toy street near Tokyo station. I want everyone to be happy during my tour and enjoy good foods to make good memories of Japan. Best regards, Yuki
