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.

“ A great tour that was tailored very well for us, and the best sushi meal ever! ”

Yuki was very knowledgable and great at helping us navigate the fish market, explaining what everything meant and how things work here in Japan, and lots about the history of the place and the culture. Highly recommend a tour with him. He also took us to an incredible restaurant for lunch, which we'd never have found on our own. The quality of the sushi we ate was extremely high, and good value for what it was.

Yuki:

Dear Charlotte, Thank you for writing the review of my tour. It was a short tour, but I am grad you have enjoyed it. Best regards, Yuki

“ Excellent 1 day tour of Tokyo with knowledgable and lovely Yuki ”

Yuki was a great tour guide. He met us at our hotel and took us to the Meiji shrine, grand palace and Senso-ji as we wanted to see the highlights in our short time in Tokyo. As well as being informative about the places we visited he gave us hints and tips for our stay in japan, including navigating the subway system and how to activate our JR passes. He also took us to his favourite Ramen bar for lunch, which was fantastic, and introduced us to the impressive green tea ice cream shop (7 different versions based on tea strength - only the brave go for level 7). All in all a great day and wonderful introduction to Tokyo and Japan. Thank you Yuki! Susanne & David

Yuki:

Dear David, Thank you very much for writing the review of my tour in the middle of your travel. The weather is very nice and you were very lucky to see the wedding ceremony in the shrine. I am very glad you liked the Ramen retaurant and the ice cream shop. Food is a very important part of my tour and I like to find good places for lunch. Please give my best regards to your wife Susan.

“ 2-day Trip from Tokyo to Kyoto ”

My family and I really enjoyed our 2-day tour from Kyoto to Tokyo with Yuki -- and would definitely encourage others to consider this tour! Yuki made our experiences both extremely memorable and enjoyable, and he definitely created an awesome itinerary that showcased all of the highlights of Kyoto. From the get-go, he was very flexible and willing to tailor the tour to our particular interests, and he had very good ideas for exposing us to the Japanese culture. Upon our inquiry, he was even flexible enough to extend his usual one-day Kyoto itinerary to an overnight two-day itinerary, which was highly worth the additional cost. We were able to see everything on our list in an extremely short amount of time - from shrines and temples to beautiful Japanese gardens, the bamboo forest, and ev... read more

Yuki:

Dear Kristen, Thank you for writing such an elaborate review of my tour. It was the best tour to Kyoto for me too. You are very generous to join me the Maiko show and Kyoto dinner near Gion. Based on this great experience, I made a two day door to door tour from Tokyo to Kyoto. Please give my best regards, to your family, too. Yuki
