Important

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.

We will use public transportation during this tour but we can take a taxi if you want.
I can lend you an IC card for easy use of public transportation and help you to charge your deposit in it.
The wholesale area of Tsukiji Fish market will move to Tokyosu in October, 2018. It opens to public after 11:00AM until Sep. 29th, 2018 but there are not much fish to see at that time. So, I recommend to visit 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
