What to Expect

Visiting today's most charming spots in Tokyo, feel the beat of this attractive city with a local private guide..

Pick up either Tsukiji fish market for professional buyers or Sumo training house morning session.
Additionally, through Tokyo's meticulously organized train/subway system, we will cover today's hot spots: Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ueno/Yanaka or Akihabara district.
If Tsukiji and Sumo are out of your interest, some other tourist spots can be substituted. I can adjust visiting spots according to your group's specific interest
Tsukiji fish inner market is not the tuna auction, and is closed on Sundays, Wednesdays or holidays. They are not open to public until 10am. No photo taking allowed.
Sumo training house availability depends on their schedule. Minimum 4 day prior notice is required. Also, patronage finance of 3000jpy per PERSON is asked by the training house..

Tsukiji and Sumo can not be arranged on the same day. Either spot requires minimum1.5 hours in total(arrive/leave) so we might have to skip some spots described above.

“ Great Tour with a Local ”

Arti provided much in depth information for first timers taking the train from Tokyo which made it easy for us to purchase the right tickets and meet him at the meeting point. During the tour, he shared history and was quick to answer any questions we had. Touring with a local was an excellent experience, so different from the standard group tours and Arti brought us to shop from the source rather than souvenir shops. We totally enjoyed the tour with Arti and highly recommend him!

Thank you Dixie san and Gen san for your favorable commets. I also enjoyed our tour and sharing the thoughts with you two. I will make my maximum efforts to make my tour even better.
