Chofu is located to the west of Tokyo, in a suburban area. Though the city is quite accessible from metropolitan area of Tokyo, it has many attractive spots with full of nature.
I'll meet you at Chofu station. It takes 20 minutes if you take Keio-line from Shinjuku station.
First we’ll go to local old shrine, Fudaten shrine. It is located in a residential area, but surrounded by many trees. I’m sure you can feel the serenity inside the precincts.
After that, we’ll walk to the Nogawa river. Along the river you can enjoy a lovely scenery especially in early April, when cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
Then we’ll go to Jindaiji temple, the second oldest temple in Tokyo. The area is surrounded by nature, and the area is famous for many soba restaurants.
After visiting Jindaiji temple, let’s enjoy soba lunch.
If you are interested in seeing flowers and trees, then I can guide you in the Jindai Botanical Garden, which is close to Jindaiji temple, extending by 1 hour.
Jindai Botanical Garden has many flowers and trees, famous for its variety of roses. In May and October, you can see a lot of beautiful roses in the garden.
And also the garden is recommended in autumn, when the colors of many leaves turn to be red and yellow. It’s really beautiful.
Total walking time of this tour is for about 1 hour (From Chofu station to the final destination, Jindaiji temple).
If you are tired after strolling, then you can take a bus on your return from Jindaiji temple to Chofu station.
But if you’d like to walk, then let’s go back to Chofu station on foot. It takes about 30 minutes.
I believe you will be refreshed and comfortable.

|Hotel pick up in Tokyo area.||30.45 USD|
Yoko was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She covered a lot of the important sights in Tokyo but didn't make it feel rushed. Tokyo can be overwhelming for the first-timer but Yoko helped us navigate very easily. She also helped us with shopping at the end of the busy day as a lot of the department store employees don't speak English. She helped us with ticket reservations for the rest of the trip too! All in all it was a very good experience and would recommend her for other first-timers!!
We spent the afternoon of our first day in Tokyo with Yoko in the lead. She guided us through the use of the subway system and provided us with a less complicated map so that we could easily see where we were going. Our first stop was the amazing Hama-rikyu Gardens. Yoko prompted us to take part in the tea ceremony at the Tea House in the center of the gardens which we enjoyed partaking in the special tea that they offer. This was a wonderful start to the rest of our time with her. We would highly recommend her as a guide. Her English was quite good and her knowledge of the sites was very informative.
Goodday , We would like to express our thanks to Yoko who was an amazing tour guide, as first timers to Japan we were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. She was very informative & helpful. We had a clear understanding of every place she showed us and would highly recommend her, we will definatley be back.
Yoko met us on time at the cruise port. We walked to the train station and took two trains and a bus to the first temple in Kamakura. Yoko mentioned an option to have green tea here which was a lovely experience among a giant bamboo forest. Then we walked down a very busy shopping street and enjoyed a nice lunch (Yoko helped us find something we liked on the menu). Another bus took us to see the Big Budha; Yoko showed us how to do the cleansing ritual as we entered. We returned on the bus to the train station, then one train to the Yokohama train station and a taxi back to the ship. There was a lot of time spent traveling on the trains and buses, but those trips were nearly as much fun as seeing the Karakura sites. We returned full of the sites and sounds of a lively city and peaceful temples. Thanks Yoko for 7 wonderful hours we will long remember!
She is kind and caring. Always wants to make sure that the guests are taken care of. Speaks good English
