What to Expect

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.

Hello, I'm Yoko. I was born and brought up in Ashikaga, Tochigi prefecture (80 km north from Tokyo) and I've lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years.
I love traveling, both overseas and inside Japan. After I visited other countries and saw many local cultures there, I realized that Japan has a variety of unique cultures with a lot of tourist attractions.
I hope you enjoy your stay in Japan. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

“ Excellent guide on short notice ”

I booked Yoko on a short 1 day notice and she was very prompt to reply. After explaining everything we wanted to do, she gave me some suggestions on where to go. After we started the trip with Yoko we changed what we wanted to do. Yoko promptly changed our route and got us to where we wanted. She was very good at helping out and very pleasant to speak with.

“ Guide and friend ”

Yoko is always smiling and she engaged our whole family including our 3 boys ages 4,6, and 8. She made us feel like we were being guided by a friend. She speaks excellent English and is eager to find answers for every question you may have. She used her iPad to give us details for things we wanted to do on other days. We enjoyed her guidance as we toured temple, shopping and learned how to use the trains. Her recommendation for lunch was great We will remember her warmly.

“ Beautiful introduction to Tokyo ”

We had the great pleasure of having Yoko-san as our guide for a half day tour on the morning of our arrival in Tokyo. She showed us some beautiful places, taught us some wonderful things about Japanese history and culture and took us to the most incredible ramen-ya for lunch. What a wonderful beginning to our adventure in Japan. Thank-you Yoko-san, you are a treasure 🙏🏻🇯🇵❤️

“ Visit to Kamakura ”

I had booked a trip to Kamakura for 3 people and I ended up getting sick last minute. Yoko took my elderly parents who are in their 70s to Kamakura on her own and treated them so kindly and slowed down the pace of the tour for them. Was so glad that we had Yoko as a guide!

“ 1 Fantastic Day (8 Hour Tour of Tokyo) with Yoko ”

Yoko is very well educated about Tokyo and very efficient in her travels around the city. I would not hesitate to have her custom tailor an itinerary and have her help with navigation and information. She is super friendly and professional! Thank you, Yoko!
