Overview

This tour is designed for visitors who is the first time to Tokyo. I pick-up 3 places to visit; Imperial palace, Meiji-Shrine, Asakusa. They are the popular places for tourist from abroad. But if you have any specific place to visit, please feel free to tell me. I will try to arrange the tour for you.

What to Expect

In this tour, we will visit 3 major places, the first place is Asakusa which is listed as No1 places among tourists. There is a big temple named "Senso-ji" and many souvenir shops on both side of a street to the temple. Also, you can enjoy Japanese cuisine in this area. The second place is Imperial palace east garden. You can not enter the palace but this east garden of Imperial Palace was center of Edo castle during Edo era( 1603-1868).Therefore in this garden you will see some relics of the castle. The last place is Meiji Shrine. This shrine is one of the most famous shrines in Japan. It was built in 1920 to enshrine Emperor Meiji. To reach to the Shrine, you have to walk in forest and you may forget you are in Tokyo because of silence. By visiting those 3 places you can see and feel Tokyo.

“ Three excellent tours with a very well informed guide ”

We spent three fantastic days with Hiroshi exploring contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and visiting Hakone. He was a well informed, interesting and engaging guide who was happy to answer all our random questions about life in Japan. Hiroshi was very organised and made sure that we saw lots of different places in the days we spent with him. He was also invaluable in the run up to the trip, giving us advice on money, travel arrangements and places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hiroshi as a guide.

Hiroshi:

Dear Sarah Thank you very much for your great review. I am very happy to find you spent good time with me. It was my first time to have a kid as my customer. The happiest thing for me was to see Pat's smile in any places. I hope my guiding supported him to know about Japan as well as you. Please make another chance to visit Japan and to meet again.

“ Perfect Day in Tokyo ”

Hiroshi outlined a plan for a day in Tokyo along the lines of our suggestions. He managed this perfectly and kept to the plan admirably. He was sensitive to our personal needs as well as answering all our questions in depth and with good humour. His English was excellent to the point that we did not notice he was Japanese. Hiroshi’s knowledge of Japanese history was first class, right through the Shogun era and modern times. We would commend him to you as a great guide with complete confidence. Martin and Robyn Johnson Sydney, Australia

Hiroshi:

Dear Martin and Robyn I am very happy to find you enjoyed a day in Tokyo with me. And thank you very much for very positive review about my guideing. If you have another chance to come to Japan, I am very please to spend time with you. Hope you will have great time in Australia. Best regards Hiroshi
