What to Expect

Please select some places to go from the list below. Refer to the pictures of the place with corresponding number by clicking the left window. If you can’t select the places, just tell me what kind of places you want to go and what kind of activities you want to try and enjoy. I will propose a special itinerary for you.

1. Asakusa area
1.1 Semsoji temple and Nakamise-Dori ; This temple is Tokyo's oldest and most popular temple with a big gate and 5 story pagoda. Nakamise-Dori is a pedestrian street leading to the temple lined with many traditional shops and souvenir stands.

1.2 Kappabashi Dougugai ; Kappabashi is a place full of restaurant supply stores. Each store has its own specialty ; dishes, furniture, aprons and hats, baking utensils, cooking utensils, lanterns and super-real plastic display food.


2. Tokyo Sky Tree (Admission fee : Weekday 3,100JPY, Holiday 3,400JPY) ; It’s the tallest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world (634m ). Its higher observation room is at the height of 450m. I can wait at the bottom of the tower, if you think 3,090JPY for the guide is too much.


3. Tsukiji area
3.1 Fish market ; The outer market, a retail shop area, remains at Tsukiji, even though the inner market, that is an auction and wholesale area, has moved to Toyosu. You can enjoy fresh sushi there. Basically, it’s close on Wednesday, Sunday and national holiday.

3.2 Honganji temple ; This temple is one of the biggest temples in Japan and its main hall is a modern building not like a traditional temple.

3.3 Hamarikyu garden (Admission fee : 300JPY) ; This garden is a typical Daimyo(Japanese feudal lord) garden in the Edo period with a tidal pond and two wild-duck hunting sites


4. Shinjuku area
4.1 Shinjuku Gyoen national Park (Admission fee : 500JPY) ; It is considered one of the most important parks of the Meiji Era. It's wonderful for strolling because of the variety of its planed gardens; styles range from French and English to Japanese traditional.

4.2 Observation room of Tokyo metropolitan city hall ; You can have a sky view of Tokyo at the height of 202m. It’s not as tall as the Sky Tree, but free of charge.

4.3 Samurai museum (Admission fee : 1,900JPY) ; The beauty of samurai spirit is shown in Japanese swords and their costumes. You can see what samurai spirit is and feel their spirits still living in today’s Japanese people. As there are good guides in this museum, you don’t need to pay my admission fee.

4.4 Robot restaurant (Admission fee : 8,000JPY) ; If you want to see the robot restaurant crazy show, I will bring you there and finish the tour. Because the show time is evening and night.


5. Harajuku area
5.1 Meiji Jingu shrine (Admission Free, Japanese garden : 500JPY) ; This is Tokyo's most venerable Shinto shrine, opened in 1920 in honor of Emperor and Empress Meiji. It has two big Torii, a traditional gate of shrines.

5.2 Takeshita dori (Shopping street) ; This street is the center of Japanese Kawaii (Cute) fashion and very popular with young girls.

5.3 Ota Memorial Museum of Art (Admission fee : 700JPY) ; Ukiyoe is a Japanese traditional wood-block printing developed during the Edo period. It affected impressionist artists in Europe like Gogh and Monet.


6. Shibuya area
6.1 Shibuya scramble crossing ; This is one of the most popular sightseeing spot for foreigners. Check Japanese people’s behaviors here.

6.2 Depachika (the food section in a department store basement) ; It carries many kinds of food from prepared delicacies to delicious imported confectioneries.

6.3 Samurai Armor Photo Studio (Option 13,000JPY) ; You can wear Samurai Armor and take photos ( 2 poses / 10 shots). Reservation is required. Of course, you don’t need to pay for the guide.


7. Akihabara ; Akihabara has two faces. The first one is electronics shops town and the other one is the center of Otaku culture. Otaku is a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime fandom. There are so many amine goods shops here and a maid café is one of the symbols of Otaku culture.


8. Ueno area
8.1 Ueno Park ; It's a cultural mecca with a number of museums including the prestigious Tokyo National Museum and the delightful Shitamachi Museum with its displays of old Toyko, Ueno Zoo and so on.

8.2 Ameyoko (Shopping Street) ; This street is crowded with stores offering clothes, fresh fish, dried food and so on.

“ Our Guide to Fujiyama ”

Hideaki was a stellar guide from the very beginning as he helped us organize the lengthy transportation towards Mount Fuji. To each site that we stopped and each meal we had he never stopped being respectful and supportive to our experience. Hideaki was easy to talk to and a great person to spend our final day in Tokyo with. He was a wonderful guide.

Hideaki:

Jeffrey-san. Thank you very much for your review. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. I think we enjoyed a peaceful time at the Mt. Fuji viewing spots, even though we, unfortunately, were not able to see a full view of Mt. Fuji. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

Hideaki:

Paola-san. Thank you very much for your review. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. We enjoyed a peaceful time at the Open Air Museum. Especially, at the foot bath. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ Great trip to Nikko and excellent guide ”

Hideaki was an excellent guide with a very good english and he have a good knowledge of Nikko. He also answered to my questions about the japanese culture and religion. Also a good advice for a restaurant whith excellent sushi and sashimi. So I recomment Hideaki. When i booked my trip to Japan, i ignored the 1st week of may is known as the Golden Week where administrations are closed and where most japanese are on vacations so it means this week, all tourist attractions are crowded and next time i will avoid that specific week

Hideaki:

Christine-san. Thank you very much for your review. I hope you enjoyed the Nikko tour. I also had a good time chatting with you. Normally in Japan, we have one-week holiday three times a year. From the end of April to the beginning of May. Mid of August. From the end of December to the beginning of January. Almost all sightseeing spots are super crowded. Honestly speaking, I recommend you to avoid a tip in Japan during these days. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ Fabulous Day ”

I would highly recommend Mr. Hideaki was very accommodating in going to were I was wanting to see. He responded very promptly before we booked and also after booking. Very organized and planned out our day and went over it with me ahead of time, no surprises. The tea testing was great and very informative. I highly recommend it. We like to eat at local places and the lunch was really good. If you want flavored kitkats be sure and have him take you to Don Quijote oh so many flavors. Thank you for a great day!!

Hideaki:

Barbara-san. Thank you very much for your review. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I also had a good time talking with you and you husband. Yes. The tea tasting workshop was great, and I learned a lot about Japanese tea. Please enjoy KitKat party when you go back to your country. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ One day at Nikko ”

It was good trip overall. Hideaki was very helpful and kind. Thanks for buying the train tickets early. And the best thing is we get to see a bit of snow here and there.

Hideaki:
