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 : 3,090JPY) ; 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 : 200JPY) ; 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.

8.3 Yanaka ; You can feel an old style traditional town. There are many small temples, boutiques and ateliers.

“ Beyond our expectations ”

We new we had a short day and wanted to experience Tokyo from a cultural viewpoint. He was able to accomplish that by using the subway to get to all corners of Tokyo . We visited 5 or 6 sites, walked a lot and got the feeling of Tokyo that we wanted. His recommendation for a "Tokyo" lunch fit right in. Highly recommend him to others

Hideaki:

Dick-san. Thank you very much for your review. We walked nearly 20,000 steps in one day with only lunch break! How energetic you and your wife are! I’m glad that you like Okonomiyaki. It’s my favorite food, too. I also shared a pleasant time with you and your wife. Hideaki Murayama

“ hassle free and laid back trip to Mt. Fuji ”

We thought of getting a guide because we have varying ages in our family , I have two older children and two much younger ones. If we joined a tour group we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the places at our own pace. Mr. Murayama was at our hotel very early to take us to the bus terminal, he even reserved our bus tickets ahead of time which was thoughtful. We enjoyed our hassle free trip to Fuji because of him. My children were free to stay longer at the sights if they wanted to and we were able to choose the places we wanted to see. This was our first time in Tokyo so he was also very kind in providing some information for us for the rest of our stay. Overall, he was a very pleasant and kind man. Thank you Murayama:-)

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, Arlene-san. We were so lucky that day that the sky is so clear and we were able to enjoy a full view of Mt. Fuji with a snow cap. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. Hideaki Murayama

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

My family and I had a very good tour of Tokyo with Hideaki. We were able to do many things in one day and felt like we were able to accomplish a lot during such a short time thanks to Hideaki showing us around. I definitely recommend him to others.

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, Sarah-san. We were very lucky that we could see Mt. Fuji from Tokyo Metropolitan Government building. I still remember your mother's smile when we visited Kusunoki Masashige statue. Thank you very much again.

He is an interesting guys and with lots of travel experience understands travellers needa. We highly recommend Mura san as your tour guide in Tokyo !!.

Fuji. Double lucky!! Chatting with you reminded me of my poor Bahasa Indonesia, lah. Thank you very much. Hideaki Murayama
