Overview

This tour offers one of Tokyo's most popular districts, Harajyuku, Shibuya and Shinjuku etc in which you will find both traditional and modern Japan.
A solemn Meiji shrine, fashionable Takeshita street, Shibuya Scramble Crossing and more!! The final destination can be chosen by the customer from Shinjuku, Tokyo tower or Roppongi. You can also enjoy Japanese food culture in this tour!!

What to Expect

This tour focuces on the west side of central Tokyo, which is a fashion mecca for young people. Believe it or not, however, it is enjoyable for all the generations!!
Meiji shrine is a solem shrine dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. It is so peaceful with thousands of trees that you may forget you are in the world busiest city of Tokyo. It is called an oasis of Tokyo.
Oposite side of Harajyuku station is Takeshitadori street which is lined up with catchy shops and food stands that sell coloful and fancy clothes and food. Once you enter the street, you will be enchanted by its enthusiastic atmosphere. Visiting animal Cafe or Kawaii Monster Cafe can be an experience!!
Ota Memorial Museum Of Art which is just 5 minutes away from Harajyuku station fetures traditional Japanese Ukiyoe or woodblock prints created in the Edo period. It's worth visiting and looking at those works not only as an Art but also a material to know what Japanese people were doing, wearing, eating back then. Nezu museum has a small but very nice Japanese style garden. Please chose one of these museums.

Then the tour offers you the world famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing where almost 3,000 people cross from all directions without batting each other! Just standing at the site reminds you one scene from a movie! There is also a statue of Hachi, the dog which was loyal to his master. If you hear his story, you will want to take a picture or two wiht Hachi!!

About the final destination, I will leave it to you!! You have three choises; *Route 1. Shinjuku, *Route 2. Tokyo tower and Zojoji temple, *Route 3. Hiei shrine and Roppongi. All the three options have a building or tower with an observation floor and you can enjoy the spectacular view of Greater Tokyo from there.

“ Excellent immersion in such short time! ”

Eiko-san is awesome. We learned so much about Japan, Japanese culture, customs and the people in our two days with her. This will sound like a cliche after reading her other reviews, but at the end of the second day it was truly like being shown around by a family member. She’s thoughtful about your objectives, needs and requirements as a touring party. We highly recommend her. Eiko-san, arigatogozaimashita!

Eiko:

Hi Mayank and his lovely family! :-) Thank you for taking your preciouce time to post the review which is so great!! Those two days with all of you in Tokyo and Kamakura+Enoshima were gift to me. The weather was so nice that we could see beautiful Mt. Fuji above the see from Enoshima! We experienced many things together, such as scooping goldfish, eating veg. ramen and green tea ice cream, fishmarket, front car of the Enoden Line, Tea Ceremony etc!! Of course the tour was so much fun with your pretty girls, but at the same time, your attentive attitude toward learning other culture moved me a lot and rased me as a guide at the same time. Let me tell you my appreciation!! I hope you'll have another chance to visit Japan again soon. So see you then, hopefully!! :-) Arigatogozaimashita! ... read more

“ A fantastic day out with Eiko ”

Through my emails with Eiko, i thought of her as a warm and thoughtful person. True enough, when we met her this morning , she was friendly and warm. She was professional and thoughtful and was able to tell us about the history of Kamakura and answer the questions that we had. Our journeys on the trains and buses were not boring maybe because we are all women and we had lots to talk about. We enjoyed the sights that Eiko brought us to see and the shopping street that we walked through to try some of the sweets and delicacies. We highly recommend Eiko if you are looking for a guide cos i will certainly look for her again when i come to japan !

Eiko:

Hi Phing! Thank you very much for such a nice review! It was so much fun to be your Kamakura guide this time. We talked a lot of subjects from Japanese history, religion including the Shinto rituals of 7-5-3 and Yabusame to the cost of the Japanese style wedding ceremony. :-) We also visited the tea master’s house, enjoying seeing all the process of the tea ceremony. Thank you for showing your interests each time! I hope you have a safe flight back home. I definitely would like to see you and your mom again in the near future!! Until then, Take care!! Eiko

“ Excellent service by Eiko. ”

Eiko has the personality of a good tourguide. She is amiable, patient and works hard to please her clients. She’s prompt in her replies and always thinking what would benefit her clients the most. We had a wonderful experience of Tokyo and Hakone with all the help provided by Eiko considering that my husband has a health issue. We thank TripleLights specially Eiko for the excellent service.

Eiko:

Hi Luna!! Thank you very much for such a wonderful review!! You and your family were all very nice and it was my pleasure to have been with you for two days in Tokyo and Hakone!! Thank you for treating me as a part of your family all the time. We had exchanged a lot of messages about our tour to Hakone before your actual visit to Japan. Although Mt. Fuji was a little too shy that day, I was so happy when we arrived safely at Tokyo station by Shinkansen, bullet train which was your husband’s number 1 wish about the Hakone tour. :-) I’m looking forward to your next trip to Japan!! Take care!! Eiko

“ Tokyo Private Tour ”

We had 2 great days in Tokyo and Kamakura with Eiko. To start with she was very quick to respond to any and all queries as we were getting our customized tour ready to go. She constantly followed up so I always felt a high level of engagement. Her input was fantastic and she went out of her way to accommodate my wife's love of gardens. She was very prompt and courteous and her knowledge of the areas we visited was amazing. I would highly recommend Eiko for any period of time in Tokyo! Thanks Eiko for a wonderful experience!

Eiko:

Hi Peter and Mary!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! :-) How is your stomach, Peter? I can’t believe it’s been almost one week since our Kamakura tour. It was so much fun to visit many places and share my favorite things with you. You and Mary always showed great interests to what I explained. You were such a wonderful couple that I felt like we had been friends for a long time by the end of our tour. You were too nice to me. Again, thank you very much for having me as your Tokyo And Kamakura guide! Please come back to Japan again soon!! Take care!! Eiko
