Overview

You never see Tokyo until you see Edo. By joying the tour, you will experience the present Japanese culture, history, the way of thinking, and a sense of beauty developed from the Edo period. I am sure I provides you with the most impressive tour.
In 1603 the first Tokugawa shogun, established the Edo government. This is the beginning of Edo, From then on, Tokyo's history & Tokyo culture started.

What to Expect

There are a lot of attractions in Tokyo. This tour focuses on experience and realizing Tokyo & Edo culture.
●Edo-Tokyo Museum is the best place to learn Edo and the transition from Edo to Tokyo. For example, what are emperors, shoguns, and feudal lords and their roles in the Edo period. After that, we walk around the Ryogoku neighborhood.
- Ryogoku Edo NOREN is a food mall. You can see a sumo ring and try to taste Japanese sake (300 yen).
- Ryogoku Sumo Arena is where sumo tournaments are held. We can visit Sumo museum, if it is open.
- Former Yasuda Garden is a Japanese garden.
- Tokyo Memorial Temple was built to remember the people who died in the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and the Great Tokyo Air Raid 1945.
- Walking along the Sumida river (15 minutes), we take a train to Asakusa.
● Asakusa has the oldest temple and shrine in Tokyo and is the most popular place among the Japanese and foreign people. And it is famous for its Nakamise street (250m long) lined with about 50 small shops, where you can enjoy (window) shopping. Also you will learn how to purify yourself and pray for shinto deities.
● Tokyo Cruise (the Sumida river: Asakusa to Hamarikyu Garden) takes about 40 minutes. The ocean views are waiting for you.
● Hama-rikyu Gardens is one of the three most beautiful Japanese style gardens in Tokyo. (This is my opinion.) It was once the family garden of Tokugawa shoguns in the Edo period which functioned as an outer citadel defending the Edo Castle. If you are interested in Japanese tea called "matcha" made from powdered green tea leaves, you can try to have one.

If you request another place, I can arrange it. (For example, if you have visited Asakusa already, I will recommend visiting the Imperial Palace or the Tokyo Skytree instead of Asakusa.)
