Overview

Tour will start at Kiyosumi Park which is also a typical strolling style Japanese garden. It's not so big, so very suitable to warm up your day. Then, let's take a walk downtown area to Fukagawa-Fudo temple which belongs to Shingon sect, one of the oldest, Esoteric Buddhism sect in Japan where we can experience Homa ritual.

What to Expect

Kiyosumi park feaures many kinds of rocks and stones from all over Japan together with trees and flowers and man-made mountain. (Stones are typically appreciated in Japanse gardens.) Turtles and Carps will be welcoming you from the pond!
Homa ritual is priest's praying while burning ceder sticks offered by followers to ward off evil and make their wishes come true. This ritual will take 30 minuites together with chanting of sutras and the sound of drums and shell horns. It's dynamic and fascinating!
Around the approach there are many small but characteristic shops and restaurants of local specialities such as Fukagawa rice bowl of simmered clams. It's nice to browse and have lunch after terminating the tour.

“ An Unforgettable Tokyo Experience ”

Noriko is a very experienced and knowledgeable about her job. We had a wonderful time and learned so much about Japan's culture, traditions and history. She explains it to us in a very simple but precise way. She's very flexible even at the very last minute to make changes in the tour itinerary and request to add more things that my daughter wants to do/experience she gladly do what we ask. A very polite, cheerful and accommodating tour guide and interpreter. We surely enjoyed our tour and if we have the chance to go back to Tokyo again we will still choose her to be our guide. No words could express our thanks to her.

“ Amazing Tokyo ”

When we checked in to the hotel, to our surprise the concierge handed over an envelope, which was a hand written welcome note dropped of by Norika. This was a pleasant surprise. She also arranged for us a special tour of the Tokyo parliament - The National Diet. Noriko was very helpful, kind and gentle person. Thank you for the amazing Tokyo tour!
