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.

“ Extremely good tour guide ”

Noriko was punctual, knowledgeable, and conversant. We went to Mt. Fuji and Hakone with her and she did her best to show us whatever she could despite the rain and clouds. She suggested alternative sites because our ropeway was closed due to earthquake recently. Noriko listened to our suggestions and tried to please us as much as possible without jeopodising the schedule and time.

“ A good day to see Mt Fuji ”

Noriko was an able guide who was able to lead us to see Mt Fuji as viewed from Oishi Park. We went to on this trip to see Mt Fuji while Tokyo was having a heat wave, we were able Noriko was able to guide us thru the maze of trains and bus to get there. There were 10+ of us in the group and going from one mode of transportation to another can be daunting but she guided us very well. My only request is that maybe she could have advised us of the availability of chartered bus since we were a big group. Overall. it was a good day to see Mt Fuji as guided by Noriko.

Noriko:

Dear Arthur, Thank you so much for your suggestion. It was a very hot day, so good to escape from Tokyo and feel a nice breeze in the mountaineous area. I had explained to make my itinerary by using public transportation, however, I apologize if you felt it was incovenient. Thank you so much for your choosing Japan as a destination for your memorable family reunion! Sincerely, Noriko

“ 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.

Noriko:

No words could express my thanks to you! That's what I want to tell you... It was a very hot day and walking made the tour pretty hectec, but I was so glad that your family enjoyed every moment. Your daughter was so beautiful in kimono because she had a good eyes to choose! And it is very interesting your sons' attitudes are just like my sons' Also, I was so moved when I heard this travel was family memorial and prize for graduation and your children requested Japan as the destination. Please come back again!

“ 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!

Noriko:

Thank you so much for your kind comment. I'm so glad that you were intrested in visiting the National Diet. That 2 days' itinerary was pretty hectec with walking . However, I was so glad that your members were so energetic and enjoyed a lot. Thank you very much!
