What to Expect
Is this your first time to Tokyo? Whenever I travel to a new city for the first time, I try to figure out the city size, must -see spots, culture, food, transportation, etc. and always think that it will be nice if someone guides me to know the city's outline quickly. Here I am! I'm your guide.
If you are a repeater to Tokyo,no problem! When I travel abroad, I always encounter many intriguing traditions, cultures, places, food and people. If there is someone who explains what I see and want to know, my understanding of the city will definitely deepen. I would like to offer you such experiences to make your travel rich with memories.
