What to Expect

Discover the charms of real “Shitamachi” town in Tokyo!
Fukagawa is a traditional commonner's town in the eastern Tokyo where you can feel the local atmosphere. Started as a fisherman's village, it developed into one of the most popular cities during the Edo period with notable temples and shrines. There used to exist a famous Geisha quarters as well, which attracted not only commoners but also Ukiyoe artists, kabuki playwrights, artists and celebrities... It's one of the places that still give you a sense of old Tokyo.

On this tour, we'll see:
1) Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine: one of the most representative shrines in "shitamachi" area, known as a birthplace of sumo and famous for having the biggest portable shrine in Japan.
2) Fukagawa Fudoson Temple: a popular temple among locals with lots of attractions: huge statue of Fudo (Wisdom King Acala), coridor of crystal bodhisattvas, "goma" - exotic fire rituals of Shinto Buddhism and more!
3) Fukagawa Enmado: meet the biggest statue of "Emma (lord of Hell in the Japanese Buddhism)"
4) Kiyosumi Teien: explore a famous landscape garden with lots of unique stones (entrance fee: 150 yen / 70 yen for persons of 65 yrs old and above / No charge for primary school children or younger).
5) Fukagawa Edo Museum: a histrory museum with an actual size replication of the old quarter of Edo (entrance fee: 400 yen for high school students and above / 50 yen for primary and junior high school students).

[Please note] *We walk between each site in the Fukagawa area. If you would prefer taking a taxi, please pay the taxi fare.
*I can change the route and length of the tour flexibly. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions :)

Hi, I'm Kazue (car-zoo-A). Thanks so much for viewing my profile!

I'm a native eastern Japanese, born in Kawaguchi City, Saitama (just north to Tokyo) and spent most of my student and working time in central Tokyo. So I'm able to show you attractions in and around Tokyo, especially the places loved by locals.

Tokyo is diverse - there are not only skyscrapers but also tranquil shrines and temples, real local "shitamachi" areas, and even mountains, vegetables fields... and I would like to help you enjoy these various aspects of Tokyo in your own style!

Personally I love Japanese food (especially miso soup and dessert "wagashi" like mochi), playing shamisen (a traditional Japanese musical instrument with three strings) and growing plants, which means I'm especially suitable for those who love mochi / kabuki / bonsai ;)

I'm looking forward to meeting you in Japan :)

“ When I told her I want to go to the school I attended as a child, she located it and initiated a call to them and then forward to me the web address. ”

It was a wonderful day. It began at the school I attended in K-2 grades and the the Dean of Admissions gave us an hour long tour and showed me the building where I would have had classes. It was rich. Then we visited a park near by that she thought was lovely and I probably went to as a child. On the way I spotted a pastry shop so we digressed for a treat and coffee. And walked thru the neighborhood of Hiro-o. Then we went to the Japanese Traditional Crafts Aoyama Square that I said I want to see as I love to see pottery and crafts of a country. Had a wonderful lunch along the way and then went to the gardens of the Imperial Palace and concluded with going to a big toy story for gifts for grandchildren. It was a fun, delightful day with Kazue who had a good listening hear and suggestions for what interests me.

“ Our customised tour in Tokyo with Kazue! ”

We had the most amazing day with Kazue during our tour in Tokyo! She is very friendly, polite and we really enjoyed our day with her visiting Tokyo! We contacted Kazue on her availability before arriving in Japan and she was very prompt to respond with ideas on how to customise our tour. After a few emails our plan was set and ready for our one-day (8hrs) tour of Tokyo. She introduced us to must-see areas, shrines/temples and food of Tokyo. The fact that she speaks perfect English, made our life so much easier when we needed a translator into Japanese. She made the first day of our honeymoon very special!
