What to Expect

This is an original tour which you can enjoy unknown "Tokyo" as well as a popular tourist spot, Meiji Jingu Shrine.

●Meiji Jingu Shrine
It is one of the most respected Shinto shrines in Japan.
Every year, over 3 million people visit there for the first pray of the New Year.
It is dedicated to the divine souls of Emperor Meiji and his consort Empress Shoken, although their tombs are in Kyoto.

●The ASAKURA Museum of Sculpture is the best Japanese garden in my opinion.
Before opening to the public as a museum, the ASAKURA
Museum of Sculpture was the studio and residence of Fumio ASAKURA (1883–1964), a leading sculptor of modern Japan from the Meiji through Taisho to Showa periods.
The building is listed as a national cultural property, and the premises as a whole as a national place of scenic beauty.
I love Japanese garden very much. I have visited hundreds of Japanese garden.
This Museum’s garden is the BEST in my opinion.

Near the museum, you can visit YANAKA Ginza.
It is located in the area called "YaNeSen", very heart-warming heartful area in Tokyo. It is named from the first letter of Kanji「Yanaka」「Nezu」and「Sendagi」.

Lunch will be taken at a Middle Eastern cuisine restaurant, but subject to change at your request. The order and duration for each place is subject to change per your request.
