What to Expect

Meet at JR Harajyuku Station.
First visit one of the most sacred places in Tokyo, Meiji Shrine. Meiji Shrine is dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife. Walking in the 100 year planted forest is incredibly quiet and sacred although it is in the center of Tokyo. Learn about Japanese religion, culture, and feel the authentic atmospheres.
After Meiji Shrine, walk through one of the most busiest street with young people in Tokyo, the birth place of the teenagers fashions- Takeshita Street, explore the small street in Harajyuku- Urahara, then stroll the street where many high end brand shops are located - Omotesando. Omotesando is the place that you can also see several modern architectures. You can do shopping while walking on the streets, too.
This tour visit old and new spot in Tokyo, the contrast would be quite interesting for foreigners.

“ Best tour guide ever ”

Sachimi is the best tour guide we ever had. She planned a 1/2 tour of Tokyo for my wife and myself meticulously. Spot on time she picked us up at our hotel and not only was a very knowledgeable Tokyo tourguide, but also helped us to rent bikes (bike sharing) as well as making JR reservations. Unfortunately we only had 1/2 a day to spend with Sachimi and would have loved to have more time with her. Her English is immaculate and everyone who has the pleasure of having a tour with Sachimi will for sure be as pleased as we are. Thanks a lot Sachimi for your outstanding tour!

“ Tokyo highlights in one day ”

We had a great tour with Sachimi. She met us at the cruise ship in Yokohama as scheduled. We took trains and subways everywhere, which helped give us a "local" experience. We would not have wanted to navigate the trains by ourselves. She is a delightful person with great English and tailored the itinerary to our interests. I just wish we had been able to tour with her for another day. Thank you, Sachimi, for a wonderful day.

“ Fantastic day ”

We had the most wonderful day with Sachimi. She is a wealth of information and likes to have a laugh too! We (family with 2 older teens) really enjoyed the day and are so pleased we toured with her. Thank you again Sachimi!

“ Amazing Market to see, a fun day with Sachimi ”

Sashimi was very good to talk English with, and was excellent at pointing out things that a foreigner would find interesting, while explaining the cultural and historical context. She also was excellent at adapting the tour to how much energy and interest we subtly exhibited.

“ Sachimi's tour was the highlight of our vacation! ”

We were on a family vacation throughout Japan the last two weeks in August 2017 and our tour with Sachimi was, without a doubt, the highlight of our trip! Sachimi gave us a tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market followed by a tour of Asakusa. She was so knowledgeable about everything we experienced. We would not be able to have gotten through either location without her expertise. Sachimi was also so great with our 11 year old son. She made certain he was enjoying himself as much as we were. I highly recommend her services! Sachimi, thank you for such an enjoyable tour!
