“ Meiji Temple and Imperial Palace grounds a great visit ”

Yumi met us at our hotel and took us via the underground railway to the Meiji temple and Imperial Palace grounds. My wife has dementia and Yumi was helpful, clear, calm and excellent informed company. Her English is good and she answered all our questions. She is great at her job and a nice lady

Yumi:
James san, Thank you for your great review, I really appreciate it and I enjoyed the tour with you and Cherry san very much. You are so sophisticated and intellectual inquisitive, so I could learn many things from talking with you. Cherry san is a very good walker too and her smile is unforgettable for me. There are many wonderful and beautiful places around Japan. I wish you and your family would come again to Japan near future by your quick decision like this time !! In addition, I really wish your daughter, a great athletic dentist, would run at next year Tokyo marathon and you and I will cheer for her along the route side. Thank you again,

KAWAGOE: A traditional Japan Tour

(1) Reviews

Kawagoe will give you wonderful experience of the traditional Japan which you can't see in Tokyo. Only about one-hour ride from Shinjuku ! The old storehouse merchant houses are lined up, and the Toki-no-Kane (Bell Tower), a symbol of Kawagoe, welcomes you to ring four times a day. Let’s take a stroll around the town and you'll feel as if you travelled through time to ancient Edo.
