Kahoko's recommended tour
8:30 At Tokyo Metro Tsukiji station.
Heading for Tsukiji, the biggest fish market in the world. So many fish, so many people,
,so many sushi restaurants. You can enjoy authentic sushi as brunch instead of later Asakusa
10:30 Walking to Ginza, one of the most sophisticated shopping zones in Tokyo. On the way to
Ginza, we can see Kabukiza,the theater for the traditional stage art,Kabuki. After strolling
around Ginza,we move to Asakusa.
11:45 Arriving Asakusa
It's always been a highlight of Tokyo sightseeing for its busy shopping arcade,Nakamise and
Senso-ji ,the oldest temple complex in Tokyo.
12:30 Lunch time. What shall we eat? Nothing is impossible here from a posh sukiyaki restaurant
to a reasonable noodle shop. Street food is another option. After lunch we take the subway
Omote-sando is originally the approach to Meiji-jingu . Now this stylish avenue is filled
with fancy designer shops and restaurants. Interestingly, just around the corner from
Omote-sando, we can find Takesita-dori, the famous teen fashion bazaar.
You'll see quite a few unique people in their eccentric fashion.
14:30 Visiting Meiji -jingu
It's one of the most prestigious shrines in Tokyo with solemn atmosphere.
In the precincts, there is a beautiful inner garden. If time allows, it's worth visiting.
You may be amazed with the tranquillity of the site even though it's in the busy district.
15:30 Now a long day is over. You must be content with full of experience, enjoyment, and
yes,exercise. Good job! Let me see you off at JR Harajuku station .

We had a fantastic time with Kahoko. Well paced days,great knowledge of the areas visited and easy to converse with. It was like visiting with an old friend. Highly recommended.
Kahoko san was very nice and professional guide with whom I spent six hours viewing Tokyo. She planned our route well knowing my wishes but also taking into an account the city constraints like traffic and rush hour. We discussed many aspects of Japan during the tour and she shared me interesting things of Japanise way of living and the society overall. I was very satisfied of the tour and can highly recommend Kahoko as a guide to share highlights of the wonderful city of Tokyo and Japan in general.
Our Tokyo trip was well worth it thanks to Kahoko. We were able to visit and see everything we planned. It was kind of hectic but everything fell into place (even the weather) :) Kahoko was kind enough to accomodate all our requests. Will definitely book Kahoko again on our next family trip to Japan.
We had a wonderful first day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was friendly, organized and flexible when we made some adjustments to our very ambitious plan for the day. She was great with our children and even helped us by making a reservation for my husband's birthday dinner. I'm not sure what we would have done for his birthday without her help. She made what could have been a stressful first day in town easy and fun.
Kahoko was very prompt setting up arrangements for our tour and was there on time to meet us at the beginning of the day. We had a stroller for our 1 year old so she found elevators to use in the subway wherever we could. She was patient, informative, kind, flexible and helpful with our toddler all day long. We highly recommend her for your tour (especially families!)
