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 .

Kahoko took the time to answer all of our questions and customized the tour around what we wanted to see. She was the nicest guide and made sure my wife and I were comfortable at every step. Would use Kahoko again when I come back to Tokyo!
Kahoko expertly guided me through the labyrinth of Tokyo’s metro system for our day’s excursion to Mt. Takao. First by subway, then train, then cable car and finally we used our own two feet walking on a very civilized paved path to reach our destination. Even though our weather was picture perfect with blue skies and puffy white clouds, Mt. Fuji eluded us from the summit of Mt. Takao. That said, the sheer serenity of this location and the exquisite views make this a very worthwhile tour. Kahoko is a fantastic guide with knowledge of Tokyo and all things Japanese from food to art to architecture to history and culture. So in addition to a great hike, I learned much about Japanese culture – past and present. Thanks Kahoko for a fantastic and fulfilling day!
Kahoko greeted us with a warm welcome and had a wonderful day planned out for us beginning to end with walking to the Kabuki theater and fish market, and seeing temples and shrines along the way and boat ride to another city, sharing history past and current concerns, sampling new meals, giving guidance to gift buying ideas and ending with coffee together. This is the best way to see a city especially with a different language. Definitely would invite Kahoko to lead us again.
Kahoko was terrific. Her English is very good. Her informative commentary really added to or enjoyment of all of the sights. She easily adapted to our preferences and went well beyond her commitment in order to accompany us to the location we wanted to visit after our half day tour to make sure that we found it. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.
I love how patient, gracious and knowledgeable Kahoko is when it pertains to Japan culture, food, and family. We traveled with 4 boys aged 12, 9, 7, 2 and she was very helpful in managing the tour with them. My wife likes Kahoko and we wish we have more time to spend with her. She speaks English very well and very approachable. Highly recommended!
