This is a short tour of Meiji Jingu Shrine and Omotesando for approximately 5 hours.
We start from Meiji Jingu Shrine near JR Harajuku station. This shrine is surrounded by a big man-made forest, and is dedicated to Emperor Meiji & Empress Shoken. After visiting the shrine, we walk along the Omotesando street. There are various shops and museums we can visit, depending on your interests.

What to Expect

After visiting the Meiji Jingu Shrine, your tour plan is flexible. We basically walk through Omotesando street, but we can also try Takeshita Dori street or Cat street, and enjoy some shopping. There are also attractive museums and architectures in this area, so we can stop by and appreciate them if you are interested. We shall have lunch somewhere nearby anytime.

“ A very nice tour... ”

We had a very nice tour with Aki , she had listened very well what we like to see and do in Tokyo. She told us a lot of interesting things according typical japanese things. I really would recommend her.


I hope my tour helped you explore Japan for the rest of your trip;-) The tour was short, but I enjoyed it very much. I wish the dream your daughter wrote at the Meiji Jingu Shrine comes true!! Best, Aki

“ Tour assistance ”

Aki was so helpful and friendly!!! She absolutely went above and beyond and did everything in her power to make our visit spectacular!!! She was unbelievable thoughtful and helpful beyond anything I could have expected. I don’t think it would be possible to find a better guide and wholeheartedly recommend her and cannot possibly express how thankful we are to have met her and worked with her!!!


I enjoyed our communication from the very beginning, and learned a lot from you, too. If this trip became a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience for you, I’m *super* happy!! Thank you for finding me as a guide, and it means a lot for me. I hope I can see you again someday either in Japan, US, or maybe in other country!? Please take care and enjoy the rest of your trip!!

“ Wonderful time with Aki ”

We only had a short time with Aki. I had her take my family (husband and 2 teenage daughters) to the Glico Factory tour which only accepts reservations in Japanese. She went out of her way in providing directions on how to meet her before we left on our trip and delivered more information at our hotel when we arrived in Tokyo. The tour was in Japanese and she translated for us even translating the Quiz questions for us as we played a game there. She actually visited the factory a week prior to our arrival to familiar herself with it so she can make our experience more enjoyable. Her English is excellent and was so personable and sweet. I so enjoyed our time with her and most definitely hire her again if we go back to Japan.


I’m glad that I could be of help to cross out one of the places on your “To-do in Japan” list;-) Glico is a place of a good memory for my family, too, but I’m surprised that the factory tour is not really opened for international guests. I thought it was great that you could reach the information even though it was not available in English. So I really wanted to find out the way how I could take my non-Japanese guests. The tour with you was short, but I really enjoyed the conversation with you, your husband, and your two beautiful daughters! I wish I had more time to take you around. Please make another list when you come back to Japan next time (^^) Aki

“ 1 day personalized tour of Tokyo ”

Aki is very sweet and tried very hard to make our day special


Hi Paul, Thank you for your lovely message and review! I enjoyed your company very much. I hope you had a good rest and relaxing time with your family after traveling for many days. Did the new shoes for Marcelle fit better? I’m very sorry that I couldn’t find a good one quicker during our tour. Please give my best regards to her as well, and hope to see you both again someday ;-) Aki

“ Fantastic Day Trip in Tokyo ”

Aki was well prepared and thoughtful throughout the day. She planned for us and took into consideration time for rest for my father. She ensured that we had a great time and in no way did we feel rush or pressured for the next destination. Thank you Aki and we hope to meet you again!


Thank you for your kind words! I tried my best to plan the tour enjoyable and relaxing, but you and your father made it true! I enjoyed the sites, food, and conversations with you very much. I hope to see you both again, and also your wife and children next time ;-) Aki
