Overview

Meiji Jingu is one of the most famous tourist destinations both from overseas and Japan. On new year's day, an incredibly-long line of people to pray there can be seen, which is yearly reported in TV news shows.

If lucky, we could get a glance of a wedding procession with priests. Newly-weds are in Japanese traditional wedding attires. This makes you reconfirm that you are truly in Japan.

What to Expect

Tokyo has the image of modern culture with skyscrapers and international cuisine. But it surely has traditional aspects like Shinto Shrines, and Meiji Jingu is always the best choice from among many of those in Tokyo.

This is located in the middle of Tokyo, which makes it possible for every touris to visit casually. Once hit on visitting, I can bet that it will meet your expectation.
Originally Shinto religion respects all the small elements in nature, in short, Gods are the nature itself. You can feel the touch of this idea while strolling around the wide&green area in shrine.

Harajuku is also a must-see spot because it offers you a wide variety of experiences. Eating, drinking, shopping are needless to say. You can also visit Ukiyoe museum nearby.(old style masterpieces of art)
Fashion extremism has been generated often from this area, and some pilot products are released to judge whether it will catch on among young generation. You can feel the Tokyo trend here!

 リビューが遅くなりすみません。なみえさんからたくさんのことを学ぶことができました!3時間のうちに、なるべくたくさんの場所へ行けるように予定を立てて下さったし、途中変更があっても柔軟に対応して下さっていたので、すごいなと思いました。よく写真を撮りましょうかと聞いて下さったり、ツアーの最後に帰り道を丁寧に教えて下さったことも嬉しかったです。今回、ツアーガイドについて学びたいという理由で申し込んで、大丈夫かなと思ったのですが快く色々なことを教えて下さり、嬉しかったです。この経験を糧にしてこれからも頑張りたいと思います。なみえさん、本当にありがとうございました!これからもがんばって下さい。 read more

“ Tokyo Tour ”

Namie, is a delightful and very knowledgable tour guide, who provided me with a whistle stop trip around some of Tokyo’s best known landmarks. I would recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo for the first time.

NAMIE:

Thank you for the heartful message! I enjoyed walking with you and felt happy that you could finally get yukata for your daughter. I was lucky to meet a tech-guy like you, which opened up my eyes to apps and technology. Thank you again for your treat on lunch. I will definitely visit London in my future trip.

Our experince with namie was fantastic. Very helpful and kind! Assisted us with many activities and really put effort in trying to take us out and about. She assisted us to get tickets before we even arrived in tokyo which was really sweet! She took us to many differnt places and also helped us find certain destinations. Would highly recommend her.

Hello, James. Thank you for the wonderful message and it encouraged me so much when I need to make every possible effort in this job. It was nice to meet a newly-wed couple. Hope your days be happy.

“ A Great Time With Namie! ”

Namie was a terrific guide and I can recommend her without reservation. She knew Tokyo very well and showed us all the sights we desired. She responded to our inquiries promptly and professionally. When I return to Tokyo, you can be sure I will contact Namie again to see some more sights.

NAMIE:

Thank you for the review, Jim. I am very happy to show you around Tokyo as second visit. It was such a nice talking about any kind of music, which you are working through. If any chance, I would surely take you to a karaoke house for Japanese soul music and Kabuki show. Thank you again for your treat on lunch! (^_^)

“ She is more than a guide, she is great! ”

I am a professional tour guide from Turkey and I bring groups to Japan every April. This year I met Namie and I booked her to guide us in Tokyo. She did a great job and co-operation with me. She arranged itinerary, restaurants, parking lots and everything for us and me and my group were extremely satisfied with her service. If you book her, you never regret. I will work with her every April when I come back.

NAMIE:

Hello. Thank you for the wonderful message. I learned how to manage a big group tour thanks to your assistance. It surely was a fruitful experience as a guide and a good memory of co-working with you. See you again next year!
