What to Expect

The tour starts at Tsukiji market at 8:30. You might think it is too early, but earlier is better for exploring in the market. You may see various kinds of fish and vegetables unique in Japan. After feeling the energy of the market, we move to a beautiful traditional garden, Hamarikyu, which is only about 10 minutes' walk away. It was once a palace and garden of Tokugawa shoguns. From the garden, we ride on a water-bus which runs to Asakusa. Please enjoy a one hour Sumida river cruise while you are relax and feel cool breeze. Then we get off the final stop, Asakusa. The most popular attraction in Asakusa is Sensoji temple, known as Asakusa Kannon Temple. You can enjoy the atmosphere of old Tokyo, Edo.

“ "Custom tour" flexibility greatly appreciated - TripleLights is the best ! ”

We wanted to experience Shinjuko at night and other areas of Tokyo during the daytime. TripleLights let us have our way by taking a six-hour tour and dividing it into a 3 hr daytime and 3 hr nighttime tour, separated by dinner in a traditional, non-touristy Japanese restaurant. Michiko Muranaka, our guide, executed this tour beautifully for us. It would take too long to describe everything we did, but suffice it to say everything we wanted to accomplish was accomplished, and more. Seeing Shinjuko on a Saturday night was like being in Times Square...multiplied 5+ times with its tremendous neon signage and displays. Nothing else compares.

Michiko:
Dear George Thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad to hear that. The night you requested was Halloween weekend, so we put the devil's horns on our heads. I won't forget the night we spent together. And one more thing I won't forget is the very useful word" senior moment". I hope you will come back again in the near future!

“ Great Evening Pub and Restaurant Tour ”

Michiko was a terrific addition to our Tokyo vacation! She met us as planned at our hotel and returned us to our hotel. Her command of English was very good, not perfect, but we never had any real language barrier problems. She knows Kubichiko and related areas like the back of her hand, made a handful of detours to facilitate some things we saw on the way (Godzilla!) and otherwise handled us and the Japanese pub owners with aplomb! We would definitely ask for her by name the next time we are in Tokyo!

Michiko:
Dear Scott and Leslie, Thank you very much for sending a great review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed my night drinking tour. I, myself enjoyed that night with you, Thank you for buying me all the foods and drinks. Take care and wish you a wonderful life together! Michiko

Michiko was a wonderful tour guide! - I was only in Tokyo for a 30 hours layover. I wanted to see the city at night. She was very gracious in meeting me a little later then normal time at my hotel. She was very knowledgable in the city history and culture. I would highly-recommend her if you are visiting Tokyo!

Michiko:
HI George, Thank you so much for your great review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed my tour. I also enjoyed the time sharing with you. The first bar I took you is one of my favorites Do you remember the taste of delicious yakitori, BBQ chicken? There are a wide range of bars worth visiting, so I hope you come back again !
