What to Expect

. Tsukiji market is one of the most popular attractions among foreign tourists. Although there are many strict rules you have to keep, Tsukiji market is worth visiting. 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.

“ Sunday in the Psrks with Michiko ”

Michiko is the most lovely guide. She is very knowledgeable and efficient, but gentle and easy going at the same time. We felt like we were with a Japanese friend leisurely strolling the Meiji Shrine and the cherry blossom filled Shinjuku Gyoen Park, learning many interesting things along the way. Michiko took us to Harajuku and helped us shop for a young girl's costume. She also took us to a beautiful department store to purchase our picnic lunch. We were most appreciative of Michiko's teaching us to use the subway. She is excellent and we hope to see her again as our guide on our next visit to Tokyo.

Michiko:
Dear Susan, Thank you very much for giving me the great review . I'm glad to know that you enjoyed having our picnic lunch under the cherry blossoms in the park. I also enjoyed the viewing many different kinds of cherry blossoms there than I expected. That was the pleasure moment we shared. I hope to see you again, thank you Susan and Daniel. PS.I hope that your niece would love the cute costume you selected in "Takeshita street".:-) Michiko

“ Tokyo thru an insider's eye ”

Michiko was a very good guide who gave us the insider's look into Tokyo- from the cool shops to go to in Harajuku, Pokemon center, Tokyo skyview tower and the best tonkatsu lunch in town. She guided us thru the dizzying Tokyo train and subway maze. We enjoyed the Imperial Gardens tour with the blooming sakura and the soothing zen gardens.

Michiko:
Hello Grace, Thank you for sending a good review to me. I'm glad to hear that you really enjoyed the time in Tokyo with me. The first day was not a perfect day for sightseeing, because of the rain. I won't forget the time sharing with your family in the Kawaii Monster Café to avoid the rain outside. I wish you and your family's all the best ! Michiko

Michiko conducted the basic highlights tour of Tokyo for me -- my one-day stop in Tokyo. Everything went smoothly. She is knowledgeable about the sights and easy to talk to.

Michiko:

“ Tour was great!! ”

The tour with Michiko was great. we spent a little time in one of the yakitori bars under the tracks of Shibuya. It was a nice hole in the wall type of place. I was able to eat good yakitori and drink good sake. The best part was that Michiko was able to help me communicate with the other customers that were eating there. The second place we went to was Alcatraz Theme restaurant. It was a very interesting place. I was able to try a lot of weird things. If your traveling solo or in a group, Michiko is a good person to help show you around.

Michiko:
Hi Kevin, Thank you for giving me such a great review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed my tour. I also enjoyed one of the unique bars which you chose from my list. To tell the truth, that was my first visit and I myself enjoyed "Alcatraz ER". By the way, how was "Urei" I booked for you? I'm looking forward to seeing you again and toasting "Kanpai"! Michiko

“ "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!
