What to Expect

There are many attractions including the new and the old in Tokyo.
Besides visiting historical and traditional spots, why don't you experience and see the modern and pop culture in Tokyo, next?
In this tour, we'll visit four or five places -Shibuya, Harajyuku, Omotesando&Aoyama and Akihabara.

Our first destination is Shibuya. It is known as one of the busiest districts such as the famous scramble crossing. Let's see a flock of people and across the street without bumping them! We'll stop by the statue of dog called Hachi and other interesting spots in Shibuya like Nonbei alley and Uobei innovative belt conveyor style sushi bar.
Then we'll visit Harajyuku(Takeshita street). It is known as the latest fashion trend area, especially for teenagers and it is famous for cos-players who are dressed in costumes. There are a big 100 yen shop, photo sticker machines, pet clothes shops, crepe shops and many casual fashion shops in this area.
Omotesando is the finest fashion area. The main street of Omotesando is called the Champs Elysees in Tokyo. There are many luxurious shops, KIDDY LAND (Toy & animation shop), Oriental bazaar (souvenir shop), Ukiyoe museum and nice cafes & restaurants.
We'll have lunch in Omotesando & Aoyama area.
Then we'll visit world-famous automobile company, the Honda head quarter in Aoyama. Robot called ASIMO will show several his great functions such as walking, running and doing sign language. The demonstration will be held twice a day (1:30 pm and 3:00 pm) and it takes about 20 minutes. It depends on our pace, we'll decide the time of visiting together.
Our last destination is Akihabara. If you're interested, we can have a break at a maid cafe. Girls who are wearing maid costumes will welcome you as their master politely. You can order food and drinks and can take a photo with the maid (you need to pay extra charge). Customers can also enjoy chatting with them before the order is being served.
Akihabara is well known for shopping as well. I can take you anywhere you are interested in such as Don Quijote, Gacyapon(capsule toy) shops, anime figure doll shops, comic stores, and electronics shops.

In this tour, you can enjoy shopping as well as seeing modern part of Japan.

I'm looking forward to meeting you in this tour!
Thank you, Arigatou!

Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a four years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.

Thank you, Arigatou!

“ Pop and Modern Sights of Tokyo ”

We were very fortunate to select Yukiko as our guide for a day to see the modern sights of Tokyo. She met us at our hotel wearing a beautiful kimono, which carried respect as we moved through crowded trains and streets to visit Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Shibuya Crossing and Akihabara. She was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and well-organised and easily communicated with us in English. We thought Yukiko was delightful and we thoroughly recommend her for any tour she offers. Thank you for a very enjoyable day, Yukiko!

“ Exceeded All Expectations ”

Our Guide Yukiko looked after my family for 2 wonderful days in Tokyo, We are from a small country town in rural Australia so we are not used to the big city. Yukiko was very well organised and she arranged to take us to places based on our general advices as to what might interest us. It made visiting Tokyo fun and educational at the same time. Yukiko told us relevant information about the place we visited and we learned much about Tokyo and its history as well as Japanese customs. We were impressed with the friendly and courteous manner in which Yukiko dealt with us and our young children who can become distracted and a bit unruly but nothing was to hard for Yukiko. We were taken to traditional Japanese restaurants for lunch and experienced things we would never have been able to arrange for ourselves. When we left on the final day it was actually very sad as Yukiko had quickly become a friend to my whole family and we will remember her for years to come . I could not say anything negative about Yukiko who is a most impressive guide and a wonderful kind and generous person. Telford Family Airlie Beach Queensland Australia

“ Awesome tour for teenagers and adults alike :) ”

What a great day - Yukiko was really friendly, very organised and attentive during the tour. The pace was just right for myself and my 2 teens, and we had time for lots of detours for interesting shops/coffee/crepes etc! The lunch stop was particularly enjoyable and gave my kids the opportunity to try something new. Yukiko also got us used to the underground/Metro which was good experience for the rest of our stay in Tokyo. I would fully recommend one of Yukiko's tours and we'll be back one day for sure :)

“ Yukiko was friendly and informative ”

She tailored the tour especially for my Son's 18th Birthday, showing him the places he would love. She did not disappoint, and he had a fantastic day. Yukiko is full of knowledge on the city, the history and the modern twist of Tokyo. She provided us with maps, transport options and even pointed us in the direction of our restaurant booked for that night. Yukiko is a very lovely person and I would not hesitate to ask her to be our guide again when we revisit Tokyo.

Yukiko-san greeted our family of three dressed in her kimono which was a very sweet gesture. She took us for quick shopping before lunch at a local sushi restaurant where the chef prepared the food in front of us. Yukiko-san then showed us more of Shibuya before taking us through Harajuku, then to Aoyama to look at the latest from Honda. Our final destination for the day was Aki Harbara where my teenage son bought his Gundam model kits. It was a packed day but Yukiko-san planned it extremely well and was very patient throughout, taking the effort to explain history of local places such as the Drunkards Alley and Togo Shrine. We highly recommend Yukiko-san!

Absolutely one of the best tour guides. I gave her a list months in advance of what I would like to see and she was able to make it happen. She answered all questions and requests promptly via email. She picked us up at the hotel lobby on time. Before the tour started she showed us our itinerary marked on a map. I like her organization skills. She is very knowledgeable of the rail system which is very complicated to navigate. She also gave us very clear instructions and training on how to use the local subway for our other days in Tokyo. Most of all, her command of the English language is strong and made us able to communicate with her with ease. Very highly recommended.
