What to Expect

In Tokyo, there are so many attractive places where you can have a great time of the day.
I selected three popular touring spots; Imperial palace, Meiji Jingu Shrine and Asakusa.

At first, we'll visit the East Garden of the Imperial Palace.(Monday and Friday are closed. Instead, we will visit Nijyubashi bridge of the Imperial Palace) We will visit two main spots such as the main tower of the former Edo castle and the Ninomaru Garden. Many kinds of seasonal flowers and plants are planted. You can enjoy the scenery all year around. It's very a beautiful Japanese garden.

Next, we'll go to Asakusa. It remains the old atmosphere of the Edo era and it's a very vivid town. On the way to Sensoji temple, we can enjoy shopping at Nakamise shopping street. It's very fun to see so many kinds of traditional crafts, sweets and souvenirs. Sweets like a small pancake stuffed with red bean paste, deep-fried buns stuffed with different kinds of pastes and rice crackers are famous in Asakusa. Asakusa district has many different facets. In this tour, I will also take you to Kappabashi street which is famous for kitchenware, Japanese Knives and food samples. On the way to Kappabashi street, we can see many local popular spots in Asakusa and residential area as well.
There are many kinds of restaurants such as Tempura, Soba, Udon, Tonkatsu, Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake), Sukiyaki, grilled eel rice bowl, Sushi, Hamburg, pasta, and so on. If you'd like to eat at a local tavern in the Hoppy street, definitely it is better to have a tour guide with you. Let's eat your favorite authentic Japanese food in Asakusa!


We'll then visit Meiji Jingu shrine which has rich culture and history and is about 100 years old now. It was built to commemorate the Emperor Meiji and the Empress Shoken in 1912. As it's located inside of the large forest, you can feel the peaceful atmosphere. It's a very popular Shrine in Tokyo. More than 3 million people visit here during the first three days of the New Year. The contrast between the outside world and inside of Meiji shrine is unique and interesting, feeling like the new and the old coexist in this area.

If you have any questions and requests, please feel free to ask me. I'll reply you as soon as possible.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one. I'm really looking forward to meeting you in my tour!
Thank you, Arigatou!

“ A great guide ”

Yukiko-san is an outstanding guide to have with attention to details. She made our holidays a happy and memorable one.. Not only she heard and guided us, she took her own initiative to write down on a piece of paper in Japanese on some of the special request when dining. Thank you very much Yukiko.

Yukiko:
Thank you very much for your review, Steven! I really appreciated it. It was a perfect day to walk under the beautiful cherry blossom trees in full bloom. I remember the view from the window of the restaurant and had a relaxing time with you. I'm so happy to hear that it made your trip memorable and enjoyable one. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Accommodating and fun ”

Yukiko was a knowledgable guide and very accommodating. We had a family of 4 who were with us and they were strict vegetarian. Yukiko was very flexible and she offered some really nice eateries during the tour since we had extra time. She also made us a perfectly timed schedule, giving us the opportunity to see what we wanted. All members of our group really enjoyed the tour.

Yukiko:
Thank you for the great review, Rohit! We visited some Shrines and temples and had local delicious foods on that day. I really enjoyed to talk about the influence from your country, especially from the viewpoints of religion. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed to visit all the places that you wanted to see. Thank you once again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!

“ Tokyo tour ”

I asked for cherry blossoms and seafood for my wife, and history and pop culture for me. All of the stops had a lot of history that I would not have known about and it was nice to talk with Yukiko. This is much better than any group tour and costs less for a family of 4.

Yukiko:
Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu, David! I'm glad that you learned more about each place we visited. Cherry blossom tress were absolutely beautiful in the garden and saw both historical and modern part of Japan. On the way, we encountered real Mario cart and many delicious foods. I hope you will come back Tokyo again to see more!

“ A personalized touch ”

Our day with Yukiko was more than I expected and the experience was truly personalized. Yukiko went out of her way to make sure our day included sights we wanted to see not just the normal Tokyo tourist spots. We communicated several times before the tour so she was able to have a sense of our interests. Most of all she was enthusiastic and informative. She was able to explain details of all our sights and helped us to understand the history of Tokyo. Pacing was great and she took care to make sure there were lifts and escalators available. She even advised us of spots to see on our own while in Tokyo. We couldn't have had a better experience.

Yukiko:
Thank you so much for your warm review, Ellen! I had a very good time with you and enjoyed talking about what you realized and surprised in Tokyo. I'm sure that you've seen more beautiful aspects of Japan and experienced something new and different. Japan has 4 distinctive seasons, I hope you will come back any other seasons again! Domo Arigatou!!

“ Excellent day with Yukiko as an introduction to Tokyo ”

Yukiko was a pleasure as a guide. We enjoyed that she arrived wearing a traditional kimono, and we appreciated the visits with her to Meiji Shrine, Rikugien to see the weeping cherry blossom tree, a fun Yakitori, a quick visit to a Cat cafe and Ueno Park for more cherry blossoms. Yukiko was kind and flexible, adapted to the needs of our kids (9,15,18) and arranged things on the fly as the weather turned. She brought extra umbrellas just in case, and provided great information and guidance along the way.

Yukiko:
Thank you for your kind review, Randy! As it was cold and partially rain, we modified former itinerary. I'm glad that it could meet the needs of your kids. I had a very good time with your family as well. Thank you once again for choosing me as your tour guide. Domo Arigatou!!
