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!

My friend and I booked Yukiko for a one day tour. Leading up to the tour, Yukiko was very responsive and helpful through our online messages. She was accommodating to our needs, patient, and polite. She was prepared with a binder that had pictures to supplement her explanations of history. My friend had expressed a liking to Monchhichi and Yukiko emailed me a few days after our tour to inform my friend of a giant Monchhichi statue she saw at a museum. I thought that was very sweet of her to think of us even after the tour ended. Yukiko also handmade use origami coasters with a thank you note. Overall a great experience!
We had a rough idea of things we wanted to see and do during our day with Yukiko; things like "do something cultural," and "see amazing architecture." Yukiko was extremely responsive and helpful, and came up with great ideas we could choose from. On our tour day, Yukiko met us at our ryokan (traditional Japanese inn). We had a full fun day. Yukiko was a delight, answering all our crazy questions and guiding us through each venue. She even had historical information and little visual aids in a notebook prepared for us! Outstanding. Yukiko has a great, fun attitude, and her attention to detail is bar none. Our day tour with her was definitely a highlight of our trip, and I would book her again without hesitation.
The experience felt like a friend with enthusiasm and very familiar with the places, is showing us around Tokyo. My family and I were not helpless wanderers because of Yukiko's help and knowledge. The conversations, care and patience will be remembered and valued.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Tsukiji with Yukiko! Thank you very much!
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
