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!

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 :)
We really enjoy our Tokyo trip with Yukiko, she is experienced in sharing with us the history of the tourist attraction places and spoke in fluent English, we appreciate her helpful service in arranging our baggage storage and express bus to Narita airport. We will see you Yukiko again, wishing you and your family happy new year
Excellent time seeing the sights with Yukiko. She was very knowledgeable and I had an excellent time. Well worth the money.
Guide Yukiko responds quickly to requests from clients. She answered one of my e-mails within the hour. She is very efficient and carries photos, maps, descriptions of places and calculates distances to be covered. She will also give estimates of taxi fares, if necessary. She will dress in Kimono at least once, to provide an opportunity for photos with a 'Geisha.' Her concern for the safety of elderly clients engenders warmth. Yukiko san is a wonderful person to have as your Guide.
Yukiko was a great guide for our Tsukiji market tour. She was very informative and have great knowledge of the market. She also recommend many delicious food at the outer market which we enjoyed tremendously. I would recommend Yukiko to anyone who wants to tour Tsukiji market.
