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!

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!

“ A great introduction to Japan ”

Yukiko is a wonderful guide. She communicates very well including before and during our tour. She gave us meaning to the places we visited. She showed expert knowledge throughout our tour. She showed great flexibility when we wanted to change our itinerary. Yukiko was the best introduction to Japan that anyone could experience. We highly recommend utilizing her talents and experiencing her wonderful personality.

Yukiko was very easy to communicate with, she provided an itinery for the day with timings in advance. What I particularly liked was when we went to a new location Yukiko walked through exactly what her plan was for the visit, what she intended to show you and how long it would take. My family particularly enjoyed the restaurant choice she made and the chance to eat as a local. All in all it was a very enjoyable and informative day.

My wife and I spent a great day with Yukiko. She's a very knowledgeable guide, a pleasant person and speaks very good English. If our schedule had been more accommodating we'd have booked her for a second day.
