Resumen

This tour covers my recommendations in Tokyo. Please choose 2-3 places from the list first, and I may add some attractive spots near your choices if possible and make an itinerary according to your health condition and interests. If you have other places you want to go, please feel free to ask me.

Que esperar de este tour

Every tourist has his or her own preferences and needs. For example, my 76-year-old mother is a very out-going person and still loves to travel in spite of the artificial joint embedded in her ankle. She is vigorous in mind but can no longer walk as fast as people around her. But we can enjoy traveling by considered arrangement. Also, I have been astounded at the allergic reaction of my friend who is allergic to crustaceans. We weren’t aware that shrimps were used for making soup stock of the ramen we ate. That experience made me more careful about food for people who have some allergy. Please feel free to tell me anything you worry about. Careful preparation makes you feel free from any anxiety and brings you wonderful travel memories
On the other hand, some people may have a strong urge to walk around Tokyo at their own pace and visit some places of their particular interests without being constrained by others. Why don’t we make a special itinerary together? It’s my pleasure to help you appreciate deep attractions in Japan.

Walking, Shopping and Culture:
1. Omotesando, Aoyama and Roppongi district: a street lined with zelkova trees on both sides that provides a relaxing atmosphere. It is also lined with refined shops including brand shops, cafés, as well as restaurants. Let’s enjoy walking in the Minami Aoyama district to Roppongi! (1.5km form Omotesando to The National Art Center in Roppongi)
-The Nezu Museum in Aoyama: popular among foreigners not only for its collection but also its amazing garden.
-The National Art Center in Roppongi: designed by the famous architect, Kisho Kurokawa. The restaurant and café in this building are also fantastic!

2. Ginza: streets lined with good restaurants and a high-end shopping area. New landmarks have been built here recently.
-KABUKIZA Tower: office tower that emphasizes traditional Japanese aesthetics, built adjacent to the Kabukiza

But do you know that Asakusa-jinja Shrine is in the same grounds? You can learn about the coexistence of Buddhism and Shintoism here. You can buy traditional Japanese souvenirs at the shopping arcade called Nakamise.

-Ameyoko (short for Ameya-yokocho) is famous for its extremely cheap seasonal goods and other wares such as cosmetics, shoes, sporting goods, leather jackets and jeans.

9. Kiyosumi-Shirakawa: old town with several popular coffee shops, temples and shrines, and a famous Kiyosumi-garden, which is one of the greatest masterpieces in the gardens in Tokyo.

10. Shibamata: Taishakuten Temple may not be so widely known to foreign tourist, but it’s been popular among Japanese people because the temple and the approach lined with many long-established shops used to be a set of the movie titled ‘Tora-san’, which has been loved by the Japanese for many years.

11. Tokyo Sky Tree: the highest communications and observation tower in Japan, whose observation decks command a breath-taking panorama of Tokyo. There are also a planetarium, an aquarium, and a lot of shops and restaurants, so people from all age groups can enjoy there.

- KITTE: a commercial facility run by Japan Post. You can enjoy shops that let you experience Japanese craftsmanship as well as restaurants that serve delicious food from across Japan.
-Imperial Palace: The Edo Castle, formerly the Tokugawa Family’s residence, became the Imperial Palace as the Emperor moved to Tokyo from the Kyoto Imperial Palace after the Meiji Restoration.

Anime, Games, Comics, and new fashion trend:

It’s also a sanctuary for anime fans now because of the scene of a popular anime “Love Live”. Adjacent to the Akihabara district, you can find omikuji sold in a capsule toy style.

14. Nakano, a Sanctuary for Otaku (geek, nerd, or freak); enjoy Japanese sub-culture fully at Nakano Broadway. If you love a certain anime character, you can even make your cell-phone case printed your favorite one. Anyway, everything Otaku want is here

Shrines and Temples:

“ Two fantastic mornings in Tokyo! ”

My clients, Mohan Ramachandran and his family, had a wonderful tour of Tokyo with Mayumi. On the first day, they visited the highlights of East Tokyo and on the second day, the key sights of West Tokyo. But more than seeing the sights, it was the introduction to Japan, and Japanese culture and life, that they appreciated the most. Being the first two days of a two week trip in Japan, Mayumi made them feel comfortable in Tokyo.

“ Super helpful and great tour ”

We were in Tokyo for less than a day and Mayumi was really helpful in helping us navigate the city! It was raining when we went so we didnt want to do too much. But we did want to eat. She took us to the outer market of Tsukiji Which was the highlight of our day. We tried delicious seafood. She recommended this white strawberry which was really sweet. Then for lunch we had soba and some really good tonjiru. She also took us to a mall and helped us with shopping for some souvenirs! She also helped us get around the busy tokyo station. She is kind and caring. She shared her umbrella when ours broke! She was a great tour guide and we were happy she was there to help us!

MAYUMI:

Thank you for your writing such a kind and warm review, Maybelle. It was a really impressive day. Though we had rain that was not a slight one, we enjoyed our limited time as much as possible. I can't forget the king crab and the big shrimp we ate in the rain. That's quit an experience! I'm happy you remember the name, tonjiru. Let's do another food tour next time! I have a lot of places that foodies must visit.I can't wait for the next opportunity I'll be with you. Thank you again for everything you shared with me during the tour!!!

“ Sushi market ”

She gives a good background and understanding

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for the prompt review in the middle of your busy travel, Jacob. Your questions gave me an opportunity to rethink our culture and history even deeply. I'll keep looking into those subjects so that I could give my clients better understanding about this country. Hope your travel to other parts of Japan will be filled with beautiful memories. Thank you again.

Well, all I can say is wow! Mayumi is amazing. I contacted her wanting to propose to my partner on Mt Takao. Happy to report it all went well! Haha. Thanks to Mayumi our day was perfect. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thanks so much again Mayumi!

MAYUMI:

Hi Drew, I was so happy to be with you on such an important day. Mt Takao was the perfect choice to do your thing, wasn't it? I can't forget the beautiful cherry blossoms and your smile when you reported it all went well. Can you imagine how I was nervous while waiting for you to come back? Anyway, I'd really appreciate this great opportunity given by you. Please give my regards to Azazi. May your marriage life be filled with love and happiness forever.
