このツアーで期待できること

Tokyo has a lot of sightseeing spots for foreign tourist. So, I narrowed them down to the following 8 spots for your options. If you are wondering where to go, book this tour.
1. Tsukiji Wholesale Market (Admission free)
This world largest fish market is dealing with various essential ingredients for Washoku or Japanese food, the UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. In the inner market, a lot of wholesale trading occurs including the well-known tuna auctions. With my guidance, you can enjoy learning on a variety of fish from all across Japan as well as feeling the vibrant atmosphere made by the sellers and buyers. At the outer market, where more than 400 food shops and restaurants stand side by side, you can enjoy shopping and tasting.
2. Hamarikyu Garden (Admission fee for adult: 300 yen)
This large historic garden was once the family garden of Tokugawa shoguns who governed Japan in the Edo period from the early 17th to the late 19th century. This is a typical Daimyo (Japanese feudal lord) garden with a tidal pond and two wild-duck hunting sites. Now, the garden is surrounded by skyscrapers of Shiodome business district, so you can enjoy not only the beauty of Japanese garden but also the intriguing contrast between the old and the new.
3. Sumida River Cruising (The fare from Hamarikyu to Asakusa: 740 yen)
Sumida River flows through Tokyo just like the Hudson in New York, the Seine in Paris and the Thames in London. We can take the boat cruising on Sumida River between Hamarikyu Garden or Tsukiji and Asakusa. From the boat, you can enjoy magnificent view of the Metropolis including Tokyo Skytree, Rainbow Bridge, and cherry blossoms along the bank in the season (the end of March to the beginning of April).
4. Asakusa (Admission free)
Asakusa has been the most popular sightseeing spot for tourists in Tokyo since Edo period. It has a long history and grew up around Senso-ji Temple, retaining much of the flavor of Edo, the old name of Tokyo. The Temple is dedicated to Kannon Bodhisattva, the Goddess of Mercy. It's a fun walk from the well-known Kaminari-mon Gate with its huge red lantern, along Nakamise Avenue, which is lined with small shops, to the temple. You can feel a blend of sacred and secular air in the historical town.
5. Tokyo Skytree (Admission fee for adult: 3,000 yen for 350 m deck, 4,000 yen for 450 m deck)
Tokyo Skytree, 634 meters in height, about twice taller than the Eiffel Tower, is the tallest broadcasting tower in the world. The external appearance of Tokyo Skytree is designed to have graceful curves called sori and mukuri using in the traditional Japanese buildings so that it harmonizes with the surrounding scenery. Two observation decks located at the heights of 350 meters and 450 meters above grounds offer spectacular 360-degree views of Tokyo.
6. Imperial Palace (Admission free)
The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace used to be the main site of the honmaru (main castle keep) of Edo Castle which was the center of Edo shogunate (feudal government) from the early 17th to the late 19th century. After the Meiji Restoration in 1868, the former site of Edo Castle became the new Imperial Palace. Today, none of the main buildings remain, but the moats, stone walls, some turrets of Edo Castle and Japanese-style gardens still survive intact. You can stroll in the garden as if you were the Shogun.
7. Meiji Jingu Shrine (Admission free)
Meiji Jingu Shrine is a Shinto shrine enshrined the Emperor Meiji and his consort Empress Shoken. It was founded in 1920 to commemorate their virtues and venerate them forever after their death. This shrine is always the most popular shrine in Japan to pay the first shrine visit of the year during the New Year, or Hatsumonde. More than 3 million worshippers descend on the shrine for Hatsumode. There often held wedding ceremonies on auspicious days. You may luckily see a wedding couple wearing traditional Japanese Kimono.
8. Ueno Park (Admission free)
Ueno Park was established as Japan’s first Western-style park in 1873 on the former ground of Kan’eiji Temple, which was the family temple of the ruling Tokugawa clan during the Edo Period from the early 17th to the late 19th century. As time went on, a zoological garden and many kinds of museum were constructed on the grounds. Today, more than 1,000 cherry trees line its central pathway. Ueno Park is a popular tourist attraction for a large number of cherry blossoms viewing parties in spring (from the end of March to the beginning of April).

Just choose 4 or 5 spots out of them for your tour, then I will arrange your itinerary. Of course, you can select any places you like other than those listed above.

“ Fantastic tour to see a lot of Tokyo in one day ”

Shoji was very communicative from the time I booked the tour. I only had one free day in Tokyo, and this was exactly what I was looking for. He guided me to several sights around the city and gave interesting and insightful historical and cultural context. I really enjoyed taking the public transportation to get a glimpse of life in Tokyo. Having Shoji lead me around saved so much time and stress. I highly recommend Shoji!

Shoji:

Thank you very much for your kind words. I was really encouraged by your words. I had a great time with you on the tour and learned a lot from you. I hope you will be a big fun of Japan and will come again in another season. Be careful of the strong typhoon!

“ This was my first trip to Tokyo Japan, and I felt accommodated to and welcomed. ”

Shoji was my introduction to Japan. From the onset, his kind demeanor put me right at ease. Shoji got me to where I needed to be, and I will always be grateful for him being available to me in short notice. The next time I visit, I'll keep Shoji in mind.

Shoji:

Thank you very much for your kind words, Gary. They really encourage me. I look forward to seeing and guiding you again next time.

“ A very full day ”

Shoji was a great tour guide. He showed us things we needed to see all over Tokyo. He covered a lot of ground and taught us how to use subways, pray at the temples, and order at restaurants. He was nice and fun. Some other tour guides may be better at knowing the history of places and symbolic significance. But if those things are not important to you, Shoji knows the city well and how to navigate it.

Shoji:

Thank you very much for your kind words that really encourage me. I had quite a fun time with you. I hope we can meet again in Japan or Texas some time soon.

“ Shimizu Port Tour 2 ”

I gave Shoji quite an ambitious list of sights that roughly followed his Shimizu Tour #2. In order to try and get us everywhere, he came to pick us up at the cruise terminal 20 minutes early in case we could debark early, which we were able to do. All during the day he made sure we were comfortable and happy. He arranged all kinds of little side trips and experiences once he discovered that we were interested in doing things off the beaten path. He is an excellent and experienced guide. I and my friends are well travelled and generally hire guides and private cars wherever we go. Shoji is one of a kind. You will not he disappointed if you hire him!! I wish I could have taken him with us as we continued our travels in Japan.
