What to Expect

Tokyo has a lot of attractions!! However, it may be difficult for international tourists to look around the city for a limited amount of time on their own. This tour is designed for first-timers to see some of the most popular tourist spots effectively within several hours.

I will take you to some of my best, favorite places in Tokyo, such as the lively Tsukiji Fish Market, the old temple Sensoji, Mecca of fashion Harajuku, and breathtaking city view from Tokyo Tower....etc. On the tour you can absorb various aspects of old and modern culture in Tokyo in just one day.
After the tour, you will get to know the overview of the transportation systems in Tokyo. That will help you to look around the city on your own for the rest of your stay.

*The itinerary can be changed according to your interest or preference.

“ TOKYO DAY TOUR FOR FAMILY ”

We enjoyed immensely our tour of Tokyo with Riko designed to keep our 2 teen age boys interested.

Riko:
Dear Linda, Thank you so much for sending the review for me. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me! Riko

“ A fun, informative tour ”

We (my adult son and I) had a great day tour with Riko. She worked hard to put together an itinerary that matched our interests. We covered a lot of ground in Tokyo, from cherry blossoms to samurai to Izakaya to Manga. Riko was informed, kind, and fun. We learned a lot from Riko, from Shinto shrine customs and mores to the competitive nature of Japanese moms making bento box lunches for their school children to navigating the subway. It was a fun, informative tour. We were well prepared to spend the rest of the week exploring Tokyo on our own.

Riko:
Dear Paul, Thank you very much for having me as your guide the other day. I'm happy to know you enjoyed the tour with me. You probably got used to Tokyo now and can explore the city on your own. But if you have a chance to come back to Tokyo, please let me know. I would like to show you some other hidden sites around. That would be great! Anyway, thank you once again for sending the lovely review for me. Say hello to your son!! Riko

“ Tokyo tour--full day ”

We had a wonderful time with Riko. She is an awesome guide and spoke excellent English. Our day was busy and we saw many great sights. We happen to be at the temple when they were having a celebration with geisha performers present and at the shrine--they had a children's kabuki show! We were even lucky enough to see 1 cherry blossom tree with a few blooms :) One of the highlights was going to Tsukiji market and tasting/buying the different foods--one of the few places in Tokyo where it's okay to eat while you're walking. Riko was very patient with helping us to navigate the busy subways--she made sure we were able to keep up with her and also gave us ideas on what to do on our own the following day. I would highly recommend her tours and will definitely try to book her again if we're in Tokyo in the future.

Riko:
Dear Angela, Thank you so much for taking time to post such a lovely review on our tour. I'm happy to know you enjoyed the tour with me. I also enjoyed accompanying the three of you very much. Yes, we were very lucky to see some unexpected events such as festival on that day. If you have a chance to come to Japan again, please let me know. if I can see you and show you around again, that would be great!! Thank you again, Angela!! RIKO

“ Kamakura with Riko ”

Last week we took a wonderful all-day excursion with Riko to Kamakura. Riko promptly met us at our hotel and led us to our train to Kamakura. During the train ride, she provided us information on the area and a historical background. She discussed what we would be visiting. Riko was a wealth of information and very professional. I am grateful for her services as I realized that we wouldn't be able to maneuver the local buses and trains so efficiently. I am especially grateful on how considerate she was and paced to tour to our capabilities. I would highly recommend Riko as a top notch guide.

Riko:
Dear Charles, Thank you so much for posting the wonderful review on our tour. I'm glad to know you were satisfied with my service. Since it was raining, I was wondering if you might catch a cold after the tour. It seems that you were all right. it was nice meeting you and your sweet wife. I hope to see the two of you again some time soon. Please take care and I wish you all the best. Thank you again,Charles!! Riko
