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.

“ Terrific Tokyo with Riko ”

Okay, so if you have a husband and two adult children traveling with you that all have very different interests, then Riko is the guide for you. Our four day tour was an unforgettable experience! Riko made navigating hectic Tokyo not only a breeze but tons of fun. We were satisfied with points of interest from Imperial gardens and Shinto shrines to cat cafes and coffee shops. The stress free trip and Riko's attention to detail was immaculate including a day trip to Mt. Fuji with a private driver. Riko is not only a fantastic tour guide, but we are honored to call her our friend! Thank you Riko!!

“ Great tour! ”

We had a really nice tour with Riko. She was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot we may not have with other tours. Was very accommodating, and wanted to make sure we were able to see what we wanted. Is very responsive to emails and helped us with ideas before we arrived. Highly recommend the tour.

“ Best day we spent in Tokyo! ”

This was without a doubt the best excursion we had planned while in Tokyo for a short trip. Riko was so fun, personable and easy to talk to. She is incredibly knowledgeable about historical and cultural experiences in Japan - and she was so easy going ( we wanted to adventure without a plan or agenda) and she was right there to answer questions and make awesome suggestions and giving us great tips for navigating the city (everything from eating to using the subways). We booked her for our first day in Tokyo and she gave us an awesome tour with highlights that included traditional Japanese customs at shrines as well, basic knowledge to use the rail and subway systems. It was an exceptional experience and we consider her a friend and would highly recommend her and plan to use her again when we visit again! Thank you Riko! Cari and Olivia

“ Wonderful memories for a lifetime! ”

I was a solo traveler with a brief stay in Tokyo. I decided on he private tour with public transportation because I wanted to gain familiarity with the trains here. Fortunately, Riko was available on at day and I selected her. Great choice! She met me at my hotel and we discussed the plan for our 8 hour tour. Riko is truly a professional. Her expertise in in the historical and cultural significance of the places we visited was very impressive. She has a wonderful personality, very friendly, and pleasant to be with. I can go on and on about how enjoyable my day tour was but I encourage you to schedule with Riko and discover for yourself and you'll have wonderful memories for a lifetime!

“ Great, customized tour of Tokyo! ”

Riko was very knowledgeable and customized a full day tour around the types of sites we were interested in. We learned so much from her about how to get around Tokyo that we were able to find our own way around much better the next day. Next time we'll book her for two days instead of just one!
