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.

“ Excellent and Informative ”

RIko guided our family of four through several Tokyo highlights. She was extremely knowledgeable and shared so much information not only about the history of the sights we were touring that day, but also about overall life in Tokyo. We really appreciated her pleasant manner and flexibility with getting us to where we needed to be in a timely manner. Her choice of tempura restaurant was also excellent. I highly recommend Riko as a tour guide.

Riko:
Dear Lavaya, Thank you very much for having me as your guide and also sending your review! I'm grad to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. But the tour may have been a little too short to see many of the Tokyo's attractions. Please come again and see more charms of this city. If I can see you again, that would be great. Thank you once again, I hope you will enjoy your trip ahead! Riko

“ Amazing tour guide!!! ”

As this was my family's first trip to Japan I decided at the last minute to hire a tour guide to help acclimate us to the city. The house we were renting was off the beaten path and somewhat hard to find. I was concerned how we were going to hook up her. Riki was great from the beginning when she came and picked us up to start our tour. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything you could possibly want to know, showed us how to use the subway and how to get around, was very flexible and amazingly energetic. The tour we took was for eight hours and she had a list of the sights that she thought we would enjoy. From shrines to the fish market to a department store and so so much more. We could have done only her one day tour and I would have felt we had taken in the flavor of what Tokyo is. Yet even with what she had planned when my boys wanted to go shopping in some one of a kind clothing stores she knew where they were and took them around until they went everywhere they wanted to go. We also stopped and spent probably an hour at a festival that was occurring on the street. She was fun and made the trip very enjoyable. At the end of the tour she took us all the way back home! I cannot recommend her highly enough!! Thank you again Riko!

Riko:
Dear Michele, Thank you very much for posting the wonderful review for me! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour and are satisfied with my service. I myself enjoyed touring you all and sharing many things with you. I hope that your daughter got better now and all family members will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thank you again, Michele. Hope to see all again!! 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
