・Let's start our night by gazing out over the sea of lights - Tokyo's night view.
・Then we head to a lively district, Ebisu with endless choices of Izakaya.

“ No better way to be introduced to Tokyo! ”

When I was planning my Tokyo trip, my original goal was to discover everything on my own. At the last minute I decided to do a half day tour (plus one hour) as an orientation. I am so glad that I did. Eriko was so helpful in not only showing me around Tokyo but also providing additional information for the rest of my stay. After meeting in my hotel lobby, we went to the Fish Market that was nearby. While I could have walked and saw this on my own, Eriko provided historical and present information that I would not have known otherwise. She was also helpful in communicating with the merchants. From the market we attended a ceremony at a Buddhist temple. By knowing to get there early, we were able to walk around and see the temple as well as preparation for the ceremony while explaining what I would see. This inside information is the value of a guide and because this was not a group tour, I could ask questions and dialogue as needed without feeling like I was holding up others. The weather prevented visiting the Imperial Palace and Garden, but we modified our plans to visit indoors locations. We visited a standing sake bar, where I was able to try different types of sake and even had a great conversation and photos with a couple of local residents. The remainder of the tour was spent in Akihabara area. This allowed me to see old and new video games (both in stores and arcades) as well as browse the many anime related stores. I also learned about the many different types of unique cafes in the area. During my tour I got some wonderful photos including photos that Eriko was kind enough to take of me. The great thing is while this tour was based on things I wanted to see, I was also exposed to things along the way that I may never have thought of or seen. One of many examples of this was when Eriko pointed out the yellow lines along sidewalks and intersections being a resource for blind citizens to navigate because there are not many service dogs. I probably would not have noticed this without it being pointed out. In a future visit, I would not hesitate to book with Eriko again, because it would be completely different yet I know that I would gain more knowledge. There are different types or tours that are tailored to your interests. I chose a couple of destinations and trusted Eriko to show me other places that I may not have learned about on Google.
