Shinjuku Station is the busiest station in the world. More than three million people get on and off at the station. It has several faces. Why don't you walk around this area?

What to Expect

When you enter a narrow alley, which is sandwiched between rows of small shops, you may be intrigued by the pleasant aroma of grilled chickens, grilled offal, ramen, and so on. Each shop is even big enough to seat less than ten persons. This area is called "Omoide Yokocho", meaning reminiscent backstreet.

“ Delightful day with Akira ”

Akira made our visit to Tokyo very special. He was a pleasure to deal with planning the day, and was very responsive to our wants and needs. I requested a tour of the Diet Building and he arranged it so we could see inside the beautiful building and the legislative chambers. Our visit to the Fish Market was an amazing experience and Akira guided us thru an excellent lunch at a market sushi bar. He helped us understand Japanese history, gardens and culture in a very interesting and enjoyable way. I cannot recommend him more highly. Should I be lucky enough to return to Tokyo, I would definitely want Akira as my guide.

“ Wonderful custom full day Tokyo tour ”

My family of four (including our boys, ages 11 and 13) plus our two friends had the pleasure of spending a full day in Tokyo with Akira. He planned the itinerary for the day and made great suggestions. My favorite part of the day was visiting the fish market. It was handy to have Akira with us because he knew how to get into the inner market, which was the best part, and he arranged a beautiful sushi lunch for us at a quiet restaurant just outside the market. My other favorite part of the tour was Akira's trivia questions and prizes - what a brilliant way to liven up the tour. Akira's English is perfect and he was very responsive on email. Highly recommend!

“ Excellent Guide ”

We had the pleasure of Akira's company for 2 days. My family and I went to Meiji, Asakusa, Harajuku, Kamakura and more. He was very accommodating and made sure everybody was comfortable and enjoying the sights. Thank you for sharing Japans history and traditions with us. The children especially enjoyed your quizes and prizes at end of the day. Communication with him before the tour started was great. Highly recommended! Hope to see you again soon.

“ Custom full day tour ”

Thank you for a wonderful day, Akira. We enjoyed going to Meiji Jingu Shrine and Sensoji Temple. Thank you for explaining the history, rituals and contrast between them. We very much enjoyed the gardens we went to and sharing time having tea and a sweet in the tea house. It is so wonderful that there are calm places for people to enjoy within Tokyo and also busy places to invigorate as well. Thank you so much for your hospitality, knowledge and guidance on our tour. We highly recommend your tours to others.

“ Wonderful guide! ”

We recently spent two days with Akira in and around Tokyo. He is a fantastic guide. We had private tours with our family of four (two teenage boys). Akira planned the tour and his advice was perfect. The sites included major temples and shrines and Akira was able to keep us engaged despite the long days. For English speakers, Akira speaks very fluent English. My boys throughly enjoyed spending time with him and enjoyed his fun quizzes with a prize for the winner at the end of the day. If you need a guide in Tokyo I highly recommend Akira!
