What to Expect

Tired of Tokyo's busy streets? Then let's enjoy Tokyo like locals by Toden Streetcar! "Toden Arakawa-sen(line)" is a streetcar system running through the northern area of Central Tokyo where there is a nostalgic atmosphere. Along this line, there are various spots, such as temples and shrines, old shopping streets, parks, Japanese gardens and more. By using this line, let's enjoy strolling the town. This is a flexible tour that you could choose 3-5 spots of your interest along the line. Some of the attractions are: Kishimojin Shrine in Zoshigaya (It enshrines Kishimojin, a goddess who protects children, Zoshigaya Cemetery (There are many graves of notable people), Sugamo Togenuki Jizoson Temple & Sugamo shopping street (Sugamo has been popular for elderly people and called "Grandma's Harajuku". Recently it's also popular for young generations for its uniqueness.), Asukayama Park (Historical park famous for seasonal flowers and plants and the lowest mountain in Tokyo with the height of 25.4 meter), Oji Shrine, Oji Inari Temple , Arakawa Yuen (Tiny & nostalgic local amusement park) and "Joyful Minowa Shopping Arcade" (400 meter-long local shopping street with a history of more than 60years)...

“ Wonderful tour guide! ”

We had a wonderful time with Kazue. She was extremely helpful prior to our trip by helping us decide what to see while in Tokyo. She was a lot of fun and extremely knowledgeable. She made our trip memorable. Thank you Kazue!

Kazue:
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Kelly! It was great meeting you. I already miss all of you a lot! I hope you fully enjoyed the tour and the rest of your stay in Japan. I wish all the best to you and your family :)

“ When I told her I want to go to the school I attended as a child, she located it and initiated a call to them and then forward to me the web address. ”

It was a wonderful day. It began at the school I attended in K-2 grades and the the Dean of Admissions gave us an hour long tour and showed me the building where I would have had classes. It was rich. Then we visited a park near by that she thought was lovely and I probably went to as a child. On the way I spotted a pastry shop so we digressed for a treat and coffee. And walked thru the neighborhood of Hiro-o. Then we went to the Japanese Traditional Crafts Aoyama Square that I said I want to see as I love to see pottery and crafts of a country. Had a wonderful lunch along the way and then went to the gardens of the Imperial Palace and concluded with going to a big toy story for gifts for grandchildren. It was a fun, delightful day with Kazue who had a good listening hear and suggestions for what interests me.

Kazue:
Thank you for the review, Terry! It was great that you could visit the school you attended. Hope your grandchildren like what you got in Tokyo. Please send my best regards to your friend too :)

“ Our customised tour in Tokyo with Kazue! ”

We had the most amazing day with Kazue during our tour in Tokyo! She is very friendly, polite and we really enjoyed our day with her visiting Tokyo! We contacted Kazue on her availability before arriving in Japan and she was very prompt to respond with ideas on how to customise our tour. After a few emails our plan was set and ready for our one-day (8hrs) tour of Tokyo. She introduced us to must-see areas, shrines/temples and food of Tokyo. The fact that she speaks perfect English, made our life so much easier when we needed a translator into Japanese. She made the first day of our honeymoon very special!

Kazue:
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Panos! I was honored to be the guide for the first day of your honeymoon. It was great that you let me know what you would expect on this tour in advance, which helped me a lot to understand your needs and suggest the itinerary. For me as well, it was an unforgettable, special tour. I'm happy to meet both of you and hope we can see each other again. Wishing you both a happily ever after!

“ Day trip to Kamakura ”

Kazue was so gracious and kind. We took a day trip together from Shinjuku to Kamakura. Communication prior was great. We connected on a messaging app which made discussing the trip and our meeting place much easier. She kindly met me at the train station closest to me, and she guided me through the temples and shrines of Kamakura. We shared great conversation together. She was very attentive to my needs on the tour, and she wanted to make sure that I was seeing all the historical landmarks I wanted to see in the area. She took me to a great local restaurant for lunch, and we tried different local foods over the course of the tour. Kazue was so great, and you could not go wrong with her as your guide. Thanks Kazue for helping make my trip to Japan so great!

Kazue:
Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Terrell! So many memories just in one day... lovely sceneries from the Enoshima Island, beautiful architectures and gardens, foods like manju, shrimp and octopus cracker & soba noodles... As your omikuji was "daikichi (best luck - it's truly rare!)", I wish you all the success, happiness, and joy in life!!

“ Great guide with pleasant nature ”

Kazue was very sweet and pleasant. She helped us cover a lot of the city in a day. Her English was very good so she was able to communicate with us easily. She also helped us make reservations for a restaurant and was very flexible with helping us plan the itinerary. We would definitely recommend her.

Kazue:
Thank you so much for kind words, Jasmine. It was great to meeting both of you! I hope you fully enjoyed your vacation in Japan. You must be busy after you get back home... please take care!
