What to Expect

On this tour, you'll visit a Shinto Shrine, Japanese garden and Buddhist temple. You'll enjoy traditional Tokyo.

I’ll meet you at Harajuku station.
We’ll go to Meiji Shrine. Meiji Shrine has bountiful nature and it’s an oasis of serenity. Inside the precincts, you may forget that the place is located in Tokyo.
Then we’ll move to Komagome by JR. We’ll stroll around Rikugien garden. Rikugien garden is one of the most beautiful Japanese gardens in Tokyo.
The garden is beautiful especially in autumn when there are many colored leaves.
After that we’ll go to Sensouji temple in Asakusa. Sensouji temple is the oldest temple in Tokyo. I believe you’ll enjoy the hustle and bustle of Asakusa area.
If you'd like to buy some traditional Japanese souvenirs, Nakamise shopping street is one of the best place to go!

Hello, I'm Yoko. I was born and brought up in Ashikaga, Tochigi prefecture (80 km north from Tokyo) and I've lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years.
I love traveling, both overseas and inside Japan. After I visited other countries and saw many local cultures there, I realized that Japan has a variety of unique cultures with a lot of tourist attractions.
I hope you enjoy your stay in Japan. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

“ Guide and friend ”

Yoko is always smiling and she engaged our whole family including our 3 boys ages 4,6, and 8. She made us feel like we were being guided by a friend. She speaks excellent English and is eager to find answers for every question you may have. She used her iPad to give us details for things we wanted to do on other days. We enjoyed her guidance as we toured temple, shopping and learned how to use the trains. Her recommendation for lunch was great We will remember her warmly.

“ Beautiful introduction to Tokyo ”

We had the great pleasure of having Yoko-san as our guide for a half day tour on the morning of our arrival in Tokyo. She showed us some beautiful places, taught us some wonderful things about Japanese history and culture and took us to the most incredible ramen-ya for lunch. What a wonderful beginning to our adventure in Japan. Thank-you Yoko-san, you are a treasure 🙏🏻🇯🇵❤️

“ Visit to Kamakura ”

I had booked a trip to Kamakura for 3 people and I ended up getting sick last minute. Yoko took my elderly parents who are in their 70s to Kamakura on her own and treated them so kindly and slowed down the pace of the tour for them. Was so glad that we had Yoko as a guide!
