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!

“ Kamakura highlights ”

We had such a lovely day with Yoko. She met us at the Yokohama Cruise Terminal and took us by train to Kamakura. She was very knowledgable and taught us alot about Japanese customs. We got to see alot more than we had planned which was a nice surprise. We had a lovely traditional Japanese lunch and we got back to the ship with time to spare so this took any stress away. Yoko went out of her way to accomodate our wishes.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for such a lovely review, Nicola! I had a lovely day with both of you in Kamakura. It was a very beautiful day and I was very glad that we could go to more places than we had planned. Thank you so much for your cooperation. Talking with you was fun and interesting, and I was pleased to have some similarities with you. I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope both of you come to Tokyo again in the near future and I can see you then.

“ Beautiful day in Japan with Yoko ”

Our party of four adults were privileged to spend the day with Yoko. This was our first time to visit Japan and we set up a tour through TripleLights to get an understanding of the city of Tokyo and to help us navigate the subway system. We couldn’t have been more pleased with Yoko’s wonderful assistance in caring for us as we traveled all over Tokyo with her expert guidance. Her knowledge of the Japanese culture and history was invaluable to getting to know the people of Japan. I highly recommend starting you trip this and way with Yoko as your guide.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your lovely review, Robert! I had a lovely day with all of you. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. That was a beautiful day after rainy days, I was pleased to help you explore Tokyo. We laughed a lot and I learned something new from you, which was memorable for me. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I hope you have enjoyed staying in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again and see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey.
