What to Expect

This tour covers most of the very popular sightseeing spots in Tokyo after taking a panoramic view of the Tokyo Metropolitan area.
You can enjoy Japanese traditional elaborate architecture through the tour of Meiji-jingu, Imperial Palace and Sensoji Temple, and you will obtain general idea about Japanese history, religion and culture. You may feel a kind of spirituality of the Japanese people.
You can also enjoy the atmosphere of the Edo period at Nakamise shopping street where there are many souvenir shops selling various traditional Japanese goods.

I play the Sanshin together with Okinawan folk songs. It is a guitar-like three stringed traditional musical instrument.
If you are interested in this traditional music, please feel free to ask me to play. Maybe I show you my Sanshin play at Karaoke-box.

“ Avo if this guide ”

One of the worst tours we have ever had.Yoshi gave us very little information and his English was very poor.we were unable to visit the Vulcan I because of heavy traffic but no alternative was offered.we asked to go to a market but were taken to a supermarket Finally he could not even take us to a proper money changerA complete waste of of money, avoid this guide

YOSHI:

I feel sorry that you couldn't enjoy the Kagoshima tour. As regards your review, I would like the following comments; -We made the tour in accordance with the contents of the voucher , omittIng Sakurajima island, which you agreed. -I showed you to the money exchange machine which you did not use because exchange rates were not shown on the machine.Although you preferrd to exchange at the counter of the shop, we couldn't find such place mainly because it was a holiday. -The place we visited last was one of the popular shopping sites in Kagoshima, not a supermarket. Anyway it is regretted you were not satisfied with the tour. Yoshi
