What to Expect

I think the best way to know Tokyo will be to visit both of East side and West side of Tokyo at one time. East side will show you traditional aspect of Tokyo. Of course, Tokyo station will be the mainstay of the assets. And, there will be much more there than meets the eye. Not so far from Tokyo sta. is located Asakusa & Nakamise which is almost a root of contemporary Tokyo. It will be a must to visit if you want to know Tokyo. Then, we will visit Imperial Palace Higashi-Gyoen. There, you will encounter the glorious remnant of Edo Shogunate which reined over Japan from 1600 to 1868 with the duration of 270 years. Samurai spirit which is still estimated highly among the Japanese is rooted in this regime.
By the way, at around here, we would like to have a lunch for the day. How about some restaurant located in Marunouchi area? It is not difficult to find out a good one because there are a lot of restaurants there for office workers. The selection will be left up to you. Even if you are a gourmet intensive person, there will be the one for you.
In the afternoon, we will move to West side of Tokyo to know about the new aspect of Tokyo. At first, we will visit Shinjuku area. Shinjuku has been developed as a new district which will support Tokyo Metropolitan Government. You will see a lot of high-rise buildings symbolizing the trend to catch up with the rapid progress of the world. Near Shinjuku sta. is located Meiji Jingu shrine, which is almost a sanctuary for us who live in the hassle and bustle of the city life. It will also tell you the big change which took place in 1868 in Japan and which symbolizes the modernization of Japan. Then, we will go to Harajuku and Omotesando street. You will be able to know there that a new trend of Japan now, especially in the field of fashion, is born here in this area. If time is permitted, I would like to take you to Shibuya area which is also designated as a town to support the development of Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Shibuya is really the town with the vigor. I would like to show you essence of the town.

I think the guide do not have sufficient knowledge on the place we are visiting and also the route. It is a waste of my time and should not be allowed to guide to places where he is not familiar. If he need to read the information given at the place of interest, I also can read and I don't need his service. TQ


Thank you for your review about our two days tour of Nagano. I was careless about skipping the information of Ueda castle to you. It is a long story, but I should have done. And one more, I and my driver feel deeply sorry for being delayed in arriving at the hotel because of making wrong choice of the route on the way back to the hotel.
