Tsukiji is an exciting place to visit to see different world from our normal life. There is only outer market and inner market which used to be a popular place for visitors was moved to a new place.
Outer market is for retailers and fun to see and you can find Japanese food culture. You can buy whatever you like and there are many restaurants to offer their own original dishes. If you like Tsukiji, you can spend easily 3 hours .
Ryogoku is another very exciting place in Tokyo. It is about 15 minutes by subway from Tsukiji. Ryogoku is famous for Sumo because there is an arena named "Ryogoku Kokugi-Kan" which is translated to Sumo Arena and where grand sumo tournament is held 3 times a year. In Ryogoku area, there are many kinds of sumo related restaurants and stores. In Tsukiji, everybody wishes to eat Sushi. Then In Ryogoku, "Chan-ko" which is a special food for Sumo wrestlers, is very popular. Some Chan-ko specialty restaurants are run by former professional Sumo wrestlers. And some restaurants have Sumo ring inside of the restaurants. Also, you can buy Sumo related souvenirs at specialty stores.
Inside of Ryogoku Kokugikan, there is a "Sumo museum" which is opened for public except grand sumo tournament period. You can see some special items actually used by sumo wrestlers.

Hiroshi is a very knowledgeable, a great communicator, easy to get along with and very accommodating to my wife & I. My wife has foot problems & it was easy to adjust our tour for her. We learned so much about Tokyo & Japan from Hiroshi. By the end of the day we felt we also had met a great man as well as a new friend, & if we get a chance to return we shall certainly ask for Hiroshi.

Hiroshi:

Dear Charles Thank you very much for the good evaluation about the tour. It was a great pleasure being with you and your wife. I hope you will have a great time with cruise and arrive home safely. It was my pleasure to be your guide and wish to have another chance to see you. Best regards Hiroshi

“ Wonderful guide for Kamakura shrines, temples, and gardens. ”

Excellent English. Patient and great listener and planner. Flexible for changes. Arranged just what we wanted. Low key cultural experience in Kamakura. Tea in Bamboo garden and veggie lunch served by monks were unique. He navigates public transport flawlessly.

Hiroshi:

Dear Sue and John Thank you very much for giving me a very nice review. The tour with you was very nice one. I always try to be very flexible to meet customers' wish. It is my style as a guide. I wish to be your guide if you come back to Japan again. Have a wonderful time. Best regards

“ Excellent guide ”

Hiroshi was an excellent guide. We took tours of the history museum of Edo/Tokyo and we were very impressed with his depth of knowledge and his insight. We also visited some local temples and the famous fish market. He continued his high level of teaching and have very useful insights into the culture as well. His English was also exemplary.

Hiroshi:

Dear Brannon Thank you very much for writing an excellent review of my tour. It was very enjoyable tour with your family. Unfortunately Sumo practice was not able to see but taking pictures with Sumo wrestler will be unforgettable memory for James. I would like to express my gratitude for listening my talk very sincerely during the tour. I hope memory of this tour will be shared with your family and friends and more people may come to Japan to become fan of Japan. Thank you very much to choose me as your guide and have a good flight back to your home. Best regards Hiroshi

“ A tour well worth the money ”

Although I had an initial problem meeting Hiroshi, he was worth the problem. Hiroshi was extremely knowledgeable about Yokohama in general and Japanese society and culture in particular. He was most willing to adapt the schedule to accommodate my requests about places to visit. I really enjoyed our lunch in Chinatown

Hiroshi:

Dear Judith Thank you very much for your comment. I enjoyed a tour with you in Yokohama. I am very happy to find you satisfied my service. I hope I can be your guide again. Thank you and Best regards
