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.
Next to Ryogoku kokugi-kan, there is a huge building which is Edo Tokyo museum. This museum is specialized for 17th century and after. This is a great place to know people's life in Edo which is current Tokyo and you will find many new facts in this museum. If you are interested in Japanese history, you can easily spend 3 hours or more. Even you are not familiar with Japanese history, you can enjoy various displays and recognize the difference in life from Western world.
After Edo Tokyo museum, we will visit a newly opened Sumida Hokusai museum which locates 10 min. walk from Edo Tokyo museum.

“ Day trip from Yokohama ”

If you are looking for an alternative to a cruise ship tour, do not hesitate to hire Hiroshi. He is an excellent guide! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip from Yokohama to Tokyo. Hiroshi handled every detail for us and he provided insights and engaging conversation throughout the day. I learned so much from Hiroshi and really appreciated his careful planning and attention to detail. If you want to explore independently but are unsure of how to use public transportation, hire Hiroshi :)

Hiroshi:

Dear Suzanne Thank you very much for your review of my tour. As you enjoyed, I enjoyed a lot with you. As a guide,knowing the public transportation is a basic but an important element. I am sure you spent excellent time in your cruise. If you have chance to visit Japan again, I wish to be your guide again. Best regards Hiroshi

“ First visit to Tokyo ”

We were a group of four and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day with Hiroshi, visiting the Meiji Shrine, the temple in Azakusa and the Edo Museum. Hiroshi was so knowledgeable and this made our day so much more interesting. The weather was rather wet and he suggested visiting the Edo Museum to learn more about the Edo era, rather than an outside visit. This was an excellent way to learn about this period of time and we all felt that we had learnt so much about Japanese culture and the development of Tokyo. Hiroshi was so helpful prior to our visit , with lots of information about places we are to visit and this has made our holiday in Japan so enjoyable. Would recommend Hiroshi to anyone looking for an interesting visit to major sites in Tokyo. Thank you from us all.

Hiroshi:

“ Tokyo evening tour for Cruise ship passengers ”

Hiroshi was very frendly, polite and very good English. Our cruise arrive afternoon to Yokohama and we had quite limited time that evening. We meet Hiro after ship shuttle bus transportation to Sakuragi-cho station. He quickly guided our small group through public transportation adventure in Tokyo area. Three locations, Metropolitan government office building observation deck in Shinjuku, Shibuya famous street crossing and sunset time Roppongi Hills before return to Yokohama and to the ship.

Hiroshi:

Dear Jani. Thank you for your very positive review comment. Yes, it was a short trip but I am glad you enjiyed it. Please come to Japan again with longer time. I wish to be your guide again. Thank yiu and best regards Hiro

“ Outstanding custom tour of Tokyo ”

We are so happy we chose Hiroshi for our tour of Tokyo. We were on a Millenium cruise of Japan and decided the ship’s excursion didn’t match our wish list. Hiroshi met us at the dock in Yokohama and traveled with us by train and metro to Tokyo. That morning Tokyo had heavy showers, so he instantly altered our agenda to go to two very interesting museums, one on Sumo wrestling and the other on Edo-Tokyo. When the rain stopped at noon and we resumed our agenda. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in a traditional restaurant, free of tourists. Tokyo’s metro system is huge, modern and a wonderfully efficient way to see Tokyo, but it is complex and we were so happy to have Hiroshi lead the way. He is fun, has a great sense of humor, and gave great insight into the culture and history. He ... read more
