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.
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.

“ Three excellent tours with a very well informed guide ”

We spent three fantastic days with Hiroshi exploring contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and visiting Hakone. He was a well informed, interesting and engaging guide who was happy to answer all our random questions about life in Japan. Hiroshi was very organised and made sure that we saw lots of different places in the days we spent with him. He was also invaluable in the run up to the trip, giving us advice on money, travel arrangements and places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hiroshi as a guide.

Hiroshi:

Dear Sarah Thank you very much for your great review. I am very happy to find you spent good time with me. It was my first time to have a kid as my customer. The happiest thing for me was to see Pat's smile in any places. I hope my guiding supported him to know about Japan as well as you. Please make another chance to visit Japan and to meet again.

“ Perfect Day in Tokyo ”

Hiroshi outlined a plan for a day in Tokyo along the lines of our suggestions. He managed this perfectly and kept to the plan admirably. He was sensitive to our personal needs as well as answering all our questions in depth and with good humour. His English was excellent to the point that we did not notice he was Japanese. Hiroshi’s knowledge of Japanese history was first class, right through the Shogun era and modern times. We would commend him to you as a great guide with complete confidence. Martin and Robyn Johnson Sydney, Australia

Hiroshi:

Dear Martin and Robyn I am very happy to find you enjoyed a day in Tokyo with me. And thank you very much for very positive review about my guideing. If you have another chance to come to Japan, I am very please to spend time with you. Hope you will have great time in Australia. Best regards Hiroshi
