Overview

If you want to experience a real Japan, I would recommend you 2 major sightseeing spots, Tsukiji and Asakusa. Tsukiji fish market represents for Japanese food culture, Sushi. Asakusa represent for Buddhism culture, Sensouji temple. I am sure you would have unforgettable experience in this tour!

What to Expect

I show you many Tsukiji food at many spots. I will change Tsukiji town into one big restaurant, as if Tsukiji market would be buffet style restaurant, all you can eat. You can taste fresh tuna and seafood as you like.
First of all, you can enjoy fat tuna. 70% of store in the market deal with tuna, because tuna is king of Sushi.
Then you can taste oyster, crab and sea urchin. You can eat not only sashimi (raw fish), but also grill ones in street stand.
Not only you can taste local Japanese food, but also you can learn Japanese food culture.In Tsukiji, you can see how to preserve the freshness of fish, what is a secret of Sushimi. For example Sushi knife at Tsukiji is extremely reliable and super strong. If you are looking for good knife, Sushi knife is so good.
If it's sunny, I will take you to beautiful Japanese garden, next to Tsukiji market. At teahouse there, you can drink powdered Japanese tea (Matcha), used at tea ceremony.

Asakusa is traiditonal fancy town, and if you are looking for Japanese traditional items as suvenior ( folding fan, Chopstick, wind bell Japanese lantern and so on), it has big shopping street good enough for you. Then you can see Sensouji temple, very famous big lantern at the gate of this temple. If you have an interest in wearing Japanese traditional clothes (Kimono), you can use the service of rental kimono (3000 yen).
Please enjoy Japanese cultural experince in Tokyo !

“ Great Experience! ”

This was an amazing day trip! Guchi was kind enough to meet us at the hotel and show us how to use the train system. Learning the train alone was invaluable! The walk with Guchi up Mt Takao was fun and exciting. He had us try local treats and was very knowledgeable about the mountains history and customs. We were very lucky to be visiting on a special day and see the Monks blessing the shops and restaurants along the path. We highly recommend Guchi as a tour guide and the Mt Takao excursion! Thank you Guchi for a great day!

“ A Great Choice ”

My wife and I are extremely happy we chose Hiroshi as our guide while on our first visit to Tokyo. His English is excellent. He is bright, personable, and quite well informed about all aspects of present day and past history of this fascinating city.

“ Great Time ”

We had a memorable time in Japan with Guchi as our guide. He’s easy to understand and flexible. We were very pleased with the lunch & hands-on experiences like weaving & riding the Rickshaw. Highly recommended guide.

“ Hiroshi - an excellent guide and an excellent guy ”

I arranged to meet Hiroshi on my first full day in Tokyo, mainly as I knew I would struggle getting around the city. I went down to the hotel lobby as arranged where he was waiting for me - armed with a selection of maps and guides (in English). We sat and chatted for a few minutes before setting off into the city. He showed me both my local subway station and my local JR railway station, indicating I'd need to know the location of these before going further afield. Then he took me to several key landmarks in the city. I chose the Triple Lights agency as the website was clear, and all the guides had short introductory videos. I chose Hiroshi (Guchi) as I knew we would get along. I was right to make this decision, Guchi was everything I needed and more. He knew his way around, he knew his city and its history. He was also a decent guy who was good company for the whole time I was with him. So I thoroughly recommend Hiroshi if you are visiting Tokyo. He was a tremendous help to me on my first day, and the things he showed and explained to me were useful right until I got back to Narita. So thank you sir, for everything you did for me. And if anyone else needs a sound, reliable, thoroughly decent person to show you round Tokyo, Hiroshi is your man.

“ 1 Day Tokyo Trip Experience ”

Me and my boyfriend took tokyo trip on our transit trip from Singapore to SFO. In 8 hours, Hiroshi toured historical, future electronic and day to day social activities like markets, busy streets and temple. We had good understanding of tokyo culture and day to today lif style as that's the objective of the tour. His knowledge about the city and culture is worth mentioning.
