Overview

Walking on backstreets of Asakusa and you can feel the common people's life in Tokyo from the city view and shrines.

What to Expect

Leaving the busy area of Asakusa town. There you can find some of compact and interesting shrines. You must feel the common people's culture of Tokyo there. You can also collect Goshuin (stamps of shrine). In between the tour, we'll walk along the historical prostitution street, Yoshiwara. We can also see the so-called San-ya town, it was called as a slum town (now the security of the town has improved).

[Note]
This tour is by-product of the custom-made tour for Ms. Fiona K***. I appreciate her great knowledge and contribution to the tour.

“ Friendly, Warm, and Accommodating ”

We started our travels in Japan with Tak taking us around Tokyo. We accomplished so much and had such a good time on our first day that we decided to book Tak for a second day. Tak paid attention To what we wanted to do and who we were and he was a gentle supportive presence as we acclimated ourselves to Tokyo and Japan. His good humor and warm presence felt almost familial. My son and I felt super comfortable with him and appreciated his commitment to getting us from point a to b and keeping our time somewhat structured and loose at the same time. Highly recommended!!!

“ Wonderful Day ”

Tak was fantastic. He worked with us before our trip to plan our day and offered great suggestions. Communication was throughout our planning and our day. For the day of the tour, he met us at our hotel and showed us how to use the subway system. He provided interesting facts, taught us easy ways to remember some key Japanese worlds and has a thorough knowledge of Tokyo and it’s history. He’s also quite funny. We has a lot of fun spending our first day in Tokyo with him. We highly recommend Tak as a guide to show you around the city.

“ It was a nice experience ”

It was nice meeting Tak, he’s very friendly and an easy going person. Our first meeting day was somewhat unplanned and a bit complicated, but on the second day, he was able to prepare my itinerary and made it convenient for us to move around to many places through subway. I wanted to book him again after our second meeting but It was unfortunate that he didn’t have enough time to join me on the third day due to new year activities Thank you very much Tak for your kind assistance and I hope to meeting you again.

“ Outstanding ”

Tak-san is an awesome guide who communicated in details with me before my tour. He placed a lot of effort into finding out the places in the theme of my tour and sending me the pics. We went through the highly complicated Tokyo subway system and ate the best soba I ever tasted in my life. He comes highly recommended as he will follow through with your theme of the tour. You must also have a very clear idea of what you want to see. His page lists the themed tours he did and that's why I choose him as a guide. It was a great experience!
