What comes to mind when you hear "Traditional Tokyo"? Today, we will experience a classic aspect of Tokyo. The first destination is one of the must-see spots: Asakusa. Since early times, Asakusa has been the center of entertainment and attracted many people for centuries. You will be transported into a lively atmosphere and soaked in a festive mood. Then, we will walk around Yanaka, where houses and streets look as if they were still in the good old days. We will stroll for about one hour and enjoy local everyday life, and also view small temples and the last shogun' s resting place. Finally, we will visit Rikugi-en garden. It is a graceful feudal lord garden that symbolizes Japanese poetry. I am sure you will be satisfied with the calm and peaceful surrounds. Perhaps you would like a teahouse. You won't be disappointed.read more

We cannot thank Masako enough. She has been exceptional from our first contact. From organising a customised tour, ordering a much wanted Japanese book through assisting us about the damage from Typhoon Jebi. Nothing has been too much trouble. Her knowledge of Japanese history is comprehensive. We have booked Masako for a second day and are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us.

We had a wonderful time in Tokyo with Masako. She helped us plan our 3 days sharing advice. She met us each day on time and was very personable, sharing a lot about Japanese culture and life in Tokyo - even some about her own personal family life which gave us good perspective. Masako was very accommodating in our schedule and her pleasant personality made it a joy to spend time with her as she helped us see and tour the various parts of the city. We happily and highly recommend her!
