What to Expect

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.

“ Efficient & effective way to see Tokyo ”

Masako was our guide for 2 full and 2 half days while we had an amazing holiday in Tokyo and the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours, Masako was helpful with her knowledge but recognised when we needed to make itinerary changes due to the children's interest levels. For our family this made the tours totally effective and hugely enjoyable. Contact Masako, for me she helped tailor my requirements from high level ideas to deliver a detailed tour plan ticking all our boxes. - Thank you we loved our time and will definitely return to Japan.

“ Masako is an excellent guide ”

Masako put together a tour for me to see sights in Kamakura. She helped me with train schedules, and I managed to get from Narita to Kamakura easily. The tour was amazing! We visited Buddhist, Shinto, Zen Buddhist shrines, including a lovely tea ceremony, We had a wonderful lunch and even squeezed time in for shopping! Masako also generously helped me understand the history and cultural aspects of the sites that we visited. Her English skills are excellent too. She is one of the best guides that I’ve ever had and I highly recommend her!

“ Very professional and goes beyond what is expected ”

Even when it wasn't part of her duties, Masako helped me in finding and booking restaurants for my group, which consisted of vegetarians and non-vegetarians. She was always keeping me updated on our itinerary and worked around our schedule. She was very professional. Will definitely book her again for another tour!
