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.

“ Great tour guide ”

Masako was a great tour guide for my family. We have 2 daughters. She was very kind and accommodating to them. They had certain goals during the tour and she was flexible in making changes to our itenerary. My kids still talk about how much they miss her. She was pleasant, knowledgeable, spoke English well and was a greater tour guide. Thanks Masako for making our time in Tokyo great!. Thanks, Miller Family

MASAKO:
Stephen, Thank you very much for the kind words. I appreciate it. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Tokyo and went back home safe and sound. I definitely had a great time with you and your family. I was impressed your daughters are very good. I miss them, too. Give my kindest regards to your wife and daughters. Again, thank you. Masako

“ Traveling with a kawai baby ”

Msako was incredibly helpful in developing a flexible schedule. We traveled with a 14 month old baby and had to slow down quite a lot and go off the original proposal. We spent 12 days in Japan and had a great time. The tour we took with Masako helped make the rest of the trip go smoothly as she helped us figure out transportation and gave us a lot more confidence to explore.

MASAKO:
Jonatan, Thank you very much for a lovely comment. I appreciate it. It was wonderful to be with you. Your baby is so cute and a good girl. I admired you for your profound affection for her. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay here. Again thank you very much! Masako

“ Awesome Time at Tokyo! ”

We had a lovely time with Masako. She was very friendly, accommodating, and informative. We never felt rushed and most importantly, my kids loved her. She spoke english very well and provided great information on history and culture for all the sites we visited. We highly recommend her as a guide. Thank you Masako

MASAKO:
Peggy, Thank you very much for the kind words. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Tokyo. I had a great time with you, too. I was impressed all of you are very friendly, cooperative and patient. I loved your daughter and son, too. Thank you again and please give my best regards to your husband and children. Masako

“ A Wonderful Time in Tokyo ”

We spent 3 very enjoyable days with Masako in Tokyo. In addition to going the extra mile, and organising a cooking class for us, she was always punctual, patient and flexible with our timing and interests. She is a very personable guide and shared a great deal of history and cultural interests with us. Thank you again so much Masako. We hope to meet you again someday.

MASAKO:
Dear Karly and Sergio, Thank you very much for the kind words. I am glad to hear you had a good time in Tokyo. I was impressed you are very considerate and warmhearted. I appreciate it. It was wonderful to be with you for three days. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Masako

“ Great Time.With Masako ”

Masako was awesome! She arrived at our hotel promptly and helped us with rail passes and SUICA cards. As we visited the sights, she shared her knowledge of the history of Tokyo, which made the experiences more meaningful. She was very accommodating when we asked to adjust the walking pace and to stop for a brief walk through a specialty store. This is exactly what we wanted on a customized tour. The restaurant for lunch was very good, the variety of choices on the menu was perfect for our group, and the prices were very reasonable. Masako was very warm and friendly, her command of the English language was very good, and her customer service was the BEST! She truly took an interest in making our first-day experience in Tokyo a safe and memorable one. She did not rush us and stayed with us beyond our scheduled time with her. Mahalo, Masako!

MASAKO:
Hi Gerri, Thank you very much for the comment. I am not sure I can deserve your kind and warm words, but I very much appreciate it. I must thank you for your cooperation and patience. I was impressed you always laughed, though you just arrived in Tokyo on the previous night after a long-distance flight. What' more, you showed much consideration for me. It made me very happy and feel easy to tour around together. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Please give my best regards to your cousins and friends. Again thank you very much! Masako
