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.

Hello. I am Masako and a national certified tour guide.
I was born and raised in Tokyo and have lived in Yokohama for about 30 years. So, I am familiar with both Tokyo and Yokohama. Tokyo is an eclectic city, traditional and modern, having many must-see sightseeing spots. I promise you will have an exciting day and enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine! While Yokohama is a new city, but proud of its great influence on Japan's modernization. It takes only a half hour by train from Tokyo but the atmosphere is completely different. You will find a special fascination. Looking forward to seeing you and showing you around my beautiful cities! read more

“ 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!

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

Masako was our tour guide for Tokyo. Since we arrived from Canada the night before, we booked her for two short days (5 hours each) rather than one long and exhausting day. Over those days we covered most of the popular sites and Masako showed us how to use the subway system so we were confident to visit other places on our own. She provided us with a great introduction to Japanese history and culture.

“ 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
