We visit several sites such as traditional temples and shrines, and modern buildings including museums. Some of the buildings are designated as Japan’s Important Cultural Properties. For example, Ueno Toshogu Shrine, the Tokyo National Museum and the National Museum of Western Art are placed on our itinerary.
I will provide you an explanation of each architecture and the related story.
We also take a look at various exhibits in the museums. At the Tokyo National Museum, which has Japan’s largest collection of more than 100,000 pieces of arts and artifacts, we see Japan’s representative works such as samurai swords and armor, ceramics, ukiyo-e, and Buddhist sculptures.
The National Museum of Western Art, designed by a notable French architect Le Corbusier, is the only site placed on the World Cultural Heritage list in Tokyo. We will find the architectural features of the World Cultural Heritage site and see various Western sculptures and paintings, searching an influence of ukiyo-e, traditional Japanese woodblock printings, on the works of European impressionists such as Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh.

At first sight we choose this guide for his good pronunciation and the tours he normally guides. We had from the beginning a good contact with M. Aki. He took account with our wishes and he made the booked tours unforgettable. Changing in function of the weather previews was also possible. We learned a lot of the Japanese culture. We could see the most beautiful places and special things. He takes always attention to your questions and answers them with a lot of consideration for the history, mythic and religions. If we return we will surely book Aki again.
