Overview

Yanaka is one of the few places of Tokyo which survived The Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and bombing during the World War Second. So you can see traditional atmosphere such as old wooden houses and stalls which serve for living residents.as well as Buddhist temples. I hope you could see and feel the life- style of Japanese people as well as Traditional Japanese culture.

What to Expect

Recently the life style of Japanese people has changed and westernized. We will walk slowly in order to show you what has changed - modernized Japanese culture- at the same time what still remains in the bottom of our culture. The time goes slowly here , and you might feel relaxed as if you had stayed here ,

Important

・Most shops are small , and most of them won't accept credit cards, It's better for you to bring cash a little , 5000 yen might be enough.
・There are a lot of Buddhist temples, but if you don't want to visit there, that's possible.
・This is a walking tour, so I recommend you to wear flat shoes.
・You do not need any transportation fees because we will stroll around there just on foot.
(If you take a taxi because of your poor physical condition or bad weather, those expenses are charged to you.)
・If you'd like to meet somewhere different from Nippori JR Station(ex: at your hotel or different station), picking up fees plus guide's transportation fees to the place will be
charged.
・Asakura Sculpture museum is closed on Monday and Thursday.  read more

“ Amazing Day ”

We had an amazing day with our lovely tour guide Keiko. She is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Japan and Tokyo (history, everything about the temples we visited, custom, ...). She knows authentic places to eat & drink. It was a real pleasure spending the day with her.

“ The Best Guide of our Trip ”

Keiko was our ideal guide, providing lots of information without us needing to ask. Her knowledge of history is wonderful. Exactly what we wanted. She even brought photos of the Imperial family and illustrations of what Tokyo looked like in the past. She guided us seamlessly around Senso-ji Temple, it's market street and Imado Shrine. Imado was a new one for her but Keiko still provided us plenty of information about it. We had four different guides for our 10 day trip to Japan and Keiko was by far the best!

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Keiko was just what we were looking for in a tour guide. She was personable, spoke English well and showed us her country like only she could do. After leaving her we went on a cruise and after each tour we all said we wished we could have found another tour guide from Triple Lights in stead of the big ship tour guides!

“ Wonderful Tour Guide ”

My family and I enjoyed our tour with Keiko very much. We had a half day tour with her at Tsukiji market and Ginza. She was knowledgeable and very patient with our group of 6. We all had a great time, and definitely would book her again in the future!

“ tokyo citytour ”

Ms. Kieko is very helpful and knowledgeable in guiding us to the different tourist spots. And she tried her best and succeeded in finding the last part of cherry blossom trees which we longed to see. A very excellent guide. We enjoyed our trip with her
