Overview

Many people visit Yokohama to enjoy nice view of port ,bridge, historical buildings and parks. But not many people know good place to take pictures. I will show you nice places to take pictures while enjoying sightseeing , food and talking . Please join me, to make your travel more memorable one.

What to Expect

In this tour, I will take you to at least 7 impressive places for picture taking . It is possible to visit Yokohama by yourself . But not everybody takes pictures at ideal places. Therefore my knowledge will help you to keep good memory of Yokohama.
Yokohama is a big town and central area is surrounded by big buildings. The first point is near Sakuragi-cho area ,which is original port area, has several places to enjoy nice view of buildings and amusement park. The second point is an ideal place to see Yokohama Bay bridge. The third point is famous Red bricks warehouse area where always some events are taken place. After the Red bricks warehouse area, we will see 3 historical towers. There is one tower which has historical value in inside which you can take pictures. And the next point is close to Yamashita park. It is a well known place and has not well-known historical story . Chinatown is another place where you can enjoy different atmosphere and pictures than any place else. After China town, you have a choice for further tour. The first one is Harbor view park area which has westernized park and the second one is Sankei-En which is much bigger and Japanese style garden.
At Harbor view park area, there is atmosphere of early stage of Westernized Japan and Western style gardens with many flowers including roses.
Sankei-En which is a big Japanese garden located in south of central Yokohama and it takes about 30 minutes from China town by bus. You can enjoy the garden all the year round with different scene and flowers. It means you can enjoy different points for picture taking in every season. My recommendation is Sankei-En.

“ Outstanding custom tour of Tokyo ”

We are so happy we chose Hiroshi for our tour of Tokyo. We were on a Millenium cruise of Japan and decided the ship’s excursion didn’t match our wish list. Hiroshi met us at the dock in Yokohama and traveled with us by train and metro to Tokyo. That morning Tokyo had heavy showers, so he instantly altered our agenda to go to two very interesting museums, one on Sumo wrestling and the other on Edo-Tokyo. When the rain stopped at noon and we resumed our agenda. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in a traditional restaurant, free of tourists. Tokyo’s metro system is huge, modern and a wonderfully efficient way to see Tokyo, but it is complex and we were so happy to have Hiroshi lead the way. He is fun, has a great sense of humor, and gave great insight into the culture and history. He ... read more

“ Hakone one day tour ”

We enjoyed our Hakone day trip with Hiro. He is funny, knowledgeable and easy to have conversation with. His command of English is excellent, which helped a lot while he shared his knowledge about Japanese history. The weather wasn’t great on our day of visit to Hakone, but the excellent Open Air Museum made up for the bad weather. Thank you Hiro!

Hiroshi:

Dear Eileen Thank you for your great review about my guide. I always try to make my customer's trip the most enjoyable one. Unfortunately, the weather was not good. But I am happy to know the Open air museum compensate the weather condition. . I enjoyed being with your family. Your husband is very calm and I like him a lot. your son is shy and I like him, too. Of course Eileen you are wonderful lady. If you have chance to come back to Japan again, please appoint me as your guide in any place close to Yokohama. Thank you Eileen and I wish we have chance to see again. Best regards Hiro

“ Perfect guide ”

Even before meeting us, Hiroshi starts helping us with our Japan tour, not to bring to much luggage, having a look after our not-so-easy-to-find appartment. Was there before time, well prepared. It was cherry blossom and full moon high season, so whole Japan was happy in pink and out. We find our way in the imperial garden to the former castle, learning a lot about history and different signs on roof tiles. We visit a shrine, learning to clean ourself with water in the right ceremonial way. Having a quick lunch with Hiroshi and heading for the all-are-going-crossing, where our guide take an artistic picture of us in the middle of the crowd from a point at one of the skyscrapers. Thank you for that. Than Kamakura, going by train and using the old tram, learning, how to queue up like the Ja... read more

“ Full day of Tokyo sights ”

Hiroshi-san showed us around Tokyo during a full day tour. He came to pick us up at our hostel, early, and we saw Tsukiji Hongan-ji temple, Tsukiji market, had lunch at a very nice sushi restaurant, visited the Hokusai art museum, the Fukagawa Edo museum, and the Sumo museum near the stadium complete with a visit to the Sumo clothing store. So you can see that you should prepare for a full day of walking and learning! Hiroshi-san is very knowledgeable about all the history of the places we visited and can answer almost all of your questions. He adapted the tour to our specific interests when we exchanged emails prior to the trip and even prepared tour materials in English to give to us about other places we were planning on visiting on other days in Japan. He put in alot of effort to make ... read more

Hiroshi:

Dear Katie-san Thank you very much to choose me as your first guide in Tokyo. It was enjoyable experience to be your tour guide. You and your partner had a lot of knowledge about fish and I was very much encourage to learn more about fishes. Also, I am very glad by knowing that you satisfied my guide for one day tour. My roll is to make customers' tour in Japan the most valuable one. Therefore if you have another chance to visit Japan again, please choose me as your guide again. I hope you had great time in Hakone and will spend great time in Tokyo for rest of the days. If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me at anytime. I am more than happy to help you. I would like to express my appreciation for my evaluation. Best regards Hiroshi
