Important Information

I can arrange your tour in accordance with your preference.

Even though the staying time in Tokyo is limited, you don't want to waste your time.

I am glad to make a customized tour for family with children, and leisure travelers who stay in Tokyo for a limited time. I am also delighted to help business executives who want to spend their first day to acclimate to Tokyo life or to do shopping within the limited time.

I will be able to take you Tsukiji Market, and the old temple Asakusa Sensoji, or Shibuya crossing within four hours. On the tour you can absorb various aspects of old and modern culture in Tokyo in just a few hours.

I mainly do walking tour using public transportation. Tokyo transportation is very complicated. After the tour, you will get to know the overview of the transportation systems in Tokyo. I recommend you take this tour on the first day in Tokyo.

Event though about 30% of shops are closed, Sundays and Wednesday, you can enjoy eating at several eating places..

Great way to see a bit of Japan!

My partner and I had an 8 hour layover and had plenty of time for the tour. It was easy to find Mari at the airport and she got us back in a timely manner. We visited the Narita Shinshoji temple and we’re given a historical and modern account of the temple’s significance. Afterwards we picked up souvenirs and had a delicious bowl of ramen!

Thank you for your wonderful review. We were lucky that we got sun shine and the street was not so crowded. I really enjoyed the chat with both of you. You are a nice couple.

Mari is who you need

Mari is well organized and know what she is doing. Her custom planning made our trip, not sure what we will be doing without her plans.

It was my pleasure and honor to have been chosen as a tour guide during the visit to Japan. I'm thrilled to take to different places and make sure to have a memorable sightseeing experience. All of the children are so adorable.

Thank you for posting such a wonderful review. I still remember that we really had great time in Sawara, riding a boat, cycling beside the river, talking jokes, and singing songs. Actually I reconfirmed how wonderful Sawara is. Until you asked me, I did not aware that. You will start your new career soon, right. Hoping your success in future.

A day to remember in Tokyo!

We had a delightful time with Mari as she took us on a full day tour to see some Tokyo landmarks. Mari was thoughtful of what we wanted to see, and of our special dietary needs for lunch. She arrived on time, was well prepared and was very pleasant to be with. We highly recommend Mari.
