What to Expect

We visit World Heritage site in Nikko. Toshogu, the main facility of the World Heritage is a Shinto shrine established in 1617 to enshrine Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Edo Shogunate that ruled Japan for over 260 years until 1868. Rinnoji Temple used to integrate the temples and shrines in Nikko including Toshogu Shrine until the Meiji Restriction in the late 19th century, when shrines and temples in Japan were forced to be separated by laws. You will not only be moved by the magnificent and solemn architectures and carvings but also can explore the history of Nikko and learn the syncretism of Shintoism and Buddhism, which has been strongly influencing our lives in Japan.

Tsukiji to Ueno in a day

We enjoyed going around Tsukiji outer market. At Hamarikyu Gardens I was curious about the “mound” with a door that I saw and Shoji explained the purpose of it very well. Shoji brought us to a nice place for tempura at Asakusa. I wish we had enough time to visit the museums at Ueno Park. Shoji obliged when I requested to go back to have photos of Rodin’s sculptures. And we’d like to thank Shoji for including an additional stop (Yushima Tenjin Shrine) in our tour at our request.

I am very grateful to your kind words. I am really glad to hear that you enjoyed the Tokyo tour with me. I had a great time with you too. Thank you again for choosing me. I hope we will see you again soon!

Fantastic intro to Tokyo attractions with a knowledgeable guide

Shoji provided us with a great overview of some main attractions in Tokyo. He allowed for a flexible itinerary and was happy to change it as the day went along if there was something we were interested in doing or seeing. We had a fabulous day with him and really enjoyed his company. his personality and demeanor are very calm and it is easy to spend time with him. He arrived on time and had good explanations of all sites. He was happy to answer any questions throughout the day as well and we had many! We will be happy to go another tour with him when we can!!

Shoji K.

Thank you very much for your kind words. They really encourage me. I’m very glad you enjoyed the Tokyo tour with me. I also had a great time with you. I hope you will come back to Japan sometime.
