Tokyo traditional culture tour

Yoko kindly agreed to meet me at a convenient location to begin our tour. The focus was on Japan traditional culture where we visited Meiji Jingu shrine, Asakusa temple and the gardens of the Imperial palace. Yoko was very friendly and knowledgeable. Having previously been raised in Seattle, she understood American culture and was very communicative. She shared with me the history about the shoguns, emperors and the shrines, and was very attentive to answering all of my questions. I had always wanted to experience Japan tea and we visited a tea shop to try matcha and Yoko was very patient as I familiarized myself with the variety of teas. Overall, a great day sightseeing and I would recommend Yoko.

Yoko T.

Thank you so much for writing a review just after you got back to the States. I appreciate your keenness on learning about the Japanese culture so much. Having a genuine Matcha at a very traditional store at Tsukiji was a nice experience, wasn't it? I had fun with you Stephen san and your wonderful team. I'll be looking forward to seeing you and your family, colleagues soon. Thank you again!!

I had the most amazing day with the most amazing guide in Tokyo

Yoko is full of positivity and energy. She is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. She knows the city of Tokyo and all its hidden gems. She has your best interest in mind. Yoko inquired what are my top things to see and then organized a whole day the most advantageous way so we got to see and experience even more. She explained a lot about culture and religion and history. It’s a very memorable day for me. I can not wait to come back and have Yoko guide me again. Thank you, Yoko san.

Yoko T.

Thank you so much for a wonderful day and an amazing review so soon. I'm so glad that it became a memorable day for you, Paulina san. I was so amazed that you did so much research before you come that you made the conversation much more interesting and I could enjoy story telling a lot based on your interest. I will be waiting to see and guide you again soon. Have fun in Kyoto and see you next year!!

There's nothing like a good mood to make your day

Even though the weather wasn't helping to see Mt. Fuji, Yoko was still making sure we enjoyed the trip. She was rooting with us for the weather to improve and she was just as happy as we were when the "princess" finally showed up ;) Plus, she gave us a great tip about visiting the observatory in Tokyo. We recommend her!

Yoko T.

Thank you so much for your review, Isis san. It was really fun to be with you and your partner Victor. Both of you were so keen to learn about our culture. I was so amazed that you knew about the name of Japanese food like Gobo and Kaki. It was so dramatic when we could see Mount Fuji showed up at the Station at last. Have fun with your sake!! Thank you again!! https://gowithguide.com/blog/waiting-for-mount-fuji-with-a-lovely-couple-5048

(The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.)
