What to Expect

In Tokyo, there are so many attractive places where you can have a great time of the day.

I selected five most popular touring spots in the west side of Tokyo; Meiji Jingu Shrine, Harajyuku, Omotesando, Shibuya and Shinjyuku.

It's very good tour focusing on the location, you can save your time and energy. I recommend this tour, especially if this will be your first time visit in Tokyo!

Also there is "Popular spots in the East side of Tokyo" tour on my page. You can cover most of all must-see spots in Tokyo!!

At first, we'll visit Meiji Jingu shrine which has rich culture and history and is about 100 years old now. It was built to commemorate the Emperor Meiji and the Empress Shoken in 1912. As it's located inside of the large forest, you can feel the peaceful atmosphere. It's a very popular Shrine in Tokyo. More than 3 million people visit here during the first three days of the New Year. The contrast between the outside world and inside of Meiji shrine is unique and interesting, feeling like the new and the old coexist in this area.

Then we'll visit Harajyuku(Takeshita street). It is known as the latest fashion trend area, especially for teenagers and it is famous for cos-players who are dressed in costumes. There are a big 100 yen shop, photo sticker machines, pet clothes shops, crepe shops and many casual fashion shops in this area.

Omotesando is the finest fashion area. The main street of Omotesando is called the Champs Elysees in Tokyo. There are many luxurious shops, KIDDY LAND (Toy & animation shop), Oriental bazaar (souvenir shop), Ukiyoe museum and nice cafes & restaurants.

Then next is Shibuya. It is known as one of the busiest districts such as the famous scramble crossing. Let's see a flock of people and across the street without bumping them! We'll stop by the statue of dog called Hachi and other interesting spots in Shibuya and shops!

Our last visiting Spot is Shinjyuku. It's the one of the busiest area and has more than 50 exits of Shinjyuku station! No worry, I will guide this area especially east side of Shinjyuku, so you won't get lost. It's vast area, so I can suggest which area would be good for you depends on your interest.

If you have any questions and requests, please feel free to ask me. I'll reply you as soon as possible.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one. I'm really looking forward to meeting you in my tour!

Thank you, Arigatou!

When your team can't travel, bring travel to your team

Yuki created a one hour, live, virtual walking tour. This was not our team's first attempt at this with other companies, but this was by far the best. Yuki's communication started this adventure off on the right foot. Not only was she communicative, but she also was flexible when I booked the wrong date by accident. She was clear with what she needed from me for this to be successful (a zoom link) and she took care of the rest. Her AV was so clear and how she interacted with us was so interactive, fun, and informative. She used cue cards with photos, offered trivia, answered our live questions in chat and over the call. Our team was enamored with her and her style. She was fun and clearly new her stuff, but it didn't feel scripted or rehearsed. She was a gem and we have already referred her to other members of our organization. Absolutely would book her again and when we are able to actually travel to Tokyo, I'll be seeing if she would be willing to be our personal tour guide. Thank you for everything, Yuki!

Wow!! Thank you so much for your excellent review, Jill! I can't find a better word to express my gratitude. I also enjoyed to communicate with your team members during the session and glad to show you around in Asakusa as much as possible. My another virtual experience will visit Akihabara and put emphasis on more modern culture, this time such as Japanese animation. If you have a chance to join, I would be happy to guide. Of course, I always welcome all of you when you're able to travel to Tokyo in the future! Domo Arigatou!!

Was great to see Tokyo

What a great experience learning about and experiencing Tokyo. I have taken virtual tours before and depending on the group it could get quiet. Not with Yuki, she came prepared with facts, questions and different ways to engage the group. I cannot say enough positive things about Yuki and her tour, trust me you will love it!

Yukiko F.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Chris! I'm so happy to hear that. I appreciate that I can do something for my guests even under this difficult situation. I think it is meaningful to see a real time viewing, what's going on over there now and communicate interactively. I'm always welcome you on Zoom and in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
