What to Expect

I would like to take you to Sensoji Temple, Tokyo Sky Tree, Imperial Palace and Ginza.

Sensoji temple is Tokyo's oldest and largest one with a history dating back to 628. Kaminarimon, or "Thunder Gate," the outer gate of the temple is very famous as a landmark of Asakusa for its huge red lantern. It's colorful Nakamise, shopping arcade associated with Edo Period, is a pededtrian lane leading to the temple and lined with traditional shops and souvenir stands. It's the best place to buy your gifts and souvenirs as well. It is a very picturesque and traditional spot with a lot of Japanese atmosphere that should not be missed during a visit to Tokyo.

Tokyo Sky Tree was open on May 22, 2012 as the world's tallest self-supporting communication tower with a height of 634 meters. This new landmark tower is used mainly for terrestrial digital broascasting through the complete transition from analog to digital TV in Japan. The newly constructed tower also boasts two public observatories at 350 and 450 meters that command a panoramic view of traditional downtown Tokyo. The tower makes the area a thriving hub of international tourism along with Sensoji Temple.

The Imperial Palace is formerly known as the Edo Castle, the stronghold of Tokugawa Shogunate. This Palace has been the residence of Japan's Emperor since the Meiji Restoration in 1868. The palace with a compound of a litlle over 1 million square meters consists of the main Palace, the residence of Emperor and Empress, and Higashi-Gyoen or the East Garden. Everyone can go to outer Garden where you can see the elegant Nijyuubashi with its double arched stone bridge across the moat.

Ginza or literally "Silver mint", has high end stores and boutiques. After a big fire in 1872, Ginza has become one of the leading shopping streets thanks to modernization efforts. There are lineups from high-class brand stores such as Chanel and Gucci to fast fashion stores such as Uniqlo and Forever 21, as well as accessory shops. When you visit Kabukiza tower, you can have an experience the world of Kabuki even on days without performance.

Let's enjoy the tour of Tokyo.

Thank you.

Excellent guide. Well prepared tour.

He is so friendly and very knowledgeable about local history and japanese mythology. His itinerary was well preplanned. I would not have been able to explore all the places we did on my own. Thanks Hideo san!

Hello Pobparat I'm very happy to receive your message. Favored by good weather, we could enjoy visiting Kumano three Grand Shrines such as Kumano Nachi Taisha, Hongu Taisha, and Hayatama Taisha. Furthermore we watched Nachi Waterfalls with a height of 133 meters, the longest drop in Japan. I look forward to your activities and success in your life. Thank you, Tua.
