East Gardens of the Imperial Palace is one of the Must-See spots in Tokyo, I believe.

The gardens are quite beautiful and there was the castle of the Capital approximately four hundred years ago and now around there is the business center of Japan.

After visiting the East Gardens, we will visit Ueno Park, which also has some historical buildings.

Or you can choose Asakusa, one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Tokyo instead.

Great Tour - highly recommend

This was my wife and mine first time in Japan and Yoko was phenomenal. We did a full day tour but that included lunch and some beers with plenty of opportunities to take great photos. Yoko is very friendly and nice and did a great job teaching us about the history and culture through the day but in a very friendly and conversational way. Highly recommend Yoko!

Hubert Z.

I appreciate your great review, Hubert san. I had a great time with you and your lovely wife Brittany san. It is my first time talking about retirement and health care over Asahi Extra Cold at that restaurant. It was so interesting talking with both of you. I started to watch "Tokyo Vice" and looking forward to watching Episode 7 of Season 2 tonight, which broadcast is a little delayed compared to the States. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and come again in the future. Thank you again for the lovely day, Yoko

Ueno Park and East Garden of the Imperial Palace with Yoko - excellent day

When we met Yoko at our hotel, the first thing she did was point out the view of Mount Fuji from the hotel. She said that usually you cannot see it from Tokyo in May. We knew from there that Yoko would be providing valuable information along the way. This tour is important, not only to see the beautiful grounds and shrines, but also because of its links to the past, especially of the Shogun era in Japan in the Edo period. Yoko, brings along her expertise and teaches those she guides. It’s a great learning experience and she keeps photos and drawings of the Edo period with her. It helps make it a great tour. Yoko is also very nice and her English is perfect haven’t spent years in the US. She also helped my wife at a restaurant order with an allergy. We were lucky to have a warm, sunny day with a nice breeze. It was a perfect Saturday in May in Tokyo and a great tour. Thanks Yoko.

Len B.

Thank you so much for such an amazing review, Len san. We were blessed with the perfect weather to explore East Gardens and Ueno Park and I was glad both of you were keen enough to walk to visit the sightseeing spots. Not only Mount Fuji, we could see some cherry blossoms still blooming at East Gardens. I really enjoy the conversations with you. As I have two guests in a row talking about "Tokyo Vice" I started watching it and soon I'm going to finish the 2nd Episode of Season 1. Some scenes of Shogun is quite gross but it is so authentic and "Last Samurai" is a marvelous movie with beautiful Samurai spirits, Bushido, which Ken Watanabe who is also in Tokyo Vice played the role of Last Samurai. I hope you enjoy Kyoto and your cruise too. Thank you again for the lovely day, Len sama and Sheryl sama.

Not what we expected

We expected to have a deep dive on Japan culture and history during the tour. Instead we had a rushed and intense walk + subway tour that was neither inspiring or informative. The highlight was that the say was beautiful abd we got to see many of the cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Janet R.

Sorry I didn't match what you were expecting. I felt sometimes you seemed not to understand English well enough. Maybe you should look for a guide who spoke Portugese. I wish you would ask more questions for what you were looking for. I explained about Shogun and the history of Sensoji Asakusa. I hope the rest of your trip went well.

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.

Mt. Fuji isn't always visible, especially when it's hazy. Please choose the spots in the highlights you would like to visit around Kawaguchiko/ Mt. Fuji, based on your interest/preferences, your physical condition and the weather. It depends on which ones you choose, but I'll do my best to arrange it the way you can visit more than three of them but if you choose both Chureito Pagoda and Nemba, you might not be able to choose the other options unless you are willing to use taxis.
