This shrine was built in 1920 to commemorate Emperor Meiji who was led Japan to the modern coiuntry after fedual system was over. The size of propety is No.1 in this region and experience how to worship deity. Also, this is a good place to learn about Japanese religion.
This garden used to be a part of Edo castle and now it is a part of Imperial palace and it is big. You can enjoy nice Japanese garden and learn about old Japanese castle. If you are interested in Japanese history, this place is nice to learn.

The second place is Imperial palace east garden. You can not enter the palace but this east garden of Imperial Palace was center of Edo castle during Edo era( 1603-1868).Therefore in this garden you will see some relics of the castle. The last place is Meiji Shrine. This shrine is one of the most famous shrines in Japan. It was built in 1920 to enshrine Emperor Meiji.

Hiroshi was just the best guide. We saw fascinating places and had amazing unexpected experiences . Thanks Hiroshi
Thank you for youe very good review. I enjoyed a lot with you I hope you will have good time in Naoshima. If you need any help, please contact me. I will try to help you. Best regards
Hiroshi did a great job guiding us in Tokyo. He was very attentive to our needs given that we had a 1 year old baby with us and we had already seen many of Tokyo's attractions before meeting Hiroshi. He carefully chose the pending top spots and gave us a great experience explaining the history and context behind each location. Hiroshi is also very friendly and easy going with a nice sense of humor; my wife and I were very happy to have met him. Thank you Hiroshi.
Dear Fadi Thank you very much for the gtest review. I enjoyed being with your family. I was wondering how you spent on Jan 1 which is really a special day for Jaoanese. There are many other places to visit in Japan and hope to be your guide in future. Thank you again and best regards Hiroshi
Hiroshi is a very nice man and very good at what he does. We had a lovely day in the Hakone area , on one of the most beautiful days. Hiroshi was very patient and fair , when the forecast was bad, he rescheduled our tour for a better day. We really appreciated that. We understood that we would pay for his travel In Hakone, but did not expect any other surprise expenses. In fact I emailed Hiroshi to ask what was not covered in his fee , weeks before the trip. I was very clear that I did not want any surprise expenses. He told me there was the ticket in Hakone to pay for and that my passo card could not be used there. As we said good bye in the train station we were suddenly asked for his travel going to meet us in Yokohama and his trip home from Yokohama. We were surprised and felt this was NOT our agreement. We were also insulted because we took him for lunch and desert after lunch. Which we felt was over and above what we had to do. Even if he forgot to tell us about this extra fee when I asked in my email, we feel, given how kind we were, he should NOT have asked us for anymore money. For this reason, we will NEVER use his services again. Susan and David Rosenberg
Susan Thank you for your revieew. But did you see voucher of the tour? If you see it, you will find clearly that my transportation cost 7,524 yen was NOT included in the tour price you paid to Triplelights. What I learn from you is I should remind the cost before the tour.
Hiroshi made great use of out limited cruise shore time, In an afternoon and evening he enabled us to experience modern, historical, cultural and aethestic aspects of the city leaving us so we left having felt we had been throgh an informed imersive day. He is a charming and likeable guide and we are most grateful for the good time we had with him.
Dear David Thank you very much for writing a good review about thr tour. I enjoyed a lot with you and your wife. Your interest to our culture helped me to search places which you may satisfy. As I mentioned Nezu art museum is a not big museum. However I like the place very much because of real Japanese atmosphere which the museum has. Please make another chance to come to Japan and I wish to be your guide again to show more of Japan. Best regards Hiroshi
