This is the oldest and the most popular temple in Tokyo with a big gate and 5 story pagoda. Nakamise-Dori is a pedestrian street leading to the temple lined with many traditional shops and souvenir stands.


1.2 Kappabashi Dougugai

Kappabashi is a place full of restaurant supply stores. If you are interested in kitchen knives or potteries, this is the place to go.

2. Tokyo Sky Tree (Admission fee : Weekday 3,500JPY, Holiday 3,800JPY)

It’s the second tallest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world (634m ). Its higher observation room is at the height of 450m.

I will wait at the bottom of the tower, if you think 3,100JPY for the guide is too much.


3. Tsukiji area

3.1 Fish market

There are about 60 wholesalers and 400 retail shops here. You can taste some street food like seafood BBQ and fresh fruits. You can enjoy the best sushi as well.

Basically, it’s close on Wednesday, Sunday and national holiday.

3.2 Honganji temple

This is one of the biggest temples in Japan and quite unique.

Its main hall is an Indian style not like a traditional temple.

This is a typical Daimyo(Japanese feudal lord) garden in the Edo period (1603-1868) with a tidal pond and two wild-duck hunting sites.

4. Shinjuku area

4.1 Shinjuku Gyoen national Park (Admission fee : 500JPY)

It is considered one of the most important parks of the Meiji Era.(1869-1912) It's wonderful for strolling because of the variety of its planed gardens; styles range from French and English to Japanese traditional.

4.2 Observation room of Tokyo metropolitan city hall

You can have a sky view of Tokyo at the height of 202m.

It’s not as tall as the Sky Tree, but it's tall enough and free of charge.

Akihabara has two faces.

The first one is an electronics shops town and the other one is the center of Otaku culture. Otaku is a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime fandom. There are so many amine goods shops here and a maid café is one of the symbols of Otaku culture.

Exciting Hakone - One Day Tour from Tokyo

Hakone
10 hours

Great tour and amazing help!

Hideaki did an amazing job not only showing us Hakone but also did an amazing job going above and beyond in helping us understand and buy our shinkansen tickets for the following day from Hakone to Kyoto. Getting to Hakone and then on to Kyoto via shinkansen was the part of our trip I was most worried about, but Hideaki made the trip to Hakone seamless and fun. We were lucky to be able to see Mt Fuji and the open-air museum was enchanting. Would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a tour guide in Tokyo for a day trip!

Walter D.

Walter-san, Thank you very much for your review. We were so lucky that we could see the full view of Mt. Fuji, even though it was cloudy. Because clouds were higher than the mountain. It's very rare. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama

Mount Fuji

In this tour, we will visit three of the most popular Mt. Fuji viewing spots. My favorite part of this tour is when I take you to Arakurayama Sengen Park where we can have the most beautiful view of Mt. Fuji with five-story pagoda. I think this is the best place for Mt. Fuji viewing, but it is located in a little bit complicated place. So, I can take you here in the most efficient way.
