What to Expect

What do you do in Tokyo? I show you both traditional and modern sightseeing spots, and would have you experience the local life in Tokyo. First, we look around in a traditional Japanese garden, Hamarikyu Garden, where we can enjoy green tea. Next, head for the old downtown by river sightseeing boat. We tour an oldest temple in Tokyo, Asakusa-Kannon Temple, stroll classic shopping streets and have authentic Japanese food for lunch. Finally, visit the largest shinto shrine in Tokyo, Meiji-jingu Shrine and walk down modern shopping streets. And also, you can experience Tokyo itself, with fabulous shops, excellent train systems, busy streets and kind people. At the end of the day, you will be much more familiar with the fascinating city!

Experiencing Asakusa

We had a great experience with Masako at Asakusa exploring the shops and learning about the temple.

Excellent Guide

Masako was early to meet us at our hotel, which was a good omen for me knowing she was punctual. She showed us how to use the subway system which seemed complicated even though we’ve navigated subways the world over. Masako’s English was very good and easy to understand. Her knowledge of Tokyo was extensive and informative. She knew where to go for whatever we were looking for and was good in suggesting a lunch restaurant. If we return to Tokyo, we would definitely use her again.

Dear Richard, Thank you very much for the lovely comment. It was wonderful to be with you. You two are energetic though you arrived Tokyo thd day before and might have had jet lag. You are friendly and open-minded about different culture. I was convinced to hear you do voluntary work in many countries and your wife runs her own company. I very much enjoyed chatting with you as well. When you return to Tokyo, I would like to meet you again, too. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Best regards, Masako

Excellent despite the weather

We enjoyed our time with Masako very much. She was very organized and easy to understand. Our weather was not good and she happily made adjustments to our original itinerary. We had a relaxing morning and a delicious lunch before she helped us find our way to the airport for our flight home. Thanks again Masako, it was great meeting you. Margaret and Jeff

Hello Margaret and Jeff, Thank you very much for the lovely comment. I appreciate it. I am glad to hear you went back home safe and sound. Though it was half a day, it was wonderful to be with you. Your friendliness and kindness helped me for all uncomfortable weather. It has still been raining here since then. When you return to Japan sometime in the future, I would like to meet you and show you around our beautiful country! Best regards, Masako
