Kawagoe Trip

This trip was a great first day in Japan as Christophe taught my mother and I quite a bit about the culture in Kawagoe. The restaurant Christophe took us to was amazing, the food was so good! I would highly recommend booking Christophe and this tour, you will learn a lot about Kawagoe and its unique Edo period style culture, have a really tasty lunch and see many cute shops! And Christophe is very open to talking and answering questions.

Tokyo Up-to-You Tour

8 hours

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.
