Ryogoku area( Edo-Tokyo museum, Sumo museum, Sumida-Hokusai museum, Sword museum

There are 4 museums in Ryogoku area where is famous for Sumo wrestling because there is a Sumo arena. And inside of Sumo arena, there is Sumo museum. This is free of charge but while Sumo tournament is held, this museum is closed. The one you should no miss is Edo-Tokyo museum. Fromm items displayed in this museum, you can realize life in Tokyo since 1600. By the way, Edo is the old name of Tokyo. Everybody visited this museum satisfied 100%.

Sumida-Hokusai museum is dedicated to Katsushika Hokusai who is famous for Ukiyoe which is wood block printing. Location of this museum is about 5 min walk from Edo-Tokyo museum.

Sword museum is dedicated in Japanese sword. If you are interested in Japanese sword, it is worth to visit.

12:30 PM

Ueno area is famous for museums. There are 3 major museums; National museum, National science museum and Western art museum. For example in National museum, many national heritages are displayed. And the building of Western art museum is listed as a world heritage.

Out of 3 major museums, the most famous one is Western art museum which is listed as one of World heritage buildings architected by Le Corbusier. This area is nice area to visit even you do not interested in museums. You can enjoy various architectures and nice atmospher of culture.

02:00 PM

Roppongi area

In this area, there are 3 museums which are Mori art museum, New National museum, and Suntory museum. The one museum I recommend is Mori museum. This museum does not own any art and special exhibition is held time to time. Therefore if exhibition is not the one you wish to see, I do not recommend this museum. However this museum is located at the top of building which is about 200 m high and nice to visit the observation area.

03:30 PM

Omote-sando area ( Nezu museum and Ohta museum)

Omote-sando area is famous for shopping. But there are 2 very nice museums; one is Nezu musuem which is dedicated to Japanese art and the another one is Ohta museum which is dedicated to Ukihyoe (wood block printing). I personally prefer to Nezu museum. This musuem is designed by a very famous Japanese architecture and it has atmosphere of Japaese tradition. The very nice thing about this museum is its garden. This garden is Japanese garden and you can enjoy flowers and ponds. It means you can enjoy Japanese art inside of the building and Japanese tranquil silence in the garden.

Fantastic tour of Hakone

Hiro is an excellent tour guide! He designed a fantastic day trip visit to Hakone for our family of 8 and was highly communicative and organized both leading up to our tour date, as well as during our visit to Hakone. We got very lucky with stunning views of Mt. Fuji and appreciated Hiro's historical knowledge and Japanese cultural insights. I highly recommend booking your private tour with Hiro.

Amazing Day in Hakone

We loved our day with Hiroshi! He allowed us to plan a very specific itinerary of the 2 things we wanted to do in Hakone: Hike Mt. Kintoki and visit the Hakone Open Air museum. This required navigating and timing the trains and buses perfectly, which he easily did for us. Hiking with him was safe and fun and he shared great stories. Lunch at the top was a treat and resting our tired feet in the hot springs at the museum was an unexpected highlight. It was a stress free day in Hakone and we would love to travel with Hiroshi again.

Great time with Hiroshi

My wife and I had a great time wish Hiroshi. We did not have much time in Tokyo and having Hiroshi as a guide was a must. We had a chance to visit many places and most important learn about the culture and Japan history. Hiroshi was a 5 star guide! Also fun and great companion.
