Yanaka is the district whose an old town ambience reminiscent of Tokyo from past decades still survives. I had lived here for 2 years and I am very familiar with this area. Especially it is very beautiful in Sakura season.

5) Fish market explore at Tsukiji outer fish market

It is a central kitchen in Japan for food. Tsukiji fish market was one of the biggest fish market in the world. In 2018, main wholesalers has moved in new place called Toyosu. So we do not see a lot fish wholesalers here but Tsukiji still keeps old fish market atmosphere. There are app 400 shops and restaurants. We will make a visit at outstanding shops. We can find fresh fish, vegetables/fruit, Japanese traditional seafood snack food-related products such as knives and tableware. Let`s enjoy finger food at this gourmet site!

6) Beauty of pin tress and seasonal flowers explore in Imperial palace garden

I love this East garden park to walk around and enjoy seasonal flowers. It is hard to believe that we are in the central of Tokyo because there is so much green. We can find remaining basement of Japanese castle here. I would like to explain how the emperor system works in Japan and the history of Edo era app 400 years ago.

7) Japanese garden explore in Hama-rikyu garden

It is Japanese style public garden near from Tokyo bay. The park itself surrounded by a seawater. This park had belonged to the Shogun Tokugawa family in the 17th century.

For the weekend, it will be car-free shopping street. There are a lot of luxury boutiques and last fashion in Ginza. My recommendation is a chopstick shop in Ginza.

For kids, there are some space to relax and enjoy so we can visit there to take a break.

1 Day Trip Review

I have been guided by Takashi around Tokyo and Akiba for a short but very interesting trip during my lay-over time during the fight to my hometome. He was an excellent guide, very humble with very influential English speaking. I will definitely come back for another longer trip, there are still so many ppaces i wish to visit. I just love Japan!

Takashi I.

Dear Quy san Thank you very much for choosing my private tour and it was very fun to dig in Akihabara together. Not only visiting a maid cafe but also we visited Sushi shop operated by women chef. I am also happy that we could find great gifts for your family and friends during the tour. Please come back to Japan for your vacation next time.

Tour of Tsukiji Fish Market/Asakusa area

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market and Asakusa area with Takashi as our guide. His knowledge of Japanese culture and history, along with his excellent ability to communicate in English, allowed our multigenerational group to maximize our time in Tokyo. He guided us through busy streets and patiently explained about the various sights, foods and products along the way. We were able to experience and understand so much more of the culture as a result of our time with Takashi in Tokyo. Thank you!

Meiji Jingu & Harajuku

We are a family of four, with two kids aged 13 and 12. Takashi met us at our hotel in Ginza, got us started with Pasmo cards to use for train tickets, and guided us for most of a day. He took us first to the Meiji Jingu temple and showed us how to pass through each of the temple gates with appropriate respect (stop and bow at each gate), how to use the water ladles for purification before entering the main temple, and explained the locals use the various parts of the temple. At nearby Takeshita Street in Harajuku, our kids were fascinated with the colours, the costumes, and the photo booths. Lunch at the Kawaii monster cafe was a highlight. Takashi was patient with us and gave us excellent explanations in answer to all our questions.

Takashi I.

Hello! It was great to see you and your family. And thank you very much for your sweet gifts from New Zealand! Harajuku area is one of the unique area in Japan. It was nice to try photo booth (we call Print club) as Japanese girls in Harajuku. And we enjoyed time at the Kawaii monster cafe a lot. They just started Halloween decoration for foods and the food decoration was amazing. Please come back to Japan for your vacation. I would like to recommend to visit other cities Osaka & Kyoto next time. It is different from Tokyo and you will find different food, culture and people!
