Meeting Point

At your hotel or a nearest spot convenient

Nakano; only five minutes by train from Shinjyuku, there is a most famous Otaku zone, called Nakano Broadway. Unlike its name, this is an old fashioned commercial building located at the bottom of a very busy shopping arcade, filled with full of small shops carrying all kinds of items related to this new evolving culture.

Akihabara; needless to say, this is a world famous zone for all types of Otaku culture, including Animes, Mangas, Video games, Cosplay costumes, Animal cafes, Maid Cafes etc etc.

Ikebukuro; 10 minutes north of Shinjyuku by train, there is a Otaku holy ground. The uniqueness of this zone is that it is dedicated to girls Otakus. Why not girls, if there are boys Otakus? There are many stores and coffee shops dedicated to these young feminin Otaku lovers.

Ending Point

What to Expect

If you are Otaku lover, yes, no need to say, but even if you are new to this charming culture, you can walk around with me and find a new trend of world famous Otaku culture. We may stop at one of the "coffee shops" to have an mysterious experience of subculture in Tokyo. If you are alone, you may hesitate, but let us be courageous to step in together, because in Japan there is a proverb saying if you are two or more, you are not afraid to cross the red light.

Tokyo in a day

Yoshihisa put together a tailor made itinerary which worked perfectly incorporating the highlights of Tokyo. We communicated well, exchanging ideas and information all in a very prompt and timely manner given the time difference. Yoshihisa is well travelled, charming and informative, l wouldn't hesitate to book him again or recommend.

Yoshihisa O.

Thank you Linda for your generous words. It was really an exciting moment that I traveled with you in Tokyo. Your enthusiasm of knowing about this city and country encouraged me a lot and made me feel rewarded when we finished our tour. Though we have covered a good part of the city, there are a lot more to dig into, so I trully look forward to seeing you again and share this great moment again with you. Yoshihisa

A tour guide and a friend.

The weather is cold and its raining, but this guy never stops showing us the views of Narita. It was almost 7pm when the tour was over, we’re about to leave Japan at the departure lobby when i found out that my bag is missing and realized i forgot the bag in the restaurant where we eat ramen. Yoshihisa is the first person entered into my mind to ask for help. He answered quickly without hesitation, he took the train, went back to the restaurant and brought my missing bag within 30min. I dont know how i will thank this guy that time. It’s our first time in Japan with a good guide, very professional, he got knowledge, speaks very calm and friendly, Its unforgettable. I highly recommend Yoshihisa for those who wanted to visit Japan, you can’t go wrong. Thank you so much Mister Yoshihisa, I hope we will see each other again my guide, and my friend. Ronel

Thank you Ronel for having stopt over to Narita despite your tight Schedule and also for your generous words. The weather was wet and cold, but was warm in my heart. From the moment that we met at the gate, I didn't feel like we met for the first time. I was glad that you enjoyed every feature of the temple, the gate, the insence burner, the tower, the front market etc. Yes, the incident at the end was a bit surprise, but even pleasant. It even added a good memory of our friendship. Now I can't believe that it was such a short period of time that we were together. You stay always in my heart with a good memory of an evening in Narita, and I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you . Yoshihisa

Very Helpful

I had Yoshihisa meet my family of 9 at the airport and get us to our accomodation in Shinagawa. He helped us get our train tickets, suica card and even hire a mobile phone. Fantastic commmunication. Highly recommend.

Yoshihisa O.

Thank you Serena for your generous comment. It was really a fun for me too to be with a family like yours. I hope you all had great time in Japan. Though it was unfortunate that we missed an Opportunity to spend a full day traveling in Tokyo because of the volcanic eruption in the Philippines, I am hoping that we have another Opportunity to meet and spend great time together like we did this time. Wishing all the best to you and your family, Yoshihisa

Walking Evening Tour in the heart of Tokyo

Tokyo
3 hours

The charm of Tokyo does not end after the evening falls, but it becomes even more brilliant at night. Here you have a choice of visiting some of the prominent night life zones, not necessarily high end, but more casual places where workers gather after their long day. If you a fan of Izakaya, we may be able to jump in at one of those and feel as if you became a Japanese business warrior.

Safe and Easy Transport from Narita to your Hotel

Narita

Narita airport is located 60km away from Tokyo, too costry to go by taxi (30k yen or even more), too complicated to go by public transportation system (many lines operated by different companies, tickets not always compatible, few signs in English etc. ). No worry any more. I can take you safely to you hotel.
