Meiji Jingu is one of the most famous tourist destinations both from overseas and Japan. On new year's day, an incredibly-long line of people to pray there can be seen, which is yearly reported in TV news shows.

If lucky, we could get a glance of a wedding procession with priests. Newly-weds are in Japanese traditional wedding attires. This makes you reconfirm that you are truly in Japan.


Feel free to personalize this offer with NAMIE.

  • Meiji Jingu---Japanese traditional way of purifying when stepping into sacred area

  • Meiji Jingu--- coin toss into an offertory box (but the donation is not an obligation for visitors )

  • Meiji Jingu---watch many wish boards hung by visitors, and of course you can make your own if you like. Even Barak Obama and his administration staff made theirs here in 2014.(notes...Boards are to be removed every morning by the priests so you cannot take a look at Obama's.)

  • Harajuku---15 minutes' walk from Meiji Jingu. This is a good choice for every purpose such as eating, shopping, eaesthetic salons, and so on.

“ Great tour with Namie! ”

We truly enjoyed our one-day tour Tokyo with Namie. She's knowledgeable, kind, and sweet person.We have learned some Japanese culture and history while enjoying the landscape and scenery. We highly recommend Namie.


Hi, Tom. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Both you and your wife truly made me feel relaxed during the tour, which brings me a happy up-tempo walk. You had several good purchases at Bic Camera and that was an opportunity for me to learn to show my future customers how to grab the best price of quality items. I try to cover these kinds of shopping for foreign travellers. Thank you Tom, your shopping experience makes me a better guide! Take care. Give my best regard to Mindy. Namie

“ Great time visiting onsen and fake food workshop ”

I had a really enjoyable time with Namie. I had organised to meet with the owner of a fake food workshop as part of a research trip and she translated our conversations perfectly. We also visited an onsen in Shinjuku which was really lovely, we had hot stone therapy and enjoyed the baths. Namie made sure I was comfortable and was great to chat with, we had a wonderful day together - it was like hanging out with a friend!


Hello, thank you for the review. I really enjoyed my Saitama trip with you and it was a precious experience in the factory. You perfectly understood the owner's idea and sense, which he was happy about. I′m proud of having an artist like you as my guest! Now I feel more familiar with artistic things than before all thanks to you. Keep creative, believe in your sense! Hope you′ll make many other works in the future. Glad to meet you!(^^)

“ Patient, incredibly kind and knowledgeable tour guide ”

I had the absolute pleasure of having Namie show me around various parts of Tokyo for 4 days during my stay in Japan. I’m back in my home country now and have already raved about her to so many family and friends. I am not a seasoned traveller but I did have some places I wanted to visit that weren’t the typical touristy type of spots so Namie helped put together an itinerary that reflected my requests while also adding in some familiar landmarks too. Namie was a pleasure from Day One. Patient and upbeat. She helped me navigate the subway and train system with ease and precision. We covered a lot of ground each day and yet she was always mindful of my energy levels and very considerate to take breaks. I would not hesitate to book Namie again. She is a wealth of knowledge, and quite si... read more


Hi, Erena. I'm happy to hear that you're back to normal self after the terrible pain (Again, my apology that I couldn't be there.). Finally you made a day trip to Kyoto next day, which I got surprised about. You're such a unique and strong traveller, always looking around local things and trying to get the most of Japan. Honestly I was blind of art and furniture before you showed me your preferences, and now I feel I have more choices to suggest to my future customers. Thank you for opening up my eyes, Erena. You stepped me up, you made me have more guiding tips of me! That was a milestone encounter for me. Please say hi to your husband. Have a happy summer season in NZ!

“ Made a great friend while exploring Tokyo. ”

I came across TripleLights while looking for a rent-a-friend service and couldn't be happier with the results. Namie filled the role of friend, translator, tour guide, and good sport no matter what antics we had planned for the day. Namie did a good job preparing for the locations we intended to visit in Akihabara prior to meeting up (maid cafe, cosplay store, brandy bar, and art gallery). She may not of been an expert on them, but it didn't stop her from pointing out what factoids she could. Shortly into our 6 hour booking, she warmed up to our off-kilter sense of humor and sensed we were not looking for a tour guide, and simply wanted to spend time with a local. This was the magical moment when we discovered how warm and friendly Namie is, where I think she ended up having just as much f... read more


Mike, I was about to jump up from excitement because you gave me a five-star rate and best advertisement of me. You will surely make me get more customers′ bookings in the future. I appreciate it in advance! Each moment I spent with you, is really unforgettable for me, visiting art-focused places, jokeing at each other, having a sip of brandy...yes, exactly the way of friends passtime. I hope we can meet again someday in the future.
