First we’ll visit Meiji Shrine, a Shinto shrine dedicated to the great-great grandfather of the present emperor and nearby Harajuku, a very popular shopping area. Then I will take you to Asakusa, center of which lies a very old and popular Buddhist temple. Later we will enjoy a river cruise and visit Hamarikyu, a beautiful Japanese garden with sea-water ponds where you can enjoy green tea.

Tokyo Tour Reviews

Splendid guide, lovely traveling companion

My wife and I had a wonderful first-day tour of Tokyo with Yumi, who we wholeheartedly recommend as a personable, knowledgeable, energetic and able guide. Yumi worked closely with us in advance to tailor every detail of our day together and ensured that every need was met along the way. She seamlessly wove together the history, religion and culture of Japan to give us a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of this magical country. Thanks, Yumi!

Alan M.

Hi Alan, Thank you so much for your kind words. I also had a wonderful time with you, as you two were so nice! Now I really miss you, and hope you can come back to Tokyo in the near future so that I can show you more of it! Yumi

A rainy but still perfect day in Tokyo

I really enjoyed the day with Yumi a lot. Getting all the information about Shintoism and the late emperors of Japan when visiting the Mejii Jingo and Buddhism when visiting the Sensō-ji was wonderful. Closing the day in the quiet Hama-rikyu Gardens was perfect too. But I also enjoyed our conversations about „Gott und die Welt“ („all the world and his wife“ to save you from looking it up) which gave me so much insight into the Japanese culture and thinking. どうもありがとございます Yumi

Eduard K.

Eduard, Thank you so much for having me show you around Tokyo. I'm glad you enjoyed it although the weather was not so good. Yes, we talked about various things, and found many things in common in our different cultures, which was amazing! Please come back in the near future, as I would like to show you many other interesting places in Tokyo!

Excellent day in Tokyo with Yumi who was a delight to be with. She was very informative and kept the day interesting and adapted our day as required. His English is very good and his knowledge was excellent. She is extremely efficient and will help you with all your questions in Kyoto. I would highly recommend her. Paloma. Madrid (Spain)
