What to Expect

Tsukiji is an exciting place to visit to see different world from our normal life. There is only outer market and inner market which used to be a popular place for visitors was moved to a new place.

Outer market is for retailers and fun to see and you can find Japanese food culture. You can buy whatever you like and there are many restaurants to offer their own original dishes. If you like Tsukiji, you can spend easily 3 hours .

Ryogoku is another very exciting place in Tokyo. It is about 15 minutes by subway from Tsukiji. Ryogoku is famous for Sumo because there is an arena named "Ryogoku Kokugi-Kan" which is translated to Sumo Arena and where grand sumo tournament is held 3 times a year. In Ryogoku area, there are many kinds of sumo related restaurants and stores. In Tsukiji, everybody wishes to eat Sushi. Then In Ryogoku, "Chan-ko" which is a special food for Sumo wrestlers, is very popular. Some Chan-ko specialty restaurants are run by former professional Sumo wrestlers. And some restaurants have Sumo ring inside of the restaurants. Also, you can buy Sumo related souvenirs at specialty stores.

Inside of Ryogoku Kokugikan, there is a "Sumo museum" which is opened for public except grand sumo tournament period. You can see some special items actually used by sumo wrestlers.

Next to Ryogoku kokugi-kan, there is a huge building which is Edo Tokyo museum. This museum is specialized for 17th century and after. This is a great place to know people's life in Edo which is current Tokyo and you will find many new facts in this museum. If you are interested in Japanese history, you can easily spend 3 hours or more. Even you are not familiar with Japanese history, you can enjoy various displays and recognize the difference in life from Western world.

After Edo Tokyo museum, we will visit a newly opened Sumida Hokusai museum which locates 10 min. walk from Edo Tokyo museum. Sumida is a name of location and Hokusai is a famous Ukiyoe painter who made over 30,000 drawings in his life. In the museum, Hokusai's actual drawings are displayed and you will learn more.

In this tour , you will see and find Japanese lifestyle and culture from 17th Century. And if you wish to visit other places, please let me know. I will arrange the places to visit based on your request.

One day guidance in Tokyo

Hiroshi did a great job guiding us in Tokyo. He was very attentive to our needs given that we had a 1 year old baby with us and we had already seen many of Tokyo's attractions before meeting Hiroshi. He carefully chose the pending top spots and gave us a great experience explaining the history and context behind each location. Hiroshi is also very friendly and easy going with a nice sense of humor; my wife and I were very happy to have met him. Thank you Hiroshi.

Hiroshi Y.

Dear Fadi Thank you very much for the gtest review. I enjoyed being with your family. I was wondering how you spent on Jan 1 which is really a special day for Jaoanese. There are many other places to visit in Japan and hope to be your guide in future. Thank you again and best regards Hiroshi

Wonderful day bad ending

Hiroshi is a very nice man and very good at what he does. We had a lovely day in the Hakone area , on one of the most beautiful days. Hiroshi was very patient and fair , when the forecast was bad, he rescheduled our tour for a better day. We really appreciated that. We understood that we would pay for his travel In Hakone, but did not expect any other surprise expenses. In fact I emailed Hiroshi to ask what was not covered in his fee , weeks before the trip. I was very clear that I did not want any surprise expenses. He told me there was the ticket in Hakone to pay for and that my passo card could not be used there. As we said good bye in the train station we were suddenly asked for his travel going to meet us in Yokohama and his trip home from Yokohama. We were surprised and felt this was NOT our agreement. We were also insulted because we took him for lunch and desert after lunch. Which we felt was over and above what we had to do. Even if he forgot to tell us about this extra fee when I asked in my email, we feel, given how kind we were, he should NOT have asked us for anymore money. For this reason, we will NEVER use his services again. Susan and David Rosenberg

Hiroshi Y.

Susan Thank you for your revieew. But did you see voucher of the tour? If you see it, you will find clearly that my transportation cost 7,524 yen was NOT included in the tour price you paid to Triplelights. What I learn from you is I should remind the cost before the tour.

Afternoon and evening in Tokyo

Hiroshi made great use of out limited cruise shore time, In an afternoon and evening he enabled us to experience modern, historical, cultural and aethestic aspects of the city leaving us so we left having felt we had been throgh an informed imersive day. He is a charming and likeable guide and we are most grateful for the good time we had with him.

Hiroshi Y.

Dear David Thank you very much for writing a good review about thr tour. I enjoyed a lot with you and your wife. Your interest to our culture helped me to search places which you may satisfy. As I mentioned Nezu art museum is a not big museum. However I like the place very much because of real Japanese atmosphere which the museum has. Please make another chance to come to Japan and I wish to be your guide again to show more of Japan. Best regards Hiroshi
