Yanesen is a quite unique area in Tokyo. Because this area has escaped from major disasters like big Tokyo earthquake in 1923, it still maintains old nostalgic streets and many historical temples in quiet atmosphere. Let's explore this area with me looking for "hidden gems".

Perfect day!

We could not have seen half of the areas without Mack. He was so well prepared for our day and also flexible with us. He managed the train route and stops so well. We would have been lost without him. Thank you so, so much Mack! Wish you were with for two more days. We would know Tokyo so much better with you! Val & Keith, Canada

Japan has four seasons and each season has its own beauty. I hope I can help you again to explore another beauty next time. Please enjoy the rest of your trip. Mack

Good, organized way to navigate Tokyo on 1st day

Mack was very organized prior to our arrival in Tokyo. He corresponded quickly and was not only able to plan our itinerary but make restaurant recommendations and bookings for a big party. On the day of, he was on time. He knew the subway system well and the details of each site. We were the very first to request a visit to a hedgehog cafe which he researched and arranged for us to go to without a hitch. He was accommodating and helped us (a large group of 8) through Tokyo which seems a relatively hard thing to do in such a busy city. Thanks Mack for always making sure we were always well taken care of.

Art tour of Tokyo

Mack is one of the most amazing guides I have ever had the pleasure of being escorted by on a tour. He worked around all my mental and physical issues to ensure we cover as much as possible on our trip. I was so amazed and truly touched when he sent me a postcard with the Yayoi Kusama Museum when I was in Kyoto. I was really wanting to see the museum but they had no availability so he sent me a postcard and a table cover with the museum on it. Thank you Mack for making my trip to Tokyo so completely memorable!

Mack H.

Dear Anupa San Thank you for your kind words for me. I did my best and I am glad to hear you enjoyed our tour. This time we had limited time. I hope you visit gain to explore our culture further. Please take care. Best regards, Mack
