Must see places in Tokyo

5 hours

This tour covers major sightseeing spots, Tsukiji outer-Market, Hamarikyu traditional garden, and Asakusa in 5 hours. The outer market has many retail shops and sushi restaurants, so you can still enjoy the bustling market street. After feeling the energy of the market, we move to a beautiful traditional garden, Hamarikyu. It was once a palace and garden of Tokugawa shoguns. From the garden, we ride on a water bus that runs to Asakusa. Please enjoy a one-hour Sumida river cruise to Asakusa.

Shibuya & Gyukatsu

We enjoyed the lights and excitement of Shibuya with Michiko. She guided us to areas that would have been nearly impossible to see on our own. She is energetic and friendly - a great guide!

Aloha Daralyn! Thank you for giving me an excellent review. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the Shibuya at night. Thank you for inviting me to have delicious GYUKATSU with you. I really enjoyed dinner with all of you. Your gift of Hawaiian sweets is delicious, and I ate them all only in two days. Thank you again! Michiko.

Perfect day in adventure for a family group of all ages

Michiko was an absolute star with a family group including teenagers and younger children. We experienced things that we should and small moments of delight for the younger ones arrived at just the right time. Our metro 101 with her sufficient for us to then take on by ourselves for the next two days. We were thrilled to have spent our day with Michiko and would highly recommend her. Airlie
