Set-itineraries or tailor-made
Great for visitors who have just arrived in the city, and you can spend some time with a local guide and get oriented in the city. While you want to go to the must-see sights, you wouldn't want to miss hidden gems. Yet time is limited. This tour will resolve your dilemma, and provide your the best possible combination of the two kinds.

Our six-hour tour with Takaaki was wonderful. He met us at our hotel and together we planned our day, focusing on three major sites. Thanks to his knowledge of the city, he easily navigated us around using bus, taxi and subway. We were very pleased with his commentary on the various aspects of each site - he certainly knew his "stuff" and was able to answer all our questions. As seniors, we appreciated his concern for our well being with regard to walking. We would not hesitate to recommend him.
