A Recent Review of this guide
Izumi was a wonderful guide to Tokyo. This two half day tours were perfect for a birds' eye view of the city. I was traveling with elder parents and Izumi was able to cater to all our requests. In two days, we were able to see Tsukiji market, Asakusa, Rippongi, Shibuya and Harajuku. I highly recommend her to anyone who'd like to see an overview of Tokyo while having free time to shop and explore on your own in the afternoon. Thanks again for showing us around Tokyo, Izumi!
