A Recent Review of this tour

Morimasa was a wonderful tour guide and we highly recommend him. We learned so much about Tokyo that we will not forget - from interesting facts about Japanese history, culture, and customs - to how to buy a Pasmo card and order veggie soba noodles. We saw a Buddhist temple, a Shinto shrine, a busy market, beautiful gardens, and more. Morimasa is an engaging, worldly individual with a great sense of humor - a true gentleman and excellent company throughout the 6.5 hour tour.
