Nobu was a fantastic guide! We really liked the mix of sights he took us to -a beautiful shrine and temple, park with landscaping,water and rock features, young people's street with shops, lunch at the "best" sobu noodle restaurant, and last was going to be department store bottom level food court. He did a wonderful job explaining customs and cultural nuances. He also showed us how to use the subway system which helped the whole rest of our time in Tokyo. He is very engaging and knowledgeable.
