Tour: Taste of Yanaka, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Apr 4, 2015

This tour is called "Taste of Yanaka" but we hardly tasted at all. We stopped by two shops for sweets and they were unique to their own, which were great. But that was hardly "taste," more like sampling. I expected a little more than that. Also, The summary had Ginza Yanaka as a place to cover, but we didn't go there at all. I felt we spent too much time wandering in the cemetery, which I thought was rather morbid. I traveled to see different things, not cemeteries.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We visited Monumental Image of Buddha,Last Shogun Tomb,Shitamachi Museum Annex, organic rice cracker store,traditional cake store,old temples,traditional houses in hidden alleys,food store,Modern Art Museum and privately owned wood block print museum upon request.I did my very best to fulfill all your family's request.Your requested pace was slow so we could not visit Yanaka Ginza.I am sorry I could not meet your high expectation but take your comments into consideration for the future of this tour.
