Spending half a day with Hide-san was a great pleasure and an excellent introduction to Tokyo. In my view there is no substitute for seeing a city from the perspective of someone who lives there and Hide's tour gives you that opportunity. That's not just a question of the contrast between the Edo-era shrines and market of Asakusa and the full-on neon of the pop-culture scene in Akihabara, but rather, someone like Hide to point out the cultural and historical continuity between the two.
