For people who are excited to have tours in Tokyo!

In this tour, I will take you famous sightseeing places such as Asakusa, Shibuya, Fish-market, Tokyo Sky tree and popular ramen shop.

I've been living in Shinjuku area for over 25 years which is why I'm so familiar with Tokyo and its "complicated transportation system". So you don't have to worry about anything, just trust me!


This is a 6-hour, original and private tour.
* The tour can be extended up to 8 hours. Please inquire me for a quote.

Here is the list of options. Please select two or three places:

- Asakusa Sensoji Temple (temples, shrine, and famous shopping street).
- Meiji Jingu in Harajuku (Imperial shrine)
- Tsukiji Fish Market. *You can eat fresh sushi and lots of street food.

- Ueno Park (museum and zoo and cherry blossom from the end of March to 15th of April)

A Recent Review of this tour

This is an excellent little tour for families with teenagers- who want a diversion away from temples and shrines. Akemi-san was kind enough to share an insider's list of go to places for last season's pieces - places where models go to sell items post runway. My daughters were mightily impressed.
