My most exciting things to do in Tokyo

One of the most exciting things to do is to visit the traditional Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. Meiji Jingo Shrine in the center of Tokyo is one of the best choice to visit because it has a long history and you can walk through the forest of the shrine.

Walking tour Tokyo

Noriko was a great guide for our family of 4 on our first day in Japan. She showed us how to get the subway, took us to all the places we wanted to go at a good pace; and a highlight was her showing us how to eat monjayjaki. Thanks so much!

A typical saturday in Tokyo

We had already visited the major attractions so we asked our guide to take us to areas which she liked and thought we should see. We started with Tokyo station, there after Ginza area, then she showed us the blooming Ginko trees. We then went to Meiji Jingu and were lucky enough to spot a traditional shinto style wedding take Place. We were supposed to go to Yoyogi Park but as it was raining we skipped that part. Instead we ended our tour in Harajuko, Walking around and then had lunch at a traditional japanese restaurant. Our guide was very pleasant and serviceminded. We would have appreciated if she had told us more about Tokyo and japanes Life by her self, now we had to ask all the questions. It also seemed liked she was afraid to share her personal view, her answers were very political correct. But overall, we were very pleased with our tour.
