What you’ll do

Oh, how jealous we’ll be of you as you explore a whimsical Tokyo dipped in pastel pink! You’ll spend some time with one of our hosts, who will take you out picnicking under the sakura (cherry blossoms) in your very own hanami (cherry blossom viewing) party. Depending on where the best blossoms are at the time of your viewing, your host will decide on two hanami locations for you, including both a famous park like Shinjuku Gyoen National Park, as well as a small garden and shrine. Begin your adventure into the senses by picking out your picnic snacks together in a nearby depachika (underground food hall). This is a great way to try a broad array of Japanese food - but be sure to grab some sakura mochi - delicious pink rice cakes wrapped in sakura leaves (and surprisingly, it’s also where you can find some exceptional sushi). These are the sweet treats of spring in Japan! Perhaps you’d like to view the blossoms whilst floating down a tranquil moat or even at night, but if you like where you are, stay, eat and chat to your host about the traditions of hanami as you enjoy this fleeting but enchanting time of year together.

Tokyo tour

Patrick is a warm, friendly, knowledgeable tour guide. The tour was 4 hours in duration and included and informal lunch. He homed in on our desire to see and learn about Japanese culture . We travel by subway trains to the old areas, North of Tokyo and took in the Sakura (cherry blossoms) that Patrick found for us so late in the season . We had an easy walk to shrines and historical buildings and stopped at one for a drink.

Thank you so much for recommending Ms. Noriko to us.

We had the privilege of having Ms. Noriko as our tourguide for half a day and we enjoyed her pleasant personality as well as her knowledge of the areas of Ueno and Shinjuku. She recommended a very good Japanese coffee shop and an excellent unagi restaurant and had one of our best meals in Tokyo because of her. She went the extra mile to try to give us a pleasant experience inspite of the fact that it rained continuously on the morning that we had allotted for taking pictures of the cherry blossom trees. She was able to juggle our schedule around so that the morning was not at all wasted.

Fantastic experience, doing 'discover Tokyo with a Host'. Kenji was amazing, so full of knowledge, and his English is fantastic. We went to places I didn't know about, and it was great fun.
