Things to know


    Yohei was a great guide. He helped plan the itinerary according to my wishes prior to the tour and was accommodating throughout. He was knowledgeable throughout and answered all of my queries. We visited several locations including two shrines, the Imperial Palace, and gardens.

    Fantastic to see a part of Tokyo we didn’t know about and never would have found. Really enjoyed the company of our guide Sergio and his insights into Japanese culture. Ate lots of delicious things at lots of different and interesting places.

    beautiful experience. our guide Edris Rahimi was very helpful and friendly, willing, informed on places, traditions, means of transport and very skilled in speaking the Japanese language. unfortunately it was the last day in Tokyo, otherwise we would have liked to have more toured the city with him

    From Honmonji Temple to Kappabashi Street to the Imperial Palace, we have seen and heard many great things about Tokyo, its history and attractions. Even the spiritual side was not too short! Marcus has a lot of knowledge about temples and religious customs, as well as history in the area of Tokyo and gave us unforgettable insights into the culture of Japan.
