Showed me Harajuku and more !
Martina was my guide in Tokyo last week for 2 hours and I couldn’t recommend her enough. I specified in my email when booking that I wanted to see Harajuku and the kawaii fashion. She met me at my nearest train station and showed me how to buy tickets and which lines to take then we headed to Takeshita and made our way down the busy street. She pointed out lots of things and provided facts and anecdotes about the culture of Harajuku within Japan. She also took me round to see the luxury shops not 5 mins from the whacky bargains of Takeshita which was an interesting contrast! Beautiful architecture and lots of dressed up doggies to watch. She then led me back to the station and left me with some tips on where to see cherry blossom as most of the city had passed the season. Martina was great help and good to chat to, I’d recommend using City Unscripted for an immersive experience of any nooks and crannies you wouldn’t normally see.
