Tokyo: Food and Culture Private Guided Tour
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 6 hours
per group up to 3
Give yourself at least a day or so to get used to the Japanese metro system, especially if you don't know the language. Navigating your way around the stations, especially the major hubs, can be daunting, to say the least. But once you have grasped the basics of what to look for (like the color of the line, the code number, the before and after station names, etc., to know which way you're headed), then you become more confident and it all becomes a breeze.
We had to book a transfer because we were arriving at 2am and there were no trains or buses available. It is much more expensive, but there were no other options. However, everything went very smoothly. Our driver was there waiting for us with our names on a sign, he spoke English, he was friendly, the car was modern and clean, and he drove us to the door of our accommodation (which was excellent at that time of morning!)
Our guide Naoko was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and accommodated our requests for specific things and areas to see. She navigated the metro for us and moved fast so we saw a lot. She is very passionate about her job and it shows. She even looked after our two boys ages 10 & 7 when crossing a street and in crowded areas. We have a friend for life!
Our guide was very knowledgeable , an Italian guy who has lived in Tokyo for several years, we had a day and he maximised our time. Super flex and always asked what next to make sure our family was enjoying the experience
Sachimi was a wonderful guide. She took us around the popular spots and gave us a great flavor for Tokyo. She also took us to a veggie ramen place which we all enjoyed. Overall would do this again with Japan wonder.
