* A traveler said: "I was very lucky that it was just myself and the guide, Fumiko on this tour. Fumiko has an excellent English, very friendly and knowledgeable. She made the effort of finding out things for me like where to get Pokemon stuffs for my son :) Our tour started at Kuromon market and Fumiko introduced me to various wonderful arrays of food and snacks that I wouldn’t have tried if I were to go around on my own. We explored the touristy areas and little alleyways. One of my favourites was the visit to Hozenji temple. An evening visit to the temple with lanterns all lit up was very romantic. We then went to Shinsekai to try more delicious food. The neighbourhood has an old charm feeling to it and you can find a group of old men playing Go & Shogi. I had the most wonderful evening with Fumiko! Thank you! 😀"
