Excellent tour
Excellent tour to know a real life of local Tokyo people with their houses, restaurants, temples, shrines, and shops. Yoshimi is an excellent tour guide.

Walking tour of Yanaka with Arika. It was a very wet day but enjoyed the walk immensely. All instructions for meeting point were accurate and clear and the follow up with photos emailed to us on the sights was great.

We spent the morning walking Yanaka with a private guide, Sumiko, who was very knowledgeable and friendly. We toured temples and shrines, stopped for a delicious lunch as our son was starving! We finished up the tour shopping in an area with wonderful, authentic Japanese products - we didn't want to purchase goods made in another country. It's hard to believe that you're in Tokyo while walking Yanaka; it's peaceful, quiet and beautiful.

Yoshimi (Yo) was an informative, fun and friendly guide through the history and back streets of Yanaka. We had a group of four and it was a relaxed and enjoyable experience across nearly four hours as we chatted and explored. Highly recommended.

Wonderful insight into a beautiful corner of Tokyo

I had an amazing tour of Yanaka with Naoko as my guide. As it happened, that day I was her only guest. Naoko is personable. flexible, and knowledgeable - she answered my million and one questions about Japan - and she also had thought of everything, including taking photos of me along the way to send later. The tour was paced well, and Naoko was very sensitive to whether I needed a break, or was curious to veer in a different direction. Yanaka itself is a charming and surprising corner of Tokyo - peaceful, artsy, full of history and atmosphere. There are lovely surprises around every corner. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you are interested in history and want to see a place outside the typical tourist spots in the city.

I loved this tour. I had taken tours of other more well-known Tokyo neighborhoods such as Akihabara and Harajuku, and Yanaka was not on my radar as I hadn’t heard it talked about much. I am so glad I took the tour though! It covered a quiet and historic part of Tokyo that I never would have seen otherwise and that is entirely different from the other neighborhoods I’ve toured. And, most important, our guide was wonderful—she took us to several unique and/or historic shops, cafes, and food stands that were by far the best part of the tour. And, the shrine we visited, though not as famous as Meiji, was the prettiest I’ve seen in Tokyo. Our guide was also very sweet. I highly recommend this tour!
