5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Yoko and Yasushi gifted us with a wonderful experience exploring parts of Tokyo that you would not find on your own. They truly enjoy giving tours and sharing their city with tourists. We were guided through the streets of Tokyo stopping at a hidden candy shop were Yoko and Yasushi showed us how Japanese kids learned to budget. We saw shinto shrines and Buddhist temples were we learned the differences between the two type of structures and saw some fantastic traditions. We got to sneak in on a Buddhist ceremony were most foreigners don't get to see. Getting to meet sumo wrestlers was fantastic, so was the little restaurant next to the training facility where we attempted to eat like the sumo wrestlers. Yasushi is very knowledgeable about sumo culture and where to meet them if its the off season. The tour was fantastic and we were able to experience a part of Tokyo which you normally don't get to see by yourself or on other tours. We highly recommend this tour and will tour with them on our next visit to Tokyo!
