Our guides Yasushi and Yoko were exceptional. This is the part of Tokyo not many tourists would bother venturing to. The guides took us to out of the way shrines, temples and sights not found in tourist guidebooks. The whole day moves along at a pleasant pace. Even navigating the Tokyo traffic on bikes was easy. Highly recommended.

This tour was fabulous from beginning to end. We were taken through areas of Tokyo that were fabulous and educational-and not touristy. We got to see the real Tokyo! We stopped in the most gorgeous Mitsubishi koi and turtle park and had lunch and went to an interesting temple and met sumo wrestlers!
