Por qué los viajeros eligen este tour
Su guía le muestra los lugares ocultos de épocas anteriores que son fáciles de perder. Encontrará establecimientos que permanecen fieles a sus orígenes, que en algunos casos se remontan a varios siglos. Por ejemplo, en una tienda de palillos del siglo XVIII, cada artículo viene envuelto a mano en un poema.
This tour was wonderful; our guides Aya and Ayaka were so kind, and showed shops that I otherwise would not have ventured into. Learning the history of some of the shops and trying the traditional snacks was awesome. I really enjoyed learning about the family-run ningyaki (probably wrote that wrong, but a sweet snack) store and watching the owner make it was so sweet. Also made a great friend on the tour :)
Our visit to the neighborhoods of Ningyocho and Nihonbashi was somewhat hampered by the continuing rain throughout the morning and early afternoon. However, our guide, Seishi (not sure of exact spelling), was more than capable of providing a magnificent walking tour, and along the way explaining a number of aspects of Japanese culture of which we were entirely unaware. The “Best of Tokyo” tour as described in the Viator info is precisely a street by street exploration of tiny crafts shops of all sorts, probably shops we would have ignored – hand made biscuit shop; fan shop (imagine delicately crafted fans); paper shop (imagine all manner of paper); sweets shop; incense shop; sushi shop; traditional candies and crackers shop. The middle of the tour was punctuated by a visit to a local temple in Ningyocho, the shrine of fertility (both desired fertility and fulfilled fertility, with entire families coming with a month old baby to give thanks for the healthy birth). Then instead of walking (as the normal tour would have done), we took the subway with Seishi to the Nihonbashi, more modern neighborhood, with some huge department stores and the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Here we still found some small craft stores, e.g. a toothpick store (in case you forgot your toothpick holder!), a gold leaf craft and jewelry store, and a soup stand in a huge mall CorEdo).
Since this was the first day of our trip, and due to the rain (and jet lag) we might just have stayed indoors, going on this tour was a super way to get out and about, to start to become oriented to Tokyo (we took our first subway in order to get to the rendezvous point), and to discover an entire array of commercial products that are, understandably, off the beaten path! Lots of walking is required, but almost entirely on flat surfaces. Because of the shrine visit, a more modest kind of dress is desirable.
If you look carefully there are artisans in small Tokyo shops making traditional objects and foods. Our guide taught us how to open our eyes and find these remaining keepers of craftsmanship. And now I know the proper ritual for offering a prayer at a Shinto Shrine!
We had a guide on his first day. He was nervous, too quiet and his english was difficult to understand. He was accompanied by a more experienced guide who wanted to give him latitude, but the tour was painfully slow and disjointed. Not sure why we stopped at a couple of the shops and frankly got very limited information about the area regardless. It was not worth half the money we paid for the tour and candidly I can not recommend it. Sorry.
Great tour, loved walking around through Tokyo with a small group and tasted all kinds of stuff, from cookies to icecream to mest pastries. The tour does not go to the shops that are mentioned in the description of the tour, too bad for that. Would definitely recommend!
This was a great way to see a different part of Tokyo. Our guide was great and we saw many businesses which had been in business for at least 100 years. We sampled the food and saw individually crafted tooth picks. This was a great tour.
