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.

Experience Old and Nostalgic Tokyo: Yanaka Walking Tour
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.

Yanaka: city of charming shrines and more

Yumi was an amazing tour guide who was very flexible and knowledgeable about the history of the shrines and the city of Yanaka. We stopped at many shrines, as well as an art gallery, sake shop and even an owl cafe! We enjoyed learning the customs and stopping for beautiful photos along the way. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to get a different side of busy, cosmopolitan Tokyo.

We had the best tour guide on our trip today. This was our 4th tour and Yumi provided us with so much information. We had a fabulous day. Yumi’s English was fantastic. Yumi also kept stopping regular to make sure we had a drink as it was a very hot day.

My husband and I took this tour. There were two additional people to join the tour. We saw parts of Tokyo that we would have missed. There are buildings dating before WWII -- not many. These have been preserved. We also visited an old cemetery and it was very interesting. I particularly enjoyed walking through some of the neighborhoods. There is a LOT of walking!! I would recommend this tour. Our guide was enthusiastic and helpful.

Excellent Guide

Experience Old and Nostalgic Tokyo: Yanaka Walking Tour
After confusion about the meeting point at the RR station due to miss wording , we got off to a good start. Only criticism was that there was much too much time spent in the cemetery looking at similar tomb stores and not enough time looking at sites. The beer garden site was a welcome stop. Recommend more time looking at interesting sites. We had little time of review the shopping areas. Overall a good tour.

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.
