Tokyo, the capital city of Japan has a lot to offer, from old to new, from handicrafts to high tech, from traditional art to anime and pop culture in just one city! Upon, visiting, you will be fascinated by how a city can have so many-sidedness. I, a Tokyoite who loves Tokyo, will help you get the most out of your visit because your time is precious. Your tour would not only be a memorable sight-seeing trip but also a splendid experience as well, through understanding the Japanese culture and Japanese spirits by the assistance of a local guide. Allow me to guide you and make you into a ‘Tokyo Fan’ just like me. I hope you have a great trip. Thank you!
