Yutaka Yokoyama is a nationally certified English-speaking guide who can help you unlock some of Tokyo’s best-kept secrets. His wealth of experience in the industry and his knowledge of Japanese culture and history will illuminate a Tokyo that cannot be seen just on the surface. Yutaka can design a fascinating, personalized tour for you, catering to either your spirit of adventure or your special interest in history, culture, architecture, and/or food.
Your private tour with Yutaka will begin at your hotel or other desired meeting location, where he will have everything arranged for your time together. Spend the day exploring justifiably popular sites such as Ueno Park, Meiji Shrine and Asakusa, or get off the beaten path with strolls around some of Tokyo’s hidden pleasures. Yutaka can also take you to the finest boutiques and markets in the city, including the renowned Nakamise Shopping arcade. What souvenirs for family? A kimono for yourself? You will find whatever you are looking for while exploring the hubs of the Ginza, Omotesando, Shinjuku and Shibuya shopping districts.
Have children? No need to worry, Yutaka’s guide service welcomes tourists from any age group. Children can enjoy fun areas such as Akihabara, a district that focuses on anime and videogames, and later visit the cos-players in Harajuku. Or maybe you’ve come to visit Japan on a honeymoon trip? Tokyo has an array of romantic settings, such as the sea-front district of Odaiba or the Tokyo Tower night view of the city.
After a day filled with sightseeing, Yutaka can suggest Tokyo’s best restaurants, depending on what your taste buds fancy. Sushi and shabu-shabu are just two of the traditional cuisines you can pick from, and if you’re feeling a little adventurous your humble guide knows some of the most delicious (and safest) blowfish restaurants around.
Yutaka’s affordable fee starts from 20,000 yen for four hours or 30,000 for eight hours, with groups of up to four participants. Local transportation is used for both atmospheric and practical purposes, and a taxi could be arranged at any time for tired legs (meals and transportation costs are not included in the basic fee). For inquiries in English, Yutaka can be easily reached via the contact form on his website.
So why not discover Tokyo for a day with a helping hand?
