We tried more than one guide in each city we visited and Keiko was astounding. Her English and knowledge of the subject matter was unbeatable. I wanted to go to the Tokyo National Museum and Seno-Ji Temple. Keiko had prepared in advance for the Museum tour and knew were we could find the specific Exhibits we were interested in. When...

Our tour guide was Miki and she was a pleasure. As promised in the tour she met us at our hotel and walked us to the train station, giving us some highlights about Tokyo on the way. She helped us get our pasmo cards replenished for the trip. Please be aware that as it says on the website you need... More

Our guide was able to work the sights around what we had already seen, and used the JR Rail as much as possible since we had a pass for the train system. She asked what our interest was for lunch, and gave us an amazing "local" experience we would never have ventured to do on our own. As an added... More

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to have been the only ones who booked this day because it was just us and Yuriko, our guide. We spent a lovely day discovering traditions in Asakusa, electronic city in Akihabara, fun sushi lunch in Shibuya, peaceful Meiji shrine and shopping in Harajuku. It was a great decision to book this tour... More

Having only one full day to spend in Tokyo, my husband and I thought it would be sensible to spend it with a knowledgeable person who could show us some of the highlights of the city and give us a short introduction to the city and Japanese culture and history. Keiko, with whom we had the privilege to spend our... More

We couldn't speak more highly of our experience. Our guide Yakko really went out of her way to show us so many different aspects of Japanese culture and was extremely knowledgable about the many places we visited. We left with a deeper appreciation of Japanese culture and a love for Tokyo. We especially liked that Yakko listened to us and... More

We had a day tour of Tokyo with a tour guide for us alone as nobody else booked it which was great! We saw the highlights of Tokyo and got a lot of information about the city, the history and the culture. Our guide was really friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. The tour is a perfect opportunity to discover the... More

Our full-day tour was planned on a relatively short note. Travelience support team always responded within 24 hrs and wes very organized and helpful. Our tour with Norico was full of historical, personal, and cultural connections. She discussed and adjusted our plan for the day easily. For our first and very short trip here, she was able to share historical... More

We had a fun and enriching day in Tokyo with Keiko. We visited temples, shrines, shopping areas and ate at a fun, automated sushi restaurant. The tour was called "trends and traditions," and it delivered on both accounts. I loved the diversity of what I got to see, which really made time fly. Keiko is an amazing guide. She has... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
