Hi! I'm Toshihiko Tanizoe.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

We visit two temples of the Jodo sect of Buddhism in Tokyo. In this tour visitors can experience sitting on the tatami mat floor in a large Japanese style room to have a look at the spear of Hattori Hanzo,the head of Iga Ninja at Sainenji. And at Zojoji after looking at two gates we enjoy to observe the precious model of the mausoleum of Hidetada Tokugawa, the second shogun of the Tokugawa Shogunate in the temple’s museum and see the graves of six shoguns of the Tokugawa shogunate. The contrast between the view of the traditional style building of Zojoji and modern structure of Tokyo tower is splendid.

Hello! I am Toshihiko Tanizoe nicknamed Toshi, a National Licensed Tour Guide. I have lived or stayed in foreign countries for about 7 years. During that period I was given so much favor from local people. I think this is my turn to act as a tour guide in order to assist you visiting foreigners who want to really enjoy Japan. Particularly I am good at Japanese history. So if you will visit places related to historical matters with me, you are sure to get excited.
