This tour offers you a glimpse of fundamental Japanese culture. Fukagawa is a historical neighborhood near central Tokyo and has a great collection of sightseeing spots.
(1)Enjoy a stroll through a beautiful circuit-style Japanese Garden with stepping stones at Kiyosumi Gardens.
(2)Experience Fukagawa Edo Museum, which is a life-size recreation of the town in the early 19th century.
(3)Observe a spectacular fire ritual at Fukagawa Fudodo.
(4)Visit Tomioka Hachimangu shrine. The shrine itself is not only serene and beautiful, but also has unique aspects such as memorials of sumo wrestling, and a display of huge portable shrines.
I am Japanese born and bred, but spent many happy years in Canada studying English and I have raised my children in the UK. During my time in the UK, I volunteered and introduced Japanese language and culture to local schools.
I have been involved with introducing Japanese culture to foreigners for many years and enjoyed interacting with people. Additionally, teaching people about Japan in the UK naturally lead me to become a guide to help foreign visitors produce a fun and memorable trip to Japan.
It’s so rewarding when the guests are truly happy and satisfied after their day with me.
I love hiking, traveling, Japanese history, music, visiting museums, gardens, eating out, and a nice cold beer!
Looking forward to show you around Tokyo!
