Guia turística muito simpática, aprendi muito sobre história e cultura japonesa!
Foi divertido! Uma ótima maneira de explorar um bairro!
Thoroughly enjoyed Miki's company and the tour. Miki is knowledgeable and well-versed with the area, its sights and sounds. She added so much interesting insights that this lovely place simply came alive. We even got to taste traditional goodies as we walked and chatted. I had a really good time. No regrets joining the tour.
This was an excellent tour. The tour started with visits to a shrine and a temple - the guide was excellent on the history, background and what to do on visiting shrines and temples. We then wandered slowly through backstreets. The guide was personable, interesting and highly informative. She shared interesting useful bits of information and her own liking of Kagurazaka shone through. It rained and was cold that day so the bar visit including hot sake and snacks at the end of the tour was very welcome!
We were lucky enough for it to be just my sister and I walking with our guide Tak, who was lovely. Very interesting going in and out of little lanes and alleys and getting the history on it all. The weather was not ideal, it was raining on and off but we still had a great time. No rushing around, it's a fairly gentle pace. We were shouted a drink and yakitori in a tiny bar at the end of it. Our guide even got on the train with us to ensure we got back to our hotel okay! It was also great to be able to chat to him about life in Tokyo.
Fantastic tour especially good because our guide Miki San was so knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. She was fantastic!
WOULD NOt RECOMMEND THIS AT ALL! Save your money and book a walking tour thru Voyogin. We booked 3 walking trips while in Tokyo and totally enjoyed the other two. This one was very disappointing as they take you thru one shop after another, with a few historical places thrown in. Very little actual History given and the guides knowledge of the area seemed lacking. We do feel the guide tried but that she was going by a cardboard script that was very dry, no life to it. Also our Japanese exchange student had to transulate most of the tour for us. We left the tour early as it was one shopping experience too many..... For the money paid we expected more History.
This is an interesting tour and takes you into areas and laneways you are unlikely to find on your own. The only drawbacks are that you have to walk into the area and so for the first 20-30 minutes there is not a lot of interest and it is quite a lot if walking at a brisk pace. I estimate it was 5-6 kms, not the 2-3 we were expecting and it challenged my 77 year old father.
I had the advantage of being the only person on the tour so it was a an opportunity to chat to my guide and to find out not just about where we walked, but about life in modern day Tokyo and Japan. Joy was a very interesting and friendly guide, very enthusiastic about her subject. It was an extremely interesting tour with lovely discoveries tucked away down the tiny streets. To end the tour in a typical bar, the size of a front room, for a drink and a Japanese snack was a great end to the afternoon.
Intriguing tour but little to see as area has been built over. Guide did his best but looking at lots of closed doors wasn't much fun.
