Saya Christina was our host and she was amazing and our 10 & 8 year old boys fell in love with her. Saya was very knowledgeable and helpful with teaching us our navigation skills needed to get around to other activities after our time with her. We had such a good time at the Shrine and then visiting Harajuku and the Totti Candy factory. We finished our tour at the Shibuya Crossing and watched some people on a Mario Cart tour. I highly recommend using Saya she’s very fluent in English and is awesome with little ones. Thank you Saya for an amazing morning!
Give yourself at least a day or so to get used to the Japanese metro system, especially if you don't know the language. Navigating your way around the stations, especially the major hubs, can be daunting, to say the least. But once you have grasped the basics of what to look for (like the color of the line, the code number, the before and after station names, etc., to know which way you're headed), then you become more confident and it all becomes a breeze.
Our guide Naoko was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and accommodated our requests for specific things and areas to see. She navigated the metro for us and moved fast so we saw a lot. She is very passionate about her job and it shows. She even looked after our two boys ages 10 & 7 when crossing a street and in crowded areas. We have a friend for life!
Saya was a friendly local guide who gave a good overview of the local sights visiting Meijii shrine, Akihabara, Shibuya and Shinjuku. It was great to learn to use the train system before embarking on the rest of our trip. She gave us great food recommendations and found this a excellent way to begin our time in Tokyo.
Our guide was very knowledgeable , an Italian guy who has lived in Tokyo for several years, we had a day and he maximised our time. Super flex and always asked what next to make sure our family was enjoying the experience
