Michie was an excellent guide thru Tsukiji. She was knowledgeable about food and who the best vendors were, and led us thru trying some amazing dishes! Her English was excellent, and she was outgoing and extremely nice as well. she worked information about Japanese culture into the morning to help give our good experiences context. As an added aside, I have some mobility issues and walk distances with a cane. She was considerate of that and let us take a couple of breaks without missing a beat. our morning at Tsukiji was wonderful, and made a million times better by having Michie as a guide.
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.
We had to book a transfer because we were arriving at 2am and there were no trains or buses available. It is much more expensive, but there were no other options. However, everything went very smoothly. Our driver was there waiting for us with our names on a sign, he spoke English, he was friendly, the car was modern and clean, and he drove us to the door of our accommodation (which was excellent at that time of morning!)
Transfer service was as promised. Schedule was followed, meeting place was right were it was indicated. Was a bit worried since I couldn’t add transport provider to the Line app just in case something went wrong. But thankfully it was smooth sailing all the way.
The driver was already waiting for us when we arrived and we had a pleasant ride from the airport to the hotel.
