Tokyo: Shinagawa Temples and Gardens Private Walking Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 4.5 hours
this was extremely good experience. I took my colleagues from other countries, but they loved this experience as this involves not just bay cruise, but full course dinner and all you can drink! we also loved how this dinner cruise involves many other local groups on board which make it really authentic experience. they made stops at 2 points where you can overlook Tokyo skytree and Rainbow bridge and there, you can go up on the roof and take picture. boat staff rent us traditional wear. just need to be aware that departing time of this boat is varied depending on the date and condition, supplier sent us update me on when the dinner cruise depart when they finalized so need to check email.
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.
Great experience! Highly recommended. Although the trip was in Nihongo, the staff did their best to ensure that we were having a great time! Delicious food!
fantastic and authentic experience. the Yakatabune crew were lovely and the food amazing! thank you
