JAN 2014 / Tokyo Travel Plan
I'm a nerd. I like computers, programming, electronics, and gadgets. I also enjoy comics and manga and anime, etc... I've lately grown a strong interest in Japanese culture and language and intend to spend some time there when possible increasing my proficiency in Japanese and learning more about the culture. I'm fairly laid back, but with definite likes and dislikes. Feel free to say hi anytime.
We had a great time with Momoko at an izakaya in Shinjuku. We highly recommend using this meetrip as a great opportunity to have a local with you at this traditional type of Japanese restaurant. It really broadens the experience when you don't need to depend on english translated menus which often time are poor translations or have things missing that you could get if you can read the Japanese menu. We had a ton of fun with this.
Sachiko was an excellent host. We first got a meal in Omoide Yokochō which was excellent, and we got some history about this really old area of great eats. Afterwards, Sachiko took us on a walk around Kabukicho and the Golden Gai areas of Shinjuku and was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the history of things in Japan's famous red light district. My wife and I were really impressed by the tour and being able to learn some of the more interesting history and functions of the area and how it differs from what a lot of westerners believe a red light district should be.
We're grateful to Sachiko for being an awesome host and showing us around for the evening. We highly recommend any of her tours!
Maika was an a great guide. We had a wonderful time at the museum of natural history and then went to a maid cafe for lunch which was a ton of fun. Maika helped us navigate the experience wonderfully and was really fun to spend time with. We highly recommend a tour with her!
Mariko was an excellent tour guide. I was able to see the geekiest parts of Akihabara. I got to look around some of the old parts of Akihabara where it's still Akihabara Electric Town, and you can find small shops down narrow hallways in tiny malls that only sell cable adapters, or LED light strips. I also got to see some great Doujin and Figurine shops. Thanks so much for the wonderful tour! If you're a nerd/geek visiting Tokyo and want a great tour of Akihabara, please try to make some time to have Mariko show you around!
Ryota was an excellent guide, we spent several hours in Akihabara together. I got to see some parts I had no idea about, such as an airsoft shooting range and some really great used bookstores. It was an awesome adventure and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Ryota as a tour guide to anybody visiting Tokyo!
