APR 2013 / Tokyo Travel Plan
Language: English, 日本語
I am currently a Junior studying abroad for one year at ICU in Tokyo.
I lived in Texas (in America) and Accra (in Ghana, West Africa) when I was younger - so I love exploring different cultures.
I love Japanese food, culture, and fashion; if you have any free time, I would love to meet up!
Work and Education:
Mariko is so amazing. She is absolutely fantastic. Mariko took me to the Tsukiji Fish Market to watch the early morning Tuna Auction.
I stayed at a nearby Manga Cafe overnight (since we had to get there really early in the morning); she met up with me at 3:45am.
She knew all about the auction. She had all the history and she was really fun to talk to. Afterwards she took me around the inter and outer markets.
Mariko is wonderful - you should totally do her Tsukiji Fish Market tour!
Kaji was great. He knows everything about Tokyo. He took us by electric bike all throughout the backstreets of Tokyo. He took us to some great photo ops, showed us some great sights, sushi, and got us to bike through the really crowded Shibuya crossing. It was kind of terrifying. I've never biked in such crowded area.
Kaji is a really friendly guide; his English is excellent. I totally recommend his Lost in Translation tour! You will learn so much!
Miyo was so great! She definitely knew the area really well, and had all sort of information for us.
She was really easy to talk to, fun, energetic, and GREAT at speaking English!
She knew all the hidden spots in Asakusa really well. And she even helped us get out fortunes told.
Thank you Miyo~
Saya was GREAT! I had so much fun!
She took me to all of her favorite spot in Osaka (like a giant red ferris wheel on the top of a huge building, a super-famous takoyaki restaurant, a famous okonomiyaki restaurant, Maid-purikura, shopping, a traditional tea house, and a nice bar).
Saya is so wonderful :)
I made a great friend in Osaka. She speaks not only Japanese and English, but also Chinese and Korean.
She also taught me a lot of useful Kansai-ben to use!
Saya is so wonderful, I totally recommend this tour to EVERYONE!
Chika was so wonderful!
She had an amazing tour planed for my friends and I (all of us are from America).
We went to the museum of fake foods, got to buy lots of good omiyage gifts, and take lots of pictures of the fake food.
Then she took us to a neat amusement park and to a super-scary haunted house (that I was too scared to go on).
She is really fun to talk to and has a bunch of great ideas. I completely recommend her tour!
Hitomi was a wonderful guide.
My friend was visiting Tokyo for the weekend; we meet Hitomi (and her friend) in Asakusa and walked around the Sensoji temple.
Hitomi was incredibly friendly and pointed out all sorts of traditional snacks/sweets to try.
Later we went to Sky Tree and hung out in a coffee shop for a while.
Along with Japanese, she speaks English wonderfully - so there was no language barrier.
I completely recommend her~
Kazuya was so wonderful!
Him and his friend toured me and my friend around Tsukiji. He knew all about the different kinds of sushi, was very adventuresome, and very easy to talk to.
I highly recommend this activity! You will have lots of fun!
My friend and I met up with Gaku in Shibuya to go eat sushi.
It was my friend's first time in Tokyo - and Gaku was a great guide! We had a fantastic time at sushi, got to walk around Shibuya quite a bit, get desert, and take purikura.
Gaku is really, really nice - I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that wants to have a nice, chill time!
