I met my guide at the designated meeting place near the station. She was early so we had extra time to get acquainted. I was the only on the tour so Kazumi was very flexible to my interests. She was informative, engaging, and warm - all along expressing her genuine love for the city and showing non-locals the insiders’ way around the market. She was prepared with literature, graphics and pictures. We had fantastic treats - exceptional quality of ingredients. I recommend this tour with Kazumi. One small recommendation: I would suggest shifting the tour time slightly to bridge the lunch time opening of some establishments in order to timely spread the tastings before, during, and after the lunch period.
What a nice way to start the day! We had a very interesting morning learning about Tsukiji market, Japanese history and food culture. It's a good way to have a feel of the market and the stalls without being completely clueless in a sea of options. Our guide, Akiko, was very sweet and tried her very best to answer our questions and explain about the different food and places we visited. She was definitely a highlight of the tour and made us feel very welcome in Japan. Sometimes our guide's English language knowledge wasn't enough to answer all our questions but she made the biggest effort to help.
Great tour guide, enjoyed the tour went very quickly as we stopped to enjoy the shops, history and sample the Japanese food. Our guide was very well informed and lovely. Would highly recommend. Family all said was well worth it and enjoyed the tour, even our 17 year old.
Kazumi, our guide, helped make our food tour of the markets a most amazing experience. She has a bright friendly personality, spoke English which was easy to understand and was happy to answer our questions with her wealth of local knowledge. Arigato Kazuni.
A guided tour through Harajuku and Shibuya was a great way to cover these key areas efficiently and cover the highlights. After the tour we wandered again through some of the areas we had been shown eg Cat Street and the cool little roads around there.
