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.
It was difficult to communicate with the staff and understand all the restrictions save for that an absolutely wonderful place. It was extremely clean and although I was nervous about the non use of swimwear... I felt absolutely comfortable and enjoyed several hours there. Highly recommend.
This is a great way to start our visit to Tokyo. Soon as we arrived the rail passes were waiting at the hotel, so soon we dropped off our bags we could head out exploring. Ruled out the stress of trying to workout how to get rail tickets.
The purchasing process was easy. Shortly after, I got an e-mail from the travel agency. I ended up making some adjustments, which was easy enough and the travel agent was very friendly and helpful.
