    Best tour guide and experience in Tokyo


    This was by far the best tour that we did during our stay in Tokyo. Hakura was just amazing. She made us tour Tsukiji market and made us try some amazing food along the way. She spoke phenomenal English, and was extremely knowledgeable about the different fishes. She had answers to all the questions thrown at her and even made us tour the shrine close to the market which was great. The sushi place recommended was as good if not better as eating at any of the high end sushi places in Tokyo.
