Yoshika arrived on time at the Capitol Hotel where we were staying during our visit to Tokyo. She was very friendly and spoke very good English.
Travelled on train which was easy for wheelchair user, rail staff very helpful.
We found the train very easy and the station were very helpful.
Our first stop was Tsukiji fish market. We arrived before it got busy. Amazing selection of fish and Japanese food. Tasted many samples.
Had a nice lunch in Tempura restaurant at Asakusa.
Then we visited Sensoji Buddhist Temple, very enjoyable.
Our final location was Meiji Shinto Shrine. It is a lovely tranquil and beautiful place and well worth visiting.
While we were there we witnessed a traditional Japanese wedding with traditional dress, a pleasant lucky surprise.
Yoshika accompanied us back to hotel. It was a well chosen tour and we could not have asked for a better guide

We had booked our tour in advance of our holiday. Yoshika met us at the Capitol Hotel at the time arranged. We travelled to each location by train. It was so easy as Yoshika sorted out our tickets for the trains, which were fully accessible for wheelchair users. We would never have been able to do it on our own.
It was a lovely sunny day. We enjoyed the Fish Market and our first experience of Japanese food in a restaurant chosen by Yoshika. She did not rush us and allowed us plenty of time to see everything and explained the history and culture of everywhere we visited. Seeing a traditional Japanese wedding was special.
Yoshika accompanied us back to our hotel. It was a most enjoyable day and Karen and I would highly recommend booking a tour with Japan World Travel. If we ever go to Tokyo again we would definitely use their Tour Guide Service.

We wanted to have a real feel for the city, and to use the metro to get around. Yoshika made it all possible, teaching us what to keep a look out for, and how to make transfers etc. She even made the extra effort to help us with translations for the rest of our trip, especially since I have seafood allergies. We enjoyed our day out with her, and learnt so much about the culture and history of Japan. :)
PS. I had also made a last minute booking for this and am very grateful for Japan Wonder Travel's speedy arrangement. Thank you so much!

I cannot speak highly enough of this tour. My brother and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day out with Naoko exploring Tokyo. Naoko had gone to enormous trouble to develop a personal itinerary for us and to check out our route in advance to ensure there were no complications with wheelchair access. She also had checked out a number of restaurants to find the most suitable for our needs. Her knowledge of the sites we visited was remarkable and her assistance with learning how to use the Tokyo Metro was greatly appreciated. In all it was a highly enjoyable experience with Naoko's company making it all the more pleasurable. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to tour Tokyo without accessibility concerns.

We had a one day wheelchair accessible highlights tour. We found our guide Kazo Kato very informative, he told us extremely interesting facts about Japanese culture and even performed a private tea ceremony for us in the park! Our tour started in the fish market where we were able to interact with local shoppers and to sample various types of Japanese foods. We visited the professional part and also the consumer part. We also observed the layout of the market from the Hospital building to see the new bridge that will eventually form part of the Olympic venue for 2020. We were fortunate enough to travel to the market in a new type taxi that is accessible which will be used for the Olympics too. We had lunch in a tempura restaurant in Barneys of New York which was delicious - we learnt which condiments went with which piece of tempura and more etiquette for eating fine Japanese cuisine. Whilst we were in the park we even saw a wedding photographing ceremony with the couple in full Japanese costume. Overall, Kazu was a fantastic guide who showed us behind the scenes of many places of interest - we thank him again and hope you are lucky enough that he is your guide when you book up!
