Hi, I’m Yoshi and I enjoy walking through Meiji Shrine every morning to commute . It’s such a great experience of walking through leafy forest and make a wish at the Meiji Shrine in the morning.

A relaxing way to spend the morning. Yoshi is really generous with sharing his knowledge about Japanese history and culture. The brunch was delicious and also a great way to get some tips about sight-seeing. Thanks for the great experience!

Yoshi was a fantastic tour guide. Very friendly and attentive. Japan is full of beautiful shrines and temples and we wanted to learn more about them so we decided to do the walking tour at Meiji Shrine where Yoshi taught us proper shrine ettiquite and gave us some of the history. Understanding the nuances at the shrines will now allow us to fully appreciate them during our stay in Japan. Thank you Yoshi! Looking forward to the bar hopping tour too.

We really enjoyed our time with Yoshi. We got to experience a beautiful part of Tokyo and learn how to respectfully experience Shrines in an interactive and enjoyable way! The breakfast after was a lot of fun - and still learned a lot! Highly recommend! A great way to start your trip so you're armed with knowledge and understanding as you explore Japan.

We decided to take this tour for our first visit to a Shinto shrine. It was very helpful to learn the symbolism and etiquette. Yoshimura was very personable and a great guide.

With the small group it was better to get to ask all the questions and understand the history shrine and origins of customs. It's a great entry for further exploration of other shrines for your own or just revisiting the same one on your own pace.

Yoshi was a great tour guide. Because there were only two of us attending the tour, we were able to have a more personal experience. Yoshi was very knowledgeable and good at storytelling, so we left with a better understanding of the Meiji shrine, the history behind it, and Shintoism. Having the tour in the morning was great too, as the shrine was not too crowded. After, he took us to a very nice cafe where we had yummy chicken pot pies. Thank you Yoshi!
