What you'll do

We have a walk in the famous college town Waseda and see cultural places. The name Waseda is famous for Waseda University. This town has not only the famous university but also other historical places. We explore this cultural town. I'm an alumnus of the university, so this town is my backyard. I guide you into the university and Japanese gardens. While walking, I introduce an average life of Japanese university students and the history of this area. We meet up at the gate of Anahachiman-shrine, near Waseda station. First we come into Waseda university and have a short campus tour. I'm giving you an overview of this university and what is characteristic about Japanese university. Next, we move to two traditional Japanese gardens on foot. One is famous historical Japanese poet's garden. The other one is a traditional Japanese garden once owned by a samurai family. After walking, we drink Japanese tea in a traditional tea room. Lastly, we come back towards Waseda station.

I'm a national licensed guide interpreter. I've been guiding many tourists all over Japan. I have recommendations of touring in Japan, not only typical tourist sites but also places for locals. My favorite place is Waseda. Waseda is the name of a town and a university. The landmark of this town is Waseda University, one of the biggest universities in Japan. I was a student of the university, so I know this town very well. I can guide and let you feel like as if you were a local student.
