I highly Recommend Asia Highlights
For our first guide Jun, he was amazing. Very accommodating. Kept in good communication & kept us on time for our activities. Reached out to me the night before to confirm meet times and locations. Our driver for this time was also so kind & driver was always on time. For our second Guide , Ho. He went above and beyond. He stayed in great communication. Stayed later with us on one of the days because we were worried about riding the train back alone but wanted to visit at the shopping center a littler longer, so he stayed with us and made sure we got off on the right stop! During our time with him he took pictures of us and sent them to us! He was very knowledgeable about every place we visited. He was kind and patient with our large group. He made our trip easy & memorable. The driver we had for this timeframe was also kind & always on time! We felt a bond with both guides given to us! If you want an easy going, stress free trip book with “Asia Highlights”!!!More

Wonderful Service from Sharon!
Sharon at Asia Highlights has been a HUGE help in planning our trip to Japan later this year. From her initial contact to finalization of the plan, she has been very responsive, professional, patient, and knowledgeable. She was able to quickly propose an amazing itinerary and helped us customize it for our interests. She also made many great recommendations and gave us tips for the trip. I wasn’t familiar with Asia Highlights before I reached out, but after Sharon’s wonderful service, I have full confidence in them. I can’t wait for the trip and I hope it’s as awesome as Sharon’s service!!!More

A great way to plan a dream vacation
Due to circumstances, we had to delay our trip to Japan so this review is only about the process of designing the trip. Albee was always available, responsive to our goals, and competent. Based on how involved he was with our family trip, we know we will be back next year and resuming the plan he built. Really impressed with the quality and extent of resources we found through Albee and KimKim.More

They needed a Spanish guide and she coordinated everything so they wouldn’t have any trouble when they got there. She was so patient changing and adjusting the itinerary to their needs and wants, it’s been a total pleasure working with her and she always responds promptly to any question I have. I definitely recommend this company and if you can ask to work with Alisa.More

Itinerary in Detail
We can arrange plenty of authentic local activities to help create memorable experiences along the way. We also ensure great dining and shopping experiences are available. Of course, all of the following is adjustable according to your preferences!
Welcome to Tokyo — the capital of Japan that offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture, and dining to its visitors.
Arrive in Tokyo International Airport (HND) and we'll transport you to your hotel with a private transfer. Catch the night atmosphere of downtown Tokyo and sample various local delicacies (if there is time available after arrival).
Witness the best of the Tokyo metropolis and taste its world-famous local cuisine:
- Board a helicopter and experience the beauty of both urban and rural Japan, admiring Mt. Fuji from the air.
- Take a journey into medieval Japan while riding a one-man rickshaw in Asakusa — a historical area of Tokyo. Learn about historied sites and houses that date back to the Edo Period (1603–1867).
- Finish the day with an incredible Japanese seafood dinner.
Ready to sample the local flavors... and learn how they're made?
- First, we would tour the famous Toyosu Fish Market and shop for ingredients there.
- Then, open and fillet the fish with an experienced sushi master chef.
- Create your own sushi and enjoy them during a luxury sushi lunch.
- Discover Tokyo's sake culture in the afternoon.
This is a special day for experiencing the local culture and traditional elements of the Yamato nation:
- Dress up for a short photoshoot wearing a traditional Japanese kimono outfit and learn its history.
- Practice the physical and mental training regimens required to become an elite ninja warrior.
- Be entertained by geishas schooled in the traditional arts of hospitality.
- Free & easy for a good rest and shopping before heading to the airport for your flight home.
- We hope your journey home allows you to happily digest your Tokyo experience!
- A Tokyo International Airport private transfer would ease your "bon voyage" or yoi tabi.
