(More) My local guide Agustina did great designing our Tokyo itinerary. We had four full days and a family of three looking for an action packed days in Tokyo. The order of experiences and the choice of food options was great. Our favourite spots were Sometaro for food experience and Ippudo for ramen in particular, Kobe beef Kaiseki 511 was great for lunch. Art / culture experience was great at Ukiyo-e Ota Museum. DiverCity best for shopping and the whole ride to Odaiba was fun. We left Kabukiza Theatre for the last day with the one act experience and now I'd like to come back for more. First time Tokyo, but not the last. All three of us loved the plan you've tailored for us. I am glad I've come across tripUniq and decided to give it a go. Thank you Agustina 🙏 😊it was a pleasure to work with you on our Japan experience. (Less)
