Hello, my name is Uchida, now living in Shinagawa, Tokyo. My house is located between two famous shopping streets, Togoshi and Musako, which are full of unique shops and hearty people.
When I visited foreign countries, I was greatly welcomed by local people. So I would like to help you feel the same by guiding you in my tour. My favorite things are mountain-climbing, origami (paper-folding), reading books, etc. As I work full-time, I will guide the tour after the work from 18:00 during weekdays, and any day-time during weekends.

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo We had a real good time discovering the most "authentic" Tokyo! Our host was super nice to us and patient when we were shopping ;)
    Specially if you're new in Japan and want to do something different from the usual tourist spots I'd highly recommend this experience!

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo I had been to Tokyo a couple times before, but had only seen the glitzy Ginza area or the touristy Asakusa area. This time I was interested in seeing the 'real' Tokyo - where the locals live and shop.

    Our tour guide Ayuho met us promptly at the arranged time and we set off on our journey. We stopped into a nearby temple, where she showed us how to properly bow and pray. Then it was off to a local shopping street and some nearby parks to see some cherry blossoms in bloom.

    It was very interesting wandering around the residential streets, and Ayuho was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we might have. We all had a great time and would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to see what Tokyo is like away from the tourist areas.

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo We visited this toward the end of our trip, and I wasn't sure what else we could possibly see in Japan that would seem fresh or unique. Boy, was I wrong! We were amazed at the history of the shops, and the friendliness of the people. I learned about an area that we would have otherwise missed, and it became a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended!

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo

    Discover the quiet shopping streets of Togoshi/Musako, Tokyo Ayuho walked with me to many shops that she has known for years and had often added information about the history of many of them and the families that have often run them for 30, 40, 50 years. Most of these shops make a lot of what they sell in the back of their stores and there is a lot of pride and quality put into what they sell. There was a lot of old Tokyo that I experienced in the 21st century.
    We started and ended at shrines. The first is larger and gave Ayuho a chance to tell me about Buddhism and Shintoism. The last was where one of the main roads in the Edo period ran and for hundreds of years there were small shrines along the way where travelers prayed for safe travels. Now there are cars and houses and stores have been moved a little bit away. Here 3 small shrines have been brought together and it would be easy to miss or know it's history without the help of someone like Ayuho. This is where the neighborhood comes on a regular basis to have a private time with these old, small shrines.
    Ayuho's English is very good and we spoke about many things of Japan and added to the little things I love to find out about to see a little bit more what makes Japan what I encounter as I move through the country. She was also very curious to hear about the USA. We spoke of the similarities and the differences.
    Thank you, Ayuho
