Lok was a fantastic tour guide - he was knowledgeable and friendly. Our kids enjoyed the tour as well. Very glad we decided to have a guide through this area and not just wander through ourselves as it gave so much more meaning, context and history, and appreciation for the temple, shrine, and surrounding neighborhood. We ended up going back to Hoppy St after the tour and followed our guides recommendations for food and drinks that made the day and experience even better.

It was very amazing tour, we learned a lot about Japan history and culture. The Guide was very organized and answered my questions clearly. Highly recommend it !
