Thanks Karen both for the wonderful review itself but especially for taking time to write a long review almost 10 months after the tours! It's almost your birthday again (time does fly by), I wish we could host you here again for that :)

I was hesitant to visit Japan for 14 days without going on a tour. I wanted to arrange tours in Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto and Hiroshima. Carl Kay seamlessly arranged private tours for my wife and myself that fulfilled our desires, not those of a tour...More

I've done the Otaku tour twice and it was amazing both times. This is not your typical history or museum tour... (Although they offer those, too.) The Otaku tour is a deep look into the vibrant and strange geek culture of modern Japan and Akihabara....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
