Private Yokohama Tour - History, Culture and Food

By Hello! Tokyo Tours
About
Yokohama is an incredible waterside port city steeped in history and packed with fun attractions. Only 45 minutes from Tokyo a day trip to Yokohama is a must-do. This Yokohama tour is a carefully curated mix of history, culture and food. Over the course of this full-day tour, you will explore Yokohama through the eyes of the immigrants who arrived into Japan, through the port in the mid-1800s. This private tour includes a boat ride around the harbour, a visit to the historic Hikawa Maru (early Japanese ocean liner) and a traditional Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. In addition, you will explore Yamate Hill, a residential district where the early western settlers lived, and Minato Mirai; the waterfront district home to the Red Brick Warehouse, a boutique shopping outlet where we can pick up some unique souvenirs.

      Hello! Tokyo Tours are fantastic
      USE THIS COMPANY, they are simply great! 😊 Oh my, from beginning to end, this company have been fantastic. Their email communications before our tour were friendly, efficient, and very helpful. But the star of our Hello! Tokyo tour was Miko. We had only just landed in Tokyo after a 17 journey and were very tired, so Miko guided us for 6 hours around all the main sites tailoring the tour as our energy levels waned; she found the best places to see the sites (the highlights being Shibuya Crossing, Gyoen Park Shinjuku, and the absolute gem of a music show in the Nihombashi Mitsukoshi Store); she found us the most delicious food and drink; she helped us navigate the transport system; and told us information that we would never have found in a guide book. To top it all off, she took photos of us both that we would never have managed on our own. Without doubt the best tour we have done, with the best tour guide. I promise you will not be disappointed, and it was definitely money well spent.

      Delicious Tokyo
      A very nice tour to get to know Tokyo from the past through the present to the future. It would be almost impossible for a foreign visitor to find so many special stores, locations and local delicacies at once. Yasu is a great guide who speaks perfect English and always take care of everyone. All in all highly recommended!

      A genuine local tour
      Yasu is one of the best guides I've ever met. His itinerary was well-planned, minimizing travel time as much as possible. He also fulfilled all my travel requests and shared many stories and perspectives from the locals. It was a very enjoyable day for me.

      Not Lost in Translation!
      We had the opportunity to join Miko of Hello! Tokyo Tours for a 5.5 hour food tour of Tokyo. Although I have been to Tokyo multiple times over the years, this was the first time I had the opportunity to do a food tour and Miko did not disappoint. The tour was structured in such a way as to consider Tokyo’s food culture in its past, as in the Nihombashi area, present as in Ginza and Yurakucho areas, and future, ending in Akihabara. We learned about the cultural and societal history of Japan and Tokyo from the time before the Shogun to the present, including the salaryman with an eye towards the future. Two examples of the influence of foreign nations on Japanese cuisine, such as the Portuguese with Tempura and the British with the import of curry to Japan, and how the Japanese modified these were also discussed AND sampled! Miko’s background is in education and it showed. She’s alert, polite, professional, engaging and friendly! The tour itself was amazing and I’d highly recommend Hello! Tokyo Tours and Miko if you have the opportunity to enjoy this marvelous city and its incredible food and culture!

      Great Food Tour from planning to execution. The guide was amazing for the 5 and half an hour
      We joined a Food Tour of Tokyo with the amazing Paiva. The food tour was planned well and executed brilliantly. Paiva was engaging, resourceful, experienced, professional and brought to light with stories and history the different places we visited, tastings and meals we had! We would highly recommend using Hello! Tokyo Tours again!

      Great tours of Tokyo
      We did 2 very excellent tours with this company - Hello! Tokyo. Both were fantastic. We did a tour of Yokohama and then a tour which included lunch with a Geisha which was very authentic and entertaining. I highly recommend them.

      Food tour with sightseeing
      We had an awesome time with Miko as our tour guide. We saw places we would never have seen and tried food that we all loved, but would not have tried had we not met Miko. The tour was well planned out and we all loved it. We had a group of six. Miko is full of energy, vibrant and happy and really made this experience fun for us. We tried traditional food from the past, now and the future. We also went to other areas, so the tour incorporated sightseeing and food. Well worth doing if you are new to Tokyo.

      Hakone Tour
      Our tour guide, Paiva, was great. She guided us expertly around the subways and trains, including getting us seats. She answered all of our questions and was friendly and personable. Highly recommend this tour guide as she goes above and beyond.
