Original immersion in local Japanese culture
Feb 2019 • Friends
Alongside with a Japanese guide, I had a great time learning about the local specialities and local history. Nagoya Endoji was a commercial intersection and its history is really useful to understand the one of the city in itself. I had a great time learning about traditionnal culture (temple, shrine, food market and handmade kimono) and experiencing some local food. The guide was speaking a perfect English, could answer all of our questions and was really nice ! Thanks for your time, it was such a complete tour.

Good for everyone!
This guided tour is a really nice chance to not only learn new things about the local area but also about Japan in general.

Mayuko, the lovely guide, will give you a lot of nice information on local temples, shrines & statues and explain their significance or history. It is never too much information and always useful. She will tell you about the cultural differences compared to the western countries. However, local pubs and restaurants are also shown. In case you have been wondering about some items in the supermarkets, Mayuko can even explain all of those to you and give you a nice orientation.

As for the food, there are 2 takeaway souvenirs and 2 takeaway snacks. They are really typical for Japan and super delicious.

In conclusion, this tour gives you an accurate idea of what Food, religion and culture is like in Japan. Nevertheless, due to the precise and interesting annotations on specific things of that local area, you will still learn a lot - Even if you have been in Japan for quite a while already and I would recommend to everyone. 😌✌🏻

Great tour to explore the Endoji street and the surrounding.
Jan 2019 • Solo
Mayukoto was our guide, she speaks very well English ( rare in Japan), she explains us a lots about japanese temples, rites, history, samurai and food during 2 hours.
It was a nice moment to share with the group, she was aware to answer for any questions. she also did the translation between us and the seller we met ( kimono, traditional shoes store).
So for the conclusion, i learn a lot during this turn and it was fun.
I advise for anyone.

One of the best tours I ever had!
This two hour tour was amazing! For an affordable price you get a real adventure. Our guide was very knowledgeable, easy going and fun. She was very polite and answered all the questions we asked.

My favorite part was going to the local grocery store. This was a great way to get familiarzed with Japanese food. Our guide was great at highlighting key products.

I really enjoyed the tour and I would do it again.

An amazing tour to discover the secrets of Endoji Street (and surroundings) in Nagoya!
Nov 2018 • Solo
I really enjoyed this guided tour as it was very cozy and I did not feel like a tourist. We took the time to explore the Endoji Shopping Street and the area around! It was so interesting and fun to discover the secrets of the district: the temples, the shops, the food, the history… Thanks to the guide who spoke English and Japanese, we could communicate and ask questions to the shop owners, who were all very happy to talk with us and did not expect us to buy anything in return. I definitely recommend this tour if you want to explore the less-explored side of Nagoya (and if you want to eat some delicious food!!)

Nov 2018 • Couples
The Tour begann in front of the Nagonoya a lovely caffee in the endoji shopping street.
Mayuko our tourguide took us through the neighbourhood explaining things about japanese culture, temples, foodculture and much more. She was super friendly and i had the feeling she did know everything about the place and it's history. We visited shrines and temples, we tasted japanese food and sweets, got to know shops, such as a traditional kimono store. Through the tour i got to learn a lot about eating habbits and temple culture.
Thanks for the great tour Mayuko.
10/10, would recommend!

A real cultural experience
Nov 2018 • Solo
A guided jump into the local culture of Endoji.

At this tour we visited several temple and shrines, some hidden around corners or on building roofs, but all of them with their own charm.

We were introduced to the history of Endoji and its shopping street. And visited family run businesses that trail back for over 5 generations.
And we had a chance to speak to those and other people. They went to lengths to show us their goods and answered all our questions, while knowing we wouldn't buy anything. And in case someone didn't speak Japanese, our guide translated everything for a smooth communication.

Also our guide answered every question with ease, related to Endoji and Japan in general.

We were shown around and inconspicuous shops and streets unfolded their stories as we passed them by.
To top all of this of, we also tried different foods from local shops.

All in all it was a very exciting tour and I can encourage everyone to try it themself.

Exploring the Endoji Shopping Street and surroundings
Nov 2018 • Friends
We visited temples and shrines and some little beautiful local shops in this area. In some of those stores we tried some very good local specialties and we learned some interesting facts about them. We met the owner of those little shops and could ask some questions and we had a few very interesting talks with them.
It was a very funny and interesting guided tour and we had a lot of fun exploring the Endoji Shopping Street. I was surprised, because i didn't felt like a tourist during this guided tour, rather like a friend of those very kind local people and the friendly guide.
I definitely recommend this entertaining tour, especially if you want to learn more about the local stores, traditions and the people in this area.
