  1. 1
    Setagaya Hachiman Shrine

    This Shinto shrine was established more than 900 years ago and has long been worshipped by local people as a guardian shrine of the community. Other than the colorful shrine building, you will visit a large open space used for a special purpose at annual festival and a tiny subsidiary shrine by a small but beautiful pond and mini-waterfall. Enjoy the serene atmosphere and guess what the space is used for.

  2. 2
    Gotokuji temple

    Built in late 15c, this Buddhist temple, although not so large in scale, has a lot to offer; a very Japanese view with scattering maple trees and a three-story pagoda, a large incense burner with a roaring Chinese lion on top, etc. Above all, however, its biggest charm is hundreds of beckoning cat figurines. The temple has a fascinating story which links it with the cats, and you will learn it in this tour!

  3. 3
    Local administrator's residence

    For about 300 years this building was used as the office/residence of Oba family, a rich farmer family whose head in many generations had served as a local administrator for a powerful samurai lord who owned the area. You can have a look at this traditional farm house and visit its kitchen with old kitchen stoves.


Fun-loving Tokyoite

Hi, I'm Yumi. I'm a government-certified tour guide, born and grew up in Tokyo. I am a sociable person and love to meet and talk with people with different cultural backgrounds. I think the greatest charm of Tokyo is that the old and the new coexist with each other. In my virtual tours I would like to take you to fascinating places such as the Lucky Cat Temple with countless beckoning cats, a park which boasts a wide variety of relocated and restored old Japanese buildings that make you feel as if you went back in time, or a fashionable shopping street lined with unique modern buildings designed by world-famous Japanese architects, etc. Now, let’s start your adventure with me and enjoy Tokyo to the fullest!
