I really appreciated the fact that Dice was able to meet us at the port, where our cruise ship docked. Arriving in a new City like Tokyo can be very overwhelming and having him there to meet us was very nice. We took the bus and subway to our hotel and dropped off our luggage to begin our full day tour. Dice put together a Tokyo tour agenda, printed our in detail with times, color pictures and many details.
We first visited the Asakusa Temple, then onto the Edo Tokyo Museum and then lunch at the Tsukiji Fish market, which was all very enjoyable, even though it was raining.
Then onto the Odiba shopping mall. We then went back to our hotel to clean up before dinner. We stayed at The Prince Park Tower, right next to the Tokyo Tower, which was really beautiful.
We then went to dinner at Nada Man, which Dice had made reservations for in advance. Dice had told me that it would cost between $80.00 – 110.00 US Dollars per person, which I was ok with, but the bill ended up being $477.93 US dollars, and 41,580 Yen, which was excessive for three people.
The food was beautifully presented and it was a beautiful place, but I could not eat most of the food presented because it was served raw, and was not to my taste. We enjoyed spending time with Dice and appreciated all of his time and hard work in arranging our Tokyo Tour, but would suggest in the future he suggest a less expensive place to have dinner, with some cooked options to eat. I would definately refer people to aitaiJapan in their future visits to Tokyo.
