I can't even begin to explain how amazing this tour was. It was more than anything I ever expected. The tour guide was really an expert in Shintoism and was an amazing teacher and guide for the day. I met the tour guide at Harajuku Station where he explained the detailed itinerary to me before we reached the first shrine we would visit for the day. He took me to a total of 3 shrines that day and each one was very different from each other. I really enjoyed learning about the relationship of Shinto and Japanese people and to be able to perform the prayers correctly when we visited the shrines.
I also added the Yanaka tour after the Shinto tour and that really added to the overall experience in learning about Japanese culture. I loved the old Japan atmosphere there and just seeing how Japanese people live on a daily basis.
This is by far one of the most professional tours I have ever been on and I learned more on this tour than at any other time during my 7 days visiting Japan. This is a great tour for anyone who wants to truly experience what Japan is about.
