Awesome day tour
This is the first time I had a day tour that has no chartered bus! That said, this is where it gets interesting. We each had to get our own travel card (Suica card) to travel around the city using subways/metro train! How awesome is that?
I've seen on tv how Japanese rush hours are, but to be heading into one is a memorable experience. Even so, it wasn't the "real deal" as we commuted slightly later in the morning (around 10am), so what I saw was probably 65% of the actual rush hour.
We started going to the Asakusa area first, visiting the information tower level 8, to have a good view of the surrounding place. At this level, You are able to see the Japan Sky Tree clearly, along with the Asahi Beer Building.
After that scenic view, we headed to Kaminarimon Gate, aka the Thunder gate. Behind this very gate is a souvenir-laden street (known as Nakamise-Shoutengai) with so many colourful gift shops that I couldn't decide which shop to buy from.
At the end of the street lies the Sensoji Temple, another historic site that has plenty of history, such as the 2 brothers and the King who became a priest.
After the temple, we visited one of the most popular halal Ramen stall in the area: Naritaya! They served very affordable prices Ramen and drinks which I must say, tastes absolutely perfect. Good job Chef!
After the ramen lunch, we headed to another popular spot, the Shibuya scramble, a multi directional road crossing. This is a sight to see, especially when the traffic lights turned, everyone started crossing the road from every direction possible. It's a mess, but an Organised mess, so to say. Definitely worth to remember, especially after lying down on the road to pose for a pic during the mess. :)
The next point is a popular meeting spot, the Hachiko statue. The story of a dog that waited 8 years for its master to return. To commemorate the loyalty of the dog, a statue in its image is erected just at one end of the Shibuya Scramble crossing.
Thereafter, we headed to the Takeshita Street, another commercial shopping street that we got spoilt for choices.
Being a cheapskate singaporean (haha sorry to my fellow countrymen), we got stuck in Daiso. Here, the range of items are pretty awesome, spanning over 2 floors, and is housed in a standalone DAISO building, painted hot pink. How can one, NOT enter such an attractive place.
Later, we headed to the final site: the Meiji shrine. As the name suggests, it has to do with the Meiji emperor, a popular figure who implemented many changes which contributed to what Japan is today.
I must say that I've enjoyed the tour very much, especially at the flexibility of the guides to be able to change itinerary on the fly.
The two guides who accompanied us, Mr Takeshi-San and Miss Shizuko were very patient and very experienced. They know the places and history at the back of their mind and speaks English fluently.
I personally recommend this tour to ppl who hasn't visited Japan before and also those who loves walking and not so much into shopping.
Love the awesome tour
Thank you Takeshi-San, Naho-San and Yoko-San for the wonderful Muslim tour today. My family and I learned a lot about the Japanese culture, religion and language. We are happy for today and are looking forward to engage your company for our future Japan trips. Lastly, I really really LOVE the authentic Halal Japanese food!! That was a memorable one. And thank you for going all the way to show us the directions to other places although it was not in our itinerary. Best recommendation from us!

Une journée japonaise très Muslim Friendly !
Un tour de Tokyo en une journée et très Muslim friendly.
J'ai pu visiter les principaux spots tokyoïte en une journée et par la même occasion suivre les préceptes islamique en mangeant halal et la prière.
Mon guide était capable de répondre à toutes mes questions culturelles et nous avons pu discuter des différences et/ou similarités entre les religions (Bouddhisme, Shintoïsme et Islam).
Seul bémol peut être pour les personnes n'aimant pas trop marcher. Le circuit proposé pourrait être difficile à tenir en une journée mais l'équipe Omakase me semble ouverte à toutes demandes.
Great tour even better than expected. Perfect organisation of the tour adapted tout our special needs.
We highly recommend to book your tour with Omakase. Dont hesitate you wil save precious time visiting Tokyo with them and get much added value thanks to their experience and perfectly organised time schedule.
Very friendly and competent guides!
Wisata Islami di Tokyo
Tokyo, ibu kota yang cukup luas dan dipenuhi jutaan manusia serta ruwetnya jalur kereta dan transportasi yang dimilikinya. Untuk orang yang pertama kali ingin pergi ke Jepang, pasti banyak yang dikhawatirkan dan dicemaskan, apalagi sebagai seorang muslim. Kadang kita tidak tahu dimana kita bisa melakukan ibadah solat juga mengetahui makanan apakah yang halal di Jepang. Belum lagi ada kemungkinan tersesat dan kehilangan banyak waktu di jalan...
Tapi dengan bantuan dari orang yang ahli di bidang nya, semua kekhawatiran akan terpecahkan. Yup, dengan menyerahkan (omakase-suru) semuanya pada tim Omakase, jalan-jalan di Jepang pun jadi nyaman dan aman. Mereka akan mengatur jadwal, rute dan membawa kita ke masjid dan menunjukkan tempat makan yang halal. Tidak perlu meragukan lagi keahlian tim ini deh ^^
The tour guide (Yoko-san) was really helpful friendly and loving person. My kids love her! That day was really wet (raining the whole day) and walking with small children doesn't seems to be a smooth journey. Thanks to Yoko-san for her patience and guidance to make our day trip a wonderful journey. That is the best day in Tokyo I ever experience in this trip!
One day Muslim-Friendly Tour of Tokyo
This was a great way to experience Tokyo like a local. Its a one day walking tour so while exploring Tokyo you get to share stories and get to now Tokyo and the history behind each place you visit. I had a limited time in Tokyo so this was the best way to get around.
My guide for the day was Ms Yoko. I have nothing but praise for Ms Yoko. She was very attentive, considerate and polite through the day. She has good knowledge of the places we visited, the culture and she also has a good understanding of the need of a muslim tourist, which made the trip all the more great. Even after the tour ended , Ms Yoko was very helpful, which i appreciate so much.
Overall, from their response to you through email and up till the end of trip, everything was excellent.

Having just arrived in Tokyo the day before the Muslim Tour was an excellent start to my trip! I had a wonderful day with my awesome guide Takeshi who showed me great places around Tokyo in Asakusa, Shibuya and Shinjuku to name a few! He introduced me to Halal Japanese cuisine and how to go about finding Halal food in Japan! This was really helpful and I also learnt how to get around on the metro which was a perfect start to my trip as it set me up well. Thanks so much for all your kind help and a great day out! I strongly recommend the Muslim tour to all!
Nice informative tour
Nice and pleasant guide Ms Masayo. Share many experiences and knowledge on Japanese culture. Nice food too.
I have nothing but great words and emotions for this tour . Our tour guide was Yoko and she was extremely polite , helpful and knowledgeable . We cannot thank her enough as she went out of her way to help us and make us feel comfortable. She gave us information on culture and heritage which was amazing . The tour was very comprehensive and we loved every bit of it . I would recommend anyone coming for the first time to take this tour .
We took a one day Muslim friendly tour of Tokyo last week. Our guide was Shizuko who was very sincere, caring and helpful in navigating us through this great city. She took us to some famous sites in Tokyo, halal restaurant and finally to the famous Mosque in Tokyo where we offered our prayers. She also helped us understand the Tokyo subway system and followed us up through emails for our safety and security.
It was a wonderful time we had with the guided tour.
Great first time Tokyo experience with Sumiko-san
It was my first visit to Tokyo and the Muslim-friendly tour guided by Sumiko-san was just perfect in giving me the overview of the key attractions in Tokyo. The tour included a nice balance of history, cultural and shopping spots in Tokyo. Sumiko-san was very warm, informative and patient throughout the tour. She explained clearly the history of Japan as well as the lifestyle and culture of the Japanese which was really interesting and insightful. Sumiko-san also brought me to a halal place in Asakusa which served amazing sushi and sashimi. I truly appreciate Sumiko-san's kind patience and for being highly accommodating during the tour. She waited for me to say a prayer at Tokyo Camii, brought me to a specific store that I wanted to check out and also led the way to the shopping mall that I wanted to end my trip at, which was not even in the itinerary. Thank you for the great experience, Sumiko-san!
Very Lovely Tour
First time to Tokyo and guided by very lovely and warm person, Shizuko-san. She explained everything including destination that we decided to go by ourselves and even checked if we arrived safely at our hotel after our own trip. Thank you very much Shizuko-san.
A great fun day
Our guide Satoru was very nice & knowledgable about everything we ask. He really took good care of us for the whole tour. We started off to lake hakone what a wonderful view. Then to yeti resort with a nice background of mt fuji. Last but not least, we went to gotemba outlet! Satoru even give us extra hour because we arrived quite late due to traffic. Satoru even gave us advise for our next few days stay in tokyo. We really had a great and memorable day. Hope can meet you again satoru and the lovely people of Japan! Arigato!
Enjoying Tokyo Spotlights
I booked a Muslim Friendly Tour for my father. It was his first time to come to Japan. This what he said about the one-day tour: "Glad to have a short but great one day tour around the downtown Tokyo. It was a pleasure to be able to share some thoughts with Shizuko-san. I got new insights, new experiences (it was my first time to eat Sushi!), and had a great time in downtown Tokyo. Shizuko-san was being very nice to take lots of pictures of me roaming around tourist spots. I had many pictures that I can share with my family! Arigatou Gozaimasu"

A Taste of Tokyo
We decided to go on one-day Muslim guided tours in all three cities (Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo) as it is our first time visiting in Japan, and we wanted to get a feel before venturing out for ourselves.
Our tour guide for the day, Keiko-san met up with us at our apartment and walked us along the nearest park before heading to the first destination down the list of itinerary she prepared.
We first dropped by at the Tourist Information centre in Asakusa where Keiko-san introduced us to the features as well as the views can be seen from its 'tower'. Right after, we walked to Kaminarimon Gate where it was already crowded with tourists and locals alike. We took many photos together and very much enjoyed our walk through the street lined with many souvenir and food stalls before reaching Sensoji Temple. Keiko-san also showed us directions to the stalls where we can buy Halal souvenirs as well as to buy Melon Bread (me-ron-pan).
Keiko-san was also very flexible with the itinerary as we decided to walk through Asakusa (Hanayashiki Amusement park was closed at that time but she showed us the directions in case we wanted to drop by another time). We walked to a nearby Historical Crafts Exhibition Centre around the area and Keiko-san was very informative and thorough with her explanations.
For lunch, we went to Panga as myself and my wife insisted on wanting to eat yakiniku. The food is really delicious and filling. We enjoyed a good time and good hearty meal there together.
We made our way to the Shibuya crossing and took photos as people scrambled around to cross the roads. It certainly gave a hectic atmosphere but also an interesting experience to be in. Keiko-san also showed us famous statue of Hachiko and we took many photos with it too.
On our next stop, we went to the bustling Takeshita street and Omotesando of Harajuku area. It is certainly a very vibrant and lively place filled with fashion, music and food! There are also many animal cafes in the area. We walked in to several shops to look around. We certainly will drop by again to check out those again.
Keiko-san then guided us through and walked us to the gate of the Meiji-jinggu Shrine. She was very accommodating with our questions about the religion, culture and history of the shrine. It was a certainly calming and refreshing walk as we strolled through the peaceful walkway leading towards Meiji-jinggu Shrine. It certainly is a must-go experience!
Last but not least, Keiko-san brought us to the Tokyo Camii & Turkish Cultural Centre in Yoyogi-Uehara. It is such a magnificent structure built within the urban walls of the area. We took our break and salat there before parting ways.
Myself and my wife enjoyed Keiko-san's warm company and conversation. She is certainly part of the highlight of the tour as well. She was very enthusiastic on sharing her experience and knowledge about Tokyo and its history. Certainly, the tour was an unforgettable memory for myself and my wife.
Thank you Keiko-san and Omakase!
