We booked this tour as a group of three travelling from Melbourne, Australia in January 2014. Our guide, Lilly, was fantastic from the start of the booking process to the end of the tour. Lilly provided us with plenty of options for the tour and ensured we were able to undertake the tour during our stay which was at an... More

We had a great time doing the Blood of Samurai walk. Our guide, Lilly, really knew her As and Bs and managed to take us to some really hidden spots. It's a great experience not only for those interested in ghostly stories, but in general Japan lore. I recommend it completely. No doubt I would do it again.

I booked this tour because I thought it would be an interesting way to learn about the history of Tokyo. I went on a night tour around Shinanomachi. Our tour guide was engaging and indeed knew quite a bit, both about Japanese ghost stories and the history of the neighbourhood. In that regard, it was a great tour and at... More

I was lucky enough to go on two tours Demon's of the Red Light District and Blood of the Samurai. Both were great and honestly the highlight of my time in Tokyo. Lilly is very knowledgable and planned the tours out very well. The time just flies by the tour is a lot of fun. I was in a fairly... More

We recently did the Blood of the Samurai tour. We have been to Tokyo on previous occasions and this was a great opportunity to find out more about places you could otherwise walk past without knowing what you were looking at. We were lucky enough to be part of a small party (total of 3 people) and so had a... More

I really loved this tour - we did the New Years Even trip with Lily - Year of the Dragon Ghost trip. Although there was quite a large group of 18 we could still hear the commentary, questions and answers provided. I loved walking through back streets and alleys to small shrines or cemeteries, to hear the associated myths and... More

I've taken two tours with Lilly now, the Halloween graveyard tour and the Blood of the Samurai tour. Both have been very informative about the histories of religion/folklore and the tragedies of Tokyo history. If you are looking for a ghost-hunting, paranormal tour then this may not meet your expectations -- the focus is much more on the history than... More

I went on the 'Backstreets of Tokyo Ghost Walk'. There were about 15 people in total which I personally thought was too much as myself and others had difficulty hearing Lily throughout the tour. I felt parts of the tour were poorly organised. As an example, we arrived at what we were told was the most significant site of the... More

It was pouring with rain throughout our tour, but we still had a great time, which is quite a recommendation. Lilly took us to some fascinating places we'd never have found for ourselves, like the toad and the Kappa shrines and Hokusai's tomb, and kept us entertained with anecdotes and snippets of info about Shintoism, myth and legend, and how...

Google maps, Google images, and Wikipedia. That's the tour in a nutshell. Maybe I took the wrong tour, or perhaps she waited until I left, but in the 2 hours and 15 minutes that I followed along there wasn't a single ghost story told in the "Ghosts and Goblins" tour. It should be renamed to "Folklore and Fairytales" really. What... More
