We did the "Backstreets of Tokyo" night tour. Lilly has done a lot of research, and is a great storyteller. While not "terrifying," it was terribly interesting. Walking through the warren of back streets in and of itself was interesting, but we never would have found some of the haunts she took us too. I wish I'd booked a day... More

Despite blazing heat the three hour leisurely and informative walk was a bloody delight from start to finish. Our guide was sweet & her passion was evident & infectious, involving all members (6 of us) in the conversation and tour. There was nothing too strenuous and we had a pit stop for hydration & clean toilets. Watching the 47 ronin... More

We did the "Blood of Samurai" tour and it was the highlight of our stay in Tokyo. I really enjoyed our guide's stories about culture, beliefs and history of Japan and the areas we visited. I have been telling them to my friends at home, too. I will definitely go again if I have a chance to visit Tokyo again.

I love ghost tours! Everywhere I go I make it a point to join at least one ghost tour. They are a great way to learn about the culture and history of an area. This tour was fabulous! We ended up being the only ones on the tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We... More

This was my second Haunted Tokyo over the years. Lilly is very knowledgable about here subject matter and her tours show a side to Tokyo rarely encountered by tourists. While the tour does focus on the story of the 47 Ronin, it does cover other famous and infamous places of old Edo. There is a fair amount of walking involved... More

We booked a tour for two and ended up being the only ones in a rainy and windy day. Not the ideal setting, but even in these circumstances Lilly, the tour guide, gave us a well organized and interesting tour. The storm actually ended up adding to the atmosphere:) The specific one we were on was the "Blood of the... More

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
