A Dutch medical professor’s visit to Tokyo

I used to work as a medical secretary to a famous child neurological pediatrician but unfortunately he passed away three years ago.  One of his friends, a Dutch medical professor visited in Japan to give his lectures about Rett syndrome (a rare, severe neurological disorder for girls) last week.  Since he has extra time, I guided him to Hamarikyu, Omotesasndo and Harajyuku. 

A Dutch medical professor’s visit to Tokyo

One of the most impressed things he experienced was Architectural Design Concept of Omotesando: The first was to use the underground space, placing half the building below ground, resulting in a structure no taller than the zelkova trees lining the avenue. The second idea was to incorporate the gentle slope of Omotesando with the building’ public spaces.

I signed up with Mari for a day and a half tour of Tokyo because my time was limited. She was a wonderful tour guide and we got along really well. On our full day tour, from the first point of contact, she was full of ideas; so much so that I wished I had more time in Tokyo. We started our day with the Meiji Shrine. We sat at a café near the entrance as she explained the difference between Waka an...

Mari is a very caring and patient guide who makes sure everyone is enjoying. On the night we arrived in Tokyo, she was sweet enough to leave a hand written note at our hotel welcoming us. On the day of our trip, she was on time and made the tour very interesting for my children. It is quite hard to capture the attention of 4 kids 10 to 15 years old! I was surprised the kids opened up to her an...

The sumo practice & the Edo museum tour with Mari was well organized, communicated, and executed. Mari & I had a few exchanges, and as we did not want to follow the advertised plan of Sumo practice and the fish market - Mari was flexible and accepted our requests. She provided useful information on the way to the sumo practice and was very helpful at the Edo museum, where English signs were s...
