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.

“ Fantastic guide! ”

Excellent
1 week ago Traveler: Pat -   Tour Guide: Mari

Mari was amazing! She was patient and caring, with a sense of humor and wonderful flexibility. She did everything possible to meet (and exceed) our needs. Plus, she went above and beyond in so many ways: helping us get JR tickets and securing our reservations on Shinkansen, setting us up on Passmo, giving us an origami lesson, and so much more.

There is a reason why Mari has high reviews. I booked a tour with her and she was very accommodating, prompt and knowledgeable about the area. She truly made my stay in Japan a great one and I would highly recommend her to anyone else wanting to tour Japan. She even brought a cooling neck wrap because it was hot the day of our tour. She really puts her guest first and enjoys what she does and it s...

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Mari and TripleLights. The online experience with TripleLights was well-designed and helped me to choose a great tour guide. Mari contacted me immediately to discuss my interests and to design a customized one-day overview tour of Tokyo. She stayed in touch with me during the week prior to my tour and even left a personal note at my hotel...

It was clear before we got to Tokyo that Mari took her work seriously and was determined to provide us with the type of tour we desired. Mari showed great versatility on subjects and an ability to quickly adapt to changing circumstances. She is fun to be with and did a great job getting us interacting with shopkeepers. Mari quickly picked up from conversations that we needed to buy train tick...

“ Narita (NRT) Layover tour ”

Excellent
2 months ago Traveler: JOHN -   Tour Guide: Mari

Mari did a great job of putting together a private 3 hour layover tour for me. She met me at the airport and in the short time we had we visited a temple, a shrine, did some shopping, sake tasting and tried some fresh eel. I would highly recommend if you have a long layover, to look her up and get out of the airport :)

“ An amazing if short visit ”

Excellent
2 months ago Traveler: Michele -   Tour Guide: Mari

I had a 5.5 hour layover in Japan and thought it would be fun to see something of Japan that wasn't the airport. I found Mari on TripleLights and wrote her a note. She responded right away and said that 5.5 hours was plenty of time to see the small town of Narita. She was amazing! She sent me a photo of where we would meet and held a sign with my name. She had come to Narita before our meeting...

My wife and I were in Japan for our first time. We arranged a 4-hour tour with Mari for our first full day. Then had a needed day of rest (we walked A LOT, which we were happy to do) and then a second 4-hour tour. Mari made excellent itinerary suggestions and we were efficient but never rushed. Always informative, especially with architecture notes (my wife is an architect). Mari is very attentive...

We really enjoyed our time with Mari, and she is an exceptional guide. Her English is very good, and her knowledge of Japanese history and culture was amazing. Mari was in constant contact with me the entire week prior to the tour, and if I had a question she always replied very promptly. She met us in our hotel lobby which was super convenient, and then she guided us through the subway to our s...
