We were coming to Japan as a 3 generation family with ages 6-76. We were initially skeptical about any tour guides thinking we could manage on our own with HYPERDIA and google maps. Wow we were all surprised at how easy it was to maneuver with a guide the first day. We booked two half days and asked all the questions we could so we could figure out what we wanted and how to move forward. Yokik...

Yukiko was a fantastic tour guide. She created an itinerary that showed us highlights of Tokyo in a day. The tour was fun, historical and varied. Saw temples and shrines, learned about Japanese history and culture. Rode the train and rode the boat. Yukiko was prompt and very nice. I highly recommend her as a tour guide to anyone who visits Tokyo.

Having never been to Japan before and not speaking a word of Japanese we were a bit nervous about our trip. This tour was a great introduction to Japan and really helped us feel a lot more at ease. Yukiko was a fabulous guide both informative and very friendly. We did half day tour with visits to the tsujiki fish market, hamarikyu gardens and finished up with a boat taxi up to the asakusa area. ...

We visited the Imperial Palace and Asakusa. Highlights were the Ninja experience and the Sushi lessons. Asimo was also a hit with Seb. She picked the perfect day to visit Hakone and we were able to enjoy the splen...

Yukiko was very well organised and interesting. She has a great knowledge of Japan and the history of areas and their development was facinating. We come from a country with a breif non indigenous history so it was good to be able to hear about thousands of years of culture and history. We were able to do everything we had hoped for and more. Thank you.

I booked an all day, English guided walking tour with Yukiko through Triplelights. I must say the experience from the booking, to the scheduling, and communication was fantastic. Yukiko and I communicated through the Triplelights website up until a few days before the tour to ensure our tour was planned perfectly. On the tour day, Yukiko met my sister and I promptly at our hotel lobby. The to...

Yukiko made excellent suggestions for places for us to visit with our 2 boys (age 13 and 7). We visited Tsukiji market, Honda Welcome centre, Samaurai Museum, Ninja Trick House and the shops of Tokyo Station. She was very helpful in showing us how to navigate Tokyo using the train system and made us feel very welcome. On our return visit we would definitely use her services again and would re...
