We had a great outing with Atsuko! I emailed her ahead of time about our sightseeing plans and interests, and she designed a custom tour for us that included a Sumida river cruise, Ueno Park, and lunch. She even found some cherry blossoms for us! My kids were excited to have a tour that was centered around their interests in Tokyo. I would definitely recommend Atsuko!
