My family and I were visiting Japan for the first time and we reached out to Ms. Yoko to see Kamakura, in particular it's temples: Hokoku-ji, Hase-dera and Kotoku-in. We exchanged emails before the trip and so meeting her felt like we were meeting an old friend. She's very sweet and knowledgeable. We enjoyed visiting the temples with Ms. Yoko. Besides the temple, we also enjoyed perusing the shops along Komachi-dori.

Yoko:
Dear Rose, Thank you very much for taking your time go post a lovely review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed exploring Kamakura. I also enjoyed the day with you and your family. The day was relatively hot, but was really a beautiful day with cool breeze sometimes - we had nice weather for exploring Kamakura. Besides Tokyo and Kamakura, there are many attractive destinations in Japan as I told you. I hope you'll come back to Japan in the near future. I'm looking forward to seeing you and your family again in the near future. Kind regards, Yoko

“ Visiting Kamakura with Yoko ”

I loved spending the day with Yoko in Kamakura. Before meeting, she had looked up a special train/bus pass for us to use when in Kamakura. At the different temples , Yoko knew about each one. We went to a really neat tea ceremony in the bamboo gardens. I have many food allergies and Yoko , looked up restaurants that I could eat at. She took me to a traditional Japanese Buddhist monk style restaurant where they would have food that I could eat as a gluten free vegetarian eater. It was the best meal I had in Japan.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review, Meira! I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed the tour in Kamakura. I also enjoyed the fabulous day with you. I was wondering if the lunch was fine with you - I'm very glad to hear the lunch (Shojin Ryori) was satisfactory to you. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I hope you enjoyed your journey in Japan. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then. Thank you again and please take care! Yoko

“ Private Tokyo Tour ”

My family enjoyed our tour of Tokyo with Yoko. She is friendly, accomodating, flexible and efficient. Even though we had alot to see throughout the tour she never rushed and somehow just fitted everything in. She catered to our needs and adapted as we went along including last minute changes on the day itself. What I appreciate most was her openess and warmth. She was always smiling and cheerful. We felt so comfortable with her. It was like a friend bringing us around. Thank you so much Yoko!

Yoko:
Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review, Lynn! I'm very glad to hear your family enjoyed the tour. I also enjoyed the day with all of you. You are very nice and kind so that I felt as if I were your old friend! I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. Talking with you and what I found I have some similarity to you are really fabulous memories for me. I hope all of you have enjoyed your journey in Japan. Please come to Japan again in the near future and I'd love to see you then. Yoko

“ Full Day Tokyo Highlights ”

Yoko is a wonderful guide. She is very pleasant, cheerful, professional, and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the places we visited. We could not possibly have covered so many of the famous sights on our own as efficiently as Yoko guided us. She is very accommodating and we appreciate all her recommendations. Though we covered many places, we never felt rushed. Yoko took us to a famous Sushi place at Tsukiji Fish Market where we had a fabulous lunch. After the full day tour, she followed up to recommend a couple of shops near the hotel to shop for a few specific items we wanted to check out on our own. Yoko speaks excellent English and we had no problems communicating before and during the tour. We had a really fun and enjoyable day! Thank you for the memorable experience.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Meng! I'm very glad to hear that the day was fun and enjoyable for you. The day was also fun and enjoyable for me! I'm grateful for all of your kindness. All of your sweet and warm comments on the review are my pleasure and treasure. Meeting you, your family and talking to you made me more interested in your place. I'd love to go to Arizona some day and I hope you'll come to Japan again in the near future. I hope to see you again. Thank you so much for having me as your tour guide. Please take good care of yourself. Yoko

“ Great guide ”

Very friendly and sensitive guide, perfect organization of the trip from beginning to end. It was very pleasant to communicate and spend time together on the trip.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for posting such a great review, Sergey. I was so glad to show you around my hometown, Ashikaga and Ashikaga Flower Park. The famous wisteria was not in full bloom, but it was almost the best season and I was very happy to see all of you (especially your wife and daughter) were pleased to see the flower and take beautiful photos! I'm grateful for all of your kindness during the tour. I hope you enjoyed your journey in japan. Hope to see you again in the near future. Yoko

“ Half day city tour of Tokyo and Ashikaga national park ”

Yoko-san was a very good guide. She planned our tour so that we could cover the possible places with the limited time available. She even booked our train tickets in advance before our arrival. The only disappointment was that the flowers were not in full bloom at the Ashikaga flower park .

Yoko:
Thank you so much for posting a great review, Srinivasan-san. I was sorry that it was too early for the best season for the wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park. Usually around the end of April would be best season for the wisteria, but this year the wisteria started blooming later than usual, due to the unstable weather in early April. However I enjoyed the day with you and your friends. All of you are so nice and warm. Thank you so much for your cooperation. I hope you'll come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you again. Yoko
