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.
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.
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 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.
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-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 .
Let's enjoy the touring in this charming town Kamakura by bicycle! Kamakura is one of the old capital of Japan, with rich history & nature. This tour covers the scenic view points along with the beach, and some must see spots in the town, Big Buddha, Zeniarai Benten, and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. You can also enjoy the bike ride through some backstreet, where only locals know.
