“ Details and timeliness ”

Tomoko communicated with us before we arrived and as soon as we arrived in Japan. She created a detailed itinerary based on our interests. Everyday she gave us a recap of what, where and when we did that day, plus a plethora of pictures she had taken of us. It would have been very difficult to navigate the train schedules and stations as newcomers. We feel that we saw twice as much with the help of Tomoko, than if we had gone alone. Tomoko brought us to some awesome local restaurants where we were the only tourists. The food was excellent and the owners very welcoming. Tomoko is a wealth of knowledge and has years of experience as a guide and teacher. We wanted to visit areas that were not normal tourist stops, so she walked with us through back roads and educated us on the Japanese culture and lifestyle. My 14 year old daughter loved Tomoko and they got along wonderfully. If you want an easy going, well informed, detail oriented and charming guide, then Tomoko is a match.

Tomoko:

Thank you for your great review, Mark. I really enjoyed guiding you and your daughter. As you both are interested in history and great walkers, we covered more than usual such as Sugimotodera temple, the oldest one in Kamakura. Your inquiries on not just about history but current issues inspired me a lot. Next time you come to Japan, I will definitely take you to the Tempra restaurant again for dinner ? My best regards to you, your adorable girl, Ella, and all your family. Thank you again!
