Tomoko was an excellent tour guide! She was extremely knowledgable and accommodating on the tour, and before we even got to that point helped me with online research so I could narrow down what I wanted to do on my tour. She helped me see the things I wanted to and buy what I needed to take home for my hobbies. I never could have gotten my sewing supplies without her! Or the seaweed they make jello with in Japan! So obviously, she caters to a wide variety of interests and knows the area, people, shops, and sights inside and out. Last, she was very kind and made great conversation along the way - it was a great experience. I cannot recommend her enough!
