My husband and I have the highest regard for Saori as our top-notch tour guide through the bustling city of Tokyo and, also, as our new friend. We had considerable communication with Saori before our trip as we read tour information and tried to pick our top priorities for our 3-day introduction to Japan. Fortunately we hired this lovely lady for 2 days. Saori has a 6th sense for assessing and always checking-in about the clients' interests, energy and needs. She organizes your list of to-dos in the most efficient and effective order (e.g. buying tickets for the Kabuki Theatre early in the morning and seeing Mt. Fuji at sunset from the 43rd floor of the Metropolitan offices); also, she also offers cultural stops such as a rice paper store and Harajuku District, a lively teenage hangout, that show entirely different slices-of-life than we knew existed. Her reverence for the Japanese tea ceremony introduces the visitor to more lessons in the wisdom, humility and love of beauty of this polite society. After Saori went out-of-her-way to get us to the airport, we said tearful goodbyes with promises see each other again. Thanks, Saori!
