“ Friendly, Versatile, Knowledgeable - Great Experience! ”

From the moment we met Yukiko on September 1st, she was just a pleasure to be around and we were thrilled to have her as our guide around Tokyo. She was dressed in a beautiful kimono, and displayed the highest level of professionalism from the moment we began until the moment we said good-bye. She listened to all of our requests and escorted us to all the places we wanted to see, and was particularly adept at planning with us on short notice. Based on our suggestions/wishes she then embellished our tour with other nearby interesting places to see which enriched our experience and understanding. Yukiko was smart, calm, poised, and attentive. In just a half day, she shared a tremendous amount of historical and cultural information with us, answered all of our questions, and engaged us in entertaining conversations. Yukiko also went out of her way to help us with my wife’s Celiac disease and food allergies/intolerances. We were able to quickly go into a grocery store with her and she pointed out things that were “Gluten Free” and just as important, things that were not. She even took the time to prepare printed phrases to use in stores and restaurants. Overall, Yukiko was an exceptional guide. She enriched and enhanced our time in Japan. We highly recommend her and would seek her out again if we return. Thank you Yukiko! David and Diane
