My wife and I are avid travellers and have taken guided tours all over the world and have found Yukiko's to be one of our favorites thus far! She was timely in all her communications, provided us with plenty of information/maps of the locations prior to our arrival in Japan, and left me assured that we would be getting an excellent tour. She came prepared (even showed up early to our meeting location) and spoke perfect English. I would highly recommend Yukiko as a guide for your travels in Japan! We felt as if we were taking a tour with a friend and not a hired guide... Thanks again for everything Yukiko!!
