This was an excellent tour and I'm very happy I booked this. Yukiko was a wonderful guide - very well prepared and thoughtful. It was great to have a guide to give context to what we were seeing in the market - for example items and produce I had never seen before and would have walked by without knowing how and what they were used for. The market itself was a very unique experience. I highly recommend this tour, it was one of the highlights of our Tokyo trip.
We had a rough idea of things we wanted to see and do during our day with Yukiko; things like "do something cultural," and "see amazing architecture." Yukiko was extremely responsive and helpful, and came up with great ideas we could choose from. On our tour day, Yukiko met us at our ryokan (traditional Japanese inn). We had a full fun day. Yukiko was a delight, answering all our crazy questions and guiding us through each venue. She even had historical information and little visual aids in a notebook prepared for us! Outstanding. Yukiko has a great, fun attitude, and her attention to detail is bar none. Our day tour with her was definitely a highlight of our trip, and I would book her again without hesitation.
The experience felt like a friend with enthusiasm and very familiar with the places, is showing us around Tokyo. My family and I were not helpless wanderers because of Yukiko's help and knowledge. The conversations, care and patience will be remembered and valued.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Tsukiji with Yukiko! Thank you very much!
Our Guide Yukiko looked after my family for 2 wonderful days in Tokyo, We are from a small country town in rural Australia so we are not used to the big city. Yukiko was very well organised and she arranged to take us to places based on our general advices as to what might interest us. It made visiting Tokyo fun and educational at the same time. Yukiko told us relevant information about the place we visited and we learned much about Tokyo and its history as well as Japanese customs. We were impressed with the friendly and courteous manner in which Yukiko dealt with us and our young children who can become distracted and a bit unruly but nothing was to hard for Yukiko. We were taken to traditional Japanese restaurants for lunch and experienced things we would never have been able to arrange for ourselves. When we left on the final day it was actually very sad as Yukiko had quickly become a friend to my whole family and we will remember her for years to come . I could not say anything negative about Yukiko who is a most impressive guide and a wonderful kind and generous person. Telford Family Airlie Beach Queensland Australia
What a great day - Yukiko was really friendly, very organised and attentive during the tour. The pace was just right for myself and my 2 teens, and we had time for lots of detours for interesting shops/coffee/crepes etc! The lunch stop was particularly enjoyable and gave my kids the opportunity to try something new. Yukiko also got us used to the underground/Metro which was good experience for the rest of our stay in Tokyo. I would fully recommend one of Yukiko's tours and we'll be back one day for sure :)
We'll stroll around the most attractive spots in Tokyo: Tsukiji, Hama-rikyu Gardens, Asakusa and Ginza.
You can enjoy Japanese delicacies from Japanese sweets to high quality dining, such as sukiyaki, tempura, eel dish or sushi. You will also feel the color of Tokyo while going down the river by waterbus. You’ll be excited to see the coexistence of old and new culture in Tokyo through this tour.
