We had a great day exploring Tokyo with Yoko. She was extremely accommodating before, during and after the tour, even making suggestions for what we might do/see on our own aside from what we did on our tour. Her very friendly and polite nature and desire to help made our tour excellent. She was also flexible and did everything she could to make our day in Tokyo a fun one! It's great sightseeing with a local and learning more about their culture. Thanks so much Yoko!

Yoko:
Dear Danielle, Thank you very much for taking your time to post a great review. Both of you and your husband are very nice so I enjoyed the day with you indeed. Thanks to you I learned about your country that I’ve never been. The photos you kindly showed me were really beautiful and I appreciate it so much. Someday I’d like to visit your country. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed exploring Tokyo. I hope in the near future you will come to Japan. I’m looking forward to seeing you again! Kind regards, Yoko

“ Two Tours with Yoko ”

My husband and I were only in Tokyo, Japan for about a week, so I decided to hire Yoko as our tour guide for 2 of the 7 days we were there. My husband was skeptical at first and felt we could navigate our points of interest on our own. Either way, I booked the “One day Tokyo” and “One day trip to Kamakura” tours and we thoroughly enjoyed both. With both tours we had the opportunity to see many shrines and temples (including Meiji Shrine, Sensoji Temple, Hokoku-ji temple and others) of which Yoko was very knowledgeable and able to share key historical information. Being able to drink Matcha tea with Japanese sweets while overlooking a bamboo garden at Hokoku-ji was the highlight of our trip to Kamakura (seeing the Great Buddha was awesome too). She even directed us to Kiddy Land in Tokyo where I had the chance to shop for Hello Kitty and Sailor Moon souvenirs! She recommended two great restaurants for our lunch breaks during each tour. When the first restaurant option during tour #1 ended up having a long line, she offered an alternative which was off the beaten path yet perfect for what my husband was hoping for (less mainstream and more what locals would experience). My only negative was the bus ride we had to take between destination in Kamakura, as they were quite cramped and rocky which triggered my motion sickness. This was in no way Yoko’s fault, obviously, and I was able to recover quickly once off the bus. In all, I was grateful for the instructions on how to get around using the Metro/JR lines, information regarding other points of interest not on the tour and her overall positive and friendly demeanor. She speaks English very well and we had no major communication barriers during our time together. It was like a friend was showing us around Tokyo and not a stuffy tour guide. My husband even admitted I was right (of course) to book the tours with Yoko and that he could not have imagined exploring Tokyo and Kamakura without her. We were genuinely sad to have to part from her after our second tour. If you are like me and like to stroll and browse in one location without feeling a time crunch, I would recommend scheduling just 2 or three destination during the One day in Tokyo tour. My husband is not such a person so bouncing to 4 different locations was fine for him. Sorry for such a long review :)

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your warm and thoughtful review, Shavonne. It's very nice meeting both of you. You are such nice people, so sharing the time with you was so enjoyable and memorable for me. I was sorry for the bus ride at Kamakura - Hokoku-ji temple is a very popular place for tourists, so almost always the bus for the temple is packed with many people. However I'm glad to hear that the time in Hokoku-ji temple seemed to be a good memory for you. I enjoyed both tours in Tokyo and Kamakura with you. To tell the truth, I didn't want to say goodbye after the second trip and after that I miss both of you. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. As you know, there are many attractive tourist destinations in Japan. I hope I can see both of you again in the near future. Thank you again and please take care of yourselves. Yoko

“ Personalised tour of Tokyo ”

We had a fantastic day with Yoko. As well as taking us to all the sites we wanted to see Yoko explained the history and customs of each place She taught us how the underground trains worked so we could get around ourselves and recommended places to go We had a delicious Japanese lunch which was enjoyed by all. Yoko was an excellent guide.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, Lynette. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. It's my pleasure to help you exploring Tokyo. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed "Shabu-shabu" lunch which is popular Japanese dishes especially in winter. It was really a lovely day for me with all of your family. I hope you will enjoy your stay in Hokkaido. Hope to see you again in the near future. Happy holidays! Yoko

“ Yoko is an excellent guide ”

We only had one day to tour Tokyo and Yoko was a perfect choice. She expertly guided us through all the sights we wanted to see. We took public transportation and throughout the day never felt rushed. She picked the best place for lunch. Prior to the tour Yoko answered all of our inquiries promptly. Yoko went out of her way to make our day enjoyable. I recommend Yoko highly for your Tokyo tour.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your great review, Michael and Steve! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. Both of you are nice so I had a memorable day indeed. I really appreciate your cooperation about exploring Tokyo by trains, subways, and of course walking. Actually it was fun for me to see the increased steps on your counters at each site! I hope you'll come to Japan and would like to see you again in the near future. Please enjoy your vacation on Thailand and Vietnam! Yoko
