Takako was a wonderful tour guide of the main areas of Tokyo for my extended family visiting Japan for the first time. She took input from us before the tour, tailored it and gave helpful information along the way. She was delightful to spend the afternoon with and not only showed us the sights but helped prepare us to navigate the big city.
Our group of 14 people had a wonderful time with Takako. Even with a big group Takako managed it very well in the subway with lots of crowds. The lunch which Takako had reserved in advance was super delicious, we had a private japanese style room which made an unique experience too! Thank you Takako and hope to see you again if we'll be in Tokyo Natalie
I enjoyed the pleasure of Takako Takata’ guidance for three days in Tokyo. We put in nearly 90,000 steps and visited at least a dozen major sights. The first two days we explored the primary tourist sights of the city…Tsukiji Fish Market, where I was able to sample fruits and seafood I’ve never even heard of before; Kabukiza theatre where we saw an authentic kabuki performance; then on to Ginza and Asakusa to marvel at the Sensoji shrine. Day two we saw more spectacular sights. All the while Takaka kept a gentle pace and always taking time to answer questions and explain the history, the architecture or to simply point out unique features of each location so that I could fully appreciate the magnitude. Day three we took a train out to explore Tokyo’s beautiful bay area. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience and a fantastic way to immerse myself in the beauty of Tokyo. I highly recommend Takako Takata as a guide!
Takako was fabulous. Excellent email communication. She took my elderly mother on a wonderful day tour of Tokyo and then arranged her transfer to Narita Airport at the end of the day. Really appreciated the photos she sent me of their day together.
Takako went above and beyond her role to show us Tokyo. She was very flexible and accommodated us such that we could see all that we wanted. She did not rush us at all. All in all a very pleasant and informative tour. She is so sweet that she even bought a birthday present for my daughter. Thank you, Takako!!
A great tour with the charming Takako. We covered a lot of locations and learnt so much about the sights and life in Tokyo. Takako was a wonderful guide and her knowledge and insight gave us so much more than a large guided tour or a head down in a guidebook experience. We got to experience tasting at the fish market, and the stores around Tokyo. And lots of special one-off moments such as tasting sake from Japanese lacquer bowls. I thoroughly enjoyed our day in Tokyo with Takako and would highly recommend her. Takako-san - thank you very much
