Takako is an excellent guide who went out of her way to make my day with her productive and enjoyable. She has a spectacular knowledge of Tokyo, and was able to incorporate all of the activities and places that I wanted to see, in one day. She introduced me to things that I would have ordinarily glossed over. For instance, we went to the Meji Shrine, which most tourists visit. However, while there, she gave me the opportunity to have my fortune told by the "shrine maidens" --not something that I would ever have thought to have done there. We also went to the Sensoji Temple, where again, she explained parts of the Temple, including the paintings leading up to the main part of the Temple, that I never would have noticed. We also went sake tasting and kimono shopping, as Takako is an expert in kimonos, and she knew that those were two of my interests. We had wonderful "conveyor belt" sushi, which she knew I wanted to try. She knew her way around Tokyo's complex subway system, and took me to the beach front, which I didn't even know existed. Besides being a wonderful and knowledgeable guide, Takako is a pleasure to spend the day with, and has a wonderful disposition and unflagging energy. She kept going long after I had worn down. In short, I would wholeheartedly recommend her.

Takako:
Hello Lynda! I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed that day in Tokyo. It was my great pleasure to have introduced the attractive things and places of Japan to you, especially kimonos and sake " Japanese rice wine" which are two my big concerns. I was very happy to be with you and talk a lot . See you again someday ! Best regards

“ Power sightseeing at a Zen pace ”

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:
Thank you for the wonderful three days together with you. We walked a lot and marked the biggest numbers of the steps, didn't we. I like to coordinate the tours、where I should take my guests , how to go there in the limited hours and how to show the sightseeing places. Your energetic walks trained through the daly Yoga practice enabled to cover the many places and go there on time. The Bay Area is my favorite place in Tokyo, where will be more developed for the summer olimpics in 2020. I would like to see you again then. Your tour was once in my lifetime experience to me. I keep my fingers crossed for your safe flight to your home and for yor happyness . Best wishes Takako

“ Very impressed ”

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:
Dear Janette & Roger I do appreciate your inquiring to me. I enjoyed the tour with your mother. She was very energetic and tough beyond my imagination. We talked a lot of the hobbies , life and so on. She would be my ideal model in my future. Thanks & See you again Takako

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 lovely day exploring Tokyo with the charming 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

Takako:
Dear Rae-san Thank you very much for your review telling that you enjoyed the tour in Tokyo. It is a great pleasure to make a plan in accordance with the requests and introduce the intresting places in the attractive ways. The sake-tasting with a wonderful lacquer ware cup was a special treat served from the shop for the nice guests. Anyway I would like to express to you my deep gratitude for your visit to Japan and inquiry to my tour. Thanks. See you again Takako Takata.

TakaKo was very knowledgeable and showed us many things that we would not have seen otherwise. We enjoyed our time spent with her and appreciated her giving us a glimpse of Japanese life. Lunch with her was like having lunch with family. Thank you so much TakaKo!

Takako:
Hello! How have you been ? Thank you for your joining to my tour. I was worried about your tour because of the typhoon , or cyclone. However I was glad to meet you and guide even one day. I am very glad to hear that you could enjoy my tour and It is a great pleasure that I could introduce the attractive city , Tokyo and have the lunch together with you. Now Japan is still in the season of typhoon . Best regards Takako
