“ Yukiko is the best!!! ”

Yukiko is the best and I'm not exaggerating! Yukiko was recommended to me by two coworkers who have used her tour guiding services in the past. First of all, Yukiko is fluent in English. Communication will not be an issue. Prior to our arrival, Yukiko corresponded with me over email & asked about our interests and what we would like to see in Tokyo. She took our interests and crafted a detailed "plan of the day." We were able to adjust as needed because she was very flexible about the schedule. Well planned but flexible; that was perfect for us! We mainly wanted someone who can give us the inside scoop about the mysterious inner-market of the Tsukiji Fish Market. Without Yukiko's guidance, we would've missed a ton and been prohibited from seeing many things. She translated what the more friendly fish mongers were explaining to us. (There were many "not so friendly" ones) Yukiko made reservations at a delicious restaurant across from the market away from the long lines & she was instrumental in communicating with our wait staff. Yukiko also help translate for me when I purchased two knives at the famed knife purveyor, Masamoto's. I had the Chinese character of my last name etched in the knives and that would not have been possible without her intervening. She also took us to Tokyo Tower and the Imperial Palace. We learned many insightful things that would not have possible had we gone on our own. She was also extremely kind to my two sons (ages 11 & 7). In fact, they missed her so much they kept asking if Yukiko could join us for another day in Tokyo. Yukiko works very hard, is diligent, and is extremely professional. We hired her for 8 hours, starting with her picking us up at our hotel lobby. Towards the end of the day, the subway had some lengthy delays & pushing up against our time limit. Yukiko never made us feel rushed. In fact, she stayed longer than the allotted 8 hours to ensure we got to our dinner destination safely and it had started to rain. I felt really bad because I knew she had to walk in the rain and had to get home to her daughter for dinner. However, she never made us feel rushed. She is truly the best! My boys were disappointed that she couldn't stay with us for dinner. Last tip: Japan is generally a whole country that doesn't expect gratuity for their services provided. However, it does not mean you can't tip Yukiko. We felt she more than earned the gratuity! Just remember to give it to her in an envelope, if possible. The Japanese custom is to not hand money to each other directly. If you are considering a tour guide for Tokyo, look no further. You will not be disappointed! I highly recommend Yukiko!

Yukiko:
Thank you so much Steve!! I can't find the word to express my gratitude toward such a great review! I'm glad to hear that you went back home safely and brought back many memorable memories with you. Did you already try to use your Japanese knives? I'm sure these will enhance your cooking skills more and will make your family happy! I missed your boys. They are so friendly and adorable! Please come back again anytime! Thank you once again to you and your coworkers. I appreciated it very much. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ A great guide ”

Yukiko-san is an outstanding guide to have with attention to details. She made our holidays a happy and memorable one.. Not only she heard and guided us, she took her own initiative to write down on a piece of paper in Japanese on some of the special request when dining. Thank you very much Yukiko.

Yukiko:
Thank you very much for your review, Steven! I really appreciated it. It was a perfect day to walk under the beautiful cherry blossom trees in full bloom. I remember the view from the window of the restaurant and had a relaxing time with you. I'm so happy to hear that it made your trip memorable and enjoyable one. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Accommodating and fun ”

Yukiko was a knowledgable guide and very accommodating. We had a family of 4 who were with us and they were strict vegetarian. Yukiko was very flexible and she offered some really nice eateries during the tour since we had extra time. She also made us a perfectly timed schedule, giving us the opportunity to see what we wanted. All members of our group really enjoyed the tour.

Yukiko:
Thank you for the great review, Rohit! We visited some Shrines and temples and had local delicious foods on that day. I really enjoyed to talk about the influence from your country, especially from the viewpoints of religion. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed to visit all the places that you wanted to see. Thank you once again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!

“ Tokyo tour ”

I asked for cherry blossoms and seafood for my wife, and history and pop culture for me. All of the stops had a lot of history that I would not have known about and it was nice to talk with Yukiko. This is much better than any group tour and costs less for a family of 4.

Yukiko:
Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu, David! I'm glad that you learned more about each place we visited. Cherry blossom tress were absolutely beautiful in the garden and saw both historical and modern part of Japan. On the way, we encountered real Mario cart and many delicious foods. I hope you will come back Tokyo again to see more!

“ A personalized touch ”

Our day with Yukiko was more than I expected and the experience was truly personalized. Yukiko went out of her way to make sure our day included sights we wanted to see not just the normal Tokyo tourist spots. We communicated several times before the tour so she was able to have a sense of our interests. Most of all she was enthusiastic and informative. She was able to explain details of all our sights and helped us to understand the history of Tokyo. Pacing was great and she took care to make sure there were lifts and escalators available. She even advised us of spots to see on our own while in Tokyo. We couldn't have had a better experience.

Yukiko:
Thank you so much for your warm review, Ellen! I had a very good time with you and enjoyed talking about what you realized and surprised in Tokyo. I'm sure that you've seen more beautiful aspects of Japan and experienced something new and different. Japan has 4 distinctive seasons, I hope you will come back any other seasons again! Domo Arigatou!!
