Tomoko was a fantastic guide and we highly recommend her! Her depth and breadth of knowledge was remarkable and her flexibility just great. We spent 3 half days of our 4 day visit to Tokyo with Tomoko. And we visited so many interesting places including: Asakusa (temple and lively town), Tsukiji Outer Market (food tasting extraordinaire!) Kappabashi (foodie heaven of kitchen and cutlery shops), Uneo Park (history and temples), Yanaka (matcha tea ceremony - one of the highlights), Imperial Palace gardens (including impromptu taxi drive around the area with very knowledgeable driver translated by Tomoko), Fukagawa Fudodo (temple in the old town with fire ceremony). In the later afternoons and evenings we had time to explore ourselves and took in Tokyo station, Shinjuku and the Samurai museum. Tomoko was sympathetic to the health issues we had and went out of her way to set a pace and find easy access on the transport system, that made getting around enjoyable. With her sound knowledge of English and lovely sense of humour, we had many laughs and a wondeful time together. Our daughter-in-law joined us on the trip at the last minute and together they tweaked Tomoko's original itinerary for a truly memorable few days. Heartfelt thanks Tomoko and Vija. Should any of us get to Tokyo again we will be sure to reach out to you for your guiding again .
Hi Sally-Anne! Thank you very much to take your time to write such a nice review and share what we did together in details. Yes, we visited many places in three days and shared a lot of memorable moments. We laughed a lot, too! Our last visiting spot was the GIRL’s town, Harajuku, and I will not forget the sweet picture that you and Peter enjoyed sharing that crepe. So sweet😊 Say hello to Vija! Her ideas and supports were just great. My very best wishes to you all!
