Junko was a wonderful guide from the start. As soon as I booked our tour, I received a confirmation email with questions about what we would like to do and see and a prospective itinerary. We asked to change one place in the itinerary and she gave us several other ideas we could do instead. We made our tour the day after we arrived so she could familiarize us with the areas and I'm so glad we did! She showed us how to use the subway/train and while it was very easy, it was so nice to have her there with us the first time. We went all over the place and while we could have done it on our own, it would have taken A LOT longer and we wouldn't have had someone providing us with the local information that really made it interesting. I loved the tour of the fish market and all the different foods. Without Junko, we wouldn't have known what we were looking at half the time. She was also wonderful in showing us what to do at the temples and the rituals, etc. There's no way we would have learned this much on our own. Junko also sent us a ton of information for the rest of the week we were there, complete with websites and insider information. She was a great source for our trip planning. She even sent us ideas the day after our tour. She really is invested in the whole process and wants you to enjoy your trip to Tokyo to the fullest! Junko was a lovely guide, very kind, nice to talk to and a good source of cultural and historical knowledge. She even gave my son a small gift at the end of the day. Highly recommend. Thank you Junko!
