Before arriving, an artist friend and & I shared with Tomoko our particular interests on this, our first trip to Tokyo. Not only did Tomoko devise a tour that answered our specific requests but her own historical and cultural knowledge -- plus a winning personality -- added more than we ever could ever have hoped for. We covered so much territory on this one outing -- from temples, shrines, a cemetery, and park to an art gallery and origami center (!) -- that we would not have discovered on our own. But above all, it was as if we were seeing it all with a new friend who knew exactly what we wanted. It could not have been more enjoyable and informative. What a winning combination.
Thank you so much to post a great review for our tour and me. I was impressed you both had researched a lot in each way and had lists of the places of your interest. It was my great pleasure to work together with you to make the day enjoyable for both of you. Some of the venues you listed were where I do not usually visit. I really appreciate your broadening my views and experiences. Not just the places, I feel I could be more adventurous when I choose my cloths. Wishing you did not ask ten different locals people trying to find out your destinations the next day 😊 Thank you and I look forward to seeing you again, Helene and Pat.
