Yuki helped us tailor a time and interest appropriate agenda; he reconfirmed our arrangements and kept us well informed in terms of meeting logistics. On the day of our private tour he arrived early to greet us and had planned all the transportation details, which included local trains, subways, and walking. We had agreed on visiting the Tokyo National Museum, where he skillfully guided us to see the the highlights of their collection. His knowledge of Japanese art and culture was very helpful in enhancing our experience. We then visited the fish market where we had requested a sushi lunch. He took us to an untouristy place where we thoroughly enjoyed a unique and excellent culinary adventure. We then went across town to visit a garden, which while a peaceful was less exciting than the rest of the day. We moved on to the excitement of the Shibuya Crossing where he explained the history and navigated us to the optimal spots where we could experience and photograph the melee of pedestrians. This ended our itinerary and he escorted us back to our hotel. We appreciated his knowledge, willingness to answer any and all of our questions on local culture and customs, and his polite demeanour. A single cautionary note would be to advise him of any physical limitations and degree of mobility so that you can jointly tailor an appropriate agenda. Overall, we had a wonderful day and felt we had had excellent value in this adventure and the selection of our guide.
Dear Arlene, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. I am very glad that you enjoyed my tour, those are my favorite places in Tokyo. Thank you for your note. Japan is a small country, but our sights are very spacy and needed lots of walking to appreciate. Please give my best regards to your friend, too. Best regards, Yuki
