Michiko is the most lovely guide. She is very knowledgeable and efficient, but gentle and easy going at the same time. We felt like we were with a Japanese friend leisurely strolling the Meiji Shrine and the cherry blossom filled Shinjuku Gyoen Park, learning many interesting things along the way. Michiko took us to Harajuku and helped us shop for a young girl's costume. She also took us to a beautiful department store to purchase our picnic lunch. We were most appreciative of Michiko's teaching us to use the subway. She is excellent and we hope to see her again as our guide on our next visit to Tokyo.
