“ You won't regret booking with Yoko ”

When I decided to participate in a Japanese-only sample-making workshop in Kappabashi, I decided to look for a translator who might be able to act as a guide as well! In my search, I ran across Yoko's profile and messaged her with my plans. She was enthusiastic and ready to accept the task, and she quickly got to work arranging the reservation with the sample shop and building an itinerary to tour Asakusa and Sensoji temple as well. Even a typhoon couldn't stop our plans, and Yoko was very flexible in postponing our tour. She even helped by splitting up our days so I could take the workshop later when the sample shop remained closed on the day of our Asakusa tour. I had a wonderful time learning about Japanese culture and practicing the language as she drilled me on various sign kanji and readings around town--thank you Yoko for being such a wonderful host for my first trip to Japan!

Yoko:

Thank you so much for writing an excellent review, Chris!! It was so much fun exploring Asakusa having Kagetsudo "Melon Pan" and Kibidango etc. It was too bad that the typhoon forced to change the schedule, but I felt lucky you could change your schedule and have the Sample Making Experience Workshop at the second leg of your trip. 想像以上に日本語を知っていて、ビックリしました。I will be looking forward to seeing you again and going to Nikko the next time soon. 日本語の勉強頑張ってください。次回また色々お話しできるのを楽しみにしてます。
