We spent a very busy, but enjoyable day with Hiroki. Before the day of our tour I corresponded with Hiroki and requested he focus on cultural highlights. Hiroki planned a full day and showed us many different areas of Tokyo. We traveled using the Tokyo's extensive subway system and he provided excellent commentary as we toured many different sites. Per our prior discussions Hiroki scheduled a special tea ceremony for us (at additional cost) which was a real highlight! He also did not miss a beat when we made a special request for lunch during the tour. It was a long day (my phone said more than 20,000 steps!), but most enjoyable. I highly recommend Hiroki as your Tokyo tour guide.
Dear Mark, Thank you very much for taking my tour and giving me such a wonderful review !! During the tour I really had a great time with you and your wonderful family, too !! Also, your son’s knowledge and sincere attitude towards Japanese language and culture really impressed me !! Honestly,it’s a bit difficult to squeeze in a tea ceremony satisfying you including your son on a day trip touring Tokyo’s highlights, but I’m so glad you fully enjoyed it !! It’s a simplified half an hour tea ceremony but, the special one performed in the authentic tea-ceremony room using antique tea bowls in the antique ceramic shop with a history of over 100 years seemed to give you full satisfaction. Thank you again, and please give my best regards to your family !! Sincerely, Hiroki
