I told Ai that we- ( myself, my husband and our two 20 something sons) were looking to buy higher end Japanese clothing. The boys were also interested in some vintage clothing. We are from San Francisco area and weren’t interested in Gucci etc.. since we have those brands here. We booked 6 hours to shop and have lunch. She took us to Parco in the Shabuya area. I think I have that right. We loved it! Amazing! Just what we were looking for! There were Japanese brands, European brands and we loved the atmosphere. We had sushi at a very yummy restaurant. Walked the side streets and headed to the vintage area. My son found the designer he had read about who makes handmade jackets and was thrilled to buy one. The day was amazing. We went To Ginza on our own to shop the next day,but realized Ai had shown us the best places. A few days later we were back at Parco making our final purchases before heading to Kyoto. Ai was fun and patient and knows a lot about Tokyo not just about shopping. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her. She’s great!
Susannah, It was my pleasure to show you and your wonderful family around and help you with your shopping. I'm happy to hear that you really liked the places we went together! You were really amazing guests and I would love to guide you again if you are every back in Tokyo! Have a nice day & happy new year! Ai
