“ Afternoon visit of Chiba ”

For my second visit to Tokyo, I decided to spend one day to visit Chiba which I did not know anything about. I chose Yuko as my guide because she seemed very kind and friendly. I was not disappointed. First she helped me find the best transportation to meet her and then guided me to the places I was most interested in in Chiba area which were the Makuhari Messe and the Chiba Castle. I enjoyed my visit of those less crowded places. And it was really nice to meet her family. Yuko’s husband is so nice. We were of same generation so we had fun speaking of anime and sports of our childhood. Thank-you Yuko !

Yuko:

Hi, Sebastien! Thank you for your review!! After that day, could you enjoy Mt. Fuji? Thanks to you, we had a good experience. My husband said so, too. When you visit Japan again, please contact me. I’m willing to study about other spots for you. Thank you. Yuko

“ Akihabara tour ”

Yuko gave us a private tour at Akihabara. She showed up early and was very prepared. She had a print out schedule she showed us in the beginning of the tour. First we went to a figurin store called Radio Kaikan. For lunch, she gave us a choice of maiden cafe/gundam cafe and we went to with the maiden cafe, and it was a quite a experience and we were glad we had a good translator with us. She also took us to different malls including a artisan craft mall and a grocery that had different region's special products in one place. We will definitely ask her to be our guide again for our next trip to Japan.

Yuko:

Hi Umi!! Thank you for your review!! Thanks to you, I could enjoy this tour too, especially the Maid-cafe! You could listen to Japanese very well. And you were so kind that you could understand what I mean. You are ideal couple, and I hope that we will meet you next year again. At that time, let’s visit other interesting spots in Japan. Best regards Yuko

“ Not surprising, but surprising at the same time! ”

We had never been to Japan before and meeting Yuko at the train station was our first 'real' interaction with a Japanese National outside our hotel. I cannot express how grateful I am that I chose Yuko to be the first stop on our long tour through Japan. She showed up exactly as she said she would, took us first to an authentic Japanese confectionery shop on the way to her home - interpreting and guiding us through the options and helping us make choices while there. Then it was a quick walk through the Kemigawa area of Chiba, where I got to see first-hand how local people work and live in a town outside of Tokyo proper - it was an education! While walking we encountered her husband and two sons, which was a pleasant surprise. Upon arriving at her apartment we were guided gently through p... read more

Yuko:

Dear Robert, Thank you for your kind message!! I am glad that you could enjoy this tour. And my husband, too. That pens and caps you gave me are very useful now. You and your girlfriend were so kind, so it was special experience for me. In addition, the kimono looked good on her! And her performing with kimono was so beautiful. If you visit Japan again, I'd like to meet you again. Best, Yuko
