“ Wonderful (and wet!) Intro to Tokyo ”

Makiko was a wonderful guide for Tokyo for our family of five. Despite torrential rain, we managed to take in the Meiji Shrine and Makiko explained the Shinto rituals. We also had a great lunch at a conveyor sushi restaurant and she found a super fun animal cafe for our kids to enjoy. It was the wettest tour ever and our children were jet-lagged, but Makiko remained pleasant and professional at every turn. She even wrote a very helpful allergy card for our oldest daughter to use on our trip. Thank you, Makiko!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed a day with me even it was raining so heavily. We were all wet! Hope you had a good time for the rest of your stay in Japan. Such a nice family! I had a lovely time with all of you. Hope to meet you again! My warm regards to everyone in your family. Makiko

“ Excellent Tour of Kamakura from Tokyo ”

My husband and I really enjoyed our day exploring Kamakura with Makiko. Makiko spoke perfect English, and was very knowledgeable about of the sites that we visited. She navigated efficiently from site to site in Kamakura, always choosing the best mode of transportation. I wasn't feeling well the day of our tour, and Makiko went out of her way to accommodate me. Makiko also has a flower arrangement business, and we enjoyed hearing her perspective on the flowers we saw. Makiko was so pleasant to be around, and we highly recommend booking her for Kamakura! I am sure she would be excellent as a Tokyo guide as well.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for such a wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour to Kamakura. I had lovely time with you and your husband. Such a nice couple! We talked a lot about lots of things! Hope you enjoyed the rest of time in Japan. Looking forward to meeting you again! Please come back in different season and enjoy flowers and nature. My warm regards to Will. Makiko

“ Awesome visit with great guide ”

My wife and I had the good fortune to have selected Makiko as our guide in Tokyo for four days. She was very attentive to our needs and was pleasant to be with. She escorted us around Tokyo in an efficient and time effective manner. We usually used public transportation which was efficient and fast. Tokyo’s subway and train system is amazing. Makiko is well versed in the history, culture and religion of Japan. Her command of English is excellent. We highly recommend Makiko.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review! Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. It was a pleasure to be your guide for 3 days. Such a lovely time for me to spend with both of you. Hope to see you again. My warm regards to Sandy. Makiko

Makiko is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the wonderful city . Her English is perfect . She is also thoroughly in taking us thru the maze of the subway system.
