“ Wonderful Hakone Experience ”

Ai-san was lovely and sweet. She was very accommodating since the initial planning of the tour all the way till we parted ways. Ai was very knowledgeable of all the tour sites, and also took us to local spots. I hope to work with her again.


Dear Ling, Thank you for your top grading!! It is my part to say “Thank you”. I’ve actually realized we could deeply enjoy Hakne even without Mt. Fuji…it was foggy that day….”if we have a great companion”. The time we shared talking over the healthy non-alcoholic Amazake ( sweet fermented rice drink) at a 400-year-old tea house by the old cider trail was really something I’ll never forget. May you both have a brilliant future together. Ai

“ Awesome Tokyo toir ”

Ai is not just a great tour guide but also a lovely and caring person. She went out of her way to accommodate and help us with innovative ideas for our Tokyo tour as per our needs and requirements. Will definitely recommend her anytime and will be calling on her on our next trip to Japan next year. She is really the best! Thank you Ai.


Hello I, S, A and A, I can’t find a word to express how I thank you for your extra-super comments. I also enjoyed myself with your beautiful family. Yes, be sure to meet again next year in Japan. Enjoy the rest of your days and have a safe trip back to U.S. Ai

“ Good memories ”

I appreciate the kindness to pick me up although hotel is a little far from downtown. I enjoyed conversation with Ai, she is an intelligent and friendly woman, she shared history of Yokohama and I enjoyed conversation walking around the beautiful seaside. Actually, purpose of this guide trip was learning something new as I wanted to hear real story and I think this trip was worth for it. Thank you for sharing and making good memories.


Dear Youngsun Thank you for your good rating. It was nice talking with a young lady like you from Korea, which reminded me of my good old days with my Korean friend; chatting, laughing, sharing long evening with talking and studying. Sorry it took too long before we finally found a best evening view around the Minato-mirai area. Hoping you’ll have a brilliant future ahead of you. Best regards, Ai.

“ Tokyo April 2019 ”

Ai was absolutely wonderful. Very organized and easy to communicate with prior to the tour. She took us all over Tokyo to see everything that we had requested to see and do. We had such a great time and would definitely use her services again. Thank you so much!!


Dear Kate, Thank you for your five-star rating !! It was wonderful two days I still recall when I close my eyes ー your lovely niece jumping under the full-bloom cherry blossoms, quietness at the precincts of Meiji Shrine we shared after a long walk ー actually, though, I’m worrying if you’re too exhausted to retrieve your energy because of our too much walk. Hoping I could meet your beautiful family again someday, somewhere. Best regards, Ai.

“ Awesome day in Hakone ”

We had a great day to see Fuji and enjoyed Hakone sightseeing. Ai planned an excellent day for the 3 of us finishing up with a wonderful Yakatori lunch.


Hi Ralph, Thank you for your topmost rating! I really thank you for letting me have a wonderful time with you again in Hakone. Actually I never had a better view of Mt. Fuji than this time. Oh yes, Yakitori at the end of our trip was as good as Mt. Fuji. Best regards, Ai
