“ Great visit to Hakone ”

Ai was great. She was easy going and flexible with our group of adults and children (70+ years old and 3-10 year olds). She kept things fun, light and interesting and had things planned out very well so we really made the most of the 1 day we had touring Hakone and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend Ai as a tour guide!


Dear Abby, Thank you for your super-high grading! I’m very happy and relieved to know you liked my Hakone Tour. (Actually I was worrying if it did not satisfy your expectation, for you're from a beautiful State of the US and had visited many gorgeous places around the world.) Please tell my best regards to all of your wonderful family! Hoping to see you some day again, Ai.

“ A Wonerful Day in Tokyo ”

Ai is an excellent guide. She have top notch communication skills and will personalize your tour experience to match your interests. Ai is very professional and reliable. Should you choose her as your guide, you will not be disappointed. On our tour, she met us at the appointed time at our hotel and escorted us to various unique (e.g. plastic food making experience} and interesting sights in Tokyo. It was a wonderful day that we will always remember.


Hello Jerry, Thank you so much for your topmost evaluation to my guiding. The joyful series of events we shared during our trip still make me smile, with your immortal art work "Very Berry Waffle" on my desk. Hoping we could meet someday agin. Best regards, Ai
