“ Wonderful day in Hakone area ”

Kuniko provided my adult son and full support for a superb day trip to Hakone from Tokyo. She met is at our hotel, got us to the train station, supervised purchasing the special Hakone day pass and train tickets. She got us to all the sites in the area we wanted to see on the many confusing types of transport, and she got us home on time. We thoroughly. Enjoyed her company and recommend using her in the Kanto area.

“ Friendly, helpful, went above and beyond. ”

This wasn't a typical tour, as Kuniko accompanied me to visit 2 different artisans and interpreted for me. She went above and beyond to record the conversation as well, wrote it down, and sent it via email! Wow. I am very happy with my experience with Kuniko - thank you!

“ Tokyo and Kamakura highlights ”

We booked Kuniko for two days, one to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo and another day to see Kamakura. We traveled with our one year old daughter, and Kuniko was so kind and patient with her and us as we walked long days to cover all the sights. Because of her knowledge of the public transportation we were able to see so many places. She was such a kind lady with knowledge to give us insight of all the places we visited. Would use her again if we visit Tokyo in future. Thank you Kuniko!
