“ Great Tokyo experience with Kuniko! ”

We had a wonderful day of exploring Tokyo in 8 hours with Kuniko. She is very patient and showed us everything we wanted, took us to a great restaurant for a tasty lunch and helped us buying the train-ticket back to the airport. With Kuniko the hole experience went very smooth and we didn't had to worry about the time, Kuniko was a very well organised guide. We hope to come back and explore more of the wonderful Japanese culture!

Kuniko:

Thank you very much for excellent review! And also thank you for spending a day with me. You and your family are so nice! Please keep enjoying your travel in Australia. I hope you come back to Japan near future and see me!

“ 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.

Kuniko:

Dear Russell, Thank you for using me as a guide for one day, and giving me such a nice review! I was happy with so nice family on the day. I hope you enjoy the rest of the days in Tokyo! Best regards, Kuniko

“ 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!

Kuniko:

Thank you very much for having me accompanying you the other days. I really admire your job, taking photos of traditional artisans. Have a nice trip and take beautiful photos!
