“ Nikko day trip from Tokyo- fantastic ”

Makiko met us at the train station in Tokyo. Her English was excellent and easy to understand. Before our trip she communicated with us months and weeks in advance to clarify and coordinate the trip and to help tailor it to our wishes. When we met her, she was very warm and welcoming. She kept us on schedule, planning for purchasing return tickets in advance (lucky for us as trains were sold out and people were even trying to buy our tickets)! Makiko guided us from location to location with fun and charm, and made our visit and experience all the more magical. We 100 percent recommend a day trip to Nikko and 500 percent recommend Makiko as your guide!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review! It was a great pleasure to be your guide. Such a lovely time to spend with both of you. Thank you for showing beautiful pictures. They were very special! We were lucky for everything on the day. I was happy to show you beautiful autumn leaves in Nikko. I appreciated your respect to our culture. Both of you are very positive for everything, it made me so happy. Hope to see you sometime again. Have a nice and relax time for the rest of your holiday. My warmest regards to Carlos.

“ Well planned ”

Makiko did a great job accommodating our requests for a more non traditional tour. She took us to a local restaurant for lunch and made sure to understand what we wanted to do. She included local cooking stores, sake tasting, zoo cafes, and of course a few traditional sites and gardens. She showed our daughter popular teen shopping stores as well as helping our son sample Japanese snacks. We would highly recommend Makiko. She will make the tour unique for everyone.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review! It was a pleasure to be your guide on your first day in Tokyo. I enjoyed spending time with you and your family. Have a wonderful time for the rest of your stay in Japan. Hope to see you sometime again, maybe in Seattle? My warmest regards to Jeff, Ryan and Hannah. Makiko

“ Meet & transfer w/Makiko ”

Makiko met my clients on their shinkansen platform at Shin-Yokohama and escorted them to their Kodama back to Odawara. With a big sigh of relief due to Makiko's professionalism and cheerful personality, my important guests were able to make this sudden change in transportation logistics with a few minutes to spare!

Makiko:

Thank you for a great review! Glad to hear I could help you. Hope they had a nice time in Hakone. Please contact me if you need my service again in future. Makiko
