“ We would have been lost without Hiroko! ”

Our family booked our first trip to Tokyo and we would have been totally lost without Hiroko! We fell in love with a very warm and friendly person, Hiroko! She is amazing! We cannot thank her enough for introducing us to Tokyo.

Hiroko:

Thanks for the awesome review, Tanya ! I was really impressed how hard you prepared to make your family trip perfect. If my small effort helped you a bit, that would be my great pleasure! I was so lucky to have met you and your beautiful family at the very end of 2018!

“ A truly customised tour ”

Good correspondence leading up to the actual tour resulted in Hiroko organising a fully customised itinerary for me. My preferences (e.g. steady pace, like photographing details), likes (e.g. local food, meeting locals) and other interests (e.g. Sake brewery, railways, culture & history) were all fully considered to add to the main reason I wanted to visit Nikko - the Toshogu shrine. The surprise highlight was a home cooked meal by a local Nikko resident. There was good conversation, she was pleasant and attentive throughout

Hiroko:

Thank you very much for your kind words, Christina. And all your advices you gave me I’ll never forget ! Yes I’ll keep my specialty on food and try my best to learn history and culture much better to make my guest/friend comfortable ;) I’m looking forward to meeting you again soon! Hiroko

Hiroko , is very personable, nice,and thoughtful. She goes out of her way to make the experience amazing. From the little Japanese snacks she brought for me to her knowledge of the area. You can't go wrong with using Hiroko

Hiroko:

Thank you very much for your kind words, Brian. You are the one who made our trip fun and amazing! I really appreciate your kindness, curiosity and patience;) I’m looking forward to seeing you soon! Hiroko
