“ Great introduction to Tokyo ”

Pre planning with Junko was easy via email with suggestions for 2 x 7 hr walking and train tripping doing those things our upcoming tour would not be covering. We would never have attemoted the wide travels on the train systems on our own. We are two older ladies so Junko set the pace accordingly with enough breaks for refreshment especially as it was quite hot weather. When one of us became ill unexpectedly she showed great concern and helped get a refund on a tiucketed admisddion for us. Her english was excellent so communication both written and oral was not difficult.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a great review, June! I am very glad to have accompanied you and Yvonne in Tokyo. I will never forget the day we visited Sugamo. It's my precious memory. Thank you again and take care. Junko
