“ Great intro to Tokyo tour! ”

Junko was great leading our family (2 adults and 2 kids) on a half-day Tokyo tour. She was attentive to our needs and understood that having kids meant being flexible and responsive.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a nice review, Sanjay!. I am very glad to have helped you know Tokyo. I hope you and your family will make great memories in Japan. Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ Yanaka, Nezu shrine ”

Junko was an excellent guide. She provided a lot of backup historical information, which was very helpful. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a great review, Eva. I am very glad to have helped you know Nezu and Yanaka and the history. There still remain beautiful traditional gardens and quiet places even in Tokyo. I hope you would come to Japan again in the cherry blossom season. Thank you again and take care! Junko

“ Very understanding and caring guide ”

From initial emails to hugs goodbye, we enjoyed our time with Junko. She was accommodating in our itinerary choices and flexible through tour time. My wife is diabetic and Junko was understanding of her need for breaks and meals. We wished to experience the off the beaten path food places and our first night we enjoyed two for beer, sake and food. She’s very passionate about her city and it showed. You will be educated, enlightened and inspired by her.....thank you Junko! Rory and Sandra

Junko:

Thank you for such a wonderful review, Rory and Sandra! I am very happy to have helped you have a good time in Tokyo. It was nice to have exchanged information about our families including our dogs Diego and Coco. They are rescued dogs. What a coincidence.!! I hope you will make great memories in Japan. Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ 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
