“ PERFECT guide in Tokyo!!! ”

Ms. Shizuko was a most perfect guide, and we couldn't have asked for more!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her, and was able to see and experience so much more than if we did it on our own! Communication with Shizuko was so easy, and she truly took the time and effort to plan a day that was custom to our interests and needs, but still flexible on the day of our tour. Above and beyond that, she even investigated, recommended and provided information regarding other places that we planned to visit on our own, to make our stay in Japan as easy and enjoyable for us as possible. She came with a friendly smile that lasted all day, and she came so well-prepared (with a bag full of everything you might need). She was one of our favorite parts of our visit to Tokyo, and my family has so m... read more

Shizuko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review for me, Therese. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the plan I prepared in Tokyo for you. I could prepare them, because you told me about your request and talked each other well in advance. I myself enjoyed and had a fun with you and your family with talking about many things. Whenever I look my Pokemon-stick, I remember your charming children. (^ ^) I hope you will come back to Japan someday in the future. Thank you again and give my best regards to your husband and children. Shizuko

“ One day tour of Tokyo ”

I had a wonderful tour of Tokyo with Shizuko. She did a great job of communicating with me before the trip to plan our itinerary. She was also flexible during the day when I wanted to see something that wasn’t on the original plan. She was very knowledgeable about the history and background for each of the sites we visited which helped me learn more about the city and culture. She also brought several maps for me and helped to explain the best routes on public transportation to visit additional sites since I would be sightseeing alone the next day. She met me at the hotel lobby on time and brought me back at the end of the tour. This tour is a great way to see the city when you don’t have a lot of time. I would definitely recommend Shizuko as a tour guide.

Shizuko:

Dear Liz, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I’m very glad to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. And I really appreciate you chose me as your guide in Tokyo during your busy business trip. I was relieved we could find the Kit-Kat Wasabi-taste for you sons at last. I hope you will continue a nice business trip and enjoy the rest of your days. Thank you again. Shizuko

“ Delightful day in Tokyo ”

Our party of six had a single day in Tokyo prior to a cruise. Shizuko did an exceptional job of planning a full, fun day giving us an overview of the city for us first time visitors. Her organization and attention to detail was impressive and appreciated, as was her flexibility when we made requests. Shizuko knows her stuff and was happy sharing it with our group. An added bonus: she took pictures along the way, and emailed them to us that same night. Lovely memories of a lovely day. Thank you Shizuko.

Shizuko:

Dear Mary, thank you very much for your warm review, Mary. I really appreciate it. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the tour with me. Because it was rainy in the morning and the schedule was a little tight. I myself enjoyed walking with you and your wonderful members. It was nice meeting you all. I hope you will enjoy a wonderful cruising trip to Singapore and come back to Japan someday in the future. Thank you again and give my best regards to your members. Shizuko

“ Amazing Guide ”

Thank you Shizuko, the tour completely exceeded my expectations, 7hrs was not enough, but we got such a fabulous overview of the people, culture & of course the wonderful street food. Love Tokyo a big thank you to Shizuoka for such a fab day.

Shizuko:

Dear Antony and Jane, Thank you so much for having me as your guide, and sending me a wonderful review. I’m so glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour and enjoyed eating takoyaki, curry-bread etc. at the street stalls. I myself enjoyed the tour very much with you. We were so lucky that we could see many people disguised in Halloween costumes. And I’m sure that you enjoy the Halloween party on the ship. It was very nice meeting you and I hope to see you again someday in the future, maybe in 2020 Tokyo Olympic Game. Thank you again. Please enjoy the rest of your trip. Shizuko
