“ An afternoon with Yukiko ”

What a wonderful afternoon we had with Yukiko - she arrived early in her beautiful kimono and wow we did so much in an afternoon - she was very caring with fans for us all as it was very very hot. Showing us how to use the subway was wonderful as we were then able to manage this for the rest of our time in Tokyo. Her knowlwdge of the history of Tokyo was shared with us so readily. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and glad she was available for us as we would certainly recommend her services as a wonderful guide. Thankyou

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Cecily! It was a lovely meeting all of you. I am glad that the orientation helped you on your free day and enjoyed the tour. Hope you will have memorable days in other countries as well. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Best Tokyo Tour Guide!! ”

From the day I booked Yukiko, I spent we started communicating and planning our itinerary with all the places we wanted to visit in our short 3 day stay. We spent 3 wonderful days in Tokyo with Yukiko. From the moment we met Yukiko she had a smile across her face and was very welcoming to us. She has extensive knowledge about Japanese culture and history. We learned about Japanese customs that are done at the temples and shrines. Yukiko ensured we were able to explore the various places that we were interested in visiting such as Harajuku, Shibuya, Ueno, etc. She is extremely patient-I had developed swollen ankles and could not walk fast so Yukiko walked beside me to insure I was ok and always had me sit on the trains. Thank you Yukiko for making our time in TOkyo unforgettable.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your heartfelt review, Alice! I hope that your feet condition got better and enjoy staying in Kyoto now. I am so glad to hear that you had memorable days in Tokyo. Thank you once again and hope you will visit Japan again. Domo Arigatou!!

“ Brilliant day for party of 11 - 6 adults and 5 children!!! ”

I contacted some guides/companies but they either wouldn’t take a party of our size or didn’t understand what was required for 5 children aged 6-10. Two hours in a market?? Yukiko worked with me so that we had an excellent day, which was perfect for everyone. Thank you Yukiko.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for writing a review, Eril! It was a very nice meeting all of your family and you're so wonderful grandma. I am very happy that our all surprise succeeded and everyone had an excellent day. Thank you once again and have a safe back to your country. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Great 2 days in Tokyo with kids ”

Yukiko was a wonderful tour guide. She was great at communicating before the trip and was extremely thorough in her preparation. She planned extra activities such as teaching my daughter origami while riding the train to our next stop and preparing a treasure hunt at the Meiji Shrine. She was flexible on planning and could make adjustments on the itinerary as needed. It is obvious that she truly loves the traditional culture of Japan as well as being able to offer suggestions of what to do understand current cultural trends.

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for writing a wonderful review, Melissa! I really appreciate it. I'm glad to hear that you had great 2 days with me. I'm always thinking how to show and explain our culture and visiting spots to my guests from all over the world. So if they enjoyed these extra activities and could help to learn and expand their interests about Japan, I am very happy. I'm sure that your family enjoy touring in Kyoto now. Please bring back a lot of memories of Japan. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Knowledgeable and Friendly ”

I asked Yukiko for a half-day tour of a few places. She customized a tour to match my interests. Each place we visited, she was very knowledgeable about each location and happily answered all my questions. It was very nice to chat with her. At the end of the tour, we visited a park where she suggested a few places close by to visit before we went our separate ways. I had a great experience with Yukiko, thank you.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your warm review, Randy! I also had an enjoyable time to talk with you in both English and Japanese. I'm glad we could touch a Japanese beautiful arts and experienced a religious part of Japan. There are more valuable visiting places all over Japan. I hope I will meet you again in the near future.
