We booked a 1 day tour in Yokohama with Yukiko and found it very pleasing. From the start of the booking process we had a long and continuous chat as to what to expect and detailed information about the tour. Yukiko responded well with all of our questions prior to booking and make everything simple and clear. On the day of the tour, she helped us guide with the process to get to Yokohama because we opted to meet her there at the station. We are glad to be guided well on the day and we found Yukiko to be very well mannered, easy to understand, serving, and informative. We would recommend anyone to be guided with Yukiko. Cheers, Joseph and family.

We visited Japan for 4 days and decided to have Yukiko as our guide for 2 days. Fortunately she was available during the days we were traveling. She was very responsive and insured that we had a perfect trip. She informed us about the weather forecast and helped us to swap Mount Fuji with Tokyo tour to ensure we have the best experience for Mount Fuji and Tokyo. She also helped us to arrange a tour for Kyoto with one of her colleagues with triple lights. Provided us with detailed navigation instructions to how to get to Kyoto and back. She was always at time and ensured our needs and requests were met. In short, amazing experience. All we did was to follow her and listen / learn about history of beautiful Japan. THANK YOU.

Thank you for your review of myself, Titus! I'm glad that you enjoyed the nature of Mt.Fuji area and shopping. Japan has 4 distinctive seasons and many beautiful places in rural areas. I'd like to show you more on your next trip. Please enjoy the rest of your days with your family. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
My husband and I had a tour in Toyko with Yukiko in October. Yukiko promptly wrote us with a detailed itinerary but we changed our plans several times and Yukiko always had a new plan sent to us within a day. We requested to go to a shop that has old block prints and she even visited before we arrived to check it out. When I mentioned that I needed to still find some matcha tea for my sister she found a shop near our hotel and spent extra time with us tasting tea. She was a wonderful conversationalist. If we ever make it back to Tokyo we will definitely hire her again.
Thank you so much for your review Katherine!! I'm very glad that you've kept the memory of the day in your mind. I'm sure that you display beautiful old block prints, Ukiyoe at your home and enjoyed the taste of green tea. These makes you remind your enjoyable trip in Japan anytime. I'm always welcome you and would like to make your trip more wonderful as a professional guide. Thank you once again! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
