“ When I told her I want to go to the school I attended as a child, she located it and initiated a call to them and then forward to me the web address. ”

It was a wonderful day. It began at the school I attended in K-2 grades and the the Dean of Admissions gave us an hour long tour and showed me the building where I would have had classes. It was rich. Then we visited a park near by that she thought was lovely and I probably went to as a child. On the way I spotted a pastry shop so we digressed for a treat and coffee. And walked thru the neighborhood of Hiro-o. Then we went to the Japanese Traditional Crafts Aoyama Square that I said I want to see as I love to see pottery and crafts of a country. Had a wonderful lunch along the way and then went to the gardens of the Imperial Palace and concluded with going to a big toy story for gifts for grandchildren. It was a fun, delightful day with Kazue who had a good listening hear and sugg... read more

Kazue:

“ Our customised tour in Tokyo with Kazue! ”

We had the most amazing day with Kazue during our tour in Tokyo! She is very friendly, polite and we really enjoyed our day with her visiting Tokyo! We contacted Kazue on her availability before arriving in Japan and she was very prompt to respond with ideas on how to customise our tour. After a few emails our plan was set and ready for our one-day (8hrs) tour of Tokyo. She introduced us to must-see areas, shrines/temples and food of Tokyo. The fact that she speaks perfect English, made our life so much easier when we needed a translator into Japanese. She made the first day of our honeymoon very special!

Kazue:

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Panos! I was honored to be the guide for the first day of your honeymoon. It was great that you let me know what you would expect on this tour in advance, which helped me a lot to understand your needs and suggest the itinerary. For me as well, it was an unforgettable, special tour. I'm happy to meet both of you and hope we can see each other again. Wishing you both a happily ever after!
