“ Money well spent! ”

Yukiko took us through two whirlwind days around Tokyo. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly! Just having her lead us through the public transportation nightmare that is the Tokyo transit system was worth every penny spent on a private guide. Thanks for an amazing trip!

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I'm pleased to hear that the tour was worth to spend your time and money. I always hope my tour would be meaningful and memorable for my clients so that I'm very happy. I wish you'll have a great time in other cities on your pace and a lot of beautiful memories will stay in your mind. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ 4 day tour ”

Yukiko was amazing! She was knowledgeable, friendly and always did her best. Yukiko was always accommodating and trying to fit our itinerary. She always provided alot of info about the places we were going to visit. She took care of everything for us. If it was raining she would be prepared with umbrellas and raincoats for all of us. If it was hot, she would have fans for us to cool down with. Yukiko was so caring to our family. My daughter and son really loved Yukiko. She was more than a guide, she became our friend! Thank you Yukiko for everything! I loved the 7 lucky cats you drew! See you again soon! Take care!

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Christine! It is very warm and I am impressed. Every places we visited and the time we spent together will last in my heart as a great memory. I hope 7 lucky cats will bring more happiness and good luck to you and your family. I always welcome your next visit. See you again! Domo Arigatou!!

“ 2 days touring Tokyo ”

Yukiko was our guide in Tokyo. We had 2 days booked for my family, my husband and 2 children ages 11 and 12. Yukkio was very knowledgeable and flexible, we never felt pressure to keep to the itinerary. She picked great sites and restaurants for us. She even went out of her way to find a soccer shop, so my son could purchase a Japanese Soccer shirt! She really did her best to ensure that the kids were engaged and having a good time. When we return to Tokyo, we will definitely reach out to Yukiko!

YUKIKO:

Thank you very much for your warm and heartfelt review, Jennifer! I really appreciated it. I also thank you to share your valuable time in Tokyo with me. I'd like to improve my guiding skills more for your future visit. There are many attractive sites in Tokyo and nearby area that I would like to show you. I welcome your visit always. Thank you once again! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Tokyo Day Tour ”

Our personalised day tour with Yukiko was fantastic. It was definitely a highlight of our Japanese holiday. We had an amazing day visiting many tourist sites in Tokyo. Having a private tour allowed us to personalise our day to suit our family needs. Yukikko was extremely professional, kind, considerate and answered all our questions along the way. Do not hesitate to book a private tour. We highly recommend Yukiko as a private guide. 5 stars from us! Thank you Yukiko Regards, Sophie

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your warm review, Sophie!! I am pleased that my tour became one of the highlights of your Japan trip. Your kids are very lovely and adorable. If some memories of Japan remain in thier minds, that would be wonderful. I always welcome you and hope to meet you again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!

“ Lovely, patient, and skillful. ”

Yukiko taught an origami lesson to three children, 8,10, and 12 years old. She was wonderful! She began with simple objects and moved to increasingly complicated creations as the kids caught on quickly through her patient and skillful instruction. She wore a kimono which they also loved, and really enjoyed their time with her. I'd highly recommend Yukiko to any family!

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for taking my Origami lesson! I was so impressed that they caught on quickly my instruction and we made 7 different kinds of Origami craft during the lesson. Even after the lesson time was over, they continued to create so many small sized hearts to make a wall decoration on a paper board. I'm so glad that they really enjoyed the lesson and loved Origami. Domo Arigatou!!
