Important

I can meet you in Tokyo (at your hotel or at Asakusa station) if you would like (an extra charge would be applied).
Nikko is famous for beautiful autumnal leaves, so it can be very crowded in October and November. We should avoid visiting on weekends around that period if possible. We may have to skip some places if the traffic is very heavy.

“ Wonderful day with Makiko in Kamakura! ”

We had an absolutely wonderful day with Makiko in Kamukura on February 3 upon hiring her as a private guide for our group of 3. She met us at our hotel (and was there even a bit early) and deftly managed the metro and train systems to get us to Kamakura, then navigated our journey on foot to some of the most beautiful temples and shrines, giving us lots of history along the way. Makiko is friendly, personable and speaks impeccable English. In addition to being a great guide, we also enjoyed simply spending time with Makiko and getting to know more about her and about Tokyo and Kamakura. I highly recommend Makiko as a guide and if we were staying longer I would hire her for additional tours!

Makiko:

Thank you so much for a great review! I am very happy to hear you enjoyed my tour to Kamakura. It was a pleasure to be your guide. I had a wonderful time with all of you, such an enjoyable conversation! I hope you come back and meet again. Have a lovely time for the rest of your stay in Tokyo. My warm regards to Dana and Lisa.

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Yes I was lucky... nice weather, not so many people and the antique market just opened today, but I would never had such beautiful experience without the help of Makiko. In a few hours I have visited so many interesting places and had so many new experiences.. the fish market (the big tuna cut was amazing..), the antique market, the temples, the local food... everything perfect. I left Tokyo knowing that I still have a lot to discover and sure I’ll be back. Thank you Makiko!

Makiko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review! I am happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. I had a lovely time with you. We went to quite many places and experienced a lot. It was such a fun to talk about lots of things. One day is not enough to explore Tokyo. Please come back sometime with your family and hope to meet you again. Have a great day tomorrow.

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

We had an amazing time with Makiko. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and fun. She communicated with us several times in the weeks leading up to our tour. I had a few ideas of what we wanted to see and she incorporated those into other popular and traditional places to visit. She made sure we ate at a place that accommodated everyone’s tastes. Makiko is fluent in English and very easy to understand. We were with her for a full day and she providesd us with ideas for our remaining days in Tokyo. Tour was very fairly priced. Great experience!!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review! Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. I had a wonderful time to spend with all of you and talked about many things! It was pleasure to be your guide in Tokyo. Hope you can come back sometime and meet again, maybe in spring? My best regards to Joe, David and Debra.
