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.

Our family of four had a great time seeing the best of Nikko. Makiko did a wonderful job of organizing our tour so that we could see everything in the few hours that we had in Nikko before we headed back to Tokyo. Thanks to Makiko, everything went smoothly and everyone enjoyed the time that we spent in Nikko.

“ 4 hour walking tour ”

Makiko is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the wonderful city . Her English is perfect . She is also thoroughly in taking us thru the maze of the subway system. She really went the extra mile in getting us back the station we needed to get to , even though she had a appointment with a friend . We would highly recommend her as a guide. . Emery / Susan

“ Day Trip from Tokyo to Nikko ”

Makiko was really fun to be with and clearly enjoys what she does. She is great at explaining details on temples and shrines that one cannot find in a guide book. She also took us to a very enjoyable small local restaurant that had been open for over a hundred years and was delicious.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review and your generosity. Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour in Nikko. I really had a lovely time with you and your family. They are such amazing children! Hope to see you again sometime in future. My warm regards to all of them in your family. Makiko

“ See Tokyo and Hakone with an expert ”

We delighted in having Makiko as a guide because she attended to our every need and was very attentive to our requests, regardless of how particular they were. She took cues from us and noted our pace, what we enjoyed and how long we wanted to stay at each place. She helped us with our souvenir shopping, our particular vegetarian tastes, love of artisanal chocolates, crafts , etc., and she was a totally charming guide. We felt as if we had always known her— she taught us a lot of things about Japanese life and culture, and we could not have asked for a more perfect time!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review with five stars! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour in Tokyo and Hakone. I had a lovely time with both of you. Such a fun to talk with you about several subjects! Have a great time for the rest of your stay in Japan. Hope to see you sometime again. Please come back in different season! My warm regards to Steve. Makiko

“ Great first day in Tokyo! ”

We had a great introduction to Tokyo with Makiko! She recommended us to visit the following must see sights in Tokyo for our first day in the city including Tsukijii Market, Asakusa, Meiji jingu shrine and Harajuku. Tsukijii market was great and she made recommendations on which shops had good prices on Toro sushi and where to buy the best green tea. Our trip was mid March and we were hoping to see the beautiful cherry blossoms of Japan, but we were 1-2 weeks too early to see them in full bloom, but Makiko was committed to helping us find cherry blossoms. We were delighted that Makiko found a beautiful Cherry blossom tree for us to take a family picture with in Yoyogi park. In harajuku I wanted to see the cute kawaii fashion of the Harajuku girls and Makiko brought us to an undergroun... read more

Makiko:

Thank you very much for such a great review! So happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. We were lucky to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. The family picture under the tree was lovely! I had a lovely time with you. Hope to see you again! My warm regards to everyone in your family. Makiko
