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.

“ Excellent Tour of Kamakura from Tokyo ”

My husband and I really enjoyed our day exploring Kamakura with Makiko. Makiko spoke perfect English, and was very knowledgeable about of the sites that we visited. She navigated efficiently from site to site in Kamakura, always choosing the best mode of transportation. I wasn't feeling well the day of our tour, and Makiko went out of her way to accommodate me. Makiko also has a flower arrangement business, and we enjoyed hearing her perspective on the flowers we saw. Makiko was so pleasant to be around, and we highly recommend booking her for Kamakura! I am sure she would be excellent as a Tokyo guide as well.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for such a wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour to Kamakura. I had lovely time with you and your husband. Such a nice couple! We talked a lot about lots of things! Hope you enjoyed the rest of time in Japan. Looking forward to meeting you again! Please come back in different season and enjoy flowers and nature. My warm regards to Will. Makiko

“ Awesome visit with great guide ”

My wife and I had the good fortune to have selected Makiko as our guide in Tokyo for four days. She was very attentive to our needs and was pleasant to be with. She escorted us around Tokyo in an efficient and time effective manner. We usually used public transportation which was efficient and fast. Tokyo’s subway and train system is amazing. Makiko is well versed in the history, culture and religion of Japan. Her command of English is excellent. We highly recommend Makiko.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review! Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. It was a pleasure to be your guide for 3 days. Such a lovely time for me to spend with both of you. Hope to see you again. My warm regards to Sandy. Makiko

“ 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
