Important

Toshogu Shrine is built in a deep forest and has a lot of steep stairs. Please be aware that it is pretty hard to go up and down those steep staircases with strollers.
The staircases were made of stones and pretty slippery on a rainy day and just after a rain. Please come with walking shoes.
We need to remove shoes in the worship hall and adjacent building so please do not forget to put on socks or stockings. The floor of the shrine is cold.

“ Reiko: Bridging the Cultural Divide Between the West and Extending Beyond the Duties of a Guide ”

Each day we were with Reiko was so simple and easy, that as we transitioned train stations, visited shrines and monuments, and engaged in conversation with waiters and staff (all in predominantly Japanese speaking places) there was no stress or discomfort that often coincides with full days of sight-seeing and travel. Reiko knew the most efficient ways to each station and we actually described her as a "terminator" as she navigated the smallest of corridors and expertly used her energy. Most importantly though, beyond the tasks required of her job she was incredibly personable and so sweet. She was quite knowledgable of Japanese history but also laughed and smiled becoming a part of our family dynamic. Basically, we fell in love with Reiko-San and wouldn't have survived without her.

RIEKO:

Dear Jeffrey, Susan, Hanna, and Cole, Thank you so so so much for your immediate and super warm review! I was very happy to spend three days with such a happy and great family and I miss you. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and come back to Japan soon. I hope that it will be sunny and you can enjoy good views of Mt. Fuji. Many thanks again and see you soon.

“ Japan day tour ”

Rieko was a very nice tour guide for our trip to Tokyo. She was at our hotel on time and she showed us alot of places and facts about Tokyo that we never knew. Our tour was going good but was not great only because we didnt get to see the imperial gardens that day not because of anything Rieko could have done but because President Trump was there that day and the closed that part of the gardens. I would recommend Rieko for anyone who wants to see Tokyo in a small amount of time and have a personal tour guide to show it to you.

RIEKO:

Dear Jeff, Jolanda, and Angelica, Thank you for your review. And that was too bad that the East Garden was closed temporarily during three days while President Trump was in Japan. In addition, on the day we visited, he was not in Tokyo! Please come back soon. The East Garden is beautiful in April, May, June and autumn. See you soon.

“ Yokohama at the height of Golden Week ”

Saw the best of Kamakura and Yokohama thanks to good planning by Reiko. Invaluable as a transportation escort and most informative about the history of the sights we visited. Quite personable and energetic; you may have to declare "uncle" when you are ready to slow down or stop. Most delightful!

RIEKO:

Dear Connie san, Thank you for your great review! I am so grateful for such sweet words. During the tours I had a very good time with you and enjoyed talking with you a lot. I hope you are enjoying a good cruise on a gorgeous boat. Have a good trip and come back to Japan one day. Please send warm regards to Paul san. Rieko

“ Kamakura tour ”

Great tour! Rieko is very knowledgeable and helpful. She shows us how to use the train and subway system in Japan. She revises the tour schedule to include all places that we'd like to see.

RIEKO:

Dear Chi san and Thi san Thank you for your review! I had a great time with you. Hopefully, I will see you soon again. Let us go to Nikko for your next visit to Japan. Have a good day and enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.
