“ Polite,caring,knowledgeable, and always ready to please. ”

We have spent five wonderful days with Michiko seeing as much of Japan as we could each day. We learned how to navigate the subway system. Michiko taught us the “ Japanese Weave “—how to move forward in the crowded underground subway corridors. That skill proved invaluable getting from point A to point B. One highlight of our various tours was a visit to the Bonsai Museum. Michiko is a member of the Bonsai Academy and an accomplished bonsai artist who explained everything about this art form. I could not believe we saw some bonsai art that has been living for over 1000 years! One example of going the extra mile—Michiko got a cold yesterday and lost her voice.

“ Lovely Lady ”

My Wife and I had 1 day in Tokyo with the lovely Michiko - what a lovely lady! she was very informative, helpful, willing to listen and a pleasure to be with. We would certainly recommend her as a tour guide around Tokyo - we had great interaction before we even met, she listened to what we wanted and delivered on what we asked for. Michiko's English was very good and she was easy to understand, which is important. Michiko took the time to explain things that we didn't undestand fully and kept at a pace that was comfortable, even though it was very hot when we visited. Thank you once again, Michiko! :)

MICHIKO:

Hi Ian, Thank you for writing a wonderful review for me. I really appreciate it. It will be my great motivation for future tours! In fact, I was deeply impressed with your knowledge of Japan. I was so happy to share a pleasant time with you two. I owe everything to you. I hope I can see you again! Best regards, Michiko

“ Excellent Tour with Michiko ”

Michiko is an excellent, caring, and attentive tour guide. We highly recommend her. My wife and I were guided by Michiko to view the cherry blossoms in Tokyo and then visited a Buddhist ceremony. We communicated our interests with Michiko and she went out of her way to make sure we would have a great tour. If you want a great tour guide, please hire Michiko!

MICHIKO:

Hi Free, Thank you for your wonderful review. I really appreciate it. See you again. Best, Michiko
