“ Wonderful 1 Day Tour in Tokyo ”

We had a great day in Tokyo with Makiko. We had a full day where we visited some of Tokyo’s highlights. This was our first day of a four day stay in the city and Makiko made us feel comfortable with transportations and helped us with the rituals at shrines & temples. We enjoyed lunch at a small local restaurant and had a wonderful time. This was the perfect way to start our trip. Thanks Makiko!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review with five stars! So happy to hear you enjoyed a day with me. I had a lovely time with all of you. Hope you had a wonderful time for the rest of your stay in Japan. Hope to see you again! Makiko

“ A lovely day with a lovely person ”

From the time Makiko met us on the morning of our tour to Kamkura until she dropped us off in the evening back at our hotel in Tokyo, she was fully engaged with us, helping us to understand Japanese history, language and culture while seeing to our needs and wishes. We enjoyed every temple, garden, train ride and meal on our itinerary and also the spontaneous stops into little shops that caught our eye. The bamboo forest was a highlight as was the food hall at the Kamakura train station where we tasted many delicious seasonal Japanese delicacies. Thank you, Makiko!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review with five stars! I am so happy to hear you had a good time with me in Kamakura. It was such a pleasure to be your guide. I really enjoyed to spend a day with both of you. We talked a lot about so many things! Have a lovely time for the rest of your stay in Japan. Hope to see you again! Makiko

“ Tokyo and Nikko with Makiko ”

We had one day in Tokyo and one day inNikko with Makiko and found her very helpful, informative, and punctual. She explained the railway systems clearly, so we found our way to the appropriate stations. She answered questions about Japanese history. She `took very good care of us in Nikko, where it was pouring rain.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review! Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour for 2 days. I had a lovely time with all of you to talk about several things. Please enjoy rugby games and traveling in Japan. Hope to meet you again! Makiko

“ Tokyo and Nikko: Gardens, Shrines and Local Culture ”

Let me begin with my conclusion: Makiko is an excellent guide whom I would recommend highly. Here is why. My wife and I spent five days in and around Kyoto, visiting many significant historical and cultural sites. We traveled to Tokyo knowing we were going to a great world city, a modern metropolis. But, we maintained our interest in the historic and cultural. Makiko skillfully put together tours in Tokyo, espcially in the wonderful gardens. She also organized a very special day for us to visit Nikko, which was an exceptional experience, both from the cultural historic perspective and that of nature, with mountains, the lake and a wonderful waterfall. In short, Makiko put together a plan that worked well for us. I am confident that had we wanted to see other perspectives on Tokyo, she woul... read more

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. I truly had a lovely time with you and your wife. It was great pleasure to be your guide. Such a nice couple you are! Have a safe journey back home. Hope to see you sometime again! Please come back in different season. My warm regards to Mardi, Makiko
