“ Tour around asakusa area and beyond ”

Makiko was waiting in the foyer for us as planned and was a delightful host. Her English is very good so communication went well. Although the weather turned against us and the rain set in for most of our tour, we managed to see the fish markets followed by a delightful sushi meal at an authentic restaurant near the fish markets, followed by a trip to Ueno station to register our JR pass , which was very helpful. As the weather cleared Makiko then took us to the Shrines and marketplaces in Asakusa. She is very educated in all aspects of Japanese culture and informed us about cultural aspects as we walked around . All in all a very good experience and learnt a lot about the area . Would highly recommend Makiko as a tour guide . Cathy and Russell, Sydney, Australia

“ A day of adventure and fun with Makiko in Tokyo! ”

TAKE ALL OF OUR MONEY! Not only was Makiko very knowledgeable in her local knowledge, she also spoke excellent English and has a keen love of people. She was accommodating and genuinely interested in what we wanted to see and do. There was flexibility on the day and we ended up seeing so much in a short time - Asakusa, Gardens near GInza, Hedgehog Cafe in Harajuku, Meiji Temple and Shrine and a river cruise where Makiko showed us many more 'must do's' that we visited the following day. Full of smiles and wisdom, we would gladly spend time with Makiko any day of the year!

“ Makiko was excellent! ”

Makiko too our family of 5 under her wing and helped us get acclimated on our first day in Tokyo. She took us to Tokyo Station and assisted with translation to get our Shinkasen tickets for Kyoto and then proceeded to show us how to used the Metro and public transit system to get around -- a really simple system once it's explained to you. We had advised that our kids (university aged) were not heavy tour takers and liked to stop and explore when in interested them and just move on when it didn't. Makiko totally understood this and was patient when the twins stopped to take photos and explore behind doors and walls and gardens. As a local, Makiko was able to share with us secrets -- like which vendor had the best snacks and secret lookout points. Makiko's ability to adjust to what we wanted to do as opposed to a fixed and rigid tour schedule made it great for our family. We really appreciated her helping us with the basics on our first day and sharing her tips on what to do in the different districts. There is SO MUCH to do and see in Tokyo and getting a heads up on the first day was fantastic. Makiko, we had a great time with you. Thank you.
