“ A brilliant day in Tokyo with Nobuko ”

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a fantastic day with Nobuko in Tokyo in early September. The entire day was simply outstanding from start to finish. Nobuko's manner and professionalism is only matched by her knowledge and passion for the city. Nobuko organised a personal itinerary that covered all of our main interests as well as making some brilliant suggestion for our other days in Tokyo. A guide in Tokyo is a great way to get around and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Nobuko's services. Thank you Nobuko and thank you Tokyo !


Dear Damian and Fiona, Thank you so much for your hearty messages. I am happy to know you have enjoyed Tokyo very much ! I also enjoyed the time with you. It made me remember the memory of visiting Dublin many years ago. Please come to Tokyo again. I will show you more deep & hidden places and my favorite shops in Tokyo next time. I am looking forward to seeing you again ! Best regards , Nobuko

“ Interesting tour ”

Greatly enjoyed the itinerary Nobu arranged for us. Gave us many options and detailed information about how to do others at a later date. Her care for three elderly clients extended to ensuring we had seats on the metro.


Dear Michael, Thank you for your warm review. I am very happy to know you enjoyed our tour. Especially, the fire ritual of Fukagawa Fudoson Temple was so sacred, was'nt it ? I was a little bit sory that the tour was for only 4 hours. I wanted to show you more interesting places in Tokyo. Please gime my best regards to your families and stay longer time in Tokyo next time!

“ Nobuko is an outstanding guide ”

Nobuko took our family on an incredible eight hour tour on our first day in Tokyo. She is very knowledgeable, extremely nice and caring and very flexible. We can’t believe how much we saw in one day, all by taking subways and walking around with her. I can’t imagine navigating the subways and neighbourhoods so efficiently and enjoyably on our own. There’s very little English (although signs in the subway are in English) in Tokyo and it is so so helpful to have an English speaking Japanese guide. Nobuko went out of her way to find a restaurant that could accommodate some special food needs of our family. I wanted to buy a good quality kitchen knife and she knew just where to take me. My husband and I and our three twenty something children had an outstanding day! We highly recommend Nobu... read more


Dear Lisa, Thank you for a great review. It encouraged me so much! I really enjoyed the tour with you and your family. It was a very wounderful time for me. Especially, I was so impressed to know Solomon's Japanese is excellent ! I learned how tasty Hummus is thanks to Ariel and Shira. I will try to make it myself. And I appreciate Zindel for much consideration. Please send my best regards to everyone. Additionally, please tell Solomon to ask me about Japanese anytime! I hope I can meet all of you again. See you!

“ Exciting and full day! ”

It was a really good experience and we’re very glad we’ve booked with Nobuko; There was no way to see so much in such a short time! The lunch in a quiet neighborhood was great! Thank you so much for your guidance, Nonuko;


Hello, Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our tour yesteday. As it was very hot and humid, you must have been very tired during the tour yesteday. Additionally, I hope you enjoyed TEAM LABO, TOKYO SKY TREE, and EAST GARDEN and so on today. Please have a nice trip to Kyoto and Hiroshima in this week. Could you give my best regards to your family? Nobuko

We gave Nobuko the task of shopping -- both specific items (such as coffee thermos) and general items (such as Japanese brand name clothes for women). When we met with Nobuko, it was obvious that she had spent a lot of research time on our requests -- she had over 15 different places for us to shop! We concentrated in The Ginza and Ometo-sando areas, finishing with a visit to her recommended hair salon!


Dear Elliot, Thank you for your review. It was very hot and humid, wasn’t it yesterday?However The shopping tour with you and Pam in Ginza was very interesting. And I like the clothes Pam bought. I am sorry that we cannot go to all of the shops which are planned at the first because of time limit. Anyway I hope you and Pam will enjoy in Kyoto also. Give my best regards to Pam, please. Nobuko
