“ Great Tour Guide ”

Nobuko was great! She is very conscientious and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her as a guide.

Nobuko:

Dear Tim, Thank you for your great review ! Even though one day trip to Hiroshima was so busy, it was very meaningful for me, too. I have learned a lot from visiting of memorial sites. Besides, I was impressed with the beauty of Itsukushima Shrine. I appreciate you gave me so precious experiences indeed. I hope I can guide you Tokyo next time !

“ One Day tour ”

My son and I visited Tokyo for a few days, and decided to use one of them with a guide. We were very pleased to have chosen Nobuko out of all the guides available. She is a very knowlegdable, orgainized, and kind person. She laid out the perfect day for us. We wanted to see an overview of Tokyo and she delivered. She took us to parks, temples, and a lunch that we wouldn't have enjoyed without her help. Nobuko was able to help us with our bullit train reservation, which would have been much more difficult without her help. We just felt that we were lucky to get her, as she is an in demand guide. If she's available, I'd use her without question. Nobuko, thank you for a wonderful day.

Nobuko:

Hello Dale, Thank you very much for your warm review. It encouraged me very much. And I am so happy to know you and Jonathan enjoyed the tour on Jun 3. Of course, I enjoyed it to too! However, we walked a lot indeed, so you must have been tired. Besides, I really hope you could view Mt. Fuji from a bullet train to Sendai, even though it was cloudy on Jun 4. It was a very short trip for you this time, so please stay longer in Tokyo next time. I am looking forward to guiding you again in the future. Please send my best regards to Jonathan. Nlobuko

“ First day in Tokyo ”

“Nobu” gave us a fantastic tour for our first day in Tokyo. We went to several different areas that we wanted to see. She created an itinerary based on our interests. Pre-arrival her communication was also excellent so we knew what to expect. Now we feel we can navigate transportation to spend some time in the areas we would like to return to & new places. Highlights were Meji Shrine, Fish Market & a fantastic but reasonably priced lunch restaurant. She also helped us with purchases and ordering. Her cultural knowledge also ensured we wouldn’t make any cultural missteps and she also provided the history and background. We would only have been able to do a fraction of the things we saw on the tour. For those like us not familiar with the language, currency, areas, etc It would have b... read more

Nobuko:

Dear Leslie, Thank you for your wonderful review ! I am so happy to know you and Koner enjoyed the time with me yesterday. I also had a interesting time with you. However, it was so hot yesterday, wasn't it ? Were you OK after the tour ? Have you find something fine for suveniers in Shibuya? I hope you had a good time in Tokyo today, too. Please come to Tokyo again and stay longer next time. I am looking forward to seeing you again! Give my best regards to Koner.

“ Tours in off-the-beaten-track Tokyo and Tsukiji fish market ”

My partner and I spent a full day with Nobuko wandering through the streets of Yanaka, Shinjuku and Shibuya. The tour was extremely well planned and was exactly what we had expected- mixing well known sightseeing objects with sights off the beaten track, experiencing both traditional and modern sides of the city, and learning about Japanese culture and history. All of that at our own pace together with such a knowledgable guide like Nobu made our first day in Japan one of the best experiences that we had during the whole trip. Nobuko also arranged a sumo practice viewing for us the next day, which would have been impossible without her help. Our second tour to the Tsukiji fish market took place two weeks later. Nobu took us through the market, showing us some local specialities and introd... read more

Nobuko:

Dear Marta, Thank you for your kind review ! I am so happy to know you and Jonathan enjoyed our tour in Tokyo. I also enjoyed it with both of you. Especially, watching a sumo practice was so exciting, wasn’t it ? Thanks to you, I also got an interesting experience. Additionally, It was fun to see you tried and enjoyed many kinds of Japanese foods in Tsukiji Market. Please come to Tokyo again. I would like to guide you more next time. Give my best regards to Jonathan. See you! Nobu

“ Seeing the best of Tokyo with a pro! ”

Excellent guide. She took me to the Imperial Palace park, two shrines, lunch in a hotel restaurant high enough to see most of Tokyo and a museum reconstruction of old Japan village. The highlight was a Buddhist fire 🔥 ceremony. These were her ideas...plus she is very informative on culture and history. You can’t do better.

Nobuko:

Hello, Ken ! Thank you very much for your great review. I am glad to know you enjoyed our tour, even though you looked a little bit tired by jet lag. Besides, It was so interesting to learn some useful slangs and the difference of expressions among each part of U.S.A from you. Please have a nice flight to your country tomorrow. I am looking forward to seeing you again.
