We had the pleasure of touring Tokyo with Nobuko. Not only was she delightful but also excellent in taking us around Tokyo. We enjoyed a Buddhist fire ceremony and it was one of those really special life experiences. We enjoyed the places she took us but our lunch together was really the highlight of the day as Nobuko took us to a place that we wouldn’t have chosen on our own. We had one of the most delicious meals that we had in Japan. She took us for Japanese pizza, which really wasn’t like pizza at all. Not only was the food fantastic but our conversations with Nobuko greatly enhanced the experience. Nobuko’ English was very easy for us to understand. She made our day special with all her knowledge and personality. Thank you Shelly
Dear Shelly, Thank you for your great review!! And I appreciate your souvenir (chocolate biscuits). I have already eaten all of them with my daughter.They were very delicious! I am so happy to know you enjoyed the tour yesterday, because my most favorite place in Tokyo is Fukagawa Fudoson Temple where we watched sacred fire ceremony together. I also enjoyed grilling Japanese pizza called Okonomiyaki with you. Strange can venders were also interesting! I am glad our taste is similar. Please come to Tokyo next time for longer days. I am searching more interesting hidden places for you. See you again! Nobuko
My family of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our time with Nobu. She helped create an itinerary for my family and was very accommodating when I needed to make a last minute change. We hit up Tsijiki, Akihabara, and Ueno Zoo. She is very knowledgeable about the sites in Tokyo and helped us navigate the subway/train systems. She was also very good with my young daughter so I highly recommend booking her if you have children. She even went out of her way to help us purchase train tickets to Hakone and Kyoto. She is such a nice person and a very awesome tour guide.
Dear Ann, Thank you for your fantastic review! It was so cold yesterday, wasn’t it? However, I really enjoyed the zoo tour with your family. What a cute girl Esmee was! I remember my sweet memory of my family trips when my children were very small. I hope all of you will enjoy the trip of Hakone and Kyoto. Please give my best regards to Que!
I really enjoyed my day in Kamakura with Nobuko
Dear Yousef, Thank you for your nice review! Kamakura tour with you was so interesting. I was impressed by your curiosity for Japanese culture, food and history,You seemed to be enjoying the crowd in the train.Additionally, I remember the happy time in Dubai seven years ago. You looked a little bit tired in the end of the tour, so please take a rest well. See you again. Nobuko
Nobuko guided us for a day tour in Tokyo and another one in the Hakone area. Excellent itinerary suggestion, very knowledgeable of the different places and in general of Japan history and culture. Very flexible and resourceful if changes need to be made. Highly recommended
Dear Gorge, Thank you for your great review! I am so impressed with it indeed. I also enjoyed the tour with you very much! I was so curious about the difference of culture between your country and Japan when we were talking. I hope you will also enjoy Kyoto, Osaka and Nara. If you have something you want to know, feel free to ask me anytime during staying in Japan. Please send my best regards to Pablo !
Nobuko is very sweet, knowledgeable and so accommodating. We spent 8 hours running around seeing temples, shrines, parks and the all very important ( according to my boys) fish market. We were exhausted, but Nobuko was full of energy and made sure we made it back to our hotel safely. It was a wonderful day. We could never have done our first day in Tokyo with out her. We feel lucky she was with us!
