“ our tour was short but truly memorable ”

We had a wonderful time going around with Noriko. She was patient and helped us make a tour suited for the family. We went around Tsukiji Market and was able to eat some really good fresh seafood. My little girl was able to wear a Kimono around Asakusa and spend the day like a cute little Japanese Girl. We wish we had more hours and days to go around with her. I think going around other parts of Tokyo with Noriko would be fun! Until the next trip to Tokyo!!

NORIKO:

Thank you so much for your great review, Michelle. I was very happy to spent time with you, especially with your cute kids. Your girl was fascinated by the people around her in Asakusa. I hope you will come to Japan again and if you'd like, let me introduce you other interesting spots. Japan is full of attractive things and places. I'm looking forward to seeing you again.
