“ Great Day With Rieko ”

Had a great day seeing the area being well looked after by our excellent English speaking guide.

RIEKO:

Dear Lachlan san, Thank you for your warm review! I was so glad you two enjoyed Kamakura a lot in spite of a very hot and humid day. Thank you again and have a good cruise tour. I would love to see you soon. Rieko

“ Timms Temple Thank You! ”

From the courtesy 1st extended by Rieko through meeting us in the Lobby of our hotel in Yokosuka and her patience by answering our multitude of question throughout our day spent together in KAMAKURA her experience and expertise was much appreciated. "Ricki" saved us from the stress of having to rely on our amateur skills with using the train and bus systems. Most likely allowing us to be able to visit 5 of the temples/shrines in a organized and efficient manner. When it came to providing information on the history of the temples and shrines we visited we found her guidance most appreciated. She kept the 3 of us interested (1 a 15 yr old young lady). If all of the guides representing Triple Lights are as congenial as Rieko I would have no problems using the service in the future.

RIEKO:

Dear D. san, Thank you for your great review! I am afraid I hardly deserve such a great compliment. The time we spent together was very enjoyable for me, too. You listened to me very carefully and asked a lot to enjoy the tour and it is a memorable tour for me. I appreciated it. Please come back to Japan soon and I would be very happy if I see you again then. Send my best regards to your husband and lovely niece, Thank you again.

“ Wonderful day at Kamakura ”

Reiko met us at our hotel in Tokyo and brought us to Kamakura. She was punctual, courteous and planned our itinerary very intelligently. We successfully visited all the Temples we wanted with the minimum of backtracking and had a nice lunch at a local restaurant with handmade soba . I would recommend Reiko strongly.

RIEKO:

Dear Sze san Thank you for your writing such a warm review very promptly! I was very happy to be with you, very happy family. Your daughter, Anne san and your son, Derek san were both very polite and listened to me very carefully. And I talked with Chris san a lot and had a good time. It was a memorable tour for me, too. Thanks a lot and I hope I can see you again in the near future. Rieko

“ Best time in Tokyo ”

Rieko took care of me and my children during our visit in Tokyo. She made sure that our day was packed with wonderful sites to see, and yet we did not feel like we were rushed. We had a nice lunch and even made a stop at a milk tea store when it was already starting to get hot. We were able to visit many sites of Tokyo, and understood its culture more because of Reiko. She gave us a lot of information behind the places we visited which kept my teen aged children interested. It would have been impossible for us to see Tokyo's best if we tried to do it on our own. Reiko even took us back to our hotel despite it is already past the hour that we hired her for, and suggested how we could get to our destination the next day. Thank you so much, Reiko! You made our visit in Japan very memorable. W... read more

RIEKO:

Dear Anne san, Thank you very much for your writing such a warm review! I was very happy to be with a happy family like you and am happy to hear that you liked my tour. It was very grateful that all of you listened to me very carefully and asked lots of questions. I hope all of your stay in Japan was very memorable and come back to Japan some day in the near future. Please send best regards to your pretty daughters, Kiana, Demi, and smart son, Sean. See you again and thanks a lot. Rieko

“ Reiko: Bridging the Cultural Divide Between the West and Extending Beyond the Duties of a Guide ”

Each day we were with Reiko was so simple and easy, that as we transitioned train stations, visited shrines and monuments, and engaged in conversation with waiters and staff (all in predominantly Japanese speaking places) there was no stress or discomfort that often coincides with full days of sight-seeing and travel. Reiko knew the most efficient ways to each station and we actually described her as a "terminator" as she navigated the smallest of corridors and expertly used her energy. Most importantly though, beyond the tasks required of her job she was incredibly personable and so sweet. She was quite knowledgable of Japanese history but also laughed and smiled becoming a part of our family dynamic. Basically, we fell in love with Reiko-San and wouldn't have survived without her. Deserv... read more

RIEKO:

Dear Jeffrey, Susan, Hanna, and Cole, Thank you so so so much for your immediate and super warm review! I was very happy to spend three days with such a happy and great family and I miss you. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and come back to Japan soon. I hope that it will be sunny and you can enjoy good views of Mt. Fuji. Many thanks again and see you soon.
