“ Day tour of Tokyo’s main attractions ”

My family had a lovely and very interesting day tour with you Shizuko! You were very informative and explained to us about the Japanese culture and history at every place we visited. You made a very detailed itinerary, which really helped us as this was our 1st trip to Tokyo! We kindly thank you for your time, and will always be grateful for the memorable experience you have given us on your day tour of Tokyo. Tokyo is such a big busy city, and for you to guide us around by train, subway and water taxi we are very fortunate for that experience. We will definitely be back to Japan for more adventures, and would recommend you to anyone for tours. Warmest regards Haylie & Family from Australia

Shizuko:

Dear Haylie, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I’m so glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour with me. I felt very happy that you could take pictures of some cherry blossoms still bloomed in the Japanese garden. I hope your younger daughter, she was a little tired in the crowds of people, is fine today and enjoy her days in Japan. Please come back to Japan someday in the future. It was so nice meeting all of you. Thank you again and give my best regards to your parents and lovely children. Shizuko

“ One day in Tokyo ”

Shizuko is a wonderful guide. She is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture. She showed us how to navigate through the underground metro maze in a few very simple steps. Shizuko made a lots of pictures during our tour and email them the same day. Also, she gave detailed information how to get to Yokoyama from Tokyo. Overall we are very satisfied with her guidence. Do not hesitate to hire her , she will not disappoint.

Shizuko:

Dear Elena, Thank you very much for your kind and warm review to me. I am so happy to hear that you have enjoyed the tour with me. I was impressed by your questions about Japanese tradition and cultures. As you said, Shinto might be something different from other religions in the sense of no-founder, no-official doctrine ad no-written scriptures. It was nice talking with you. And next time, please come back to Japan with your children. I love to see them. I hope you enjoy wonderful cruising trip and happy time the rest of your days. Thank you once again. Shizuko

“ Lovely personality. Totally profitable ”

We had a fantastic day with Shizuko. She was on time and took us to the areas we had prearranged, although a couple of “Sakura” spots, as it was full bloom. We learned so much about the history and culture of the area and of Japan in general. I would highly recommend using Shizuko. Her English was very good. Thank you, Shizuko for making our trip memorable.

Shizuko:

Dear Henrietta, Thank you very much for having me as your guide on that day and sending me such a great review. Tsukiji has so much to see, and I thought it may have been too short to enjoy there to the fullest. So, I am so glad to hear that you have enjoyed the tour with me. I enjoyed myself showing you interesting Japanese food stuffs in Tsukiji Outer Market and having nice Tofu lunch at the traditional restaurant in Asakusa. By the way, how did you like Wakayama city? I believe you had a wonderful time with your friend in a peaceful Kansai region. I hope to see you again when you’ll visit Japan to see your friend next time. It was nice meeting you and your husband. Thank you very much again. Shizuko

“ Perfect introduction to Tokyo and Japan ”

We are a family of three, and we are spending a two-week vacation in Japan. On our first day, Shizuko gave us a perfect introductory tour to Tokyo and Japan. We started at Hamarikyu garden, continued with Asakusa and the Senso-Ji temple, saw the Shibuya crossing, experienced Harajuku, and finished the day at the Meiji Jingu shrine. We had a wonderful tea ceremony in a tea house at Hamarikyu and enjoyed delicious ramen noodles in a tiny restaurant in Asakusa. We learned to navigate the Tokyo metro (once we had an introduction it was much easier than we thought), and Shizuko helped us to activate our JR pass. On top of that, she gave us good recommendations for the next day and took some nice pictures of us in Tokyo. Shizuko is very knowledgable, well prepared, organized, patient, and fully ... read more

Shizuko:

Dear Dietmar, Thank you very much for your warm review, Dietmar. I really appreciate it. Although it was a little early to enjoy cherry blossoms in Tokyo, I’m so glad to know you enjoyed the tour. I myself enjoyed and had a fun with you and your family with talking about many things. Especially it was so impressive for me to hear about health insurance systems in the US, Germany and Spain you explained. It was really nice to learn like this. I hope you will continue a wonderful trip and have a chance to enjoy cherry blossoms in full bloom while you are in Japan. Thank you again and give my best regards to your family. Shizuko

“ PERFECT guide in Tokyo!!! ”

Ms. Shizuko was a most perfect guide, and we couldn't have asked for more!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her, and was able to see and experience so much more than if we did it on our own! Communication with Shizuko was so easy, and she truly took the time and effort to plan a day that was custom to our interests and needs, but still flexible on the day of our tour. Above and beyond that, she even investigated, recommended and provided information regarding other places that we planned to visit on our own, to make our stay in Japan as easy and enjoyable for us as possible. She came with a friendly smile that lasted all day, and she came so well-prepared (with a bag full of everything you might need). She was one of our favorite parts of our visit to Tokyo, and my family has so m... read more

Shizuko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review for me, Therese. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the plan I prepared in Tokyo for you. I could prepare them, because you told me about your request and talked each other well in advance. I myself enjoyed and had a fun with you and your family with talking about many things. Whenever I look my Pokemon-stick, I remember your charming children. (^ ^) I hope you will come back to Japan someday in the future. Thank you again and give my best regards to your husband and children. Shizuko
