“ wonderful guide ”

We had a great experience touring with Kumiko. She was very knowledgable and informative, as well as having a great nature. All of this made for a memorable and very enjoyable four hour tour of the local shrines, markets, park and temples. In addition her style was very flexible and accommodating which we truly appreciated. To sum it up, we could not have asked for a better guide. Thanks Kumiko :)


Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Sharon! I also had so much fun hosting such a fun-loving family. In 4 hours, we visited Senso-ji, Asakusa-shrine, Tokyo Sky Tree and ended the tour in Harajuku. I trust you enjoyed Tokyo. Please give my best regards to your family. It was such a good surprise that your daughter got a No. 1 lucky at Senso-ji temple, wasn't it!
