We highly recommend Tomoko. Her organized and yet flexible approach to planning and leading our 1/2 day experience with her made it one of the highlights of our time in Tokyo. Every person in our group of 5 wished we had been able to spend more time with her. Despite our limited time, we did not feel rushed as she helped us make the most of each site, pointing out and explaining specific and unique historic as well as cultural details we might otherwise have missed. She shared lots of information, including photos and other visual information before and after the tour. Tomoko’s genuine interest in other people, her knowledge and enthusiasm for historic and current aspects of Japanese culture AND her sense of humor made her made her an excellent guide for our group.
Thank you for taking your time to post such a nice review, Susan. Yes, I also wished that we could spend more time together! Even though our time was limited, I appreciated it that you clarified what you had done already, where you would visit later, your major interest and what you would not be able to miss before the tour and even during the tour. It’s amazing that we DID cover all those venues without rush, such as Kanda Myojin, Origami Center, Yushima Tenjin, Yanaka, and part of Tokyo National Museum in only 5 hours while enjoying the local Italian restaurant. Thank you again for sharing fun time with you and your great company, Bill, Anne, Pam and Addison. Best wishes! 😊
we spent a wonderful exiting relaxing day with tomoko. struggling around in yanaka and ueno, looking at temples, shops, different surroundings, cementary, learning a lot of tokyos history. eating soba noodles and sake in a small nontouristic place. we love tomoko.
Thank you for your warm review and for sharing relaxing Saturday together, Daniela and Peter. We did not visit many places but I’m glad you enjoyed strolling around and appreciating the local areas of Nezu, Yanaka, and Ueno. We were lucky to see the Japanese family event of ‘7-5-3,’ and so many adorable young children dressed up in Kimono! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay and the Tokyo National Museum fully. With love – Tomoko😊
Tomoko was not only knowledgeable and responsive, she was also very kind and fun and empathetic. We could tell she really wanted us to learn about and have a great experience in Tokyo and Japan. We have had good guides in other countries but she was the best ever! Highly recommended.
Thank you for posting such a nice review just after we departed! I really enjoyed every moment shared with you and Joan, all the gardens, flowers, Koi fish, birds, Buddhist temples and statues, food, brightly lit downtown, and such and such. Above all, I enjoyed the conversation with you two. I’m impressed with your choice of accommodation and the way to acclimate yourself to different culture. I feel very my blessed to talk with you Joan😊 Thank you again, Don and Joan. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.
We toured 2 days with Tomoko, in Tokyo and Kamakura. She is an excellent guide and an incredibly nice person! Knowledgeable, flexible, open-minded. We learnt a lot! Kamakura being her childhood place it added a very personal feeling to all the experience. Thank you Tomoko:))
Thank you for the two fun and beautiful days, Svetlana and Lemy! I’m so glad you enjoyed the days, too. We explored a little hidden places both in Tokyo and Kamakura. As your interests were varied and spontaneous, we could experience a lot unexpected. I will never forget the beautiful sunset of Kamakura beach and the tides and water we dipped our legs into. :) ありがとうございました。とてもたのしかったです。またね！（Thank you very much. That was so much fun. See you again!）
Tomko guided us for 2 days in Tokyo (3 adults from Israel) . She showed us the city in the best way with her great knowledge. We learned so much, and had the opportunity to see things that we would never see without her guidance. In addition,her excitment and love to the city is well felt, and added to the whole experience. We recommend Tomko's guidance to anyone who wants to have a significant trip in Tokyo.
Thank you for your great review, Alon. I really enjoyed the company of you and your lovely children. The weather on our first day was not quite favorable, but we did a lot both outdoors and indoors, from the jam-packed train and downtown to calm, quiet local districts. The coffee cheered us up! It was also fun to learn a little bit about each other’s culture and languages. I’m also glad that you found the perfect souvenir for your wife at the last moment of our tour. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay and see you again in the future. Thank you Alon, Kim, and Idan.😊
