“ Great guide ”

Very friendly and sensitive guide, perfect organization of the trip from beginning to end. It was very pleasant to communicate and spend time together on the trip.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for posting such a great review, Sergey. I was so glad to show you around my hometown, Ashikaga and Ashikaga Flower Park. The famous wisteria was not in full bloom, but it was almost the best season and I was very happy to see all of you (especially your wife and daughter) were pleased to see the flower and take beautiful photos! I'm grateful for all of your kindness during the tour. I hope you enjoyed your journey in japan. Hope to see you again in the near future. Yoko

“ Half day city tour of Tokyo and Ashikaga national park ”

Yoko-san was a very good guide. She planned our tour so that we could cover the possible places with the limited time available. She even booked our train tickets in advance before our arrival. The only disappointment was that the flowers were not in full bloom at the Ashikaga flower park .

Yoko:
Thank you so much for posting a great review, Srinivasan-san. I was sorry that it was too early for the best season for the wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park. Usually around the end of April would be best season for the wisteria, but this year the wisteria started blooming later than usual, due to the unstable weather in early April. However I enjoyed the day with you and your friends. All of you are so nice and warm. Thank you so much for your cooperation. I hope you'll come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you again. Yoko

I hope you enjoyed your journey in Japan. I hope you'll come back to Japan in the near future and would like to see you then. Please take good care of yourself. Yoko

“ Two Tours with Yoko ”

My husband and I were only in Tokyo, Japan for about a week, so I decided to hire Yoko as our tour guide for 2 of the 7 days we were there. My husband was skeptical at first and felt we could navigate our points of interest on our own. Either way, I booked the “One day Tokyo” and “One day trip to Kamakura” tours and we thoroughly enjoyed both. With both tours we had the opportunity to see many shrines and temples (including Meiji Shrine, Sensoji Temple, Hokoku-ji temple and others) of which Yoko was very knowledgeable and able to share key historical information. Being able to drink Matcha tea with Japanese sweets while overlooking a bamboo garden at Hokoku-ji was the highlight of our trip to Kamakura (seeing the Great Buddha was awesome too). She even directed us to Kiddy Land in Tokyo where I had the chance to shop for Hello Kitty and Sailor Moon souvenirs! She recommended two great restaurants for our lunch breaks during each tour. When the first restaurant option during tour #1 ended up having a long line, she offered an alternative which was off the beaten path yet perfect for what my husband was hoping for (less mainstream and more what locals would experience). My only negative was the bus ride we had to take between destination in Kamakura, as they were quite cramped and rocky which triggered my motion sickness. This was in no way Yoko’s fault, obviously, and I was able to recover quickly once off the bus. In all, I was grateful for the instructions on how to get around using the Metro/JR lines, information regarding other points of interest not on the tour and her overall positive and friendly demeanor. She speaks English very well and we had no major communication barriers during our time together. It was like a friend was showing us around Tokyo and not a stuffy tour guide. My husband even admitted I was right (of course) to book the tours with Yoko and that he could not have imagined exploring Tokyo and Kamakura without her. We were genuinely sad to have to part from her after our second tour. If you are like me and like to stroll and browse in one location without feeling a time crunch, I would recommend scheduling just 2 or three destination during the One day in Tokyo tour. My husband is not such a person so bouncing to 4 different locations was fine for him. Sorry for such a long review :)

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your warm and thoughtful review, Shavonne. It's very nice meeting both of you. You are such nice people, so sharing the time with you was so enjoyable and memorable for me. I was sorry for the bus ride at Kamakura - Hokoku-ji temple is a very popular place for tourists, so almost always the bus for the temple is packed with many people. However I'm glad to hear that the time in Hokoku-ji temple seemed to be a good memory for you. I enjoyed both tours in Tokyo and Kamakura with you. To tell the truth, I didn't want to say goodbye after the second trip and after that I miss both of you. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. As you know, there are many attractive tourist destinations in Japan. I hope I can see both of you again in the near future. Thank you again and please take care of yourselves. Yoko
