What to Expect

What do you do in Tokyo? I show you both traditional and modern sightseeing spots, and would have you experience the local life in Tokyo. First, we look around in a traditional Japanese garden, Hamarikyu Garden, where we can enjoy green tea. Next, head for the old downtown by river sightseeing boat. We tour an oldest temple in Tokyo, Asakusa-Kannon Temple, stroll classic shopping streets and have authentic Japanese food for lunch. Finally, visit the largest shinto shrine in Tokyo, Meiji-jingu Shrine and walk down modern shopping streets. And also, you can experience Tokyo itself, with fabulous shops, excellent train systems, busy streets and kind people. At the end of the day, you will be much more familiar with the fascinating city!

“ An excellent guide for Tokyo. ”

Masako did an excellent job guiding our group of 10 seniors to the major sites of Tokyo. She skillfully guided us through the complex subways and streets of the city while making sure that all of us had our questions answered and needs met. All 10 of us highly recommend her as a choice for your guide.We thank her for a great experience.😀

MASAKO:

Hello Steven, Thank you very much for the two days and such a kind comment. I appreciate it. You are all friendly and cheerful, which helped me a lot. I thank you for your cooperation and patience. Please enjoy Kyoto and the cruise tour! Best regards, Masako

“ very intersting day ”

We had a 5 hour tour with Masako which we customized ourselves but Masako did all the organizing and travel arrangements. We went to a Japanese Tea Ceremony which was amazing in a small village called Yanaka. We were given lots of history/information from Masako during the tour. Masako was a lovely and funny lady and we enjoyed her company very much.

MASAKO:

Hello Perry, Thank you very much for the kind comment. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. You must have been very disappointed because the rugby game you were supposed to watch was called off due to the typhoon. However, I am most grateful to you that you listened to my explanation eagerly. I was happy to accompany you. Give my regards to Sarah and your cultivated sons. Best regards, Masako

“ Day in Tokyo ”

Masako was very kind to accommodate our last minute request for a tour of Tokyo. It was a cold and rainy day but nevertheless we enjoyed all the places that we visited. Tokyo is a beautiful city and Masako did a great job in representing it. We highly recommend her. Thank you, Masako! We hope to come back and visit again.

MASAKO:

Hi Amor, Thank you very much for the kind comment. I do appreciate it. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. So did I very much. You, your husband and sister are warmhearted and cooperative. I was impressed with deep consideration for me. I would like to meet you again when you return to Japan. May you be very happy! Masako

“ Exceptional service ”

We cannot thank Masako enough. She has been exceptional from our first contact. From organising a customised tour, ordering a much wanted Japanese book through assisting us about the damage from Typhoon Jebi. Nothing has been too much trouble. Her knowledge of Japanese history is comprehensive. We have booked Masako for a second day and are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us.

MASAKO:

Hello Debbie, Thank you very much for the lovely words. Thanks to your cooperation and patience, the tour was easy to operate. It helped me a lot. I also enjoyed nice chatting with you. I am impressed both of you are so talented. Looking forward to showing you around Kamakura today. Masako
