“ An Amazing Day in Tokyo ”

We had an amazing day with Fumiko in Tokyo. She is very good English speaking guide with in depth knowledge. We traveled with her in public transport and it was a very good experience. She took us around Tokyo smartly within the available time. The Kabuki show was excellent. Thanks to her for making advance arrangements for the same as well as travel. The day was memorable. Will strongly recommend her services for moving around Tokyo.

Fumiko:

Dear Abhay, Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I felt very sorry that it had taken a very long time to return to your Hotel at Narita. You and your wife must have been very tired I am sorry. There are more things to see in Tokyo. Please come back again. Next time, I will show you different places with better transportation❣️Please take care of yourself. Say hallo to your wife & son. I will never forget you and shared experience. Best regards, Fumiko

“ An excellent tour guide! ”

We had an absolutely fantastic day tour with Fumiko. She was amazing. We never would have been able to see so much of Tokyo without her. She helped us so much with fine tuning our itinerary and made great recommendations for places to stop for food and snacks. We really appreciated all of her insight and really enjoyed our time with her! She went above and beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend planning a tour with Fumiko!!

Fumiko:

Dear Sherri, Thank you very much for your review! I had also whale of a time with you and your friends. You three were energetic and pleasant . I am really looking forword to seeing you in 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. I think you are very busy now. Please take care of yourself. Please say hello to Linda and Heidi. See you next year! Best regards. Fumiko

“ Excellent family tour in Tokyo ”

We had a fantastic tour with Fumiko and would recommend her as a guide for anyone looking for an experienced and personable guide in Tokyo. We asked for a tour that was a mix of old and new Tokyo and that was varied enough to keep our young family interested (kids aged 8, 6 and 4 years old) and she planned it perfectly. We visited Meiji shrine and she taught us how to follow the rituals and pray which the we all really enjoyed - leaving our prayer board hanging in this beautiful shrine was very special. It is super hot in August so Fumiko scheduled a stop for ice cream at a lovely quiet spot and whilst there taught the children some origami and then joined them throwing their newly made paper planes which they loved. It was so nice of her to get involved with the children and they real... read more

Fumiko:

Dear Alison, Thank you very much for your review. I also had a very good time with your family. Your children were so lovely and behaved well. Before starting the tour, I was a little bit worried, whether such small children could enjoy Meiji Jingu Shrine and very crowded Takeshita Street. They might have got tired as we had to walk a lot. I dinnot need to worry about it. They walked a lot and all your family members eojoyed everything in the tour such as beautiful senery of the forest of Meiji Jingu Shrine as well as Shirine itself, Origami, 100 yen shop, cupsel toys and raimbow sandwiches, which made me very happy! I hope you will enjoy the rest stay in Japan and see you again some day in the future. Best regards, Fumiko

“ Getting around without getting lost! ”

Wow! Japan can be a challenge to say the least. I don't know how we would have navigated the area we were in without Fumikos help. Just getting to Tokyo from our hotel was a challenge, but once we got there, Fumiko was a life saver. If your traveling with a family, I would highly recommend a tour guide, as the energy needed to get around can be depleted quickly. Having questions in advance for your tour guide will go a long way in making your adventure worthwhile. Learn some basic phrases and ask as many questions as you can at the airport info desk.

Fumiko:

Dear Rick, Thank you for your review. I had a very nice time with your family. I hope you will enjoy the rest of stay in Japan. Please take care of yourself. Best regards, Fumiko

I enjoyed very much seeing your interesting photos. I pray for your good health and happiness and hope to see you again someday in the future. Best regards, Fumiko
