“ Great day! ”

We've had a great day in Tokyo with Fumiko-san. She's a real star in making the many things we had on our mind to do ( in just one day ) reality, by preparing our route and timeschedule meticulously, buying tickets in advance and contacting all the shops and the restaurant on forehand. So in one day she showed us the Senso-Ji area, Kappabashi -dori including a foodsamplemaking workshop, brought us to a fine eel restaurant near the river for a relaxing lunch, let us do shopping for tenugui in pre-selected shops, and also made sure that we were on time to see the Japanese Gallery of the National Museum. She knows a lot about the history of Japan, and Buddhism and Shinto traditions and told us lot of interesting facts during the day. On top of that she can give you a nice insight in... read more

“ Fantastic! ”

Fumiko was amazing! Her communication prior to our visit was very thorough. She planned the day that catered for our needs. She really took into consideration my children's ages and what they would like and they did enjoy the day. She also helped us with other issues regarding the rest of our trip which was very useful. Were very happy to have her as a guide.

“ The older side of Tokyo. ”

My daughter and I had a great day with Fumiko. We loved the wind chimes at Ikegami honmonji Temple. We modelled kimonos and tried our hand at origami. We got to see another side of Tokyo one without the flashing neon lights maybe a more local view of everyday life in Tokyo. I would highly recommend Fumiko.

Fumiko:

Dear Lisa, Thank you very much for your review. I am very glad to hear that you liked the tour. When I first received your request that you wanted to visit an unbeaten place where many people did not visit and your daughter could enjoy, it was a bit difficult for me to make a plan. But, you and Stela tried to enjoy everything , which made me very happy. I will recommend foreign visitors take a tour around Ota city like you. I pray for you and Stela good health and success in the future. and I hope to see you someday again. Take care of yoursef. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Fumiko
