“ 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

“ Busy Tokyo ”

Fumiko is a wonderful ambassador for Japan. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the sights and customs of Tokyo, she showed incredible kindness to help us with regard to some lost luggage. I am forever grateful for meeting Fumiko.

Fumiko:

Dear David, Thank you for your review. I am very happy that your luggage has found and you could return your home country with it! Although Tokyo was very busy especially during the golden week, I had a very good time with you and Atisha. Please visit Japan again. Tokyo is not always such crowded. I hope you and your family's happiness and good health. See you again someday ! Best regards, Fumiko

“ Wonderful day with Fumiko ”

We had a fabulous day with Fumiko, who guided us around the cultural sights of Tokyo. She carefully arranged an itinerary to cover the sights I requested including the Imoerial Palace gardens, Meiji shrine and Sensoji Temple, Fumiko was full of information regarding the history of Japan and kept my 3 boys interested, even though temples and shrines are not exactly their cup of tea. Fumiko found a couple of shops for them to keep us going, and kept our tummies full at a delicious udon noodle restaurant . She answered all our questions and also gave us a little insight into living in Japan. We had a really great day and this tour was the best way to begin out time in Tokyo. Thank you Fumiko !

Fumiko:

Dear Kathy, Thank you very much for your review. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. II also enjoyed with your family members. Your sons were so well- behaved and cute. I ho;e you will have a nice experience in the rest of your stay in Japan and see you again someday in the future. Fumiko

“ Kind, Knowlegable Guide ”

We spent two lovely days with Fumiko visiting sites old and new, shopping in streets funky and elegant, and enjoying the beauty and excitement of Tokyo. Fumiko is thoughtful, kind and well prepared. We felt like we were spending two days with a friend rather than just a guide.

Fumiko:

Dear Judy, Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour! I also enjoyed very much with you and your hsusband. I am also very glad to hear that you felt like you were with a friend. I also felt like we have known each other I since olden time. Maybe because you booked the tour last year and I was very looking forward to seeing you and your husband. I hope you and your husband will enjoy the contiuning tour, too. I pray for your good health and happiness and want to see you again someday in the future. Best regards, Fumiko
