“ 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.

“ Sweet and helpful ”

Fumiko was our sweet and helpful guide for a full day and took us to the main attractions of Tokyo. Though not planned yet she made quick arrangements for our family to take pics in traditional Japanese attire. She even made prior bookings for our lunch at an Indian restaurant in the Asakusa area. Our full family wants to thank her for guiding us well .

“ Fumiko makes the difference between walking in Tokyo and visiting Tokyo ”

We visited the gardens and the surroundings of the imperial palace. It was a great afternoon and an enjoyable time. Fumiko caters to her "customers" by adapting the schedule and giving information without overloading. A great afternoon
