“ Best tour guide ever ! ”

Fumiko went above and beyond my expectations as a tour guide she went out of her way to make sure all our questions and wants were met. Fumiko is also attentive to detail and always make sure we were happy and changed the itinerary to fit the time we have. In 2 days we managed to visit harajuku, shibuya, tokyo ward east gardens, asakusa (promptly booked an appointment for kimono experience the very next day), ueno and akihabara. Highly recommend Fumoko!!!!!


Dear Trang, Thank you very much for your review. I had a very good time with you and your family members. What a nice family! I am very glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. I hope you will enjoy traveling Osaka and other places in Japan. Also I hope for good health and hapiness of all of you. See you someday again! Best regards, Fumiko

“ One day tour of Nikko ”

I had a good day touring Nikko with Fumiko! She was organized, very timely and informative of Japanese culture/history as well as of the sites we visited in Nikko. She went out of her way to ensure that my day trip was fun. I really appreciated her flexibility on the day of the tour as well. Thank you Fumiko for showing me a great time in Nikko and for ensuring I was comfortable from beginning to end of the tour. As a solo traveler my number one concern is safety when traveling outside of a major city and Fumiko ensured I felt as ease from beginning to end. Thanks for a great day in Nikko Fumiko!


Dear Reenu, Thank you very much for your review. I am very glad to hear that . You took many pictures of beautiful scenery in Nikko. Those pictures were amazing! I think you are so nice photographer. Now I want to start learing how to take good pictures. Thank you very much. I hope you will continue to take many beautiful pictures while working. Please take care of yourself. Best regards, Fumiko

She was great in communication and went beyond her ways to help us find super Mario toys for our nephew. We were very fortunate to have Fumiko as our tour guide. Thank you for your great service, Funiko!


Dear Anna, Thank you very much for your review. I had a very good time with your group. All of your members were cheerful and enjoyable, so I was very glad to talk with you and your members.

“ 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


Dear Ariane, Thank you very much for your review. It was a great pleasure for me to be with you and your daughter. I also learned about things Japanese and about your country. You had reserched and prepared well about this trip in advance, and were energetic to enjoy Japanese culture. I also enjoyed very much. I hope good health and success of all your family members and also hope to see you again sometime in the future. Best regards. Fumiko
