“ Hiromi took us to all the places we wanted to go - she is great! ”

A full day in Tokyo can be exhausting - we knew that and it actually proved to be a bit more than we had thought. Hiromi, however, was very well organized and included all our wishes as best she could, even though it meant rushing through the streets of Tokyo to get everywhere in time. We started off at our hotel and headed to Akihabara to visit a cat cafe that we had asked her to take us to - it was an absolutely lovely experience that all three of us enjoyed a lot! Then we were off to Ueno park, a bit rushed, then to Asakusa, again in a bit of a rush through massive crowds. The last bit was actually the best - a river cruise to Odaiba, a little over an hour of relaxation aboard a very modern boat - the Hotaluna - with a terrace to enjoy stunning views of Tokyo and take fantastic picture... read more

“ Good tour but rushed ”

Our tour guide was very nice and polite. We booked this garden tour, but her knowledge was limited about the garden. We also felt very rushed and did not have enough time in this absolutely beautiful place. From the description I thought the tea ceremony was in a tea house in the garden, but it was in Ginza, an area away from the gardens. The tea ceremony was in a very nice hotel, the setting was authentic and I felt like we had a very good representation of a tea ceremony. We finished early so Hiromi was kind enough to walk us to Ginza shopping area and left us there to explore.

Hiromi:

Thank you very much for writing the review. I also felt uncomfortable to rush you and your friends at the Japanese Garden. But since tea ceremony place was booked at certain time, there was time limitation...Yes, in this tour we visit Japanese Garden & tea ceremony, 2 places. Yes, I don't know about the garden 100 %. So that makes this garden more interesting to me. There is always new discovery. Your feed back encourages me to improve my tour quality. Thank you very much, I appreciate :) Have a wonderful days in Japan! And since your group loved taking pictures a lots, hope you had many lovely picture of Japan.

“ The right way to start off a vacation ”

Meeting with Hiromi the first day of our trip was the perfect way to start off our vacation. She showed us the ins and outs of the subway system, taught us about some of Japan’s rich culture and history, and showed us some great gardens and views of the city. We would definitely recommend having Hiromi as a part of your first introduction to Tokyo. Best, Alex & Kayla

Hiromi:

Thank you very much for writing review. It was very nice meeting pleasant couple such as you and Kayla. I especially liked how Kayla tried to get in to tea room with her boots. That was cute. I feel happy that I can join in your memory in Japan. Thank you :)

“ Koishikawa Korakuen Garden and Tea House Tour ”

Tour was very good! Hiromi met us at our hotel and guided us to the Koishikawa Korakuen gardens 1st...cherry trees were not yet in bloom but the garden was still nice to walk around... we then went to another garden for the tea ceremony which was amazing! I am glad Hiromi was with us to translate at the tea ceremony... I would recommend Hiromi as a tour guide!

Hiromi:

Thank you very much for writing review. It was very nice meeting you and your cousin. Customer's review encourage me a lot. I was surprised many wedding was going on at the garden of tea ceremony. I'm happy that I could share the moment with two of you. Thank you!
