“ Tailored tour or Tokyo ”

Having been given options of what sort of things we could do in Tokyo, we chose to see as much as possible. Hiromi designed our itinerary and led us around some amazing sights. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and took us around on the Tokyo Metro from sight to sight. There were lots of highlights of the day but I particularly enjoyed the Japanese Gardens (my daughter loved the shops). Having spent our first day in Tokyo with Hiromi, we felt much more confident in finding our own way around for the rest of the week.

Hiromi:

Dear Freya Thank you very much for writing review. I'm so happy to know you enjoyed the tour. I enjoyed being with you and your family very much. I also enjoyed talking with your daughter Jessica(慈恵詩華), she is very kind, polite, pretty like fairy. I hope she found many lovely things in Japan for her birthday! Thank you very much for being my guest. Come Japan again!! :)

“ Tea ceremony and walk ”

Hiromi was a wonderful guide, patient with our kids and very well informed.

Hiromi:

Dear Kevin Thank you very much for writing the review. I had very good time with your family. Your children was smart & open minded. I can't forget when your daughter, Natalie (sorry, if I was wrong with her name) 's smile saying 'Oishii (tasty)' when she drunk green tea. I always wish your family's happiness :)

“ Wounderful trip and great experience ”

I spent a lovely morning with Hiromi in Kagurazaka and Yanaka Ginza. She made our trip very interesting and she also made it possible for me to see a real tea ceremony with a master. It was so interesting and entertaining! I am truly happy with my choice and I really recommend Hiromi as a guide for your stay in Tokyo.

Hiromi:

Dear Erika Thank you very much for writing review. It was very nice meeting with you. Most tea houses close on Dec. 30th. So we visited actual tea master's training house.Tea master was a cheerful man. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the experience. It was interesting experience for me as well. I hope to join a tea ceremony with you wearing your beautiful Kimono next time!

“ Fantastic Solo Tour in Tokyo ”

I could not be happier with Hiromi as a tour guide and educator about Tokyo and Japan. I had a one day tour on my first trip to Japan/Tokyo, and she helped me plan sights to go and visit, was deeply informative, open to my questions, flexible when I wanted to see an additional garden, and generally a delight to spend a day with. She was professional to the highest degree, communicating promptly, arriving early, helping me in all places I was a bit lost but never pushing or judging. Her knowledge is deep and accessible, and she really tailored the tour to my interests and questions. Highly recommend!

Hiromi:

Dear Adam Thank you very much for writing the review. Yes, we visited a lot of places and that was fun! I'm very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. I had very good time, too. Thank you very much for being my guest. The review like this really encourages me. Hope see you again someday. There are many more places to see in Tokyo. Thank you :)

“ Tea ceremony ”

Hiromi found a place that would do traditional tea ceremony on a Sunday which apparently is unusual in Tokyo. Hiromi and the lady who conducted the tea ceremony were both very knowledgable and interesting. Hiromi also took us to a small garden that was very peaceful and pretty yet still in the middle of Tokyo. The day was very enjoyable.

Hiromi:

Dear Carol Thank you very much for writing review. Yes, the tea house was small but uniquely created in the middle Ginza (upmarket shopping district). I hope you enjoyed experiencing making your own tea as much as watching tea master's tea making procedure. It was a great pleasure to meet you and your husband! Thank you very much.
