“ Garden Tour and Tea Ceremony ”

Hiromi was a good guide; she was friendly and happily answered my many questions and helped us with a Suica card mix-up. I was a little disappointed that our tea ceremony was in a hotel rather than a real tea house, however we booked our tour only a week ahead of time and Hiromi said that March is a busy month, so I understand that perhaps it wasn't possible. And, after the official tea ceremony was over, the host offered to let my brother and I make the tea ourselves, which was wicked cool (!) and an opportunity that I don't think would have been presented in a real tea house, so that made up for my initial disappointment. Thank you for a good tour!

“ Very informative ”

Hiromi was great. She showed us around, gave great information about the 5 different stops, and answered any questions we had. She was great giving recommendations for our future trip to another city. At the end of our tour, we told her we were having trouble finding local food, she directed us to the best fish we had every experienced. Thank you Hiromi!


Dear Brittney Thank you very much for writing the review. It was my pleasure to show you around Tokyo. Since it was your first time in Japan, I tried to show you as many places as I can. You and your husband are very pleasant people to be with. Please come to Japan with your baby next time! Thank you!

“ We had a fantastic first day in Tokyo ”

We had a fantastic day with Mrs Hiromi. She showed typical Japanse traditions; the art of bonsai and a traditional tea ceremony. This trip exceeded our high expectations. Apart from this, Mrs Hiromi is a very kind and patient person who helped us to understand Tokyo on our first day. Thank you!


Dear Eelco I'm very happy to know you enjoyed the tour. It was customized tour 'Experience Bonsai and Tea ceremony'. I myself enjoyed seeing you and your girlfriend creating Bonsai. It was fun being with two of you. Thank you very much! Please tell your girlfriend (sorry, that I can't spell her name) to enjoy Tokyo Marathone tomorrow!

“ Taking in Tokyo ”

Hiromi enabled us to take in a cross section of Tokyo’s key tourist sights in one day. It was a challenging umbrella day - we couldn’t see the tops of the high buildings due to mist. Hiromi used the subway and JR rail to move us efficiently between widely spaced locations. Hiromi has good English, a good knowledge of Tokyo, is friendly and has a quietly informative manner. It was a fun memorable day thanks.


Dear Mike & Brenda Thank you very much for writing the review. It was rainy and bit cold day. I hope you didn't catch a cold. It was interesting day for me as well. Same sights but different views in spring rain. Even I go same sights each moment are different. The moment is treasure for me. I appreciate your kindness during the tour! Thank you! :)

“ 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.


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!! :)
