“ Short visit to catch a little of Tokyo between flights from Bangkok to Newark. ”

Chiaki was very gracious and flexible and made our short time valuable. Enjoyed the market, walks and the lunch.

“ Amazing time and a perfect guide ”

Arigato Chiaki-san! We had such an amazing time these two days with Chiaki-san. She was a perfect guide and we loved spending time with here and enjoyed the various locations that she took us to. She provided us with a detailed schedule and also gave us perfect directions to get from Haneda airport to our Asakusa hotel. She knew all the in-and-outs of the public transport to shortcuts to costs. She was always on time and ensured we spent ample time at our sightseeing spots. At the same time, she was cognizant of the time. Both our daughters immediately gelled with her. She was caring and she became part of our family in those two days. She also took us to various food spots and it was all delicious. It was a great experience and we are so glad and honored that we met Chiaki-san and spent t... read more


Arigato Mahesh-san, for your warm and detailed review! I’m honored and happy that I was selected to be your guide and family member in Japan. Your two girls are lovely just like their names “shining stars” and I enjoyed being with them. I miss all of you! Arigato for the happy two days. I'm looking for the next opportunity to see you again!

“ Wonderful tour! I would give 6 stars if I could! ”

This was our first trip to Tokyo and my wife and I wanted one of our first experiences to be one where we could ease into the new setting. We booked a brief tour with Chiaki due to her very favorable ratings and we were absolutely not disappointed! She was very kind, patient, and informative as she took us around the Tsukiji Outer Market and Ginza areas, often pausing for my wife and I to enjoy things to eat, take pictures, and take in the sights. We never felt rushed and we experienced quite a lot in the few hours we spent together. She was also very informative and provided some historical commentary where it was appropriate. Furthermore, Chiaki was incredibly helpful in giving us useful practical tips regarding everyday things like subway/bus travel, payment methods, and etiquette. Our ... read more


Thank you Edward for your excellent review! I was really happy guiding such a brilliant and nice couple like you. We had great time and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope you and Anh are having wonderful and relaxing time in Japan before going back home to your busy days. Thank you again and take care!
