“ Excellent Guide ”

Yoko is a friendly and soft spoken person, She has a happy disposition. We are very happy and thankful that she allowed us to changed our Itinerary from Kamakura to Ashikaga 2 days prior our trip. And we did not regret it! Ashikaga is a beautiful place. Very relaxing and peaceful. We love both Ashikaga Gakko and Ashikaga Flower Park. Yoko’s english is also very good. We also learned that it is her first time to have a tour on Ashikaga that is not on a peak season and we are her first client for her Nikko tour! We are overwhelmed! Both tours are well planned and organized. I would highly recommend you to hire Yoko’s services if you have plan to go to Nikko, I can guarantee that you will be in good hands! I will surely recommend you to my friends and relatives! Thank You for taking ca... read more

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review, Tessa! I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tours with me. Ashikaga is my hometown, so actually I was happy to hear that you would like to go to Ashikaga. Though the wisterias were over, we enjoyed a lot of beautiful flowers, especially roses are very beautiful. Taking my clients to Nikko was my first time, so honestly I was wondering if you could enjoy Nikko during our tour, but I was glad that everything went well. Thank you for all of your cooperation. Talking with you and your friends were really interesting and inspiring to me. I'm grateful for your kindness. Thank you again for having me as your guide. I hope I can see you again in the near future.

“ So happy we found Yoko! ”

We booked Yoko for a half day tour our first day in Tokyo and so glad we found her. She picked us up in the lobby of our hotel right on time and took us everywhere we asked her to see. We had a fantastic sushi lunch and really enjoyed her company. Yoko speaks wonderful English and taught us so much about Tokyo and Japan.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting a wonderful review, Steven! I'm glad to hear both of you enjoyed the tour with me. I also had a lovely time with both of you. Talking with you was fun and interesting. I'm grateful for your kindness. We've had much colder days than usual, so I hope you haven't caught cold. I hope you have lovely journey in Japan. I hope I can see you again in the near future.
