“ Amazing Day in Tochigi ”

We had an amazing time in Tochigi with Yoko (her hometown). My husband and I were in Tokyo for our honeymoon and when I think of Tokyo in the winter, I think of one thing: strawberry season! And having done a homestay in Tochigi during my student years, I thought, “What better way to introduce Japanese strawberries to my husband than to bring him to a farm for all you can eat strawberry picking—and not just any strawberries, but the ultra rare Tochihime, known to be the sweetest and juiciest strawberry in Japan... so delicate that it can only be eaten in Tochigi itself?” However, it has been some time since my homestay so I found Yoko-san online who helped make it all happen (Big plus: Tochigi is her hometown)! It was a great escape from Tokyo for a day and totally worth it as we were also... read more

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Felicity-san! I had a lovely time with you and your husband in Tochigi. Thank you for having me as your guide. I was happy to have helped you explore Tochigi on the tour as a part of your honeymoon. Tochigi is my home prefecture, but actually the places we visited were new to me. Furthermore I wasn't aware of Tochihime though Tochigi is famous for strawberries production. I learned from you a lot about my home prefecture! I'm grateful that you gave me such a great opportunity. I was impressed with your deep knowledge about Japan and culture, also your Japanese speaking skills. I hope you had a lovely honeymoon in Japan. I hope I can see you again in the near future. I hope both of you share a long and happy life together.

“ Kamakura highlights ”

We had such a lovely day with Yoko. She met us at the Yokohama Cruise Terminal and took us by train to Kamakura. She was very knowledgable and taught us alot about Japanese customs. We got to see alot more than we had planned which was a nice surprise. We had a lovely traditional Japanese lunch and we got back to the ship with time to spare so this took any stress away. Yoko went out of her way to accomodate our wishes.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for such a lovely review, Nicola! I had a lovely day with both of you in Kamakura. It was a very beautiful day and I was very glad that we could go to more places than we had planned. Thank you so much for your cooperation. Talking with you was fun and interesting, and I was pleased to have some similarities with you. I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope both of you come to Tokyo again in the near future and I can see you then.

“ Beautiful day in Japan with Yoko ”

Our party of four adults were privileged to spend the day with Yoko. This was our first time to visit Japan and we set up a tour through TripleLights to get an understanding of the city of Tokyo and to help us navigate the subway system. We couldn’t have been more pleased with Yoko’s wonderful assistance in caring for us as we traveled all over Tokyo with her expert guidance. Her knowledge of the Japanese culture and history was invaluable to getting to know the people of Japan. I highly recommend starting you trip this and way with Yoko as your guide.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your lovely review, Robert! I had a lovely day with all of you. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. That was a beautiful day after rainy days, I was pleased to help you explore Tokyo. We laughed a lot and I learned something new from you, which was memorable for me. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I hope you have enjoyed staying in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again and see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey.
