“ 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.

“ Fantastic Day In Tokyo ”

Whatever I say here about our experience with Yoko in Tokyo will not do her justice. She is a wonderful guide and we enjoyed every minute. She was extremely attentive and wasnt even bothered by our 10 year olds attack with questions. She was very knowledgable about the areas, moreso than we expected. Although she is listed here as "licensed" in English - We would have classifiied her as fluent. We had absolutely no trouble communicating. Our only regret is we would have like to have her for the entire trip. She is a pleasure to tour with and will make your trip special. Do not hesitate to lock her in ASAP as she is (and deserves to be) in high demand. Thank you, Yoko, for making our visit extra special.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a great review, VIRGIL! I'm glad to hear that the tour might have met your expectations. I also had a lovely time with all of you. Though some of the questions from your son were tough for me to answer, but definitely interesting and fun! Both of your sons are smart and lovely. All of you are very nice and warm, so I felt as if I had spent a time with my good friends. There are a lot of beautiful places in Japan. I hope all of you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then.

“ Japanese gardens and kaiseki ryori lunch ”

I would highly recommend Yoko as a guide. Her understanding of English is very good and she is also very considerate. She paid careful attention to my particular interests and needs in planning our day’s tour well in advance, listening thoughtfully and patiently answering questions that made it easy to relax and enjoy time at each location we visited without feeling rushed. As well as information, she offered insight into aspects of Japanese culture, tradition and way of life in context that helped deepen my understanding and appreciation. She is also a charming and delightful companion with a great sense of humour. It felt more like making and talking with a friend, reflecting the true nature of hospitality for a foreign tourist.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a warm and fabulous review, Philip-san! I'm glad to hear that the tour met your expectations. The tour was a little unusual for me, so I was wondering if I could do a good tour for you, but I also enjoyed the tour as if I had spent a lovely time with my friend. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Talking with you was really interesting and fun to me. Your deep knowledge about Japan impressed me a lot. I had a lovely time strolling the gardens with you. Thank you so much for giving me such a great opportunity. I hope you have a lovely journey in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again in the near future and hope to see you then. Watashi mo tanoshikatta desu! Arigatou gozaimashita.

“ Yoko is an incredible tour guide and wonderful person. ”

My wife and I not only feel that we got to see all of the sites of Tokyo that we had requested and more but that we also make an exceptional new friend. Yoko is such a wonderful guide and person. Over the years, we have had the good fortune of traveling to many wonderful parts of the world and try to book at least one day with a guide to see more of an area and make sure we get to see the most important sites of the area we’re visiting. We both felt that Yoko was the BEST guide we have ever experienced. Her English is exceptional and she is such a pleasant person to spend time with. We really hated to see our time together come to an end. If you are visiting Tokyo for the 1st time, we highly recommend at least one day with Yoko. The other advantage is that after time with her, the ma... read more

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a lovely review, Lee! I'm glad to hear that both of you enjoyed exploring Tokyo with me. I also had a lovely day with both of you. You're very nice and warm, so I felt as if I had spent time with my friends. Talking with both of you was interesting and fun. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I was pleased that we enjoyed the beautiful cherry blossoms in Rikugien gardens. I hope you enjoy exploring Kyoto. I hope you come to Tokyo again someday in the near future and hope to see you then. Thank you again and please take care.
