Michiko is a lot of fun and was great at showing us an area of Yokohama that not many Tokyo tourists visit, which is a shame. We went to four really fun izakayas and standing bars and tasted some delicious food and local drinks. We highly recommend Michiko’s tours.
Thank you very much for giving me an excellent review. That was the first time for me to provide the izakaya tour in Noge town in Yokohama. I reserched and checked the foods and drinks by myself before your tour, and I got to know Noge town is the heaven for drinkers. I will make a new drinking tour of the Yokohama version. I myself enjoyed sharing the time with you. Thank you again, David and Max.
It was a pleasure to have hired Michiko as a guide for our first visit to Tokyo. She has a very intimate knowledge of all the important sites and she makes discovering Tokyo fun and Intresting. She is able to speak English very well and knows great places for lunch and entertainment. Highly recommended.
Dear Robin, Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. I am glad to know you enjoyed my tour. You still have two more days in Tokyo, please enjoy the city. I hope you will come back with your family in the near future. I am sure they will like Japanese pop-culture or nature in the countryside. Michiko
I was looking for a “non-conventional” private tour in Tokyo. To my luck, Michiko was available on the day. I was impressed with the planning. Michiko is highly knowledgeable and friendly.
Dear Olga, Thank you very much for your time to write a nice review to me.I also enjoyed the time sharing with you.The good thing is we can visit the last opened day of the last year of Koishikawa-Korakuen Garden. If you have any chances to come to Japan, just contact me. I have many ideas of tours or a one-day Hokone trip with soaking onsen as you asked. May you have an amazing year! Michiko
We booked a full day with Michiko. She was very flexible, knowledgeable and accommodated our list of must sees. Importantly, she adjusted to our pace which was probably a little slower than hers. She also helped us activate our Rail passes and taught us how to navigate the Tokyo metro system, so that we could be more self sufficient for the rest of our time. I highly recommend her if you need a guide in the city.
Dear Sona, I'm happy to hear from you again, which means you safely got back to your home. How was the trip to Kyoto? I'm sure you enjoyed Kyoto, as well. Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. Warm regards Michiko
Michiko did a great job of rolling up our list of remaining Tokyo sites before we head to the airport. She expertly wound us through the metro to the major sites while filling us in on the culture of Japan, including family life and fun facts. Thanks!!
Dear Mark, Thank you for sending me the excellent review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour with me .I also enjoyed sharing time with you, especially our yakiniku lunch time in one of the skyscrepers in Shiodome.I was relieved that Evy can have gluten free meal there and she even enjoyed ice candy. I hope your comfortable and safety flight! All the best Michiko
