What to Expect

A half day tour in Tokyo for a family who has small children or teenagers. For your children’s knowledge, we will visit a shrine, Meiji Jingu Shrine or a temple, Asakusa Sensoji Temple. I will explain the overview of Japanese history. Then, we will visit one of the activities. These activities provide creative, exploratory, and social opportunities so that children can extend themselves in areas that are informal, unusual, and fun.

“ Mari is the Tokyo guide ever!! ”

Mari was an amazing guide!! We had the best time touring Tokyo with her. She taught us so many things. We got to visit Temples and Shrines and we loved touring the market with her. Mari made everything a fun adventure. She taught us how to use the subway, showed us how to make Wasabi, and even made sure we arrived at the Meiji Shrine in time to see a beautiful wedding. We had a proper Japanese lunch, seated on the floor with our shoes off. Those are just a few fun things we did. She spent two days with us teaching us many things about the Japanese culture and history--she is very knowledgeable about Japanese history, art and culture. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide. We are so thankful for Mari!!!

Mari:

Thank you very much for taking your time to write an excellent review. I’m really glad to receive such a compliment review. It encourage me a lot as a tour guide. I still remember our joyful time we spent together for two days. Jenna is so beautiful and smart. I am sure she will have a bright future. Thank you again.

“ A great afternoon in Tokyo ”

Everything about our experience with Mari was perfect. She was quick to respond to all my questions and needs prior to our trip. She sent a wonderful message on our arrival to a Tokyo. The day of the trip, she met us with a small handout about the history/meaning of sushi making and the tea ceremony. Both classes were perfect for our group. Fun, informative and delicious! The locations she picked for both classes were great. The people at each made us feel so welcome. She helped make one of our family member’s experience (elderly) much simpler as well. Best, was how personal she was with us as we walked through Tokyo. She chatted and gave us information about the train system and other recommendations to enjoy our stay in Japan. Highly recommend this half day trip!!

Mari:

Thank you very much for your excellent review. It encouraged me as a tour guide. It was my great pleasure to guide your family. All members of your family are so nice and smart. I am glad that you carefully listened to my explanation. You are a very thoughtful person. That’s why you liked the tea ceremony which culture has a deep history. Please enjoy the rest of your journey in Tokyo. Thank you again.

“ Kids-friendly Tokyo tour ”

We had the most wonderful time with Ms. Mari. Our group had 4 kids under the age of 12. Ms. Mari tailored the itinerary to make sure all activities are kids friendly but at the same time, enjoyable for the adults. Ms. Mari comes well prepared every day with background history to all the places we visited. She patiently explained to our kids and showed maps and related materials to them throughout the tour. She is the most amazing, animated, and responsible tour guide. Thank you, Ms. Mari! Because of you, our Tokyo trip was so memorable!

Mari:

Thank you very much for taking your time to write such a wonderful review. It was my great pleasure to share the enjoyable time with you. I still remembered that your Preston was so warm-hearted to take care of your mother and your Brendel played piano so nicely. I am sure they will have bright future. Thank you again.
