What to Expect

. Tsukiji market is one of the most popular attractions among foreign tourists. Although there are many strict rules you have to keep, Tsukiji market is worth visiting. You may see various kinds of fish and vegetables unique in Japan. After feeling the energy of the market, we move to a beautiful traditional garden, Hamarikyu, which is only about 10 minutes' walk away. It was once a palace and garden of Tokugawa shoguns. From the garden, we ride on a water-bus which runs to Asakusa. Please enjoy a one hour Sumida river cruise while you are relax and feel cool breeze. Then we get off the final stop, Asakusa. The most popular attraction in Asakusa is Sensoji temple, known as Asakusa Kannon Temple. You can enjoy the atmosphere of old Tokyo, Edo.

“ Vacation in Tokyo ”

Michiko did an excellent job guiding my husband and me throughout Tokyo. From our early planning stages of this trip, we were very nervous energy because of the language barrier and the transportation system in Japan. However, Michiko spoke good English, took us to the bank, to nice restaurants, great tourist sights, and fabulous shopping centers. We would like to give special thanks to her and triple lights for the service you provide to tourists from foreign countries. We had a great time.

Michiko:
Dear Rosemary and Jose, Thank you very much for giving me such a great review. I also enjoyed the time sharing with you. Especially, the time we spent in the Tokyo Sky Tree. We enjoyed our delicious lunch with the great view .Thank you again and I hope you come back to Japan sometime! Michiko

“ Fun day in Tokyo ”

I had a wonderful day tour of Asakusa with Michiko. She was a very knowledgeable guide and explained to me the local customs and history of the area. I did the tour on a layover of Tokyo and she made sure I knew how to get from the airport to the meeting point and even walked with me to the correct train platform for my return journey to the airport to make sure I didn't get lost. I really enjoyed my day with her and totally recommend her as guide for anyone on a trip to Tokyo.

Michiko:
Dear Christy, Thank you very much for giving me such a great review. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed even a short stay in Tokyo and arrived at your home with no difficulty. I hope you can stay longer here next time! Michiko

“ Unique Bar Hopping Experience ”

My husband and I had a totally unique experience with Michiko that I don't think could have been accomplished without a Tokyoite. It was our first hours in Tokyo and we got to experience a part of Shinjuku like a local. It was definitely a fun and memorable evening. We had a quiet pleasant time at our first stop in fancier izakaya and then went for a walk around Shinjuku to see Godzilla, sit with the robots for some pictures, Kabukicho, and Omoide Yokocho(Memory Lane). We then headed to another izakaya, I believe to be in Memory Lane, which we had to climb up a narrow steep stairwell to get to the upstairs area and were joined by two locals, total strangers which I hear is common, for an even more memorable night. Then off to Golden Gai to experience the drinking scene there. We are not big party goers and drinkers but enjoy an occasional drink with friends and so I think despite what the night might sound like it could be enjoyed by all. We got to experience the "Japanese" small plates, their beers, and shochu and the ambience. Thank you Michiko for an experience we will always remember.

Michiko:
Dear Amy-san, Thank you very much for sending me a great review. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed each drinking place. That was really fun night, especially the bar in Memory Lane. It is said that Japanese are shy but, once we drink, we become very friendly and sometimes enjoy conversation with even totally strangers. I didn't expect to be treated by the Japanese businessmen there. Maybe because you are good listeners? I won't forget the night we spent together, thank you. Michiko
