“ Fish Market to Asakusa ”

Atsuko is charming and knows Tokyo as a local. The highlight for me was walking through the former gardens of an imperial palace and seeing modern Tokyo in the background at every direction.

Atsuko:

Thank you for nice review! I really enjoyed talking with you and Don. You told me a lot of things which I didn't know. I like your way of travel. I hope I would like to travel with my husband like yours. Thank you again and have a wonderful vacation.

“ Great Day ”

Atsuko was so generous with her time and patient (We had three kids with us).WE were able to see some of Tokyo's great sights and also entertain the children along the way. Atsuko showed us how to work out the Subway system and helped us understand the different parts of Tokyo. We really enjoyed our day with Atsuko, she was fantastic!

Atsuko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review ! I was so glad to share a pleasant time with your family. Your children are all adorable. When I was walking with your little daughter she was singing a song. It was so cute. Boys are so clever. I hope your family enjoyed travel in Japan and I hope to see you again !

“ An introduction to Tokyo ”

Atsuko was a friendly, organised and knowledgeable guide. She was able to design a tour of Tokyo around our suggestions (Fish Market, Asakusa, Imperial Gardens) that was interesting and very informative . However, the very hot and humid weather conditions on the day conspired to make our itinerary challenging for the overall time we had arranged.

Atsuko:

Thank you for taking time to write a good review. I hope your feet is getting well. The weater in Tokyo, this summer is unusually hot ! As most Japan continues to suffer an unprecedented heatwave. Taking public transportation require a lot of walking and each spot to see the sight also have to walk. Under the hot and humid weather it is not comfortable and made you tired. The best time for sightseeing is spring or autumn both weather is nice and mild. I hope you have a wonderful vacation.

“ Friendly Guide with Well Rounded Experience ”

Did a short half day tour as part of our first full day in Tokyo. Atsuko was very friendly and organized. The heat/humidity was very difficult to get used to. Strolled the Imperial Gardens and Omotesanso/Harajuku.

Atsuko:

Thank you for great review. I was so glad to share a pleasant time with your family. The heat and humidity was unpleasantly hot even me local people. Now typhoon is coming to west area of Japan so I'm worried that you are going to Kyoto. I hope you have a wonderful time in Japan !
