There are some reviews from the customers.
"The tour was a "live" tour to the Asakusa temple. We met Yukiko virtually through Zoom on the street and walked with her to the temple. It was almost as good as actually being there. Yukiko gave an excellent introduction and overview of what we would see. Along the way she spoke with several shopkeepers and a rickshaw driver. She gave explanations of the conversations. She stopped at the small stores selling treats and at the fortune telling shop. She explained the ritual hand washing. Murals along the way helped explain the history of the temple, so that when we went through the gates we knew what to expect. The gates and 5 story pagoda were shown in detail, and it was much more "real" than if in a travelogue as we could ask questions and interact as she walked. Yukiko's English is excellent and she has a strong vocabulary, which enhances the explanations and conversations. The temple was fascinating and in the second tour we did get a chance to see inside. The hour seemed to go so very fast. The tour was excellent and highly recommended."
"This 95% live tour with an experienced Guide will ready one for an actual visit to Japan, after Covid-19 has been brought under control. The views shown are sharp & clear. It seems as if you are actually walking, seeing the scenes, the residents, the shrines and temples, but one doesn't feel rushed. Your Guide can zoom-in closer, or back off. You only sit at your computer at home, and enjoy, as if being there in person. The missing 5% would be the inability to eat the delicious foods of Japan, and the shopping, of course!
I had a wonderful time with Guide Yukiko. She is such a meticulous planner, and tries to include every possibility. She is easy to talk to, accommodating, and flexible with hours. Even though I have taken this 'Virtual' tour with her already, I shall surely select Guide Yukiko for an actual tour with her, post Covid."

This was my first trip to Tokyo. I booked 4 hours with Yukiko and it was great! She is very friendly and helpful. She helped me buy a Suica card and explained how to use the metro. We went to Asakusa and Ginza. Yukiko had lots of information to share and even helped me with my shopping! I would book her again and highly recommend her.

There are many other nice spots in Tokyo and outside of the city. I'd like to introduce you such places for the next time. Thank you once again and have a safe flight back to your country. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Our full-day tour of Tokyo with Yukiko was amazing. She is punctual, charming, knowledgeable, incredibly well-organised and her English is excellent. She had informative folders for each location and it was a pleasure to hear her talk about each landmark or area we were visiting. I had prompt and frequent contact with Yukiko immediately after inquiring about her services, and she was very flexible and helpful in suggesting and amending itineraries until it suited our requirements. Yukiko was also wonderful at engaging and interacting with our two young daughters (aged 6 and 11). They loved her origami lessons on the longer subway trips. She was able to organise lunch for us at an Okonamiyaki restaurant in Asakusa, and with her recommendations we were able to enjoy this traditional Jap... read more
Thank you for your heartfelt review, Des! I really appreciated it. The day was your last day of your entire trip and also it was the only day that you could spend in central Tokyo, so I wanted to make it a real pleasant one for you and your family. I'm glad that you enjoyed each place we visited and my interacting activities. I hope those experiences would broaden children's horizon and prompt their interests about Japan. I always welcome your next visit. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Yukiko is a lovely guide. She took into consideration my interests, my wishes and my budget. She showed me around the places i said i was interested in as well as came up with amazing suggestions i would have not thought of. She made the tour enjoyable and full of information that i would have not been able to get otherwise. The pace of the tour was tailored to what i mentioned. Moreover, she is a lovely person and very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Maria! I appreciated it very much and pleased to hear that the tour was enjoyable and meaningful. Japan has many nice and beautiful traditional cultures which have been still alive. I think that the concept and ideas of these traditional cultures naturally influences on our thinking and attitudes. I also would like to learn more about your country's traditional cultures as well, especially the culture of tea. I hope you enjoy the rest of your days in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimshita!!
