“ Very accommodating guide ”

Our family of 4 met Junko to guide us on a one day tour of Tokyo. She arrived on time and was prepared with handouts, maps etc. we had emailed back and forth before our trip discussing the itinerary. Junko replied promptly and happily revised as needed. We would not have been able to see as many sites on our own, she also taught us how to navigate the subway system which can be intimidating for a first timer who does not speak Japanese. Her English is good, we were able to understand most everything. Junko also took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch. It was affordable and one of the best meals we had. I would use her again if we are lucky enough to return to Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank you for a wonderful review, Ingrid. I am very glad to have helped you and your family know Tokyo. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thanks again. Junko

Junko:

“ Expectations................Delivered!!! ”

As a construction project management professional, I know the best service providers book quickly. Accordingly, we began the tour booking process months in advance. I was and remain thoroughly impressed with the timeliness, completeness, and accuracy of each and every email touching on every aspect (itinerary, logistics, meals, payment, etc.) of the tour between Junko myself. With such professionalism, I knew why others had such high regard for Junko. I knew I had selected the right private tour guide. With everything scheduled and agreed upon months in advance, all we had to do was wait for the events we scheduled to occur. And, they did occur - just like clockwork! Throughout our two-day tour, everything we saw and experienced with Junko was very good. Thank you Junko for c... read more

“ Wonderful, knowledgeable Guide! ”

Junko was a very knowledgeable and shared many stories and insights about Japan’s history throughout the day. As promised, she met us at our hotel and guided us through the subway system during our days journey. We visited an open air market which was very interesting showcasing many varieties of fresh and dried fish, beautiful fruits and vegetables. We visited a Shinto shrine and the beautiful Hama-rikyu Gardens. Then we boarded a boat and took a relaxing trip up the Sumida River to the Asakusa area. After a wonderful lunch at a Soba noodle restaurant we enjoyed more sightseeing in the area including a very beautiful Buddhist Temple. Junko always looked after our needs and made adjustments to our itinerary as the day progressed when she realized we were becoming tired. As promised she d... read more

“ Fantastic day in Tokyo ”

My husband, my 12 years old son and I spent 1 day wandering around Tokyo with Junko and I heartily reccomend her and her guide services. Junko knows Tokyo very well and she adds references to Japans history as well as modern culture. She was very flexible with our requests. We have been in touch before the trip and prepared a plan together of what we wanted to see. We did some minor deviation during the day due to our last minutes requests. It was an excellent experience and I'm glad I've chosen to tour with Junko. On top of everything else she speaks an excellent Italian and she knows Italy quite well. We've been delighted to meet and spend the day with Junko and we will cherish this experience for a long time

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Stefania! I am very happy to have accompanied you, Luca and Tommaso in Tokyo. How was Ghibli Museum? Spero che avrete un buon soggiorno in Japan. Grazie mille!! Junko
