“ Hoilday in Tokyo ”

My experience with Chieko was awesome! She is a very experience guide. She did her homework well before meeting up with me so that to make sure I have a smooth tour. She speaks well and is very bubbly and friendly. My stay in Tokyo was a short one, hence, I didn't have enough time to visit all the places I wish to but I definitely plan to go back to Tokyo again and I will make a reservation with Chieko on my future tour in Tokyo. Thanks Chieko!

Dear Cassendra, Thank you very much for choosing me as your guide and I am very thankful for your good review! I enjoyed walking with such a friendly and lovely lady like you. I’d like to take you to the best sushi restaurant in Ginza next time. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon. Thank you. Chieko

“ Excellent and very responsible ”

Chieko designed a special tour for my 13-year-old son so that he could visit sites that specialized in Pokemon, video games, etc. She even did a test run before our visit because it was something new for her. Our son had a wonderful time and learned a lot about Japanese culture thanks to Chieko. She was wonderful!

Dear Andrew, thank you for such a wonderful review. I'm very glad to hear that your son enjoyed my tour. It was the first time I've taken a 13-year-old boy on a tour without his family. Before the tour, you kindly advised me of his interests in Pokémon, anime and video games. So I prepared and planned the tour to accommodate his interests. Also, a few days before the tour, I started playing Pokémon Go so I could understand the game and participate. Thanks to your son, I've found a new genre to add to my tour list. Please tell him that I enjoyed meeting such a smart, pleasant boy. Thank you again. Chieko

Chieko was great. She was very personally and took me around for a half day tour around Tokyo. We went to a festival that only happens once a year which was amazing. She also showed me how to pray and what it all means. This was my first time in Tokyo and I feel as if she really helped me get the lay of the land. I would definitely recommend her.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Danielle. I also enjoyed watching the festival with you on that day. It was gorgeous, wasn't it? Though, I felt a bit sorry for you to carry an umbrella all day because I told you it might rain in the afternoon. I’d like to show you many other enjoyable places in Tokyo. Please come to Japan again. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon. Thank you. Chieko

Chieko took our group around Tokyo according to our defined schedule. The trip went smoothly and it was really fantastic. Chieko was able to explain the story to each of us in an engaging way. She is reliable, knowledgeable and flexible. We would definitely love to go on walks guided by Chieko again.

Ms. THIN Hello! Thank you for your kind comment! I also enjoyed walking with you in Tokyo and Kamakura. All of you were friendly and nice people. I'm very happy to know that you have enjoyed the tour as well. Also I think you were a great trip planner. Let's wear a silk kimono on your next trip to Japan. I'm sure that it will look as good on you as the yukata you wore in Kamakura. Please give my best regards to all of them. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon. Thank you. Chieko
