Shizuko was great with me and my family. We had 2 kids on the tour and she accommodated all of our special requests to ensure we had an awesome time. The highlights were how she came prepared with great facts and details and how she interacted with my kids, they are 12 and 9. She is top notch and if we ever come back and need a guide we will definitely use her again. I highly recommend her services.
Dear Olivia, Thank you very much for your wonderful review for me. I really appreciated it. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. I was so happy to see that your children could get their favorite toys at the Kiddy Land. And it was fun to talk and share time with your mother, too. Thank you again for having me as your guide this time. Please give my best regards to your husband, mother and lovely two children. I hope you enjoy the rest of your days in Japan and see your again someday in the future. Shizuko

Dear Allan, Annette, Judy and David, Thank you very much for sending me such a wonderful and warm review. Your kind review really encouraged me. And I’m so glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour with me. Because it was too heavy rain to take a waterbus and we had to change some parts of the original plan. I appreciate for having me as your guide. I hope you had enjoyed other districts in Japan, too. If I have a chance to see you again in the future, it would be great. Thank you very much again, Allan, Annette, Judy and David! Shizuko
Suzuko was our guide for two days in Tokyo. It was easy to work with her prior to our visit to develop a plan that efficiently fit in all of our wish list sights. Most importantly, she was a delight to be with—her English was perfect, she was extremely knowledgeable, was flexible when we wanted to linger or move along and quickly picked up on our interests so she could adjust the pacing and focus on information that she thought we would find interesting. She went above and beyond!!! When she met us for the second day of touring she came with tons of information for the rest of our stay. She wrote out instructions for the taxi driver to get us to the correct entrance to the Tokyo station for our bullet train, wrote out subway directions to get us there, drew a map of the relevant area ... read more
Dear Eva, Thank you very much for your warm and kind review. I am so happy to know that you were satisfied with my guiding in Tokyo. Although the second day of the tour was extremely cold like winter, I was glad to complete the tour to the end. I hope you've enjoyed many things in Tokyo including a hot spring bath in Shinjuku. I hope to see you again sometime in the future. Please give my best regard to Alexa. Thank you very much again, Eva.
First time in Japan and as a solo traveler and she helped me ease up on the nerves I've had and made feel more comfortable around Tokyo and the transit system. She is very knowledgeable and friendly and shown me aound from Asakusa to Shibuya on the Yamanote Line and even to Odaiba. We even went to a Maid Cafe in Akihabara, which was the highlight of the tour I would say. Haha. I still find it funny that you shown me the Statue of Liberty for the first time and as an American I never seen the New York version. A Japanese person showing an American the Statue of Liberty. Haha, I'll never forget that. Overall, sad to see the tour is over. Loved you being my guide! Would book again if I could!
Dear Eric, Thank you very much for your wonderful review for me. I’m so glad to know that you enjoyed and were satisfied with the tour with me. I myself enjoyed the touring you and had a nice experience at Maid Café especially. It was so lucky for us to enjoy their pretty dancing and singing at the stage. I had also funny feeling to guide you (an American) the Statue of Livery in JAPAN. You have a lot of plans to do in Japan, I hope my guiding will help you to get around by yourself easily all over Japan. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your days in Japan to the fullest. If I could have a chance to guide you again, it would be great. Thank you again. Shizuko
My family had a lovely and very interesting day tour with you Shizuko! You were very informative and explained to us about the Japanese culture and history at every place we visited. You made a very detailed itinerary, which really helped us as this was our 1st trip to Tokyo! We kindly thank you for your time, and will always be grateful for the memorable experience you have given us on your day tour of Tokyo. Tokyo is such a big busy city, and for you to guide us around by train, subway and water taxi we are very fortunate for that experience. We will definitely be back to Japan for more adventures, and would recommend you to anyone for tours. Warmest regards Haylie & Family from Australia
Dear Haylie, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I’m so glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour with me. I felt very happy that you could take pictures of some cherry blossoms still bloomed in the Japanese garden. I hope your younger daughter, she was a little tired in the crowds of people, is fine today and enjoy her days in Japan. Please come back to Japan someday in the future. It was so nice meeting all of you. Thank you again and give my best regards to your parents and lovely children. Shizuko
