“ Extremely polite, efficient and friendly ”

I had the pleasure of meeting Tomoko for our one night tour of Shinjuku. Even though we were staying in Shinjuku, I preferred to hire a guide for the walking tour at night especially for visiting Kabukicho area. She is an excellent guide, very polite, knowledgeable and speaks very good english and communicates well. She gladly customized the tour duration to our need. I wish I had planned some of the day time tours also with her. I would strongly recommend hiring her to get to know more about the places you are visiting.

Tomoko:

Thank you very much for very thoughtful and warm comments. Suravi and her parents were very nice family to be with. Our trip time was not long, but I also had a wonderful time with them. She was attentive and showed her interests to every places I guided. I truly hope that they come back again to join my different tour.

“ An amazing and fun insight into Japanese Culture and Tradition ”

This was a brilliant trip for us; suitable for children and adults (we are 47, 44, 13 and 10), and holding all of our attention throughout. Tomoko speaks perfect English, was always prompt in answering our questions in the build up to our trip, and even came to pick us up at our hostel and dropped us off at the end of our time with her. We did origami, kimono wearing, furoshiki (gift wrapping with a single piece of cloth) and finished with a tea ceremony (both with her making it and serving us, and then a chance for us all to make it and serve her and each other!) - all at her house. Great instruction, loads of fun and pics, loads of answered questions (on a wide range of topics) and an amazing time had by all. Did not rush us at all. A perfect way for children to experience it all... read more

Tomoko:

“ Antique and Tokyo market tour ”

Tomoko was very sweet and organised a great itinerary. Unfortunately the weather did not agree with us on the day so we were unable to do all that was planned. It was great to have a locals knowledge of the less populated shrines and areas. She took us to some wonderful areas. Unfortunately in the rush to get back to the hotel and airport the antique Kokeshi Dolls that I bought were lost, left in the taxi maybe?

Tomoko:

I am so sorry to hear that you lost the antique Kokeshi Dolls.... It was too rush to get back to the airport, and I should have managed time better so that you could have more time to return. However, I personally, really enjoyed traveling with you. You and your friend were very nice with alot of a interest and respect to Japanese culture and warm attitude towards me in spite of various changes in plans and schedules. Really hope that you come back to Japan again, so that I will sure to make up.

“ Very kind / Good Communication ”

Tomoko was very good! She helped us so much with figuring out how to get around in Japan and we really enjoyed our time with her in Shibuya, Omotesando, and Harajuku. She is easy to understand and very kind.

Tomoko:

Dear Dorie, Thank you very much for your kind message. I really glad to hear that you enjoyed places we visited in spite that there were so many people there. I also enjoyed communication with both of you very much during the tour. Hope to see you again!!
