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. Would we use her again? Absolutely. Do we recommend her? 100%. Great value for money too.
Thank you very much for a great feedback. I am really flattered. In fact, I had also a wonderful time with all of you!! You were so engaged and paid attention to all activities positively, that made our tour a special one. Hope that you come back to Japan and have a time with you again. Please enjoy your rest of traip safely!!
