Tomoko was awesome! She has great energy and is very easy to get along with. She was willing to answer all sorts of questions about Japanese culture and even her own family and experiences, and we had a great exchange and learned a lot about each other. She is knowledgeable about the places we visited, which gave us a much deeper understanding of what we saw and the history of Fukuoka. Her English is impeccable and she is very easy to understand. Tomoko put together a great itinerary for us based on what I told her our interests were, and she was very responsive throughout the entire proposal and booking process. She had no problem making some minor adjustments to the itinerary and being flexible the day of the tour. We were the only ones on our cruise ship who saw some of the sig... read more

5 stars are not enough to describe the brilliance and excellence of Tomoko. I would have no hesitation to give her 10 stars judging from our happiness, delightfulness and satisfaction after the wonderful tour guided by Tomoko. Tomoko is absolutely a charming, pretty, lovely and helpful tour guide who possesses very rich knowledge of those places we visited. She responded quickly to our expressed need and expectations on the custom tour and prepared a clear itinerary appropriately for us. Furthermore, she took us to the restaurants with delicious food and reasonable prices which saved us money for more shopping ^^.

Tomoko-san was the best! We were able to tour the less touristy areas of Fukuoka with her. The best part was that the experience felt touring with a friend than a guide! In a day, we were able to go to Yanagawa to take a boat tour, eat authentic Anago, and go up the Atago Shrine overlooking the city; we barely saw any foreign tourists. Best of all, felt like we gained a new friend in Fukuoka.
Hello Don!! Thank you so much for heartwarming reviews and having me as your tour guide. Truly delighted to have lots of conversation with you and your mom!! You guys are spectacular people. And glad to hear that you enjoyed the less touristy areas. Imagine your life gets to normal!! You are such a great gentleman who think and cares about your beloved mother!! I truly respect your all manners and consideration. Hope to see you soon. Tomoko
Tomoko is a very knowlagable wonderful guide. She speaks fluent english, is kind and understanding, knows her city well, and is focused on you the entire visit. I would highly recomend her to anyone visiting the Hakata/Fukuoka area.
Hi Gordon!! Thank you so much for uplifting review! It was such a short time to see around sites. Time flied so quickly. You are so considerate & friendly to share lots of stories with me!! How valuable the time was!! Once again, thank you:)
Tomoko was an absolute wonderful guide. I easily understood her and she was very personable and easy to get along with. I'd recommend her to anyone stopping at Fukuoka. If you like food, especially sweets, she's definitely the guide for you!

Your profound knowledge, thought, and wisdom were so impressive and inspiring during lots of conversation. You were very friendly & so much fun to talk to with:) I truly hope your ongoing journey, each moment, each place will enhance your understanding of Japanese culture and tradition:) Please enjoy your trip!!
Tomoko is super friendly and an amazing guide. Nothing was too much trouble or too rushed, and she was always thinking of interesting spots to see along the way. Travelling alone sometimes gets lonely, but meeting Tomoko was instantly like seeing an old friend. Could not have asked for a better guide or better company to spend my time in Fukuoka with. Super highly recommended. ありがとう。

Hi Leshley!! Thank you so much for your heartwarming comment! I like your vibe and the way you treat your friends who can have a meaningful time in Fukuoka!! I am so grateful to have been part of your trip!! Come visit again!!
From the time I started to plan our trip, Tomoko was most helpful. She gave us many options to choose from and gave me information so that I could research what would be best for myself, my husband, our 13 year old daughter and nephew. She was so quick to respond to all my questions too. Upon meeting her, I already knew we would enjoy our day. She was very kind and warm and really connected with all of us. She is a winderful guide and a very lovely person. Thank you so much Tomoko! We are so glad we met you!
Hello Ma!! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wonderful family’s trip. I am so delighted to receive such a heartwarming & lovely comment. Even though the time for the trip was a short and I had to make you walk extra by my mistake, you have such a great heart to be connected with me. I feel like being a member of your family:) I could feel a great value in you as a person and mother. Very delighted to be your guide!! And how lucky I could have met you and your family!!
The experience with Tomoko was great - prior to the trip she was very accommodating and she gave us a lot of options and research in order to make the best out of her trip. She will go the extra mile to help you, even if it isn't covered in the tour! She took our small group to the Yatai Food Stalls, and everything was great. Always a pleasure to have booked with her.
Hi Kim!! Thank you so much for your heartwarming and uplifting feedback!! You are such a lovely & warm person who is willing to learn and experience Japanese food, culture, and history. I enjoyed the time with you and your fellows. Always it is my pleasure to assist you if necessary. I am looking forward to seeing you again!! Hopefully maybe next year:)
Tomoko is an amazing and beautiful person, aside from being an absolutely fantastic guide. If you want a custom tour to suit your exact needs, she's the one! From start to finish, Tomoko went above and beyond to accommodate all our requests. I had given her a general idea of what we wanted to do (such as watching a sumo practice) Tomoko did the research and gave us several options for our custom tour. We were even able to make adjustments on the fly to the itinerary (we ended up going to a different sumo stable rather than our planned one due to the time and proximity) as she had back up plans for whatever situations arose. Tomoko was very knowledgeable with regards to the stories and history of the places we visited, she made the entire time fun and interesting. She was always punctual, a... read more
Hi Darren!! Thank you for your uplifting & heartwarming comments. So glad to hear you enjoyed 4-day-trips. First and foremost, I am thankful that you were very patient to communicate with me through messages back and forth, even though I could not response quickly enough sometimes. I am truly grateful that you trusted in me on itineraries I suggested. Whenever you went and visited, you showed your appreciations to food, places, culture and you were so kind to every single person whom you encountered. I am truly fortunate to be able to meet you and get to know you as a person. You are really awesome inside and out!! It was a spectacular & meaningful time we shared. Until you come back here again, I will explore more cuisine shops for you:) Thanks a lot!!
Our day with Tomoko can best be described as magical. She met us at the port and carefully escorted us all over Fukuoka. We saw so many sights! Her English is wonderful; she is careful and caring. We hated to say "good-by" Tomoko helped us to fall in love with her city and with Japan. I can't say enough wonderful things about this guide.
Deborah, thank you for your heartwarming feedback. It means a lot to me and gives me much greater motivation for tour guide in the near future. How delightful you got to know & love Fukuoka. Always welcome you whenever you have a chance to come back here:) You and your husband are such a wonderful couple whom I admire. It was my pleasure to have you as great guests.
She speaks fluent English and is a superb guide with an excellent service mind. We had planned on taking the grandchildren to Nokonoshima Island but the weather was not cooperative. Tomoko’s ingenuity and knowledge of the area turned what would have been a potentially dreary day into one of fun and activities for the kids. “This is the best day in Fukuoka!” my granddaughter said. Thank you,Tomoko, for saving the day.
Hi Vicharat, Thank you so much for heartwarming comments. How delightful to be able to see your family bond on this trip!! I was pleased by your grandchildren’s smiles & curiosities at the acquriam. Your granddaughter comment make my day as well. Vicharat, you are such a specutacular grandfather, father, husband and my guest. I am truly honored to be your tour guide. Hopefully see you in the near future in Japan or Thailand.
Tomoko is a fantastic representative of this company. Very patient and understanding. Such a delight to have a great few hours with a knowledgeable resident who seemed to genuinely enjoy showing us around. Would highly recommend.
Thank you for your warm comments, Robert!! It was a great pleasure for me to welcome you and show you around. I truly appreciate you get to know & embrace cultural diversity. You are fun to be around. Such a great time to share with you guys!! Thank you:)
She introduced us restaurants that local people would go. For me, travelling is getting to know life and values of the people I visit. In that part, it was very lucky for me to meet her through triplelight.
Thank you for your heartwarming comment!! It was my pleasure to be your son’s & your guide. Also I was really lucky to have you as my guests. Your curiosity and gratitude for Japanese culture & food made my day!! Thank you!!!
