“ An amazing tour of Tokyo with a wonderful tour guide! ”

Firstly, Fumiko is an incredible tour guide. She is so kind, helpful and compassionate. She helped plan our tour and recommended so many great locations; we really did have an amazing day with her. Fumiko is so organised and had meticulously researched every stop of our tour. She was full of insightful facts about each destination and it really did open our eyes to life in this wonderful city. We would wholeheartedly recommend Fumiko to anyone looking to book a tour in Tokyo. Our only regret is that we could not spend more time with her. Thank you so much Fumiko. We will not forget you!

Fumiko:

Dear Sam, Thank you very much for your review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour. I also had a wonderful day with you and your family. You checked about Tokyo very well in advance and all the members were cheerful, friendly and enjoyable. I am sure you will enjoy the rest of stay in Japan. See you someday again. I also will not forget you and your family members! Best regards, Fumiko

Fumiko is helpful to help us to purchase train tickets and discuss with us the plan of the day. She is knowledgeable on history and geography. We are happy to have her as our guide for the day.

Fumiko:

Dear Chee, Thank you very much for your review! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. as Shibamata is a bit far from center of Tokyo and not so many foreign visitors visit theie.

“ An Amazing Day in Tokyo ”

We had an amazing day with Fumiko in Tokyo. She is very good English speaking guide with in depth knowledge. We traveled with her in public transport and it was a very good experience. She took us around Tokyo smartly within the available time. The Kabuki show was excellent. Thanks to her for making advance arrangements for the same as well as travel. The day was memorable. Will strongly recommend her services for moving around Tokyo.

Fumiko:

Dear Abhay, Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I felt very sorry that it had taken a very long time to return to your Hotel at Narita. You and your wife must have been very tired I am sorry. There are more things to see in Tokyo. Please come back again. Next time, I will show you different places with better transportation❣️Please take care of yourself. Say hallo to your wife & son. I will never forget you and shared experience. Best regards, Fumiko

“ An excellent tour guide! ”

We had an absolutely fantastic day tour with Fumiko. She was amazing. We never would have been able to see so much of Tokyo without her. She helped us so much with fine tuning our itinerary and made great recommendations for places to stop for food and snacks. We really appreciated all of her insight and really enjoyed our time with her! She went above and beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend planning a tour with Fumiko!!

Fumiko:

Dear Sherri, Thank you very much for your review! I had also whale of a time with you and your friends. You three were energetic and pleasant . I am really looking forword to seeing you in 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. I think you are very busy now. Please take care of yourself. Please say hello to Linda and Heidi. See you next year! Best regards. Fumiko

“ Excellent family tour in Tokyo ”

We had a fantastic tour with Fumiko and would recommend her as a guide for anyone looking for an experienced and personable guide in Tokyo. We asked for a tour that was a mix of old and new Tokyo and that was varied enough to keep our young family interested (kids aged 8, 6 and 4 years old) and she planned it perfectly. We visited Meiji shrine and she taught us how to follow the rituals and pray which the we all really enjoyed - leaving our prayer board hanging in this beautiful shrine was very special. It is super hot in August so Fumiko scheduled a stop for ice cream at a lovely quiet spot and whilst there taught the children some origami and then joined them throwing their newly made paper planes which they loved. It was so nice of her to get involved with the children and they real... read more

Fumiko:

Dear Alison, Thank you very much for your review. I also had a very good time with your family. Your children were so lovely and behaved well. Before starting the tour, I was a little bit worried, whether such small children could enjoy Meiji Jingu Shrine and very crowded Takeshita Street. They might have got tired as we had to walk a lot. I dinnot need to worry about it. They walked a lot and all your family members eojoyed everything in the tour such as beautiful senery of the forest of Meiji Jingu Shrine as well as Shirine itself, Origami, 100 yen shop, cupsel toys and raimbow sandwiches, which made me very happy! I hope you will enjoy the rest stay in Japan and see you again some day in the future. Best regards, Fumiko

“ Getting around without getting lost! ”

Wow! Japan can be a challenge to say the least. I don't know how we would have navigated the area we were in without Fumikos help. Just getting to Tokyo from our hotel was a challenge, but once we got there, Fumiko was a life saver. If your traveling with a family, I would highly recommend a tour guide, as the energy needed to get around can be depleted quickly. Having questions in advance for your tour guide will go a long way in making your adventure worthwhile. Learn some basic phrases and ask as many questions as you can at the airport info desk.

Fumiko:

Dear Rick, Thank you for your review. I had a very nice time with your family. I hope you will enjoy the rest of stay in Japan. Please take care of yourself. Best regards, Fumiko

“ Busy Tokyo ”

Fumiko is a wonderful ambassador for Japan. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the sights and customs of Tokyo, she showed incredible kindness to help us with regard to some lost luggage. I am forever grateful for meeting Fumiko.

Fumiko:

Dear David, Thank you for your review. I am very happy that your luggage has found and you could return your home country with it! Although Tokyo was very busy especially during the golden week, I had a very good time with you and Atisha. Please visit Japan again. Tokyo is not always such crowded. I hope you and your family's happiness and good health. See you again someday ! Best regards, Fumiko

“ Wonderful day with Fumiko ”

We had a fabulous day with Fumiko, who guided us around the cultural sights of Tokyo. She carefully arranged an itinerary to cover the sights I requested including the Imoerial Palace gardens, Meiji shrine and Sensoji Temple, Fumiko was full of information regarding the history of Japan and kept my 3 boys interested, even though temples and shrines are not exactly their cup of tea. Fumiko found a couple of shops for them to keep us going, and kept our tummies full at a delicious udon noodle restaurant . She answered all our questions and also gave us a little insight into living in Japan. We had a really great day and this tour was the best way to begin out time in Tokyo. Thank you Fumiko !

Fumiko:

Dear Kathy, Thank you very much for your review. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. II also enjoyed with your family members. Your sons were so well- behaved and cute. I ho;e you will have a nice experience in the rest of your stay in Japan and see you again someday in the future. Fumiko

“ Kind, Knowlegable Guide ”

We spent two lovely days with Fumiko visiting sites old and new, shopping in streets funky and elegant, and enjoying the beauty and excitement of Tokyo. Fumiko is thoughtful, kind and well prepared. We felt like we were spending two days with a friend rather than just a guide.

Fumiko:

Dear Judy, Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour! I also enjoyed very much with you and your hsusband. I am also very glad to hear that you felt like you were with a friend. I also felt like we have known each other I since olden time. Maybe because you booked the tour last year and I was very looking forward to seeing you and your husband. I hope you and your husband will enjoy the contiuning tour, too. I pray for your good health and happiness and want to see you again someday in the future. Best regards, Fumiko

“ Sushi, Local Bar and Shabushabu! ”

Fumiko met us at our hotel (per our request and a small fee) promptly and took us to two food places and to a local Japanese bar. She answered all of my questions to assist in creating this customized night food tour in Shibuya. Her English was good. We had a great time and would use her again!

Fumiko:

Dear Stacy, Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and dirinking tour in Shibuya! I also enjoyed very much with your cheerful family members. What a nice family you have. I pray for good health and happiness for you and all your family members. I also hope we will meet again someday in the future. Please take care of yourself and say hello to your family members. Best regads, Fumiko

“ Best tour guide ever ! ”

Fumiko went above and beyond my expectations as a tour guide she went out of her way to make sure all our questions and wants were met. Fumiko is also attentive to detail and always make sure we were happy and changed the itinerary to fit the time we have. In 2 days we managed to visit harajuku, shibuya, tokyo ward east gardens, asakusa (promptly booked an appointment for kimono experience the very next day), ueno and akihabara. Highly recommend Fumoko!!!!!

Fumiko:

Dear Trang, Thank you very much for your review. I had a very good time with you and your family members. What a nice family! I am very glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. I hope you will enjoy traveling Osaka and other places in Japan. Also I hope for good health and hapiness of all of you. See you someday again! Best regards, Fumiko

“ One day tour of Nikko ”

I had a good day touring Nikko with Fumiko! She was organized, very timely and informative of Japanese culture/history as well as of the sites we visited in Nikko. She went out of her way to ensure that my day trip was fun. I really appreciated her flexibility on the day of the tour as well. Thank you Fumiko for showing me a great time in Nikko and for ensuring I was comfortable from beginning to end of the tour. As a solo traveler my number one concern is safety when traveling outside of a major city and Fumiko ensured I felt as ease from beginning to end. Thanks for a great day in Nikko Fumiko!

Fumiko:

Dear Reenu, Thank you very much for your review. I am very glad to hear that . You took many pictures of beautiful scenery in Nikko. Those pictures were amazing! I think you are so nice photographer. Now I want to start learing how to take good pictures. Thank you very much. I hope you will continue to take many beautiful pictures while working. Please take care of yourself. Best regards, Fumiko

“ Great tour! ”

Fumikob is a great tour guide. We had a wonderful time in Tokyo. Fumiko is very detailed oriented and informative in our tour. She was great in communication and went beyond her ways to help us find super Mario toys for our nephew. We were very fortunate to have Fumiko as our tour guide. Thank you for your great service, Funiko!

Fumiko:

Dear Anna, Thank you very much for your review. I had a very good time with your group. All of your members were cheerful and enjoyable, so I was very glad to talk with you and your members.

“ Great day! ”

We've had a great day in Tokyo with Fumiko-san. She's a real star in making the many things we had on our mind to do ( in just one day ) reality, by preparing our route and timeschedule meticulously, buying tickets in advance and contacting all the shops and the restaurant on forehand. So in one day she showed us the Senso-Ji area, Kappabashi -dori including a foodsamplemaking workshop, brought us to a fine eel restaurant near the river for a relaxing lunch, let us do shopping for tenugui in pre-selected shops, and also made sure that we were on time to see the Japanese Gallery of the National Museum. She knows a lot about the history of Japan, and Buddhism and Shinto traditions and told us lot of interesting facts during the day. On top of that she can give you a nice insight in... read more

Fumiko:

Dear Ariane, Thank you very much for your review. It was a great pleasure for me to be with you and your daughter. I also learned about things Japanese and about your country. You had reserched and prepared well about this trip in advance, and were energetic to enjoy Japanese culture. I also enjoyed very much. I hope good health and success of all your family members and also hope to see you again sometime in the future. Best regards. Fumiko

“ Fantastic! ”

Fumiko was amazing! Her communication prior to our visit was very thorough. She planned the day that catered for our needs. She really took into consideration my children's ages and what they would like and they did enjoy the day. She also helped us with other issues regarding the rest of our trip which was very useful. Were very happy to have her as a guide.

“ The older side of Tokyo. ”

My daughter and I had a great day with Fumiko. We loved the wind chimes at Ikegami honmonji Temple. We modelled kimonos and tried our hand at origami. We got to see another side of Tokyo one without the flashing neon lights maybe a more local view of everyday life in Tokyo. I would highly recommend Fumiko.

Fumiko:

Dear Lisa, Thank you very much for your review. I am very glad to hear that you liked the tour. When I first received your request that you wanted to visit an unbeaten place where many people did not visit and your daughter could enjoy, it was a bit difficult for me to make a plan. But, you and Stela tried to enjoy everything , which made me very happy. I will recommend foreign visitors take a tour around Ota city like you. I pray for you and Stela good health and success in the future. and I hope to see you someday again. Take care of yoursef. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Fumiko

“ Sweet and helpful ”

Fumiko was our sweet and helpful guide for a full day and took us to the main attractions of Tokyo. Though not planned yet she made quick arrangements for our family to take pics in traditional Japanese attire. She even made prior bookings for our lunch at an Indian restaurant in the Asakusa area. Our full family wants to thank her for guiding us well .

“ Fumiko makes the difference between walking in Tokyo and visiting Tokyo ”

We visited the gardens and the surroundings of the imperial palace. It was a great afternoon and an enjoyable time. Fumiko caters to her "customers" by adapting the schedule and giving information without overloading. A great afternoon

Fumiko:

Hi. Edwin, It was my great pleasure to walk around Tokyo and talk with you. You always listened to my explanation with interest. It was so beautiful afternoon with greenery and nature. I was very glad to hear that you enjoyed my walking tour. When you visit Japan next time, I would like to show you around Nkkko or other places than Tokyo. Please take care of your helth. Thank you very much. Best regards, Fumiko
