From start to finish it was a wonderful, experience for us visiting the Yanaka area. iAs first time visitors to Tokyo, Hiroko made us so welcome. We were able to learn so much about Japanese history and culture in such a short time. It was a lot of fun. Bob and Judy Carroll
Hiro was friendly ,knowledgable and very engaging.She was aware of the type of trip we wanted and delivered without fault- conversation was easy with her perfect English and we thoroughly enjoyed our three days . Hiro was happy to accompany us to Hiroko and organise transport and logistics.Lunch and dinner recommendations were spot on and we would recommend without hesitation. M and N -London.
Hiroko was amazing! I enjoyed spending every minute with her. Our family had a great fun filled day going to the fish market, shrines, temple, shopping and eating. We would be lost without her. She helped us with the train and getting around Tokyo. She also told us about some local tips and traditions which we would not realize without her. I wished she was available again the next day so we could spend even more time together. I have so many friends already reaching out to ask about this service. I don’t think they realize how easy and great experience this was. Thank you so much! Hope we can come visit again in the future and have you take us around again. Grace
Hiroko is very kind and knowledgeable. She prepared an interesting tour and at the same time she was flexible and considerate of any suggestions we might have. We visited a lot of the highlights of the city without it ever feeling rushed. She also helped us along with tips and answers to our questions for the rest of our trip. Hiroko speaks excellent English - which is rather rare in Japan (she lived in the US for a while). She also shared her stories with us which made the tour all the more interesting and personal.
My daughter and and we’re entirely new to Japan the day we met Hiroko. She not only gave us a terrific tour, but was insightful and attentive to our questions and interests. She help us with the language, traditions, culture and necessities of successfully finding our way. She was delightful and wholly personable all day and across many miles!
