We had the most wonderful day with Sachimi. She is a wealth of information and likes to have a laugh too! We (family with 2 older teens) really enjoyed the day and are so pleased we toured with her. Thank you again Sachimi!
Sashimi was very good to talk English with, and was excellent at pointing out things that a foreigner would find interesting, while explaining the cultural and historical context. She also was excellent at adapting the tour to how much energy and interest we subtly exhibited.
We were on a family vacation throughout Japan the last two weeks in August 2017 and our tour with Sachimi was, without a doubt, the highlight of our trip! Sachimi gave us a tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market followed by a tour of Asakusa. She was so knowledgeable about everything we experienced. We would not be able to have gotten through either location without her expertise. Sachimi was also so great with our 11 year old son. She made certain he was enjoying himself as much as we were. I highly recommend her services! Sachimi, thank you for such an enjoyable tour!
Sachimi was the perfect guide. As we were not familiar with the train system and do not speak the language, Sachimi's detailed directions, including photos, helped us to get to the station and meet her on time. Prior to meeting her, she communicated with us several times regarding various options for getting to Kawagoe and also asked us about our lunch preferences. This made us feel so much more comfortable. We were all set to go as soon as we met her. On the train ride to Kawagoe, she gave us a brief historical review of the Edo period and what the plans were for the day. The Kita-In Temple was awesome and her explanation along the way made everything more meaningful. The beautiful grounds were peaceful and calming. We knew we were in good hands for the day. She already made lunch reservations and we were anxious to try Kawagoe's unagi lunch. So perfect! We had a delicious and leisurely lunch and learned much more about Kawagoe's history and culture. This is truly the value of having a personal guide. Walking through the old town mixed with newly built structures gave us a different feeling from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. It was fun to sample Kawagoe's special food items and walk down "candy alley". It was a full and yet relaxing day. Sachimi was very flexible as she altered our original plan to accommodate our needs. Her excellent English, her caring ways and knowledge of the area including the loop bus and train schedules allowed us to have a most enjoyable day. We will certainly recommend her to our friends and contact her again when we return to Japan.
Sachimi contact us several times prior to our arrival in Tokyo. She Incorporated all our feedbacks and customized a wonderful tour of Tokyo. We wanted to tour a few tourist attractions as well as visiting a local neighborhood and dine where locals eat. Sachimi is well versed in English and came prepared with some historical and cultural background of Tokyo before our tour. We went to Ueno Park, Asakusa, ate a delicious tempura lunch and toured old neighborhood of Yanaka. The four of us had a wonderful exposure of Tokyo! Sachimi is like a friend taking us around. Will recommend Sachimi to friends visiting Tokyo.
