“ Our one day tour of Kyoto highlightd ”

Sachimi was so lovely and taught us a great deal about Japanese culture. She showed us around Kyoto for the day and chose a wonderful restaurant for lunch. We would absolutely recommend her. We would definitely use her again as our guide.

“ Very Enjoyable and Informative Tour ”

Our experience with Sachimi was very fun! We visited Ueno Park and learned about the variety of museums present there. We also visited Nezu Shrine and Sachimi shared information regarding the historical and cultural significance of the architectures, and memorials there. When we went for lunch, Sachimi chose a very nice restaurant that fit our taste. She is a very knowledgeable and very kind guide. We highly recommend her for any and all travelers visiting Japan!

Sachimi:

Hi, Ellen-san Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am so glad spending a day with you and your son. Hope all of your stay and experience in Tokyo are memorable one despite hot weather.. I am looking forward to meeting you again at nicer season:). Thank you again and best regards, Sachimi

“ A wonderful tour of Tsukiji Market with Sachimi ”

Sachimi was an absolutely fantastic guide! She met us promptly at our hotel and took us through Ginza before starting the tour of Tsukiji. She explained everything about the market and each of the different things on sale we saw and also took us to the best spots for fish and other foods (instead of letting us buy them at the first stall we saw them). Having a Japanese speaking guide who was able to help us communicate was incredibly useful and Sachimi did an amazing job with everything. We would highly recommend her for a tour!

Sachimi:

Hi, Juan-san, Thank you so much for your wonderful review!! I am so glad you enjoyed the market so much. I also had good time with you seeing all of your happy face while eating “Oishi” food! Hope you had great holiday in Japan, and would come back again! Best regards Sachimi

“ Highlight of our Tokyo trip ”

You MUST book Sachimi for your tours. She is so easy to work with, speaks perfect English, and is beyond accommodating. We were a group of 8 adults on a tour to Kawagoe. Sachimi met us at our hotel in Ikebukuro and escorted is by train and bus to a kimono rental shop in Kawagoe. Having her there made it so easy to converse with the staff. The dress up went smoother than expected. It was so much fun walking around the historic town all dressed up. She pointed out landmarks and took us to places with the perfect backdrop for our photos. She even too pictures of us and is sending them to us. She selected the perfect restaurant for lunch which was excellent. This experience really was the highlight of our trip and had created many memorable moments for all of us. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting ... read more

Sachimi:

Dear Leigh-san and all, Thank you very much for having me as your guide and thanks so much for such a lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed and loved the town walk with Kimono. It was really nice day for me as well. We enjoyed so much! I am looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Thank you & regards, sachimi
