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

As a family of four with two younger teenagers, we had the benefit of having Sachimi as our guide in Tokyo for two days. It was the kids’ first trip to Japan, and we were pleased that Sachimi was able to custom tailor the itineraries to include everyone’s interests; samurai history/demonstration, traditional tea ceremony, Tsujuki fish market, Meiji shrine, Harakuju, delicious udon lunch, and much more. Sachimi was very well-versed in the subway and train system and helped us learn how to manage it. Prior to our arrival her communication with us was excellent and responsive and she planned our days efficiently, so we were able to maximize the short two days. It rained the first day and fortunately Sachimi planned accordingly changing things around, overall was very considerste of our needs.... read more
