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. Sachimi has a very pleasant and sweer manner with very good English. She was easygoing with our children, even creating a quiz game with origami paper prizes that they were delighted with even as young teenagers. We enjoyed getting to know Tokyo and Sachimi. Very highly recommend Sachimi!
Our traveling crew had an informative, well organized and enjoyable tour with Sachimi in Tokyo. She was prompt, knowledgeable and very conscientious as she met our tour needs. Great sushi/ suchimi lunch was enjoyed by all.
Sachimi is the best tour guide we ever had. She planned a 1/2 tour of Tokyo for my wife and myself meticulously. Spot on time she picked us up at our hotel and not only was a very knowledgeable Tokyo tourguide, but also helped us to rent bikes (bike sharing) as well as making JR reservations. Unfortunately we only had 1/2 a day to spend with Sachimi and would have loved to have more time with her. Her English is immaculate and everyone who has the pleasure of having a tour with Sachimi will for sure be as pleased as we are. Thanks a lot Sachimi for your outstanding tour!
We had a great tour with Sachimi. She met us at the cruise ship in Yokohama as scheduled. We took trains and subways everywhere, which helped give us a "local" experience. We would not have wanted to navigate the trains by ourselves. She is a delightful person with great English and tailored the itinerary to our interests. I just wish we had been able to tour with her for another day. Thank you, Sachimi, for a wonderful day.
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.
We had a great time with Ms. Sachimi as our guide. The day prior to our appointment, she dropped off a nice reminder on our doorstep which was a comfort to us because we were assurred that she was going to show up. She showed us how to go around using the subway as well as the high speed train. That was invaluable since that enabled us to go all over Japan. We plan on having her as our guide again on our next visit.
