“ A motherly presence ”

We went on an 8hr tour with 5 kids of all ages and everyone had a great time because Sachimi went overboard to make sure that the everyone's whim was catered for. What could have been a stressful experience turned out to be a wonderful, fun & culturally and historically educational tour. Make Sachimi your guide and you will have no worries.

Sachimi:

Hi Adrian-san & family. Thank you very much for very warm review. It was lovely day to spend day with you at my favorite town, Kawagoe. I am so glad that everyone enjoyed the day, especially eating and shopping :) Please enjoy whole your stay in Japan for a month & lovely family get together. I wish to see you again in the future. best regards, sachimi

“ 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

“ Best decision to go with Sachimi in Tokyo! ”

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

Sachimi:

Dear Wong family, Thank you very much for such a lovely review! I also had great two days with you. I am so pleased that your could maximize yout stay in Tokyo by having me, and even more that your children enjoyed all aspects. Thank you for inviting me to tea ceremony. It was really nice experience for all! Please enjoy whole your stay in Japan, and I hope to see you again in the future! best regards, sachimi

“ Best tour guide ever ”

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!

Sachimi:

Dear Ludger-san Thank you so much for such a lovely review!! It was really my pleasure to spend time with you two! Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. And I hope to see you again in the future! best regards sachimi

“ Tokyo highlights in one day ”

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.

Sachimi:

Dear Susan-san, Thank you very much for your lovely review. It was really my pleasure to meet you & David-san and spend a day with you. I also enjoyed the tour very much! I hope you will come back to Japan and to see you again! Thank you very mucu & best regards, Sachimi

“ Amazing Market to see, a fun day with 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.

Sachimi:

Dear Matthew-san, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was great fun for me as well. I am happy that you liked the place we visited. Please come back to Japan again and I hope to see you in the future! Thank you again and best regards, sachimi.

“ Sachimi's tour was the highlight of our vacation! ”

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:

Dear Chris-san, Thank you very much for your great review. It was really my pleasure to meet you all and I also enjoyed spending time with you in Tsukiji and Asakusa. I hope you will come back to Japan and see you again! Thank you & best regards Sachimi

“ A wonderful Day with Sachimi! ”

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 ... read more

Sachimi:

Dear Stephanie, Thank you so much for your kind review! It was great pleasure for me as well to spend a day with you in Kawagoe town and I am glad you liked the tour; Kitain temple, eel lunch and others. I am looking foward to meeting you again in near future!

“ Best tour with Sachimi in Tokyo ”

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.

Sachimi:

Dear Sharon Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour with me. It was very much enjoyable to talk and walk with you all! I believe you enjoyed whole stay in Japan. I hope to see you again in the future!! Thank you again!

“ A learning experience ”

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.

Sachimi:

Dear Nelson-san Thank you very much for your nice review! It was pleasure to meet you. I enjoyed walking around and chatting with you. I am looking foward to meeting you and Grace-san again on your next visit! Thank you very much again.
