“ Amazing time and a perfect guide ”

Arigato Chiaki-san! We had such an amazing time these two days with Chiaki-san. She was a perfect guide and we loved spending time with here and enjoyed the various locations that she took us to. She provided us with a detailed schedule and also gave us perfect directions to get from Haneda airport to our Asakusa hotel. She knew all the in-and-outs of the public transport to shortcuts to costs. She was always on time and ensured we spent ample time at our sightseeing spots. At the same time, she was cognizant of the time. Both our daughters immediately gelled with her. She was caring and she became part of our family in those two days. She also took us to various food spots and it was all delicious. It was a great experience and we are so glad and honored that we met Chiaki-san and spent t... read more

Chiaki:

Arigato Mahesh-san, for your warm and detailed review! I’m honored and happy that I was selected to be your guide and family member in Japan. Your two girls are lovely just like their names “shining stars” and I enjoyed being with them. I miss all of you! Arigato for the happy two days. I'm looking for the next opportunity to see you again!

“ Wonderful tour! I would give 6 stars if I could! ”

This was our first trip to Tokyo and my wife and I wanted one of our first experiences to be one where we could ease into the new setting. We booked a brief tour with Chiaki due to her very favorable ratings and we were absolutely not disappointed! She was very kind, patient, and informative as she took us around the Tsukiji Outer Market and Ginza areas, often pausing for my wife and I to enjoy things to eat, take pictures, and take in the sights. We never felt rushed and we experienced quite a lot in the few hours we spent together. She was also very informative and provided some historical commentary where it was appropriate. Furthermore, Chiaki was incredibly helpful in giving us useful practical tips regarding everyday things like subway/bus travel, payment methods, and etiquette. Our ... read more

Chiaki:

Thank you Edward for your excellent review! I was really happy guiding such a brilliant and nice couple like you. We had great time and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope you and Anh are having wonderful and relaxing time in Japan before going back home to your busy days. Thank you again and take care!

I had a lovely relaxing afternoon with Chiaki; it was like spending time with a friend. Chiaki is so knowledgeable and helped me to navigate Tokyo. She arrives well prepared but is also happy to change the itinerary as you go along, I shall certainly book another tour with Chiaki when I am next in Tokyo. Highly recommend.

Chiaki:

Dear Karen, thank you for your kind review! You must be going back to your lovely 400 year old home now. I hope you have safe and smooth trip and am looking forward to seeing you in Japan again, having good time exchanging interesting conversations about the business environment. Thank you again!

“ Tokyo Tour With Chiaki ”

The tour with Chiaki was awesome! She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. I was completely overwhelmed by getting around by train in Tokyo and she completely taught me within an hour or so. After that I confidently could get anywhere in Tokyo. Would highly recommend booking a tour with Chiaki.

Chiaki:

Konnichiwa Brooks! Arigato for your great review! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and the transportation experience. I had many memorable moments with you, especially when you tried various Japanese food. It was fun because each time you told me you were excited. Arigato again and I hope you continue your trip safely and smoothly!

“ Tokyo with Chiaki! ”

Chiaki did a wonderful job of guiding my Mother, daughter and me around Tokyo. She carefully created an itinerary according to our requests and was very accommodating of our particular needs. My Mother is 80 and my daughter is 15 and Chiaki did a great job of pacing our tours for both of them. We were able to see so many traditional and modern aspects of Tokyo. My mother is also a vegetarian and Chiaki was effortlessly able to locate delicious meals for her. Thank you Chiaki!!!!!

Chiaki:

Dear Samantha, thank you for your great comment! I had wonderful days with you and your family. You are a very curious person, interested in many different things. And your mother is amazingly healthy! I hope you go back home safely. Thank you again and take care!

“ A delightful guiding experience! ”

Being first-timers in Tokyo and Japan, I decided to hire a guide for basically orientation reasons, and efficient use of our time. After a few email exchanges with Chiaki to set the itinerary, my wife and I duly met her at our hotel at the allotted time. After taking a few minutes to confirm and adjust our plan, we then hit the road, using a mixture of walking and subway travel. Without going into detail, we nailed every single thing that we wanted to do and see during our 8 hour engagement, and at a fairly easy pace. Chiaki also gave us some very valuable insights on subway and JR Train services that have already paid off for us as this review is being written. So all in all, a great experience with Chiaki! If I had to summarize, I would say she is organized, efficient, flex... read more

Chiaki:

Thank you Marcus, for your excellent comment! It encourages me a lot. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. It was a joyful day for me, too! Especially being with your lovely wife was my pleasure. She was so charming and interested in almost anything. I hope you travel through Japan safely and smoothly. Please say hello to Irene.

“ Fun & Relaxing ”

My wife Lenda and I really enjoyed our day with Chiaki. Chiaki was very attentive and flexible as we planned our activities for the day. We were both a little tired and sore from walking many miles the previous day. Chiaki found every elevator and escalator in the train and subway stations - that helped! Thanks Chiaki for a memorable and enjoyable day. Dave & Lenda Goulding Cary, North Carolina

Chiaki:

Dear Dave, thank you for your great review! I’m glad to hear that you and Lenda liked the day. I started reading your son’s book and it is exciting! It shows me the professional works of the people in Japanese food industry and I’m proud of them. I hope you enjoy your stay in Japan and go back home safely. Please say thank you to Lenda!

“ Our day tour with the lovely Chiaki was the highlight of our visit to Tokyo ”

We could not have wished for a more delightful lady to be our guide for our day tour of Tokyo. With Chiaki we saw and learnt so much about Tokyo. She guided us on the Metro and included all we had requested to see and more. She must be the best guide in Tokyo. We are sad to have to say goodbye. Thank you so much Chiaki. Pam and David

Chiaki:

Thank you Pam! Thank you David! For the wonderful day we spent together. You are so sweet to give me such a nice comment. I’m glad to know that you enjoyed Tokyo and the cruise and went back home safely. Take care and come back to enjoy Japan again!

“ Great 6 hour tour in Tokyo ”

Chiaki is a very kind person. My wife and I enjoyed a 6 hour tour in Tokyo with her. She collected us at our hotel and had already prepared a great itinerary for the day. She helped us to get familiar with the metro and rail system and arranged travel cards for us. Our visit covered markets, shopping, temples, shrines and gardens. It was a super way to get a quick view of Tokyo and it’s life. Chiaki was wonderful company and was happy to have a chat about any topic with her. We would recommend her to any visitor group.

Chiaki:

Dear Pat, thank you for your excellent review. I’m really glad to hear you liked the tour. I had such a great time with a nice couple like you, always having interesting and pleasant conversations. I hope you will enjoy the rugby games then try to eat sushi! Please visit Japan again someday. Thank you again and take care!

“ Wonderful and Relaxing Tour ”

Chiaki is a very lively and fun guide! We visited the Metropolitan Building and saw the view of Shinjuku from the observation area and saw guests voluntarily playing a piano that was present there. It was a wonderful experience! We visited a variety of stores and had an amazing lunch. Chiaki provided us with a lot of advice in regard to navigating around the city, if we decide to travel on our own in the future. You will feel as though you’re traveling with a friend. Chiaki is an amazing guide and we definitely recommend her!

Chiaki:

Thank you Ellen for your wonderful comment! It was a great day and I also felt like traveling with my friend. You are such a pleasant person to be with. And I love the dolls you made. They are cute! I hope you enjoy the days in Japan and safely go back home. Please say hello to Elliot. Thank you again!

“ Loved our day with Chiaki! ”

I cannot say enough about Chiaki. She was prepared, ready for our full schedule, kind and made sure we had a great day. Without her assistance we would have had a very different experience in our first day. She was flexible with small changes we made and willing to offer suggestions as well. Highly recommend her!

Chiaki:

Dear Davena, Thank you so much for your warm review! I was very happy to be with you and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. I found out that visiting Takeshita Street with active young ladies is a great pleasure! I hope you spend your time in Japan smoothly and happily and go back home safely. Wish I can see you in your future visit! Thank you again!

“ An Excellent Day ”

It was a rainy day but Chiaki made it a great day. She was patient with my 2 young girls and took the time to explain many things to my 11 year old who asked a ton of questions. Chiaki was flexible and had a long list of possible things to do depending on the weather conditions. She was an excellent guide who I’d recommend to anyone.

Chiaki:

Thank you Michael, for your wonderful comment! Although it was rainy, we had a great day and I enjoyed every moment with you and your beautiful family. Your daughters are so cute and active that they remind me my happy days traveling with young kids. I also had a great time talking with your wife. I hope you enjoy your long vacation in Japan and Canada and go back home safely. Thank you again!

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Chiaki, she was very flexible and went above and beyond to fulfill my needs, she helped me with my belongings during my hotel to hotel transfer Which she was not assigned to. She is very trustworthy and an absolutely fabulous guide. I will hire her any day.

Chiaki:

Thank you so much for your excellent review, Chowdhury! I really enjoyed the days with you. Even we couldn't see the summit of Mt. Fuji, we spent a beautiful day in Kawaguchiko area. The trees were so fresh and green. I hope you have a good rest at home and visit Tokyo again in the near future with your family. Thank you again and please take care!

“ Best day in Tokyo ”

I honestly can't thank Chiaki enough! She met me at my hotel and greeted me with a big smile. She gave me a few options and we then embarked on our journey by foot. She was kind enough to show me how to buy train tickets and where to go to use them. I lost my ticket at one stage and she was super helpful. We went to temples, ate Takoyaki and Udon, went to a fish market, Sensoji temple, a viewing deck, akihabara and many in between places. Chiaki took me under her wing. She directed me and made me feel comfortable at all times, just like a bestfriend. She was informative, knew all the great places to go and was warm and kind. She even helped me sort a few things out at my hotel. It was hard to say goodbye because we had such a great day together. I will never forget your kindness Chiaki :)... read more

Chiaki:

Thank you so much for your great review, Rachel! I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. It was a big pleasure for me to guide you. You are such a lovely person to be with. Yes, we ate delicious Japanese food and now we are the members of Takoyaki Ball Lover Club! Visiting a maid cafe in Akihabara was also fun. I hope you continue your trip to Osaka, Thailand and Singapore safely and smoothly. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. ARIGATOU GOZAIMASITA!

“ A DAY OF DISCOVERING SHITMACHI AND THE MODERN DAY OF TOKYO ”

We had an early start with Chiaki on April 13th, 2019 with Chiaki meeting us at our Hotel Lobby. A pleasant lady who took us around to see the sites of the old and the new parts of Tokyo. We explored the Sensoji Temple and market areas. Moved onto the Imperial palace where we explored the vast gardens and walked into modern Tokyo. Rikugien was off the beated track as i wanted to see this beautiful garden of poetry. Waka poets were inspired by this peaceful area. Chiaki seemed well versed in this area of poetry. Thank you Chiaki for showing us around and also the train system which we learned to master subsequently. Best wishes to you The Raux Family

Chiaki:

Thank you Kalani, for your review! I’m glad to know that you had enjoyable time in Japan. Rikugien became the favorite Japanese Garden for me, too, because we talk about the world of Japanese poetry and had wonderful time together. I’m also happy that my tour was helpful for getting accustomed to the complicated train system. Hope to meet you again in Japan! Best wishes to you, too!

“ An awesome day in Tokyo ”

We had a lovely day in Tokyo with Chiaka as our guide. She met us at our hotel, and introduced us to the Tokyo Subways, always be attentive that we didn't get separated. We visited several sites in the city and at each one she was very knowledgeable . Chiaka was a very personable and comfortable guide to be with. She gave us a lovely tour and insight into Tokyo. I would recommend her as your choice of guide when visiting this city.

Chiaki:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Emily! I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. After we parted, I was worried if your leg hurt badly. I had a great day with you and Maxine, too. I cannot forget two lovely ladies enjoying ice creams in Asakusa. I hope you will visit Japan and meet me again someday. Please be careful when you drive the long way!

A very happy and memorable day spent with Chiaki. She's well prepared, very warm and friendly. She took us to the sights that we wanted to go and gave us valuable information necessary for our trip in Tokyo.
