We had a fantastic day with Atsuko. Very personable, knowledgeable and helpful.
Thank you for your great reviw and thank you for sharing your precious time with me yesterday. Hope you have a wonderful time in Kyoto and Nozawa onsen to ski.
Atsuko was very professional and on time. She also was very courteous and accommodating and did not mind if I took some extra time exploring at some locations. Her English is fluent and I did not have any trouble understanding at all. She is also prompt with her responses and answered all questions that I had. In addition, I did not have to spend any extras for transportation as she had her own subway pass. I would definitely request for Atsuko on my next Tokyo visit.
Thank you for your great reviw Robert and thank you for sharing your precious time with me. I was suprised that you know many japanese words especially seafood.

In that time I've just back from hawaii and really miss hawaii then we met you. I was so happy to talk with you. Thank you for beautiful card. Right now you are in Kyoto please enjoy rest of your stay in Japan. Hope you have a memorable and a wonderful time here in Japan.
Atsuko met me and my son in our hotel lobby, she was on time and very friendly. She helped us figure out the train system and took us to the areas that we wanted to go. I mentioned I was interested in the Shibuya crossing and she added the location to our itinerary. During our tour, my son lost one of the anime books he purchased, so she made an extra stop so I could purchase another book for him.I would definitely use her as a tour guide the next time I'm in Tokyo.
Thank you for wonderful review Regina! It was great time to be with you and your son. I'm so glad that you liked my tour. Thank you for shareing your precious time with me in Tokyo.I hope to see you again!!
