What can I say except what a fantastic person to show you the sights of Tokyo!! Made us a ease from the moment that we meet at our hotel to the time when Atsuko left us at Shinjuku station. Very knowledgable and informative, helped us with buying out metro card, took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch and really crammed in a lot into the 6 hour tour, more than we would have done on our own. Would definitely recommend as a guide 100%....

Atsuko is charming and knows Tokyo as a local. The highlight for me was walking through the former gardens of an imperial palace and seeing modern Tokyo in the background at every direction.
