We went to the skytree, Gonzaga district and saw a Kabuki play.
Thank you for giving me the high praise, Jerryl. You all are so good walkers that we could complete all the spots we planned in the two days. I really appreciate it. Did your grandkids enjoy the Kabuki play? Even if it's too difficult for them to understand, that experience gives them better understanding of Japanese tradition and culture, I think. I know you had a great travel throughout Japan. Please rest well when you make it home. I'd be happy if you'd remember me and come back to me someday. Please stay in shape.
To maximize our limited time in Tokyo, we booked Mayumi, and we're very glad we did. Mayumi recommended the "must see" things based on our interests. We loved getting around via the Tokyo subway system; with her help it couldn't have been easier. Mayumi was well spoken, well informed and interested in making sure we saw and did the things that were important to us.
Thank you for your kind review, Scott. I well remember how beautiful that day was. I can say it was not only beautiful but full of blessings. We saw the precious portable shrines ready to be carried out for the festival, and traditional wedding ceremony in Asakusa Shrine. The pretty yellow flowers in the flower field in Hama-rikyu gardens we saw are almost over now. Japan Meteorological Agency finally declared the cherry blossom flowering on March 21, but it takes about 10 days to be in full bloom. I'm really happy you thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful spring day with me. Thank you again for every kindness you showed me during the tour. I'm always ready to help you appreciate various attractions in Japan. Please ask me anything anytime you want to.
Mayumi picked us up at the hotel and brought us to Hakone, where we had a lovely day including cable cars and pirate ship. It was a lovely day and Mayumi took care of everything, it was a great start to our trip to Japan. Thank you Mayumi!
Hi Nicole, thank you for posting a great review. It was certainly a lovely day though the weather has been changeable these days. I've not seen more beautiful Mt Fuji since then.Thanks to your cooperation like you booked the bullet train for everyone including me in advance, everything went so smoothly and we could enjoy must-sees of Hakone without rush in the 8-hour tour from Tokyo. I really appreciate it. As you are a skillful traveler, I'd like to guide you to hidden scenic spots next time. Looking forward to doing the tour in the near future!
Mayumi was great as a tour guide! Her spoken English is excellent. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to see Tokyo. Before we met, she had researched the places and routes. We discussed various ideas of where to visit before settling on a good itinerary. On the day, she gave us a lot of insight into the historical and cultural aspects of the places we were visiting. There were some little details we loved, like taking us to a good little shop that sells pancakes with bean paste. We went back to our hotel tired but having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you so much for your kind and detailed review, Matthew. As you shared your idea well in advance, I could do my homework so as not to waste time. I'm happy to know you really enjoyed the tour with me. Let's do somewhere off the beaten path next time. Please say hello to Monica❣️See you again!
Although our day in Tokyo was a rainy one, that didn’t hinder Mayumi from being an amazing guide! She took took us all around, from shrines, temples, to fish markets and Harajuku fashion! Our day tour had a wonderful mix of what the city had to offer, and with Mayumi sharing her knowledge of each place, we truly appreciated Tokyo. Also, we had spur of the moment souvenir requests (from soccer apparel to Hello Kitty) and she knew exactly where to take us. She even helped us out with all of our travel needs the next few days we were in Japan- from assisting in booking our Shinkansen to/from Kyoto/Osaka to showing us New Yorkers how to navigate the subways. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide
Hi, Nicole! Thank you so much for writing a great review. Your words remind me of the wonderful day we spent together. I'd never forget your big smile when taking a picture with the Hello Kitty ribbon on your head:) Exactly, it was a rainy day, but we shared a lot of interesting experiences. I really appreciate it. I'm happy to have helped make your travel easier. I can well imagine you fully enjoyed Kyoto and Osaka too. I'm looking forward to planning your next adventure together again. Thank you!!!
