“ Amazing Day in Tochigi ”

We had an amazing time in Tochigi with Yoko (her hometown). My husband and I were in Tokyo for our honeymoon and when I think of Tokyo in the winter, I think of one thing: strawberry season! And having done a homestay in Tochigi during my student years, I thought, “What better way to introduce Japanese strawberries to my husband than to bring him to a farm for all you can eat strawberry picking—and not just any strawberries, but the ultra rare Tochihime, known to be the sweetest and juiciest strawberry in Japan... so delicate that it can only be eaten in Tochigi itself?” However, it has been some time since my homestay so I found Yoko-san online who helped make it all happen (Big plus: Tochigi is her hometown)! It was a great escape from Tokyo for a day and totally worth it as we were also... read more

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Felicity-san! I had a lovely time with you and your husband in Tochigi. Thank you for having me as your guide. I was happy to have helped you explore Tochigi on the tour as a part of your honeymoon. Tochigi is my home prefecture, but actually the places we visited were new to me. Furthermore I wasn't aware of Tochihime though Tochigi is famous for strawberries production. I learned from you a lot about my home prefecture! I'm grateful that you gave me such a great opportunity. I was impressed with your deep knowledge about Japan and culture, also your Japanese speaking skills. I hope you had a lovely honeymoon in Japan. I hope I can see you again in the near future. I hope both of you share a long and happy life together.

“ Kamakura highlights ”

We had such a lovely day with Yoko. She met us at the Yokohama Cruise Terminal and took us by train to Kamakura. She was very knowledgable and taught us alot about Japanese customs. We got to see alot more than we had planned which was a nice surprise. We had a lovely traditional Japanese lunch and we got back to the ship with time to spare so this took any stress away. Yoko went out of her way to accomodate our wishes.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for such a lovely review, Nicola! I had a lovely day with both of you in Kamakura. It was a very beautiful day and I was very glad that we could go to more places than we had planned. Thank you so much for your cooperation. Talking with you was fun and interesting, and I was pleased to have some similarities with you. I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope both of you come to Tokyo again in the near future and I can see you then.

“ Beautiful day in Japan with Yoko ”

Our party of four adults were privileged to spend the day with Yoko. This was our first time to visit Japan and we set up a tour through TripleLights to get an understanding of the city of Tokyo and to help us navigate the subway system. We couldn’t have been more pleased with Yoko’s wonderful assistance in caring for us as we traveled all over Tokyo with her expert guidance. Her knowledge of the Japanese culture and history was invaluable to getting to know the people of Japan. I highly recommend starting you trip this and way with Yoko as your guide.

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your lovely review, Robert! I had a lovely day with all of you. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. That was a beautiful day after rainy days, I was pleased to help you explore Tokyo. We laughed a lot and I learned something new from you, which was memorable for me. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I hope you have enjoyed staying in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again and see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey.

“ Excellent Guide ”

Yoko is a friendly and soft spoken person, She has a happy disposition. We are very happy and thankful that she allowed us to changed our Itinerary from Kamakura to Ashikaga 2 days prior our trip. And we did not regret it! Ashikaga is a beautiful place. Very relaxing and peaceful. We love both Ashikaga Gakko and Ashikaga Flower Park. Yoko’s english is also very good. We also learned that it is her first time to have a tour on Ashikaga that is not on a peak season and we are her first client for her Nikko tour! We are overwhelmed! Both tours are well planned and organized. I would highly recommend you to hire Yoko’s services if you have plan to go to Nikko, I can guarantee that you will be in good hands! I will surely recommend you to my friends and relatives! Thank You for taking ca... read more

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review, Tessa! I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tours with me. Ashikaga is my hometown, so actually I was happy to hear that you would like to go to Ashikaga. Though the wisterias were over, we enjoyed a lot of beautiful flowers, especially roses are very beautiful. Taking my clients to Nikko was my first time, so honestly I was wondering if you could enjoy Nikko during our tour, but I was glad that everything went well. Thank you for all of your cooperation. Talking with you and your friends were really interesting and inspiring to me. I'm grateful for your kindness. Thank you again for having me as your guide. I hope I can see you again in the near future.

“ So happy we found Yoko! ”

We booked Yoko for a half day tour our first day in Tokyo and so glad we found her. She picked us up in the lobby of our hotel right on time and took us everywhere we asked her to see. We had a fantastic sushi lunch and really enjoyed her company. Yoko speaks wonderful English and taught us so much about Tokyo and Japan.

“ Fantastic Day In Tokyo ”

Whatever I say here about our experience with Yoko in Tokyo will not do her justice. She is a wonderful guide and we enjoyed every minute. She was extremely attentive and wasnt even bothered by our 10 year olds attack with questions. She was very knowledgable about the areas, moreso than we expected. Although she is listed here as "licensed" in English - We would have classifiied her as fluent. We had absolutely no trouble communicating. Our only regret is we would have like to have her for the entire trip. She is a pleasure to tour with and will make your trip special. Do not hesitate to lock her in ASAP as she is (and deserves to be) in high demand. Thank you, Yoko, for making our visit extra special.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a great review, VIRGIL! I'm glad to hear that the tour might have met your expectations. I also had a lovely time with all of you. Though some of the questions from your son were tough for me to answer, but definitely interesting and fun! Both of your sons are smart and lovely. All of you are very nice and warm, so I felt as if I had spent a time with my good friends. There are a lot of beautiful places in Japan. I hope all of you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then.

“ Japanese gardens and kaiseki ryori lunch ”

I would highly recommend Yoko as a guide. Her understanding of English is very good and she is also very considerate. She paid careful attention to my particular interests and needs in planning our day’s tour well in advance, listening thoughtfully and patiently answering questions that made it easy to relax and enjoy time at each location we visited without feeling rushed. As well as information, she offered insight into aspects of Japanese culture, tradition and way of life in context that helped deepen my understanding and appreciation. She is also a charming and delightful companion with a great sense of humour. It felt more like making and talking with a friend, reflecting the true nature of hospitality for a foreign tourist.

I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Talking with you was really interesting and fun to me. Your deep knowledge about Japan impressed me a lot. I had a lovely time strolling the gardens with you. Thank you so much for giving me such a great opportunity. I hope you have a lovely journey in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again in the near future and hope to see you then. Watashi mo tanoshikatta desu! Arigatou gozaimashita.

“ Yoko is an incredible tour guide and wonderful person. ”

My wife and I not only feel that we got to see all of the sites of Tokyo that we had requested and more but that we also make an exceptional new friend. Yoko is such a wonderful guide and person. Over the years, we have had the good fortune of traveling to many wonderful parts of the world and try to book at least one day with a guide to see more of an area and make sure we get to see the most important sites of the area we’re visiting. We both felt that Yoko was the BEST guide we have ever experienced. Her English is exceptional and she is such a pleasant person to spend time with. We really hated to see our time together come to an end. If you are visiting Tokyo for the 1st time, we highly recommend at least one day with Yoko. The other advantage is that after time with her, the ma... read more

“ Yoko showed me the beautiful sights in real Tokyo ”

I requested to see the non-tourist sights. We started with a quick elevator ride to the observatory deck at the government building. Yoko and walked 8.5 miles around such classic cultural areas as Shinjuku, Yanaka area, and Kagurazaka area. Shinjuku - Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (45th floor) to see a beautiful view of Tokyo and Mt.Fuji! Omoide Yokocho alley which has a lot of small restaurants, Kabuki-cho, one of the most popular entertainment areas in Tokyo which has a lot of bars, restaurants and Karaoke shop and Godzilla on a top of a tall building. Food hall at Isetan department store. Tokyo station area - viewing Tokyo Station building and Tokyo station area from Marunouchi Building. Having lunch at Ippudo ramen restaurant.

Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a wonderful review, Jim! I hope you took a lot of beautiful photos during our tour.

“ Half day in Tokyo ”

Half day tour of Tokyo, Nov 10, 2018. Yoko took us to a beautiful park in the heart of the city (Hama-rkyu gardens) then on a tour of the fish market and for a Sushi lunch. We also went up in a tall building for a view of the city. Yoko is a very nice lady and great guide. Price as reasonable for service provided. Highly recommended.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting a great review, Jim! It was a really beautiful day and I had a lovely time with you and your wife. I hope you went to the Yokohama cruise port smoothly after we finished the tour. Thank you for having me as your guide. I hope you had a wonderful journey in Japan. Tokyo has a lot of attractive places other than the places we visited. I hope both of you come to Tokyo again in the near future and see you then.

“ Great customized tour ”

We had requested a tour which didn’t hit the big sites but rather focused on some neighbourhoods. Yoko really delivered for us. We had a varied day seeing a variety of areas to give us a better feel for life in Tokyo. We found Yoko to be responsive to our requests both before and during the tour. She was quite informative and we learned a lot about the city and daily life. Her English is fine and she has a great sense of humour. Most importantly, she understood us and our interests. We would definitely want Yoko to guide us again should we return to Tokyo and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends should they need a guide in Tokyo. Thanks Yoko.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a fabulous review, Jonathan! I'm very glad to hear that the tour met your expectations. The tour was a really good opportunity for me, thank you.

We spent a day and a half with Yoko and felt like we got to see all the highlights of the city. She took us to shrines, gardens, fascinating neighborhoods, the fish market and even on a boat tour. We could never have accomplished this on our own. Great tour!

“ Totally would recommend Yoko and Triple Lights. Wonderful day with an excellent guide, covered a lot with quite a variety ”

I was so pleased with my arrangement and experience with Yoko San. We had a previous 2 days with another wonderful guide, so had seen a few places already. Yoko San took us back to Asakusa at my request as my partner had just arrived. I was thrilled that we saw a slightly different aspect of Asakusa, including a view looking down to the markets and Sensoji Temple. After visiting the Imperial Palace grounds we ( including 17 yo son who enjoyed the guided experience a lot too) had an absolutely delectable ramen meal for lunch in Maranouchi, thanks to Yoko’s excellent recommendation! Yoko San showed us a great viewing spot to look over the vast Tokyo Station. We were lucky to enjoy the Meiji Shrine ( seeing a wedding party was a bonus) and the fabulous iris gardens in full bloom.

“ Wonderful Tour of Ashikaga ”

It was such a lovely day, we had a great time with Yoko-san showing us around Ashikaga Gakko, Bannaji Temple and Ashikaga Flower Park. Yoko-san took care of the express train reservations, guiding us from Tokyo Metro to Tobu Line, everything went smoothly. Both my husband and I are so happy we made a new friend with Yoko-san, it was like having a friend showing us her hometown. Even though we were not able to view the wisteria flowers in full bloom at the flower park, we still had a great time visiting the park. Yoko-san's attention to details is very impressive, we highly recommend her as a private guide for your next trip to Tokyo.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for your lovely review, Elaine-san! Though we missed the opportunity to see the beautiful wisteria at Ashikaga Flower Park, we had a great time there viewing a variety of roses and other beautiful flowers. Actually that was my first time to see the roses in the park and was a lovely opportunity for me. Thank you. Both of you are very nice so that I felt as if I had been an old friend of you. Talking about many things with you are really interesting and fun to me. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then.

“ Day trip from Tokyo to Kamakura ”

Yoko was a lovely guide for my family of 5 including my two children ages 7 and 8 and my father. She was incredibly sweet and patient with us as we managed the trains, buses and crowds. We travelled when the Cherry Blossoms were blooming so it was more crowded then usual. The Great Buddha at Kamakura is quite a site. We enjoyed the shrines, some sesame ice cream and other Japanese treats. Yoko helped us every step of the way with shopping, payment, teaching us things. It was a very nice day. Then she helped us navigate out evening plans and answered questions for our subsequent adventures. Having Yoko as a guide made visiting Kamakura from Tokyo much easier. There are buses, trains and walking to navigate and it would have been much more difficult to figure out without a guide. Yoko made... read more

Thank you so much for your warm review, Vicki. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed exploring Kamakura on the day.

I had booked a trip to Kamakura for 3 people and I ended up getting sick last minute. Yoko took my elderly parents who are in their 70s to Kamakura on her own and treated them so kindly and slowed down the pace of the tour for them. Was so glad that we had Yoko as a guide!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Manisha! I'm very sorry I couldn't show you around Kamakura, but I'm glad that your parents enjoyed the time in Kamakura on the day.

“ Wonderful experience ”

Yoko made the trip to Kamakura truly wonderful and memorable. Yoko is friendly, kind and considerate. She shared many interesting information about the places we visited. She also brought us to one of her favorite restaurants in Kamakura for boiled baby sardines (delicious!), fresh sashimi and my favorite tempura soba. She was also very helpful in recommending interesting places to visit and good kaiseki restaurants in Tokyo.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for your warm review, Daryl! I hope you have enjoyed your stay in Tokyo. I had a lovely time with both of you. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the lunch at my favorite restaurant in Kamakura! Basically I'm interested in eating various cuisines, especially Japanese cuisines are my favorite.

“ Kamakura Highlights ”

Yoko spoke beautiful English. She was very easy to understand. Although the weather was terrible, we went to see the big Buddha. She had a great deal of knowledge to tell us about this area and why the Buddha were so important. We were delighted to spend half the day with her and would have enjoyed more except for the torrential rain that was falling down. We would recommend her to anyone who wants to go to Kamakura. She even gave us a momento of Japan at the end of our trip.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a warm review, Lynn. It was a very cold day with the pouring rain and I'm very sorry the weather made us give up exploring Kamakura in the middle of our tour. Such a bad weather in Kamakura was my first time - I hope you didn't catch a cold after the tour. I'm grateful for your warm words to me and the tour. I hope you had a memorable stay in Japan. Thank you so much for having me as your guide and please take good care of yourself.

Yoko took me and my family on a unforgettable one day tour through Tokyo. As this was our first trip to Tokyo, Yoko also provided us with instructions on how to find our way in Tokyo which was very helpful throughout our stay. She met us at the hotel and showed us some wonderful shrines and shopping areas. Yoko is a wonderful person who is very knowledgeable about Japanese customs and traditions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who plans to visit Tokyo.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for your lovely review, Roel! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour on the day. I also had a lovely time with you and your family.

“ Excellent tour! ”

We are a family of 4, with 2 teenagers on our first trip to Japan. Yoko met us at our hotel and our full day tour began. We first went to the Tsukiji fish market and was amazed at the variety and freshness of seafood and produce in Japan. We sampled the varied foods in the market, eating mochi, Japanese omelet, onigiri, and sushi, which were all very good. Yoko explained all of the items that were unfamiliar to us. After, she took us to the top of a building's observatory to view Tokyo Bay and our amazing surroundings. She also took us to the Hama-Rikyu Gardens. As expected, the garden was beautiful. We then had lunch at a noodle restaurant and ate cold soba noodles, which was very refreshing, especially on a hot day. We then went shopping in Ginza.

Exploring the stationery shop in Ginza with you was also fun to me and I was very happy to see that all of your family were excited to find and buy lovely things there. Talking to you and your family was fun and interesting. I'm grateful for all of your thoughtfulness. I hope you enjoyed Kyoto.

“ Tokyo all day tour ”

This was by far the best thing I did. Having a private tour was informative and amazingly fun. Yoko made it fun and exciting. She was very sweet and kind and a good sense of humor. She knew a lot about the areas and the history. Navigation was a breeze. Anything you were unsure about she would kindly take you step by step. We got to eat at a very nice ramen restaurant. In the end it felt more like a close friend taking us around then a guide which made it more fun and comfortable. I highly recommend doing a tour. And a bonus with Yoko as your tour guide. Thank you again Yoko for the best tour.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for your sweet review, Cyrus! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I had a lovely time with you, your brother and your friends. It was the hottest day in Tokyo, so actually I was a little worried if we could go to all the places you're interested in. But we made it! Thank you so much for your cooperation. All of you are very nice - it was fun to be with you. I'm grateful for all of your kindness and thoughtfulness. I hope you enjoy the rest of your journey in Japan.

I opted for the Harajuku, Meiji Shrine and Shibuya tour. A six hour tour. From the moment I booked with Yoko, she was in constant communication with me. Being it the first time out in Tokyo, I was looking for someone who was well versed and knowledgable with the area. I found that in Yoko. Her speaking English was also a plus. Made it easier to communicate and understand each other. The Shrine and history behind it was a marvel. She took me thru Takeshita Street which was a treat for me. I ended up at Out of this World shoe store. Btw..if you love unique shoes swing by there! Shibuya crossing was a spectacle. I would recommend and hire Yoko again when needed.

“ Visiting Kamakura with Yoko ”

I loved spending the day with Yoko in Kamakura. Before meeting, she had looked up a special train/bus pass for us to use when in Kamakura. At the different temples , Yoko knew about each one. We went to a really neat tea ceremony in the bamboo gardens. I have many food allergies and Yoko , looked up restaurants that I could eat at. She took me to a traditional Japanese Buddhist monk style restaurant where they would have food that I could eat as a gluten free vegetarian eater. It was the best meal I had in Japan.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review, Meira! I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed the tour in Kamakura. I also enjoyed the fabulous day with you. I was wondering if the lunch was fine with you - I'm very glad to hear the lunch (Shojin Ryori) was satisfactory to you. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness.

Yoko is a wonderful guide. She is very pleasant, cheerful, professional, and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the places we visited. We could not possibly have covered so many of the famous sights on our own as efficiently as Yoko guided us. She is very accommodating and we appreciate all her recommendations. Though we covered many places, we never felt rushed. Yoko took us to a famous Sushi place at Tsukiji Fish Market where we had a fabulous lunch. After the full day tour, she followed up to recommend a couple of shops near the hotel to shop for a few specific items we wanted to check out on our own. Yoko speaks excellent English and we had no problems communicating before and during the tour. We had a really fun and enjoyable day! Thank you for the memorable experience. read more

Yoko-san was a very good guide. She planned our tour so that we could cover the possible places with the limited time available. She even booked our train tickets in advance before our arrival. The only disappointment was that the flowers were not in full bloom at the Ashikaga flower park .

Thank you so much for posting a great review, Srinivasan-san. I was sorry that it was too early for the best season for the wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park. Usually around the end of April would be best season for the wisteria, but this year the wisteria started blooming later than usual, due to the unstable weather in early April.

Either way, I booked the “One day Tokyo” and “One day trip to Kamakura” tours and we thoroughly enjoyed both. With both tours we had the opportunity to see many shrines and temples (including Meiji Shrine, Sensoji Temple, Hokoku-ji temple and others) of which Yoko was very knowledgeable and able to share key historical information. Being able to drink Matcha tea with Japanese sweets while overlooking a bamboo garden at Hokoku-ji was the highlight of our trip to Kamakura (seeing the Great Buddha was awesome too).

However I'm glad to hear that the time in Hokoku-ji temple seemed to be a good memory for you. I enjoyed both tours in Tokyo and Kamakura with you. To tell the truth, I didn't want to say goodbye after the second trip and after that I miss both of you. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness.

Her very friendly and polite nature and desire to help made our tour excellent. She was also flexible and did everything she could to make our day in Tokyo a fun one! It's great sightseeing with a local and learning more about their culture. Thanks so much Yoko!

Yoko:

Dear Danielle, Thank you very much for taking your time to post a great review. Both of you and your husband are very nice so I enjoyed the day with you indeed. Thanks to you I learned about your country that I’ve never been. The photos you kindly showed me were really beautiful and I appreciate it so much. Someday I’d like to visit your country. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed exploring Tokyo. I hope in the near future you will come to Japan. I’m looking forward to seeing you again! Kind regards, Yoko

Our English speaking guide, Yoko, was very professional and friendly and was very flexible with our itinerary. Yoko showed us how easy it was to use the bus and subway, which cut our transportation cost down. Since we only had 4 hours, we wanted to get more shopping done since we had visited temples, gardens, etc on previous visits to Japan. Yoko accommodated us by taking us to shops where we purchased gifts for family and friends. We would highly recommend TripleLights to all our friends who travel to Japan!

Yoko:

Dear Lorraine, Thank you very much for taking your time to post a great review. All of you are so nice and friendly that I really enjoyed the day with you. I’m glad that you purchased gifts for your family and friends. I thought you experienced rush hour in Tokyo for the first time and you may think it was terrible. I really appreciate all of your patience and cooperation. I hope you’ll come to Tokyo again in the near future and am looking forward to seeing you and your husband. Kind regards, Yoko

We had a wonderful time exploring the city of Tokyo! Yoko was very accommodating and helpful with information. My husband and I were glad that we chose to do a private tour with Yoko instead of joining those big groups of city tours. By doing a private custom tour, we were able to see a lot and experience more of Tokyo in a limited time. After the tour, Yoko continued to provide us with a lot of information via email so my husband and I can continue to explore Tokyo on our own time. Thank you Yoko! Koki says hi :-)

Yoko:

Dear Mia, Thank you very much for taking your time to post a fabulous review. I enjoyed my time with both of you and that was really a lovely day to see beautiful cherry blossoms in Ueno Park. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the day and exploring Tokyo on your own after the day. Both of you are very nice and friendly. That was indeed memorable and enjoyable day for me. I really appreciate that. Please come to Japan again in the near future and I’m looking forward to seeing you and your husband, and of course lovely Koki! Warm regards, Yoko

Yoko is a very nice tour guide. Her English language skills are excellent and she knew Tokyo very well. We had a lovely day visiting gardens, temples and enjoyed a traditional tea ceremony. I recommend her for assisting you around Tokyo by public transportation.

Yoko:

Dear Kristine, Thank you very much for taking your time to post a great review. The day was cold and rainy, and I was afraid if all of you were tired after a long day. I didn’t expect your kind review, so I really appreciate it. All of you are so warm and lovely, that impressed me a lot. I hope you enjoyed Kyoto. Japan has various attractions, so I do hope you and your family will come back to Japan in the near future. I suppose you’re tired after the trip. Please take good care of yourself. Kind regards, Yoko

Yoko was an excellent guide. We would not have found our way without her. She took us to some amazing places, and explained about each place well in good English. We had a fantastic lunch at a place we would never have looked twice at - but the food was really tasty (and cheap). Thank you Yoko for a fabulous day out.

Yoko:

Dear Jo, Thank you so much for posting a great review. I had a wonderful day with you and your family. It was a great pleasure for me to take you to attractive places in Tokyo. I’m glad to hear that you like the lunch. I supposed that soy sauce ramen might not be popular in London, so actually I was afraid you didn’t like the taste. But I was really relieved to read your comment. I appreciate your generosity and all of your kindness. There are many attractive destinations and beautiful places in Japan. I hope you’ll come to Japan again in the near future and I’m looking forward to seeing you. Kind regards, Yoko

Hi Yoko, We truly appreciate all you did for us regarding our last minute change of tours for both days as well as your ability to accomadate our special requests. We thoroughly enjoyed your expertise. The tip you gave us regarding how to transfer 2 different subways in Kyoto was invaluable. We would definitely try to contact you for future tours when we get to see your beautiful country again. My wife is thinking about referring you to her coworker who may be interested in traveling to Tokyo in the near future.

Yoko:

Dear Cheng-i, ?Thank you very much for taking your time to post a great review. I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed Tokyo and I’m relieved to hear that you didn't get lost in Kyoto. I really enjoyed the 2 days with you and your family and I’m very impressed with all of your thoughtfulness. Thank you very much for giving me such a great opportunity. I hope you’ll come to Japan again in the near future and I'm looking forward to seeing all of your family again. Yoko
