“ Wonderful guide ”

We recently had the pleasure of Motoko's guidance on our free day in Tokyo. She was a great guide and showed us some wonderful sites. Her command of English was very good and made it very easy for my wife and I to communicate with the locals. I would recommend her very highly. We had a great day.

“ Fantastic tour with Motoko ”

We really enjoyed our tour with Motoko exploring Tokyo. Her knowledge about the places that we visited was outstanding. We were able to see all the places we wanted to see and Motoko was very flexible about the places to see during the tour. The restaurant we had lunch was fantasic and very enjoyable. Overall Motoko is a fantastic tour guide that really made us appriciate the Japanese culture. The tour also gave us the confidence to use the Tokyo subway system which we found to be reasonably easy once we were shown how to use it. We would highly recommend Motoko if you are visiting Japan and Tokyo especially for the first time.

“ Meiji Shrine and Harajuku ”

Thank you Motoko for a fun and informative tour experience. Your guidance around Meiji Jingu was outstanding, we came away understanding a lot more about Japanese history and beliefs. Also really appreciated you detouring to the ginko tree avenue and then taking us to the rugby union game at end of tour. See you next time!

“ Great Tour with Motoko ”

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers visiting Japan for the first time. Motoko met us at our hotel and our private day tour began. We visited Asakusa, Akihabara, an Owl cafe, and Yanaka. Before entering the shrine, Motoko showed us how to properly wash our hands and purify ourselves. She also explained the history and the architecture of the shrine that we visited. Next, we headed to Akihabara where our son spent time browsing through the anime stores. Motoko was very patient as she helped to find other anime stores in search of specific items that our son wanted. Our visit to the Owl café was very unique and unexpected. Here, we were able to spend time with owls perched on your arm and where you can gently stroke their heads. I don't think you can get close and personal with these animals anywhere else! Motoko also suggested a nice place for us to eat lunch. We had a great lunch, eating tonkatsu, which was delicious. Our day ended with a visit to Yanaka, seeing a different side of the Tokyo area, a slower side. We saw the burial site of the last shogun as explained to us by Motoko. Throughout the tour, Motoko would ensure that we were okay since it was hot and humid. We used public transportation and learned how efficient and clean it is. We learned a lot with her and thoroughly enjoyed our day of sightseeing and experiencing Tokyo. She would ensure that everyone had a great time, which we did. We would highly recommend her for any tours.

“ Visiting Tokyo with Motoko. ”

I enjoyed my time with Motoko exploring Tokyo. Before meeting, Motoko had planned out in what order we would see the places I had picked out. She was very knowledgeable about the places that we visited. I have many food allergies, and Mokoto gave me restaurant options and also the option to buy food at the 7/11. We had a picnic lunch in one of the parks near Harajuku. I was able to see all the places I wanted to see and I had an amazing tour guide who knew a lot of facts about her city. Motoko knew all the good places to stop and visit at each of our stops on the tour. I would highly recommend Motoko for your visit to Japan and Tokyo!

“ Motoko is AWESOME!!! ”

We had a private day tour with Motoko two days ago. From her prompt pick up at our slightly off the beaten path accommodation to the drop off 8 hours later, she was the consummate professional. Our first stop was the Tujuki fish markets for an traditional Japanese omlette breakfast and we were lucky enough (during Gold week celebrations) to witness at $6000 AUD tuna being sliced. We headed along to The Imperial palace gardens full of history of Shogun and Samurai for an informative and delightful walk. In the afternoon we headed to Yanaka (old town) which was an amazing traditional place and a lovely change from the bustle of Tokyo city centre. We visited galleries and traditional shops and topped it all off with a delicious ice cream . We were already familiar with the metro train system, but Motoko gave us some great tips . Motoko even went above and beyond to book us into a tour the Next day for a trip to Mt Fuji (Through another respected company) . She is a delight! We will recommend her and Tripple Lights to all our friends travelling to Tokyo. Thank you Motoko

“ Introduction to Tokyo ”

We had a fabulous day with Motoko - she was very knowledgable and showed us the main tourist sites as well as fitting in other places we wanted to visit and shopping we wanted to do. She was very helpful and gave us lots of information on what else to see and showed us how to use the tube and trains. We had a fabulous day - I would definitely recommend Motoko for anyone want a great day out!!
