“ Excellent English fluent guide ”

Haruko was the perfect guide for our family. Her English skills are amazing- completely up to date vocabulary and expressions. She was very flexible in lingering where we were most interested and clearly knows her history. I would highly recommend her for your Tokyo tour. She's also a lovely person!

“ A memorable morning ”

My daughter and I only had two days in Tokyo and since we have always enjoyed private guides, I decided Haruko seemed like she would fit right into our "girls adventure". We found Haruko to be very fluent in English, personable, informative, and patient. She did more than she had to do. I mentioned that we were interested in Japanese fabrics so she took us to her custom kimono tailor and they were very welcoming, although they obviously were busy with customers, and the visit was fascinating. Thank you Haruko!

“ A great overview of Tokyo in just one day ”

Haruko provided a wonderfull experience for us and we were able to get a great overview of Tokyo in just one day. When we checked into our hotel there was a welcome card from Haruko confirming our meeting time for the following day, a very nice touch. I would highly recommend Haruko Regards David

“ Leaving the Ciity ”

Haruko met us at our hotel and we left for Lake Ashi where we cruised on the lake and enjoyed the cool mountain air. Haruko was a great guide and got us back and forth without any issues.

“ tsukiji fish market ”

Haruko was friendly and informative. As we walked around the market, she explained the history of the market. We could not have navigated the market; it was like a maze.

“ Such a lovey guide! ”

Haruko was the best. She had such great energy and knowledge of Tokyo. I was traveling with my 8 year old son so needed someone who was patient and flexible all of which she was. She was playful with my son and shared lots of interesting facts with us about her home. I highly recommend spending the day with Haruko. I will recommend her to family and friends for sure when they are in town.

“ Amazing tour guide - FANTASTIC! ”

Haruko is an excellent tour guide. Coming from the U.S. and only have three full days in Tokyo, we used her as our guide the first day. We knew we wanted to go to the fish market, but otherwise really left it up to her. She planned a great fun-filled day for us, seeing six different sites, and took us to a fabulous lunch and taught us how to use the Metro with ease. She is very knowledgeable about Tokyo and Japanese history as a whole. I would definitely recommend her!

she showed us the inner and outer market then after the tour of the market she took us to a sushi restaurant and was the best we have ever tasted. she also suggested an excellent restaurant for a kaiseki dinner . it is very easy to understand her as she has been to the united states and her english is excellent therefore we understood all her explanations and comments

“ Wonderful tour of fish market & trip to Asakusa ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our day touring with Haruko. Our group included my wife, our 20 year-old niece, and our 3.5 year old son. Haruko did a great job making things fun for our little guy, such as bringing bubbles to play with while we waited to board the water taxi at Hama-rikyu garden and finding a great shaved-ice spot at the fish market. Highly recommended.

“ Wonderful morning at the Tsujiki fish market! ”

Haruko is an outstanding guide and was extremely accommodating to our family’s needs. She was flexible and let us choose where we wanted to go and would recommend different shops and food stalls to stop. At each of these little vendors she encouraged us to try the different types of Japanese delicacies. We had sushi for breakfast and she took us to an amazing little restaurant that served the freshest sushi. Haruko was very engaging with our two boys (9 and 10) and knew how to make the experience fun for them as well. I even received an email from her afterwards with more interesting facts about the fish market, that she didn’t have time to explain to us on the tour. We really enjoyed our time with Haruko and are sure you will too - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

“ A fabulous guide! ”

Haruko exceeded my expectations in every way. She picked out the most important sites for me to see in a short time, as well as explaining all about their significance and their history. I asked for her to arrange a tea ceremony and she did. She is an absolutely delightful woman who is smart , educated articulate, informed and a delight to be with. I can't say enough about how wonderful she was and how she made my trip to Tokyo the memory of a lifetime.

“ Great Guide! ”

Haruko was an amazing guide in Tokyo. A one day tour brought us to many great places, and some we really enjoyed and went back! She was incredibly knowledgeable of the history and culture. I really appreciated our day with her and I highly recommend her services! We also had our 9 year old boy and she was wonderful with him and brought/showed things that would keep him entertained. Great guide!
