our family had a very pleasant day with Haruko. we visited the places we had organized together. she was helpful and provided us maps, explained the tokyo transportation system, and answered many of our questions. it was a valuable introduction and orientation to the city.
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.
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
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.
Flexible, was great. Knew a lot about Tokyo, keeping the tour efficient. Very friendly, good English speakers. Thank you for taking care of my wife and son.
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.
Haruko is an excellent tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was perfectly paced and appropriate for my mother and I. Thanks Haruko! Highly recommended.
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.
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!
