“ Haruko gave us what was requested, old Edo, and did so very professionally. It was not her area of expertise but she was able to be very informative. ”

It was a pleasure to spend an afternoon with Haruko. A delightful lady.

“ Two Days in Tokyo ”

We thoughly enjoyed our two days with Haruko. We experienced a plane delay and she accommodated our changed schedules and a rain storm, shared her insights and love of the city, and was both warm and professional. Highlights were the museums and gardens, the markets and a visit to a kimono shop! We plan to meet again on our next trip.

“ Tsukiji market and new old tokyo ”

Haruko is very fun loving. She is very flexible. Change as we go. I had one must to do list that is Tsukiji market and she did her best to show me around. This is the start of the busy season, there is too many people to really stop and tell stories. I wanted also to see the old and the new in tokyo and she just keep going. Every question ask, she tries to help me understand why.
