“ 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!
