I was looking for a “non-conventional” private tour in Tokyo. To my luck, Michiko was available on the day. I was impressed with the planning. Michiko is highly knowledgeable and friendly.
Dear Olga, Thank you very much for your time to write a nice review to me.I also enjoyed the time sharing with you.The good thing is we can visit the last opened day of the last year of Koishikawa-Korakuen Garden. If you have any chances to come to Japan, just contact me. I have many ideas of tours or a one-day Hokone trip with soaking onsen as you asked. May you have an amazing year! Michiko
We booked a full day with Michiko. She was very flexible, knowledgeable and accommodated our list of must sees. Importantly, she adjusted to our pace which was probably a little slower than hers. She also helped us activate our Rail passes and taught us how to navigate the Tokyo metro system, so that we could be more self sufficient for the rest of our time. I highly recommend her if you need a guide in the city.
Dear Sona, I'm happy to hear from you again, which means you safely got back to your home. How was the trip to Kyoto? I'm sure you enjoyed Kyoto, as well. Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. Warm regards Michiko
Michiko did a great job of rolling up our list of remaining Tokyo sites before we head to the airport. She expertly wound us through the metro to the major sites while filling us in on the culture of Japan, including family life and fun facts. Thanks!!
Dear Mark, Thank you for sending me the excellent review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour with me .I also enjoyed sharing time with you, especially our yakiniku lunch time in one of the skyscrepers in Shiodome.I was relieved that Evy can have gluten free meal there and she even enjoyed ice candy. I hope your comfortable and safety flight! All the best Michiko
Michiko was very knowledgable about Tokyo and Hakone. We did a one day trip to Hakone with her and she was helpful, kind and patient. We took trains to Hakone and visited the outdoor art museum, which was wonderful. Don't miss out on the foot-onsen. We had a delicious meal of udon and tempura. Michiko helped enormously with finding out way around the train system.
Hi Daisy, Thank you for writing such an excellent review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed Hakone with me although we couldn't see Mt.Fuji. Now you have a reason to come back to Japan to see Mt.Fuji.I hope you come back to Japan someday. Best wishes to your family, Michiiko
A perfect day from start to finish, Michiko is a lovely lady arrange everything for us for our day in Hakone from Tokyo it was great to spend the day with her would highly recommend
Dear Ian and Bebe, Thank you for giving me an excellent review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed Hakone with me. One thing you missed was Mt.Fuji, but you still have the chance to see it, today and the day come back from Kyoto. If you can't see, then you will have the reason to come back to Japan ... Good luck! Michiko
