“ Amazing time in Tokyo ”

We came to Tokyo for a short visit and wanted to absorb a real life experience for what it's like to visit. With Michiko's help we were able to spend four fabulous hours exploring Shibuya, Shinjuko, and Kabukichō. We explored the train/subway, two great restaurants and twisted and turned through a myriad of narrow alleys full of unique bars and restaurants. Somehow on our journey we even made it to Godizilla, clothes stores and more!! Fun, exciting and an amazing life experience. Thank you Michiko!!! My wife and I are honored to have met you. O and L

“ Perfect day in Tokyo ”

We were only going to be in Tokyo for one day and thanks to Michiko that one day was a perfect one. Michiko was very knowledgeable, flexible, and accommodating to our requests. We could not have seen as much as we did without her. We learned a great deal about the areas we visited which enriched the experience. According to my Fitbit we did over 16 miles of sightseeing. What a wonderful day. Thank you Michiko!!

“ Able to adapt the itinerary as we went along ”

Was in Tokyo on very short notice and as I liked her reviews I picked Michiko. Very nice lady that really knows Tokyo well. I didn't have a lot of sights on my list as I didn't have much time to prepare, so she came up with ideas for me as we went along, which was great, i.e. taking the boat to the national garden as I saw the boat terminal and wanted to try it. Highlight for me was the little restaurant (sits 8 people max) she took me to, were *******ted with all the locals and tried all types of local specialties. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a real authentic Tokyo experience.

“ A wonderful Tokyo experience! ”

From the day I selected Michiko, she has been responsive, informational, helpful and professional. I hired her for two days in Tokyo and she created 2 very full days including some of Tokyo's best sights. Her knowledge of history and details of the sights made them come alive. She was very considerate, always concerned with my desires and my energy level. I can highly recommend her.

“ Great tours ”

She was ontime, took care of everything, led us to everything we had time to see. Ensured that we had a wonderful experience. Tours in Japan are a little expensive but she was well worth it. She handled everything including transportation, entrances and food. We never had to make any transactions.
