“ Excellent Guide ”

Michiko was our guide for 6 hours in Tokyo and did an excellent job. She showed us how to thrive as tourists, and showed us major highlights. She even helped us plan the following day without a guide. I highly recommend her!

“ Great day sightseeing in Tokyo ”

Michiko was a great guide in Tokyo. We were together for a day and she showed me the highlights of Tokyo. We particularly enjoyed the markets and the boat trip up the river to the old town.

“ Hakone in May ”

Lovely trip with Michiko shame the weather was so bad as it rained all day but we were able to do all transport routes so able to travel across the town. Michiko was a lovely guide very thoughtful and accommodating as we had a young baby with us.

“ A fun walk through the night ”

Michiko was an informative and fun guide over our 4 hour food and bar hopping night. Communication with Michiko prior to meeting was excellent and we had a fun nights walking tour. The bar down Memory lane was particularly good. Thank you Michiko
