“ Great interpreter for a family get together with my Japanese family. ”

Michiko is very easy to be with and an excellent interpreter. She guided us on a 1/2 day Tour of Tokyo and even gave us important information on how to use the complicated Train system. The most important event for me was meeting my Japanese family, who do not speak English. She interpreted effortlessly and the day went without a glitch. I would highly recommend Michiko for Tokyo tours and any interpreter needs. She is a delight.


Thank you very much for giving me the excellent review. I also enjoy sharing time with all of you not only guiding but also the reunion of your family at Fuku-san's house. I was moved by the seashore story you told. I hope every thing goes well for both of your family!

“ Hakone tour 25/8 ”

My wife, 2 sons and myself had a great day with Michiko, who is a lovely person. Our planned itinerary had to be adjusted because of the poor weather and may have been a challenge for Michiko which was met! What we did together was very good - thanks. If anyone was thinking of hiring a guide, you will not be disappointed with Michiko, who is a star!


Thank you for sending me such an excellent review. Since it was poor weather in Hakone and we couldn't ride a ropeway and an excursion ship.(Instead we saw an interesting scene that two fish were dead in big waves of lake Ashi.) I was little concerned about if you were satisfied with my tour. But now I'm glad to have your warm comment.. Thank you and take care!

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

Michiko, was great and gave us a good overview of Tokyo in one day! Despite the heat, we enjoyed our visit and thank Michiko for her courtesy.


Dear laura, Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed my tour, especially "Asakura Museum of Sculpture". That museum is one of my favorite ones. How was your way back from Omotesando to your hotel ? I believed that you enjoyed taking a walk along the nice street even under the heat. Michiko

“ The very best tour guide for a wonderful first day in Tokyo! ”

Michiko was wonderful, my family and I loved her - she was flexible and very responsive before we met. During the tour she was exactly the same - we definitely are not an easy group to herd, and Michiko was patient with us and led us to amazing sights - We felt like we saw a ton of Tokyo in just 8 hours. Highly highly recommended - thank you Michiko!!


Hi Briel and the family, Thank you very much for an excellent review. I'm glad to know that you fully enjoyed the day in Tokyo with me. Starting the tour in the early morning is a good idea to avoid the scorching heat. Thank you for giving me your idea, I hope your mother get better and enjoy the rest of days with all the members! Have a nice and comfortable vacation! Michiko

“ 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!


Thank you very much for sending me an excellent review. How was the rest of day in Tokyo? I'm sure you enjoyed Tokyo with confidence. I hope Lily gets used to walk in Japanese sandals and visits many sightseeing spots with you. Take care!
