“ 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

“ Lucky to have Michiko as our guide. ”

Michiko was about as fantastic of a guide as I could have imagined. My friend and I felt confident in navigating many of the tourist areas of Tokyo, even without speaking Japanese, and were in search of a guide that could take us to places to see how Tokyo locals live, eat, and drink. Michiko found a brilliant balance of explaining Japanese culture in some very popular areas, including Meji Shrine and Asakusa Temple, Shibuya and an amazing grocery, but also took us to some off the beaten path places like Jujo Ginza and Iidabashi. The food we ate was fantastic and we were able to see how Tokyans live and eat, something we specifically requested. We were happy to allow Michiko a great deal of flexibility in planning and only gave her a few restrictions on food, and insisted we visit areas that had fewer tourists, where English would be a barrier in ordering food or understand our surroundings. Michiko provided an excellent tour and demonstrated a great sense of humor on our tour. Her tour has been the highlight of our trip. We spent 2 days with her and cannot recommend her services enough.

“ Delightful! ”

My day with Michiko was the perfect start to my Tokyo trip. In addition to the tour highlights, she was immensely helpful with Japan Rail arrangements and showing me how to use the subway system. Couldn't have done it without her!
