Since I was born in a family of Buddhism priest, reiligion is just a part of everyday life to me. Please feel free to participate in some rituals as a memorable experience in Japan. I can also arrange the tour to a small unknown temple where my brother is a priest, though it's located in coutryside of Fukushima prefecture, a little bit far from Tokyo.
And off course, I can guide Tokyo, Narita, Hakone, Mt. Fuji ...and so on. The attraction of Tokyo could be said as mixture of something new and something old. Please feel many attractive dimenshions with me!
I had a chance to live in the Philippines for 5 years, and at that time people are so kind and generous to me. That's the reason why I am a tour guide now to do something helpful for guests from all over the world. So please don't hesitate to tell me your choice, I'm willing to serve you and I'll be with you almost everywhere around Tokyo and Japan!

Noriko was punctual, knowledgeable, and conversant. We went to Mt. Fuji and Hakone with her and she did her best to show us whatever she could despite the rain and clouds. She suggested alternative sites because our ropeway was closed due to earthquake recently. Noriko listened to our suggestions and tried to please us as much as possible without jeopodising the schedule and time.
Noriko was an able guide who was able to lead us to see Mt Fuji as viewed from Oishi Park. We went to on this trip to see Mt Fuji while Tokyo was having a heat wave, we were able Noriko was able to guide us thru the maze of trains and bus to get there. There were 10+ of us in the group and going from one mode of transportation to another can be daunting but she guided us very well. My only request is that maybe she could have advised us of the availability of chartered bus since we were a big group. Overall. it was a good day to see Mt Fuji as guided by Noriko.
Dear Arthur, Thank you so much for your suggestion. It was a very hot day, so good to escape from Tokyo and feel a nice breeze in the mountaineous area. I had explained to make my itinerary by using public transportation, however, I apologize if you felt it was incovenient. Thank you so much for your choosing Japan as a destination for your memorable family reunion! Sincerely, Noriko
Noriko comes ahead of time during our meeting appointment, she is very courteous, kind, extremely helpful to our needs, she performs very well more than what we expect. We surely had a wonderful time with her and for those who want to find a professional guide, Noriko is the one you won’t regret because her great service will makes your day very inspiring! Thank you Noriko!
Thank you so much for your warm comment! It was a rainy day, but each of you enjoys every moment. It made me so happy! I'm truely glad that I could guide your family. I hope you made sweet memories during your visit in Japan and have a comfortable trip to the Phillipines. Maraming, maraming, salamat po!
Noriko is a very experienced and knowledgeable about her job. We had a wonderful time and learned so much about Japan's culture, traditions and history. She explains it to us in a very simple but precise way. She's very flexible even at the very last minute to make changes in the tour itinerary and request to add more things that my daughter wants to do/experience she gladly do what we ask. A very polite, cheerful and accommodating tour guide and interpreter. We surely enjoyed our tour and if we have the chance to go back to Tokyo again we will still choose her to be our guide. No words could express our thanks to her.
No words could express my thanks to you! That's what I want to tell you... It was a very hot day and walking made the tour pretty hectec, but I was so glad that your family enjoyed every moment. Your daughter was so beautiful in kimono because she had a good eyes to choose! And it is very interesting your sons' attitudes are just like my sons' Also, I was so moved when I heard this travel was family memorial and prize for graduation and your children requested Japan as the destination. Please come back again!
When we checked in to the hotel, to our surprise the concierge handed over an envelope, which was a hand written welcome note dropped of by Norika. This was a pleasant surprise. She also arranged for us a special tour of the Tokyo parliament - The National Diet. Noriko was very helpful, kind and gentle person. Thank you for the amazing Tokyo tour!
Thank you so much for your kind comment. I'm so glad that you were intrested in visiting the National Diet. That 2 days' itinerary was pretty hectec with walking . However, I was so glad that your members were so energetic and enjoyed a lot. Thank you very much!
