Halloo, I'm Shoko Shimazu.

If you are going to visit Japan, especially Kamakura or Hakone, please let me help you.
With my tenacious preparation and knowledge, I will make your trip become an enjoyable and memorable one.
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon.

Very good. Helpful and knowledgeable. Navigated us around efficiently. We saw a lot of interesting sights on our limited time. Highly recommended
Dear Alfonso Thank you for giving me 5 stars with a great review. With your cooperation, our tours have finished without any accidents, especially yesterday when it rained. Please tell Sally that I had a wonderful chat with her. Thank you. Please have a wonderful voyage, and take a great care of yourselves. Best regards, Shoko
We would actually give Shoko 10 stars if we could. Firstly Shoko is a first class lady and human,with a sense of humour and went to an enormous amount of planning and reconaisance for our day tour. Much more than we had expected. We love her. Shoko even brought her luck by rubbing a lucky rabbit foot and Mt Fuji revealed herself from the cloud.
Dear David, Thank you for giving me 5 stars. I'm really enjoyed your company. I'm not an experienced guide, but you're kind and cooperative so that the tour went so smoothly. I can not express by words how I appreciate your kindness. Your words are incentive to my future tours. I hope that you will have a good time on the rest of your trip and go back to Australia with a lot of wonderful memories. Shoko
Very friendly person.
It was very nice. Shoco is very good guide. Best regards
Dear Famija, Thank you for your review. I really appreciate that you gave me high mark. It is my great motivation for future tours! I hope Japan has left you good memories in this tour! Best regards, Shoko
