“ Great guide ”

Keiko did a great job despite the bad weather. Communication with her was smooth and friendly. She really did a great job and I would recommend her if you want a nice guide in Tokyo.

Keiko:

Dear Laurene, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. You tried to have a good time together in the cold rainy weather. Fortunately you were able to see beautiful Kawazu-sakura cherry blossoms in Yoyogi Park. Then you enjoyed tonkotsu-ramen. I hope you will come back to Tokyo someday and find other faces of Tokyo. Please say hello to your friends. Many Thanks, Keiko

“ One day trip in Tokyo ”

I had one day trip with keiko. We went famous sites, where I had an unique experience about Japanese culture and we tried several Japanese sweets and had a Teppanyaki lunch. It was rainy day but it was delightful. The day Tokyo was also hosting Marathon, some streets were blocked. Keiko was well planned, at end of trip she guided me back to hotel without much of delay. A day trip was memorable.

Keiko:

Dear Vincent, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. I am very glad to know that you enjoyed my tour. Because it was cold and rainy and some roads were closed for Tokyo Marathon. So I had to ask you to walk longer than usual in the uncomfortable situation. You tasted various kinds of Japanese food including umeboshi( plum pickles), salt, vegetable tea, nuts...etc while we talked about various things about social things , culture,...etc. I hope you will come back to Japan and enjoy other kinds of Japanese food with me. Best Regards, Keiko

“ A lovely and informative day with Keiko ”

We had a great time with Keiko, who showed us around like an old friend. She was pleasant to be with and very accommodating. More than her knowledge of the city and its culture, she shared valuable tips that will allow us to enjoy Tokyo on our own.

Keiko:

Dear Lissette, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. I was really happy having a tour with you. And I think all the people you met during the tour felt in the same way. Knife masters at Asakusa, a paper shop owner, sushi chefs at Tsukiji, they looked very happy with smile when you said good-bye to them. I hope you will have great and fruitful days in Tokyo and go back to your country safely. I am looking forward to seeing you again in Tokyo. Please say hello to your husband. Best Regards Keiko

“ Excellent introduction to Tokyo and Japan ”

We just wanted to express our appreciation for the 8 hour guided tour of Tokyo that Keiko provided for us, a couple visiting Japan for the first time. Her communication before our trip was exemplary, and her teaching experience as well as knowledge of Japanese history and culture gave us an ideal first day of our ten day visit. It helped us to quickly understand practical matters such as the transportation system and gave us valuable local perspectives on society, religion and customs. In addition, we were able to see much more than we otherwise would have been able to. We are very much looking forward to our next visit.

Keiko:

Dear Bjorn I am very grateful for your wonderful review of my tour. I was very impressed by the fact that you tried to understand Japanese way of living or thinking through experiencing . It was my good opportunity for me to talk about it during the tour and reminded me of the difference and similarity between our cultures. I hope you will come back to Japan and find other faces of it. I am very much looking forward to seeing you again, too . Thank you very much for your kindness. Keiko

“ An amazing day with Keiko! ”

We came to Tokyo just before New Years and didn't have a lot of time, so we booked our day with Keiko. She reached out ahead of our arrival to confirm to discuss our preferences. Keiko is very professional and prepared to make the most of your time in Tokyo. Her English is very good and being a former teacher you can tell how much she enjoys teaching. She taught us about the Japanese New Year traditions, how to use the public train systems and the local landmarks we asked to see. We spent a complete full day with her and it was the best thing we could have done. I wish our stay in Tokyo was longer so we could have seen more. We will definitely book Keikl again when returning to Tokyo. It was an amazing day. Tim & Michelle Smith Brentwood, California

Keiko:

Dear Tim Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. You came to Tokyo just before the New Years , so every place you visited were beautifully decorated especially for New Years with pine trees and bamboo branches and people were busy preparing for it. At Tsukiji Fish Market, they sold special food for it like auspicious colored fish cakes, herring roe, cooked marrons ...etc. A lot of Japanese people visited there as well as foreign tourists. At Asakusa, Nakamise shopping street was also decorated with special ornaments like auspicious rice cakes, Kites, tops...etc. It was my pleasure to tell you about those traditional things. Because you were so interested in each of them. I hope you will come back to Tokyo in a different season to enjoy different face of it. I am looking fo... read more

“ Going around Tokyo for a cultural experience with the subway with more confidence ”

It was a very wonderful experience to be guided by Keiko in Tokyo. She explains the history and culture very well. Keiko is very patient and accommodating. She acceded to our requests and made the experience sight seeing around north part of Tokyo very memorable. Thank you, Keiko!

Keiko:

Dear Anita Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. It was a memorable tour for me, too. Through this tour, I was able to know more about Islam. It is fantastic. At the same time, I found some similar points with ours in your culture. Has the lucky boy already been using the new camera ? Maybe he took beautiful Mt. Fuji with it. I hope you will have great days in Japan and go back to your country in safe. I am looking forward to seeing you again here in Tokyo. Please say hello to your lucky and clever boy.

“ Very Accommodating ”

We had a great 2 days with Keiko. She was punctual and flexible when we asked her to meet us at our hotel even though it was out of her way. We were able to adjust our itinerary each day based on what we wanted to do. She knew all the places to get free samples at the Tsukiji fish market. We wanted to sample Japanese food so she took us to several places. She pointed out the best places to take pictures. She provided interesting information about each of the sites we visited. We rode a lot of trains and she got us around quickly. We highly recommend Keiko.

Keiko:

Dear Sandra, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. The days with me were the first two days of your trip around Japan, so I tried to inform the general aspects of Japanese culture. I was very happy because you were so enthusiastic that you often took notes and took pictures. I sometimes talked how your country influenced on Japanese modernization, and each time I did , you said that your country also was influenced from ours. I also wanted you to try as much Japanese food as possible. You courageously tried various kinds of Japanese food. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan and go back to your country with wonderful memories. Please say hello to your kind and friendly family members. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Great Day with Keiko! ”

We had a wonderful half day with Keiko! She met us at our hotel and showed us how to get to the train station and buy tickets and how to get around. We went to two areas in Tokyo and saw lots of places and learned lots of interesting things. She went above and beyond and took us to our next place we wanted to go even though it was after 1pm. My kids enjoyed her and we would use her again! Thank you Keiko!

Keiko:

Dear Tiffany Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour ! First we visited Tsukiji Fish Market. It was a special day for the Market; it was the last day for them to open the Inner market there. You bought big berries there. They were so delicious, weren't they ? Then we moved to Asakusa. You enjoyed traditional Japanese sweets. You and your family members enjoyed everywhere I shouwed , and it was my greatest pleasure. I hope you will have a good time during your stay in Japan. I also wish to see you again in Tokyo in the near future. Many thanks, Keiko

“ A great day to remember. ”

Our tour was threatened with cancellation as a result of Typhoon "Trami" however Kieto kept on top of things and we agreed a small change in timings which allowed the tour to take place. Her tour was as discussed, at a suitable pace and very informative. We saw in our seven hours more than we could have done on our own in a week. All travel arrangements were handled by Kieto and involved several metro trips and a bus trip all of which were done seamlessly Many thanks Kieto "A GREAT DAY TO REMEMBER" Robert Janet William Irene.

Keiko:

Dear Robert, Janet, William, Irene, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour with you. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed Tokyo with me. First,I worried about cancellation because of the typhoon, but fortunately we were able to start the tour by changing some parts. I really feel sorry that I couldn't help but asking you to walk long and climb stairs. At the same time I was very impressed by your sense of humor. It helped make our tour very interesting and friendly . Thank you very much .(Do-mo arigato gozaimashita ) I am looking forward to seeing you in the near future in Tokyo again. Best Wishes, Keiko.

“ 2 Day Custom Tour of Tokyo ”

We very much enjoyed our two days customized Tokyo itinerary with Keiko. There is no way we could have seen as many of the sights in Tokyo over that period and absolutely no way we could have understood so much of Japanese history related to the sites we were seeing and generally without Keiko. Keiko assisted us in designing two great days, was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Thank you!

Keiko:

Dear John, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of my tour. I also would like to say thank you and your friend for great days you gave me. You were so interested in what I talked and tried to understand Japanese culture and history , and sometimes tried to adjust to it. It was my greatest pleasure to share the time with you talking about Japan and Japanese culture. I hope you will have a fantastic time in other local parts of Japan and go back to your country safely. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the near future in Tokyo. Please say hello to your friend. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Wonderful tour of Tokyo - including Asakusa and Meiji Jingu Shrine ”

Keiko was a really knowledgeable and friendly guide. She travelled to meet us at our hotel, which was outside Tokyo in Kawasaki, and helped us to navigate the public transport system. She was very informative about the places we visited, and was able to give us many details about the history behind the sights. She was very friendly, and patient with our large group of people - which was indeed a challenge with such a variety of different ages, interests and abilities. We appreciated her flexibility to make changes to the tour schedule - and we were impressed with the amount of things we were able to see, given the time available. It was a perfect introduction to Tokyo! Thank you Keiko!

Keiko:

Dear Stella, Thank you very much for a wonderful review about my tour ! It was a great experience to me , too. Because each of you were from different parts of the earth and had different cultural background. I was lucky to guide such an interesting group of people. You told me about your own culture and experiences. It's really fun to me. You were flexible and respected other's opinion. I think this is the point we should learn to keep peace in the world. Anyway, I am really relieved to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. I remember you saw beautiful wedding couples in kimono , you challenged soba noodles with chopsticks, etc . I hope you will have wonderful days in Japan and go back to each of your countries with good memories. Many thanks to all of you ! Especially Stella, t... read more

“ Knowledgeable guide with a beautiful disposition ”

We had decided we needed a guide to assist us with traversing the trains system and finding interesting places without getting lost! Keiko really knew the history of the areas we visited. We had a list of must sees and some places Keiko hadn’t seen before ( Nissan Crossing for getting a coffee with your face printed on it!) She was the most polite and lovely lady. It was definitely an amazing three days and we missed her after we parted. She was amazing with our 12 yr old, and they spoke at length about various things, history, food, everyday Japan and Shintoism. I would not hesitate to use Keiko again! It was the best three days of our trip so far.

Keiko:

Dear Jodi, Thank you very much for your review of my tour. I spent fantastic days with you and your families. You had researched a lot about Japan, so I was able to show you where you were interested in. There were places I hadn't known before such as Ginza coffee, Jiro. They are all good memories. I miss every thing. But especially I miss the clever boy. He listened carefully to what I talked and asked me a lot of good questions. Sometimes it was a kind of philosophical. I hope you will have a good time the rest of your trip as much as possible and go back to your country with good memories. I wish I will be able to see you again in the near future in Tokyo. Best Regards, Keiko

“ Amazing Day ”

We had an amazing day with our lovely tour guide Keiko. She is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Japan and Tokyo (history, everything about the temples we visited, custom, ...). She knows authentic places to eat & drink. It was a real pleasure spending the day with her.

Keiko:

Dear Ralf, Thank you very much for writing a wonderful review of my tour. I was so happy showing you around Tokyo because all of you were so enthusiastic in experiencing Japanese culture and tradition. Especially I was really glad that you were able to see a wedding couple in traditional costume at Meiji shrine and beautiful portable shrines at Asakusa. I also remember you tried ramen for lunch and Japanese sweets( ningyo yaki) and kalpis( white drink) and tsukudani( seasoned with soy sauce and sugar). All of them are good memory to me. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your days in Japan and I will be able to see you again in the near future. Arigato Gozaimashita(Thank you very much) Keiko

“ The Best Guide of our Trip ”

Keiko was our ideal guide, providing lots of information without us needing to ask. Her knowledge of history is wonderful. Exactly what we wanted. She even brought photos of the Imperial family and illustrations of what Tokyo looked like in the past. She guided us seamlessly around Senso-ji Temple, it's market street and Imado Shrine. Imado was a new one for her but Keiko still provided us plenty of information about it. We had four different guides for our 10 day trip to Japan and Keiko was by far the best!

Keiko:

Dear Bethany, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. You were so interested in the history of Asakusa , and it was my pleasure to show you around historical parts of it as well as popular parts. It was my first visit to Imado shrine, and I was able to imagine the traditional atmosphere of it in Edo period. Also you found an interesting shop: traditional candy handcraft shop. I was really happy to have a good time talking about history. Thank you very much. I hope I will be able to show you another historical places in Tokyo. Please say hello to your friend. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Keiko was just what we were looking for in a tour guide. She was personable, spoke English well and showed us her country like only she could do. After leaving her we went on a cruise and after each tour we all said we wished we could have found another tour guide from Triple Lights in stead of the big ship tour guides!

Keiko:

Dear Wendy, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. All of you tried to experience Japanese culture very positively like Scarlet Ohara in "Gone with the wind". For example, you tasted sweet eggs at Tsukiji Fish market, you tried to manipulate chopsticks during lunch time, tried to remember "arigatou" or "thank you". You looked very happy when you took pictures of young girls in kimono under cherry blossoms. I 'd like to show you different Japan in different season. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the near future in Tokyo. Please say hello to your friends. Best Wishes, Keiko

Keiko:

Dear Tami, Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. I think you tasted most delicious food at Tsukiji Fish market. I remember you were going to have a party with a lot of delicious food and dishes from Tsukiji and Ginza. I am sure you had really a good time with your family.

“ Tokyo tour ”

Keiko was a delight to be with. We were a group of 7 and she managed to navigate us through the subway system without problem. She contacted us before the tour and asked us about our interests and must see areas and she arranged our day accordingly. We did Tsukiji market, Asakusa, Meiji shrine, and Harajuku area then dropped us off at Shiodome station per our request so we can do a self guided tour at Odaiba in the evening. She even prepared some historical pictures so she can give us some information while riding the train. Will definitely recommend Keiko! 😀

Keiko:

Dear Sarah Thank you very much for a wonderful review of my tour. I am very happy to know that you had a good time in Tokyo. Your family enjoyed everywhere you visited together. It was so impressive to me and made me happy. Even at Asakusa where we had ramen and some people had hard time using chopsticks, you looked delightful. I am relieved to know that you enjoyed Odaiba after I left you there, because it is a little bit complicated to get . There are many places to see in Tokyo. I am looking forward to seeing you again in Tokyo in the near future. Please say hello to your family members. Best Wishes, Keiko

Then we had a break on top of a building at Shiodome enjoying a breathtaking view. Your family looked so happy , and it happened at Kabuki, Tokyo Station, Akihabara, too. I hope you will come back to Tokyo in the near future and I will be able to see you again. Please say hello to your families. Best Wishes, Keiko

“ Fluent, friendly and flexible ”

Keiko arranged itineraries around my specific interests and gave some excellent advice. If you are meeting in any of the large stations check which line as well as the platform number, for example Tokyo station has two different platforms 4 in the same building! I managed to get lost! When I did meet up with Keiko I was impressed with her level of preparation, her knowledge and her fluency and very much enjoyed our time together.

Keiko:

Dear June Thank you very much for your kind review. I really feel sorry that I was not able to show you Sakura. I should have explained more details about Tokyo station. However I am relieved to know that you enjoyed my Yanaka tour. You enjoyed not only buildings and streets but also Japanese culture, such as hand crafts and food. It's also fun to me to visit fabric streets at Nippori. You taught me a lot about British culture and it's very interesting to me. Thank you very much. I hope you will come back to Japan in the near future and I will be able to see you again. Best Wishes Keiko

Our group of 7 were lucky enough to spend the day with Keiko exploring Tokyo. As first time travelers to Japan, and a large group, we weren’t sure where to start with our exploration.
