Yoko preplanned tour for us taking into consideration our ages (75+) and any diet problems in advance.We all enjoyed our tour of temples and shrines and were amazed with the size and age of the Big Buddha.Yoko spoke good english and had great background knowledge of the tour.
Yoko was so helpful with train transfers to/from Ashikaga Flower Park given my mother uses a wheelchair. Flower park was absolutely beautiful even with an overcast sky.
Yoko was very helpful and flexible in accommodating our needs. Did not feel rushed. Our children really enjoyed the trip
I had engaged Yoko San to show me around Tokyo for a day. Shee was very punctual and very cordial. Her English is excellent nd she knows the city very well she accomodated all my requests and interests and manned the day very well.o doubt if I could have managed evengalf if what we saw, if I had ventured on my own. Thank you Yoko San .
Very informative, trying to fit in a lot of sightseeing into the time available. Good English. Enjoyed her company!
As we embarked on our first journey to Japan, and Tokyo being our first stop, we are very happy to have met Ms. Yoko and have her as our guide. Yoko was very thorough, as she went through every destinations on our list to gauge the required time for each place. On our tour day, she brought a blanket for us to use, in case we wanted to have a picnic lunch. Yoko's English is very fluent, and her knowledge of cultural, geography, and history facts of Japan made us enjoy and appreciate Japan even more! Thank you Yoko, for a wonderful day in Tokyo, as it was a fantastic start to our wonderful 2 weeks in Japan.
I went with Yoko from Tokyo to Nikko for a day trip in April '18. She was very knowledgeable about the area ~and~ very knowledgeable about how to get there from various places in Tokyo. So she could help me not only with the visit to Nikko, but also with how get there and back. This was great because I'd never been to Nikko before. While we were there, she was very active and fun to be around. We saw a variety of places that I wanted to see and she was able to share information about the places very well. Her English is excellent. She was also kind enough to quiz me on hiragana as we walked around :). I'd gladly set up a trip with her again. A note about the temples in Nikko.. they liked stairs... they liked stairs a lot. Make sure you're in shape when you get there. I was worn out at the end of the day. Thankfully, Yoko was kind enough not to make fun of me as I tired.
Yoko is the kind of guide you want to be with. She is very organized from the very beginning. She will communicate with you from the time you book your tour up to the day of the tour and she would communicate with you after the tour. You will find a friend in her. She is very open minded and she will orient and educate you with Japanese culture. My family learned a lot from her. She would try to accommodate all of your request regarding your tour and she is honest enough to let you know if it doesn’t work. She will also give you options to accommodate everyone’s likes. She is very prompt. She Is willing to experience new things. She is fluent in English. Thank you Yoko! My family had a good time with you. It was a wonderful tour. You did an awesome job! Keep it up.
My mom and I booked a tour with Yoko to see Cheurito Pagoda and the surrounding areas by the lake. She met us at the lobby of our hotel and guided us the entire way. She even brought origami paper and taught us to make cranes on the bus ride there. She thought of everything! It was stress free and she was lovely to spend the day with. Yoko suggested the combo tram and boat ride which were both amazing. She also picked an amazing place for lunch. By far the best day we had in Japan. I highly recommend her for the experience and the company!
From the very beginning after I booked Yoko, she began to email me ideas and itineraries to consider. She also mentioned she was doing dry runs through the areas we wanted to see so she could figure out timing for us. I was impressed at her dedication. Once we arrived in Tokyo, she had subway maps and restaurant pamphlets for us to keep us organized. She spent extra time with us to make sure we got around safely. She suggested places to visit that our sons would enjoy, and because of this we actually got one of our best photo opportunities of the trip when she took us to a cafe that printed our images on our lattes! She emailed pictures after the tour. She speaks great English and is easy to understand. You can tell she really cares for her job and her clients. My one piece of criticism would be that she seems unaccustomed to young children, so frequently seemed overwhelmed by our young boys and their hyper energy. She was strict about where we could use our stroller and where we couldn't, and that felt a bit harsh to us. If you are traveling without kids, DEFINITELY choose Yoko. She is great at her job. She even gave us suggestions for places to visit in the next city in Japan where we were headed.
Yoko was a very pleasant and helpful guide, who made the day very enjoyable. Navigating the metro, trains and busses is not very easy so it was great to have a good guide. Kamakura is well worth a visit with many temples & shrines it's busy but away from the hustle of Tokyo.
