“ Very accommodating guide ”

Our family of 4 met Junko to guide us on a one day tour of Tokyo. She arrived on time and was prepared with handouts, maps etc. we had emailed back and forth before our trip discussing the itinerary. Junko replied promptly and happily revised as needed. We would not have been able to see as many sites on our own, she also taught us how to navigate the subway system which can be intimidating for a first timer who does not speak Japanese. Her English is good, we were able to understand most everything. Junko also took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch. It was affordable and one of the best meals we had. I would use her again if we are lucky enough to return to Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank you for a wonderful review, Ingrid. I am very glad to have helped you and your family know Tokyo. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thanks again. Junko

Junko was very accommodating with our request for timing changes and also modified our tour because of the rain. She was an excellent and informative guide and we very much enjoyed our tour.

Junko:

“ Expectations................Delivered!!! ”

As a construction project management professional, I know the best service providers book quickly. Accordingly, we began the tour booking process months in advance. I was and remain thoroughly impressed with the timeliness, completeness, and accuracy of each and every email touching on every aspect (itinerary, logistics, meals, payment, etc.) of the tour between Junko myself. With such professionalism, I knew why others had such high regard for Junko. I knew I had selected the right private tour guide. With everything scheduled and agreed upon months in advance, all we had to do was wait for the events we scheduled to occur. And, they did occur - just like clockwork! Throughout our two-day tour, everything we saw and experienced with Junko was very good. Thank you Junko for c... read more

“ Wonderful, knowledgeable Guide! ”

Junko was a very knowledgeable and shared many stories and insights about Japan’s history throughout the day. As promised, she met us at our hotel and guided us through the subway system during our days journey. We visited an open air market which was very interesting showcasing many varieties of fresh and dried fish, beautiful fruits and vegetables. We visited a Shinto shrine and the beautiful Hama-rikyu Gardens. Then we boarded a boat and took a relaxing trip up the Sumida River to the Asakusa area. After a wonderful lunch at a Soba noodle restaurant we enjoyed more sightseeing in the area including a very beautiful Buddhist Temple. Junko always looked after our needs and made adjustments to our itinerary as the day progressed when she realized we were becoming tired. As promised she d... read more

“ Fantastic day in Tokyo ”

My husband, my 12 years old son and I spent 1 day wandering around Tokyo with Junko and I heartily reccomend her and her guide services. Junko knows Tokyo very well and she adds references to Japans history as well as modern culture. She was very flexible with our requests. We have been in touch before the trip and prepared a plan together of what we wanted to see. We did some minor deviation during the day due to our last minutes requests. It was an excellent experience and I'm glad I've chosen to tour with Junko. On top of everything else she speaks an excellent Italian and she knows Italy quite well. We've been delighted to meet and spend the day with Junko and we will cherish this experience for a long time

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Stefania! I am very happy to have accompanied you, Luca and Tommaso in Tokyo. How was Ghibli Museum? Spero che avrete un buon soggiorno in Japan. Grazie mille!! Junko

“ Full day in Tokyo ”

Junko provided an excellent day out. We saw all the sights requested which would not have been possible on our own. She had lots of knowledge about each place we visited. She helped us navigate the subway system leaving us able to use it well over the next couple of days. Communication before hand was also prompt and timely. Thanks for a great day Junko!

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Karen. I am very glad to have helped you start traveling in Japan. I had a great time with you and your family. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan (Okinawa, etc.). Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ Perfect first day in Tokyo ”

Junko went above and beyond during our half day tour. She helped us plan an itinerary of sites we would have missed on our own and her knowledge of the city ensured we covered way more ground in a few hours than we could have navigating ourselves. She was a wealth of information on Yanaka and Asakusa but also answered all of our random cultural questions and helped us figure out the train system on our first day. Thanks for a wonderful time Junko! Highly recommend!

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a great review. I am very happy to help you know Tokyo and Japan on the first day. Have you been to the Meguro River to see cherry blossoms? Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thank you again and take care. Junko

Junko our guide for our first day in Tokyo was absolutely the best. She was very knowledable in all aspects whether it was how to get around using the train systems or regarding Japanese culture and history. Our only wish is that our gracious and knowlegable guide was with us every day in Japan.

“ Exceptionally knowledgeable, personable and dedicated to her clients in providing an exceptional experience of Japan. ”

Our expectations of our 7 day sojourn to Tokyo and environs were exceeded and I attribute this to our wonderful guide, Junko. She brought us to old and new Tokyo. We saw every day life and walked historical Tokyo. We viewed gardens and blooming Cherry trees!! Many of the shrines, temples and gardens brought us to tears with their beauty and history. History spoke to us through Junko's retelling of the Edo period as we walked the many sites in the city. The traditions of the temples and shrines were revealed through her voice. We ended our day thinking we had been reading a history text book as we recalled all that we experienced with Junko as our guide and interpreter. We could not have experienced as much a we did without Junko. She was personal, kind and a delight to be with every minu... read more

I appreciate your great review a lot, Maureen! I am really happy you and Lily enjoyed Japanese gardens and cheery blossoms. I also had a wonderful time with you, which I will never forget.

“ Thank Goodness for Junko ”

So glad we had Junko starting our first day in Tokyo! Despite reading so much about Tokyo and having google maps to help me, I know our family of four would have gotten lost now if we didn’t hire Junko. Junko helped us with subways, stopping over at a beautiful park going from first destination to the next and made our first day so much nicer. She also helped me plan out which places to visit that our children would enjoy! We see her again in 2 days. I highly recommend Junko! She was also very knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of our kids! Also a lovely lady!

Junko:

I appreciate such a great review, Teri. I am very happy to have helped you and your family enjoy staying Tokyo. See you soon! Thank you again. Junko

“ Knowledgeable and pleasant! ”

We are very glad we booked our tour with Junko, she was an excellent guide on our first day in Tokyo. She created a customized itinerary based on our interests, and her recommendations turned out to be great. She helped us pack a lot into our day, but not “too much” – really the perfect pace for us. She clearly knew her stuff and had done her research on the sites we visited. The extra information she gave us at every site was not only very interesting, but added a lot to the experience. If we visit Tokyo again in the future we will definitely sign up for another tour with Junko.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Tom and Karen. I am really glad that you enjoyed my tour. I also had a great time with you. Hope to meet you in future again. Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ Nice day in tokyo ”

We did a custom tour of Tokyo. I asked Junko to concentrate on cultural and historical aspects of japan and as such, we visited Tsukiji fish market, Asakusa, and akhibara. We had planned to go to ueno park but ran out of time. Junko was very nice and accommodating particularly as my daughter was ill on the day of our tour. Her English was a little hard to understand which I think hampered our learning of the historical aspects of Japan. She was, however, patient with our requests.

Thank you very much for a good review. I had a great time with you and your family. I appreciate your comment, which will be so helpful to improve my work in the future. Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ Great tour with Junko! ”

Junko is a friendly, well spoken tour guide. We were a group of 4. We booked Junko's 4 hour custom private tour but added an extra hour so that we could take our time. We are glad that we added the extra hour as it allowed us to have a longer lunch and explore at our own pace. Junko was highly responsive with communication before our tour via email. This made us immediately feel comfortable with our booking. She was thoughtful and flexible with planning, and very organized. Upon arrival she provided us with a maps, historical info and photos. She accommodated all members of our group despite varying ages, physical fitness and interest levels.

“ Highly recommended ”

Junko was a wonderful guide from the start. As soon as I booked our tour, I received a confirmation email with questions about what we would like to do and see and a prospective itinerary. We asked to change one place in the itinerary and she gave us several other ideas we could do instead. We made our tour the day after we arrived so she could familiarize us with the areas and I'm so glad we did! She showed us how to use the subway/train and while it was very easy, it was so nice to have her there with us the first time. We went all over the place and while we could have done it on our own, it would have taken A LOT longer and we wouldn't have had someone providing us with the local information that really made it interesting. I loved the tour of the fish market and all the differ... read more

Miss Junko is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable on the history on the location we visited which gave us a better appreciation for those sites. Miss Junko is also very flexible with our schedule and made sure to update our schedule and show us different locations. We were able to see many different sites and try food that would had been missed if we tried ourselves. Thank you very much for a wonderful day Miss Junko and I will most certainly recommend your services to anyone!

“ Very lovely day ”

I set up a full 8 hours with Junko in Tokyo in November 2018. She had great communication planning our day as best as possible for the list of things I wanted to see. Unfortunately, I was very tired and jet lagged and by the 4th hour was having a hard time keeping up. I would recommend her to anyone - she came fully prepared with maps and ideas etc. She was lovely - but we didn't do enough stopping for meals, water etc. Possibly because my plan was very extensive - and she wanted to please me. Note that it can take 30 mins to get anywhere - focus on a few neighborhoods and do everything in that area vs jumping across town etc. Make sure you are clear about stops and lunch etc. Tokyo is super crowded so lines everywhere at lunch. I would start early, have lunch early and make sure its a pl... read more

“ Junko made our Tokyo experience wonderful. ”

We booked a 7 hour tour of Tokyo with Junko on November 9, 2018. Junko is the definition of excellence in a guide: Very professional manner, knowlegdable, good personality and very good English speaker. She communicated well with us before our Tokyo tour with helpful suggestions and even researched transportation options for us to get to Tokyo from Yokohama. She arrived early at the designated meeting place and immediately started our tour. Junko guided us though all chosen sites efficiently but with flexibility when we requested a weather-related change of itinerary, which turned out to be even better than originally planned.

“ Junko is the best!! ”

Junko was an excellent choice for me! She came to the Yokohama port to meet my ship and guided me safely to my Tokyo hotel. I was not feeling 100% that day, and Junko took care of everything .. checking me in, taking care of my luggage, arranging early check-in, and seeing me safely to my room. She also made a cancellation for me for a restaurant booking. On the second day, my plans had changed. I wanted to go to Kamakura to see the giant Buddha at the Zen Temple there. Junko quickly changed her prepared Tokyo itinerary and rewrote one for Kamakura, sending it by fax to my hotel room. I was feeling much better on our day, so we met at 7:30 am and caught one train, then a local (great sightseeing along the way) to the beautiful Hasadera temple. Along the way, Junko and I talked ab... read more

“ Excellent tour of Kamakura! ”

Junko provided a spectacular tour of Kamakura, being careful ahead of time to clarify what exact places we wanted to visit. While she had a list of suggested places, she was very open to our ideas. For example, when we requested to have lunch a particular restaurant (highly recommended on Tripadvisor), Junko made reservations for us. She was very warm and likable, organized, and helpful with providing the historical details of Buddhism and Shintoism. Junko was very good with our 14 year old daughter, and said she enjoys children (we were not surprised!) - so if you have kids, she would be a great guide!! We recommend her highly.

“ A thoroughly interesting day ”

Prior to arriving in Tokyo we had discussed, by email, a plan for the day. We were not overly interested in 'sightseeing' but instead wished to visit some interesting neighbourhoods. We suggested the Kagurazaka area and Junko recommended we should also explore the Yanesen district near the Yanaka Cemetery. It was a thoroughly interesting day. As first-timers to Japan, Junko was able to explain many aspects of Japanese culture and reliigion and we really enjoyed the day. She is a quiet, patient guide and gave us plenty of information without overloading us with too many facts.

Junko was a a great guide. She arrived at our hotel early and had set a nice itinerary for us but was very flexible as well. Her English was good enough that I had no problem understanding. She was personable and friendly. She explained a lot about the Japanese people, their history, beliefs, habits and customs. She had much information about each place we visited. She even helped clean me up after a bird flew overhead and dropped a “load” on my shirt. She also helped us purchase tickets for the Narita Express while we were at the train station, since we were leaving a couple of days after.

“ Walking Tour Of Tokyo ”

Junko was incredibly accommodating on a hot and blistering day in Tokyo. She showed us around the Tsukiji Fish market, Sensoji Temple and Tokyo Skytree. We even had the chance to experience a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. We had our 10 year old son with us and she made sure that none of our walking activities were too strenuous for him. We had never been to Japan before and made the most of our day thanks to Junko and her very knowledgeable tour. We became familiar with the Tokyo mass transit system and were able to travel around thanks to her advice. I would very much recommend her for anyone wishing to explore the Japanese capital for the first time.

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Ron. I am very happy to have helped you enjoy staying in Tokyo. Hope you and your family will come to Tokyo again. Take care! Junko

“ Wonderful Guide ”

Highly recommend Junko as a tour guide. Very knowledgeable, caring and well prepared guide. Had an amazing tour at fish market where we loved the different samples to taste. Had our 8yo grandson with us who she also looked out for in the crowds and always had our needs in mind. Due to the heat had to cut our tour short which upset us but Junko was very caring making sure I was ok doing all she could to make me comfortable. Thank you for the part of the tour we got to do with you, and will use you again on our next visit to amazing Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank your so much for a wonderful review, Gina. I am really happy that you enjoyed the Tsukiji Market. Hope you have a good time in the rest of your stay in Tokyo and that I will meet you, Mitchel and your family again! Take care!! Junko

Junko was prompt and friendly and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed the tour with her. We did get a little lost trying to find the hedgehog/rabbit/chinchilla/otter cafe in harajuku but the grandkids sure had fun. Thank you Junko for your kind interaction with the youngsters.

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Carrie! I had a good time with your family. Your grandchildren are really smart and cute. Hope to see you again in 2020. Junko

“ Customized tour ”

It was very memorable tour. We had a plan, but it was flexible, so I could decide to spend more time in some areas on the spot. Junk is very knowledgeable and I had no problem communicating, despite me not being a native English speaker.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. I am very happy that you enjoyed my tour. And thank you for booking another tour in Kamakura. I am very looking forward to seeing you again! Junko

“ Customized Tokyo ”

Junko was very informative and adaptive. My three days with her were not your typical see the Sights. Being a foodie , led to some off the beaten path not usually requested places. Combine that with the "normal" tour activities it was a very enjoyable time. She is extremely organized and able to help with translations and directions. I would recommend her without hesitation. Especially for customization.

Junko:

Thank you so much for a nice review. I am so happy you enjoyed a day with me. I had a great fun with you Hope you had a wonderful days for the rest of your stay in Tokyo. Thank you again. Junko

“ A great all day tour ”

Junko was wonderful! She met me in the hotel lobby exactly on time and we were off! She was flexible and helpful, and I saw so many things! Junko also made me feel more comfortable with the rest of my Tokyo visit, answering many questions about the culture, things to do, things to avoid, and how to not stand out. I will gladly use her again in the future!

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Phil! I am so happy to hear you had a good time. I really enjoyed talking with you about Tokyo. Hope you come back to Japan in near future and we can meet again.

“ Awesome tour in Tokyo ”

We had a great time with Junko during our time in Tokyo. She was very well prepared with the itinerary. She was also very accommodating when we needed to change our plans last minute. She was very sweet and thoughtful with advices of certain crowded areas because we were traveling with a toddler. We were able to visit many attractions with her help. She gave some great advices for using the subway since Tokyo metro was very complicated. We thoroughly enjoyed spending two days with Junko. When we make a return trip to Tokyo in the future we would definitely book her again.

Junko:

Thank you for your review, Thy! It's so nice to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I also had a lovely time with you and your family. Your boy is really adorable. There are a lot of lovely places to visit in Japan. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and see you then. Thank you again for your wonderful review and take good care.
