“ Thank you, Junko ”

We were very happy with our wonderful guide Junko. She was extremely kind and attentive. Even before we met, she already helped us not only plan our day with her, but also answered our questions and made useful suggestions for other days, including very detailed help with planning our trip to Nikko. In Tokyo Junko met us at Tsukiji Market after we had a delicious sushi breakfast in one of the restaurants Junko recommended. Junk showed us around outer market and introduced us to many interesting foods and snacks unique to Japan. Then we spent the full day with Junko looking at the new (Harajuku, Shibuya) and old (Yanaka, Meiji Temple, Ueno, Asakusa). At the end of our long day we felt as if we spent several days in Tokyo (and not 8 hours). During our lunch, Junko selected excellent place ... read more

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Lawrence and Ella! I also had a great time with you...We walked a lot :Tsukiji, Harajuku, Yanaka, etc. After the tour I checked my pedometer that showed 26000 steps!!!! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. I would be very happy to see you again in spring. Junko

“ 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:

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.
