I'm so grateful i got blessed with such a pleasant guide as Michiko. She was so helpful in setting up my agendas as to what we wanted to see in Tokyo and also gave us multiple sample itineraries. She met us at our hotel lobby and and we are promptly off on our adventure. It was so nice having someone guide us around Tokyo esp the transportation systems. I think one could def do it on their own but it sure was nice having someone take out the stress of getting around. It was also very nice having her tell us exactly what each thing we were looking at was and presenting the history behind a structure/shrine. My travel companion was a Vegan and Michiko was so kind that she took time to find and reserve a restaurant for her without us even telling her to do so. When i come back to Ja... read more
Dear William, Thank you for your good review. I was encouraged by your words greatly. I really appreciate it! Best regards, Michiko
She doesn't show up for Mt. Fuji trip.
Quick request to go see Mt Fuji is difficult to meet in this rainy season. I think it would help you, but it did just the opposite. I'm sorry to hear your review, in spite of all my efforts. I was not able to meet your sudden request, " We'd like to go see Mt. Fuji tomorrow." If you'd let me know in advance, I could surely take you to there, using another route. Even though It was three days before. I had asked you many times "Where would you like to go". But I had not got any answer related to Mt. Fuji until just before the day. You know, this time of the year, rainy season, Mt. Fuji rarely shows up. I thought that you might not see Mt. Fuji from my best Fuji tour, Hakone route. And the main attraction of my tour to enjoy dynamic views of Mt. Fuji. from a ropeway is not availab... read more
Michiko was on time to meet us at Narita airport. She showed us where to store our extra luggage’s at the airport, oriented us with the JR pass and subway system, SUICA card. She accompanied us to Tokyo station and got us into our hotel safely. This was a stress free arrival for us since we have two young kids with us. We would have used her for our sightseeing guide around Tokyo but unfortunately it rained most of the time we were in Tokyo. But the knowledge she shared with us was great. Thank you Michiko!!
Thank you for your good review. I was really happy meeting your cute children and charming wife. Please give my regards to your wonderful family. Thank you Dondino!!
Enjoyed our day in Kamakura with Michiko-San. She was very sweet and kind. Very prepared and knowledgeable. My daughter and I had a wonderful time.
" A peaceful and precious time " Thank you for your good review and giving me a great opportunity to study the history of Kamakura from a religious perspective. It was also a peaceful and precious time for me.
I had never been to Tokyo before and had no idea where things were. I sent a message listing the things I wanted to see, and Michiko created a customized tour for me that far exceeded my expectations!
Dear Jeanne, Thank you for your good review. I greatly appreciate your cooperation that let us carry out the busiest tour pleasantly without delay. By the way, I like your class on "info-graph" that makes it easier to see things from a different perspective and that could help human society. It was nice talking to you. Please enjoy Japan! Best regards, Michiko
Michiko met us at NRT and walked us through the process of getting our metro card (Suica) and then a ticket for the Skyliner to get us from NRT to Tokyo. We visited a few shrines on the way to our hotel. We met on the second day and visited the Bonsai garden and museum then walked around the area visiting several bonsai nurseries. We had a lunch break, then went to Kawagoe and visited a couple of shrines, seeing a fire ceremony. Following that, we came back to Tokyo and visited Shinjuku garden and then a shopping mall to pick up an adapter to charge my laptop (no 3 wire plugs in our room). Michiko heard us talking about a place called Yakatori Alley, or something like that, so she took us on a walk through there as it was very close to Shinjuku station. Our third day began with a su... read more
Dear Guy, Thank you for your good review. It's only because of your cooperation that made the tour special in spite of the holiday congestion. I've learned a guiding principle for human life from you two. Your words will uphold me greatly now and forever. And I've also leaned the function of the V-shaped roof material. I greatly appreciate your kindness. Bon voyage! Best regards, Michiko
I booked a full day with Michiko. We went to Saitama to visit the Bonsai museum and then on to the Edo-period village of Kawagoe which was lovely. As a solo traveller I appreciated Michiko meeting me at my hotel. I found Michiko to be professional and helpful. I had difficulty communicating with Michiko in English which meant questions and discussions were limited throughout the day.
Dear Tracey, Thank you for your honest views. Actually, I felt the same way as you wrote. Sometimes I couldn't catch your English and I gave up deepening our communication especially about religion which is still deeply rooted in the people's lives today. But your review will be my great motivation for future tours. I will practice my English more and more and make every effort for better communication with my guests. I hope you've had a good time in Japan. Best regards, Michiko
Michiko was very kind and attentive. We visited many parts of Tokyo that aren't always on the normal tourist trail. She was happy to stop when something caught our interest and kept us on a positive schedule so we could see as much as possible. My family and I feel like we made a new friend here in Japan. Thank you Michiko.
Dear David, Thank you for your kind words. I am honored as a guide by your comments. I was happy to make the acquaintance of your wonderful family. Good-bye, and thanks for the lovely time. Best regards, Michiko
Michiko is an excellent guide She came to pic us up from Narita airport. It took a long time for us to take Sim card. She was very patient . We arrived Narita around 3 by the time we reached hotel it was very late in the evening she was with us all that long
Dear Aminath, Thank you for your review. Let ' enjoy the rest of the tour! Best regards, Michiko
Mchiko san was friendly and informative. She's so sweet and nice. We started off with the sumida river cruise which she recommended and it was worth it. She also recommended a halal unagi restaurant for lunch which was really superb as all three of us love unagi and it was the best unagi we've ever tasted. The visit to the railroad museum was awesome. Thank you so much for helping us out and she goes beyond her limits to help us out. Thanks for the most memorable trip to Saitama.
Dear Siti Thank you for your kind review. I've had a good time with you all. Hoping you'll stay well. Best regards, Michiko
Excellent knowledge and hospitality by Michiko. She's very knowledgeable, very patient and understanding. We enjoyed our trip to Akihabara and Asakusa with her. Thank you Michiko!
Dear Anita, Thank you for your good review. It will be my great motivation for future tours. I've had a great time with you and your son. Especially, the tea break with you at that place will become a pleasant memory in my mind. Best regards, Michiko
Michiko KNOWS WHAT SHE IS DOING! I do really appreciate the patience she has with us, tour was amazing she was so helpful to mention places to visit,food,and gifts stores. She was fast to reply to all my questions even do we are in 2 times zones.
Hi Gloria, Thank you for your nice review ! I'll try to meet guests' expectation. Best regards, Michiko
We have spent five wonderful days with Michiko seeing as much of Japan as we could each day. We learned how to navigate the subway system. Michiko taught us the “ Japanese Weave “—how to move forward in the crowded underground subway corridors. That skill proved invaluable getting from point A to point B. One highlight of our various tours was a visit to the Bonsai Museum. Michiko is a member of the Bonsai Academy and an accomplished bonsai artist who explained everything about this art form. I could not believe we saw some bonsai art that has been living for over 1000 years! One example of going the extra mile—Michiko got a cold yesterday and lost her voice. So, for our tour today she wrote out everything important for us to know in English on a pad she carried with her. She also wore... read more
My Wife and I had 1 day in Tokyo with the lovely Michiko - what a lovely lady! she was very informative, helpful, willing to listen and a pleasure to be with. We would certainly recommend her as a tour guide around Tokyo - we had great interaction before we even met, she listened to what we wanted and delivered on what we asked for. Michiko's English was very good and she was easy to understand, which is important. Michiko took the time to explain things that we didn't undestand fully and kept at a pace that was comfortable, even though it was very hot when we visited. Thank you once again, Michiko! :)
Hi Ian, Thank you for writing a wonderful review for me. I really appreciate it. It will be my great motivation for future tours! In fact, I was deeply impressed with your knowledge of Japan. I was so happy to share a pleasant time with you two. I owe everything to you. I hope I can see you again! Best regards, Michiko
Very friendly, knowledgeable and kind
Hi Tiffany, Thank you for writing a good review for me. It will be my great motivation for future tours! Best regards, Michiko
Michiko is an excellent, caring, and attentive tour guide. We highly recommend her. My wife and I were guided by Michiko to view the cherry blossoms in Tokyo and then visited a Buddhist ceremony. We communicated our interests with Michiko and she went out of her way to make sure we would have a great tour. If you want a great tour guide, please hire Michiko!
Hi Free, Thank you for your wonderful review. I really appreciate it. See you again. Best, Michiko
