This was the first time I decided to have a local guide and I think it totally worth it. It was raining but we had a great day together. Eiko always asked me what I preferred and tailored the schedule per the weather condition and my preference. When I told her I was interested in architectural design, she took me to see the new Olympic stadium, which was not on the original schedule. The very reason I would want to have a local tour guide is to have conversations with some one from the area without language barrier. With that being said, having Eiko with me elevated my trip in Tokyo. Eiko was really nice and easy to talk to. She is knowledgeable to answer all my questions, providing insider’s point of view. It was a lot of fun to hear the behind-scene stories. She also has such a positive personality that makes you smile. I would say I am very happy and satisfied to spend 8h with Eiko. お疲れ様でした！本当にありがとうございました！?
Hi Xinyu! Thank you so much for writing such a nice review so quickly!! First of all let me say thank you that you walked all the way in that heavy rain today.(It was unusual as December.) As a result, we were able to visit some extra places designed by famous architects including the New National Stadium and New Are Center Tokyo. It was a very interesting tour for me too especially because you also taught me many things. Thank you. :-) We ate mochi, onigiri, IMO Buso or sea grapes and pink strawberries. We enjoyed goldfish scooping and shopping at Tokyu Hands. I’m hoping you can come back next year for Tokyo Summer Olympics!! Until then, take care!! See you soon! Eiko
