We had a blast and learned a lot about Tokyo and the japanese culture in such a lovely way. We enjoyed the time with Chiaki, every single minute! She was very helpful with recommendations on museums and interesting spots. Arigato gosaimasu, Chiaki-san!
Thank you Carmen-san, for your great review! It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed talking about the similarities and differences between two countries, Germany and Japan. I hope you enjoy your time in Japan. Please let me know anything I can do. Arigato Gozaimasu!
Chiaki was an excellent guide, tailoring a programme of sightseeing around the time we had available. We saw a huge amount in a limited time thanks to Chiaki and would highly recommend her.
Thank you for your wonderful review, Theresa. Although we had short tour for about six hours, we had beautiful day and a fun time. I hope you will have great success in your business and visit Japan again in the near future. Best wishes to you, Julian and Gloria!
Chiaki was very gracious and flexible and made our short time valuable. Enjoyed the market, walks and the lunch.
Dear Craig-san and Barbara-san, thank you for your review! Your visit was really short and I still have many places to show you in Tokyo. So I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to see you! Thank you again and please take care!
