Tour of Yokyo

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.

Short visit to catch a little of Tokyo between flights from Bangkok to Newark.

Chiaki was very gracious and flexible and made our short time valuable. Enjoyed the market, walks and the lunch.

Chiaki K.

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!
