Great memories of 2 days touring with Noriko

We had 2 outstanding days with Norika. She is charming. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She planned our itinerary well. I have some mobility issues and she worked out how best to do things. We requested we use taxis (our cost obviously) rather than the underground. She has lots of Information, enjoys her work, and interacts positively with her clients A highlight was to see a traditional Shinto wedding at one of the major shrines. And a couple, brought their one month baby for blessings. The mother was beautifully dressed in a kimono. Noriko quickly adapted our schedule to allow us more time there She took us to local places to eat which was great

Private Shopping Tour

Noriko was very kind in coming all the way from her home town out of Tokyo to meet us at the Lobby of our hotel. She guided us by train and subway to Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku. We got the chance to go around to the popular places for shopping in Tokyo. We had a very interesting lunch in Shinjuku something we had not tried before and it was super delicious! Thank you Noriko for your recommendation! All family members got to see busy shopping areas and also buy cute, unique gifts and items. We had a lovely day, it was very worthwhile and Noriko you are the kindest, funny and sweet and helpful person we have met, can’t thank you enough for your time to come with us on our shopping tour! We would definitely recommend you to others as a guide! Kindest regards Haylie & Family from Australia

The sweetest guide you can meet in Tokyo.

Noriko really made me and my family feel at home with her. She was very helpful with the children always. Stayed much longer, went out of her way and even made serveral restaurant reservations for the following days when she would not be with us. You are great. Thank you.

Thank you for your heartwarming message. I had a fantastic time with you and your family. I really enjoyed talking with you in a restaurant. I'm glad you could try Ramen noodles at Tokyo Station and enjoyed it finally. Your wife, two sons and a daughter are so lovely. I was so happy to be with you and your family. I hope you'll come back to Japan and see you again one day. Thank you!!!
