Was great to see Tokyo

What a great experience learning about and experiencing Tokyo. I have taken virtual tours before and depending on the group it could get quiet. Not with Yuki, she came prepared with facts, questions and different ways to engage the group. I cannot say enough positive things about Yuki and her tour, trust me you will love it!

Yukiko F.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Chris! I'm so happy to hear that. I appreciate that I can do something for my guests even under this difficult situation. I think it is meaningful to see a real time viewing, what's going on over there now and communicate interactively. I'm always welcome you on Zoom and in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

Excellent!

This was my first trip to Tokyo. I booked 4 hours with Yukiko and it was great! She is very friendly and helpful. She helped me buy a Suica card and explained how to use the metro. We went to Asakusa and Ginza. Yukiko had lots of information to share and even helped me with my shopping! I would book her again and highly recommend her.

Yukiko F.

Thank you for your wonderful review, Liza! I appreciate it. I'm sure that you've been enjoying to stay in Tokyo and discovered many new things for you. Seeing is believing. Even you've watched it on TV or book before, seeing them on your eyes and talking with local people always leave a memorable impression. I always welcome your next visit. Please enjoy the rest of your days in Tokyo. Domo Arigatou!!

Flowers in Kamakura: The Great Buddha, Hasedera Temple, and Eishoji Temple etc.

Kamakura

Kamakura is a very healing city, which became the capital of Samurai at the end of the 12th century, and has a lot of temples where we can see lovely flowers. We will ride a train for approximately an hour or so from Tokyo/Yokohama/Kawasaki area to visit there. Appreciating the flowers, some temples and shrines, we can also enjoy the beautiful twilight seaview.

My favorite Kamakura!

Kamakura
7 hours

I've been a guide of Kamakura for a long time, having noticed that the nature adds an extra tastes to the peaceful atomosphere of temples and shrines in Kamakura. Plum blossoms, cherry blossoms, azalea, hydrangea, roses, crape myrtles, colored leaves, moss, etc and Mt. Fuji! Let me choose some best spots by the time of the year!! Green tea and 'Masamune' swordsmith is included in this tour too.

Private tour  "My favorite Kamakura"

Kamakura

KAMAKURA! What a perfect place to escape from daily bustlness. The town famous for zen-buddhism and as the first de-facto capital ever established by samurais gives us splendid time to enjoy the rustic but solemn atmosphere.
