Quick tour of two restaurants

We had a very nice time with Rieko on our first night in Tokyo. She took us to an izakaya and a okonomiyaki restaurant. We enjoyed our time together.

The most amazing food tour of Tokyo!

We are a family of five, and spent a full day exploring the food delights of Tokyo with the wonderful Rieko, starting with the mindblowing Tsukiji Market. It is a foodies' paradise, and even though the main fish market has moved off-site, there is plenty to see and do. We walked through the small fish market still at Tsukiji, then explored the surrounding outer market of shops and stalls, sampling food as we went. After an incredible sushi lunch, we headed off to see kitchenware in Asakusa, had beautiful yakitori in an izakaya in Ginza and finished off with okonomiyaki and monja in Tsukishima. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful and kind - and gave us all a good experience we will never forget. This was just the most incredible, unforgettable food tour and we would highly recommend this and Rieko as a guide!

Serena A.

Dear Serena, Thank you for your great review! I am very glad you enjoyed my tour very much and liked foods I recommended. You and your family were very kind and nice to me, so I had a very good time with you like we have been friends for a long time. Since you all like flour things and you are a big chef, you may enjoy okonomiyaki and takoyaki party at home. I look forward to seeing you again in Japan, and I will look for something more attractive. Thank you again and have a safe flight! Rieko

A Busy Day in Tokyo

Rieko was a knowledgeable tour guide. We had a sightseeing-filled day in the intense heat, but she made the experience exciting and engaging. I recommend taking a taxi and public transportation if you plan to go in the summer, since many of the sites are outdoors and have little to no shade.

Michaela T.

Dear Michaela san, Thank you for your warm review. I am glad you enjoyed my tour. It was indeed a very hot day and I will take that into account. Thank you very much for your suggestion. I hope you two had a very good time in Japan and will come back someday in the near future. Many thanks. Rieko
