Excellent

Yoko met us at our hotel and showed us the historic areas of Tokyo like we requested. She was very informative and her English is better than most people in the U.S.

Jeremy A.

Wow, thank you for your prompt reply. It was fun meeting you and your family. The mom and daughter quiz competition was highlight of the day. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay. Thank you again for the lovely day, Yoko

Great Tour - highly recommend

This was my wife and mine first time in Japan and Yoko was phenomenal. We did a full day tour but that included lunch and some beers with plenty of opportunities to take great photos. Yoko is very friendly and nice and did a great job teaching us about the history and culture through the day but in a very friendly and conversational way. Highly recommend Yoko!

Hubert Z.

I appreciate your great review, Hubert san. I had a great time with you and your lovely wife Brittany san. It is my first time talking about retirement and health care over Asahi Extra Cold at that restaurant. It was so interesting talking with both of you. I started to watch "Tokyo Vice" and looking forward to watching Episode 7 of Season 2 tonight, which broadcast is a little delayed compared to the States. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and come again in the future. Thank you again for the lovely day, Yoko

Ueno Park and East Garden of the Imperial Palace with Yoko - excellent day

When we met Yoko at our hotel, the first thing she did was point out the view of Mount Fuji from the hotel. She said that usually you cannot see it from Tokyo in May. We knew from there that Yoko would be providing valuable information along the way. This tour is important, not only to see the beautiful grounds and shrines, but also because of its links to the past, especially of the Shogun era in Japan in the Edo period. Yoko, brings along her expertise and teaches those she guides. It’s a great learning experience and she keeps photos and drawings of the Edo period with her. It helps make it a great tour. Yoko is also very nice and her English is perfect haven’t spent years in the US. She also helped my wife at a restaurant order with an allergy. We were lucky to have a warm, sunny day with a nice breeze. It was a perfect Saturday in May in Tokyo and a great tour. Thanks Yoko.

Len B.

Thank you so much for such an amazing review, Len san. We were blessed with the perfect weather to explore East Gardens and Ueno Park and I was glad both of you were keen enough to walk to visit the sightseeing spots. Not only Mount Fuji, we could see some cherry blossoms still blooming at East Gardens. I really enjoy the conversations with you. As I have two guests in a row talking about "Tokyo Vice" I started watching it and soon I'm going to finish the 2nd Episode of Season 1. Some scenes of Shogun is quite gross but it is so authentic and "Last Samurai" is a marvelous movie with beautiful Samurai spirits, Bushido, which Ken Watanabe who is also in Tokyo Vice played the role of Last Samurai. I hope you enjoy Kyoto and your cruise too. Thank you again for the lovely day, Len sama and Sheryl sama.

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.

Mt. Fuji isn't always visible, especially when it's hazy. Please choose the spots in the highlights you would like to visit around Kawaguchiko/ Mt. Fuji, based on your interest/preferences, your physical condition and the weather. It depends on which ones you choose, but I'll do my best to arrange it the way you can visit more than three of them but if you choose both Chureito Pagoda and Nemba, you might not be able to choose the other options unless you are willing to use taxis.
