Great intro to Tokyo tour!

Junko was great leading our family (2 adults and 2 kids) on a half-day Tokyo tour. She was attentive to our needs and understood that having kids meant being flexible and responsive.

Yanaka, Nezu shrine

Junko was an excellent guide. She provided a lot of backup historical information, which was very helpful. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Junko N.

Thank you so much for such a great review, Eva. I am very glad to have helped you know Nezu and Yanaka and the history. There still remain beautiful traditional gardens and quiet places even in Tokyo. I hope you would come to Japan again in the cherry blossom season. Thank you again and take care! Junko

Very understanding and caring guide

From initial emails to hugs goodbye, we enjoyed our time with Junko. She was accommodating in our itinerary choices and flexible through tour time. My wife is diabetic and Junko was understanding of her need for breaks and meals. We wished to experience the off the beaten path food places and our first night we enjoyed two for beer, sake and food. She’s very passionate about her city and it showed. You will be educated, enlightened and inspired by her.....thank you Junko! Rory and Sandra

Junko N.

Thank you for such a wonderful review, Rory and Sandra! I am very happy to have helped you have a good time in Tokyo. It was nice to have exchanged information about our families including our dogs Diego and Coco. They are rescued dogs. What a coincidence.!! I hope you will make great memories in Japan. Thank you again and take care. Junko

Tokyo Up-to-You Tour

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.
