What to Expect

The tour will be designed according to your interests and preferences, so it is more flexible than the fixed tours. It normally consists of 3-4 sightseeing spots (The number of spots may be changed according to area we visit and the weather on the day) including "must-visit" places in the center of Tokyo.

--- Move to a sightseeing spot by train / subway ---

One Day in Tokyo

My wife and I recently visited Japan and spent one full day with Mariko touring Tokyo. We found her to be highly responsive throughout the planning stages and very helpful during the tour. Although the transportation system in Tokyo is excellent, it's an extremely crowded city. Being with Mariko allowed us to see far more than we'd have been able to experience on our own had we tried to figure it all out independently.

Hello Kevin, thank you for your posting your positive review. I am glad if l could help making your trip enjoyable through the tour and you became a big fan of our country! I hope you will visit Japan again with your wife or family because there are plenty of attractive places, especially local areas, other than big cities like Tokyo and Osaka. Thank you again for sharing your precious moment with me!! Mariko
