Shopping guide

Had an excellent day with Nobuko, she presented an ideal itinerary for the day and was also flexible with my requirements. Nobuko was friendly and chatty and nothing was too much trouble for her.

Nobuko E.

Dear Jim, Thank you for your wonderful review. I also enjoyed the tour with you yesterday, even though it was horribly hot. Did you try fresh sea foods at Tsukiji Market in this Morning? Anyway , please take care of yourself during the days in Tokyo. I am looking forward to guiding you and your family next time. See you. Nobuko

A special day in Tokyo touring with Nobuko

We had the pleasure of touring Tokyo with Nobuko. Not only was she delightful but also excellent in taking us around Tokyo. We enjoyed a Buddhist fire ceremony and it was one of those really special life experiences. We enjoyed the places she took us but our lunch together was really the highlight of the day as Nobuko took us to a place that we wouldn’t have chosen on our own. We had one of the most delicious meals that we had in Japan. She took us for Japanese pizza, which really wasn’t like pizza at all. Not only was the food fantastic but our conversations with Nobuko greatly enhanced the experience. Nobuko’ English was very easy for us to understand. She made our day special with all her knowledge and personality. Thank you Shelly

Nobuko E.

Dear Shelly, Thank you for your great review!! And I appreciate your souvenir (chocolate biscuits). I have already eaten all of them with my daughter.They were very delicious! I am so happy to know you enjoyed the tour yesterday, because my most favorite place in Tokyo is Fukagawa Fudoson Temple where we watched sacred fire ceremony together. I also enjoyed grilling Japanese pizza called Okonomiyaki with you. Strange can venders were also interesting! I am glad our taste is similar. Please come to Tokyo next time for longer days. I am searching more interesting hidden places for you. See you again! Nobuko

Great experience in Tokyo with Nobu

My family of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our time with Nobu. She helped create an itinerary for my family and was very accommodating when I needed to make a last minute change. We hit up Tsijiki, Akihabara, and Ueno Zoo. She is very knowledgeable about the sites in Tokyo and helped us navigate the subway/train systems. She was also very good with my young daughter so I highly recommend booking her if you have children. She even went out of her way to help us purchase train tickets to Hakone and Kyoto. She is such a nice person and a very awesome tour guide.

Nobuko E.

Dear Ann, Thank you for your fantastic review! It was so cold yesterday, wasn’t it? However, I really enjoyed the zoo tour with your family. What a cute girl Esmee was! I remember my sweet memory of my family trips when my children were very small. I hope all of you will enjoy the trip of Hakone and Kyoto. Please give my best regards to Que!
