A very happy family of Studio Ghibli Fans!

We had a full day with Shu. It was an exciting and engaging experience for all; including our 3 kids (ages 5, 10 and 12). Shu has a wealth of knowledge about Studio Ghibli films and history. I really appreciated his kind and gentle nature, and answering all the kids questions (no mattet the subject). We went to the Studio Ghibli Museum and the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum. The kids were enthralled to spend the morning at the Ghibli museum, it is an amazing hand crafted space; while we didn't like that you could not take photos inside it cerainly made the experience more special. We attended the Architectural Museum after lunch and Shiu made the experience very engaging for the kids. Shu was able to show the kids how certain scenes in a number of Ghibli movies were directly inspired by the buildings at the museum. The kids enjoyed exploring the buildings and envisaging the movie scenes. We had a great day, one we will not forget any day soon! Thank you Shu for your patience and caring towards my boisterous crew; Donal, Ella and Gregory send their thanks and appreciation for you.

Fabulous!!!

Highly recommended tour and tour guide. We loved every minute of our tour with Shuichi. His tour was informative and interesting. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic day and was so great with the kids. Nothing was too much trouble and and we had a fabulous day. The kids keep asking where Shu is today... They were hoping he was going to be with us every day of our holiday in Tokyo.

Shuichi O.

Thank you for your wonderful comment. I also had a great time with your family, especially with the children. Continue your wonderful trip and please come back to Japan someday in future. Good-by today.
