Amazing tour of Tokyo with a great tour guide!

Hiromi was an amazing tour guide. She was very quick to respond to inquiries and worked with me to create a personalized tour of Tokyo. She even helped me find my Japanese pancakes that I wanted and could not leave Tokyo without trying them. She is very knowledgeable, her tour hit all the highlights we wanted, she navigated the crazy Tokyo subway like a pro and got us to each destination without any issues. Hiromi is awesome, if you come to Tokyo, please do yourself a favor and hire Hiromi!!!! Thanks for a great tour!!!!!

Well organized and prepared

Hiromi was well prepared for the tour. She took me to some interesting places and i was able to accomplish what i was looking for. I would just add a comment..compared with other similar tours i took, the tour would be much better if Hiromi would throw in more interesting facts about Japan in general as we walk from place to place and not just when we get to the place. She definitely answered all my questions but other tourguides i had were able to bring up very intetesting facts about Japan and tbe lications we were visiting that I would never ask about because i would not know to ask.That nade those tours so much more intetesting.But that is just FYI....

Hiromi Y.
