Amazing experience!

Maru was a fantastic guide and cannot thank her enough for her dedication, patience and openness to accommodate last minute requests. I had a fantastic experience with her as we made our way around Tokyo. She was incredibly helpful with her knowledge as well as adding her own little extra to showcase local hidden gems, recommending places and locations to potentially check-out as we were walking by and always thinking one step ahead. She has a great personality and with the many laughs we had it felt like walking around the city with an old friend. A massive thumbs up as well for being open to join me in a visit to a heavy metal bar in the heart of Shinjuku!! I hope to visit in the future with my wife and son and ask Maru to guide us as well. Until next time!!

Saving the best for last!

Maru was our guide and from the initial contact was very responsive and very proficient in English. She communicated well ensuring we were aligned on the itinerary and meeting details. Maru arrived promptly and was very flexible with the itinerary as we journeyed to many locations having arranged tickets for a beautiful traditional music performance which was exquisite. Maru arrived with a rail pass ready for us and led as to a wonderful local restuarant as we watched the owner prepare delicious sushi for us, certainly both experience were off the beaten track. Grateful to spend such a memorable last day with Maru as a guide. Patricia Norris

Patricia, thank you for the wonderful review for me! The tour with you was so unique and interesting to me, too! We went to a concert of Shamisen performance, and I am glad to know that you enjoyed it. The local restaurant was also fun to me, too! Thank you for choosing me as your guide. I hope I can see you again in the near future! Let's keep in touch☆ Maru

Wonderful Maru!

If you are looking for a native tour guide who is extremely patient (including with young kids), flexible, kind and cheerful, then we highly recommend that your group should spend a day or two with Maru in Tokyo. She was such a wonderful resource as we traversed through the city streets and suburbs to reach the places that we really wanted to see, without getting lost. She has great local insights and has the in-depth experience to be able to help your group plan the perfect day out in Tokyo. We spent two full days with Maru. Our two young kids really loved her, and my wife and I did as well! She also was very responsive in helping us plan our itinerary/schedule well in advance of our arrival in Japan, including helping us to purchase some tickets, which was much appreciated. Thank you so much again, Maru. We have so many lovely memories from our trip!

Maru K.

Dear Roselle, Thank you for the glowing review! Actually, I really love your adorable children like my real kids, and I wanted to be with them longer! We visited many places in Tokyo, such as Asakusa, Ghibli Museum, etc... Hope I can show you much more beautiful places in Japan. Please let me know if you have another opportunity to come to Japan☆ Best regards, Maru

Day tour of Tokyo- Meiju Jingu shrine, Shinjuku, Harajuku and Takeshita

We had a great tour with Maru. She was very helpful especially when one of our group needed urgent replacement of broken spectacles. Even before the trip she had helped with reserving restaurants and also promptly responded to all messages. She ensured our group stuck to schedule and accommodated all our requests. We had a great day with her. Padmanabhan

Maru K.

Thank you so much, Padmanabhan, for the glowing review for me! Your group was 24 pax and quite big, so I enjoyed talking with everybody. The picnic at Shinjuku Gyoen Park was so fun! We bought lunch boxes at Shinjuku Isetan and appreciated cherry blossoms. Thank you for being kind all the time. Hope I can see you again☆ Maru
