Concise Japanese history tour. Recommended especially for those who like to overview Japan’s history and art at the start and the end of your trip. Focusing on the early modern era in Ueno Park, we survey the entire history at Japanese Gallery in Tokyo National Museum. It’s not in a lecture style, but in relaxed, interactive way. Why don’t you share its real treasures with me, an Ueno local?

Professional, Knowledgeable, & Accommodating

Tomoko is professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She was a pleasure to spend the day with. We had so much fun, she connected with my family right from the start. There was a hiccup with one of our reservations, she straightened things out, and we made it into our Team Labs digital art experience. Tomoko also gave us a little history of all the places we visited and took our pictures as well. We had no problems communicating with her; via text, email, and in person. She always responded and we are fortunate to have found her. Thank you Tomoko!

Larry P.

Thank you for your heartwarming and positive review. When you found out while shopping for knives in Kappabashi that tickets for TeamLab had not been purchased properly, we both thought, "Oh my God!" I must confess that I wasn't sure if I could sort it out, but I was so glad that the fact that you had been looking forward to trying to get tickets for over a month was well explained and documented so that we could enjoy the experience together. I think our vibes were passed on to them, don't you think so? Thank you for the beautiful day. I really enjoyed the time with all your family, Lyn and Larry:)

Tour in Tokyo with Tomoko

Tomoko was an excellent tour guide! She was efficient in planning our itinerary and was accommodating when we requested to make changes. We were very fortunate to have her show us around Tokyo. She is so pleasant, personable, knowledgeable and helpful. We learned a lot about the city as well as it's past history. My wife and I could not have asked for a better guide. We really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend her. Thanks so much Tomoko, you have provided us with great memories! Joyce and Steve

Steve N.

I too feel very fortunate to be able to share this truly enjoyable day today with you, Joyce and Steve. After cold, rainy and windy weather yesterday, it was a truly spring-like day today, and the long-awaited cherry blossoms have started to bloom little by little. I am sure there will be more blooms during the few days you are in Tokyo. Please enjoy them and take good pictures to share with your family and friends. I hope to see you again next time you plan to visit Hiroshima, the islands of the Seto Inland Sea, or Kyushu.

Tomoko felt like a friend by the end of the day

We came on a family holiday to Japan and only had a few days to spend there. The culture is so different to what we are used to and we were somewhat trepidatious about hiring a guide. We need not have worried for a second. Tomoko has her own family and really paid attention in making sure everyone had a good time. For the kids she helped us find the best toy shops and cat cafe's and for the adults she brought us to a really cool sushi place. Tomoko has travelled a lot herself and our shared passion for seeing new things meant we finished the day swapping stories of places had we had gone to over a beer together. Even though we only had a day together, I felt as though we had made a new friend by the end of it. Such a wonderful person. I really can't recommend her enough. Whatever your preferences, I believe Tomoko will help you get the most from your trip.

Hi James, I know you had a busy time during your trip and for a few weeks after you returned home. So, thank you for taking the time to write such a heartwarming review. It has been almost a month since then, but I clearly remember that fun Sunday with you all. Starting from a cafe with cute cats and cat lovers to a special toy store in Akihabara, I feel like Max and Zoe took me to a whole new world. Please tell them I thank them. It was quite helpful at the first planning stage that you and Priscilla told me what would make the kids happy. They knew that their parents thought of their joy and satisfaction first, so they too enjoyed watching the adults have fun at the sushi restaurant. I really enjoyed our talks in that evening. Thank you again:)
