Michiko is very professional, diligent, on-time in appointments, very mindful of itineraries set, and she mindfully catered for our preferences and requirements. She is able and very willing to help. She is most valuable with the type of work she does as a private tour guide in that she is fluent in English, knowledgeable of Japan’s historical events, and very focused in her work. We would not have been able to visit the touristy and interesting places within the two days we were in Yokohama and Tokyo if Michiko was not with us. We highly recommend her. Domo arigato gozaimasu, Michiko! Cheers! Celle and Jun

Dear Celle and Jun, Oh, wow! What a nice review you gave me. Your review made me happy that I am working as a guide. I had a pleasant time with you two. I hope you will come back to Japan. Best regards, Michiko

Fabulous Day!

Michiko extremely knowledgeable and flexible. This is our first trip to Tokyo and we had many questions about basic things like getting around on the subway and what neighbourhoods to go to for unique shopping experiences. She answered all our questions and made us feel confident exploring the city. I would highly recommend Michiko as a guide.

This tour covers major sightseeing spots, Tsukiji outer-Market, Hamarikyu traditional garden, and Asakusa in 5 hours. The outer market has many retail shops and sushi restaurants, so you can still enjoy the bustling market street. After feeling the energy of the market, we move to a beautiful traditional garden, Hamarikyu. It was once a palace and garden of Tokugawa shoguns. From the garden, we ride on a water bus that runs to Asakusa. Please enjoy a one-hour Sumida river cruise to Asakusa.
