We truly enjoyed Michiko’s company during our tour. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and gave us an historical perspective of Tokyo. Michiko made our first adventure in Tokyo a delight.
Dear Maureen and John, Thank you for giving me an excellent review. I'm glad to hear from you again and know you enjoyed my tour. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan ! And I'm sure you enjoyed sharing time with your nephew over the dinner. Take care, Michiko
Michiko was great. We didnt want the usual and she arranged a day to suit us. Teamlab which is worth experiencing followed by teppanyaki lunch. She oriented us with many underground routes to get around followed by drinks at a sake bar. We would have liked to use her again but it wasnt possible.
Dear Gail and Peter, Thank you for taking your valuable time to send me a great review. My only regret is not being able to guide in Hakone due to my sudden hospitalization. But I am happy to hear that you liked my arrangement of the Hokone tour. Thank you for your concern, the surgery went well and I have fully recovered now. We only had one day together, but it was a lot of fun. If you have a chance to come to Tokyo again, please contact me. Take care, Michiko
Michiko M. Was great she's very knowledgeable of the gardens, she's very patient with all the questions. The temples and shrine visits were amazing. Thank you
Dear Mariano Thank you very much for giving me an excellent review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stroll through the town despite the hot and humid weather. It was a pleasure to join you on a walk in the garden and share a delicious shaved ice treat. It was a refreshing way to cool down and made me very happy. Thank you again, Michiko
Very pleasant and informative Very good English and nothing was too much trouble
Dear Della, Thank you for giving me an excellent review. I enjoyed sharing time with all of you. Especially, our lunchtime at the lovely restaurant in Asakusa. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your days in Japan! Michiko
