You will learn what Ukiyo-e are and how it inspired 19th century artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas and many more.

Fabulous first day in Tokyo with Mari.

Mari was polite, very interesting, personable, and knowledgeable. She was very thoughtful in providing us all with surgical masks for protection during the corona virus pandemic. Mari was helpful in providing helpful tips for the rest of our time planned in Tokyo. I highly recommend utilising Triplelights and booking Mari whilst in Tokyo. It was a great way for us family of five to see some of the highlights of this amazing city and help us become familiar with navigating the metro. I would definitely use Triplelights again. Thank you Mari for a memorable first time in Tokyo.

Thank you very much for your great review, Kate. I’m impressed that all of your family members are friendly, polite and intelligent. I really enjoyed talking with you on various topics. I’m sure you will have more fun in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nozawa. I hope this Japan trip will be fruitful experience for your family. Thank you again and hope to see you again.

Very Helpful Guide

Mari was a lovely lady who had a personalised note waiting for us at our hotel. She met us there and was adaptable for our first day to organise our rail and metro passes as well. She took us to an amazing lunch spot and was very patient with my tired boys. Mari would probably be better suited to a couple, as my boys were a challenge, though she was very kind and did her best. Thank you Mari for all your help introducing us to Tokyo.

Mari.k K.

Thank you for our review. I am glad you liked Maisen’s lunch. It was pity that your children were too tired from last night flight and gave up going to Mori Digital Museum in Odaiba. I am sure all of you will have a wonderful time in Hakuba, Nagano. Please enjoy skiing with Japanese-power snow.

Amazing Night Tour with Limited Time

Due to our limited time and in the evening, hiring a tour guide (Mari) was our best choice to get the most out of our short stay. Mari was friendly, professional, and well versed in the history of Narita and Japan in General. Mari assisted/guided in storing our luggage, transit and check-in at our hotel even before our tour started. Once we began, we walked through Narita and stopped by many places en route to the Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. On our way back to the hotel, she made mention of popular restaurants in the area where we enjoyed delectable ramen to warm us up. Thank you Mari!

Mari.k K.

Thank you very much for your excellent review. I really appreciated that you gave me a chance to guide you in Narita at night. I really admire you that you take care of your niece with love. You have warm-heated and friendly characters which I really like. Because we had such a nice time, I almost forgot that we strolled in dark at night. Thank you very much again.

Very nice and recommended

Mari was very helpful and patient in taking us through our trip. She made the effort to pick us up from hotel. She also explained the history behind the various places we visited. We told we are vegetarian and she found a great lunch place on the tour. Highly recommended.

Mari.k K.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. It was my pleasure to guide you in Tokyo. I also think that the vegetarian restaurant was delicious. We were lucky to see beautiful leaf-coloring in Rikugi-en Garden. I hope Jessica feels better now. Please enjoy the rest of your journey in Japan. Thank you again.
