We spent our first day in Tokyo with Kumiko. It was a great experience and one I would highly recommend. She helped us get Suica cards which were very useful as we navigated the Tokyo transportation system. Kumiko enabled us to efficiently see the highlights of Tokyo (Temples, Shrines, Harjuku and other areas) without spending time getting lost and trying to figure out directions in train stations. Her English is very very good and she explained the history and background of the places we visited. Thank you Kumiko!
Dear Susan and Tim, Thank you so much for your feedback. I certainly enjoyed the time with both of you. It's easy to catch a cold in between seasons and be exhausted because of jeg lag, different cultures, and the environment. Please take care of yourself and enjoy the rest of your journey in Japan! Kumiko
Kumiko was an amazing guide. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about Tokyo. She took us to many places and some that tourist don’t know about. We had a great day experiencing the city. Thank you Kumiko!!

Thanks to Kumiko for getting me around while it was raining. We managed to see the Senso-ji temple and walk through the laneways before the rain got heavy. Then we made our way to a few shopping centers to stay dry before returning. The rain made for some great photos!!! I thoroughly enjoyed my day!!
Thank you for your feedback. I WAS reallu lucky to have an opportunity to see you and show you Tokyo in a rain! Please come back with your daughters ! Best regards, Kumiko
Kumiko was my guide for a day in Kamakura. I found her to be very pleasant, warm, and interestng. Her knowledge of the are was impressive. She is very much a great lady and I was fortunate to have her as my guide.
