Very pleasant and informative Very good English and nothing was too much trouble
Michiko, was very nice and had a lovely day planned, but I got sick that morning and we couldn’t do all she had planned. She is a lovely person and I would ask her to be my guide again. Thank you, Michiko
Dear Gayla, I'm happy to hear from you again. Thank you for giving me an excellent review. How are you doing? I hope you get better and enjoy your cruise around Japan. However a short time, we had a pleasant shopping time. I'm sure your family would be pleased to get Yukata and Obi we chose earnestly. Take care and enjoy your life! Michiko
We had a lovely fun few hours with Michiko. Her English was good and she was a real pleasure to be with. She kindly met us at our hotel in Shibuya which made things much easier for tackling the Tokyo subway on a packed Saturday night. We had a quick dash around Harajuku and then on to Shinjuku for a few drinks and bites to eat. And she also showed us a couple of places we didn't already know hidden around the back streets. Thank you for the Tokyo memories.
Dear Simon, Thank you for taking the time to write this excellent review for me. However Mame-Shiba Inu cafe was so crowded, we could find another puppy cafe. I wonder if you enjoyed it, as it was a very short stay in Harajuku. In Shinjuku, thank you for buying me drinks and food. I enjoyed sharing time with you. Thanks to you, I found the new shop in Omoideyokocho, I will use it next time for my tour. Please take care. Michiko .
We did the "Full day tour in Tokyo" together with Michiko, and were very pleased with the experience. Michiko was friendly and knowledgeable, and was happy to modify the tour itinerary according to our requests. In addition to taking us to see the fantastic Tokyo sights, she brought us to a really excellent tofu restaurant for lunch. Overall, a great experience.
Dear Christina, I'm glad to hear from you again. Thank you for sending me an excellent review. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed the tofu kaiseki. I believe that you also enjoyed other sightseeing spots in Japan. Michiko
