We had a fantastic day with Atsuko. Very personable, knowledgeable and helpful.
Thank you for your great reviw and thank you for sharing your precious time with me yesterday. Hope you have a wonderful time in Kyoto and Nozawa onsen to ski.
Atsuko was very professional and on time. She also was very courteous and accommodating and did not mind if I took some extra time exploring at some locations. Her English is fluent and I did not have any trouble understanding at all. She is also prompt with her responses and answered all questions that I had. In addition, I did not have to spend any extras for transportation as she had her own subway pass. I would definitely request for Atsuko on my next Tokyo visit.
