Our perfect guide for our fist day in tokyo

We were so lucky to have Tomoko introduce our family to Tokyo. She met us at our rental apartment and showed us how to navigate the train system and took us the various destinations around Tokyo. She shared her knowledge of each area and made sure we took pictures to memorialize our adventures.

Naomi F.

Thank you for your prompt review with positive comments, Naomi. I really enjoyed sharing time with you, three-generation family. I was surprised to see your mother walking smiling and not showing any fatigue despite the heat and jet lag. Also, I enjoyed chatting with her in Japanese. Sincerely hoping you all will have a great time during your further stay in Japan. - Tomoko

Fantastic and one of the best guides

As soon as we met Tomoko she almost became family and it was so comfortable to talk to her and figure out things. We spend the whole day with her and she was really good. She had everything figured out. Even though it was raining and weather was bad, she made sure we all saw everything and had a great time. Thank you Tomoko again…..

Amit T.

Thank you, Amit, for such a lovely review. After enjoying Owakudani, we had many challenges that day, including the breakdown of the ropeway and rain at Kawaguchiko, but our desire to enjoy ourselves prevailed! Conversation with your lovely smart girl was a real pleasure, and the constant kind smile of your wife also made the trip even more enjoyable. Thank you again for finding me out and working with me. My best regards to you, Seher, and Meera!- Tomoko

Excellent Kamakura/Enoshima tour with Tomoko

We met as strangers but left as family! From our first contact to touring with Tomoko, she was accommodating, flexible, informative, and ready to answer our many questions. She put together a great itinerary with our special requests for our personalized tour. She was very attentive to our wants and needs. Upon arrival at our hotel, we were warmly welcomed and instantly became friends. Tomoko is an excellent English speaking tour guide who taught us about the culture and history of Kamakura/Enoshima. She is warm, friendly, patient, engaging, and well-organized. We accomplished a lot in our one-day walking tour going to 2 temples and 1 shrine in Kamakura and 1 shrine on Enoshima Island. She recommended the perfect places to shop for omiyage/snacks. Lunch on Enoshima Island was AMAZING! Due to the hot humid weather and crowds during hydrangea season, she adjusted our itinerary to make it a more enjoyable day. Tomoko is also a great photographer/videographer and knows the best spots to take wonderful pictures/videos. At the end of our day, she recommended returning back on the train in the green car-reserved seats. It was a great suggestion! Even though we did not want the day to end, it was nice to relax and take a nap in comfort after a fabulous day of sightseeing. We highly recommend booking a tour with Tomoko! Tomoko-Thank you again! You’re a remarkable tour guide. You’ve become a cherished friend and part of our ohana (family) during our travels. The laughter, shared stories, and the sense of adventure you infused into our private tour created bonds that will linger in our memories for a lifetime. Your dedication to your craft and the genuine connections we made during this unforgettable adventure made it an exceptional tour. We feel so very fortunate to have met you, and we look forward to crossing paths again in the near future in Japan & in Hawaii. Aloha ‘Oe (Farewell) A Hui Hou Kakou- (Until we meet again)! Tisha, Keith, Robyn, Milton

Tisha T.

Wow! Thank you so much, Tisha, for taking your time to write such a grand descriptive review for me. I was very motivated because you did a lot of research beforehand about my hometown, Kamakura, and each of you made individual requests. It was a very satisfying day for me, too, especially because at the end we were able to complete our dragon mission on Enoshima! We had to walk to Sasuke Inari in a sweat because we couldn't catch a cab, we were surrounded by groups of students here and there, and there were times when what was supposed to be a foodie tour almost became a fasting tour, but that made the late lunch at Enoshima even more delicious! Mahalo for the wonderful souvenirs and lots of smiles from Hawaii. I am also very much looking forward to seeing you all again, Tisha, Keith, Robyn, and Milton. またね、Matane! (See you soon!) - Tomoko

Kamakura Day Hike with Local Expert

Kamakura
9 hours

Kamakura is a small, quiet, lovely town, one hour south of Tokyo. It was Japan's political center around the 13th century. This tour is especially recommended for nature lovers who seek a day-escape from busy Tokyo. It covers many hidden spots never visited in a large group tour. You will visit some famous spots like the Great Buddha as well. Kamakura is my hometown when I spent half of my life and I still often visitt to see my family. I'm sure you can enjoy the area just like locals do.
