Tokyo Cherry Blossom Tour

Tokyo
5 hours

Great start to our trip

We asked for a few hour tour with Grant to see Cherry Blossoms around the city. Grant was incredibly nice and thoughtful throughout our tour. With two small kids, he was adjustable with the tour and provided insight and history along the way that made it fun to learn. He was very flexible when we needed to stop and eat or rest! Highly recommend Grant as he knows the area well, makes great recommendations for food and for other sites to see while on our trip. He also showed and recommended places our kids wanted to go once he knew what they were into. Great tour and great start to our trip!!!

Honjo Life Safety Learning Center Visit

We visited the Honjo Life Safety Learning Center today in Tokyo because I wanted to experience the typhoon and earthquake simulations - I highly recommend visiting the Center and hiring Grant as your translator/interpreter. The Center requested that I bring my own translator as the Center’s instructors deliver their lessons only in Japanese. I reached out to Grant and he was very responsive with a proposal, which I accepted after exchanging emails with him and other interpreters listed on gowithguide.com. He met us promptly at our hotel this morning and we took the subway to the Center together. He is a courteous and professional intermediary - it was great to understand what was going on, and to be able to participate in Q+A with the Center’s instructors. Grant made sure we were well cared for every step of the way. Google Translate doesn’t hold a candle to working with Grant who is a professionally trained Japanese translator/interpreter, genial companion, guide, and advocate for his clients.Thanks, Grant!
