Tokyo Tour Reviews

Great guide, great tour.

Shizuko was terrific. I wanted a custom tour of east Tokyo, had a few of the usual places in mind and 2 or 3 slightly off the beaten track, and she put it all together in a way that made a long day very interesting and enjoyable for all of us. Shizuko was punctual, polite and cheerful; always considerate of our interests and needs; and always knowledgeable about what we were seeing and where we were going and of Japanese history, religion, and culture in general. In short, she was wonderful. I highly recommend her as a guide.

Douglas H.

Dear Douglas, Thank you very much for sending me such a heartfelt review. I’m so glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. Because I wish I could have taken a little more time to guide each spot. The tour schedule you requested was ideal one for a glimpse of Japanese tradition, culture and even daily life at off the beaten track of a part of Yanaka. I really enjoyed very much guiding and walking such nice places with you and everyone. I’ve been laughing at everyone’s jokes all the time. Thank you very much again for choosing me as your guide this time. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Japan to the fullest. Kind regards, Shizuko

Great time in Tokyo

We spent 2 1/2 days with Shizuko walking and taking the subway all over Tokyo. We saw a couple of Cherry Blossom flowers since this year we were just a couple of days early. There was not a place in Tokyo we missed. While our first day was rainy, we still got to see many sites. We learned how to use the Suica card to get around and how to navigate the subway system. Even though we took many subways to get to the destination, we will managed to put on over 10,000 steps a day. She even printed out detailed instructions for our driver to get us to an infrequently used cruise terminal in Yokohama. Everything was customized to our needs. Just a fabulous 2 1/2 days even with the bad weather and lots of tourists trying to eat lunch at the same time. I highly recommend Shizuko if you need a guide in Toyko.

Edward T.

Dear Edward, Thank you very much for your great review with warm consideration. I was really happy to received it. I appreciate very much that you always encouraged me during the tour. At the first day of the tour, we’ve been to many must-see spots in Tokyo in a heavy rain and strong wind. And the second day, (it was nice weather) we’ve been to Imperial Palace and the East Garden, we walked a lot and had a late lunch and visited the Ueno Park. And the third day, we visited two famous cherry blossom viewing spots, but cherry blossoms hadn’t bloomed yet, though how much I wanted you see them. Today in Tokyo, it’s getting warmer and cherry trees are finally blooming beautifully. I hope you have already enjoyed the cherry blossoms in full bloom somewhere in Japan. It was really nice meeting you. Please continue to enjoy wonderful cruising. A thousand thanks for choosing me as your guide in Tokyo. Kind regards, Shizuko

Great Guide

Shizuko was an amazing guide she tended to our needs with my mother who needs extra help when walking long distances. She was prepared in every way and very organized we truly appreciated having her as our guide she explain to us the train system and how to get to where we needed to without her. This was a great experience for my family and I having Shizuko as our guide she made Japan feel very welcoming for us .

Amanda T.

Dear Amanda, Thank you very much for your great review. I really happy to receive it. Because the last day in Shibuya, it was raining and all of you had many shopping bags full of souvenirs. (Thank you for sending me a photo you took it at Shibuya, I can see many souvenir bags you have.) They must be really heavy to carry all the time. And I wondered how was your husband’s mother. I hope she was fine. How was the taste of Kobe Beef? etc. The transportation network in Tokyo is complicate, but it’s systematic. So, once you know it, you can try to go around Tokyo by yourselves. I believe that you’ve been to Akihabara, Tsukiji and Asakusa again by yourselves. Amanda, you are so sweet person to take care of your family very well. And William, thank you very much for taking leadership of the family. Thanks to the cooperation of the two of you. I enjoyed guiding and talking with you. It was so nice meeting you and your family. When you have a chance, please come to Japan someday in the future. Thank you again. Kind regards, Shizuko
