Our Shibamata and Anime custom tour was marvelous. Sachimi made our tour delightful as we did not know our way around Tokyo. She was able to take us exactly to the places we requested, and went the extra mile in explaining every aspect of the trip in great detail. As a tour guide she is one of the best we have ever experienced and the cost of the 7 hour tour was well worth it. Sachimi was so detail-oriented and planned out everything for us so we did not have any stress. She had great ideas as to where to take us, such as the Jujutsu Kaisen Cafe in Harajuku. It was a wonderful experience and Sachimi was kind enough to modify the trip for us when necessary, like changing the drop-off point at the last minute. She was kind enough to escort us to the clinic where we needed to get our PCR test to return to L.A., and we are so grateful for her kindness. I encourage anyone to try her tours as they will not be disappointed. Thank you Sachimi!
Hi, William-san, Sachiko-san, and Kana-chan. Thank you very much for your kind review. I also had a very good time with you, enjoying the tour myself, especially after a long interval of hosting the guests from overseas. I am also very happy to see Sachiko-san enjoyed Shibamata so much, and Kana-chan enjoyed Ikebukuro and Harajuku shopping. I hope to meet all of you again after the COVID restrictions are lifted. By that time, I wish you all happiness and health. Thanks again and best regards, Sachimi
We went on an 8hr tour with 5 kids of all ages and everyone had a great time because Sachimi went overboard to make sure that the everyone's whim was catered for. What could have been a stressful experience turned out to be a wonderful, fun & culturally and historically educational tour. Make Sachimi your guide and you will have no worries.
Hi Adrian-san & family. Thank you very much for very warm review. It was lovely day to spend day with you at my favorite town, Kawagoe. I am so glad that everyone enjoyed the day, especially eating and shopping :) Please enjoy whole your stay in Japan for a month & lovely family get together. I wish to see you again in the future. best regards, sachimi
She was great for showing us places not rushed. I could take a time to photograph places as I wanted( I’m an amateur photographer). My family (3) enjoyed her guided tour.
Hi, Nancy-san Thank you very much for your kind review. It was really nice meeting you all and I am happy you enjoyed the tour with me. Also I feel great that you could take photo as much as you like and hope you have many great photos of the day. Please enjoy all your stay in Tokyo and Kyoto! Also please come back to Japan again! Thank you and have a nice trip. best regards sachimi
Sachimi was so lovely and taught us a great deal about Japanese culture. She showed us around Kyoto for the day and chose a wonderful restaurant for lunch. We would absolutely recommend her. We would definitely use her again as our guide.
