Yukiko did an amazing job. This was a great experience.
Thank you for valuable review! Since I am the only professional guide who do Live Virtual Tour in Tokyo, I am pleased to hear what you thought about the tour. It's nice to have an option that I can send the real Japan via zoom wherever you live. See you in person next time!
Yukiko was a wonderful and sweet guide. She communicated ahead of our tour so that we could fine tune what we wanted to see. Yukiko was energetic and able to keep up with us, and vice versa. She spoke English well. We enjoyed learning about the sights and neighborhoods on our walk. At the end of our tour, Yukiko gave us a personalized handmade journal of our itinerary, which included tips on public transportation, etc. She also gave us a gift box of cookies/crackers. We will definitely call upon Yukiko to take us around again.
Your review gave me an encouragement and helped to keep my motivation high for guests. Thank you so much. I would like to keep up energetic work for all of my guests. There are many more great sites in Tokyo. Look forward to meeting you again in the future!
We enjoyed a 5 hour tour with Yukiko, which she customised for us according to our family’s interests. She brought us to Ningyocho, a cultural area to visit some shops and food outlets, and we also spent some time working on advanced origami skills (making a dragonfly, then a parasol). Finally we wrapped up by attending a traditional carpenter, and carved our own chopsticks! Yukiko was friendly, knowledgeable and sensitive to our children’s needs/interests. She spoke English fluently. We would highly recommend her services to all.
It was great to hear what you felt and thoughts about the tour! It encouraged me a lot. Trying to find out guest's interests and the process of making your original itinerary are favorite parts of my tour. Let's explore more in Tokyo and make more Origami next time. Domo arigato!!
Yukiko is an excellent guide for our trip to Ghibli Studio (Tokyo). We couldn't purchase tickets as international visitors and Yukiko assisted us with it. She met us at our hotel on time, and even made us a very useful handbook with tips about getting around Tokyo on the public transport. She is also knowledgeable about the background of Ghibli films and history. On the way to the studio, she took us to a Ghibli themed cream puff shop that we didn't know about. Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip!
I was pleased to share enjoyable time with your family! Ghibli is one of my favorite movies. Luckily, we could get different flavored cream puffs and hope you enjoyed the taste as well as cute-looking. Thank you once again, have a wonderful trip in Japan!!
