This is our 10th visit to Japan and our 1st time to see Yokohama. We are fortunate to have discovered Yuko-san as tour guide for our family trip to Yokohama. Yuko-san made our family trip a truly memorable experience. We loved how knowledgeable and well organized she is. She sent us email messages with useful information weeks prior to the trip. She dropped by our hotel one day before our scheduled tour and left with the hotel concierge a handwritten welcome note with a detailed itinerary. On the day of our tour, Yuko-san and a colleague, Tatsuo-san arrived 30 mins early to welcome the group. The entire tour lasted for almost 8 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. What endeared Yuko-san and Tatsuo-san to the group was their patience and attentiveness to the needs of the group. They are the most caring tour guides we have encountered in all of our trips to Japan. We highly recommend Yuko-san and Tatsuo-San as tour guides for Yokohama.
Dear Arlene, Thank you so much for giving me such an excellent rating and a lovely thoughtful review! I'd like to say thank you for being given this chance to show you around in Yokohama. Nothing would make us happier than to see you love Yokohama. Tatsuo and I also enjoyed touring and had a wonderful time with you, wondeful family ! Thanks for coming to Yokohama and choosing me as your guide! I'm looking forward to your 2nd coming to Yokohama ! Sincerely, Yuko
Yuko is an exceptional guide. Her planning and care are meticulous. She came to our hotel a day early to drop off information and instructions for meeting her in our hotel lobby the next day. The sights seen and the tastes enjoyed with Yuko will become long-time memories. They included: the skilled preparation of a giant tuna for sushi; the many delicious seafood stalls with giant oysters, crabs and prawns; the most delicious chilled green tea and matcha green tea ice cream, made by a family who have been in business for more than 100 years, that is without doubt the Royal Royce of ice creams. We also enjoyed exquisitely designed Shogun gardens, a boat ride to view Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge and then Tokyo’s largest Buddhist temple and pagoda built in 600AD. Yuko also kindly took me to Tokyo Station to set up my JR rail pass. What a great day! I highly recommend Yuko as a guide. Thank you, Yuko! I’ll be back with my husband to see you next year.

Dear Sarah, I appreciate your wonderful message. I am pleased you enjoyed the tour. The day I spent with you was really wonderful, Sarah. You are very beautiful, smart, and family-tought lady ; a good wife, a kind daguther, and a nice mother! You are the greatest lady in the world! I will never forget the day with you. There are many other places in Tokyo, so it would be appreciated if you could come back to Tokyo. I am looking forward to seeing you again with your family ! Yuko Ohmori
Visiting Japan, and Tokyo specifically, for the first time, we were looking for a private guide. Via Triple Lights we booked Yuko Ohmori, and she appeared the best guide we could wish for. The preparation, the motivation, the pleasure and the professionality she took care of us was impressive and very warm! She guided us for 21/2 days and from begin to end was magnificent. Breaking up when we had to leave felt like loosing a friend; although it at the same time felt as we gained a friend for life! Warm regards, Flip van Ellinkhuizen
Dear Flip, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am really lucky to have a chance to spend time with nice guests like you, the greatest couple! April 22nd to 24th were the special days for me, because it was the first time to have been a tour guide for more than one day in my life! I am surprised 2and a half days have passed like an arrow with you! Talking with you about your country and ours, view of life, I felt myself not like a tour guide but we are just friends, which was another happy feeling for me ! Going around the sightseeing spots, I even found another beatuty and value in Japanese culture by being with you ! I was also impressed by your courteous behavior to everybody sourrounding us ! Everybody, from little children to seniors in Japan look welcoming you from their hearts! My uncle has visited Netherlands, and he says that's because of it a wonderful country also I should visit! Of course,I'd live to. I wish good luck for you and your wife! Please be my good friends forever! Best regards, Yuko Ohmori
Yuko was prompt in meeting us at our hotel. She is friendly, caring and very organized. It was obvious that she had spent a lot of time planning our tour according to our wishes. We saw all of the sights that I had requested for our group of 4 adults. When I return to Yokohama or Tokyo, I will certainly contact Yuko again to arrange another tour for me!
Dear Rosemary, Thank you very much for your nice comments! I'm happy you enjoyed the tour, and I will never forget smiles of your members on the face, which were really nice. All, you, your husband, and your friend couple, are really kind, friendly, and you are the great Emperess of the wonderful group! April 12nd was the special day for me, because that was the first time to have a tour of Yokohama, my lovely city, in Triple Lights. I appreiate you gave me a chance to meet all of you, who love Yokohama. After the tour, my husband I visited plant shops to buy a herb "Rosemary" for our garden, which has really nice aroma refreshing us. It is a memorial item, that would bring us happiness! I'm looking forward to your another visit to Yokohama or Tokyo, and see you again. Good luck for you, all your members, and the families! Best regards, Yuko Ohmori
