A fantastic, information-filled day of fun with Yuo

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.

A warm bath

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

Yuko O.

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 is Highly Recommended

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!

Yuko O.

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

Tokyo highlights

Yuku was such an amazing guide! We traveled with our 1yr old daughter, and Yuko was so nice and thoughtful of her. She has a bright personality and lots of energy. We ended up seeing a few places that were scheduled on our tour before our tour date, so the itinerary she had planned was adapted on the spot. She was flexible and so well prepared as she adapted the schedule to our needs and interest. She knew the best places for diaper changes and even child friendly restaurant. She was one of the most well prepared guides we used, and responded and confirmed everything promptly. You can tell she is a hard worker and will do her best to make your tour enjoyable. We really enjoyed our time with her!

Yuko O.

Dear Derek, Thank you very much for attending my tour, and I really appreciate your good review. You are wonderful famiy, and I was lucky spending my time with you! It was one of the most memorable tour I've ever had. , which was my first tour in Triplelights. You look like a 20s and 30s couple with young energy, thoughtful of each other, kind, with lovely wife and cute "Princess"! If you have another chance to visit Japan, it would be appreciated if you could consider including Yokohama in the itinerary! I hope to see you again in your future ! Good luck for your family, job, and all the life ! Yuko Ohmori

Yokohama your way (from 4 hours)

Yokohama
4 hours

Yokohama is a beautiful harbor city with mix of historical and modern buildings, and Chinatown with its genuine Chinese flavors .Excellent views and plenty of photo opps. It's just only 30 minutes away from Tokyo by train. For a 4-hour tour, please select two or three destinations from the Hightlights section. (all of which are my personal favorites.) Sankeien Garden(#11) is highly recommended if you're not going to either Kamakura or Kyoto (extra two hours). See you in Yokohama!
