Travelling is a great thing to do. Learning about other cultures and customs expands our perspectives in life. I would like to share with you Japanese culture and history.
First, please allow me to introduce myself. I’m a full-time national licensed tour guide. I studied Japanese Art History when I was a student at a university, Tokyo. I experienced working at multinational companies for more than 20 years and worked as a travel coordinator for years.
I have been conducting private tours around Tokyo for more than 200 times and received excellent reviews from my guests. I usually offer a tailor-made tour upon the request of my customers. One thing that I love to do is letting my guests experience the old things and modern things in Tokyo. I have been providing tours to major sightseeing spots, including Asakusa, Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, Ginza, Shibuya, etc. As one of my hobbies is appreciation of Art works, I specialize art tours visiting traditional and contemporary art galleries.
Everyone loves Tokyo. The people are polite, the food is incredible, the cultural heritage sites are stunning, and the shopping is one of the best in the world. So I'm sure that your stay here will be memorable and fun.
Let’s enjoy Tokyo together.
I can arrange your tour in accordance with your preference.
Mari seemed knowledgeable and while very nice and accommodating, she is somewhat quiet or perhaps a bit shy. Her English was not always easy to understand but it helped when she spoke louder. I suggest you ask questions and I think you will get more helpful information from her. She picked us up at our hotel and was very punctual. At our request she took us through Yanaka and we enjoyed a tea ceremony, albeit somewhat abbreviated. She also made sure that we got back to our hotel.
Dear Gary, Thank you for sending your kind review. I also enjoyed the tour of Yanaka. Two of you have been nice to me. I understand what you thought about my guiding. Thank you for your advice regarding what area I have to improve. I will make efforts to meet with my customers’ request. I hope you are enjoying your group tour throughout Japan. Please have a nice time.
Everything about being with Mari for the day was great. She showed me all the things I had wanted to see and even added a trip to the Pokemon store since we were ahead of schedule when we got to Shibuya. My daughter loves the cards I was able to pick up for her. The card Mari gave me at the beginning of the tour will always be a special reminder of my day and helps me remember to mention all the things I saw that day when telling people about my trip. I was able to navigate the subways when we were done, and I just got way more out of my trip than I would have if I had not had a guide. If you are only going to be in Tokyo for a couple of days like I was, you absolutely should hire a guide and Mari is great choice. -- Jay
Dear James, Thank you very much for your splendid comment with 5-star evaluation. I was surprised how smart you are especially in IT area. You can do two things at a time. I am glad to know that your daughter loved the Pokemon card. Thanks and best regards, Mari
My family has two kids ages 5 and 2 that make us a very challenging match for a guide. Mari customized a wonderful 3-day Tokyo tour itinerary centered around my kids and we all had a great time. Mari was punctual, flexible and incredibly patient which was the only way it was going to work. Thank you Mari for your time and patience!
Thank you very much for your excellent review. I also had a great time with your children. Your son is active, and I was surprised he tried 9 jobs in KidZania. Your daughter is quiet and smart, and both are adorable. I also enjoyed talking with your wife. Please come to Japan again in the near future.
Mari was very well prepared with the plan we discussed before hand for a Narita city tour during our long layover. She planned the activities exactly as discussed and was very patient with my kids through out the tour. I highly recommend her for any guide services in Narita or Tokyo !
Dear Sapna, Thank you very much for your splendid comment with 5-star evaluation. I'm very glad that you and your kids enjoyed wearing Kimono. It was a coaching hot day, but your kids were feeling better at the end lol. I'm looking forward to making Tokyo tour with you soon. Thanks and best regards, Mari
