A wonderful day.

Michiko was great. We didnt want the usual and she arranged a day to suit us. Teamlab which is worth experiencing followed by teppanyaki lunch. She oriented us with many underground routes to get around followed by drinks at a sake bar. We would have liked to use her again but it wasnt possible.

Michiko M.

Dear Gail and Peter, Thank you for taking your valuable time to send me a great review. My only regret is not being able to guide in Hakone due to my sudden hospitalization. But I am happy to hear that you liked my arrangement of the Hokone tour. Thank you for your concern, the surgery went well and I have fully recovered now. We only had one day together, but it was a lot of fun. If you have a chance to come to Tokyo again, please contact me. Take care, Michiko

Michiko M.

Dear Mariano Thank you very much for giving me an excellent review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stroll through the town despite the hot and humid weather. It was a pleasure to join you on a walk in the garden and share a delicious shaved ice treat. It was a refreshing way to cool down and made me very happy. Thank you again, Michiko

Thank you

Michiko, was very nice and had a lovely day planned, but I got sick that morning and we couldn’t do all she had planned. She is a lovely person and I would ask her to be my guide again. Thank you, Michiko

Dear Gayla, I'm happy to hear from you again. Thank you for giving me an excellent review. How are you doing? I hope you get better and enjoy your cruise around Japan. However a short time, we had a pleasant shopping time. I'm sure your family would be pleased to get Yukata and Obi we chose earnestly. Take care and enjoy your life! Michiko
