I'm Sayuri, born in Niigata where is beautifully snowy place and living in Kanagawa, full of sightseeing spots now.
I've been worked at a travel agent for more than 10 years and it's my pleasure to help tourists to make their travel plan!All the things you see and experiences during your trip will surely broaden your world and it would be very honored if I could help you to find such priceless experiences during your holiday:)
Basically,I'm planning a tour based on tourist's request and every single your request about tour such as 'I'd love to see Sake brewery in country side area!' or 'Is it possible to visit hedgehog cafe?' can be welcomed!
Of course,I can guide you the famous sightseeing spots such as Hakone and Kamakura.
But if you prefer to see the nice place where not so commercialized for tourists,I'll guide around you too!
I'm looking forward to see you here in Japan:)
Very informative and excellent experience. I would recommend Sayuri for a tour guide.
Dear Mr.Bobby, Thank you for your review. It was my plearure to be your guide! Have a nice flight to the United states and I hope that your memories in Japan would be priceless one for you. Best regards, Sayuri
We really enjoyed and appreciated having Sayuri as a guide on our trip to Tokyo. Originally what made her our first choice is her history with Niigata that we wanted to visit. Due to our traveling situation we did not have time to make the Niigata trip and had to schedule a custom tour for the Tokyo areas that interested us just a a day or two in advance. Sayuri took our list and worked on the best way to see most of the places based on the time we set aside an provided us multiple updates. When she provided the final tour itinerary she also provided an estimate expected fees and the travel fee. She arrived at our meeting place slightly early and was patient with us while we stored our bags. Sayuri spoke English well with a Japanese accent which made communication easy. We got to see a lot of things, learn the transit system, and learn more about Tokyo and Japanese culture. After the tour we need to pickup our bags and travel by train to a ryokan in Hakone. Sayuri provided us great instructions on how to get there with alternate routes due to the train delays she looked into. She also contacted the ryokan to make sure that they would have a shuttle for us even though we were arriving late. Per my request she also provided reasonable suggestions for hotels for last moment reservations [Tip: considered twin room pushing beds together instead of double room ;-) ]
Dear Mr.Kevin, Thank you so much for your warm message! I'm so happy to hear that you could enjoy your stay in Japan even though a chilly weather of our tour day. It was my pleasure to assist your stay. I hope that you'll come to Japan again so that I can show you beautiful rice fields in rural area next time! Best regards, Sayuri
Sayuri put together an excellent tour that gave us a taster for a wide range of sites in a reasonably concise time! She was very accommodative of our kids interests and it was great to have a guide on hand to help us navigate the subway system and to answer all the little questions that we had.
Hi, Ms.Sybil! I'm glad to hear that you were satisfied with the tour even though it's a short time. I'm also very happy to see your kids enjoy Gudetama character so much!! Now, you've already known how to use subway system and you can be like Japanese locals after your long stay in Japan:) I hope that you and your family have a lot of fun experiences in Japan! Sayuri
First and foremost, she has this down to a science. She was able to compile a spectacular day, within a very short time period that I had there. She made my time there so enjoyable, and navigated the city with ease. With all the construction going on with the 2020 Olympics, she maneuvered us around the city without a minute lost. Tokyo's train system is efficient, however can be very confusing. I don't think I could've seen a fraction of the things I saw without her there to guide me. She is also a very warm, intelligent, and friendly person. By the time I was leaving, I felt we had been friends for ages.
Hi, Mr.Scott! Thank you for your warm message! I'm so happy to know you were satisfied with the tour even though it's very short time. The places we visited during the tour (Asakusa, Harajuku and Shibuya) were must-to-see places to know both historical aspects and metropolitan aspects of Tokyo effectively. I hope that your experiences during the tour will be your priceless memories of Japan! Thank you again and hope to see you again:)
