Tomoko was WONDERFUL! She is very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. Her itinerary was well planned and organized, and Tomoko was able to both guide us as well as be flexible / respond to our interests and needs. We had a full day tour of Kyoto our second day in Japan, and it was the perfect introduction to this beautiful country and it's traditions. We traveled by bus which gave us the confidence to continue to navigate public transportation on our own. Even our teenagers loved the full day tour!
