We had a very short time in Tokyo and Yoko took us to the places she could during the time we had. She did a good job making sure we did not miss our flight and explaining the areas we could see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roddy, Thank you very much for posting a wonderful review! I had a lovely time with you and your wife, during your short stay in Tokyo. Talking with you was interesting to me. Tokyo has a lot of attractive places. I hope you will come to Tokyo again and see you then. Thank you and please take care. Yoko

Yoko was really great and incredibly accommodating. We were a tired group who hadn't yet acclimated to the time, and Yoko revised the tour along the way to make sure it fit out needs (including a coffee run!). She is very knowledgeable of the region and very nice and warm. We recommend her for sure.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matthew, Thank you very much for such a lovely review! I also had a lovely time with all of you. I'm grateful for your kindness. The illuminated Sensoji temple was very beautiful and impressive even for me. I hope all of you are fine and enjoy your journeys in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo someday in the near future and hope to see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey! Yoko

Absolutely loved our tour with Yoko. Her English is great and she is so easy to understand. We had a wonderful experience at the beautiful Meiji jingu shrine and Yoko explained everything! We also had fun watching the famous Shibuya crossing from an observation area and then did the crossing. We had a perfect day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joni, Thank you very much for posting such a beautiful review! I'm so delighted to hear that you enjoyed our tour in Tokyo.

This was our third and final day with Yoko. Yoko met us at our ship and escorted us to the shrine in Asakusa and the related market. The shrine was impressive and representive of Japan. We also experienced a great lunch. Over the three day period we learned a lot about Japan and Yoko. Yoko is a wonderful and sweet person who really wants to satisfy our requests. She escorted us through local transportation and gave us a sense of what it means to live and work in Tokyo. I highly recommend Yok

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger, Thank you very much for such a warm, beautiful review! I had a lovely time with all of you. I was delighted to help you explore Asakusa, Sensoji temple and Nakamise street. Thanks to all of your cooperation, we could do our tours as planned.

This was day two of our visit to Tokyo. Day one was spent visiting Kamakura with Yoko. Yoko met us at our hotel and escorted us by subway to Tsukiji to enjoy the fish market. We had fresh tuna at the market which was outstanding. We then visited Akihabara to see the electronics market. We had been specific in our requests and we wanted to visit different aspects of Tokyo. We arrived back at our hotel at 1 PM. This was the day we boarded our Viking cruise. I would highly recommend Yoko.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger, Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a lovely review! After enjoying traditional beautiful places in Kamakura, we enjoyed modern sites of Tokyo on the day. I hope you enjoyed some pieces of tuna, which you're interested in. I was happy to help your wife find a lovely souvenir to your granddaughter at Akihabara. I hope she loves it! That was also a memorable day for me. Thank you so much again for having me as your guide. Yoko

Yoko was a great tour guide. She was very accommodating even before the trip started. We went through a few emails regarding our itinerary and she made several suggestions along the way. I appreciated her thoughtfulness throughout the process. Although we deviated from our original plans, Yoko was flexible with us and took us around where we wanted. We were able to see parts of Tokyo that we would not have seen on our own. She was very patient with our party. She was knowledgable and was great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Beryl, Thank you very much for your fabulous review! I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. The time with you and your family was memorable. Thank you so much for having me as your guide. I was glad to see your daughter looked very happy when we were at the shop in Akihabara.

Yoko was an excellent guide for me. I can not walk much so she hired a taxi and driver, who turned out to be also excellent. We saw many parts of the city including some of the venues being built for the Olympics and official buildings. Besides picking me up at the dock, she also went with me on the bus to Narita Airport, which was a tremendous help to me, I could not have managed it by myself.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ruth, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I had a lovely time with you. I'm sorry I couldn't take you to the temple as planned, now I'm sure you're getting better. The tour with you was relatively unusual for me, I'm grateful that you gave me such a good opportunity. Thank you again for having me as your guide. I hope you're fine now and I hope I could see you some day in the near future. Please take care. Yoko

Yoko was such a delight. She met us at our hotel for our half day tour. She was so knowledgeable and nothing was a problem.

We asked our guide Yoko to take us to the Ueno area. She met us at our hotel and we all took the train and subway to visit Sensoji Temple and the Ueno Park area. She was very pleasant and shared her knowledge of the customs and history of the temple. I would definitely book another tour with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Louise, Thank you so much for posting such a great review. I'm sorry the time when we spent in Ueno was much less than you had expected. I didn't expect I could receive such a great review from you, I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. All of your family are very nice, so I had a fun time with all of you.

Thanks Yoko for a fantastic job, only hours after we arrived on a wet and cold morning, our very 1st time in Japan. Yoko was knowledgeable about the areas we visited and gave us a glimpse into Japanese culture and norms. She went above and beyond and made sure that we got all the travel information we need for the rest of our Japan trip. The tour was way longer than 4 hours and still a follow-up email. Yoko was warm and engaging and made us feel at home. Great service we very highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kolotita, Thank you so much for such a lovely review! The day was unusually cold with rain, I do hope all of you didn't catch cold. I had a lovely time with you and your daughters. I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope you have had a lovely journey in Japan.

Yoko was an excellent guide. She was prompt on the meeting appointment at the hotel lobby. Quickly we established places that I wanted to visit which were so different from the sample routine tour. She recommended the best train/ subway routes that will meet up destinations on my list and within tour time. She was very knowledgeable about local issues and I learned a lot from it.
