My wife and I and our friends arrived in Tokyo the previous day. We elected to utilize Yoko's services for three days. The first day was spent visiting Kamakura. Yoko met us at our hotel at 9 AM and escorted us by train to Kamakura. We had a wonderful day experiencing the shrines and gardens of Kamakura and visiting the Great Buddha of Kamakura. We also experienced a great lunch. Yoko is very sweet and her English is very good. She was attentive to our needs as active senior citizens.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger, Thank you very much for posting such a wonderful review! I had a lovely day with all of you in Kamakura. The day was a beautiful day and I remembered all of you were very popular among Japanese school students who were in their school excursion, right? The happy moment was also memorable for me. Thanks to all of your cooperation we could visit all the places as planned. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. Thank you so much for having me as your guide. Please take care. Yoko

Yoko is a wonderful guide and my wife and I were extremely happy to have her for a day-long trip to Kamakura. Her disposition is excellent, she has a great knowledge of the area, and she helped modify the itinerary a bit to make sure we got back a bit in time to see a Kabuki play. We felt totally comfortable with her as the leader for the day -- we knew we were in good hands.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daniel, Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Kamakura. I had a lovely time with both of you. Honestly I was wondering if we could visit all the places during our tour, but we made it successfully! Thank you so much for your cooperation. I'm sure you enjoyed the Kabuki play and I hope your journey in Japan was enjoyable. I hope you come to Japan again and hope to see you then. Thank you again for having me as your guide. Yoko

I wish we could give Yoko-San 10 stars! She's so knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful and enjoyable to spend a day with. She took such good care of us throughout our trip from Tokyo to Kamakura. She was flexible and able to modify things to make the trip easier for us. That way, we truly enjoyed every moment. She also researched (in advance) a restaurant that met my dietary needs and preferences. The food was delicious. We highly recommended her and wish we could go on more trips with her. She's delightful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janet-san, Thank you so much for such a fabulous review! I had a lovely time with you and your husband. It was a beautiful day with a lot of tourists and locals in Kamakura so honestly I was afraid if lining up in some places made you tired. Thank you for your patience. Talking with both of you was interesting and fun. Thanks to his sense of humor we laughed a lot. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I hope you are having lovely time in Japan and I hope I can see you again in the near future. Yoko

Yoko is wonderfully conscientious and takes very good care of her clients. She arranged our tour to Kamakura to include the Enoshima Railway which I particularly wanted to travel on. And she found the most wonderful restaurant near to one of the temples we visited, which was a highlight. A pleasure to be with!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frederick, Thank you so much for such a lovely review. I had a lovely time with you in Kamakura. Thanks to you, I had a good opportunity to do a little different Kamakura tour which was a wonderful experience for me. I'm grateful for your kindness. There is a lot of attractive destinations in Japan. I hope you come to Japan in the near future and hope to see you again. Please take care. Yoko

Thanks to Yoko, our day trip to Kamakura was the highlight of our Japan trip. Yoko is an absolute delight. She is knowledgeable, caring, funny and charming, and was very concerned that she met all of our needs and desires. She taught us so much about the history and culture of her beautiful country. She also introduced us to delicious local delicacies to ensure we experienced all Japan has to offer. Yoko did everything possible to ensure our day in Kamakura was special. She has became a true friend.

We (family of 3 adults) are very happy to have Yoko as our guide for a day trip to Kamakura. She is very cheerful, polite and helpful. We have had an enjoyable day with her as she is well verse with explanations of the places we visited. Further more we had a special lunch which only locals would know. The freshest 'sashimi' that I have ever tasted. Thank you very much for your help which we really appreciate it.

Yoko is lovely. She will change itinerary to fit with what you would like to do and see. We saw everything we wanted, and she also took us to a delightful cafe. She could answer most questions, and we are looking forward to our next tour with her.
