Haruka U. is a wonderful guide. She took the four of us around Tokyo to all the wonderful tourist attractions. The best was the fish market with all the sushi and street food we could buy and try. Haruka walked with us all day and was very attentive, whatever or wherever we wanted to go. It was a wonderful day and we enjoyed it very much. I would highly recommend this guide. Thank you again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great review. I love having foodie guests on my tours, and it was so much fun exploring the fish market and other historical sights with all of you!
Great tour of Tokyo. Haruka was very helpful planning the day and guiding us through the mega city. It was a perfect mixture of food, sightseeing, history, and culture. Absolutely recommended!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a nice review and for spending your first full day in Tokyo with me. I am glad I was able to help you have a good start to your trip!
Haruka is a delightful tour guide. The weather was unusually hot & she adapted her plans for the day effortlessly. Our 1st time to Japan, & speaking no Japanese Haruka seamlessly guided us throughout the city by trains & walking. We saw more of Tokyo with her in 6 hours than we had managed in 2 days on our own. Her English was perfect & it's clear that she has mastered the skills of hospitality. I would highly recommend anyone to hire Haruka as their guide to Tokyo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the generous rating! It was very nice meeting you all and showing you both the historical and the modern sides of Tokyo in one day. Enjoy the rest of your trip and hope to see you again if you get a chance to come back!

We really enjoyed spending the day with Haruka. She was very informative and had great English. She was very responsive to my emails when we were planning the tour so we were able to see everything that we wanted in the 8 hours. We loved the restaurant that she chose for lunch. It was unlike anything we saw on the rest of the trip. We enjoyed Haruka so much that we met her the next night for a food tour. We would recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the generous rating! It was such a pleasure to meet all of you and introduce you to many different areas of Tokyo as well as various aspects of the Japanese culture. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and are doing well back home. Arigato Gozaimashita ：)

Haruka was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable about the local heritage. She explained things to us that pertained to the shrines we visited and that pertained to local culture. Her English is excellent! The restaurant that she took us to was very authentic and delicious. We hired her on our first day in Japan and it was the best thing we did. We are so happy that we picked her as our guide! Mahalo Haruka
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a nice comment. It was a pleasure showing your family around Tokyo, and I am very glad you got to experience a lot within a short amount of time. Mahalo:)

As a fabulous guide, Haruka made Tokyo seem very approachable with a thoughtful, exciting day. My wife was slowed by an injury and Haruka made small adjustments to assist her--taking elevators and escalators when available and (most likely) walking a little slower than usual. The result was perfect. Haruka also tailored our visit perfectly for us. Finding pufferfish, strange vending machines, specialty shopping, and make-your-own okonomiyaki! She also made great suggestions for the rest of our stay.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for a very nice and detailed review. I always try to listen to my guests and customize the tour to suit their needs and interests, and I am glad it worked well for you. Thank you for keeping up with the walk that Tokyo requires and being adventurous to see and try as much as possible. It was such a pleasure meeting you.

Haruka was great! We saw a lot of Tokyo. We were overwhelmed with so much goings on in Tokyo but Haruka made it fun. She was well organized and at the same time flexible enough to accomodate everyone's wants and wishes. We stopped to get all out bucklist items done. Exhausted but wonderful day with Haruka!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for actually writing about our two days respectively. It was such a pleasure spending time with all of you and I really appreciate all your walk and cooperation!

Haruka was an amazing tour guide. I'm so thankful to have been able to see Tokyo for the first time with her. Haurka was kind enough to show me things only a local would know. She is very flexible and willing to work around your schedule (which I appreciated). She was even willing to pick me up and drop me off at my air bnb to make sure I got there safe. I would highly recommend booking with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a nice comment. It was a pleasure meeting you and showing you around while sharing my culture. Hope to see you again when you get a chance to come back!
Haruka exceeded what we were expecting, having hired local guides for years around the world. She was engaging, clear, did not sound like she had memorized a script. Her English is perfect with a N. A. accent. She filled the day with interesting facts, context and historical depth. She was considerate of the two "slower" people in our group. And she followed up that night with a very helpful note on a health issue one of us had with a written statement in Japanese that we could use in restaurants.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a nice review! It was great to meet you all, and I am so glad I was able to help in many ways at the beginning of your trip. Enjoy the rest of your time in Japan and hope to see you again some day!

Mrs Haruka is a sweet lady knows lot about Tokyo and excellent tour guide for family or group. She speaks good English and very professional. She came to our hotel on time and showed us all important places to visit in Tokyo. She needs to make a list of good different restaurants in the regions and take the tourists when asked their desire of kind of food they want to eat. She took us to famous mall shopping and spent more time with us. I Strongly recommend her as young tour guide. Regards, Chris and
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the generous rating and kind advice. It was so nice to meet and spend time with you and your daughters, and I hope to see you all again next time you come back.
