Izumi was a wonderful guide to Tokyo. This two half day tours were perfect for a birds' eye view of the city. I was traveling with elder parents and Izumi was able to cater to all our requests. In two days, we were able to see Tsukiji market, Asakusa, Rippongi, Shibuya and Harajuku. I highly recommend her to anyone who'd like to see an overview of Tokyo while having free time to shop and explore on your own in the afternoon. Thanks again for showing us around Tokyo, Izumi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Tokyo for 2 days. Thank you very much for having me with you and I really hope that we could meet again in the near future!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback. I really hope that you enjoyed the whole Japan!

Izumi is an excellent tour guide. My 16 year old daughter and I received a two day tour of the Tokyo area. Izumi knows both the popular and "behind the scenes" sites in Tokyo. She was very flexible and willing to design a tour that met our unique plans. On day two of the tour, I could not join the tour due to business. I had complete satisfaction and "peace of mind" that my 16 year old was safe with Izumi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your prompt feedback. I am glad to hear that you are back home safe and sound. I enjoyed spending time with your daughter, and hope that she likes Tokyo. Again I really appreciate your having me with you in Tokyo!

Having a guide in the morning and time on your own in afternoon is a great way to tour. Izumi explains Tokyo regions well and customized our tour to our interests. She took us to good free view spots at fish market and at government center. Using subways can be a lot of walking and get tiring, so let her know if you want a rest stop or snack during the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to hear that you are back home safe and sound. Thank you so much for having me with you in Tokyo. I really hope that you enjoyed the cruise to north Japan; I also appreciate your suggestion on the tour. I keep in mind on it for the next tour.

Our family of 6 enjoyed our 2-day (mornings) tour with Izumi. Izumi was very prompt and met us at our apartment both mornings. She had interesting sites planned for us to see and also worked in some places that we requested. She even helped us plan things to do on our own, including a baseball game, which we thoroughly enjoyed! She related well to our whole family including our children who are in their 20's. We loved our visit to Tokyo and Izumi helped to make it even more enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad to hear that you are now back safe and sound. Thank you so much for having me with you during your stay in Tokyo. And I am so happy that you enjoyed the baseball game, too!! I really appreciate your feedback and warm-hearted comment!

Our guide was Izumi. She was great! She was personable and knowledgable about the history of the places we went to see and tailored our trip to our requests. She was able to answer every question we asked and took us to great places we never would have visited. She also gave great advice about how to spend our time our after we left her for the day. She was also informative of all things Japanese, which was interesting to us. Her English was perfect and I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for having me with you and your prompt feedback on the tour. I also really appreciate your compliment. Have a safe flight back home, and hope to see you again in Tokyo in the near future!

We spent two days with Izumi in Tokyo and she was great! She is knowledgeable, fun and very energetic!! She planned our days together and was quite flexible with our changing requests. Tokyo is very large and I felt we saw a lot of the "important" tourist sites as well as some off-the-beaten-path places. I highly recommend Izumi!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So relieved to hear that you are back home safe and sound. I really hope that you enjoyed your stay in Tokyo. Thank you so much for having me with you, and hopefully come back here again in a different season!

Our guide Izumi was very friendly, knowledgeable and well organised. She adjusted the tour to meet our specific requests. We enjoyed her company and the sights and experiences very much. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for having me with you during your stay in Tokyo. So glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I am really sure that your family will love your souvenir from Kappabashi!
Izumi was the perfect guide for the 2 half days tour in Tokyo. She was punctual, catered to our specific needs, changed the tour upon request... we enjoyed her guiding very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback. So glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour! Hope to have enjoyed other places in Japan！

We lived in Tokyo 30 years ago, so my husband and I were familiar with many of the popular tourist sites, but that was a long time ago, and since we were traveling with friends who had never been to Japan, we thought it was worth while to take a guided tour. We're so glad we did, and a private tour is definitely the way to go! Izumi was wonderful, very accommodating, knowledgeable, and easy to understand - her English is excellent having lived in the US for 5 years. We highly recommend her to you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to hear that you are now back home safe and sound. Thank you so much for hiring me on two days.I really hope that your daughter could also enjoy Tokyo in cherry blossom season. Best wishes,

We cannot recommend Izumi highly enough. She is professional, sophisticated, easy-going and a very good listener. There was no feeling of having a 'canned' tour--instead, Izumi listened to what we were interested in and provided more than we could have asked for. If you want a guide in Tokyo you won't be disappointed in Izumi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sure that you enjoy Kyoto and Nara now. Thank you so much for your prompt feedback. I am so impressed by your beautiful comments. I really hope to see you again in spring in Tokyo. Have a safe journey!
David GarrityUnited States
Izumi was very accommodating and helpful even before we met, fashioning each half-day tour's itinerary to our interests and requests. She went out of her way to find very unique vegetarian restaurants for lunch on both days. We extended our time with Izumi on both days and only wished we had booked more of her time in advance. We thank her for a wonderful introduction to Tokyo and Japan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sure that you are now back home safe and sound. Thank you so much for having spent time with me in Tokyo. I really hope your coming back to Japan again in spring when a wide variety of flowers welcome you!

We very much enjoyed our tour of Tokyo with Izumi! She new exactly what to see and exactly how to get there. Izumi knew the city very well and her English is excellent. Thank you Izumi for an incredible 2 day tour...our group really enjoyed you, your expertise, and the city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for giving me your feedback. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed Tokyo. I am sure that you also enjoyed staying in Takasaki and an impressive wedding ceremony. Hope to come back to Tokyo in the near future. Sincerely, Izumi

Izumi was an excellent tour guide. She offered great advice during the planning stage of our trip through numerous emails. She not only took us to all the main attractions, she also helped my husband and son get great tickets to a sumo wrestling match. She also contacted the Imperial Palace on our behalf when my husband left his camera at the Imperial Gardens. We liked that the tour was split into 2 half days so that we could also explore on our own in the afternoon. We really enjoyed our time with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your prompt feedback. I am so relieved to hear that you are now back safe and sound. Today I double-checked East Garden but no video cameras were found. I really hope that your memory in Tokyo remains in your mind. Best wishes for your business success and family happiness!

Izumi is superb! She expertly guided our group of 5 adults and 1 infant for 2 mornings. Informed, energetic, imaginative and flexible. We are so grateful and will remember her always! We would jump at the chance to tour again with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. It was such a fantastic 2-morning tour that I spent with you and your family; you have a marvelous family!! Take care, and best wishes to all of you!
