Uzumi was so interesting and took beautiful care to show us this local neighborhood. We loved it and Uzumi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your prompt feedback. I really hope that you could enjoy the rest of Tokyo before leaving here! Have a safe trip!!
Izumi is a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. She explained and showed us many of the habits and customs used at shrines and cemeteries. Knowledge that came in helpful later on travelling through Japan as well. She encouraged us to try takoyaki and was eager to answer all our questions. Her English is perfect. It was a very informative afternoon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your warm-hearted comment. I am relieved to hear that you are now back home safe and sound. The tulip magnet you sent me is blooming on my refrigerator door! Thank you again for having me with you in Tokyo!

Have had a good day with Izumi. The walk was very interesting and Izumi is full of facts about various places we visited. Izumi even got us navigating the Tokyo public transport network. Izumi's English is very good so there is nothing to worry about. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your prompt feedback. Please enjoy your tour and I really hope that the weather will be perfect for the next couple of weeks!

Excellent tour with a very pleasant and engaging tour guide. Izumi-san gave us a very enjoyable introduction to one of the old Tokyo neighborhoods that still maintains its pre war character. We got to observe everyday life and sample some great food. Highly recommended tour for those who want to go beyond the familiar tourist circuit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your prompt feedback. So glad to hear that you enjoyed Yanaka district and soba noodles. Have a safe flight back home!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Viny!

My husband and I had a customized tour with Izumi covering the older neighborhoods of Tokyo. Izumi is well informed, punctual, fun to be with and guided us through the subway system of Tokyo. We would highly recommend her as a guide in Tokyo. Jeanne and Dave

Amazing tour, very knowledgable guide! Izumi took us to spots we never would have found on our own! We wound up going back to Yanaka another day to revisit some of the sights she had shown us on the tour because we loved the neighborhood so much! Thank you, Izumi!
We really enjoyed the tour with Izumi. She was very patient and friendly. We took the tour and in the way,there was an event of the university, we really want to see what was going on,and she waited for us, meanwhile we took photos and saw the japanese university life :). Izumi took us to an old neighborhood of Tokyo, so different of the shibuya-harajuku life. This part of the city was old and well preserved. Izumi also gave us good tips of the city,like the baseball game,which we ended up going.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback and flattering comment on the tour in Yanaka. It was such a good opportunity for us to encounter the autumn event of the university and I was pleased to hear that you enjoyed it!

We had a fantastic time. Yanaka is a marvelous area that we would not have explored well by ourselves. Izumi-San made it fantastic! This was our second tour with her since 2010 and she is an OUTSTANDING tour guide. The shrines and temples in Yanaka are easy to tour, varied and numerous. The old shops and markets of the neighborhood were a ton of fun, and the cemetery where the last Shogun is interred was a nice place to see, understand and photograph. The hills make it hard, but Izumi-San makes it joy!
Izumi was a pleasure to spend part of our day with. Very knowledgeable, accommodating and patient. Enjoyed this tour very much due in large part to her. Thanks again Izumi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great feedback. And thank you for your sweet souvenir. All my family really enjoyed it! I hope you had a wonderful vacation in Japan and will come back in the future. Again I really appreciate your having me with you. Izumi

We enjoyed the walking tour but would have appreciated a bit more historical detail. Our guide was very kind and considerate.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your honest impression. I apologize for not having given you historical information enough to satisfy your interest. Also I feel sorry for not having finished the whole itinerary because your son didn't want to continue it. If we had walked the whole route, then you might have been able to future out a little bit more about the historical background of Yanaka. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Izumi

We loved the tours we had with Izumi, and she made our family feel very welcome. She helped us have a truly amazing and unforgettable vacation. Izumi provided a fascinating mix of history and mythology. Her familiarity with the Tokyo subway system allowed us to easily visit several places in a day. Her English is excellent. Thank you, Izumi!
