A very informative and easy day in Tokyo with local guide Junko. She had an answer for every question and lots of comments in between. Our tour covered some of the most outstanding sites in the city but also spots in the vicinity of Junko's native place which was even more interesting to me. Rhythm was perfect, discussions were easy and time just passed by ...arigato gozaimasu Junko-san !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Henning! Thank you for your wonderful words. I also enjoyed to walk with you especially in my neighborhood. I assume you had a nice time in Nagano and Kyoto, too. Hope to see you again! Junko

We had a wonderful tour with Junko. She was very well informed about the sites we visited and was very efficient with the time allocated. I would not hesitate to recommend Junko as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Russell. Thank you for your nice words. I would like to take a cruise tour (with dance lesson) sometime in a future! Thanks again.

My wife and I visited Tokyo for the first time in lat October. Being such a huge city and with no experience in Japan we deiced to get a personal guide for our first day. Junko could have been a better experience and really helped us learn our way around Tokyo and show us some places and things we would never have seen on our own. She was extremely friendly and her English was excellent. We had a an amazing day and we loved Tokyo. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Adam! Thank you for your kind feedback. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed Tokyo guided by a local. Please come back and explore much smaller streets with me!

Junko was our fantastic tour guide for a "Foodies" Walking Tour in Tokyo. Junko speaks excellent English and her knowledge of local foods and wines is top class. She also provided us with very interesting information about the history of Tokyo and Japan. We can highly recommend Junko as a tour guide in Tokyo. Arigato Gozaimasu Junko.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Chris, Barb and Nick! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed my favourite part of Tokyo. I hope you could catch a plane back home safely. See you again in Tokyo or Vancouver!

We had an amazing day w junko! We started at the meiji shrine...the garden was tranquil and amazing! Lunch from the basement food court, a visit to a Frank Lloyd Wright school he designed and ended w the delicious shaved ice dessert! We would recommend her to all our friends. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda for your warm comment. It was wonderful to visit Frank Lloyd Wright school with the people who have visited his other works! I am happy that you enjoyed the sweets shop where I have visited from my college days. Please come again and explore much deeper side of Tokyo together!

I asked Junko to show me HER Yanaka, having done the tourist Yanaka previously. We started at Nippori station and explored the area between the station and the start of Yanaka Ginza. We ate at a local sweet shop, stopped in a sake store, explored the side streets and had excellent soba at a local restaurant. It was delightful to be exploring a real neighborhood in some depth. Junko is a writer and a wine and sake expert and an excellent guide. If you want to see the real Yanaka, Junko is the one!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice words.Sarah! It was a wonderful experience for me to show my neighborhood. I hope to have you again for exploring more small alleys.

Junko was very professional in all she did for my special needs brother. He had a great time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Art and Rolando! Thanks a million for your nice words. I enjoyed to walk around my neighborhood with Rolando. I was really happy to see his great respect for local people (especially "TOP" player, staffers of temples, a bakery owner...) . Please come again to explore another small alleys in "Yanesen"!
