We loved this tour! Satoko was confident and fun as she guided our family through cool shopping districts, restaurants and points of interest. My teenagers especially had a great time talking about the young culture, fashion and food. I would highly recommend Satoko for any tour!

Despite bad weather Satoko made this a great half day tour, covering the main Tokyo sights as well as one of the large indoor shopping malls. She was a delightful companion and very knowledgable.

We saw much of Tokyo that we otherwise would not have explored. Our guide was very flexible and accommodated what we asked to see, and was able to show us much more than was on our wish list. I would highly recommend using this service and the guides that accompanied us while we were in Tokyo. Thank you Satoko!

Satoko met me at the hotel on time and we walked to the entertainment district of Shinjuku. As we were walking, she answered all of the questions I had in a fun and polite way. She took me to a small bar where only locals drank, it was small, but a lot of fun! We also had dinner together where I got the chance to try a few different local drinks. Satoko is warm, friendly, and funny and I would recommend her for any tour she has available!

Tours by Locals took our Tokyo trip to another level. Satoko was informative and kind. She made us feel welcome in Tokyo and she was able to answer every detailed question we asked. She also went above and beyond assisting a disabled person in our party. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Satoko.

This tour with Satoko is a must for those looking for a truly "local" look at some of the more interesting nighttime areas of Tokyo. She got us to the exact places we were looking for and we had a great time!

Satoko was an excellent guide for our full-day with her. She displayed great knowledge of the areas we visited and really showed us an awesome mix of touristy areas as well as those much much off the beaten path that we would have not been able to see on our own. Thanks!

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Satoko was fun and knowledgeable in the history and culture of Japan. She took us through the market area introducing us to lots of different sights smells and tastes and also took us to a temple and a shrine. We got to talk to some local vendors and taste interesting new foods. She even took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant where her parents had taken her growing up. A truly local experience for my husband 18 year old Son and myself. Thank you

From the beginning when we booked the tour until the end we were treated with great courtesy and everything went wonderfully. Our guide Satoko was wonderful and showed us exactly the Tokyo we wanted to see. The only down side was the rain in the afternoon but we were still able to get around ok. Would highly recommend this tour.

Satoko was terrific. She probably had a heart attack when she saw all the middle-age and old people who had signed up for her tour but believe me, we all got something out of it - it was terrific! Really helped me understand the genesis of the Shinjuku neighborhood and why it has only developed recently into a tourist hub. It has a seamy side that is fascinating culturally - and we had such a great time checking out the Golden Gai area.Dinner at Boruga was GREAT too!

Satoko was absolutely incredible!!! She REALLY knows Tokyo!!! Satoko was the most knowledgeable, fun, and friendly guide we had during our trip to Japan! We did two days with her and I would have loved to do more! I felt completely comfortable with her and she spoke fluent English. She was flexible when our plans needed to be changed due to the weather and she took us to places I wanted to experience. She is AMAZING with kids. My two boys (who have special needs) and I LOVED her!!!

Satoko was a marvelous guide and a delightful young woman. As I have limited mobility Satoko arranged to drive our party around Tokyo by hire car. That meant we got to see the major sights together with extras that she included along the way. She was very competent behind the wheel. There were many highlights throughout the day including being taken to a tiny restaurant near the fish markets that only the locals know about. We wouldn't think of going to Tokyo again without engaging this great guide.

Satoko planned an interesting, fun and enjoyable day for my family in Tokyo. She provided interesting cultural information, showed us how to navigate the rail system, took us to local restaurant and was a very enjoyable guide. We saw some great sites and she always pointed to other things we could do in the areas we were if we were to go on our own the next day. Highly recommended.

Satoko was wonderful! And so the tour. She is very knowledgeable, pleasant and patient. Visited some incredible places we would never see without her. A perfect guide. Next time in Tokyo we will ask her to show us more things. Great experience!

Visiting the Tsukiji fish market with Satoko was great! It was such a better way to see the market than just walking around on our own, she really helped us to see and understand so much more about what the market offers and how it works. After meeting up, Satoko took us through the outer and then inner markets, stopping at various stalls to try a wide range of interesting foods. I definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is really interested in experiencing the market.
