Yoko was incredible. Her knowledge of the area, her ability to change directions to cater to our needs while making sure we got to be immersed in to the cultural was fantastic. I recommend Yoko for any tour she's available for.

I am not so well versed in the architectural world. Yoko helped me and tailored my tour to match both my interest and background. Very entertaining!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve: Thank you very much for your great review! I really appreciated it. I believe you also enjoyed the Sumo. Our Emperor and Empress were present, did you see them? If you did, you probably remembered what I told you at the Meiji Shrine. Well, please enjoy your stay in Japan. I look forward to seeing you and your family sometime in future! Regards, Yoko

Yoko is a great guide, and gave our family a first-rate private tour of Tokyo. We visited the city during the holidays, so many of the typical attractions on Yoko's tour were closed. But Yoko was able to improvise and created a memorable afternoon for us. She is extremely knowledgeable about the city, and gave us a perfect orientation, showing us a lot of hidden gems and adjusting the itinerary to our interests. She gave us wonderful advice about the rest of our trip. I recommend her without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fiona: It was my great pleasure to guide you and your beautiful family. Again, thank you very much for choosing my tour. Although many attractions were closed because of the new year holidays, it was fun to see another bustle of the popular Asakusa and I really enjoyed it. I am also glad to hear that you enjoyed shopping in Harajuku and Omotesando after my suggestion. I look forward to seeing you again in Tokyo in future! Yoko
Andrea DahlbergUnited States
Yoko was an amazing guide and a great way to start our visit to Tokyo! We went on a 4-hour tour our first full day. She was easy to talk to and knowledgeable about Tokyo's history, culture (food and art) and architecture. She explained local customs as we toured Asakusa, Ueno, Yanaka and beyond. She knew the "hidden gems" and we felt like locals! She also provided useful suggestions for getting around, additional neighborhoods to explore, and day-trips from Tokyo. A real delight and great tour of Tokyo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea: Thank you very much for your great review! I really enjoyed touring around with you and your family so it’s a bonus to hear that you liked it:D Yoko
Yoko was the perfect host. Very friendly and knowledgeable with regard to Japanese history. She was also very good with our kids. As you know, traveling with 7 and 9 year olds can be challenging but she was very patient and handled them well with alot of entertaining things to do. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jason for your great review! I am highly appreciated;D Please say hi to Belinda, Alex and Locklyn!! Yoko
What a great tour. Yoko was very accommodating and flexible. She took us to places in Tokyo we would never have found ourselves and well off the tourist path. The Tuna was sensational. So was the beer!! Thanks again Yoko for a memorable time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jason for your marvelous review! I highly appreciate:D I expected lower rating because was an incomplete tour due to a pilot. I will improve the tour upon your comment for you try it again sometime ;D
Yoko has a lovely manner and has lots of information. Her English is excellent and she took us to some interesting a new places to really understand how Tokyo is changing.

We had a wonderful morning with Yoko, the whole experience was both very organised and relaxed. Yoko was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and preferences. We were able to see parts of Tokyo we could not have found ourselves and enjoyed exchanging thoughts on the sights and attractions with Yoko. Would highly recommend.

We did this tour on October 31st and Yoko was fantastic! She took us to places we never would have found and we have a much greater appreciation for Tokyo because if her. By the end of the day she felt like an old friend. If you are interested in architecture then you need to book a tour with Yoko. We will definitely book a tour her if we ever make it back to Tokyo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Todd and Stacey, I really enjoyed and loved the tour:D Yoko
