Yasuko did a fantastic job guiding us through Yanaka for the afternoon. She was as friendly as she was knowledgeable about Old Tokyo culture and history. She was also very responsive and accommodating regarding a last-minute change in meeting location. Thank you, Yasuko!

Yasuko is a fabulous guide! She is very friendly and speaks excellent English. She showed us many great sites and interesting areas of Tokyo. And she was very flexible with the itinerary and was able to accommodate taking our son to a special store he wanted to see. Thanks Yasuko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm words. It was a wonderful day to tour around Tokyo. Hoping you will fully enjoy the New Year Holiday!

Tokyo is massive, you have no idea until you get there. It's also nuts in terms of understanding how to get around. Yasuko took care of that. I left the itinerary completely up to her and she showed me a lovely city equalled by her knowledge, obvious pride and humour. A really lovely tour and Yasuko is the one to choose.

Yasuko was a fantastic guide. Very well organized and very thoughtful - not only was our tour customized for us, but we were able to modify it as we went along to allow for everyone's energy levels. Introducing us to the metro train system was especially helpful. Whatever you do, I would recommend a food market tour to experience some local cuisine, and also a formal tea ceremony to just slow down and relax.

Yasuku is a thoroughly professional guide. We could not fault her meticulous planning and her efforts in meeting our wishes for a wonderful day visiting the non-touristy areas of Tokyo. She organised a private car and driver, a luncheon at a family run Japanese restaurant and was very helpful at the Tokyo station and catching the Narita Express. Her knowledge of Tokyo history from musket balls to Shinto was a delight. Very highly recommended.

We were very happy with our tour guide in Tokyo, Japan. She spoke excellent English. Answered all of our questions. Adjusted the planned trip as we requested to see the sites we preferred. She was on time and very easy to talk to. She communicated with us on email prior to our arrival to confirm the plans.

Yasuko was a most pleasant and knowledgeable guide. We did a half day tour. This is not enough time to fully appreciate the city, but Yasuko made a good program to make the most of the time.

Thank you, Yasuko, for an amazing first day in Tokyo! Yasuko is so knowledgeable, and a pleasure to spend the day with. She read us like a book and took us to some off the beaten path spots where we could escape the crowds and see some special places. We covered so much ground, and she gave us great ideas for our remaining days in Tokyo. Highly highly recommend!

Yasuko guided me around textile and fabric stores this morning She was able to quickly pick up on the particulars of my sewing interests and did an excellent job educating me on how to use the subway so as to be able to return to the places on my own later to have more time to browse and buy. She had clearly done plenty of background work before we set out. The pace was just right.

We wouldn't have enjoyed Japan as much if we hadn't started with this tour with Yasuko showing us the ropes. Her knowledge of Tokyo was excellent. She clearly enjoys her work and made sure we ended our day with a better understanding of the city and people.

Yasuko was excellent! I booked a custom 5hr tour w/transportation for our family of 10 (incl granddaughters, 4 & 2 yrs old) to Kirin Brewery Yokohama & Tsukiji Market. Yasuko was very friendly, knowledgeable, patient & helpful. Her translation from Japanese to English at the Kirin tour made the overall experience an outstanding one! At Tsukiji she recommended a local shop for dishes & gifts where shopping was terrific, then a restaurant for awesome sushi. Yasuko was happy to extend an addl 30 min.

Yasuko is a knowledgeable and experienced tour guide. My wife and I toured (by foot and subway) several Tokyo neighborhoods with Yasuko, and she provided lots of interesting background information. She also gave us some helpful advice on the proper way to eat sushi and on what "street food" we should try and, perhaps more important, what we should avoid. We enjoyed the time we spent with her.

We had an incredible tour with Yasuko. She picked us up and showed us the highlights of Tokyo. Our family did not have much time and she made it possible to see and learn as much as possible. We enjoyed a wonderful day with her!

Oh my gosh, this was a fabulous tour! Yasuko was awesome and tended to our every needs. She was willing to make adjustments and we actually were able to tour more sights than originally planned. If you have only a short visit in Tokyo, then this is the tour to take with Yasuko. She is as nice as nice can be, her English is very good, and she is a lovely person. You won't regret choosing Yasuko for your tour!

We were very happy with our tour. It was our first day in Japan, and in addition to showing us the areas we asked to see and providing historical and cultural context, she helped to acquaint us with the use of the trains and subways, and gave us excellent advice regarding restaurants and suggestions for the remainder of our too-brief stay. Highly recommended.
