Tomie is a very kind and friendly guide. She was very accomodating with my family especially my kids. My husband and kids enjoyed the visit to the museum and park. She even taught us how to make a Mt Fuji origami! Given the short visit, we learned to appreciate the Japanese culture and its people.

We had such a wonderful experience with Tomie!!! She was a lovely guide for us on our first day ever in Tokyo. Being very new to the city, she took the time to explain the trains and basic etiquette which helped us out all week. She took us to a couple of small shrines in the neighborhood, walked us through a japanese grocery store and explained every step with our cooking staff. The whole team was attentive and wonderful. And now we are looking forward to recreating these wonderful recipes at home!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Han family, I do appreciate your kind comments to my tour. I am very glad to know each of your family had a good time on the cooking! Hope the recipes work well for your appetite. With many thanks, Tomie

Tomie was the best! She guided us throughout Tokyo and took us to many interesting places. Her knowledge of this very large city is second to none. She is friendly, kind and easy to get to know. We could have never visited Tokyo on our own but with Tomie it was so easy. We traveled by subway and she made it seem like we had done this all our lives, we never once questioned which way to go, how to get tickets out of the machines or how much to pay for the ticket. We highly recommend Tomie.

A wonderful experience for all of us! Tomie is knowledgeable, kind and speak wonderful English. She took us around, explained the Temples and showed us a bit of the history of Tokyo before the food! The cooking school, well they are amazing. My 7 year old son River loved it! They were so kind, and brought him into the process so well. The food, was amazing! They worked to make sure all of us were having fun, and learning. I truly felt as if we have made friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joel, I do appreciate your kind comments to my tour. I am glad to know all your family had a good time at the Japanese cooking. I do hope you might be enjoyed it at your house again! Also I will tell your comments to each staff at the cooking school. See you soon! With many thanks, Tomie

Spending the morning of our first full day in Japan with Tomie was like being with a friend showing you around their home town. She is an absolute wealth of knowledge; sharing both historical and anecdotal information on almost everything. She has a lovely demeanour and I felt comfortable asking her to adjust the itinerary to include something of particular interest to me. I highly recommend spending the day or half a day with Tomie!

A memorable way to spend our first day in Japan and Tomie was great and knowledgable about Japan and Tokyo... A great way to start our trip. She had a great sense of humour and really wanted to make sure that we enjoyed our time and even helped us plan our travel for the following day's trip as the train system can be a little daunting. We plan to come back and will make sure we use Tomie again to get the most out of our trip. This is the first time we have used a local guide but it won't be the last

We found Tomie to be extremely friendly and informative. She took a personal interest in making sure that we saw and learned about the areas of Tokyo that we wanted to see. This was our first time and our first day in Tokyo after arriving from Florida and we were still tired from the long flight over. She was extremely kind and accommodating in adjusting her schedule so that we could see things at a slower pace, due to our "jet lag". We would highly recommend her to others coming to Tokyo.

Tour: 8-h Tokyo tour from Yokohama, Tokyo, Japan
Date: May 1/13

We had a great day exploring Tokyo. Tomie was right on time for an early departure from the Yokohama Cruise Terminal. She expertly guided our group of six while taking public transportation in crowded Tokyo. She was a real joy and so full of information. Tomie was always prompt and professional in her communications with me in planning the day. Thank you again for your thoughtful services.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joe, I do appreciate your kind and high comment to me. I am so glad to know you had a good time even very limited time. Please send my best regards to everyone. With great thanks. Tomie

What a day, weather was fine and clear,Tomie was great, and got to see and travel on the train and not get lost.Tomie has a great knowledge of her town, and gave great descriptions of what we saw. Well worth doing this tour, especially when we saw cherry blossom tree in flower, in one of the gardens we went to. Be prepared for lots of walking, but with time to sit and relax. A tour both my wife and I fully enjoyed. well done

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ian, I am so happy to know both of you had a good time in Japan. I do also appreciate your high rating to my tour. I've been looking forward to seeing you again even at the age of 300!?? Take care. Tomie

Tomie gave me a wonderful half day in-depth tour of Harajuku including the temple. She gave me much insight into the Shinto religion and the people of Japan. We also saw many things that the average tourist would not see and experience. I highly recommend a day with Tomie.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michelle, I do appreciate your sweet comment to my tour! I am so happy to know you had a good time at Harajuku. Michelle, if you have a time, please access to ToursByLocals Blog, which I do hope makes your interst of Japanese food much deeper. See you soon. Tomie
