We had such a great time with Sachiko for two days walking and exploring Tokyo via the subway system. She was friendly and warm with our two children (3&6), and was able to guide us expertly around the city which meant we were able to make the most of our time there. I would highly recommend Sachiko for tours in Tokyo and Japan. Thanks Sachiko!

I really enjoyed my all day walking tour through Tokyo with Sachiko. Sachiko is a fantastic guide, she tailored the tour exactly to what I wanted to see. And we had very interesting conversations along the way, Sachiko is very knowledgeable about Tokyo and its sights. It's amazing how much I managed to see with Sachikos help in only one day! Very well done and highly recommendable!

100% the very best way to start your trip in Japan. If you have only a day in Tokyo or if you are here for a week this tour is definitely the way to go. Sachiko was probably the best tour guide I've ever had, and I've done a lot of traveling. She was very knowledgeable and also helped me and my wife learn the railway system in Tokyo and helped give us ideas for things to do on our other days in Tokyo. Overall I couldn't recommend Sachiko or this tour enough, me and my wife both loved it.

Our trip with Sachiko was an 8-hour tour around Tokyo. As requested by us, she showed us the main tourist attractions of the city. She told us a lot about the Japanese lifestyle and customs. She was willing to adapt to our needs and interests. The car we used during the tour was a luxury van with air conditioning. It was perfect to move around the city on such a hot day. We highly recommend Sachiko and this tour!

Tour: #107741, Little Edo-Kawagoe - Private Tour, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Aug 2/18

This was our only trip of 4, with Sachiko san, that was by public transport. The travelling/walking before we arrived at the old town was time consuming and tiring in the 36 degree heat. Have visited some wonderful places in our other tours with Sachiko san. However, Little Edo-Kawagoe was only mildly interesting. There were some buildings of architectural merit helping to create some photogenic street scapes. In our opinion you could miss out the Festival Museum & Candy Shop Street attractions.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very sorry to know that you do not like Kawagoe. It is a quite popular sightseeing spot around Tokyo. More than seven million people visit there and they enjoy the retrospective atmosphere in Kawagoe.

We were very fortunate that the weather allowed a good view of Mt. Fuji, although in the summer months the iconic snow cap is missing! Visited the Maglev Exhibition Centre to experience/view 500km/hr test runs of the world record breaking high speed train, blink and you have missed it! Sachiko san recomended the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum which is an architectural masterpiece in itself and the displays of tie dyed silk and glass beads were delightful. Musuem shop with beautiful gifts. A full & varied day.

Tour was altered due to very hot weather. However the visit to the imperial palace was just a lot of walking to see a guard house and some rock walls. Not very interesting. The imperial gardens were just a few pretty black and red pine trees. Sorry but we expected more. The museum was good. We road a lot of trains and subways. Glad our guide knew her away around them. See the old shopping area was as we expected and enjoyable.

Sachiko is a kind and thoughtful guide. She brought snacks knowing the day would be long and water too. However, she was on her cell phone frequently and this didn't help with knowing that various planned activities were closed. It was an expensive tour but I didn't get to experience it the way it was described.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was able to visit the places I showed on the itinerary. I explained everythig to you. I feel sorry that your co-worker was not able to join the tour. It became very expensive because you were the only one guest. And also, we had terrible traffic jam on that date around Owakudani Valley as you know, so we had change our schedule. It was necessary for me to use my phone to check everything in order to complete your tour.

I take it as a positive feedback to improve my English especially when I'm not a native English speaker and do well in future. It was a 4-hour tour but her husband invited me to lunch at the end of our tour.

The guide was friendly and I was met on time at my hotel. Her English is reasonable and she is clearly very knowledgeable about her city. I asked for a 3 hour introductory tour starting in the afternoon. I had not really thought about what I wanted to see and intended to leave it in the hands of the guide. With hindsight it would have been better had I given this more thought beforehand. Having said that it was a useful and enjoyable first day in Japan.

Sachiko was a great guide. She tailored the tour to our wishes and offered expert commentary along the way. One of us was handicapped and she took this into account, pacing the tour, minimizing walking distances and making sure the van was available at convenient locations. If you are ever in Tokyo, you can't do better than her.

Worthwhile excursion! Sachi is knowledgeable, professional, interesting, personable, and accommodating. She made sure we saw all the highlights of Kamakura - we especially enjoyed the Zen Buddhist Temple situated in the bamboo forest. The green tea was a bonus! Lunch was perfect. Most of all, our guide gave important and interesting information but she never preached and her primary concern was our enjoyment, comfort, and interest. We did and saw so much and never felt overwhelmed. Ideal introduction!

Sachiko was awesome! My wife and I along with our son and his friend had a wonderful day on Mt. Fuji and in the Hakone region. Sachiko is extremely knowledgable and has wonderful attention to detail. She arranged a wonderful lunch at a small restaurant and ensured that it would have a very particular type of sushi that I had talked about. Touring with Sachiko was like touring with family. I highly recommend.

We highly recommend Sachiko who was our guide to Mt. Fuji and Tokyo. We had a great time talking with her about the history and importance of sites on our tours, as well as many other places we had visited in Japan. She deftly handled our last minute requests and went above and beyond in trying to help us find a bear pillow for our daughter (even calling the manufacturer!), and making reservations for us at an owl café. Sachiko was always upbeat and personable, making our two days together a pleasure.

We had a party of 8 and Sachiko was very accommodating in helping us hire a minibus for our tour. Her English is excellent and her knowledge of Hakone and Fuji made for an informative and entertaining tour. She was also very flexible to permit us to see our specific sites of interest. A truly memorable experience!

Sachiko was great. She met us at our hotel and took us to the various sites that we had agreed upon prior to the tour. She was very accommodating and at the end when we had extra time she took us to another destination not on the list and make sure we were comfortable getting back to the hotel on our own. Sachiko was very kind and shared with us Japanese culture and history as we progressed through the tour. We had a lot of fun trying new food along the way as well.

Sachiko was a wonderful tour guide. Very warm, pleasant, friendly and fluent in English. The family had a fantastic time strolling around the fish market with Sachiko as our guide. We did the sushi making class and I have to say at first I was on the fence about it but it was one of the best highlights of the trip. I am a total sushi snob and this place Sachiko arranged for the class was everything you would expect from Tokyo. Afterwards we walked around Ginza. I highly recommend Sachiko!

Our Kamakura trip with Sachiko was awesome and full of fun. She treated us very good, like her own family. We totally changed our plans for the day and she was okay with it. She was very accommodating to our needs and wants all the time. She helped us with our souvenir- shopping. I can recommend her to everyone because she is really a wonderful tour guide and very helpful everytime we ask her questions about almost anything. Thanks a million, Sachiko

Sanchiko was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and always in good spirit throughout our entire tour. She catered to our wishes as to where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see, but most especially, helped me make my reservation for our Shinkansen rise to Kyoto. It felt like we found a family member in Japan! We have two more tours with her and we know, for sure, that both of them will be as good as this first one. Thank you, Sanchiko-San!! We appreciate you.

I had a wonderful day tour of Tokyo with Sachiko. She has an extensive knowedge of the history, and listened to what was important to me. Sachiko speaks english really well and has a great sense of humour. I felt very relaxed and taken care of during our tour. Her passion for Tokyo was evident and she made our day together really fun and enlightening! I couldn't recommend Sachiko enough! You won't be disappointed, as she exceeded my expectations of the day.

Sachiko is a very kind woman with a warm presence. She is the most flexible tour guide I have ever had. We told her the things we wanted to do and see at the beginning of the tour and she helped plan the day with us. She gives good suggestions on things to do and things to see based on your itinerary. She's knowledgable on history and honest about what's worth doing and what's not. Also, she had solid communication with our driver so we could transport through Tokyo easily. We had a wonderful day.

Get the most from your visit to Tokyo. Sachiko will guide you through Tokyo's complex subway system to many fantastic destinations; I would have gotten lost without her. She was very courteous, and offered to take pictures whenever I desired. I will hire her again on my next visit.
