Tomie is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and cultural heritage. She was able to answer my many questions and exceeded my expectations with the information she provided. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Yvonne, Thanks a lot for your warm comments to my guiding. I was happy to be shared with numerous topics with you. I am looking forward to seeing you in Japan. Fondly, 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! Thank you ever so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Meike, Thank you so much for your warm comment to my tour. I am glad to know my information made your first day in Japan fine even a little bit. Thank you again. See you soon. Tomie

We enjoyed our tour with Tomie very much. We were all a little tired and jet lagged but she kept our tour fun and interesting and was kind enough to have extended her time to join us for a delicious authentic Japanese lunch. She also showed us some origami. Tomie was personable and professional and escorted us back to our hotel after the tour safe and sound.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shana, I am glad to know all of your family enjoyed the tour. I had very intersting time each of your family, in particular your lovely three daughters. Thanks again. Tomie
Tomie is an excellent guide and we were very glad we choose her. Her communication with us was very prompt right from the booking confirmation. She tailored the tour to meet our needs and was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. She gave us a really good introduction into the Tokyo rail system. We would highly recommend Tomie if you need someone to help you negotiate the tourist sites of Tokyo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ian, Your high rating and tender comment to me made me happy. Thank you so much for hiring me as your guide. Take care. With great thanks. 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

Tomie customized the tour to my interests. We took the train all over Tokyo. Saw an interesting Japanese garden, had traditional Japanese tea and went to a Japanese market. Tomie was very knowledgable and pleasant. I highly recommend her tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robin, I am so glad to know you had a good time in my tour even though time was very limited. I was also happy to be shared various topics with you.
