Testimonials

“We can not say enough about what a wonderful guide Kumiko was for our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers). She gave the perfect amount of history and cultural references while also providing unique viewing points at the main tourist sites. Most uniquely she not only was marvelous photo journalist for our days but knew where to find special spots for pictures that our family photographer truly appreciated.” — Beth Goss

“My family and I learned so much and had an amazing time with Kumiko!! Best tour guide we had in Japan by far. We have 2 boys 8 and 11 who will tell you that she was their favorite also. Kumiko was flexible with our itinerary and enthusiastic teaching us about history, culture, religion in a conversational, easy to digest way. She stayed with us all day, later than planned to make sure our boys had fun at the Pokemon store, our last stop. We were grateful for the pictures she took, captured sweet moments!” — Tommy Beadel

“5 stars is not a high enough rating for this day. The tour was our suggestion. Kumi researched the possibilities and made suggestions. There were quite a number of emails between us until the day of departure. Everything went so well. Kumi made suggestions during the return trip as a result of which we enjoyed new experiences that will remain in our memories forever.” — Brian Walker

“Kumi and this tour were both beyond amazing. We are so sad that it ended and we had to say goodbye. Kumi knew about my mum’s mobility problems and researched beforehand where all the elevators were and best routes to take with a wheelchair. AMAZING! We will never forget rush hour on the trains, it was funny experience. Lunch was YUMMY and beautiful river views. We loved the history and interesting stories. Her english was great, made it easy to ask questions. WE LOVE KUMI!!! You will too! Best time ever” — Dyani Harris-Taylor

“Wow. What a great afternoon tour with a photographer.. Kumi was an excellent tour host and made the whole afternoon extremely enjoyable. We are both over 70 and were treated like family on a leisurely afternoon out. Kumi has a great sense of humour. We experienced a Japanese garden, Sensoji Temple and Shrine and a river cruise. At the end we had a meal at a popular Ramen restaurant. Now eagerly waiting for Kumi’s photo book memories of our tour. Thanks Kumi.” — Anthony Bennett

“Kumi is the perfect guide. Our afternoon with her was like having a personal tour by a close friend who lives in Tokyo. She provided lots of background information about local customs, history, language, food, public transport – everything we wanted to know. She obviously loves her job and was happy to spend extra time with us at the end of the tour. I wanted to buy a special fountain pen so Kumi helped us find the store and act as a translator for us. What a gem!” — Martin Fox

“Kumi was an absolutely charming guide. She showed us a great contrast between old and new Japan on our tour. An added advantage is that she is an accomplished photographer and took over 100 photos during the day‚Ķ..you can just enjoy the tour without worrying about capturing the experience. Kumi is delightful company and I would highly recommend her services.” — Scott Geddes

“Kumi is AMAZING! By far the best tour guide I have used anywhere in the world. Friendly, energetic, very knowledgeable, and FLEXIBLE. That flexibility is key when you have a party of 6. She knows the shortcuts to take, the best views for photos, the best nick-knack areas, cozy places to eat, and ALL the history behind it all. And she takes wonderful photos of your party. Book her now, or you run the risk of us booking her again first! Amazing tour!!!!!!!” — Christopher Martin
