I want to sincerely thank you for the excellent guide service. I have traveled in over 50 countries now and I must say that the level of professionalism and guiding were second to none. All my TFG’s were excellent during my trip. Sanae with her big smile and warmth welcomed me to Japan, Ichiro was excellent and well prepared, Hanae was very good showing me around Tokyo with my special requests. I had opportunities to meet other TFG guides on this trip as we were a group of 6 they were all awesome and my friends were just in amazement at the level of service.
This service is invaluable to first time travelers to Japan especially in Tokyo, they cater to your interests; take you to great inexpensive restaurants. TFG bridges the gap between culture and local customs on a personable level. I must admit the sightseeing was very nice but the TFG’s were excellent hosts and guides it seemed that we were guided by friends and it made it a more memorable experience. If every country in the world would have a program like this, the world would be a better place, great ambassadors for Japan. A most memorable and enlighting trip.
Most highly recommended.

Thank you for your great service. We had the services of two of your excellent guides, H. K. on Sunday 24th of June and Chinami Nishizawa on Tuesday 26th of June. Both of these guides were excellent in all aspects and we had wonderful days full of memories with both. We will highly recommend your services to all our friends and colleagues who are visiting Tokyo. Please accept our sincere gratitude to your organisation and the two guides in particular for helping make our trip to Japan a very memorable one indeed.

I want to thank all of you again for making our days in Tokyo so memorable. It was such an outstanding experience but much too short. We must return. You were all so kind, patient and helpful. I don’t know how we would have managed without you. We enjoyed seeing the sights of Tokyo but equally, to meet you, talk to you and see this beautiful country and its culture from your viewpoint made it so much more than what we could have imagined. I am already dreaming of flying into Narita again!

I want to thank both of you for the extraordinary day we spent in Tokyo – a day I will never forget. Thanks to you I got to know Japan and feel very comfortable there very quickly. Also, you both are wonderful people. My heart was also touched as we said goodbye.

I had a fantastic time in Tokyo! Kaz-san and Riyo-san made it more of a realistic and memorable trip for me. Instead of just looking around like most tourists, I actually have someone native to tell me stories and different aspects of Japanese cultures. And someone to answer my questions. Also, I wouldn’t have had the chance to try Monjayaki or Liquid tofu if it wasn’t for you! But the best part is, on the trip, you weren’t like normal tour guides, you were much more like friends to me! I am really grateful for everything you’ve done for me! And I’d be more than happy to take you out if you ever visit wherever I am…So Thank you so much!!! and thanks again for the chocolates too, I promise I won’t send marshmallow

I highly recommend Tokyo Free Guide to anyone visiting Japan. Mai was a friendly and knowledgeable guide who took to me many different parts of Tokyo. Touring Japan with a native Japanese speaker definitely made my experience more enjoyable. Kaz also did a great job coordinating my tour with Mai. I’m glad I was able to meet both Mai and Kaz on my trip to Japan, and I hope both of them will be able to visit me in New York City in the future!
