Marta from Canada

January 2012
Route: Yanaka – Ueno Park – Ginza – Harajuku
Guide: Chikako

I know this is a year and a half late, but I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to TFG.  My guide Chikako and I had two wonderful days exploring various parts of Tokyo in January 2-3, 2012.

I told her all the kinds of things and places I was interested in visiting and she took me to all of them. She was there waiting for me at the airport and helped me from the start. She saved me tons of money by helping me take the trains instead of the taxi to and from the airport.

She took the time to come and meet me on my last day to help me get on the train to the airport when she did not have to. I had only booked the first two days of my trip with her and the other ones with a tour group.

She was just wonderful and I finally have a chance to say thank you so much.

Dear friends of TFG:

One year ago I start preparing our trip to Japan. At first it was only for my family, but little by little more friends were joining and, finally, we were a group of 12. Looking for information of Japan in Internet I found TFG’s page and put in touch with them.

In spite of the difficulties to guide such a numerous group, the staff of guides achieved that our vacations were fantastic, and they helped us to know not only nice places, but also a magnificent culture. Months before our arrival to Japan I began to correspond by mail with the equipment of guides of TFG, I believe that before they had never had such a numerous group.

On Thursday we visit the zones of Harajyuku and Shibuya with the friendliest and affectionate Mrs. Megumi Muro and Mrs. Kazumi. It was a fantastic morning visiting these so known zones. The day culminated with the Tea’sceremony that the nice and charming Mrs. Junko Murakami organized us in the Hotel Okura.

On Friday we visit Kamakura and Yokohama, where we were waited by Mr. Akio Watanabe and his partners Mr. and Mrs. Honda, and Mrs. Hideko Shimizu. What a funny and nice group.

We visit Hacedera, Kotoku-In and Tsurugaoka Hachiman-Gu. After having lunch in Kamakura we go to Yokohama where we visit Chuka-Gai and Minato Mirai. We end the night in an “Izakaya”, with Norma Yoshimi, his so charming teacher of Spanish.

For our last day in Tokyo we were accompanied with the greats and kindly Mrs. Junko Murakami and Mrs. Reiko Yoshikawa. We visit the park Koganei, Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum and Hamonika Yokocho in Kichijoji.

Thanks to the generous and affectionate group of TFG we have such a fantastic holidays, and we love so much Japan that we think to repeat soon, though surely we will not be so many people.

Best regards to the whole equipment of TFG.

Judi from Melbourne, Australia

January 2013
Guide: Michiyo Chida and Setsuko Kawaguchi
Route: Day 1: Harajuku – Shibuya – Asakusa – Hama Rikyu Garden; Day 2: Kamakura – Tokyo Tower – Odaiba (onsen); Day 3: Tsukiji – Ryogoku – Fuchu (classic concert); and Day 4: Imperial Palace – Ginza – Ueno

Dear TFG,

Regrettably it is time for me to leave Tokyo.
Although I have travelled widely in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia, this was my first trip to Japan. Even when travelling alone in the past, I have fared well, but my time in Tokyo surpasses those earlier travels and exceeded all my expectations due to the deep knowledge, wisdom and professionalism of Mrs. Michiyo Chida and Mrs. Setsuko Kawaguchi. They enriched my time in Tokyo immeasurably and led me to start thinking of when I can return – even before I have left.

I think your organization is marvellous – and very clever too – because these ladies have been such outstanding ambassadors for Japan and her people that I know that I will return. My return will be primarily because of the warm guidance that Michiyo and Setsuko have imparted during my short stay. Their insight into my needs showed great wisdom and intelligence.

Thank you for your help – and in particular I thank you for allowing me to share my time in Tokyo with these two lovely, clever, hard working ladies. As the photographs show, my time with them was marvellous.

The Lustre Family from USA

July 2010
Guide: Ryuichiro Hayashi
Route: Tsukiji fish market – Ginza – Asakusa – Akihabara; Tokyo Metropolitan Government building – Harajuku – Shibuya – Odaiba

My name is Maricel Lustre. A few weeks ago, I wrote to Tokyo Free Guide requesting a free tour. TFG assigned a wonderful tour guide to us named “Hayashi Ryuichiro” also known as Ichiro-san for short.
My family and I would like to thank Tokyo Free Guide for giving us Ichiro-san. He is very professional, punctual, knowledgeable and was able to save us money by using wise transportation. We enjoyed all of the places we visited but we had lots of fun in Odaiba. We also loved dining at Ganko. We are very happy in having Ichiro-san as our tour guide. Our14 year old son loved him! Ichiro-san was very patient with him. Our son could not stop talking about him. We learned so much from Ichiro-san. It was our first time to tour Tokyo and our experience was very memorable. Thank you very much Ichiro-san for showing us Tokyo. We feel very fortunate in having met you because in doing so we have gained a friend. Read the rest of this entry »

Mari & Isi from Spain

March 2010
Guide: Yukie Takahashi
Route: (Day 1) Kamakura; (Day 2) Harajuku – Omotesando – Shibuya

Gracias a Tokyo Free Guide y especialmente a nuestra guía Yukie, que habla español perfectamente, pudimos disfrutar de Tokio mas allá de lo puramente turístico. El primer día fuimos con Yukie a Kamakura, donde vimos esa parte más tradicional con templos increíbles donde se respiraba una paz especial, Yukie nos explicaba cada detalle. Después nos llevó al Bosque de Bambú donde tomamos un té tradicional japones, os lo recomiendo! Y finalmente vimos la estatua del Gran Buda, sólo decir que es IMPRESIONANTE! Para acabar la noche, nuestra guía reservó para cenar en un restaurante de Shibuya donde cenamos especialidades japonesas junto con más amigos de Yukie y para rematar nos fuimos de fiesta a un Karaoke!! Genial!
