Guide: Michiko Noda
Route: Ikebukuro – Shinjuku (Takano Fruit Parlour, BIC-QLO, shopping)
I would like to thanks to TFG and Michiko Noda for our day in Tokyo. This is our second trip with Michiko. We really impress with her effort. Although, it was just a half day, we really enjoy it. We spent our day in Shinjuku only but 5 hours passed so fast as we all had fun.

I would like to express my sincere thank to Michiko Noda, our TFG on 7 Nov 2012. We really had the great time in Japan although it was a short trip. We went to Nezu, Imperial Palace, Tea ceremony at Ippo-do and the Tokyo
International Forum Building. Thank you for her time as she had helped us a lot with the train. Without her, we would have wasted lots of time finding the tickets and exits. Also, the tea ceremony was another great experience for us. We would like to thank TFG and Michiko Noda again for such a great hospitality.

I wouldn’t know how to express my gratitude to Tokyo Free Guide and especially to my unforgettable guides Makiko Yamaoka, Noriko Shigehara and Reiko Matsuda. Your hearty welcome, cordial hospitality and enthusiastic company are beyond words.
You made sure that I would see the best of Tokyo, you created for me a perfect balance between old and new, our itineraries were planned and yet spontaneous (just the way I like it!)… so that each moment with you turned out to be exciting and fulfilling.
In fact, your precious help began prior to my arrival to Tokyo, when you indicated the best transportation from Narita airport to my hotel. You also introduced me to the subway system and constantly helped me navigate myself around.
I would never be able to experience Tokyo as well as I did with my generous and knowledgeable guides. I consider it great and exceptional fortune to have met Makiko, Noriko and Reiko! I already miss them.
I’m looking forward to going back to Tokyo to see my new friends!

We my family had a great time in japan. we (rafael, Clelia and Tato) have done a wonderful trip to Japan in January 25-2010
we are not descendants of Japanese but we had a curiosity to know a developed and organized country. were delighted with this country. but I confess that what made the difference was to have the support of the guides Katsue and Noriko. … They are wonderful people, and we particularly like being able to be with them.
We would like to congratulate the “free guide” service. especially Katsue and Noriko.

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!
