Hi TFG!!

We just wanted to say thank you very much to Mario for such a wonderful days! We enjoyed a lot visiting Tokyo with you. Thanks for sharing with us this invaluable way of discovering a city, mixing food, history, culture and enriching conversations.

Can’t imagine a best way for understanding a different culture that living all those experiences with someone like you.

Thanks for planning and re-planning our visits according to the desires of the Typhoon Francisco. It tried to ruin our days in Tokyo but it couldn’t! :-)

Congratulations for the amazing country you have: The contrasts of Tokyo, the history and Shrines of Kyoto, the calm of Koyasan, the landscapes of Miyajima… We will not forget the friendliness, hospitality and charm of Japanese people.

Thank you TFG for this kind of service that makes possible to live a really wonderful Tokyo Experience!

Thank you Mario, for making our vacations so unforgettable and let us sharing a “small piece” of japan with you.

Karin (Kiki) and Marty from California, USA

November, 2007
Guide: Kyoko Minami
Route: Meiji Shrine – Asakusa – Hama Rikyu Garden – Ginza – Kabuki Theater


We’re Karin (Kiki) and Marty Levine, from the Los Angeles area of California.

We’d like to compliment you on your marvelous organization, having had the pleasure of a first-hand experience with Kyoko Minami, one of your volunteer guides, recently.

We spent the entire day with Kyoko on Friday, November 16, 2007, and feel that our time with her was the highlight of our Tokyo stay, as well as being one of the best days of our two and a half week stay in Japan.

Kyoko met us at our hotel as planned, and within minutes we felt that we were with an old friend. We had corresponded with her prior to our trip,and had expressed our interest in certain areas and sites in Tokyo. She had agreed, and we set off for a day that will live in our memories forever.

We visited the Meiji Shrine, Asakusa, took the Sumida River cruise from Asakusa to Hama Rikyu Garden, and then explored Ginza, where Kyoko showed us the Kibuki Theater and introduced us to the wonders of the Mitsukoshi Department Store, as well as showing us Chuo Dori, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas.

We sampled Japanese food that we’d heard of: okonomiyaki and yaki soba, and enjoyed tea and a little “mutual gift exchange” at Kuremuri Tea Salon in Ginza.

Throughout the day, Kyoko was enthusiastic, helpful, professional and friendly. Her English is excellent, so we were able to ask lots of questions,exchange ideas and honestly, laugh a lot. Her knowledge of the city is outstanding,which, of course, contributed to the success of the day.

Kyoko is an outstanding guide, and a wonderful person. She made a very positive impression on us, and we can’t help but smile when we speak of her. She is,as we say here, “just the greatest.”

Since our return, we’ve corresponded several times, and hope to keep in touch with her.

Thank you so much for arranging our meeting.

Guide: Junichiro and Kanako
Route: Asakusa – Edo Museum – Kokugikan – Imperial Palace – Sony Building – Ginza – Kabukiza

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.

Min from Chicago, USA

February, 2005
Guide: Kaz & Riyo
Route: Tsukiji – Kabuki – Tsukishima – Ginza – Harajuku – Meiji Shrine

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 ;)
