Route: The Imperial Palace – Yurakucho (Okonomiyaki lunch) – Meiji Shrine – Yurikamome Line – Shiodome
Guide: Mayumi Fujihashi

Thank you for the amazing day. Since I came to Japan I have met a lot ofgreat, friendly people but my guide, Mayumi was truly special.

She was alovely person, who knew clever ways to guide me throughout Tokyo, explainedeverything in details, and had many interesting stories about Japanese history and culture.

She introduced me to Okonomiyaki restaurant, which Ihaven’t had before and quickly became my favorite. This Tokyo Free Guide program makes us love Japan, and I will definitely recommend to my friends that this will be unique and unforgettable experience for them as well.

Bestwishes and hope you continue with this beautiful mission, I love your great country.

We appreciate your time and effort to join us for the day and professional commitment.

Wish you well in your retirement and future activities.

From Australia with love.

July 2009
Guide: Keiko Nagamatsu; Naomi; Mitsuyo Fujiwara
Route: Z?j?-ji – Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building – Meiji Shrine – Odaiba – Shiodome; Nikko (T?sh?-g? – Futarasan Shrine – Rinn?-ji); Kamakura


You were so kind to arrange for three guides for our trip to Japan on relatively short notice. They were Keiko-san on July 13th for Tokyo, Naomi-san on July 15th for Nikko, and Mitsuyo-san on July 16th for Kamakura. We want to thank you very much for these arrangements. They were the best guides we ever had anywhere. All of them were extremely kind, knowledgeable, professionally meticulous in the preparation of our trips, very personal, fluent in English and German respectively, had sense of humour – and just were plain charming. My wife Christina and I were enchanted and extremely lucky of having these wonderful three ladies as guides. We saw and learnt so much more on these three trips than we could ever have managed by doing it ourselves. The sightseeing tours were unforgettable experiences both into the venerable ancient Japanese culture with its unique temples, shrines and gardens and the breathtaking modern Japan with her mind boggling architecture.

Thanks to you personally for providing our wonderful guides and for serving tourists from all over the world with your fine agency. We will recommend Tokyo Free Guide to all of our friends and acquaintences planning to see Tokyo. Please feel free to quote us as you see fit.

Kind regards,

Guide: Eriko Yoneyama
Route: Asakusa – Hamarikyu – Shiodome – Kabukiza

Free guide, I would just like to pass on our thanks for the efforts Eriko put in to show us Tokyo. She met us at the agreed time of 9 am and it was only much later in the day that we discovered she had travelled over 1.5 hours to be our guide for the day. We were very grateful that someone would devote their time to show us around.

The days activities Eriko had organised were excellent and something we could not have achieved with only a printed guide book. Eriko was the ultimate hostess, easy going and friendly and a great ambassador for Tokyo and Japan.

We would highly recommend Tokyo and the TokyoFreeGuide service to anyone wanting to experience Tokyo.

Guide: Yu Arafuka
Route: Shinagawa – Tsukiji – Shiodome – Yanaka – Nezu – Shinjuku

Dear Tokyo Free Guide,

We wholeheartedly thank you for your group’s wonderful service. After submitting my request online, within a few days we were matched up with Yu Arafuka.? We exchanged a few e-mails where we let him know some of the things we were interested in seeing and he came back with suggestions of possible places to go.? For our tour, Yu was kind enough to meet us directly at the lobby of our hotel.? Even more so, because we were interested in visiting Tsukiji Market, he was able and willing to meet us at the early hour of 7am – we really appreciated this!? Throughout the tour, he was very prepared knowing exactly where to go.? We would ask many questions about things we saw along the way and about life in Japan and he tried very hard to give us an answer even though some of our questions may have been a little difficult. Yu not only served as a wonderful guide, but was also a great conversational partner and someone for us to ‘hang out’ with for a whole day.? We are truly grateful for your group’s service (especially for matching us with our wonderful tour guide Yu), and would not hesitate to ask for a guide again next time we visit Tokyo!

Thank you once again,
Yan and David from Canada

Guide: Nagisa & Yoshihiro
Route: Hamarikyu – Shiodome – Yurakucho – Ueno

Everyone that travels to Tokyo for the first time should try this wonderful guide experience. The first time for anyone in such a big city can be intimidating but Nagisa and Yoshihiro were superb hosts. They made the entire day a hassle free experience and were always looking for ways to enhance the experience. They showed us some wonderful places and also made some phone calls to help us get good directions for the rest of our stay. I am so thankful for their help and would do it again in a heartbeat. Our first full day in Tokyo and as you can see by the pics it was raining but because of time with our Tokyo Free Guides it was the best day off all.
