Mami Oishi and Yurie Kashima
We ended our trip to Japan.
We want to thank your organization and especially our guides Mami Oishi and Yurie Kashima for the support and assistance provided during our visit to Tokyo. His Spanish language was perfect and unsurpassable interest by explaining everything you need. Sent a souvenir photos.
Thanks for everything.

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.

Hello Tokyo free guide,
We had a wonderful time with Tomoko.
Tomoko is very nice and helpful.
Thanks to her we had a a wonderful meal, we went to a very nice tea ceremony and we learnt a bit more about Japanese culture and society.
Unfortunately, the day was too short
We’ll definitively ask for your service next time we’ll go back to Tokyo.

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!
Guide: Senichi Nagai
Route: Ueno – Yanaka – Shinjyuku – Harajyuku – Shibuya
We had some email contact with our guide before we arrived in Japan and we were eager to get to know him further. Senichi-san met us at our hotel in the Akasaka district, a considerable distance from his home. He had carefully prepared an itinerary that included shrines, temples, gardens, some of the older part of the city and a lunch restaurant. We walked and took public transport to the various sights and the entire time Senichi-san made sure we were able to understand all of the things we saw and did. He was considerate and knowledgeable and very kind to two gaijin new to his country. We had a most enjoyable day together. A particular highlight was the Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens which we found both beautiful and peaceful, but everything about the day was a pleasure. Thanks to TokyoFreeGuide.com, which we wholeheartedly recommend, and of course our new friend Senichi Nagai, for this terrific experience.
Ueno – Yanaka – Shinjuku – Harajuku – Shibuya
May I take this opportunity to thank you so much for such an excellent service. Our guide Ryuichiro Hayashi was the most polite, knowledgeable and pleasant person it was our fortune to meet. We have recommended not only your service but our wonderful guide Ichiro to everyone. Many many thanks, from Paula and Gordon.

Dear Tokyo Free Guide
We want to thank Koji Yamada for being our guide in Tokyo on September 19th and 20th 2009. He was a wonderful guide and showed us popular areas like Asakusa as well the back alleys of Nezu and Yanaka. He explained about these places in clear English and really enhanced our appreciation and understanding of Tokyo’s history and culture. He also taught us a few useful phrases in Japanese. Not only did he show us and tell us about the real Tokyo but also taught us how to use the subway so that we could explore on our own. Whoever said “You will be lost in Tokyo,” didn’t have Koji for a guide. In addition, he showed us inexpensive and authentic places that we would never have found by ourselves. We highly recommend Koji as a guide.
All the best,
Don Gabor and Eileen Cowell
Akihabara – Ueno – Kappabashi – Roppongi
We have just returned from our 2-weeks trip to Japan. Our stay in Tokyo was really great thanks to Yuichiro, who was completely attentive all the time, even when we asked some strange things as buying Mazinger-Z, Minerva-X and Godzilla figures or plastic food reproductions.
He even gave us a Japanese lesson!!!. Now Kanji, Kana and Kayakana do not have secrets for us…
We would like to recommend this altruist service to any tourist spending some time in Tokio. It is really fantastic.
Thank you very much, Youchiro. We enjoyed your company a lot, and hope you to come to Spain soon, so we can guide you this time.
