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!

Route: Day 1 Asakusa – Ueno – Akihabara; Day 2 Shibuya – Shinjuku
Guide: Kiyotoshi Ota

Magnífico día con mi guía Kiyo. Fuimos al Templo Senso-ji, Parque Ueno y el barrio de Akihabara.

Como quedé muy satisfecho de la experiencia, volvimos a quedar para cenar por la zona de Shibuya.

Kiyo me llevó a un bar japonés auténtico, sin turistas, ni carta en inglés.

Muchas gracias a Tokyo free Guide y en especial a mi guía Kiyo que habla un perfecto español. Sin duda alguna, si vuelvo a Tokyo repetiría la experiencia.

Arigato Gosaimas !!!!

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.

Sincerely,

Judi from Melbourne

Guide: Makiko Yamaoka, Noriko Shgehara, and Reiko Matsuda
Route: Day 1: Hamamatsu-cho – Imperial Palace – Ginza (Sony building, Mitsukoshi); Day 2: Hikarigaoka Park – Ikebukuro – Yanaka (Zensyoan temple) – Nippori; Day 3: Tsukiji fish market – Hamarikyu-garden – Sushi restaurant – Kichijoji – Shinjuku; Day 4: Asakusa – Ueno – Shibuya – Roppongi Hills; Day 5: Meiji Jingu Shrine – Omotesando – Aoyama – Tea Ceremony @ Tameikesano – Ueno Okachimachi – Hamamatsu-cho – Odaiba – Harumi Terminal

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!

Kindest regards,
Silvia

Alan and Linda from USA

May 2010
Guide: Hiroko Kitagou, Yoko Takano
Route: Imperial Palace – Asakusa – Ueno (Tokyo National Museum); Tokyo Metropolitan Government building – Shinjuku Gyoen – Meiji Shrine

My husband, Alan, and I cannot say enough good things about Tokyo Free Guide. Both of the guides met us at our hotel each morning with a plan for the day.Hiroko made sure we understood how to use the subway system and without her I don’t know if we would have figured out we could ride JR lines free with our Japan Railpass.  She arranged for a bus tour for us in the area near the Imperial Palace which helped us get a better idea of our surroundings. We ate lunch near the Senjoji Temple where I had shabu-shabu for the first time and Alan had tempura. We had been reluctant to go into restaurants before this because we couldn’t read the menus but Hiroko showed us what to do and it made such a difference the rest of the trip. By spending time with Hiroko, we learned so much about Buddhist and Shinto shrines and temples. Read the rest of this entry »

January 2010
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.

Guide: Ryuichiro Hayashi
Route: 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.
