Satoko was amazing. Very kind, funny and very informative. She was very flexible with us and also very attentive to what we wanted to see. We would definitely recommend Satoko, she showed us all the best spots in Tokyo and also shared her knowledge about history and culture with us. Arigatou gozaimasu!

Satoko was amazing. Satoko gave us a great introductory tour of Tokyo, but it was clear theat she could do a much much more advanced and focused tour if appropriate. She is very well organized, knowledgeable, interesting, fun and patient. We highly recommend her services!

We recently visited Yokohama for 1 day onboard a cruise ship. I have a disability and rely on a mobility scooter. The ship did not offer any accessible tours in Yokohama so I was very lucky to find Satoko and engage her as our private tour guide for the day. Satoko was very resourceful, knowledgable and considerate. We had a fantastic day and I highly recommend her services to anyone visting Japan. Thank you Satoko.
