My husband and I were at some point reluctant to go to Japan amid the virus outbreak. But we don't regret it. From organizing our trip to answering our demands, Yoko and Xavier have been there all the way. This has been an outstanding holiday. We have seen some magical sights.

After reading the great reviews of Yoko, we booked her to guide us and also arrange the rest of our Japan tour this Jan/feb for 8 days. we started with Toyosu the fish market plus lunch after - we skipped Tsujiki as we had been there recently. the visit was outstanding - seeing the wet market and tuna being cut as well as other live seafood. the lunch afterward by the chef was wonderful with large amount of sashimi and uni! we got such a personal tour experience - definitely recommended! we then toured tokyo for another day and moved on to Kanazawa where Yoko arrange accommodation and booked a spectacular Kaiseki at Guokusen which has a beautiful garden. She preordered a live king crab for us at our request and it was amazing. We then went on to see the snow monkeys, staying at Korakutan for one night (monkeys were all over the building and peeking into the windows - you see lots of them). They were also in the outdoor onsen, but I decided to pass on joining them! it snowed the next day and the snow monkeys performed just as in the videos/photos you see online - there were about 200 of them - definitely worth the visit. We then stayed at the outstanding Aburaya ryokan with fabulous Kaiseki where the chef came into the private room to cut sashimi/sushi personally. We had wanted to see the ice sculptures in Hokkaido, but it was happening on the day we were leaving - Yoko was the only agent who was aware of the ice show at Matsumoto castle and booked us the Marunouchi hotel which was <200 yards to the castle! we were able to watch them get started with blocks of ice in the evening and see the finished product the next morning! We travelled to all these places by train - it would have been impossible if not the detail oriented Yoko who labelled each envelop with each days ticket, seat details etc. she booked all the accommodations for us and arranged a local guide. When we returned back to Tokyo on our own before our flight back - Yoko was always available on WhatsApp to answer Q and offer suggestions. Having a guide IN Japan itself who is responsive and knowledgeable is priceless. We look forward to our next trip with Yoko. Thank you Yoko for making our trip flawless and marvelous!!

We had a great tour with all the highlights of Tokyo. Yoko taught us how to navigate Tokyo on public transportation. It was so easy to do(with her help). Thank you Yoko for a great day in Tokyo!

Thanks to Yoko and her team in Japan for helping us make this trip even better than expected. We had a great time and learnt so much from the guides. They were all super accomodating and always willing to go the extra mile to answer all our questions and make us feel comfortable. Highly recommended :)

Yoko was our guide in Kyoto. She showed us the city and its cultural treasures in a fantastic way that allowed us to better understand the Japanese way of life. We hope to meet her again soon. She is the guide that everyone wishes for.

Thank you very much for your comments! It was pleasure meeting you. Although one day was not enough to see the most cultured city in Japan, we actually did a lot and taste a flavor of Kyoto. Hope to see you again and please take care. Best Regards, Yoko
