    Janet was great! Knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to talk to. She showed me the restaurants, street art and river walk around Naka Meguro station. I had a fantastic time.

    I recently took my first trip to Tokyo and stayed in Akihabara. I can't praise them enough! I booked this tour for the 23rd, received a prompt reply and they even started answering questions before the tour date. During the tour, they were very great at conversation, enough to pull an introvert such as me out of my shell, helped me find specific figured from a specific anime that aired years ago, and it only got better from there. Their ability to ask a few simple questions and plan a four-hour tour that was interesting, fun, and exciting the entire time speaks wonders, and the next time I visit, I will definitely hire again! I can't wait to pick up where we left off and see more of what the area has to offer. Thanks for a great time!

    A great day at the Japanese seaside with Patrick. Temples, shrines, local food and Black Kites behaving like Seaguls. Amazing.

    It was a great overview of a huge topic! Martina gave me some great ideas for day trips from the major cities and some areas that I had not heard about which will help me plan my next trip - soon I hope!
