    こんにちは Kon'nichiwa We liked the tour very much! Our guide (Sorry I don't remember the right name) was friendly and has a great culinary knowledgeand and spoke excellent english. The tour itself was entertaining and interesting.The small food stores are worth a visit and I would like to come back. The lunch stop for sushi in the restaurant was fantastic - very traditional private atmosphere. Group size was small with 2 persons and therefor very individually to our wishes Overall highly recommend this tour. Japan is very interesting and we hope to return to Tokyo soon. Best regards from vienna Andrea & Gerhard

    Amanda was incredibly knowledgeable. Although born and raised in Canada, she might as well have been Japanese given the nuance of her understanding of the culture. Was a pleasure to be on her tour and I would recommend it to anyone who visits.
