Sachiko went above and beyond to ensure an experience that exceeded my expectations — despite me booking last minute, she was able to arrange for the tour date that worked for my schedule, as well as design an itinerary that took us around Tokyo, seeing everything I wanted and more. I shared with her my love of architecture and she seamlessly wove in details about the different features and designers of buildings, shrines and places we visited. I will be hiring her again next time I'm back! No doubt.
