    I met my guide at the designated meeting place near the station. She was early so we had extra time to get acquainted. I was the only on the tour so Kazumi was very flexible to my interests.

She was prepared with literature, graphics and pictures. We had fantastic treats - exceptional quality of ingredients. I recommend this tour with Kazumi.

What a nice way to start the day! We had a very interesting morning learning about Tsukiji market, Japanese history and food culture. It's a good way to have a feel of the market and the stalls without being completely clueless in a sea of options. Our guide, Akiko, was very sweet and tried her very best to answer our questions and explain about the different food and places we visited. She was definitely a highlight of the tour and made us feel very welcome in Japan. Sometimes our guide's English language knowledge wasn't enough to answer all our questions but she made the biggest effort to help.

My private tour trough Tokio was just awesome. Together with my guide Yoshi we explored Tsujiki Fish Market, Meiji Shrine and also some local shops. She gave me so many insights about Japan, the culture and daily life that it felt like exploring the city with a friend. Great day. Great memories. Thanks for this experience!!!

Kazumi, our guide, helped make our food tour of the markets a most amazing experience. She has a bright friendly personality, spoke English which was easy to understand and was happy to answer our questions with her wealth of local knowledge. Arigato Kazuni.

Thanks to Toshi-san. He gave us a lot of interresting information about the market during the tour. Arigato gozaimasu!
