    Had a great tour

    Yumiko took me around to see gardens and temples and taught me how to make a proper prayer there! She was super informative and I had a great time. Thanks!

    Wonderful guide and LOTS of beautiful sakura!

    Thank you to our wonderful guide!!! He did an amazing job of keeping us on schedule while taking us to some popular as well as off-beat places with less crowds to truly enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms. Our guide spoke perfect English and was helpful in taking some group pictures of us. We really appreciated that. He answered all of our questions and was very knowledgeable of the city and all of the transportation. It was relaxing to not have to worry about planning our route for the day. Overall, I would deifinately take this tour again next year. I hope we will be as lucky again to book during just the right time for full blooms. Thank you for an unforgettable day!

    Tour review

    Mr. China was a fantastic guide. I had my parents with me who are in their 70s and Mr. China was very kind and considerate, taking breaks and slowing the pace if necessary. He was also very informative on everything we saw and a pleasure to be around. Also gave us a ton of help and tips on using the subway and where to eat. We easily could've spent the entire day with him guiding us. Thank you!

    We really enjoyed a personal, private and very affordable tour with our lovely guide Yumiko. Of course the cherry blossom will always be beautiful but Yumiko knew how/when and where to go to to see it as its best. She also helped a lot with language, etiquette and culture. It was fantastic.
