    We were able to know a lot about japans culture. The kids enjoyed the trip though they were complaining that they were tired but overall I would highly recommend to get Makoto as your tour guide!!!

    MH was an excellent guide on our first day in Tokyo - and Japan.  Straightway he introduced us to the JR and Tokyo systems - esential for the whole of our visit, took us for a good meal and then to some of the sights of the city.  MH's humour and interest in what we wanted to find out during our visit, as well as his knowledge of Tokyo and its history, impressed us.  We wqere very pleased to have had him as our guide.
