Milagrosa from Spain

October 2014
Route : Imperial Palace – Tokyo International Forum –
Ginza – Kabukiza Theater
Guide : Yoshiko Honda

Estimados señores:

Somos un grupo de 4 españoles que tuvimos la suerte de haber
contado en nuestra visita a Tokio con la ayuda desinteresada de la
señora Yoshico Honda, de la organización de guías gratuitas.

Gracias a ella conocimos sitios maravillosos, nos dio confianza para
el resto de los días ir por nuestra cuenta en el metro, a lo que no nos
hubiésemos atrevido, conocimos algo más que el sushi de la comida
japonesa y sobre todo, vimos lo amable y considerados que son los
japoneses y lo que para nosotros era muy importante, todo ello en
nuestro idioma.

Queremos dejar constancia de la gran labor que están desarrollando
personas como ella.

Kris from Belgium

November 2014
Route : Asakusa – Ootori Shrine (Tori-no-ichi festival)
Guide : Hiroko Ota

For my first visit ever to Tokyo I reserved a guide at Tokyo Free Guide
to show me around Asakusa. They assigned Hiroko Ota to me and
that turned out perfect!

Hiroko gave me a lot of information via mail before I even left for Japan.
Once I was in Tokyo, she met me at my hotel at the agreed time and
then took me to Asakusa. She not only guided me around but also gave
me a lot of background information. She showed me a nice vantage point
from the tourist office just across the street at the entrance of Senso-ji.

Afterwards we went to a festival that took place that day (something
only a well informed guide would know): a very nice submersion in local
culture. Afterwards we went to a local restaurant where we had a good
meal and talked some more about Tokyo and Japan.

During the week of my stay she helped me out to find vegetarian onigiri
(Japanese rice ball) and get medicine for my eye.

Thanks Hiroko!

Miriam from Spain – Day 1

Guide : Kazumi Suzuki

Hola Kazumi! ¿Cómo estás?

Queríamos agradecerte el gran día que pasamos visitando
Tokyo contigo.

Hicimos un tour super completo, no me imaginé antes de llegar
que se podían ver tantas cosas en un solo día, jejeje. Es una gran
experiencia conocer un país como el tuyo de manos de la propia gente.

Gracias a TFG por darnos la oportunidad de conocer personas
japonesas que hablen nuestro idioma, porque eso es maravilloso
para los que nos gusta vuestro país.

Muchas gracias Kazumi.

Te esperamos en España,

Un abrazo fuerte.

Claudia from Sweden

October 2014
Route : Shinjuku (Tokyo Metropolitan Govenment
Office Building – Omoide-yokocho)
Guide : Kiyotoshi Ohta

Junto a mi hermano, visitamos Tokyo por primera vez y sin saber
mucho por donde empezar, decidimos solicitar los servicio de
Tokyo Free Guide. Sin duda fue una excelente opción.

¡Agradecemos enormemente a Kiyotoshi Ota, un gran guía!
Que con su simpatía, amabilidad y cordialidad nos dejó un
lindo recuerdo de Tokyo.

¡Muchas gracias y volveremos pronto a esta linda ciudad!

Jesse from USA

September 2014
Route : Ueno (National Museum, lunch)
Guide : Yoshiko Manabe

Outstanding Volunteer

Today we had the good fortune to have had Yoshiko Manabe assigned
to us as a guide. Mrs. Manabe’s performed her duties in a manner
that clearly exceeded that which would be expected in a volunteer guide.

She pushed my invalid wife in a wheelchair throughout the many galleries
of the National Museum as well as assisting me with my problems.

After visiting the museum she took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant
where she explained and assisted us with the intricacies (to a Westerner)
of Japanese dining. Later, upon learning of my wife’s need for some
personal items she took my wife to a store to procure them. All of this
was done while considering my wife’s difficulty walking.

Mrs. Manabe could not have been more helpful or cheerful during her time
with us. We shall long remember our experience with her and be grateful
for it. Your organization, by its nature, is filled with altruistic volunteers.

Mrs. Manabe epitomizes this and she reflects great credit upon
Tokyo Free Guide as well as herself.

Paul from UK

September 2014
Route : Kishimojin-Temple – Waseda University – Chinzan-so Garden -
St. Mary’s Cathedral – Shinjuku
Guide : Marie Horiuchi

Thank you so much to Tokyo Free Guide and Marie Horiuchi.

My trip to Japan in September was one of the best experiences of
my life and my day with Marie in Tokyo played a big part in that.

Marie showed me around for three hours which was especially
kind given that she was pregnant. She brought me to places that
I never would have seen otherwise and we had a lovely tempura lunch
in a fantastic (and cheap!) kappo style restaurant.

Tokyo Free Guide is a fantastic organisation and I wouldn’t hesitate to
recommend it to others – in fact, I have already done so!

Sonny from Australia

September 2014
Route : Day 1 Roppongi – Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office Building -
Day 2 Shibuya – Okachimachi
Guide : Mitsuyo Fujiwara 

I just wanted to say thank you to my guide Mitsuyo Fujiwara
who took me and my friend on a tour around Tokyo. We visited
all the places that we asked to see and had a great time.

I got to buy some cheap shirts and see an awesome city.
Mitsuyo was kind,knowledgeable and very patient with this less
than smart gaijin.

We appreciated her good humour and she made our trip a memory
to last a lifetime.
