Really nice, peaceful experience. I did a lot of research before going to an owl cafe as I was concerned for the animals' welfare. This owl "cafe" clearly prioritised the owls while still making the experience enjoyable for the humans as well! Not that there's no food or drink but the experience is WELL worth it if you can get in (make sure to book in advance). Loved it!

Our guide Naoko was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and accommodated our requests for specific things and areas to see. She navigated the metro for us and moved fast so we saw a lot. She is very passionate about her job and it shows. She even looked after our two boys ages 10 & 7 when crossing a street and in crowded areas. We have a friend for life!

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!!!
