\-- Review from our guest --
Timo is a very nice person, cheerful and attentive. She even learnt my language before meeting me. She helped me a lot and gave me all information needed for a tourist. Definitely recommended!
Regular tour guides in Japan maintain strict professionalism with their clients, which many tourists find cold or off-putting.
With a regular tour guide, tourists can expect to see commonplace sights they would find in a guidebook.
Hiring a regular tour guide costs a significant amount of money. Abundant knowledge and experiences leads expensive fee.
Regular tours are usually fixed plans, developed without client input, that do not allow for much flexibility.
TOMODACHI GUIDE are enthusiastic, English-speaking college students who relate to clients in an engaging manner. Also, students knows how local people enjoy their home cities and provide great hospitality.

There are plenty of advantages to be had from traveling together with your guides to the places they suggest. They can support you on your trip, tailoring the plan to factors such as the public transport conditions and the weather on the day. And if at any point you decide that you want to make changes to the plan, they can help you to do exactly what it is you feel like doing!

If you trust the guide you have been messaging, why not try booking them as a guide so that they can make a unique tour just for you? Our local guides can recommend places that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to go, such as places they often visit with their friends, and locally popular restaurants that don’t offer any English, as well as well-known tourist hotspots. They will consider factors such as shortcuts and train lines, and carefully make a plan that you can enjoy to the fullest in the limited time of your trip. Of course, you can also book a pre-existing tour plan, or make adjustments to a pre-existing plan.
