Very interesting and enjoyable experience. Included a perfect mixture of prepared slides and explanation to match the in-time experiences. Excellent personalization and we very much enjoyed our time.

Chihiro's tour was engaging and interactive. I liked that she personalized it for the attendees - asking us for our interest and previous experiences, and referring back to it during the tour.

This was a lovely outing. Chihiro - san is sweet, personable and very knowledgeable about Japan. I learned about Shibuya as well as a few Japanese phrases and customs. I have no doubt that when I am able to visit Japan again Chihiro - san will keep my itinerary full of the best sites to visit.

Our session was a large mixed group from all over the world and Chihiro-san was able to interact with everybody throughout. Although I have been to Shibuya before, I learned a lot from this session, including places that just opened this year, as well as the current situation with the pandemic. The live viewing of Shibuya crossing was a bonus, like a Christmas present! The virtual trip near the end of the session to the cat temple was very cute and tied the whole story together.

I did the online tour with my husband and my friends. We had a lovely time with Chihiro-san and the other guests. Even though we had already been to Shibuya in person in the past, it was fun to learn more about Shibuya, like the origin of the name and a couple of new places we had not heard of. Chihiro-san also had recommendations for places to go and restaurants to eat at. Thank you Chihiro-san!

A charming experience. We joined Chihiro-san on Christmas day and what a great way to start a festive day! We have been to Japan a few times but we've learnt even more here about Shibuya and culture of Japan. No hesitation to recommend Chihiro's experience.
