Rika did an absolutely incredible job of finding out the interests of 7 people in our family group and incorporating this into our 15day holiday in magnificent Japan. I don't think a week goes by when someone doesn't say "I miss Japan" or "lets go back to Japan" Thank you Rika for the most memorable family holiday, directing us to wonderful restaurants, awesome history and adventures. Nothing was too much trouble for Rika, what a brilliant service you offer. We'll be back, I just know it😁

Having someone who really knows Japan craft a personal trip that's just right for you is a perfect way to explore Japan. She considers the ‘us’ in every aspect of planning our adventure.  Nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend Rika and her boutique tour agenda. It is great if travelling as a group. Lots of extra details you won't find on your own. Rika really listens and is a pleasure to work with. We will definitely ask her help again. .

I've just gotten back from a magical Japan trip that Kuroko Boutique Tours created for us. Rika actively sought out our wishes and preferences before the trip and where possible, built them in. The trip was professionally put together and we had no stress of planning and arranging the bookings. It was smooth and faultless from the start to the end. What an exceptional service! From now on when I think of a trip to Japan I will get Kuroko Boutique Tours doubt about that
