Dear Gwinevere Thank you very much for joining our tour and for this very useful comment. We will surely tell Haruki-san and Rio-san and we will work on improving the Sumida River part of the tour. Only thanks to the great customers like you, we can make our tours even better. For the other customers, there is not much we can do unless they really violate the tour rules, but an introduction e-mail or basic explanation from the guide at the beginning of tour seems to be a good idea. Thank you very much again for this suggestion. We will be happy to welcome you in Tokyo again next time. Sincerely Areshu
