My first virtual tour. Noriko provided a very satisfying cherry blossom experience in Tokyo, even though it is the end of the "season." I had nothing to compare with, but feel she handled random questions/comments gracefully, and kept the pace moving, to cover her planned tour. Might have appreciated a bit more walking, but understand the limitations of this particular subject matter.
