Amazing guide and amazing day!

Kenji is so accomodating and down to earth! So easy to talk to and has the inside knowledge. Tailored our tour to what we wanted and gave us multiple options. Honestly the best idea to hire him and will do so the next time we are in Japan again! Thank you so much Kenji for a amazing day!!

One night transit tour around Tokyo area

We are happy for our choice to go around with Kenji in Tokyo transit tour. From Haneda airport to Ueno hotel, Centurion Hotel to sightseeing around Asakusa, kenji planned everything smoothly within a short tour. We will never forget our experience with Kenji and hoping to see him on specific Japan tour in near future. We strongly recommend Kenji as a very knowledgeable guide.

You are missing out if you don’t book this guide!

Wow! Kenji was an amazing guide. Our day in Tokyo was perfect, thanks to him. (We literally would have been lost without him.) He met us at our hotel and planned every detail needed for our day. He not only accommodated our special request of visiting the new Nintendo store for our boys, he obviously had done some reconnaissance work ahead of time to know exactly what to expect. He took many family pictures for us, had insightful information, and was great at conversational English. (He had lived in California for a few years.) We requested to end the tour in a shopping district instead of our hotel, and he even had detailed maps to instruct us on how to get back. We truly can’t say enough good things about Kenji. We feel like we have a new friend in Japan.

Hi, Diana Thank you for your review. It rained a little in the evening yesterday, I am wondering whether you could successfuly see the Christmas illuminations in the Shibuya area. I am very pleased that your Family has had a fun day in Tokyo. Please enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan and south-east Asia by cruising. If you have a chance to come to Japan, please contact me again. I look forward to seeing you again. I hope that your family will be able to travel happily until you safely get home. Best regards, Kenji Kasama
