He knows the history, the places and includes my suggestions without stress and gave us good tips. He is super patient (my 2 daughters tested it while in a few places he recommended), knows how to move around fast. Thank you Junichi
We were so glad to have Junichi as our tour guide. He took us to Mount Fuji and kept his personal notes on train and boat schedules. He made sure all of our family members were together, periodically turning back to look that all of us are behind him as he led us through train stations to get to our destination. The coolest part of the entire tour was Mount Fuji and her majesty and splendor as well as taking the bullet train back to Tokyo. Junichi is very fluent in English and I would highly recommend him as your tour guide should you be in the Tokyo and looking for a tour guide.
We were two families meeting up with Junichi from different parts of the world, and on a very rainy day, Junichi was dependable and very attentive. He was very good about making sure that we were all staying together and showing us where we wanted to go. He was very polite and courteous, and we were able to communicate effectively with him, as his English is quite good. Thank you, Junichi-san, we enjoyed our tour of Tokyo!
Junichi is a very patient tour guide. This is our first family trip to Japan. Before we came, we do not know is there any other way to go to our accomodation from the airport. Junichi took the time to go down airport and check for us. Then on the day he met us, our twins were cranky and he was very very patient with us. We took a longer time to walk to each destination and he waited for us and made sure he did not leave anyone behind. Thank you so much. Highly recommended!
