Tokyo in 2 days!

Junichi was helpful in taking our family of 6 around Tokyo. We’ve kids as young as 5, and grandparents as old as 70! He was accommodative to plan around what we wanted to see, and gave us good tips around the most effective walking routes around Tokyo (and saved us steps!). My kids enjoyed having him around, and he brought along pictures for illustrations. He’s certainly very knowledgeable about Tokyo!

Great guide to know Tokyo top places w/ context.

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

A Well Prepared Tour Guide

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.
