Amazing Experience with Shiny

Took a customized tour with Shinya which included the imperial palace, senjoi temple (during the festival)and Akihabara. Shinya was incredibly organized and knowledgeable, answering every question that was asked (and we had a lot) and was incredibly attuned to all of needs. He showed incredible flexibility as the plan was changed mid way especially in Akihabara where everyone was expressing different interest. Would highly highly recommend...

A Most Delightful Experience

Shinya has a wonderful itinerary and an extremely personable manner.

It was a well balanced and interesting tour that anyone interested in the built environment would enjoy. Thank you Shinya!
