Amazing guide and a great experience in Japan

Koji was fantastic. We had our 4 year old daughter with us and we had a long list of things we wanted to do in a short time and he was great about keeping us on track and changing the plan at a moments notice to make sure we got to do as much as possible. He took us to one restaurant that we would have never found on our own that was the best experience of the whole trip because of how authentic it was. We are already planning our trip back and we will absolutely use Koji again!!

Hi Richard, thank you for your support all the time to make our unforgettable and authentic trip possible! I can't wait reproducing "Ichigo-Ichie" moments with you, Vanessa and Layla as time passes! Koji

Off Season Mt. Fuji!

An amazing trip to Tokyo and the Mt. Fuji region. We could not ask for a better guide and will definitely look to book Koji again!

Hi Steven, I'm glad that I could share truly enjoyable, memorable and lifelong experiences with you and Eric. I'm pleased to know you enjoyed it too! Hope to see you soon in Japan to have a great time again:) Thank you, Koji

Wonderful personalized tour!

I had a wonderful time with my guide, Koji :) He was accommodating, flexible and open-minded, which I greatly appreciated. Most importantly, he let me choose my own itinerary, unlike other guides or tour companies that have a fixed route. He was also knowledgeable about the places we visited and was easy to talk to. I was able to accomplish most of my goals in the short 48 hours that I was in Japan. When I bring my aunt and uncle with me (maybe next spring), I’d like Koji to guide us around, too. 機会があればまたよろしくお願いしますね?

Koji K.

Hi Arlaine, It was my utter pleasure serving you as a guide when hiring a guide is required to enter Japan. Nothing made me happier than knowing I could guide you all of the listed places and activities, one of which was your main reason to visit Japan this time, without problems! Thank you for taking time for writing a positive review and I'm looking forward to seeing you and guiding your family members soon???? Koji

In the midst of the ongoing COVID drama sweeping the world, my partner and I decided to continue on with our trip to Japan. We were a bit nervous and wary but ended up having an incredible, once in a lifetime trip and a large part of this was our time with Koji. Koji has youth and energy, knowledge about Japanese culture, food and life, and was a wonderful host during our stay in Tokyo. We felt like we were with someone who knew the city and the people, was able to help us get from points A to B to C and help expose us to things we would have never seen without a great guide.

Hi Jeff, I'm glad that you chose to come to Japan in this difficult time of the novel coronavirus outbreak throughout the world. It felt surreal that every place in Tokyo was totally different from what it used to be, but that was what our tour on the 2 days truly unique and memorable. Thank you for everything and I'm looking forward to seeing both of you again? Koji

Tokyo Up-to-You Tour

8 hours

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.
