A day with Yoshi

We had the pleasure of spending around 1 day with Yoshi. He met us at the airport and assisted us with getting to our hotel. He then met us at the time we requested the next day and took us on a day of sight seeing customised to our requests. He was very helpful and his knowledge of Tokyo was fantastic., His English is perfect which allowed us to joke and laugh as we explored the city.

Yoshi K.

I had a wonderful day with you, a fantastic couple. To tell the truth, you were the first guests I had after COVID-19. The weather was luckily so good that we could enjoy clear view of Tokyo from the top of Shibuya Sky. Next time, you should take you daughter with you, to be "fair"! Thank you again. Yoshi

Excellent day!

We had a great time with Yoshi. We subwayed and walked all over (30k steps) Tokyo. We saw so many things that we never would’ve even known to see or, if we had known, wouldn’t have known how to get to efficiently. We also learned a lot about the history of Tokyo, ate excellent sushi, and left with a plan that worked perfectly for the next day. Thank you, Yoshi!

Yoshi K.

Jennifer, I also enjoyed very much walking with you :-) It sounds like you made it to the museum, successfully. I am sure you enjoyed the tea! Have a safe trip back home. Come again, Yoshi

Absolutely Fantastic

Yoshi's tour was one of the finest travel experiences I've ever had. His knowledge and passion for Japanese culture are deep, and his ability to immerse you in the gravity of the places you are visiting is astounding. Yoshi also has an enormous amount of information about Japanese history, religion, and culture and how all three of them have shaped modern-day Japan. Do yourself a favor, and book a tour with him to really learn about Tokyo and Japan as a whole. I now have a much deeper understanding and appreciation of a culture that is radically different from my own. Thanks for a great tour, Yoshi!

Yoshi K.

Hi, Dylan, I also had a wonderful day with you, showing you around this gigantic city. I appreciated your thoughtful questions and I myself learned much from them. Next time you come to Japan, I can show you deeper world of the city. Thanks again, Yoshi

Tokyo Ghibli and Asakusa

We really wanted to go to the Studio Ghibli Museum, and since it’s so hard to get tickets, we hoped that Yoshi could. He was successful and spent 30 minutes hitting the button to purchase them! We so appreciated his effort because the museum was incredible. He also took us to different highlights we had chosen, which would have been very hard to do on our own. Since he knew how to get us to these places, we were able to see a lot more in one day. Our half day in Asakusa was rainy and cold. He gave us a tour and history of the area and then took us to some wonderful indoor activities that the kids loved! He also took us to a wonderful place for lunch and sent us off in the futuristic water bus headed for Odaiba. We were so glad he recommended that. It was a really neat experience. I am very pleased with Yoshi and would highly recommend him. Our days in Tokyo would not have been nearly as fun or stress free if we hadn’t had him there with us. Thanks, Yoshi!!!

Dear Cher, It was a wonderful day for me too, spending time with your charming family. Although it was a bit chilly day in Asakusa, I am glad that you had a good time there and enjoyed a trip to Odaiba. It is very difficult to purchase tickets for Ghibli Museum, so I appreciated you for having booked so early that I could prepare the tickets for you. Thank you, Yoshi

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.
