Great Experience

We booked 3 days with Toshi and he was great! He knows the Tokyo area VERY well and his preparation made everything amazing. Even as we walked and asked questions be knew about everything and his english as great. We had a diverse group and he remained flexible and made adjustments for us. THANK YOU for your preparation and knowledge! Make sure if you are going to Tokyo to book time with Toshi as he will make sure everything goes perfectly.

Thank you for the marvelous tour review Alba-san. You were a group of six people. Everyone had a unique and attractive personality. In my experience, I often encountered difficulties to guide such a big group consisted of various individuals. But Alba-san coordinated your group well. I could do a tour smoothly owing to your assistance. Thank you very much! I know you are a very busy person. I would like to show you beautiful cherry blossoms for relaxation. I recommend that you come to Japan again in late March next time.

Super nice tour guide!

Toshihiro is super nice and welcoming ! He was able to show us around Tokyo for 3 days. He took us to the best spots in Tokyo! He is super organized and knows his way around Tokyo. He also knows other languages ! We were able to visit the Pokemon Cafe, a Maid Cafe, and ride around in Go Karts in Shibuya! He also knew the best spots to buy souvenirs. 10/10 would recommend ! He also put together a great itinerary for us.

Thank you for the wonderful tour review Meny-san. You are very familiar with Japanese animation. Honestly speaking, I was a little bit confused for creating an itinerary to satisfy various your requests. But you were cooperative and we could visit all places you wished. It was first time for me to visit Pokemon Cafe and Maid Cafe. I truly enjoyed these places. It was important experience for me. You were in Tokyo for three days, but only one full day for sightseeing. Tokyo has many other exciting spots. Please come to Japan again in near future.

A Short and Sweet Tokyo Experience

Toshihiro is a sweet person. There was a language barrier but with some patience, we were able to enjoy a night walk through Shinjuku Omoide Yokocho and early morning walk to Meiji Jingu/Shrine, where we enjoyed a beautiful Shinto experience. We were supposed to go to Tokyo Tower but it was overcast, so we changed plans. Toshihiro also helped us save money by taking the subway, which was intense to navigate and we were glad to have his help. Thank you Toshihiro!

Thank you for the good tour review Edith-san. You and Adam-san were the first tourists for me after Japan resumed accepting overseas tourists. It was two and a half years since I did a tour guide before. You are the memorial customers for me. It was a real layover that you were in Tokyo. Soon after the arrival, you visited a night area in Shinjuku. Next day in early morning, you visited Meiji Jingu/Shrine and took your departure. I appreciate your enthusiastic attitude for the sightseeing in spite of the hard schedule among long flights. Tokyo and other cities in Japan have many exciting spots. Please come to Japan again for at least two weeks.

Highly recommended

Toshihiro is very responsive. I was hesitant to book our tour with him at first as it is my first time doing it online, however, Toshihiro is very responsive. He is always there and answers all my queries clearly and he replied very quick. He knows his stuff and he is a very kind gentleman. Highly recommended tourist guide.

Thank you for the excellent tour review Noemi-san. You chose Tokyo as a destination of your summer tour in spite that there are still little overseas tourists in Japan. You investigated well regarding what you would like to do and which places you would like to visit. I enjoyed not only walking around various places with you but also talking about various topics with you. I have an impression that you are a successful business woman. I hope that you will come to Tokyo again in near future.
