Whole day Tokyo tour

Toshihiro San was an amazing guide for our first trip to Tokyo. He made sure we got to see all we asked him for. Not only that, he went way above and beyond finding things we wanted to eat in Tsukiji Market! My kids found him very interested and kind. We were lucky to have him as our guide. Thanks Toshihiro San!

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you for the excellent tour review, Nenu-san. I was surprised as you investigated well about the street food in Tsukiji market. You have good knowledge on Japanese traditional and modern diet. You know the value of Japanese cuisine. Not only food, but you are also interested in Japanese culture, history, architecture and life style. It was very good experience for me to learn more as a tour guide. Thank you again. You said that you will go to the western part of Japan from now. Please enjoy the rest of days during your Japan tour.

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you for the wonderful tour review, Adriana-san. I enjoyed the conversation with you during the tour. But it was very short time night tour. If possible, I would have liked to show you many exciting spots in Tokyo. I hope that you will come to Japan again in the future.

Great day in Tokyo!

We had an amazing time in Tokyo with Toshihiro-san, this tour is indeed efficient, as announced, and it wasn't too hard on our feet. It was really interesting to learn some more about the local culture. Plus, he recommended one of the best sushi we've ever eaten!

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you for the marvelous tour review, Isis-san. I am really happy as you seem to be satisfied with the tour in Tokyo. We visited various places in one day, I was afraid that you were confused by a hard schedule. I am impressed with your interests on Japan for both modern technologies and traditional cultures, and that you understand the value of sushi. You are still young. Please come to Japan again in the future.

A fabulous day

I had a great day today with Toshihiro. He was very happy to alter the agenda to accommodate me. He showed me how to efficiently navigate around the Tokyo train system. We visited the Tsukiji fish markets, parts of the Imperial Palace Gardens, Ueno Park, Harijuku and Shibuya areas. Toshihiro’s language skills are excellent and I had no trouble in understanding any of his explanations or descriptions of the places we visited. He was very knowledgeable and provided brief history lessons along the way. Toshihiro was polite and considerate and I had a very pleasant day with him.

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you very much for the quick and amazing tour review, Cheryle-san. You came to Japan several days ago. You informed me what kind of places you would like to visit today clearly. It was easy to update the itinerary. You had already travelled many countries in the world. You gave me insightful comments on Japan. I felt that I could find the unique feature of Japan more and more. It was really fruitful time for me as a tour guide. Thank you very much again. You plan to stay in Japan for more several weeks. I must appreciate your decision that you chose Japan as a destination of long vacation. You will visit various cities in Japan and go back to Australia. I wish you a pleasant voyage.
