Fantastic experience with Toshihiro

My two sons and myself spent a marvelous day in Tokyo with Toshihiro. He is an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable about the city, the history of Japan and amazing knowledge of the city's transport system. He was very accommodating in the things we wanted to do (including a certain type of meal my son was very interested in) and also in the places we wanted to visit. I would recommend him anytime. Thank you very much, Toshihiro!!!

Dear Enrique-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. We visited popular tourist destinations and places your acquaintance had recommended in Tokyo. You know Japanese culture and differences from western countries well. You and your two sons have a good skill of using chopsticks, and know Japanese style of eating noodles. It was an exciting time for me to do a guide for your family. I enjoyed conversation with you especially Mexican sports and food. It was also wonderful experience for me. Thank you very much again!. Best regards, Toshihiro

Dear Aparna-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. We visited various spots in Tokyo. Many flowers and blooms were very beautiful in Ueno park. It was my first time to go inside the peonies garden. I also enjoyed with you. It was an important experience for me. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro

Thank you Toshihiro-san!

We chose to book the one day Tokyo tour with Toshihiro. Our tour was excellent and we saw so many areas of Tokyo that we probably would’ve missed on our own. Toshihiro was an excellent tour guide and he gave us a great understanding of Japanese culture. We loved the sushi restaurant he brought us to for lunch. I highly recommend booking a tour with Toshihiro.

Dear Tara-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. Fortunately it was clear sky on the day of the tour. The day before the tour, you went to the Sky Tree Tower by yourself and watched the outline of Tokyo from high altitude area. It made me easier to explain the characteristics feature of Tokyo. You had very intellectual curiosity especially on Japanese culture and religion. I was not sure whether my explanation satisfied you or not. I am now relieved by reading your review as you were given a great understanding of Japanese culture. I think you visited only Tokyo area this time. There are various unique areas around the country. Please come to Japan again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro

Excellent tour with Yoshihiro.

Our group had the most fun and insightful time with Yoshihiro as out guide. He was also very compassionate and empathetic of our needs as tourists and was open to all our recommendations throughout. He also provided recommendations that enhanced our tour of Tokyo. Thank you very much, Toshihiro for being an excellent guide!

Dear Andrew-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. I enjoyed visiting various places in Tokyo with your group for two days. You like animals, nature and animation. You had already visited several local places in Japan, and showed me wonderful photographs. You ate Sushi in Tsukiji and drank Sake in Izakaya to be more familiar with Japanese culture. I esteem your attitude. It was also important experience for me. You and members of your group are still young. Please come to Japan again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
