Fantastic experience

Toshi was the perfect guide for my US family of 5, including 3 teenagers. His English is superb and he was very flexible. He had great recommendations and is extremely knowledgeable. Our trip to Tokyo was amazing thanks to Toshi!

Made our Trip Memorable

Toshi was such a great guide and made our trip memorable. With the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and the foreign language, it would have been a challenge to figure things out but with Toshi's help, he showed us some nice things and explained many different things we would have to figure out on our own. He was helpful, patient with my 2 young daughters, and fed us some great food! I would recommend Toshi to anyone as his English is impeccable and he's very knowledgable. Will hire again next time I am in Tokyo! Thank you Toshi for all your help.

Toshi N.

Randy Thank you for your comments. I will be glad to be your guide again. Please come back again! May be on the way to another Disney resort in Asia?

4 days with Toshi in Tokyo

Toshi worked hard on my itinerary and was adaptable to last minute changes which was wonderful Unfortunately I met a couple on our cruise which ended in Tokyo who wanted to join us touring Tokyo. It was my mistake to allow this. Toshi did his best to accommodate them. They offered me no money to pay Toshi. They turned out to be an annoyance. Once they left we all relaxed and had a wonderful time. Toshi did his best to accommodate them even though they were NOT his responsibility. I will definitely recommend Toshi to any friends traveling to Tokyo

Toshi N.

Marylin Thank you very much for your comments. It was, as you say, very difficult for both of us to accommodate people who had different spectrum of values and set of morals. But these things happen in our life. At least we managed have a good time after they left us. That was a bright side, wasn't ? If you were happy, I am happy. (PS) Let's forget about that couple. We probably will not see them and they probably will not send any messages. They are gone!
