I have been guided by Takashi around Tokyo and Akiba for a short but very interesting trip during my lay-over time during the fight to my hometome. He was an excellent guide, very humble with very influential English speaking. I will definitely come back for another longer trip, there are still so many ppaces i wish to visit. I just love Japan!
Dear Quy san Thank you very much for choosing my private tour and it was very fun to dig in Akihabara together. Not only visiting a maid cafe but also we visited Sushi shop operated by women chef. I am also happy that we could find great gifts for your family and friends during the tour. Please come back to Japan for your vacation next time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market and Asakusa area with Takashi as our guide. His knowledge of Japanese culture and history, along with his excellent ability to communicate in English, allowed our multigenerational group to maximize our time in Tokyo. He guided us through busy streets and patiently explained about the various sights, foods and products along the way. We were able to experience and understand so much more of the culture as a result of our time with Takashi in Tokyo. Thank you!
We are a family of four, with two kids aged 13 and 12. Takashi met us at our hotel in Ginza, got us started with Pasmo cards to use for train tickets, and guided us for most of a day. He took us first to the Meiji Jingu temple and showed us how to pass through each of the temple gates with appropriate respect (stop and bow at each gate), how to use the water ladles for purification before entering the main temple, and explained the locals use the various parts of the temple. At nearby Takeshita Street in Harajuku, our kids were fascinated with the colours, the costumes, and the photo booths. Lunch at the Kawaii monster cafe was a highlight. Takashi was patient with us and gave us excellent explanations in answer to all our questions.
Hello! It was great to see you and your family. And thank you very much for your sweet gifts from New Zealand! Harajuku area is one of the unique area in Japan. It was nice to try photo booth (we call Print club) as Japanese girls in Harajuku. And we enjoyed time at the Kawaii monster cafe a lot. They just started Halloween decoration for foods and the food decoration was amazing. Please come back to Japan for your vacation. I would like to recommend to visit other cities Osaka & Kyoto next time. It is different from Tokyo and you will find different food, culture and people!
We met our tour guide Tak at the metro station in Harajuku, and from the get go, he was amazing and very friendly. His knowledge on all the different locations and the history of all of Tokyowas impressive. To Tak, thanks for taking your time with us and answering all the questions we asked and making it look a day our with friends and not tourists.
Dear Mr. Tom It was great to see you and I ‘m happy because you enjoy time yesterday. Please enjoy your stay in Japan! And please be careful of big typhoon hitting Japan in the coming weekend. Will let you know any emergency.
