We had the best day with Toshihiro!

We had a fantastic tour with Toshihiro! He did a wonderful job of showing us so many beautiful places and teaching us the history and making the tour family-friendly. His English is fantastic. We toured with him our first day in Japan and it was such a perfect way to start our trip. Thank you so much for such a great day! We hope to come back and visit again soon!

Shayna B.

Thank you for the brilliant tour review, Shayna-san. Your family are nice and friendly with teenagers and a kid. I was really happy to introduce Japanese history and culture to the family like yours. Tour was done just after you arrived. I guess that you were very tired because of jet lag. But you walked the city for miles round. Please come to Japan again in the near future.

Recommend this tour to everyone visiting Japan

My boyfriend and I booked this tour at the end of our trip so that we could get a "quick" tourist overview of the city but wish we would have booked towards the beginning because Toshihiro had so many recommendations and was so helpful navigating the city. I requested that we see some historical sights and Toshihiro was very prepared and knowledgable about the history of Japan and we were able to see so much in one day. We went to several places and at the last minute at the end changed the itinerary to see the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame which was a major highlight for my sports loving boyfriend and Toshihiro's first time there. We also went to the fish market and we went to an amazing sushi restaurant that we probably would have passed by on our own. Another benefit of booking this tour was to have someone be able to take pictures for us without always having to ask the crowd and we got some awesome pictures to keep for the memories. I would rate this tour 10/10 and tell everyone that visits Toyko to book this tour! Thank you Toshihiro-san Sarah & Adam (NYC, Tampa)

Thank you for the outstanding tour review with nice photos, Sarah-san. You had showed me your interests clearly. That's why it was easy to change the itinerary for you. You understood uniqueness of Japanese culture and history. You also understood modern aspects of Tokyo. I was surprised that your boyfriend really knows Japanese baseball. Many excellent Japanese baseball athletes are now playing in US major league. I am a little bit disappointed with current situation of Japanese baseball league. But your boyfriend understood importance of Japanese baseball league. He purchased a lot of baseball goods which are sold only in the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame. I enjoyed visiting this holy place for baseball fan. And you were interested in Japanese food culture. I also enjoyed eating sushi with you. I am relived that two pictures I took for you at Shibuya crossing and Asakusa Kaminarimon gate are much nicer than I expected. You are like Hollywood movie stars. I enjoyed everything in this tour. This tour was your first visit to Japan. You are still young. Please come to Japan again in the near future.
