Excellent walking tour of Tokyo!

We had a wonderful day touring Tokyo with Yoshi. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious. He was very informative and very keen to curate the tour to our preferences. He showed us the well-known areas and also several hidden gems off the beaten path. We highly recommend Yoshi!!

Yoshi K.

Thank you for your wonderful review. I am hoping that you will find the golden bottle somewhere!

A day with Yoshi

We had the pleasure of spending around 1 day with Yoshi. He met us at the airport and assisted us with getting to our hotel. He then met us at the time we requested the next day and took us on a day of sight seeing customised to our requests. He was very helpful and his knowledge of Tokyo was fantastic., His English is perfect which allowed us to joke and laugh as we explored the city.

Yoshi K.

I had a wonderful day with you, a fantastic couple. To tell the truth, you were the first guests I had after COVID-19. The weather was luckily so good that we could enjoy clear view of Tokyo from the top of Shibuya Sky. Next time, you should take you daughter with you, to be "fair"! Thank you again. Yoshi

Excellent day!

We had a great time with Yoshi. We subwayed and walked all over (30k steps) Tokyo. We saw so many things that we never would’ve even known to see or, if we had known, wouldn’t have known how to get to efficiently. We also learned a lot about the history of Tokyo, ate excellent sushi, and left with a plan that worked perfectly for the next day. Thank you, Yoshi!

Yoshi K.

Jennifer, I also enjoyed very much walking with you :-) It sounds like you made it to the museum, successfully. I am sure you enjoyed the tea! Have a safe trip back home. Come again, Yoshi

Akihabara Walking Tour

Tokyo

Akihabara is Japan's largest electric appliance shopping district in Tokyo. At the same time this town is the Center of Nerd/Geek Culter, or Otaku in Japanese. You will enjoy walking the town and seeing a variety of Otaku culture shops such as manga comics, animated films, figurines and capsule toys. There are many maid cafes where the waitresses are dressed in maid costumes. I am sure you enjoy!
