Yoshihisa put together a tailor made itinerary which worked perfectly incorporating the highlights of Tokyo. We communicated well, exchanging ideas and information all in a very prompt and timely manner given the time difference. Yoshihisa is well travelled, charming and informative, l wouldn't hesitate to book him again or recommend.
Thank you Linda for your generous words. It was really an exciting moment that I traveled with you in Tokyo. Your enthusiasm of knowing about this city and country encouraged me a lot and made me feel rewarded when we finished our tour. Though we have covered a good part of the city, there are a lot more to dig into, so I trully look forward to seeing you again and share this great moment again with you. Yoshihisa
The weather is cold and its raining, but this guy never stops showing us the views of Narita. It was almost 7pm when the tour was over, we’re about to leave Japan at the departure lobby when i found out that my bag is missing and realized i forgot the bag in the restaurant where we eat ramen. Yoshihisa is the first person entered into my mind to ask for help. He answered quickly without hesitation, he took the train, went back to the restaurant and brought my missing bag within 30min. I dont know how i will thank this guy that time. It’s our first time in Japan with a good guide, very professional, he got knowledge, speaks very calm and friendly, Its unforgettable. I highly recommend Yoshihisa for those who wanted to visit Japan, you can’t go wrong. Thank you so much Mister Yoshihisa, I hope we will see each other again my guide, and my friend. Ronel
Thank you Ronel for having stopt over to Narita despite your tight Schedule and also for your generous words. The weather was wet and cold, but was warm in my heart. From the moment that we met at the gate, I didn't feel like we met for the first time. I was glad that you enjoyed every feature of the temple, the gate, the insence burner, the tower, the front market etc. Yes, the incident at the end was a bit surprise, but even pleasant. It even added a good memory of our friendship. Now I can't believe that it was such a short period of time that we were together. You stay always in my heart with a good memory of an evening in Narita, and I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you . Yoshihisa
I had Yoshihisa meet my family of 9 at the airport and get us to our accomodation in Shinagawa. He helped us get our train tickets, suica card and even hire a mobile phone. Fantastic commmunication. Highly recommend.
Thank you Serena for your generous comment. It was really a fun for me too to be with a family like yours. I hope you all had great time in Japan. Though it was unfortunate that we missed an Opportunity to spend a full day traveling in Tokyo because of the volcanic eruption in the Philippines, I am hoping that we have another Opportunity to meet and spend great time together like we did this time. Wishing all the best to you and your family, Yoshihisa
Thanks Yoshihisa for all your help!
