Tokyo is now one of the largest metropolitan city. But long time ago it was a tiny fishermen's village. Let's explore the history of Tokyo from 7th century when it was a tiny village to the present day. That means we will go through 1400 years history in only one day. Tokyo history express will start soon upon your request!!.

We will use metro subway basically. Unfortunately some of metro stations are less friendly to the wheelchair and the stroller. If you use those, we may have to adjust our schedule by cutting one or two spots to finish our tour as scheduled.
Mack is an excellent guide. His English is very good (completed his graduate degree in the US). He helped us find some fun things to experience in Tokyo.
Thank you Jim san. Although we had rainy weather, I think we had good times thanks to your cooperation. I hope to see you again.
We could not have seen half of the areas without Mack. He was so well prepared for our day and also flexible with us. He managed the train route and stops so well. We would have been lost without him. Thank you so, so much Mack! Wish you were with for two more days. We would know Tokyo so much better with you! Val & Keith, Canada
Dear Keith san and Val san. Thank you for choosing me as your guide for your precious day in Tokyo. I did my best and I am happy to know you enjoyed the day. Japan has four seasons and each season has its own beauty. I hope I can help you again to explore another beauty next time. Please enjoy the rest of your trip. Mack
Mack was very organized prior to our arrival in Tokyo. He corresponded quickly and was not only able to plan our itinerary but make restaurant recommendations and bookings for a big party. On the day of, he was on time. He knew the subway system well and the details of each site. We were the very first to request a visit to a hedgehog cafe which he researched and arranged for us to go to without a hitch. He was accommodating and helped us (a large group of 8) through Tokyo which seems a relatively hard thing to do in such a busy city. Thanks Mack for always making sure we were always well taken care of.
Dear Audrey San. Thank you for having me as your guide and giving me such many good words for me. I am very glad to know you enjoyed our tour in Tokyo. I am also very happy to have your family and friends. It was very good experience for me. I hope I can see you again. Best regards, Mack
Mack is one of the most amazing guides I have ever had the pleasure of being escorted by on a tour. He worked around all my mental and physical issues to ensure we cover as much as possible on our trip. I was so amazed and truly touched when he sent me a postcard with the Yayoi Kusama Museum when I was in Kyoto. I was really wanting to see the museum but they had no availability so he sent me a postcard and a table cover with the museum on it. Thank you Mack for making my trip to Tokyo so completely memorable!
Dear Anupa San Thank you for your kind words for me. I did my best and I am glad to hear you enjoyed our tour. This time we had limited time. I hope you visit gain to explore our culture further. Please take care. Best regards, Mack
