Great first day in Tokyo privat tour with Mutoh

It is our first time in Japan. We are family of four, sons are almost aduts. Mutoh helped us a lot to get the first feeling of Tokyo. It was an excellent start of our jurney through Japan. He explained to us metro sistem, how to go around without stress. We visited Tsukiji market, Senso-ji shrine, Meiji Jingu shrine, took us to Kappabashi street to buy knifes and to delicious ramen for lunch when we were hungry. He was very kind and had a lot of understanding for our needs and wishes. It was a great day. I would recommend Mutoh to everybody. Thank you. Hvala. (in our language)

Karmen F.

Karmen-san, Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm more than happy if you and your beautiful families enjoyed your first day in Tokyo. It's a lot of pleasure for me to tour with happy family and I enjoyed it as well. And I hope you enjoy rest of your stay in Japan, hopefully it will be not so hot, and your challenge of climbing Mt.Fuji will compete safely! Thank you again for joining my tour. ARIGATOU GOZAIMASHTA!
