Simon W.

Thank you very much for your review comment. I feel very sad that I could be with you for the first two days only. Your stay in Tokyo was "too" calm because of Covid-19. It was lucky that your symptom was just moderate and fortunately, I was not infected. You have to visit Tokyo again soon for the two days you missed to be with me. I'll wait for such days to prepare some exciting experiences for you. Thank you again.

Shibuya April 2023

It was our first day and first time in Japan. We wanted help with the subways, visiting our first restaurant, etiquette for visiting our first Temple and a tour of Shinjuko. We asked “Yama-San” to do that and he created a tour to match our request. Great day!

Brad J.

Thank you for your comment. The day was a great day for me being with you, three beautiful couples. I could feel your love throughout the tour. Hoping to see you again, Yama.
