Not only is Toru very knowledgeable in his trade but also has a sense of humour second to none which made our day with him around Tokyo an even more memorable one.
Dear Michael, Thank you very much for your review with rather too many nice things about: I wish you had spared my blushes. Please say my sincere appreciation to ladies and your friend. Toru
So 3 full days in Tokyo. What do you do? You could finagle through a Fodors guide and do it yourself. That’s a lot of work. Or you could get yourself a guide. Having help in Japan is a must. It was key navigating around, conversing for informational purposes and moreover having a local guide show you the beauty that is Tokyo. We did so much on Sunday with my brother here too for that day. It culminated in Karaoke Can as we were retracing the movie Lost in Translation. Toru navigated us through Japanese Anime, The Harajuku district and then onto Karoke Can where we all had so much fun. The next day solo with Toru, we went to Sky Tower, Pokémon Store, A sumo demonstration with lunch that he dropped me off and picked me up from and then onto the Samurai museum which was amazing. Today we go to the Edo museum. Toru is very caring and thoughtful. He was open to spontaneous ideas. His translation skills were so helpful. A total gentleman and a great guide. Thank you Toru.
Toru provided our group with a wonderful sightseeing experience in Japan. We had opportunities to experience Japanese culture by visiting areas of historical importance and learning about Japanese customs. He was very friendly and accommodating with changes in schedule during the trip. We would consider re-booking with Toru if we are visiting the area again.
Toru was courteous, reliable, and accommodating, He was prepared for the tour with maps and photos, and took us all around Sankei-en Garden in Yokohama and accompanied us to a cat cafe by special request. But it was difficult to understand his English. There was also a taxi ride misunderstanding, but Toru paid the driver for the extra distance we traveled.
Hello, Ms. Waynea Chen I once again could write you and thank you for your reviewing, in which I realized what and how to improve my ability of my tour guide. With my more knowledge and experience, I will do my best tour guide from now on. Best regards, Toru Ishii
