About

Hello everyone ! I'm Komine, licensed guide. please call me Toshiro.

你们好,我叫komine(小嶺) 你们可以叫我Toshiro. 我其本上是在台湾跟

马来西亚学过华语的。另外为了做生意, 以前常常去香港所以也会讲广东话。

希望你们早日有机会来日本观光。然后让我安排你们的日程和陪你们看看最深部的日本。

我是酒鬼也是很喜欢吃的人所以擅长巡回美食店。

I have ever stayed Malaysia and Taiwan where I learned Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese as well as

English. During my working days in Taiwanese shipping company, been to China, Taiwan, Hongkong and most of Southeast Asia countries nearly hundred times and became a big fan of these Asian cultures, food, languages and people there. After leaving company I decided to be a interpreter-guide in Tokyo to show my gratitude to foreign visitors, who showed best hospitality to me.

I love eating and drinking so quite confident not only showing you popular sites in Tokyo and neighboring cities in Kanto area such as Kamakura, Yokohama, Hakone but also can take you to nice restaurants for

any kind of food you like. As I have experiance traveling many countries, I can assist you to plan better

sight-seeing and eating itenerary upon request.

Looking forward to seeing you then !

Tour of Yasukuni

I think the tour could have been better if Toshiro was more enthusiastic to take us around.

Sorry for your comment. The museum was hard for me to show you around as a son, reminding me my late father who was a navy. Toshi

Highly educated and very fun tourguide

Toshiro is an highly intelligent man that is very knowledgeable and fun to be around. We went to Tsukiji market, Asakusa, Ginza and so many other places that I lost count. What makes Toshiro unique is his perfect English, high knowledge of food and restaurants around Tokyo and easy going personality. Toshiro really knows so much and even advises you on authentic versus not high quality food which allows you to avoid tourist traps. I spoke with Toshiro for literally hours and hours and it really felt like spending time with an old friend. Toshiro is special in which we try a variety of different food while on the tour and end at a very delicious restaurant. He even helped me book a train to Kyoto. Toshiro is highly professional, punctional and attentive and I truly recommend him to others. Thank you for a great day in Japan Toshiro!

Dear Christina san, Thanks so much for your compliment. I don’t know how to thank you enough for appointing me and myself enjoyed showing you around and sorry for not able to paying attention to your condition. pls consult with a hotel staff for any help to get better ready for Kyoto trip. Hoping your nice trip for remaining days in Japan and safely go back to LA.

Enjoyable outings!

I had asked TripleLights if they had guides who spoke Mandarin and they had suggested a few names. When I wrote to Toshiro, I had a number of replies and I was assured from the correspondences that he took his guiding very seriously. Toshiro is considerate and kind. He ensured that my mother (75 years of age) could understand him through his spoken Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkien dialects. I did also communicate that she had walking challenges so when it came to taking the stairs at the subways, Toshiro always made it a point to look for escalators or elevators. Mom had 2 trips with Toshiro, both of which lasted 4 to 5 hours, so that it would not be too exhausting for her. She also could only start her adventures from 10am onwards, so Toshiro was kind enough to time the itinerary as much as possible to accommodate her. I would certainly recommend Toshiro to be the guide if you have elderly travelling with you who do not speak English but who wish to enjoy Tokyo with a local Japanese. It was fun for mom!

Toshiro K.

Hi Joanne san, It was nice guiding your mom while first day under heavy rain walked almost one hour. Besides I haven’t spoken mandarin almost a month (second day was bit better). Your complement gave me a lot of energy and motivation. Now many subway stations are constructing elevators and escalators so your mom forced to walk up and down staircases. next year more convenient towards Olympic. Welcome back to Tokyo again next year. Thanks again for your nomination. Toshi

Helpful and Effective translator

I made an unconventional request that Toshiro accompany me on a private factory tour as a translator. He was prompt in his response and even did background research. The day of the tour Toshiro was punctually awaiting our arrival. He was patient despite there being a miscommunication about the tour time. His translation skills were excellent and truly made the tour an excellent experience. Afterwards he helped us navigate our way home. I couldn’t recommend Toshiro’s services more strongly.

Toshiro K.

Dear Nolan san, Thanks so much for your evaluation, giving me 5-star. I was worrying if I can translate in case you were pro or working furniture biz as I have limited knowledge and ability to translate. Any case it was lucky that there were big shopping mall next to the factory . Hoping both of you are okay and resumed working days. Looking forward to serving you again ! Toshio
