About Tour Guide Yoshi S.

I started my second career as a guide after retiring from the Japanese computer company I had worked for about 40 years. I was born in Asakusa and grew up in down town in Tokyo. I am married with two daughters and three grandchildren, two girls and a boy.

I've experienced guiding international visitors in Tokyo and other famous sightseeing spots as a guide for several years. I will be so happy to help you enjoy your stay in Japan. Look forward hearing from you!


I am available from 9am to 5pm everyday.

I am flexible to one day trip to Hakone, Lake Kawaguchi and Nikko if you pay my transportation fee on top of the tour in Tokyo.

Great tour!

Yoshi was a great guide for my mum and her friend, making sure they could keep up and soak in the culture. They were very pleased and had a great experience. The fire ritual and drums played along with it were especially memorable. Will definitely reach out to Yoshi again next time! Thank you so much!

Yoshi S.

Hi Yue, Thank you for your warm message. I hope your mum and her friend are spending an enjoyable time in Japan. Best regards, Yoshi

Tokyo Day Tour

Yoshi was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable as we walked the Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Akihabara and Shinjuku. He was so patient with our daughters, showing them all the 'fun' shops and dealing with the extreme heat and humidity. Thank you Yoshi, great day!

Yoshi S.

Hi Jonathan, Thank you for your warm message. Please enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan. Best regards, Yoshi
