Amazing Experience with Shiny

Took a customized tour with Shinya which included the imperial palace, senjoi temple (during the festival)and Akihabara. Shinya was incredibly organized and knowledgeable, answering every question that was asked (and we had a lot) and was incredibly attuned to all of needs. He showed incredible flexibility as the plan was changed mid way especially in Akihabara where everyone was expressing different interest. Would highly highly recommend...

Great first day in Tokyo with Shinya

We had a great first day introduction to Tokyo with Shinya enjoying a focus on the contemporary architecture around Ometesando. It was a fun way to get into the spirit of Tokyo with a local whose personal passion is design and architecture. I can highly recommend Shinya to anyone coming to Tokyo, he is a great guide and wonderful company. Highly recommended.

A Most Delightful Experience

Shinya has a wonderful itinerary and an extremely personable manner. What made the tour so special is that he talked about the buildings and architects in the context of the period in which they were built. It was a well balanced and interesting tour that anyone interested in the built environment would enjoy. Thank you Shinya!
