There are 13 million people in Tokyo. I have no idea how many guides there are in that figure, but I DO know, I got the best man for me, to be my guide. I chose him from his video on the TRIPLELIGHTS site. He spoke English perfectly. Sadly, he was only available for one day during my 4 day visit to Tokyo. I told him what I wanted to see in my limited time. Noodles and sushi being the number two things. lol. He put together a tour for me tailored to what I wanted to do. It was perfect. Yoshi met me at my hotel, we sat and discussed what would be our plan due to the rain. Nothing stopped us. We soldiered on. He showed me how to use the train system such that the one other day, when he was not available, I was able to run around town on my own and never a problem. He is good. Yoshi is very knowledgeable about Japan's and Tokyo's history. Made it very interesting. He explains and shows you things which gives one confidence. And believe me, to use the Tokyo subway system, you need a lot of confidence. I say everyone should get Yoshi to be your guide, IF HE IS AVAILABLE. Thank you, Yoshi. Bryan
Thank you, Bryan. I myself enjoyed showing my home town. I am glad to know that you enjoyed everyday Tokyo life, despite a rainy day. There are a lot of interesting places other than touristy spots in Tokyo. Please come back!
