“ Whirlwind Tokyo Tour ”

Had a few days vacation in Tokyo and figured it would be good to get a guide for one day to see as much as possible and if I liked anything go back on my own and explore at my own pace. After booking Uemitsu and sending emails back and forth (he even suggested starting the tour an hour later in order to avoid rush hour) he met promptly at 10am in the lobby on my hotel. He helped me get a pass for the subway which helped speed things along since we were off and on trains all days. We visited many different parts of Tokyo including Akihabara (which I was able to return to the next day and fully explore thanks to him teaching me the subway lines), The imperial palace and various other places. He was invaluable with navigating the streets and helping to talk to people in shops and restaurants. His english was very good and I liked how laid back he made the tour. He wasn't in a uniform or use a microphone or carried around one of those flags on a stick. It was made it feel more like having a family friend or co-worker show me around and didn't make me stand out as a tourist to much. Thank you Uemitsu K and Triplelights for a great Tokyo Experience!!!

Uemitsu:
Michael, Thank you for your cordial comments. I hope that you will come again to Tokyo with your family members in 2020. Best regards,

“ Uemitsu or "Kage" his nickname is Great ”

I highly recommend Uemitsu. We planned our trip weeks in advance and he designed an itinerary that maximized our time. We saw a lot of beautiful tourist spots and some "secret" sites that many are not familiar with. Uemitsu or Kage is patient and an expert in what he does. He has a ready smile all the time partnered with superb customer service.

Uemitsu:
Dear Maynard, Thank you for your heartiful comments. I hope that your family had a good memory during your stay in Japan. Looking forward to seeing you again. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama

“ Great overview of Tokyo - customised ”

Our guide uemitsumet us on time at our hotel. The first thing we did was he assisted us with the best travel card option, and he recommended Pasmo. The tour was tailored to our needs as it was our first time in Tokyo, and we were looking for a guide to show us the sites and important must see things. It was my wife and Myself and our 2 teenagers. We travelled by rail, and walked miles covering Temples, shopping districts, electronic shops and other places of interest. Uemitsu caterd to our pace, and needs and was happy to rest when we wanted to. We stopped for lunch at a very nice plaza. We visited the must see areas, and often looked at things (Sky Tree For example) from the building next door.. great and free, and only something a local would know. He recommended times to come back to areas, and places or times to avoid. He also provided us with some snacks, and hand warmers, and showed us the best places to buy different Items we were chasing ( Flavoured Kit-Kats for half price). Absolutely value for money and we were exhausted. He gave us confidence to revisit many places over our next few days. Excellent tour guide.

Uemitsu:
Dear Brendan, Thank you for your great comments. I hope that your family will keep enjoying your stay in Tokyo this time and come back again in a couple of years. Best regards,

“ Great one day visit to Tokyo ”

Uemitsu made our one day stay in Tokyo memorable. We left all the museums and temples for a future visit and asked him to show us daily life in this great city. We learned to use the maze of trains and metros. We walked through areas of the city from the most touristic to the more subtile, we included a bit shopping... Great day, great guide. We feel we left for home with a good picture of life in Tokyo. Knowledgable, friendly, good English, flexible......We will be happy to come back to Uemitsu.

Uemitsu:
Dear Per, Thank you for your comments. You are welcome anytime to come back to Japan. I am happy to be your guide anytime. Best regards, Uemitsu
