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.
We spent one full day with Uemitsu and he understood our tastes and wishes and delivered! On time, knowledgeable and kind.
Uemitsu was a wonderful and patient guide. This was a first visit to Tokyo and we asked to exxplore many areas and get help with understanding the subway and bullet train to kyoto. I loved the Akihabara sights with the anime character dolls and robots but everything we saw was interesting. Our tour was nicely paced for all we saw and we had a lovely lunch. Every request we had was in the tour and we could not have gotten a better introduction to Tokyo!
He was very pleasant and tried hard to show us everything we requested to see
For my last day in Tokyo, I decided to go on an organized tour to catch some missed tourist attractions. We went to the Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine and a search for some tress with full cherry blossoms. We were unlucky in the botany department. We ended up in at Rapongi Hills area. Uemitsu was helpful, planned the routing, made sure we could get into the Palace Grounds tour and helped me make reservations at the Kanda Michellin Rated Restaurant.
We had a great experience on our tour with Uemitsu. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. It was a great introduction to Tokyo and set us up for the rest of our trip perfectly. Highly recommended!
