“ Very Professional Guide ”

Toshi was a substitute for a different guide that canceled due to illness. I had also mistakenly scheduled our tour on a travel day so we weren’t sure what to expect. Toshi arrived with maps and written literature on how to navigate Tokyo. She guided us to two special events that we would have missed otherwise. We got a late start and Toshi stayed with us into her dinner time. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and recommend T-Chan highly.


It was a pleasant surprise to meet you both, Karole and Tom! We were indeed lucky to have seen two seasonal events as they were only available on our tour date. The Hanamatsuri festival in Zojoji Temple was something, wasn't it? The parade of monks, supporters, traditional firefighters, children, and Buddhist choir was a sight to see! The kimonos they were wearing are special ones just for the occasion. Another lucky coincidence was the fact that they opened the Imperial Palace to the public for the hanami (cherry blossom viewing). We're usually not allowed to go inside. It was fun to stroll the the streets within the palace grounds. Did it make you feel like royalty? (I certainly did!) Hope to see you soon!
