“ Very knowledgeable guide! ”

Toshi was a wonderful guide for us in Tokyo. She is kind, very intelligent, and has a very good sense of humor. She provided a good summary of Japanese history and culture as we toured, including the basis of Shinto and the assimilation of Buddhism in Japan. We highly recommend Toshi!


Glad to hear you enjoyed our tour, Virginia! I aim to please! It was great to spend time with you and your husband. Your suggestion of an early start was inspired. We were able to make the most of the beautiful weather and managed to see a lot of places before the weekend crowd came. As you mentioned, most Japanese people are raised observing both Shinto and Buddhist practices and rituals. They're both part of our unique culture. Enjoy the rest of your stay! Hope you can come back soon? Autumn perhaps? There's so much more to see and experience!
