On our first full day in Tokyo Toshi took us around on a fabulous "little bit of everything" tour which included the Senso-Ji Temple and Nakamise Arcade, Tsukiji Fish Market, Hamarikyu Garden, Imperial Palace, Ginza Shopping and Omotesando Shopping Districts and the Shibuya Crossing. We even enjoyed lunch together Japanese style sitting on mats in Tsukiji. Toshi was personable and knowledgeable and we enjoyed conversation about everything from Japanese culture to economics. He was timely and polite and never once did we feel rushed. He met us at the hotel in the morning and took us back to the hotel at the end of our day. He also showed us how to navigate the subway system for the next couple of days on our own. It was truly a delight to spend the day with Toshi!
Dear Grace-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. We visited various places in Tokyo. You surveyed well about nice tourists spots. Unfortunately we couldn't visit all places you described, but you understood that the itinerary was effectively organized. In Tsukiji, my original plan was to sit on normal table. But Tsukiji market was extremely crowded because it was almost the end of the year. We needed to sit on Japanese Tatami mat room. It was difficult area for western people. But you accepted it positively as Japanese style experience. You were very cooperative. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
