“ Knowledgeable, friendly experienced guide with great English ”

With less than 1 days notice Yasuro (Yasu) pulled together a fulsome 1 day tour of Tokyo that enabled us to cover, Tsukiji Markets, the Imperial Palace forecourt, Ueno, Akihabara, Asakusa, Skytree, a river cruise to Hama-rikyu Gardens and a trip to Odaiba. Yasu’s knowledge and experience greatly contributed to us having an enjoyable day in Tokyo.


Dear Mr John, Thank you very much for your warm and generous review for me. It was my pleasure that I was able to guide you in Tokyo without any accident though I made a few minor mistakes. I guess you are on your way back to Australia and New Zealand. Please take care of yourselves, since it was a long journey in Japan. If you have a chance please come back to Japan again with your Mrs. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro

“ Half day Tokyo with Yasuro ”

Tour layout and plan: We selected our own sites to visit and attractions. English understanding and speaking: 4/5 Knowledge of culture and history: 4/5 Customer service: Very cumbersome, the website does not allow direct communication with the guide till the end so direct communication is not possible. 0/5 for this policy of the website. Overall rating: 4/5 for this tour.


Dear Mr Jehanzeb, Thank you very for your generous review with rating on every item. We will try to improve our service to every client's satisfaction further. Best regards, Yasuro

“ A day on Tokyo ”

Yasuro was a kindly and efficient guide. He adeptly ushered us through many sites of Tokyo, providing information and local knowledge. He gave us a good balance of things to see and do. We could never have seen so much of Tokyo in a day without his help. A lovely person to spend a day with! Many thanks, Yasuro


Dear Elaine and Rod, Thank you very much for warm and generous review for me! Have you arrived in Kanazawa without any trouble? It may be cooler than in Tokyo. Please take care of your selves and have good memories of your tour in Japan. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro
