“ Great guide providing a wonderful experience ”

Toru provided a wonderful experience for my husband & I while in Tokyo. His English was excellent and easy to understand. He had a great knowledge of the sites visited as well as the history and culture of his country. Both in planning and during our trip, he was flexible and very prompt. He helped us to make the most of our short stay in Tokyo. He was a true gentleman in many ways and we truly enjoyed our time with him.

Toru:

Hi Donna and Ken, Thank you very much for your kindly comments. I was also enjoyed guiding favored by the friendly couple and magnificent weather for two days. I hope you'll be back to your country with enjoyable memories in Japan. Next time, I'm waiting for you in Autumn! Thank you again, good-bye for now.

“ Outstanding personality and tour ”

Of all of our adventures around the world, our day with Toru is among our favorites. He is kind, generous, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. He was responsive to our needs and flexible to our whims. He navigated us through many experiences, including the food. He took great care to be sure we were having a great time and he was a very good conversationalist about many topics. He definitely went the extra mile for us. If we return to Japan, we hope to book him again. Thank you Toru!

Toru:

Hi Lance and Dari, thank you very much for your warm comments. I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. I also enjoyed the tour with you and was very impressed with your tour style that reflects your own way of thinking. I hope you'll be back to your home with joyful memories in Japan. Looking forward to guiding you in the next trip to Japan. Thank you again.

“ Kamakura tour ”

One of the best ways to see a place is using a personal tour guide, Toru responded quickly and adjusted to our likes and wishes . Comparing all the tours available, my group was able to go at our own pace and plan our itinerary . I asked to do a tea ceremony , which was definitely a highlight being private and his choice of the gardens was peaceful and beautiful . Our seaside lunch introduced us to the local fish and felt it was really A local spot - no tour buses! We even got to watch a surfer hitting the waves from the restaurant! He was knowledgable about the area and give us new insights. His English was perfect and clear , with a touch of accent !!! I wish we had more energy and time to cover all the sights. Thoroughly enjoyed his company and felt like I’ve known him for years ..... read more

Toru:

Hello Corinne, thank you very much for your warm comments on the tour. I also enjoyed guiding you and your lovely family. This time it was a season of hydrangeas in Kamakura. Next time, maybe, in the season of cherry blossoms or Autumn leaves. I'm looking forward to seeing you and your family in the near future. Thank you again.
