“ We had a great time with Toru ”

Toru took us from Tokyo on a tour of Nikko. He took care of all the logistics including subway and train tickets. Toru met us at our hotel described the details of the tour and then took us to an amazing Nikko. He guided us through great shrines and temples including great Toshogu shrine. Tory was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We had a great day and would recommend Tori to anyone looking for a friendly and knowledgeable guide.

Toru:

Hi Igo, thank you very much for your kind comments. I'm pretty happy to know you seemed to enjoy the tour in Nikko. I'm afraid we didn't have time to visit Kegon Waterfall and Lake Chuzenji this time. I hope we can next time. How is your trip going? Three of you are enjoying a journey in Kyoto. I'm waiting for you to come back again and enjoy another attractions in this country. Thank you again.

“ Day 1 of 4 ”

Fantastic day travelling around Tokyo like a local. Toru took us to places of interest to us. He is very interesting to talk to and very happy to discuss any subject of Japanese life and culture.

Toru:

Hi, Linda. Thank you very much for your warm comments. Guiding for three days in Tokyo was very challenging and enjoyable for me. We have one more day and I'm looking forward to hearing your adventure story in Nagano.

“ 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.
