What to Expect

In Samurai period, we had many tatami inns all over Japan. But because of modernaization, most of old historical village disappeared.
Only in rural area, you can see still old Japan. Old houses in Japan has interesting architecture, such as tatami straw mat, white wall and woodern lattice. It's very unique and has been kept since Shogunate period.

“ As much Tokyo as possible in one day! ”

Hiroshi (Gucci) was very good with communication before we met, making suggestions about itineraries and what was really do-able in one day. He was prompt and personable. He allowed me to set the pace (choosing when/where for lunch), and didn’t mind me spending some time for souvenir shopping. We used the subway a LOT (tip = buy the subway day pass!), and also did miles of walking. I was able to go out myself the next day sightseeing with confidence. On our day together we saw the Tsukiji fish market for breakfast, Asakusa Shrine, outer Imperial Palace, Shibuya, ramen shop, Meiji Shrine and Harajuku! Phew! Gucci’s English is great, as he lived in the US for a few years. Good guide to get you around the city to the highlights for sure!

Hiroshi:

Dear Allie. Thank you very much for your message. I am so glad for you to enjoy the tour in Tokyo. I hope see you soon someday. Best regards Gucci

“ Jam Packed Tokyo Day ”

We visited during Cherry Blossom Season. I gave Hiroshi (Gucci) the impossible task of us visiting many places in one day. Prior to booking, Hiroshi was patient and helped me in customizing our itinerary. He was prompt the day of our tour. I then told him we needed to cut our tour by 45 mins due to us having to go to show. He adapted well and rushed us when necessary at various sites. He is a reserved soul that will answer your questions and will follow your itinerary. He brought us to the best Ramen restaurant! We are back in the US and still think about that Ramen. Great job overall.

Hiroshi:

Dear Stacy.I am so glad to hear you to enjoy Ramen. It was a great time to talk to you and your family. Thank you so much Gucci

“ Great Experience! ”

This was an amazing day trip! Guchi was kind enough to meet us at the hotel and show us how to use the train system. Learning the train alone was invaluable! The walk with Guchi up Mt Takao was fun and exciting. He had us try local treats and was very knowledgeable about the mountains history and customs. We were very lucky to be visiting on a special day and see the Monks blessing the shops and restaurants along the path. We highly recommend Guchi as a tour guide and the Mt Takao excursion! Thank you Guchi for a great day!

Hiroshi:

Dear, Michele. Thank you very much for send me the message. I am happy to hear from you. I also enjoy the talk to you and it was good memory to see Buddhist monk at that day. I hope the stay at Tokyo was good for you. Best regards Guchi

“ A Great Choice ”

My wife and I are extremely happy we chose Hiroshi as our guide while on our first visit to Tokyo. His English is excellent. He is bright, personable, and quite well informed about all aspects of present day and past history of this fascinating city.

Hiroshi:

Dear Eric. It was my pleasure to talk to you about Japan and USA. I am very happy to guide you on tour of Tokyo. I hope you will have a great time in Japan. Have a safe trip. Best regards Guchi

“ Great Time ”

We had a memorable time in Japan with Guchi as our guide. He’s easy to understand and flexible. We were very pleased with the lunch & hands-on experiences like weaving & riding the Rickshaw. Highly recommended guide.

Hiroshi:

Dear Donna. I am so glad to hear you. Thank you very much for teaching me how to cook ahi poke. I enjoy real Hawaiian food so much. Someday l want to go to Hawai again and see you again. Best regards Guchi
