“ Very Knowledgeable and Professional, G-Cans Facility Tour ”

Mr. Yoshihisa was very accommodating during my tour of the Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel (also known as the G-Cans facility). I had short notice before the tour, but Mr. Yoshihisa was quick to respond with his availability for being a translator, since the public tour was only in Japanese. Translation was reliable during the tour. I appreciate his recognition of my interest of the facility.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Roger for your kind review. It was indeed a very special and exicitng experience, especially on a day just a few days after big rainfall. We were able to experience the real functioning of this underground donjon.I am so exitec that I was with a person like you, so enthusiastic to know many things about this facility. Also I felt very honored to know that my translation helped to know better about this rare underground shrine. I hope we meet again. Thank you.

“ ONE OF THE BEST PRIVATE GUIDES I’VE HAD ! ”

I am very active senior from New York & have travelled extensively with my late wife and just finished a wonderful solo trip to JAPAN. I had the pleasure of having Yoshihisa as my guide for a 1 day trip to KAMAKURA, from Tokyo. Of the 5 different guides I had in JAPAN, he was the best. Yoshi is an extremely intelligent man who was a pleasure to be with. Very informative. I can say a lot more but I believe I made myself clear.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Alan for your most generous words. I feel it was a greatest ever fortunate to have been able to meet with a person like you. We have a word coming from zen buddhism saying Ichigo Ichie, meaning though we may never see each other again, our memory of encounter stays forever. Together with many other inspirations you gave me, including your love to your late wife, I will not forget about you and a beautiful day together in Kamakura. Thanking again and wishing you all the best. Yoshihisa

“ Tokyo night tour ”

Phenomenal night tour he knows exactly how to get from place to place without a wasted step. He’ll be showing you things on the way to where you are going. His English is great and I don’t think the tour could have been any better. Well worth the money, this guy is great!

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Tom for your generous words. Despite the storm of the night before, we were lucky to have been able to spend a great evening, fewer people, short queue etc. I too have enjoyed the tour with you. I hope you have not been too much disturbed by the traffic to the airport, because later I found that trains may have been stopped longer than expected. Hoping to be able to see you again for your next visit to Tokyo. Thank you again. Yoshihisa

“ Best day trip I’ve ever done ”

What a excellent decision to have Yoshihisa show me his beautiful country. We met at the train station and did a e bike 6 hour tour around Tokyo. This covered new modern side of Tokyo and old traditional side which was amazing. Yoshihisa’s knowledge is unalbelievable. Every question I could ask was answered. Do not hesitate to have him show you around Tokyo. Thank you again my friend, like I said in our goodbyes , you gave me a beautiful memory I will never forget!

Yoshihisa:

Thank you George for your generous comments. It was a great moment for me to travel around Tokyo with a person like you. As you have commented, there are many aspects in this city, and I was very much encouraged and pleased by your enthusiasm to know about Tokyo. Although we have covered quite a good part of Tokyo, but there are more of secrets of this city and also depending on the season, it changes its face. So, I truly look forward to the next opportunity to meet you. Thank you.

“ Great half-day bicycle ride around Tokyo ”

What a great experience! We contacted Yoshihisa while we were in Tokyo and told him what we had already visited on our own. We had done the Sky Hop Bus and visited quite a bit on our own using the Metro. We wanted to see Sumo and lesser known spots. He offered two options, one by e-assist bikes and one walking tour. We picked the bike tour and did not regret it even if we don’t regularly ride bicycles at home. With their electric assistance, the bikes were fast and easy, even in small hills. Yoshihisa had prepared a tour that started and finished at Tokyo Station, close to our hotel. We started at 7:00 in order to catch Sumo practice that finished at 8:00. Even if we watched from outside the stable, the windows and door were open and we had a clear view and heard them. Some even went... read more

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Stéphane for all your generous words. I am pleased that my recommendation was gladly accepted by you and you enjoyed it. Indeed, I too enjoyed a lot this fresh morning tour with you. It was a great honor and priviledge for me as a guide to be with persons like you, with thoughtfulness and so much passion to know about Tokyo. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation to start earlier than the original schedule, a minor change of timeflame therafter, and above all the flexibility and patience shown at the end of the tour. The buddhist ceremony was impressive Indeed, and I felt greatly rewarded by your interest which was way beyond tourists eyes, and was more a real approach to the spirituality of the local people. The chant at loud of a person behind us added an accent f... read more
