In case of bad weather, we will visit Italian Embassy Villa Memorial Park, Nikko Nature Museum, Fish and Forest Bio-Park, etc. instead of hiking.

“ This was my first trip to Tokyo Japan, and I felt accommodated to and welcomed. ”

Shoji was my introduction to Japan. From the onset, his kind demeanor put me right at ease. Shoji got me to where I needed to be, and I will always be grateful for him being available to me in short notice. The next time I visit, I'll keep Shoji in mind.

Shoji:

Thank you very much for your kind words, Gary. They really encourage me. I look forward to seeing and guiding you again next time.

“ A very full day ”

Shoji was a great tour guide. He showed us things we needed to see all over Tokyo. He covered a lot of ground and taught us how to use subways, pray at the temples, and order at restaurants. He was nice and fun. Some other tour guides may be better at knowing the history of places and symbolic significance. But if those things are not important to you, Shoji knows the city well and how to navigate it.

Shoji:

Thank you very much for your kind words that really encourage me. I had quite a fun time with you. I hope we can meet again in Japan or Texas some time soon.

“ Shimizu Port Tour 2 ”

I gave Shoji quite an ambitious list of sights that roughly followed his Shimizu Tour #2. In order to try and get us everywhere, he came to pick us up at the cruise terminal 20 minutes early in case we could debark early, which we were able to do. All during the day he made sure we were comfortable and happy. He arranged all kinds of little side trips and experiences once he discovered that we were interested in doing things off the beaten path. He is an excellent and experienced guide. I and my friends are well travelled and generally hire guides and private cars wherever we go. Shoji is one of a kind. You will not he disappointed if you hire him!! I wish I could have taken him with us as we continued our travels in Japan.

“ Discovering new places in Tokyo ”

After doing the main sightseeing during previous days, we have asked Shoji to take us through new places. He was very helpful in customizing the tour for us. We were delighted and surprised by what seen (esp. Hamarikyu Gardens).

Shoji:

Thank you for your kind words, Fabio. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I look forward to seeing you again someday in Japan.
