“ Very good experience ”

Our first time in Japan.. Shoji has an easy going communication style through which he provided historical information and cultural nuances about the sites we visited. Based on our food preference he took us to a wonderful resturant that enhanced our Japanese experience. Shoji provides a high quality experience.. We highly recommend his services.


Thank you very much for your kind words. I’m so glad that you enjoyed the tour with me. I had a great time with you too. Sorry we couldn’t see the parade of the Emperor. I hope you come back to Japan in another season and look forward to seeing you again.

“ A Professional Tour Guide ”

Shoji is a consummate tour guide. He is knowledgeable, has very good people skills, and a great sense of humor. He arranged our itinerary in such a way as to maximize our experience. In just one day, I felt that I learned a great deal about the Japanese people and the country's culture. Shoji met and exceeded our expectations as a ģuide.

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

Shoji is a wonderful tour guide who was not only knowledgeable about the areas of our tour, but a very kind and thoughtful guide. Shoji was able to tailor our route to accommodate my husband’s needs having some difficulties walking some steps so we were able to take public transportation to experience what it is like to ride the train in Tokyo to some of our destinations. We would highly recommend Shoji for a guide when visiting Tokyo.


Thank you so much, Audrey for your kind words. Your heartwarming words greatly encourage me. It was nice meeting you and being your guide. You and John are very good couple. I really enjoyed John’s jokes. Please say thanks to him for me. I hope you had a great time in Tokyo and also in other places you visited. Thanks again for joining my tour.

“ Fantastic tour to see a lot of Tokyo in one day ”

Shoji was very communicative from the time I booked the tour. I only had one free day in Tokyo, and this was exactly what I was looking for. He guided me to several sights around the city and gave interesting and insightful historical and cultural context. I really enjoyed taking the public transportation to get a glimpse of life in Tokyo. Having Shoji lead me around saved so much time and stress. I highly recommend Shoji!


Thank you very much for your kind words. I was really encouraged by your words. I had a great time with you on the tour and learned a lot from you. I hope you will be a big fun of Japan and will come again in another season. Be careful of the strong typhoon!
