“ Junichi was wonderful ”

We saw so many places in one day! He showed us parts of Tokyo that we would have never found on our own and optimized our limited time in Tokyo. Definitely would recommend.

“ Fantastic Guide - Knew Tokyo so well!!! ”

Junichi was AMAZING. Without him we would still be lost somewhere in Tokyo!! He knew exactly where everything was and the best way to get there. We were only in Tokyo for 1.5 days, and some members of our group had mobility issues - so having the help of Junichi saved us so much time - where it might have taken us 10 mins at each subway station to figure out where we were, where we needed to be and where to find the lift, Junichi showed us the best way to go in seconds. He also showed us all different cultural things that we never even knew existed, like how to get your fortune at the temple and SO many other adventures. Junichi was so lovely with our whole group, ranging from young children with additional needs through to elderly members with mobility restrictions. PS Juni... read more

“ A Fast-Paced Day in Tokyo ”

Junichi-san is a wonderful guide. He was already at the hotel lobby as scheduled and he was able to show us how beautiful Tokyo is given that we had so little time for the tour and even if it there were times that it rained. He was very knowledgeable about all the places we went to. He was flexible enough to accommodate our changes during the tour because of the upcoming typhoon. He even helped us on our way back to the train station so we could make our way to Osaka before the trains shut down due to the typhoon. We cannot wait to come back when we have more time to see all that Tokyo has to offer.
