“ Day tour in Tokyo with Junichi ”

Junichi was an excellent guide who went to a lot of detail in his planning and preparation of our tour. He was punctual. He was considerate in finding lifts and escalators at the Subway stations as one of our party had slight mobility issues. He gave us much information on the history and local customs and Japanese language, He took us to many interesting places including very nice parks, gardens, Shrines, River cruise, Fish market for lunch, busy shopping streets and the Shibuya scramble crossing. He gave us lots of experiences in using the subway system. His English was very good. Due to our full itinerary, he stayed on with us for more than 1 1/2 hours extra time to make sure we saw everything and got back to our hotel safely. We would highly recommend Junichi as a tour guide to any other tourists considering Tokyo day tours.
