Shinya was the best guide you could ask for. He was polite, knowledgeable, spoke perfect English and was totally prepared. He showed us the "real" Tokyo.


Thank you so much for your feedback. I am very glad to hear that. Best regards, Shinya Endo

“ Wonderous Akihabara ”

Shinya is an excellent tour guide. He is super! In Akihabara, there are so many flashy buildings for electronic products, anime, cosplays, toys or neo cultures. I could look around them with no wasting time as selected thanks to him. Everything I watched in the tour was much deeper than I thought. Thank you!


Dear Yoko Thank you very much for your note! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Shinya
