“ First time having sushi ”

We hired Toshio as our guide at the last minute because of another guide cancellation. I'm so glad that we did because Toshio was perfect! He traveled to where we were to pick us up and ride the Subway system so that we did not get lost. He took us through the outer markets Tskiji and pick the perfect place for us to try sushi for the first time. What he was very knowledgeable about the area and the foods that we should try according to our taste. I am so pleased with our tour and we had the perfect afternoon.


Dear Alisha Thank you very much for your review! I am very glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. I really enjoyed the tour with such a nice couple like you! Please come back to Japan and enjoy a lot of sushi next time! I am looking forward to seeing you again. Please send my best regards to your husband! Thank you again and see you again! Toshio

“ Had an amazing day to know the life of a Japanese. ”

Mr. Toshio is an amazing person. Very calm and willing. He showed me around Yanaka and other areas in the limited time we had. Most importantly, he answered every single question I had to understand the life of a normal Japanese. The conversations made this whole trip alive. He even took extra time to help me understand the metro system so that I could het back hassle free. Thanks Mr Toshio. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


Dear Mr.Manoaj Thank you very much for your review! I really enjoyed talking with you. I had a so very good time! I really appreciate all your kindness. I hope you will be successful in your life. I am looking forward to seeing you again! Thank you again and Good luck!! Toshio

“ Lovely Cherry Blossoms lovely Guide. ”

My wife Wilma and I were most fortunate to find Toshio as a guide. He met and returned us to our hotel took us to see the Cherry Blossoms in two spectacular venues. He took us to lunch at a Sushi restaurant that was obviously of good reputation with the locals as the tables were continually occupied. Toshio was very knowledgeable about Tokyo and it’s amenities. In addition he was a sensitive and attentive guide. How fortunate were we to have an individual guide rather than be part of a group following a person with a number on a stick. Thank you Toshio for a wonderful day. Wilma and Bill Pimm Australia.


Dear Mr.William and Ms.Wilma Thank you very much for such a wonderful review!! I am very glad you enjoyed the tour. I really enjoyed cherry blossoms and lunch with such a nice couple like you!! I had a really memorable time with you. I hope you will enjoy your healthy and happy life and come back to Japan some day. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you again!! and see you again!! Toshio
