I was very happy to have teamed up with Yoshi for tour around Tokyo. We hit so many places all over Tokyo - at the end of the day we had walked a total of 13 miles. He was very prepared and even had guides for me to use to explore on my own. I highly recommend Yoshi, and TripleLights. Tokyo is overwhelming for a first time visitor and Yoshi made the day informative and enjoyable. One thing I would say for any visitor to Japan is to get an IC card upon arriving (Suica or Pasmo) it will save you time and money.
Thank you very much, Jim! I really appreciate your review. It was very nice to meet you and walk around in Tokyo together! I will try to improve my tour as much as possible so that the next guests will enjoy the trip at fullest without any inconveniences. I hope to see you again in the future! All the best!
