What to Expect

In this tour, we will visit 3 major places, the first place is Asakusa which is listed as No1 places among tourists. There is a big temple named "Senso-ji" and many souvenir shops on both side of a street to the temple. Also, you can enjoy Japanese cuisine in this area. The second place is Imperial palace east garden. You can not enter the palace but this east garden of Imperial Palace was center of Edo castle during Edo era( 1603-1868).Therefore in this garden you will see some relics of the castle. The last place is Meiji Shrine. This shrine is one of the most famous shrines in Japan. It was built in 1920 to enshrine Emperor Meiji. To reach to the Shrine, you have to walk in forest and you may forget you are in Tokyo because of silence. By visiting those 3 places you can see and feel Tokyo.

“ Excellent guide ”

Hiroshi was an excellent guide. We took tours of the history museum of Edo/Tokyo and we were very impressed with his depth of knowledge and his insight. We also visited some local temples and the famous fish market. He continued his high level of teaching and have very useful insights into the culture as well. His English was also exemplary.


Dear Brannon Thank you very much for writing an excellent review of my tour. It was very enjoyable tour with your family. Unfortunately Sumo practice was not able to see but taking pictures with Sumo wrestler will be unforgettable memory for James. I would like to express my gratitude for listening my talk very sincerely during the tour. I hope memory of this tour will be shared with your family and friends and more people may come to Japan to become fan of Japan. Thank you very much to choose me as your guide and have a good flight back to your home. Best regards Hiroshi

“ A tour well worth the money ”

Although I had an initial problem meeting Hiroshi, he was worth the problem. Hiroshi was extremely knowledgeable about Yokohama in general and Japanese society and culture in particular. He was most willing to adapt the schedule to accommodate my requests about places to visit. I really enjoyed our lunch in Chinatown


Dear Judith Thank you very much for your comment. I enjoyed a tour with you in Yokohama. I am very happy to find you satisfied my service. I hope I can be your guide again. Thank you and Best regards

“ A day of sightseeing in Tokyo ”

What an incredible day we had with Hiroshi. From the moment we met him at our hotel we felt very relaxed and comfortable with him. He took us to all the places we wanted to go and he also took us to some special shops that we would never have known to visit. His knowledge of everything is amazing and it was such a wonderful day. Wish we could hire him everyday to walk around with us 😀. Hiroshi is the best tour guide if you have small children as he’s very patient and very friendly. He has been so helpful in planning our whole trip to Japan and I will be telling all my family and friends to book a tour with him!!! 5 star experience with Hiroshi. Thankyou so much.


Dear Daniela Thank you very much for your excellent review. I enjoyed a lot with your family. Everyone was so nice and friedly to me. I tried to give you information to make your trip smoother and I hope you will have wonderful time in Japan. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to give you any help. Best regards

“ Three excellent tours with a very well informed guide ”

We spent three fantastic days with Hiroshi exploring contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and visiting Hakone. He was a well informed, interesting and engaging guide who was happy to answer all our random questions about life in Japan. Hiroshi was very organised and made sure that we saw lots of different places in the days we spent with him. He was also invaluable in the run up to the trip, giving us advice on money, travel arrangements and places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hiroshi as a guide.


Dear Sarah Thank you very much for your great review. I am very happy to find you spent good time with me. It was my first time to have a kid as my customer. The happiest thing for me was to see Pat's smile in any places. I hope my guiding supported him to know about Japan as well as you. Please make another chance to visit Japan and to meet again.
