“ Great day with Toshi! ”

My husband and I had a lovely day with Toshi touring around Tokyo. We had been to Tokyo once before and Toshi took notes on where we had been and brought us to all new places. From shrines to temples, gardens and museums, it was a great day. At the end of the day, Toshi introduced us to and joined us at the most authentic Japanese restaurant in an old house - no signage or anything.. never would have found it without him. It was fabulous!! Apart from just being a tour guide, Toshi is very insightful and knowledgeable about a huge variety of different topics. Very easy and enjoyable to talk to! Thanks Toshi!! We hope to be back!


It was indeed a fun day for me too. Thanks for being a good client for me too. When you come back again, please let me know a little in advance. I will prepare an even better course for you including some toward some neighboring cities like Nikko and Kamakura. Hope to see you soon.

“ Evening Dinner ”

We had a wonderful time!! The restaurant and dinner arranged by Toshi was the best we had during our trip. When we go again we will for sure make arrangements with Toshi and this time for more restaurants as well as other tours


Felix Thank you very much for your nice comments. I myself enjoyed conversation with you and your wife. I would be happy if you come back again to Japan and if I can take you to other fine gourmet restaurants in Tokyo, as there are many. Your stay this time was a very short one. Japan offers a lot more to see and enjoy. Hope to see you again.

“ Dos d?as en Tokio con un muy buen gu?a ”

Nuestra experiencia con Toshi fue simplemente excelente! Toshi es amable, organizado, dispuesto a hacer el cambio que fuera necesario según las condiciones meteorológicas, del tiempo que se disponía etc. Nos llevó a sitios donde pudimos probar deliciosos platos japoneses y donde no era muy costoso comer. En pocas palabras: Toshi hizo que pudiéramos disfrutar de dos días en Tokio inolvidables!


Lucia, Gracias por sus amables palabras. Yo mismo disfrute la conversación con su grupo. Que tenga buen viaje a Colombia. Y que regresen de nuevo a Japón. Hay mucho más lugares que puedan disfrutar!
