“ Sunset ? Tokyo ”

It was perfect 👌🏿 Toshi has gave us so much insight on the history and art in Japan. He made many wonderful suggestions for our days in Japan. Since we bought the Japan rail pass he said we should go to Hiroshima to get the most value for our pass. Hiroshima has a nearby island you can take a ferry to that is included with the JR pass. Toshi took several pictures, he said it would be proof we were there. He told us to many people in Japan visiting the temples and shrines is a pilgrimage. We saw many special ceremonies; a wedding, monks chanting, a beautiful sunset. Toshi is professional, kind and generous. He has a lot of experience with traveling the world. He was very good to us and I’d request him again!


Dear Sarah-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. It was nice memory to walk around Tokyo with your family. You surveyed well about unusual spots in Tokyo. Not only famous tourists sites but also we visited unique area like Meguro Sky Garden. It was my first time to visit this garden. Owing to your good curiosity, I could experience and enjoy new place in Tokyo. It was helpful for a tour guide. Thank you again. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ limited time in Tokyo ”

Mr Toshihiro made good use of the limited time we had in Tokyo


Dear Mary-san, Thank you for the tour review and hiring me as a tour guide in spite of your short stay in Tokyo. I spent wonderful time with your family. It was just a morning tour as you had booking on Ninja Trick House in early afternoon, and I asked you to hurry up several times. Next time, I would like to guide you for a full day or a few days tour. Philippines is near to Japan and please come to Tokyo again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ A wonderful guide! ”

Toshihiro was a terrific tour guide. From the moment I booked with him, he was available to answer all my questions. He responded quickly to my emails and I knew that he wanted me to have a good trip. He was always punctual which was great because I had planned two very full days with him! He knew his way around the transportation system (which, in my opinion, is very complicated!),and that saved a lot of time. When it came to the itinerary he was open to all my requests. He even rearranged the tour on one of the days because he knew that the site we were visiting would be more crowded in the afternoon. He was also very flexible because he was open to adding a few sites to visit when he heard that we were interested in going there. He was very generous with his time! Even though... read more


Dear Lainie-san, Thank you very much for the wonderful tour review. All the requests you asked me were reasonable and I noticed that you investigated well about Japan. Before coming to Tokyo, you stayed at Kyoto and gave me various information. Your such a behavior helped me to arrange the tour plans for two days in Tokyo. I enjoyed walking in Tokyo with you, your husband and your friends. It was amazing moment for me to talk with you about a lot of matters. Thank you very much for hiring me as a tour guide for such an excellent group. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ A wonderful customized tour of Tokyo with our kids ”

Toshi was very accommodating and an excellent tour guide! He was understanding and flexible when we needed to change our tour date last minute due to a flight delay. He listened to our suggestions about what our kids would/would not be interested in, customized our tour, was patient when we lingered certain times, had great English, and took lots of family photos for us. It was perfect!


Dear Grace-san, Thank you very much for the excellent tour review. I appreciate your responsibility and patience as your flight was delayed by wildfire in California and you needed to change the plan. But you informed me of schedule change information promptly and accepted new itinerary flexibly. I could do a tour guide with joy. It was my happy time to walk around Tokyo as if I were a member of your family. I would like to see the growth of your kids. Please come to Japan again five or ten years later. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Tokyo day tour ”

-excellent communication pre-tour set up; we had a family emergency and could not make our initial planned date but Toshihiro-san rescheduled with no issue -very adaptable in our tour giving us time where we found more interesting -we have two children with severe nut allergies and Toshihoro-san was as cautious as we were in our travels together -very knowledgeable and adept at navigating the subway lines getting us to our destinations quickly and efficiently -facilitating a tour for a family of 7 could not have been easy but Toshihiro-san did it with professionalism and was basically our family for the day. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone and would certainly look to him should we need guidance in any future visits. -our thanks Toshi for an amazing expe... read more


Dear Brian-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. You informed me of the delay of arriving at Japan in spite of emergency situation. If you hadn't informed me of the delay, I would have visited the hotel on original schedule and wasted time. But I didn't waste of time owing to your responsible action. I have to say "Thank you". All seven members of your family are excellent people and showed a lot of interests on Japanese culture and history. It was worthwhile moment for the tour guide. When purchasing Disney tickets, there was an issue in credit card. But you handled well with patience. You treated me as if I was a member of your family. It was great time for me. I truly enjoyed guiding you in Tokyo. I am sure that you enjoy Disney resort and other spots in Japan. ... read more
