“ Lovely and Helpful ”

I was very happy with Toshihiro as a guide. He was a tremendous help with sorting out my Rail Pass and explaining the transportation system. We started at Hokusai museum which is a must. He knows a lot of history, will avoid the tourist traps and accompanied me back to my hotel at the end of a busy day.

Toshihiro:

Dear Lucero-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. You must have been very tired as your flight to Tokyo was tremendously delayed. But you joined my tour as scheduled. It was my first time to visit Hokusai museum. It was wonderful place to see one of the excellent painters in Japan. Thank you very much for your patience and new opportunity for me. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Walking tour of Tokyo highlights ”

Toshihiro guided round some of the highlights of Tokyo on foot and public transport which was very interesting. He was informative and very happy to give us plenty of time for photos and looking at whatever we wanted. The sights were all fascinating and colourful. We did not want to go to museums and preferred to wander around the places popular with Japanese people. We had a lovely day and enjoyed our time with Toshihiro.

Toshihiro:

Dear Gill-san and Tony-san, Thank you for the fine tour review. You arrived at Tokyo by cruise ship in early morning and did Tokyo tour. I think that you were tired but I hope that you enjoyed the city watching in Tokyo. It was nice discussion for me to compare London with Tokyo, and Queen with Emperor. I could learn many things about UK and England. In some tourist spots, there were too many people. I hope that the photos would be good enough as memory of Tokyo. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Excellent tour guide with deep knowledge of Tokyo and its history ”

We hired Toshi for a 2 day tour in Tokyo and it was super worth it. He took us all around the city by subway - which saved time and money. He had extensive knowledge of the history of Tokyo and Japan which helped tremendously when visiting the different places and connecting the dots. We traveled to Kyoto after and a lot of what we learned with Toshi came in handy - it was great to understand more about Japan and also learned lots of historical facts. The tour itself was a great mix of traditional tourist attractions (Imperial palace gardens, shrines and ueno park) with key urban areas of Tokyo (Takeshita street, Shibuya). We had a really comprehensive schedule (8 hours each day) and visited multiple places that were all equally worth it - and Toshi just makes the experience super enjo... read more

Toshihiro:

Dear Carla-san and Jarrod-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. It was also wonderful time for me to walk around various area in Tokyo with you. I must apologize as I said "We don't need umbrella today", but it was slightly rainy in the Imperial place on the first day of the tour. Thank you for your patience. And I appreciate your multi language skill. Jarrod-san is a big person and one guy in Tsukiji market mistook him as a professional basketball player. But he is an extremely gentle person. I was really lucky to guide you. I am happy to hear that my explanation about Japanese history was useful when you were in Kyoto. From this May, new era came to Japan because emperor changed. You were in Tokyo at Heisei era. But we are now in Reiwa era. Please come to Japan aga... read more
