“ Fabulous!!! ”

Highly recommended tour and tour guide. We loved every minute of our tour with Shuichi. His tour was informative and interesting. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic day and was so great with the kids. Nothing was too much trouble and and we had a fabulous day. The kids keep asking where Shu is today... They were hoping he was going to be with us every day of our holiday in Tokyo.

SHUICHI:

Thank you for your wonderful comment. I also had a great time with your family, especially with the children. Continue your wonderful trip and please come back to Japan someday in future. Good-by today.
