“ doesn't seems professional ”

We requested to go Tsukiji Outer Market and Asakusa. It was a rainy day during the tour. Totally felt that the guide fees was not worth at all. The whole tour was awkward and unclear as there is little to no explanation on the places we went to and there is not much of conversation among us. We were the one who asked question but sometimes he just answered with a smile. We were being asked to get a 900yen one day metro & subway pass without being told why.

Uemitsu:

Dear Mei, I apologize that I coild not serve you well bacause it had been raining and the we had encountered jam in the trains. But, I remebered that I explained the one day subway pass is the most economical and convenient way to cover the route that you requested, so your.family agrred to puchased the tickets from the vending machines by youselves. Actually, I had a problem for this tour because your reservation request an English guide, but asked me to guide your family in Chinese just before we start the tour on the day. So, probably I could not get the meaning of your some questions. Hope that you will find a better Chinese guide next time. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama

“ Wonderful Guide ”

Our group of 6 engaged Uemitsu to for a 1-1/2 day tour of Tokyo. His English is articulate and his knowledge of Tokyo and the subway system was invaluable to our group. He also modified our itinerary based on the weather to ensure we had the best viewing experience of the sights we wanted to see. Uemitsu was punctual, personable and knowledgeable. He also has a wonderful sense of humor and made our sightseeing exciting and fun. We would highly recommend Uemitsu to anyone looking for a guide and, given the opportunity, would engage his services again.

Uemitsu:

Dear Ellen, Thank you for your heartful comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with me. Looking forward to seeing you in the near future. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama

“ Wonderful experience ”

Uemitsu was very thoughtful and knowledgeable throughout our tour. He explained very well and showed us the Tokyo transportation system as it was our first time in Japan. He also made extra effort to find those parks with full cherry blossom since we arrived 1.5. week after the blooming in Tokyo area. We enjoyed our first time in Japan and glad we were able to use the train system on our own throughout the visit even in Kyoto .

Uemitsu:

Dear Jimmy, Thank you for tou review. I am glad to be able to support your stay in Tokyo. Hope that you enjoyed all of your visit to Japan. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama
