“ Great one day visit to Tokyo ”

Uemitsu made our one day stay in Tokyo memorable. We left all the museums and temples for a future visit and asked him to show us daily life in this great city. We learned to use the maze of trains and metros. We walked through areas of the city from the most touristic to the more subtile, we included a bit shopping... Great day, great guide. We feel we left for home with a good picture of life in Tokyo. Knowledgable, friendly, good English, flexible......We will be happy to come back to Uemitsu.

Uemitsu:
Dear Per, Thank you for your comments. You are welcome anytime to come back to Japan. I am happy to be your guide anytime. Best regards, Uemitsu

“ Tokyo at its best ”

My son and I went to Japan for a week, which is not much. We needed a tour on our first day in Japan to see Tokyo's most representative sites of its culture, and its exactly what we experienced. Our guide took us to fascunating sites. We also learned about history, how transportation works, and propper manners to have in this extraordinary city. Thank you Kage.

Uemitsu:
Dear Guadalupe Thank you for your commemts. I hope you will enjoy Kyoto as well. Best regards, Uemitsu

“ Whirlwind Tokyo Tour ”

Had a few days vacation in Tokyo and figured it would be good to get a guide for one day to see as much as possible and if I liked anything go back on my own and explore at my own pace. After booking Uemitsu and sending emails back and forth (he even suggested starting the tour an hour later in order to avoid rush hour) he met promptly at 10am in the lobby on my hotel. He helped me get a pass for the subway which helped speed things along since we were off and on trains all days. We visited many different parts of Tokyo including Akihabara (which I was able to return to the next day and fully explore thanks to him teaching me the subway lines), The imperial palace and various other places. He was invaluable with navigating the streets and helping to talk to people in shops and restaurants. His english was very good and I liked how laid back he made the tour. He wasn't in a uniform or use a microphone or carried around one of those flags on a stick. It was made it feel more like having a family friend or co-worker show me around and didn't make me stand out as a tourist to much. Thank you Uemitsu K and Triplelights for a great Tokyo Experience!!!

Uemitsu:
Michael, Thank you for your cordial comments. I hope that you will come again to Tokyo with your family members in 2020. Best regards,

Uemitsu was a fantastic guide. We tailored our tour to suit the interests of all our family members (party of 4) and it all worked great. Having a local guide made moving around Tokyo extremely easy and we did MANY more things that we thought possible on a single day. Highly recommended!!

Uemitsu:
Dear Pablo, Thank you for your warm message. It was my honor to escort the first day of your family stay in Japan. I hope that your family will keep enjoying all the stay in Japan, including Kyoto, Hiroshima, Nagoya, and others. Best regards,
