“ Uemitsu or "Kage" his nickname is Great ”

I highly recommend Uemitsu. We planned our trip weeks in advance and he designed an itinerary that maximized our time. We saw a lot of beautiful tourist spots and some "secret" sites that many are not familiar with. Uemitsu or Kage is patient and an expert in what he does. He has a ready smile all the time partnered with superb customer service.

Uemitsu:
Dear Maynard, Thank you for your heartiful comments. I hope that your family had a good memory during your stay in Japan. Looking forward to seeing you again. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama

“ Great overview of Tokyo - customised ”

Our guide uemitsumet us on time at our hotel. The first thing we did was he assisted us with the best travel card option, and he recommended Pasmo. The tour was tailored to our needs as it was our first time in Tokyo, and we were looking for a guide to show us the sites and important must see things. It was my wife and Myself and our 2 teenagers. We travelled by rail, and walked miles covering Temples, shopping districts, electronic shops and other places of interest. Uemitsu caterd to our pace, and needs and was happy to rest when we wanted to. We stopped for lunch at a very nice plaza. We visited the must see areas, and often looked at things (Sky Tree For example) from the building next door.. great and free, and only something a local would know. He recommended times to come back to areas, and places or times to avoid. He also provided us with some snacks, and hand warmers, and showed us the best places to buy different Items we were chasing ( Flavoured Kit-Kats for half price). Absolutely value for money and we were exhausted. He gave us confidence to revisit many places over our next few days. Excellent tour guide.

Uemitsu:
Dear Brendan, Thank you for your great comments. I hope that your family will keep enjoying your stay in Tokyo this time and come back again in a couple of years. Best regards,

“ 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
