“ Energetic knowledgeable accommodating young man! ”

Enjoyed our day with Koichiro navigating our way around a large, crowded city. He took us to some of the quieter outskirts of the city and we explored some of Tokyos quirkier sites. A handsome young man, and very helpful to guiding us for the next day via subway directions so we could explore on our own without getting lost!

“ A really amazing day. highly recommend. ”

We had a fantastic day touring Tokyo with Kim. He contacted me shortly after booking asking me what kind of places we wanted to see. We exchanged a few emails to setup the list of places. He met us on time in the lobby of our hotel and we toured the city together. He is very knowledgeable about Tokyo, its history, culture, and customs. He is very easy to talk to. He lived in USA for several years so he is fluent in English. He did more than just the tour. We were going to Mt. Fuji the next day and my girlfriend needed warm clothes. Kim took us shopping, and when the outfit she liked wasn't in her size on the rack he discussed with the staff and they found her size. All around a wonderful experience that set the good mood for the rest of our vacation in Tokyo.

“ Koichiro was a great companion ”

This being our first trip to Tokyo we wanted to cover a lot of places and yet get a taste of the local flavour and the cutting edge Japanese sensibility. So while we did see tourist attractions like the Imperial Gardens and the Meiji Shrine we were also interested in seeing contemporary art and design and get a taste of authentic Japanese cuisine. Koichiro was able to navigate our schedule and needs and introduce us to great pork ramen, one of the best meals we had, expose us to the Doraemon exhibition and take us to the Tadao Ando exhibition. All in all he was an excellent resource who helped us achieve our aim and guided us through the unfamiliarity of Tokyo with ease and speed! We wish him well and hope the future brings him great fortune!

“ Enjoy Tokyo Like a Local ”

I don't want to repeat all the other reviews but Koichiro was really a professional guide who went above and beyond his role. I planned my short trip to Tokyo to shop for souvenirs and electronics. As a tourist who couldn't speak Japanese, such undertaking was not easy. Thankfully, Koichiro planned everything for me so that we can visit many stores efficiently. He also helped me avoid tourist stores and visit stores where you can buy quality goods. When I wanted to buy tea cups, instead of buying low quality but expensive souvenir cups, he brought me to an art store where I found quality tea cups for a bargain. His style was really warm and laid back. He was very accommodating to my requests and (sudden) schedule changes. When I wanted to eat fugu at last minute, he happily obliged and brought me to an amazing fugu restaurant. My trip with Koichiro was really different than group tours where we need to stick to schedule and sometimes feel rushed. It was very personalized and Koichiro really took time and a great deal of effort to get to know my preferences beforehand and researched about it. For young travellers (and those who are still young at heart) Koichiro was a really great travel companion. During my trip, I felt like visiting a friend who showed me around. Sometimes the highlight of the day was my conversation with Koichiro. He was really candid and I learned a lot about Japan. He helped me with my shopping bags too! Tokyo is a very big and vibrant city that has something for everyone. However, one drawback was that little information was provided in English. One can spend hours researching online about places to visit in Tokyo but most information are written in Japanese. Even a lot of Tripadvisor reviews are written in Japanese. Choosing a good restaurant from an English blog or website means that you'll spend a lot of your time waiting in line with fellow tourists even though the store next door might be just as good and cheaper. This is why travelling with Koichiro helps a great deal. He knows a lot more about Tokyo than English blogs and he can do better research than we can. Plus he can help you communicate and explain things to you so you can really focus on experiencing Tokyo like a local.
