“ A magical trip around Tokyo ”

We spent 2 days with Koichiro on a food lovers adventure. We had a few off the beaten paths requests and Koichiro by far exceeded our expectations. The planning of the trip and welcoming nature of Koichiro made our first trip to Tokyo feel like we had a friend in town to show us around. Koji has wonderful communications skills and takes great care for all of your needs and requests.


Dear Denver, Thank you for writing my review, it's truly great to hear from you! On the 2 days we visited Shoyu factories with a lot of food&drink tastings. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to deepen my knowledge of fermented food that I eat everyday - now I'm a big fan of the ingredient you sell! I'll keep learning so that I can be more useful for your next visit. Thank you! Koichiro

“ Great tour, great guide ”

My wife and I booked a full day with Koichiro. I highly recommend him as a guide. 1) Koichiro answered our questions before the tour about locations and cultural expectations to help make planning easy. 2) We tailored the day around sights that mattered to us, removing locations that we didn't desire or would see on our own. 3) Koichiro answered questions to help us plan the rest of our visit in Tokyo, including restaurant and shopping recommendations. We had a great visit with Koichiro - I would tour with him again if we return!


Dear Michael, Thank you for taking your time to write a review of me! It was honor to me to have been able to spend the day with you and Liz. Casual conversations when we were in transit will be my lasting memories. I shall see you again in the near future. Best, Koichiro

“ A friendly and interesting guide in Tokyo ”

Koji is a nice and friendly person that will do his best to accommodate you, he is also very knowledgeable and will make sure he answers all the questions/queries you may have. Koji is open minded and interested in other people’s cultures which makes touring as a solo traveler more enjoyable. Thank you Koji ! JC


Dear Jean-Claude, Thank you for taking your time to write a review of me! I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed the time with me and am glad that I could take you to the places we planned and local restaurants/bars that I highly recommend. I do appreciate your advice as an experienced businessman when we had sake at Japanese bars. Thank you for everything👍 Koji

“ I recommend Koichiro to be your guide ”

Since this was our first visit to Japan, it was great having a helpful guide like Koichiro. He was a wonderful choice for first timers like us. He met us at our hotel in Tokyo and was patient enough to wait for us as we get ready for the day ahead. Koichiro adjusted our original plan to accommodate our requests of places to go and things to do in Central Tokyo. He was extremely accommodating, polite, helpful and very reseachful. He took us to an Anime and Game shops in Akibahara that sells the things we are looking for and even went out his way to find a vintage action toy (which is something my partner have been looking forward to buy in Japan, the Voltes V). And then help us find a luggage we are looking for, he even helped us carry it until the end of the tour. He took pictures of us i... read more


Hi Cherry, Thank you for taking your time to write a positive and awesome review! I'm glad that I could help you get limited Voltes V and Lupin the Third figures, and lightest Rimowa suitcases. Also we had planty of chances to experience supreme Japanese food&drinks:) On that day, a very strong typhoon was approaching Japan and we were subject to occasional extremely violent wind and torrential rain, but when I reminisce about the day, everything can be felt magical because of that unusual event(in addition to great sake)! Now the great memories make up many of my thoughts in a day and give me incredible feelings each time when it comes to my mind. Thanks a million and do hope to see you&your partner to enjoy time again👍 Koichiro

“ A Horrible, Frustrating Two Days. Got Taken Advantage Of At Every Turn ”

Let me preempt this review by saying this is my second time hiring a guide through this website. My first experience with a completely different guide was excellent and paired with this guide's good reviews I was lured into a false sense of security. Little did I know, I was about to have the worst experience with a tour guide I had ever had in my life while getting taken advantage of at every turn. I originally booked this tour guide for 4 days on my week long trip to Japan, but after just two days I cancelled the remaining two days, because I had had enough. Up front, Koichiro comes off as very nice and friendly and eager to please, but I quickly began to realize that he was not what he seemed. Firstly, this guide has a tendency not to tell you anything straight out, he'll beat around th... read more


Dear Evaline, It's truly sad to know that you got hurt by me and my guiding style and that you ended up hating me as a person. Thank you for letting me know what you really disliked during the tour. I do apologize for that and I promise I've never done it with bad intentions to you and that I'll do my best so that it will never happen again in the future. I love guiding and best part of it is to see smiles of my guests and to see they like Japan more! I believe interaction with local people is the best part of traveling abroad and because I aspire to try to guide guests as my real friends with different backgrounds, I might sometimes lack respect and consideration. I apologize that I talked blatantly about my political stance and opinions which is opposite from yours because I felt you wer... read more
