“ great tour!! ”

This is our first time visiting Tokyo and we are very thankful that we chose Triple Lights. Our tour guide, Uemitsu Kageyama, provided us with an excellent experience!! He has our highest recommendation!! We had many things we wanted to see while in Tokyo and we really appreciated that the tour could be specifically designed toward our interests. Also we appreciated that the tour began and ended at our hotel. We were staying at the Tokyo Hilton in Shinjuku. The first stop on our tour was snapping a quick picture with the statue of Hachiko the dog followed by the scramble intersection at Shibuya crossing. We made the crossing and then our guide took us to a great spot above to take photos. We enjoyed the Meiji-jingu shrine (Shintoism) within a majestic forest. This was a beauti... read more


Dear Chris, Thank you for your detailed comments and evaluation. I am happy to know that your family could move from Shijuku to Maihama by yourselves. This means that you already acquired the skill to enjoy the stay in Tokyo in one day. Hope that your family will come back again in the near future. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

We toured several Tokyo highlights with Uemitsu for 1-1/2 days. He responded quickly and was flexible in planning our trip in advance. We found him to be knowledgable, friendly and cheerful. And, his English is good. I highly recommend his services Bill Payne Henderson, NV

“ You made our visit to Tokyo to an unforgettable experience ”

M. Uemitsu is very friendly and punctual, he has spend much more time with us than eight hours contractually foreseen and had an open ear for our points of interests. Thanks to him, we have seen a lot more than the classic highlights of Tokyo: we were submerged in the reality of Shinjuku and Shibuya, discovered shrines and museum off the beaten paths, were taken to scenic platforms an outsider wouldn't imagine they existed, etc. Many, many thanks for his effort.


Dear Edgard, Thank you for your comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in Tokyo, and hope that you also had fun to view cherry flowers in Aomori. Looking forward to seeing you in the near future. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama

“ Great Cherry Blossom Tour and city ”

We had our first day in Tokyo with Uemitsu. He was very informative and friendly and very helpful in showing us how to use the metro. The highlight was when he took us to Ueno Park for the cherry blossom.


Liz, Thank you for your comments. I hope you will come back next year to enjoy cherry blossoms in different parks. Best regards, Uemitsu
