“ Great day with Toshi in Tokyo! ”

My Girlfriend and I recently visited Japan for the first time. We started in Osaka/Japan where we hired a guide from TripleLights in that area. We had such a great time with her, when we got to Tokyo, we decided to use TripleLights again, and chose Toshi. Toshi was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and confident. Those of you who don’t know Tokyo, it can be quite a daunting task to navigate your way to all the points of interest, as there are so much to see and every destination is a minor challenge to find (even with a smart phone and TripAdvisor at hand). A lot of time and walking can be wasted as you’re searching for your destination. From the very beginning, Toshi had planned out our route based on the time that we requested, and she knew every little turn, short cuts, and even which elevators we should take from the subway station, etc. she has an immense amount of knowledge about history and culture. And you can tell that she genuinely enjoys her job. She took us to an amazing sushi restaurant at the fish market for lunch. We went to so many places in our relatively short time together, all the way from the Imperial Palace to Tokyo Bay to Shibuya. And of course, the Owl cafe in Harajaku was super fun! We highly recommend Toshi as your guide in Tokyo.
