“ Excellent guide! ”

Hiroyuki was better than the best need I say more. He is funny patient and thrives to make his customer happy. And creates an itenrary that is perfect to our needs. He took us all over town. Fish market, haroujouko & Ginza. And we eat at a great Hibashi restaurant. And we didn’t feel rushed.

“ Lovely Trip - a view of new and old. ”

Hiroyuki was very kind. The tour he brought us on was great and each stop had significance. We anchored the trip with the Shinjuku Gyoen and how its role changed from an aristocrats residence to an imperial garden after the Meiji restoration, along with viewing of the cherry blossoms and some great photo opportunities. We walked past the gymnasium built for the 1964 olympics and the site of the new stadium for the 2020 olympics. Even briefly stopping at the Meiji Memorial Picture gallery we learned about the life and role of the Meiji Emporer and the changes he brought about. We learned about the poetry of the Emporer and his court at the Nezu museum, we experienced the modern culture that was made possible by this history as we walked along Omote-sando and Takeshita street, and it was all tied together at our visit to Meiji Jingu, where we was prints of the images at the Meiji Memorial Picture gallery, the poetry displayed by the Meiji Emporer, the potential changes to the old-style station for the 2020 olympics. He was a very kind guide, my 5-year old daughter was very impressed by him, the trip was very well planned and we stayed right on schedule even though we had to make an emergency bathroom hunt. The food was great, and we had a lot of opportunities for great pictures and stops in tourist shops without needing impede the tour. It made a wonderful memory.

“ Great tour of Tokyo ”

As first time visitors to Japan (parents and 2 teenagers), we hired Hiroyuki to help us simplify and streamline the logistics of getting around Tokyo. We wanted to spend time seeing things, not figuring out how to get from point A to point B. We also wanted to see some of Tokyo "behind the scenes" or "off the beaten path". We had a good sense from various books of what we wanted to see, but weren't sure of the best order in which to see them. We sent our list of Hiroyuki and he organized it into three full days of touring, including picking out great spots for meals and taking us into some back streets to see how people live on a daily basis. After our initial plan was established, he was flexible to adapt it as our pre-trip discussions with friends said "you've got to see this". He figured out where to add these new things and made recommendations about what to drop. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites, got us around the train system smoothly and was a pleasure to be with. His written and spoken English is very good...he's got an amazing vocabulary for someone for whom English is not their native language. But interestingly, he sometimes had a hard time understanding simple questions from us. But that in no way hindered our experience. You can be confident Hiroyuki will take good care of you.

“ Excellent cutomized kid friendly Pokémon Go walking tour. ”

My two boys had an excellent time roaming Odaiba searching for Pokémon. Hiroyuki prepared an excellent itinerary based on our requirements. From the the subway rides to the Tonkatsu lunch and ending up at the Pokémon Mega Center in Ikebukuro. He also explained all the interesting sites along the way. Definitely a great experience. Thanks, Hiroyuki!
