My name is Yoshi.
I’ve been living Tokyo area more than 40 years. I also lived in the US 6 years.
Previously I was importing coffee system from the Netherlands. I have many friend in the US and in Europe. When they came to Japan, they enjoyed hanging out with me. I also enjoyed showing them my favorite places around Tokyo.
I decided to start guiding foreign tourist after I retired from a coffee company.
I can show you real local people and culture through tailored tour for you.
Please find below review one of my guest made for my tour.
“Yoshi was open about his view of the Japanese culture and happy to answer any questions. He was very down to earth and authentic, intelligent, articulate and candid about his thoughts which we really loved. Yoshi made the experience and though we would have enjoyed town on our own, (had we even known about it), we'd never have really understood what we were seeing and probably not found half the shops we visited. If you want to open a window into the Japanese culture without being on a big ""tour"", this is great for all ages and people who really love to travel and try to understand the culture wherever they are. I cannot say enough about Yoshi. “
Let’s explore Japan with me!
