Hello. Thank you for your interest in Japan. I am a tour guide living in central Tokyo area. My hobby is travel, taking photos, watching sports, etc. I have visited more than thirty countries in the world. While I was in overseas countries, I encountered a lot of troubles. But many people at my travel destination kindly helped me and I enjoyed the sightseeing. To do something in return for their kindness, I became a tour guide. Not only standard popular tourism, but I create also customized tours to meet the requests from individual travelers. I experienced a tour guide for the people from various countries in the world. Tokyo would be one of the most exciting tourist spots due to its tradition and modernity. I would like to show you unique aspects of Japan. Please tell me what kind of sightseeing you would like to enjoy. Feel free to contact me.read more

Toshihiro-san is a very thoughtful person. He answered my questions and gave me advice many months before the actual trip. His advice save us money. We met him at the end of our trip to Japan. We were tired with sore legs. He was kind and patient. Very, very flexible. I don’t think we would have made it to Kamakura via Enoden train without him. He showed us the best places to take pictures. Very knowledgeable and humble in the same time. We learned about the places we visited, but also about Japan history, politics and customs. I can keep writing but I agree with all the other 5 star reviews. We appreciated having him as our guide in Tokyo and we highly recommend him.
Dear Diana-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. It was brilliant four days for me that I guided Tokyo and Kamakura for your wonderful family. Unfortunately it was rainy season in Tokyo, but we flexibly adjusted itinerary and enjoyed in-house attractions like digital museum on rainy day. Sometimes your family members had different intention to choose the places to visit. But you organised well and made appropriate plans according to the situation. Your support was great. And I also enjoyed conversation with your family members, especially about sports and music. You taught me Delta Blues as new genre for me. I listened to some of them in YouTube. It is passionate and exciting music. Thank you very much again for many things. Best regards, Toshihiro
We were with Toshi for four wonderful days. He was very accommodating, flexible, and most of all a gentleman. Toshi took us, a family of four plus my elderly mother in-law, to all the planned locations and more. The more parts because we always had unplanned shopping and eating stops along the way, we are in Tokyo so had to do that. He always met us promptly at our hotel in the morning and dropped us off at our hotel at the end of the day. Toshi is a wealth of knowledge about Japan history and cultures. We would not being seeing a lot of Japan without Toshi guidance, we would be lost for sure. Will definitely hire Toshi again if we are in Tokyo.
Dear Marc-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. You are absolutely nice daddy and offered various kinds of services to your family members like shopping, sightseeing and eating. You have a lot of knowledge about Japanese culture, especially knife. It was also happy moment for me that you finally found the excellent knife made by one authentic artist in Japan and purchased it. I could learn more about Japanese secret crafts and technology. At Chureito Pagoda in Yamanashi, I had said that we needed to climb up 200 steps. But real number was 398 steps. In spite of my mistake, you laughed me and climbed up to Pagoda. You were very helpful. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi spent a day with my family and I. We saw so many wonderful sites in Japan. He was prompt to arrive at our hotel Extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Country and seemed to have a passion for the stories of past Shoguns and Samari which my family loved. A true gentleman from start to finish. Do not hesitate in booking.
Dear Cyrus-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was also nice moment for me to guide your excellent family around Tokyo. You are British person, now living in Spain. I enjoyed conversation with you about various matters like life-style, culture, food and sports in Europe. And you visited Korea just before came to Japan. I was surprised as you know well about the difference between Japan and Korea. You will be in Japan for several more days. Please enjoy. Best regards, Toshihiro
We really enjoyed our 2 days exploring Tokyo and Kameruka with Toshihiro. He was very courteous, and mindful of our wishes and needs. His recommendations regarding what to see and do during the rest of our time in Japan were very helpful. It was great to have the knowledge and guidance of a local, with a very good background regarding the significance and history of the sights we were seeing.
Dear Lynn-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I am happy to hear that you really enjoyed the two days tour of Tokyo and Kamakura, and that my recommendations for other days were helpful. Once you and Alan-san had different interests on what to do like shopping or seeing shrine. It was very difficult to do both in limited time. But you organized well by making short tour plans for each other with the clear meeting point. It was helpful for the tour guide. Thank you for your cooperation. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshiro was kind and patient with us (Family of 5 incl my mom who has issues walking far due to foot pain). He made sure we take elavator/escalators as much as possible. We had to change the itinerary as we go depending on the weather and if my mom could still carry on. We would not have seen the sights in two days without a private guide and Toshiro made it possible. Thank you Toshiro San for the excellent service.
Dear Denimar-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. Before coming to Tokyo, you had been in western parts of Japan like Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and Hiroshima. You had already visited many temples and shrines in old capitals. We chose unique spots in Tokyo during two-days tour. I thought that these places were attractive for you. Unfortunately it was rainy sometimes. But you and your family members were very helpful to decide the tour course flexibly. I could do a tour guide without difficulty in spite of bad weather. I must express my gratitude to you. Best regards, Toshihiro
