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.

“ 3days not that enjoyable ”

Tosh hijiro was pleasant. Punctual. English needs to improve, did not appear to understand some of the places we would like to have visited. Told to far or to much walking. We suggested several times using taxi but he would not listen, also Told to expensive! It was not for our guide to determine what we could afford Overall we were very disappointed.


Dear Gwen-san, Thank you very much for the frank comments on the tour review. And I sincerely apologize that you were very disappointed to the tour in spite that you had been looking forward to the sightseeing from many months ago. Your comments are very helpful and useful for my future to become a capable tour guide. I strongly feel that I need to improve my skills. Thank you again for the honest opinion. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Lovely and Helpful ”

I was very happy with Toshihiro as a guide. He was a tremendous help with sorting out my Rail Pass and explaining the transportation system. We started at Hokusai museum which is a must. He knows a lot of history, will avoid the tourist traps and accompanied me back to my hotel at the end of a busy day.


Dear Lucero-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. You must have been very tired as your flight to Tokyo was tremendously delayed. But you joined my tour as scheduled. It was my first time to visit Hokusai museum. It was wonderful place to see one of the excellent painters in Japan. Thank you very much for your patience and new opportunity for me. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Walking tour of Tokyo highlights ”

Toshihiro guided round some of the highlights of Tokyo on foot and public transport which was very interesting. He was informative and very happy to give us plenty of time for photos and looking at whatever we wanted. The sights were all fascinating and colourful. We did not want to go to museums and preferred to wander around the places popular with Japanese people. We had a lovely day and enjoyed our time with Toshihiro.


Dear Gill-san and Tony-san, Thank you for the fine tour review. You arrived at Tokyo by cruise ship in early morning and did Tokyo tour. I think that you were tired but I hope that you enjoyed the city watching in Tokyo. It was nice discussion for me to compare London with Tokyo, and Queen with Emperor. I could learn many things about UK and England. In some tourist spots, there were too many people. I hope that the photos would be good enough as memory of Tokyo. Best regards, Toshihiro

Toshihiro gave us a great introduction to Tokyo, and built a tour around our interests. Highly recommended.


Dear Katrina-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. You were especially interested in historical area in Tokyo. In Japan, emperor changed in this May. You gave me useful information on UK history and queen. Thank you. Best regards, Toshihiro
