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.

“ Stressed free visits around Tokyo, Hakone, Kamakura and Enoshima Island ”

Toshihiro-san or uncle Toshi is like family bringing you around Tokyo. Not so formal but more like a friend. Great communication up to the travelling day and he answered a lot of questions from me. My family and I have some requirements due to our travelling pack but Toshi-san accomodate us completely. Hakone have beautiful mountains and excellent My Fuji view, Kamakura have beautiful shrines, Enoshima island have great view and night light show, and Tokyo was a blast. Toshi-san shared a lot of Japanese histories as we walk around the path. We had great farewell dinner eating Wagyu at Gyumon in Shibuya for our parting. I will separate my review for others convinience below; 1) Family with children with stroller/Pram Toshi-san helped us navigate the maze of Tokyo by helping to search fo... read more


Dear Azhari-san, Thank you for the detailed tour review, and calling me uncle Toshi. It was amazing three days for me to guide your family. Sometimes I made mistakes during the tour especially directions to go with stroller, but you generously assisted me many times. You gave me a lot of information like where you would like to visit and what you would like to do clearly. I could make preparation well. But we needed to change original itinerary because my estimation of spending time on each spot was not right. In spite of such situation, you seemed to enjoy the tour as if something unexpected is pleasure of travel. Thank you very much. I visited your country Malaysia once about ten years ago. It was interesting time to compare your tropical resort island Langkawi with Enoshima. ... read more

“ Very worthwhile ”

We had Toshi as a personal guide around Tokyo for 6 hours after we landed. He met us at our hotel and showed us some main attractions as well as less known ones. The day was not rushed, yet we saw many sights. We learned how to use the rail network system and Toshi related really well with our whole group, including 2 teenagers. Such a great investment and I would really recommend having his local expertise help to settle into a busy city. Thank you so much, we still talk about that great day!


Dear Tanya-san, Thank you for the glorious tour review and hiring me as a your tour guide in spite that you were very tired of early morning arrival after over night flight. I went to Australia several decades ago in 1985, and it was nice and useful information that you explained me how your country has changed. I was impressed with your good skill of using chopsticks. It was only 6 hours tour, but amazing time for me. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ The day around Tokyo ”

Had a fantastic day with Toshihiro-san as our private guide. He was very well planned and organised. Toshi knew exactly where to take us, very knowledgeable. We saw so much of the city that we would not have been able to see by ourselves. Highly recommend Toshi as your guide. Thanks again Toshi.., regards Steve and John


Dear Steve-san and John-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It is my pleasure to introduce this city Tokyo to the people in the world. I also enjoyed the tour. You sometimes asked me high-level questions about Japanese history and culture. I am relieved by reading your comment that I am knowledgeable. I felt that I need to study harder to explain Japanese history and culture more clearly. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Informative and relaxed tour of Tokyo ”

We had a great experience with Toshi, right from first contact with him he was very helpful in planning our trip. We managed to fit a lot into our tour seeing Asakusa, the Imperial Palace, MeijiJingu shrine, Tsukiji fish market, Ginza, Harajuku, Shibuya crossing and the statue of Hachi into one action packed day. Toshi very kindly researched music shops for our son before we came here and also made an effort to find a restaurant that suited our vegetarian and one person with a food allergy. As well as that he helped us to buy Shinkansen tickets for another trip and got us all sorted with pasmo tickets and learning our way around the metro system. We would highly recommend Toshi as a guide he is a very knowledgeable guide, never stressed and incredibly patient. Thank you again Toshi


Dear Katrina-san, Thank you very much for the excellent tour review. This was my second time visiting musical instruments store with tourists. Previous time was keyboards, this time was saxophones. I like jazz music. It was important experience for me to see various kinds of saxophones with you as you are musicians. You taught me a lot of things about playing music. Thank you for good opportunity. I enjoyed sightseeing with you. You are patient, it is not me. Thank you for coming to Japan in cold winter time in spite of opposite season in your country. Best regards, Toshihiro

“ Excellent Whirlwind 8+ Hour Tour of Tokyo ”

Toshihiro-san proposed a good itenary for a 8 Hour day tour of Tokyo. He was prompt and in communicating the itenary, costs, etc. We visited Imperial Palace/Garden, Sensoji Temple, Meiji Shrine, Fish Market Traditional shopping area etc. He provided cultural and historical context for the sites we visited. He met us at Narita Airport, took us on tour via subway, and accompanied us to Haneda Airport at the end of the tour. We couldn't have covered as much ground in the short time we had with out his knowledge of the subway system and his planning. He is flexible and was able to adjust the tour at the last minute when our plan to ship our baggage to Haneda fell thru.


Dear Ramesh-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I think that you are now back in San Francisco from Haneda. The tour was done during layover from your Asian tour to go back to USA. We needed to move from Narita to Haneda airport by two hours earlier than the departure time of your flight. No delay was allowable. That's why I asked you to hurry up several times. Owing to your patience and calmness, we could visit all places we planned and go to Haneda airport on time. I appreciate your decision of doing Tokyo sightseeing in spite of short stay. Next time, please come to Tokyo and various spots in Japan for two or three weeks. Best regards, Toshihiro
