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

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit of Tokyo with Toshihiro. He met us at our hotel and planned an interesting and comprehensive itinerary of Tokyo highlights with great attention to detail. We had a lovely time discussing Japanese history and culture, and he found a delicious and affordable restaurant for lunch where we tried shabu-shabu for the first time. He is a very considerate guide and thought of everything from nice places with a view to sit and rest for a moment, to detailed written instructions on how to return to our hotel (he kindly offered to also accompany us back to our hotel but as it was nearby we could return on the train very easily). He was very responsive through the message system and gave us precise information about metro ticket costs in advance and how to have the best... read more
Dear Lauren-san, Thank you very much for the review of the tour. It is my great honor to have introduced intellectual people like you to various sightseeing spots in Tokyo. You are the first Luxembourg person I met in my life. I have to say thank you as I got a lot of knowledge about one European excellent country, Luxembourg. This time, you came to Japan mainly for the business purpose and stayed at only Tokyo. Japan has other excellent valuable places to visit like Kamakura, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima, etc. Next time, please enjoy these places in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro-san and I were able to stay in contact using the TripleLight email service to plan and communicate prior to our Tokyo trip. Toshihiro not only accomodated all of our requested trips but stayed extremely flexible in both times and locations. He was invaluable in helping us set up our Shinkansen trips and training arrangements for Osaka and Kyoto as well. Very knowledgeable and patient as we asked him many shopping questions and he was invaluable in finding many items that were on our shopping list for our family back home. I highly recommend Toshihiro-san....extremely kind and thoughtful!
Dear Mike-san and Shirley-san, Thank you for the review. It was wonderful experience for me to visit many places in Tokyo with you. I was a little bit surprised as you drank a lot of beer during lunch time. I was impressed as you cherish your sons, daughters, grandsons and granddaughters from the bottom of the heart. I hope that you enjoy the rest of the tour in Japan, and I believe that your family members will be satisfied with various souvenirs you purchased here in Tokyo. Best regards, Toshihiro
I had a wonderful time with Toshihiro during my one day tour of Tokyo. I did not know which sites to visit so Toshihiro recommended 4 great sites in Tokyo and also sent the detailed itinerary ahead of time. He explained cultural and religious significance of each sites. He had a great suggestion for our lunch. I also got the taste of Tokyo subway and train system. I don't think I would have managed it without Toshihiro. I enjoyed my time with Toshihiro. Thank you.
Dear Prasanna-san, Thank you for the tour review. You are busy with your business in Tokyo. It was important one day off while you are here. I am happy if my tour guide contributed your understanding on Japan. It was also wonderful time for me to guide an excellent person like you. I hope that you will come to Japan again, with main purpose of sightseeing. Best regards, Toshihiro
Thank you Toshihito for showing us such a great time:)
Dear Masha-san, It was my precious time to visit Asakusa and Ueno with your family. I am sure that you enjoyed the stay in Japan in this hot July and August. Thank you very much for giving me an opportunity to work as a tour guide for your excellent family. Best regards, Toshihiro
We contacted Toshihiro through the TripleLights Service. He responded promptly and provided suggestions for a customized two day tour. He met us at our hotel at the pre-arranged time. He was kind, courteous and provided us with excellent information at all of our stops. At the end of our first day, my husband mentioned that he enjoyed music instrument stores and the next day Toshihiro had researched and found a very interesting location that was easily incorporated into our pre-planned tour and gave my husband the opportunity to play with some vintage keyboards (one of his passions). Toshihiro helped us navigate our way through the metro system, showed us how to purchase tickets and gave us several recommendations for the remainder of our stay in Tokyo. Thank you Toshihiro-san for al... read more
Dear Laurie-san, Thank you for the review. It was my wonderful time to guide your family as all family member are nice people. It was easy for me to make a customized tour because your interests and preference are clear. I am happy if I could contribute to make your travel in Tokyo more memorable time. I was impressed that your family have excellent technique on playing keyboard like Keith Emerson. I guess that Matthew has improved his skill of using chopsticks. If you have a chance, please come to Japan again. Best regards, Toshihiro
