On our first full day in Tokyo Toshi took us around on a fabulous "little bit of everything" tour which included the Senso-Ji Temple and Nakamise Arcade, Tsukiji Fish Market, Hamarikyu Garden, Imperial Palace, Ginza Shopping and Omotesando Shopping Districts and the Shibuya Crossing. We even enjoyed lunch together Japanese style sitting on mats in Tsukiji. Toshi was personable and knowledgeable and we enjoyed conversation about everything from Japanese culture to economics. He was timely and polite and never once did we feel rushed. He met us at the hotel in the morning and took us back to the hotel at the end of our day. He also showed us how to navigate the subway system for the next couple of days on our own. It was truly a delight to spend the day with Toshi!
Dear Grace-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. We visited various places in Tokyo. You surveyed well about nice tourists spots. Unfortunately we couldn't visit all places you described, but you understood that the itinerary was effectively organized. In Tsukiji, my original plan was to sit on normal table. But Tsukiji market was extremely crowded because it was almost the end of the year. We needed to sit on Japanese Tatami mat room. It was difficult area for western people. But you accepted it positively as Japanese style experience. You were very cooperative. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was an extremely professional and extremely personable tour guide. My fiancé and I were in Tokyo for the first time and wanted a tour to get acquainted with the city. We are so glad that we found Toshihiro who took us all over the city and showed us a lot of the sites and gave us the confidence to explore the rest of Tokyo on our own. Pros of Toshihiro: - passion for his job - on time pick up - in depth knowledge on the history of Tokyo - personality that is laid back and fun to spend a day with - concern for what we wanted to do Cons: - none to speak of, not a single con to the tour. Highly recommend Toshihiro!!!
Dear Michael-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. In Japan, new year's days are very special. Many shops, restaurants and tourists' spots are closed. But some areas like Shinto shrines and Buddhism temples are extremely crowded because most of Japanese people go there for the new year's wish. Your tour was done during this special time. It was very inconvenient time for tourists from overseas countries. But you were patients and supported me well. I know I need to express gratitude for your such behavior. I am also glad to hear that you could explore the rest of Tokyo on your own. Summer time in Japan is very different. Please come to Tokyo again in warm season. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro walked us thru Tokyo public transportation from Suica card purchase to visiting Tokyo station as a practice run for our First trip on the Shinkansen scheduled the following day. It was well worth it to have him as a guide as well as photographer. At the end of the day, we learned to ride the metro, learned interesting facts about ueno, the fish market, and had many great photos. Thanks Toshihiro!
Dear Tri-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. You are a street photographer and you have a very expensive camera. To tell the truth, I was not sure whether the photos I took for you were good or bad. I am relieved to hear that I was good as a photographer. I enjoyed walking with you and I learned what is nice photo targets in Tokyo for the American street photographer. It was important experience for me. Thank you again! Best regards, Toshihiro
I absolutely enjoyed my tour with Toshihiro. He developed an itinerary to match my interest with history and animals (Hachiko). Since this was my first visit to Japan, Toshihiro met me at my hotel. We used the train/subway to travel around Tokyo. He took me to the old part of the city and explained about the temple and the gods and the shoguns. We also visited Shibuya for the Hachiko statue and the "crazy crossing." We had a wonderful lunch, Shabu Shabu, and then visited two Hard Rock Cafes because I collect souvenirs from the cafes where ever I am in the world. At the end of the tour, Toshihiro took me back to my hotel. I hope to visit Tokyo again and will definitely hire Toshihiro again.
Dear Susan-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I also enjoyed guiding you through the various spots in Tokyo. You are interested in history. I explained mostly the uniqueness of Japanese history which would be interesting for American people. You also like dogs, which is a popular pet for Japanese people. Pets shops and animal cafes would also be peculiar items in Japan. You also expressed wide curiosity for Japanese food, life styles, souvenirs and many things. You pointed out the difference of the Japanese Hard Rock Cafes from American ones. You showed me conspicuous elements of Japanese culture. It was great help for me as a tour guide. I hope that you will come to Japan again. Please hire me again as a guide then. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had a very nice day with Toshi. He was kind and patient and showed us all around Tokyo and told us many interesting things about Japanese culture and history. He helped us navigate the subwa/train system which will be very helpful the rest of our time in Tokyo.
Dear Bernadette-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. You are from New York that I visited several times. I really enjoyed conversation with you. You have good knowledge about sports and my favorite music jazz. You informed me of a lot of interesting anecdotes. It was nice discussion especially about the difference between New York and Tokyo. I could do a guide with a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Thank you to my guide Toshihiro for introducing me to Tokyo’s most exiting and interesting places!
Dear Ligita-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. It was my first experience to do the guide for the person from Denmark. I really enjoyed conversation with you. You researched well on the tourist spots in Tokyo. I guess that you would have liked to visit more places. Next time, please come to Japan in cherry blossoms season. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had an amazing day with Mr. Toshihiro! Not only was his English very good, he is very knowledgeable and explains everything very clearly. He is also very flexible and extremely efficient in managing our time. I fully recommend him, you will not be disappointed!
Dear Clarence-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. All the members of your family came to Japan before. You know very much about Japanese culture and food. You know how to enjoy Tokyo well. It was really nice and fruitful moment for me to talk with all of you. I am really glad to hear that you had an amazing day with me. I hope that you are fond of Japan more by this visit. Best regards, Toshihiro
We were very lucky to have Toshihiro-san as our guide for Tokyo. He was very knowledgeable (from soccer/football to history to current events). He spoke very good English and went out of his way to explain and answer all our questions. He also helped us with our JR Pass and seat reservations- truly appreciated! We covered a lot in the 8hrs that he was with us- in fact, it was a little more than 8hrs but he didn’t complain and was happy to extend. Thanks very much, Toshihiro-san. I would highly recommend him to any first timers in Tokyo.
Dear Cynthia-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I enjoyed showing tourist spots in Tokyo to great people in your family. It was happy moment for me. You made a nice atmosphere as if I were a friend of you. I could do a tour guide with very comfortable feeling. And I was surprised as your family knows very much about soccer/football. I heard that basket ball is the most popular sport in Philippines, but you know soccer/football well even for Japanese players more than me. I really enjoyed conversations with you. I hope that Japan will become your favorite country and you come to Tokyo again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
We spent two days with Toshihiro-san. One day in Tokyo and second day in Kamakura. It was raining very much in Tokyo, but he helped us see the places with ease. He was very patient with my toddler son and took him to Owl/Porcupine Cafe. My son loved that place. His itinerary actually covers a lot of Tokyo, even though we don't realize it at first.He helped me in getting Shinkanzen ticket by talking to the agents in Japanese. He also helped me in purchasing some Japanese sweets. In between on train journeys, he used to explain the history behind next destination. Thank you so much Toshihiro-san, it was lovely meeting you.
Dear Baby-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. Unfortunately it was rainy on the first day of our tour in Tokyo, and you couldn't use a stroller for your son. But you were very patient and informed me of your family's interests clearly. I could make an alternative tour plan for rainy day easily. I was really relieved that your son enjoyed himself with owls, hedgehogs and dogs in the animal cafe. It was difficult to explain Japanese sweets, but you helped me kindly to express the taste. I must appreciate your cooperation during the tour. I hope that you will come to Japan again in the future. I recommend at the end of March to see beautiful cherry blossoms. I would like to see how your son will have grown up. Best regards, Toshihiro
Recently we had a very limited amount of time in Tokyo while on a layover. Toshihiro was able to put together an itinerary that worked for our schedule and gave us a taste of Tokyo. He was very communicative and pleasant to spend time with. I would highly recommend his services
Dear Joshua-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. Your stay in Japan was very short as a layover back from Australia to US. You did a Tokyo tour only five hours before going to Narita airport. But I need to appreciate your decision of having done Tokyo sightseeing in such short time. You had good knowledge about Japanese culture and history. You definitely like Japanese food. Please come to Japan again next time with more than two weeks. Best regards, Toshihiro
It was a very wet day in Tokyo, so Toshihiro and I decided to start with the Edo Museum. This was a good decision as it gives the history of Tokyo and it is a lovely museum. We then walked around some of the areas I had wanted to visit, but the weather was not good. Toshihiro was adaptable and very informative
Dear Louise-san, Thank you for the tour review. Unfortunately it was heavy rainy day. Original plan was going to Japanese garden, but it was not recommended to visit on the strong rainy day. I thought that indoor Edo Museum was much better than outside walking. Thank you for the acceptance of sudden itinerary change. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was everything my husband and I could have wished for in a tour guide during our honeymoon to Japan. Prior to our trip, Toshihiro was very responsive and accommodated all of our requests when creating our itinerary. He also gave his own feedback on what was worth and not worth including. He picked us up from our hotel early in the morning on our first day after arriving and led us on a day full of sightseeing. When we had some last minute changes we wanted to make to our itinerary, he was super flexible and made changes accordingly. We had a wonderful day with Toshihiro seeing the East Side of Tokyo and navigating the subway system. He brought us to an amazing stall at the fish market where my husband had what he claims to be the best fatty tuna he has ever had. Toshihiro was a p... read more
Dear Nicole-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I think it is truly honorable that I could work as a tour guide for your honeymoon. You surveyed well about Tokyo before coming to Japan. You were very cooperative to create the itinerary by informing me of your favorite style of the tour and explaining me clearly about food you eat. It was easy and fun for me to make a travel plan flexibly for you according to the weather condition or progress of the tour. Actually I enjoyed two days tour of both Tokyo and Hakone with you because you knew well about Japanese history and culture, and asked me insightful questions. It was really fruitful conversation for me. Coincidentally your father and mother came to Japan at almost same time, and you introduced me to your parents. You ... read more
Toshihiro-San has a commanding knowledge of the historical landmarks of Tokyo and provided a very fun tour of the areas that we’re interested in. His service for navigating the subway system was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the tour tremendously due to his guidance. Thanks a lot Toshihiro-San! We highly recommend him as a tour guide.
Dear Dayna-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. Unfortunately it was a rainy day in Tokyo. But owing to your understanding and patience, I could offer the customized fun tour for you. I was impressed with your good skill of taking photos. I appreciate your attitude of trying various Japanese food. It was also a fun day for me. Please come to Japan again. I recommend at the end of March to take photos of beautiful cherry blossoms. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi was an excellent tour guide. He is knowledgeable, informative, kind, and patient. My family and I are delighted to have his guidance during our visit to Tokyo. His service for just navigating Subway system alone is worthy, Japan subway system can be very overwhelming even for those who are used to NY subway. We booked Toshi for our tour of Tokyo on the 2nd day and 4th day of our stay, which we throughly enjoyed. My children wished that Toshi were with us when went out by ourselves:-) We highly recommend Toshi to anyone who visiting Tokyo.
Dear Tammy-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I am relieved to hear that you were delighted by my guide in Tokyo. You already visited some areas by yourselves before my tour. I needed to select other places. But you informed me clearly what kind of places you would like to visit with me. As there are two children in your family, I mainly chose popular spots among young people to visit in both east and west parts of Tokyo during two days. I felt that your family people treated me as your friend or relative. I could do the tour with very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was great navigating the different places in Tokyo that we wanted to see . He was very informative in many areas but also interested in finding out about Australia . We had a great day including lunch at a sushi train which was delicious and very cheap . We would thoroughly recommend him . Thanks for a great first day in Tokyo .
Dear Anne-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was my honor that I could do a guide for you on the first day in Tokyo. I really enjoyed walking the city with you. I hope that my suggestion offered during the tour would have been helpful during your stay for the sightseeing in Tokyo. I also enjoyed the conversation with you about your country Australia and your home town Adelaide. I could get useful information. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had already arrived in Tokyo and found it a little difficult to get the most out of the city on our own. We managed to book Toshihiro for the next day! We had a really nice day, basically following his suggested itinerary which was very efficient and well timed. We could have seen many of the sights ourselves but getting some history and guidance made the experience much better. We especially enjoyed the tour of Tsukiji fish market!
Dear Anders-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You suddenly booked me the day before the tour and I made a quick itinerary by your requests. I am relieved to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Yes, Japan has very unique history and culture. I am happy as you understood well about these special features of Japan. I must appreciate your attitudes of trying to accept the life style of Japanese people, especially you ate various kind of sushi. Please come to Japan again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
I had very good experience with my guide, Toshihiro. He is very responsive from my very first stage of planning to the finalizing the itineraries. I learned a lot of Tokyo’s past and present from him, which I would otherwise have not been able to learn from any books. He has also been very flexible too regarding the schedule. He also introduced me to more authentic Japanese food. I recommend Toshihiro to anyone who wishes to have more depth of traveling experiences in Tokyo. I am very grateful for all of your efforts, Toshihiro! You has made my stay in Tokyo more enjoyable.
Dear Linda-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You investigated well about tourists spots in Tokyo and understand various incidents in Japanese history. It was amazing two days for me to show many interesting and exciting areas in the city. You tried eating unique Japanese food. It was a really nice challenge. You took wonderful photos especially in Japanese gardens with autumn leaves of changed color. You were cheerful and walked up stairways at train stations although most people used escalators. I thought that American people usually don't walk so long distance, but you are different. You corrected my misunderstanding. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Excellent knowledge, punctual, explained the subway and helped us with sorting our JR train tickets. Very good at explained history of Tokyo, recommended excellent place at Tsukiji Markets. Nothing was too, was very patient and would recommend to anyone.
Dear Darryl-san & Kay-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I was impressed as you had good curiosity to experience Japanese culture like eating sushi including sea urchin and visiting a hedgehog cafe. I enjoyed showing you historical monuments and modern interesting spots in Tokyo. I felt that you like sports very much. Please come to Japan again next year to see Olympics to support Australia. Best regards, Toshihiro
I spent my first day in Tokyo with Toshihiro. He is so knowledgeable, informative and kind. Really knows his way sround so we covered a lot of territory. He took the time to customize an itinerary for me and made sure that everything ran smoothly. And he taught me a lot. Thoroughly enjoyed it all. I would highly recommend Toshihiro to anyone and feel lucky that I toured with him.
Dear Roxanne-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. It was a central Tokyo tour and we needed to change the course because of the ceremony related to the new emperor. But you understood the situation well and you were very patient. Thank you very much for your cooperation. This year in Tokyo, autumn leaves color change of trees is delayed owing to warm weather. I hope that you will see beautiful yellow and red leaves in other areas of Japan. Best regards, Toshihiro
He was very informative and attentive. He deferred to our wishes as to where we wanted to visit. Always offered to take our pictures Very polite and gave us an excellent 2 day tour. Thank you toshi San.
Dear Carrie-san and Julie-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was also exciting two days for me to visit many spots in Tokyo and Kamakura. You are from Hawaii, my favorite place. It was my happy moment that you explained me how the life in the big island is. I think that you will come to Japan again in near future. I would like to show you other interesting places then. Best regards, Toshihiro
We were in Tokyo for three days but wanted a good one day introduction to the city before venturing out on our own. After researching many tours and guides we chose Toshihiro. He created an itinerary based on our requests and it was perfect. Tokyo is an amazing city and Toshihiro is an excellent guide who provided us with a wealth of information. It was truly a memorable experience! Thank you, Toshihiro!
Dear Helen-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You are very familiar with Japanese culture. Especially I was impressed with your husband's knowledge about woodworking and hand tools. I was relieved that he could purchase one Japanese wood carving knife which he was looking for. It was also good opportunity for me to understand Japanese crafts and artifacts more. I hope that you will come to Japan again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is an excellent guide. Meeting us on our first day in Japan. Constantly check that he had not lost us which would be very easy with the crowds. Keeping us well informed on train stops and duration of journey. Changing itinerary as it was raining. Good pace never felt rushed. Enjoyed seeing Tokyo in Toshihiro's company. Have booked Toshihiro again to see more of Tokyo when we return.
Dear Kate-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You investigated well about tourists spots in Tokyo and made a list which described places you would like to visit. Unfortunately it was a rainy day, but owing to your list I could change the itinerary flexibly like visiting museums or places where not influenced by rain. I must appreciate your cooperation. You will visit various areas in Japan for five weeks. It is a great honor for me that I guided you on the first day of your stay in Japan. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi, thanks for everything yesterday. We had a great day with so many nice places. Thanks especially for the vegetarian lunch, we could not have found/seen these places and learnt so much without you.
Dear Avijit-san, Thank you for the quick and nice tour review. You are wonderful family with a very young daughter. For her, Japan became the first country of overseas experience. I hope that she will learn Japanese culture and language. Please enjoy the rest of days in Japan. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is very knowledgeable, easy going and extremely accommodating. He went above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable, entertaining, educational and exciting. His hourly fee is very reasonable, he listens carefully and delivers satisfactory results.. I recommend Toshihito as one of the best in the industry. He will be the first person I will contact when I come back to Japan.
Dear Gabriel-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I am relieved to hear that you experienced enjoyable time in Tokyo. You traveled solo, but you purchased a lot of souvenirs for your daughter. I am sure that she will be impressed with various Japanese cultural items. I hope that you will come to Japan again in near future. Then please contact me. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi San was so very nice, knowledgeable and worked so hard giving us an amazing overview of Tokyo. We would highly recommend. A member of our party had injured his leg and Toshihiro made adjustments for our friend’s comfort. In our experience, he provided exceptional value.
Dear Leslie-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I enjoyed walking in Tokyo with you, especially as you explained me well about American culture and life style. It was really interesting for me. And thank you very much for your cooperation to do the tour flexibly. But it was only one full day for you to stay in Tokyo before getting on cruise ship. Please stay one week or at least four days in Tokyo when you come to Japan next time. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is a truly excellent tour guide. We booked him for two days and he covered the older, more traditional part of the city (east) on day one and the newer, buzzing part (west) on day two. It was the perfect personalised package and it was incredible how much he efficiently fitted in. We got a taste of everything in the city, including Shinto shrine, Buddhist temple, shopping regions, parks and gardens, fish market, Shibuya Crossing, delicious restaurant and a sushi café, a look over the city from a tower, the Imperial Palace and more. As a local he was able to answer all our hundreds of questions, and he was lovely company too. Thank you Toshihiro!
Dear Maria-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You traveled many countries and have great insight on culture and life style of each country. It was really worthwhile for me to explain detail of each sightseeing spot and answer hundreds of your questions as a tour guide. I also asked you many questions especially about your great country Ireland and you gave me clear answers. I enjoyed discussion with you and learned a lot of new social tendencies of the world. It was fruitful two days for me. Thank you very much again. I believe that you would have a chance to come to Japan again. I am looking forward to seeing you then. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi was very considerate and accommodating to alter his standard o day tour dovetail with another tour we had already booked. He also went out of his way to find elevators and escalators to help my wife navigate metro.
Dear Carl-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. I was really amazed because you walked fast for long distance. I want to know the secret to be so cheerful and healthy at your age. Sometimes I could't find escalators nor elevators, and asked you to walk stairways. Both of you were cooperative. Thank you very much. I am sure that you and your wife will be able to come to Japan again. See you then. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had a good time in Tokyo with Toshi. He met us at our hotel in Shinjuku right on time. He got us the day pass for subway and off we went. He has good command of English and was able to explain Japanese culture and history to us in detail. We travelled mostly by sub-ways and he selected main sights in Tokyo like Imperial Palace, the fish market, Sensoji Temple and Asukasa park etc. It was a very hot day in Tokyo and he made enough stops on the way to get some rest. He also pointed out and explained all other things we could do the next day on our own. He has a very pleasant personality and is very easy to talk to. We highly recommend Toshi as your guide in Tokyo
Dear Vimal-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. Tokyo is very hot this year. Our tour was done in autumn, but it was as if in summer. You are very accustomed to travelling various area in the world, and you know what we should do in hot weather. Sometimes it is very difficult to offer a guide in hot days, but you were very cooperative to me. And I was surprised at your knowledge about history and culture on Asian countries including Japan. I also learned many things from you. It was good opportunity for me to understand uniqueness of Japan as a tour guide. Thank you very much. Please come to Japan again in near future. I recommend at the end of March to see beautiful cherry blossoms. Best regards, Toshihiro
Even a typhoon didn't stop Toshihari-San from showing us his wonderful city. He is extremely knowledgeable about Tokyo history. We even saw a wedding at the Meiji Shrine and he showed us how to make a wish. Shared a great lunch of sushi at the fish market. He was so very patient and understanding about my broken toe and bad back. He kept the pace slow and let me sit whenever possible. The final place we visited was to see Godzilla! Had a great time! One day to see the sights isnt enough but he jam-packed the day with as many sights as possible. I think I walked 6 miles and rode many trains. Thank you Toshihari-San for a memorable day.
Dear Gail-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. Your original schedule was only one full day in Tokyo before getting on a cruise ship. But extremely strong typhoon hit Tokyo area on that day. It was not possible to do sightseeing. You informed me that your cruise ship departure was postponed one day. Then we could do a tour next day. You gave me important information timely. It was a big help for me to organize the tour. (Sorry as some sites were closed by the influence of typhoon.) You surveyed well about Japanese culture and history before coming to Japan. I could arrange the itinerary flexibly as you showed me your interests clearly. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro proved an excellent guide for my 2 day whirlwind visit to Tokyo; he is a polite and considerate gentleman. With his knowledge of the transit system, we criss-crossed Tokyo seeing all the sights I had requested, plus some that Toshihiro suggested that proved to be so interesting. He shared his knowledge in an easy manner and was able to answer all questions. Thanks to Toshihiro, I saw so much of Tokyo in a short time and have special memories.
Dear Cynthia-san, Thank you very much for the excellent tour review. You traveled by using cruise ship and stopped Tokyo only for two days. Sometimes it was rainy, but you were more interested in cultural and historical aspects of the city. So I hope that you enjoyed the sightseeing in spite of rain. Within a few years I expect that you come to Japan again and stay at Tokyo for one or two weeks. I recommend late March or early April to see beautiful cherry blossoms. Best regards, Toshihiro
It was our first day in Japan and Toshihro was the perfect guide to introduce us to Tokyo. We asked him to show us around the western past of Tokyo such us Meiji shrine, Shibuy and Shinjuku. We ended the tour in a quite tee shop although the booked 5 hours had already passed. He was was the perfect guide for us and our two teenage sons, knowledgable, attentive and very polite. His english was absolutely fine and he answered all our question with a lot of background knowledge. We can very much recomend Toshihiro as a guide.
Dear Alain-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. You surveyed Japan well and used Japan Rail Pass effectively. I am sure that your choice of visiting western part of Tokyo on the first full day was right decision to recover from jet lag and get various information. All of your family members were great and friendly. I enjoyed conversation with your people especially about culture and sports in Switzerland. I could do a guide as if I spent a good time with my friends. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
For anyone looking for a guide I highly recommend Toshihiro. He has a wonderful disposition and will work with you in order to make your visit very memorable. He went out of his way to help us figure out the transportation system and even assisted in obtaining shinkansen tickets to our next location. He is very knowledgeable about the city and country and took us to a wonderful sushi place. At the end of the trip we felt that we were hanging out with an old friend. My only regret is that I did not hire him for two days! If you are looking for a guide in Tokyo please don't hesitate to contact him. We could not say enough good things about him. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Dear Guillermo-san and Maria-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. In spite of the first visit to Japan, you knew well about Japanese culture. I am also impressed with your wide knowledge about sushi. You have good experience of eating sushi in USA. Your chopstick skill is perfect and better than me. I was surprised as you purchased a Goshuin-cho and collected Goshuin at several shrines. I must say that your attitude of learning and trying to absorb different environment at tour destination is great. You speak basic phrases of Japanese and always expressed gratitude to other persons at shops, restaurants, and all other places. You are wonderful tourists. It is an honor that I could work as a tour guide for the people like you. Please come to Japan again in several year... read more
First day: He met us easily at the cruise terminal in Yokohama and we toured for eight hours to Tokyo seeing much more than we expected. He knows public transportation like the back of his hand so we were able to see much more than the usual shore excursion. Second day: When we disembarked from our cruise ship he again met us at the terminal and went to our nearby hotel together, dropping our bags. We then went to Kamakura. He made sure we saw the important sights and at the end of the day helped us purchase Shinkansen tickets that we needed for a train trip to Kyoto. He’s a “Five Star Guide” and very dedicated to his work.
Dear Mark-san and Lynn-san, Thank you for the quick and wonderful tour review. I also enjoyed Tokyo and Kamakura tour with you for two days. I sometimes do a guide for tourists coming to Japan by cruise ship. It was helpful that you taught me how cruise ship tour is. I was surprised because you are very active and walked long distance easily. You look much younger than your actual age. You know Japanese culture and tradition well. Sorry as I could not offer opportunity to do a tea ceremony in Kamakura. I hope that you will experience a tea ceremony in Kyoto. Please enjoy the rest of the tour in Japan. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is the best! He showed us everything in Tokyo and squeezed it all into a day. Great overview of the city to make us comfortable for the rest of the week. You can literally ask him anything and he'll have an answer. Very patient with kids and even though our tour ran long he didnt mind! At the end of the night we were sad we had to leave our new friend. Thanks Toshihiro
Dear Matt-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You are very nice American family. In the past, I experienced a guide for American families, and fortunately received similar kinds of questions. So I could answer your questions smoothly. But I think that more important point is that you created good atmosphere. You treated me as a friend. I could explain anything with relaxed feelings. I enjoyed the tour, and also became sad at the end of the tour. Thank you again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was great! Though their was eight of us he was patient and helpful. He not only took us to our requested destinations he also offered alternative locations that we were near. He shared a lot of information on Japanese culture, etiquette and history of shrines and temples we visited. Toshihiro insured we were informed on to purchase tickets for buses and trains. It was an enjoyable experience.
Dear Blanca-san, Thank you for the great tour review. People in your group are all excellent. It was exciting two days for me. I enjoyed conversation with each person. All people have nice topics like music, sports, culture, economy, geography, etc. It was like that I walked around Tokyo with my friends. Itinerary was changed according to the situation of the tour. But all of you kindly agreed with my suggestion. I could do the guide comfortably. Thank you again for the cooperation. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi had planned our 2 days in Tokyo very well, covering all the important sites with interesting background and detail. We also visited many of the must do tourist areas and other less known areas , moving seamlessly through the metro transport. Toshi’s communication skills in English helped make our whole experience most enjoyable.
Dear Doug-san and Annette-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I am happy to hear that you had an enjoyable time in Tokyo. I also enjoyed conversation with you especially about rugby world cup to be held soon in Japan. I learned a lot of New Zealand culture. It was also good experience for me. I hope that the final match of rugby world cup will be held between Japan and New Zealand. Best regards, Toshihiro
He was an excellent guide tour. He was able accommodate our requested schedule and arrange the tour. Surprisingly, he waited to pick us up at the airport almost one hour early due to the airplane arrived early. Many thanks to Toshihiro for his knowledgeable and kindness to guide us around Tokyo in just 7 hours.
Dear Binh-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You informed me of what you would like to do in Tokyo concretely. It was easy to arrange the tour. You also gave me exact information on your airline company and flight. I got to know quickly that your airplane would arrive earlier. You stayed only 7 hours in Japan for the layover. Next time, please stay two weeks or more. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was an excellent guide for our day in Tokyo. He was very kind and knowledgeable and he was able to arrange the tour to accommodate our requests and schedule. He even helped us with plans for the rest of our trip which was a huge help. Highly recommended!
Dear Leslie-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I am relieved as you seem successfully to have completed the the rest of your trip. You clearly informed me of your requests on the tour. It was easy to arrange the tour owing to your cooperation. Please come to Japan again in near future, hopefully in late March to see beautiful cherry blossom. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had a great tour of Tokyo with Toshihiro-San even though the weather was pretty bad.
Dear Dina-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. Unfortunately the weather was not good, but you cooperated very much in organizing the tour. I was surprised as you understood Japanese culture well. I enjoyed conversation with your family. Thank you again. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was so very helpful when our two days in Tokyo could have been a disaster. After traveling for several weeks my feet had begun to swell some. The heat and humidity in Tokyo just exasperated the problem. I was afraid I was not going to be able to see the many wonderful sights. Toshihiro was able to rearrange our itinerary at a moments notice thereby reducing the amount of walking necessary. He was able show us most of the sights most important to us with the least number of steps. He is also very knowledgeable. We learned so much about both Tokyo and Japan. I am so thankful Toshihiro was our guide.
Dear Rita-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. It was wonderful two days for me. Before the date of the tour, you sent me useful information like your favorite spots and behavior. That's why I could rearrange the itinerary easily. You have already traveled many countries in the world, but this was your first visit to Asia. I feel the honor to have guided such people. It was very hot and muggy in Tokyo. You took a rest appropriately. You supported me well during the tour. Thank you very much. Please come to Japan again in near future. Then please stay more days and visit more places. Best regards, Toshihiro
I am so thankful that we hired Toshihiro to guide us during our weekend tours around Tokyo. Not only that he made a great 2-day itinerary for my family, but also made sure that we enjoy our time and experiences in the places we’ve been. He knows Japan very well so we learned so much from him during our tour. He is very efficient, patient, flexible and accommodating to our requests like finding a Japanese restaurants with tatami seats and visiting particular stores on the places we visited. In short, Toshihiro is someone I would hire again if we ever visit Japan again someday and I will surely recommend him to friends and families who might go here in Japan too someday. Thank you also for capturing our wonderful moments here in Tokyo! You are a good photographer. 😍
Dear Maria-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Tokyo. It was wonderful two days for me to visit a variety of area with your family. I was a little bit surprised when you requested a restaurant with tatami seats, because most of overseas tourists don't like Japanese tatami style sitting. But you enjoyed it. You also ate various kinds of Japanese food and sweets. I appreciate such your attitude of trying to experience local culture. Regarding photographs, you advised me how to take. I am sure you must be a great photographer. Next time, not only Tokyo but also visit other cities in Japan. I will be happy to guide you suburbs of Tokyo like Yokohama, Kamakura and Mt. Fuji area. Please come to Japan again in near future. ... read more
Toshi is very knowledgeable about Tokyo and Japanese history. He is also flexible and we took breaks as needed. as we were visiting in August and it is extremely hot and humid. We traveled by subway and on foot. Walked 11 miles the first day but learned so much about the culture. He even took extra time to help us with ticketing issues. His English language skills, while not as good as a native speaker perhaps, are perfectly fine. My family enjoyed conversing with Toshi throughout the day as he patiently answered all of our questions. We did cover his subway and meals/drinks expense, but it was not at all an issue. I would definitely recommend Toshi highly for your touring guide needs.
Dear Anju-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was nice two days for me with your family. Yes, it is extremely hot in this August. It was relatively cool in the middle of July with a lot of rain. But after the end of rainy season, it changed to dangerously hot in almost all area in Japan. Many people go to hospital because of dehydration or heat stroke. You took a coffee break appropriately and we could visit all spots as scheduled with good health condition. It is important to take a rest occasionally with something drink in the air conditioned comfortable place. You know how to travel in hot area well. It was good experience for me. Thank you very much. Please come to Japan again in March cherry blossom season next time. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is the best ! This was our first time in Japan, We would have been lost without Toshihiro. I was with my 3 older children ages 23, 21 and 17, I was in a wheel chair due to an accident a day before our trip. He came to our hotel and we took the bus and subways around Tokyo. Toshihiro was able to guide us with no problem using elevators in and out of the subways with no problem. He was very accommodating, very knowledgable and so nice. Such an enjoyable and memorable tour all over Tokyo. My kids liked him a lot too, they said they miss Toshihiro. I highly recommend everyone to use him as your Tour Guide. We would definitely book with him again the next time we visit Japan. Thank you very much Toshihiro san ! Feel free to come n visit us in California anytime 🤗🥰😍👍 ! Take care ! Cr... read more
Dear Cristina-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I am relieved to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Tokyo in spite of the sudden accident the day before. You stayed at Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel. This hotel and Disney Resort Line have good barrier-free facilities for wheel chair people. You chose a nice hotel. It was easy for me to do a guide because your children supported you well for train ride and walking. Sometimes I went a long way round to find an elevator, but you persevered. Thank you for your cooperation. It was really pleasant moment for me to visit various tourist spots in Tokyo with your family members. I hope that you already recovered from the leg problem. It is only a few hours flight between Philippines and Japan. Please come to Japan again in... read more
We had a wonderful day with Toshi in Tokyo. He planned the itinerary based on our interests and flexibly adapted it to the conditions of the day. Highlights were the sushi lunch at Tsukiji market (we would never have found this great upstairs restaurant) and the train spotting places that Toshi had researched for us. We felt as if we were visiting with a friend who showed us his city, and we appreciated all the knowledge and explanations that Toshi provided, especially as this was the start of our visit to Japan. Thank you!
Dear Helene-san, Thank you very much for the wonderful comments on the tour review. Before the tour, you sent me appropriate information like your interests and favorite items. I could do the tour flexibly with a lot of your assistance. Your husband Christian-san attended the scientific conference of cartography in Tokyo. It was an important opportunity for me to know about this kind of international convention. I really enjoyed conversation with you during the tour. I also felt as if I were doing a guide for my friends. It was a comfortable moment. Thank you very much! Best regards, Toshihiro
We decided on taking the Efficient One Day Tokyo with Toshihiro as our guide because it was promoted as being an excellent tour to see the main sites of Tokyo when you have limited time in the city. Toshihiro delivered over and above what he had promised in the tour description in every respect. He is a delightful man who is extremely knowledgable and passionate about his city of Tokyo. In addition he was extremely attentive to our personal needs and made adjustments to the itinerary to suit. It may have rained on the day of our tour but nothing fazed Toshihiro and he delivered an excellent and informative tour. On behalf of my wife Carolyn and I, thank you Toshihiro for making our first day in Japan so memorable. I thoroughly recommend Toshihiro as a guide to anyone looking for an e... read more
Dear John-san and Carolyn-san, Thank you very much for having chosen me as a tour guide for your first visit to Japan and having posted this excellent tour review. It was my first time to do a tour guide for the people from great island Tasmania in Australia. I have only once visited Australia a few decades ago but could not visit Tasmania. It was memorable moment that you taught me the nature and life style of unique wonderful island. If I have a chance to travel to southern Pacific area, I would like to visit Tasmania by all means. During the Tokyo tour, you showed me your intention and expectation clearly. It was very reasonable explanation. That's why, adjustment of the tour was done flexibly well. Thank you very much again. You said that you would visit many areas in Jap... read more
Toshi was a great Tokyo guide. He took us around the city quickly and efficiently so we were able to see as much as we could in one day. He adjusted based on our needs and what we wanted to see.
Dear Lindsey-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. It was nice moment for me to talk about your home town New York city. You chose to come to Japan on special anniversary. I remember well when we ate Ramen at lunch with Japanese style slurp. I really enjoyed guiding Tokyo for you. Thank you. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is the best guide ever! He is very nice and he is funny too! if i ever come back to japan i will definitely want him again! He knows a lot of cool stops and places too, I’m a teenager and he’s super fun to be around! I even told him about my friends in the US and he was so nice about it! He even knows a little spanish and english! He is cool, sweet, funny,helpful, and really smart and i really like him!! I miss toshihiro!!
Thank you for the wonderful comments on the tour review with a lot of compliments to me. I also enjoyed Tokyo tour with your family. During the tour you showed me popular Japanese souvenirs and animations among overseas people. It was important experience for me to know the shops selling those items. If you have a chance to come to Japan again in the future, I would like to do the tour guide for you by all means. Thank you again. Best regards, Toshihiro
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
We took a day trip within Tokyo with Toshihiro san, and should say that we had a very good time with him checking out various places. Toshihiro san was wanting to make sure we all enjoyed and had a good time and also careful to ensure that we found elevators at subway stations so that it was easier for my mother. He is kind, informative and very accommodating.
Dear Santosh-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. You are excellent three-generation family. We changed itinerary and visited Japanese garden. I had anxiety on such a sudden change. So I am relieved to hear that you had a good time. You also chose going back to the hotel on foot to see city well. I believe that you enjoyed traditional cultures and modern styles of Tokyo. I am happy if I could contribute to your new finding on the travel of Japan. Best regards, Toshihiro
We hired Toshihiro-san for one day tour. He showed us the highlights of Tokyo and how to get around Tokyo. He was very informative and helpful and we managed to fit everything we wanted to do in to our day! It was a lot of fun and we would highly recommend him to anyone travelling to Tokyo.
Dear Indah-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was my honor to guide an excellent young Australian couple around popular spots in Tokyo. You showed a lot of interests on Japanese history, culture and food. It was also exciting time for me to explain various matters on Japan. Please come to Tokyo again. I recommend late March to see beautiful cherry blossoms. Best regards, Toshihiro
It was pouring rain during our tour with Toshihiro. He picked us up at the hotel lobby right on time. Took us to half of the itinerary we had planned due to the rain. Not his fault the weather was bad and we were jet lagged. Lots of walking so be prepared. Would have liked him to speak more English but for someone who grew up there in Japan his English is much better than others. He was able to communicate. Like I said his price compared to others. We would have never gone to the places he took us. We would be lost for sure.
Dear Jennifer-san, Thank you very much for frank comments on the tour review. I am sorry as I could not offer an alternative tour plan in case of rainy day with less walking for tired tourists. I strongly feel that I should establish a skill to make a flexible tour plan on any condition by the requests of tourists, but I could not do it. I must say that I am still far from the ideal tour guide I want to be. Reality is tough. But I hope that you enjoyed the Tokyo tour in spite of bad weather and my Japanese accent of English. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was a very patient, knowledgeable Tour Guide. We had a great day. He was very accommodating from the first contact. He looked at what we had planned on other days and organised a great itinerary. My son and I had the best day. Highly recommend.
Dear Gerhard-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. Unfortunately it was rainy day in spite that forecast was cloudy weather. But you understood the situation and accepted the tour plan. I appreciate your broad‐minded attitude. I felt that your son will be brought up healthily and to behave politely by watching his father. Best regards, Toshihiro
The tour was perfect for our first day in Tokyo! Toshihiro was so helpful in guiding us to plan for our subsequent days in Japan!
Dear Khiem-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I am relieved to hear that my guidance for the subsequent days was helpful for you. Please come to Japan again with your kids in the future to experience Japanese life more. Best regards, Toshihiro
Our family of six has chosen Toshihiro-San as our tour guide and we are glad that we have made a good decision. He is very flexible and came up with an itinerary that fits in my children’s interests and yet retain part of the Japanese cultures. He is fluent in English and able to explain the history and culture of the country.
Dear William-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. It was marvelous two days for me to do a tour guide for the wonderful three generation family. I am impressed with your good understanding of Japanese culture, not only animation and food, but also history and social system. I hope that your children will be involved with Japan more in the future. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was excellent. We saw so many sights. Toshihiro was Very knowledgeable about Tokyo and we had a great time.
Dear Renate-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. I am glad to hear that you had a great time. I appreciate your conquest of all Disney facilities in the world by visiting Tokyo Disney. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi-san was extremely helpful from the very beginning. I reached out by email and he was always so quick to respond. He took the time to create the perfect itinerary for one full day in Tokyo based on what we wanted to see. He also provided estimated train costs so we knew exactly what to expect. He was extremely kind to us too, and we really enjoyed his company. My kids both loved him so much because he so patiently waited for them as they went crazy in Akihabara! He was patient and never left us for a minute unattended. We loved Toshihiro, and our family highly recommends his services to any others visiting Tokyo for the first time.
Dear Melissa-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. You sent me detailed information on your interests and which area you would visit by yourselves. Then I decided which spots we should visit during the Tokyo tour with you. It was relatively easy to make an itinerary owing to your assistance. To tell the truth, I am not so familiar with animation. As a tour guide, it was a little bit difficult time to take tourists to Akihabara. But your son showed me which items are valuable for the tourists from overseas. It was good experience for me. It was my honor to guide a wonderful family like yours. Thank you very much again. Best regards, Toshihiro
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
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
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
The experience with Toshihiro was very good ; he is a very nice person and described us the city in a clear and complete way
Dear Roberto-san and Massimo-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. It was interesting moment for me to talk about Italy and soccer with you. I hope that Juventus will win next year's Europe Champions League. Best regards, Toshihiro
We hired Toshi for a 2 day tour in Tokyo and it was super worth it. He took us all around the city by subway - which saved time and money. He had extensive knowledge of the history of Tokyo and Japan which helped tremendously when visiting the different places and connecting the dots. We traveled to Kyoto after and a lot of what we learned with Toshi came in handy - it was great to understand more about Japan and also learned lots of historical facts. The tour itself was a great mix of traditional tourist attractions (Imperial palace gardens, shrines and ueno park) with key urban areas of Tokyo (Takeshita street, Shibuya). We had a really comprehensive schedule (8 hours each day) and visited multiple places that were all equally worth it - and Toshi just makes the experience super enjo... read more
Dear Carla-san and Jarrod-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. It was also wonderful time for me to walk around various area in Tokyo with you. I must apologize as I said "We don't need umbrella today", but it was slightly rainy in the Imperial place on the first day of the tour. Thank you for your patience. And I appreciate your multi language skill. Jarrod-san is a big person and one guy in Tsukiji market mistook him as a professional basketball player. But he is an extremely gentle person. I was really lucky to guide you. I am happy to hear that my explanation about Japanese history was useful when you were in Kyoto. From this May, new era came to Japan because emperor changed. You were in Tokyo at Heisei era. But we are now in Reiwa era. Please come to Japan aga... read more
Toshihiro changed his time for us. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Good english. He could have said goodbye from Train Station but came to drop us at the Hotel. Highly recommended
Dear Rajendra-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. It was wonderful two days for me to guide you to various parts of Tokyo for both day tour and night tour. You had jet lag just after over night air flight, but walked around well and tried several local food. Thank you for choosing me as your guide. Best regards, Toshihiro
Tokyo was the last city in our trip around China South Korea and Japan . We have been disappointed with a number of actors and guides but Toshi completely met our expectations he spoke good English knew his way around the city on public transport and knew where everything was even down to locating a tube to bring home our paintings purchased around several countries in the safety. His timekeeping was excellent and he had prepared an itinerary in advance which we stopped to seeing everything that we wanted to see and a few more .We spent an extra day in Tokyo after leaving Toshi behind and we were able to find a way around the city on the subway which must be a monks the most confusing we have ever seen. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other visitors. Are only suggestion... read more
Dear Tony-san, Thank you for the fabulous tour review. You are very good sociable person. When you arrived at Yokohama Port Terminal by the cruise ship, new friends joined you. It was exciting two days to do a tour with such a open minded person. Finding a tube case to safely put the artistic drawings you purchased in China was nice experience for me. Honestly speaking, I felt that it was a funny requirement from tourist. But just after seeing the drawings you purchased in China, I understood importance of the tube case. Those were amazingly beautiful drawings. I think that you have excellent skills of finding true art. You did a lot of research on modern trend of tourists spots. Owl forest and hedgehog cafe were added to itinerary. Various kinds of animal cafe is getting pop... read more
I booked Toshihiro as his previous reviews were so good and he did not disappoint. The one day tour was a great way to see so many sites and get to many different parts of town without the hassle of planning or getting lost in the subway system. Toshihiro is a true gentleman, very patient and considerate with impeccable manners. We would definitely recommend booking him.
Dear Tiffany-san, Thank you for the marvelous tour review. You are excellent two couples from Europe. It was curious and useful time for me to see what kinds of items you stopped at and showed interests during the tour. You know very much about the history of Japan. You have insightful ideas on the difference between Japan and your country. You gave me a lot of opportunity to reexamine the history. Thank you very much. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro is a kind and attentive guide who knows his way around Tokyo. We had him for two days and we are already missing his reassuring presence. I suggest you stay 5 nights in Tokyo and hire a guide for two days and then go by yourself. Tokyo is a very easy city ... to get lost in, even using Google Maps as the GPS signal is irregular because of narrow streets. Good Luck !!
Dear Pierre-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. You are French speaking Canadian, but speak perfect English. You gave me a lot of interesting and useful information on technology, culture, business, world travel, etc. You are truly Early Adopter of modern equipment and showed me various new ideas. It was amazing two days for me to guide you around Tokyo. Thank you very much. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had booked Toshihiro as a private guide for the 2 of us. He came to our hotel in the morning and took us to all the places of importance and those we wanted to see in addition: Asakura, Ginza, Harajuku, Imperial Palace, fish market, Meiji shrine. We skipped sky tree and Eno park which we visited on our own. Having been to historic Kyoto before, we reduced shrine viewing time in Tokyo in favor of seeing more public places in a short time esp. food markets and shopping areas….Toshi had asked in advance and had planned the route according to our wishes. He even remembered to take me to a store where I could buy some Manga. It was a long day (and probably overtime for Toshi) but thx to the 1-day subway ticket and Toshis sense of orientation we could see much more on our first day than if w... read more
Dear Florian-san and Tina-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was my delightful time to guide orderly and intellectual German people like you. I was really surprised as you are very familiar with Japanese culture, and purchased several Japanese Manga comic books. I appreciate your attitude of being open minded and also being interested in less touristic places, eager to learn about Japanese culture and also everyday life. It is sometimes difficult to guide people who are interested in Japanese culture because definition and/or contents of culture are different by person, but you supported me well for choosing which spots we should visit. Thank you very much again. I am truly happy to get good comments on the tour from you. I believe that you will come to Japan again ... read more
Thank you very much Toshihiro San. Toshihiro San was very professional, friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to help me sort out an issue with my hotel booking. Toshihiro San made our time with him very enjoyable. Once again Toshihiro San thank you for making our day in Tokyo so pleasant and memorable. Once again Toshihiro San was very professional and knowledgeable while showing us Tokyo at night. Thank you Toshihiro San I hope that in the future when I come back to your beautiful country you will be available to show me more of Tokyo. Arigatou Gozaimasu ( どうもありがとうございました) Toshihiro San SheilaA from London
Dear Sheila-san, Thank you for the fabulous tour review. It was a marvelous moment for me to walk in Tokyo with you on 10th and 11th April. Especially night tour was unforgettable experience. This was your second time to come to Japan. You are very familiar with Japanese culture and habit. You understand basic Japanese language. It is great honor for me to receive good comments from a person like you. In Japan, we have a proverb "What happens twice will happen three times". So I am sure that you will come to Japan again. I am happy if I could guide you at your third time in Japan. Best regards, Toshihiro
Every aspect was fantastic including the lovely pancake meal we cooked ourselves in a tiny restaurant.. ne was considerate and kind and showed us so many amazing things. We even got to see the cherry blossoms on our first day in Tokyo. We would have missed an excellent opportunity had we not taken this tour. Many thanks for a great day out Toshihiro.
Dear Max-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I know I must express gratitude for your big assistance on lunch meal cooking. You taught me that there are now many Japanese restaurants in Australia and that you have eaten various kinds of Japanese food. You gave me a lot of interesting and useful information. You are truly generous and helped me during the tour. Thank you very much. Best regards, Toshihiro
It was a great pleasure to have Mr.Toshihiro as our guide. He met us at our hotel and for the whole day, he show us the most important areas in Tokyo. We had together meals in nice japaneze style restaurants, he gave us information about people, culture and history of Japan. We highly recommend him. Thank you Mr. Toshihiro for everything you did for us.
Dear Peter-san and Joanna-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was excellent two days for me with you. You gave me appropriate opinions on what you would like to do, that's why I could do a guide easily. Thank you for your cooperation. It was my first time to enter into Samurai museum in Shinjuku. It was a good experience. The dinner we ate at night tour was also good experience for me. Thank you for many things. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide. I cannot recommend Toshi and TripleLights travel enough. Yoshikazu answered all our wand literally made our trip to Japan one of the most memorable times.
Dear Alex-san, Thank you for the tour review. It was my precious two days to guide your family including a cheerful son and elegant daughters. I hope that Japan and Tokyo have become one of the impressive country and city in your life. Best regards, Toshihiro
We hired Toshihiro to be our guide for three of the five days we were in Tokyo and he made our trip wonderful! He emailed us beforehand to find out the things we were interested in and made itineraries for each day. We changed two of the itineraries, however, during the day, as we discovered new things that seemed like fun to do. He was very flexible when this happened. We would discuss the things on the itinerary that we wanted to keep and those we wanted to change. You do need to let him know how much money you want to spend on entrance fees, though, or he will only take you to free attractions. For example, we went to the Kabuki Theater and saw the outside, but we told Toshihiro that we wanted to go inside and were willing to pay the entrance fees. Then, we were able to interact with ... read more
Dear Cheryl-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I am happy to hear that your Tokyo trip was wonderful. I am surprised that you and your two granddaughters are very familiar with Japanese culture. Your two granddaughters are learning Japanese seriously and speaking basic conversations. It was my honor to do a guide for such wonderful people. You showed interests not only Japanese animation which are hobby of your granddaughters but also traditional ones like Japanese garden and Kabuki. It was my first time to enter into Kabuki theater. This was important experience for me. You purchased not only anime character goods but also Japanese Kimonos with sashes even for another granddaughter in US. You must be a great grandmother. I am sure that your grandchildren are very ha... read more
Toshihiro helped me master the public transit system of Tokyo. We criss-crossed the entire city using the subway system. I got to see all the famous landmarks and have some excellent ramen to end out tour!
Dear Lori-san, Thank you for the quick tour review. It was nice time for me to introduce various spots in Tokyo. I hope that this tour will be good memory for you in your world travel. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi gave us a great full-day tour of Tokyo! It was so easy to plan our personalized tour with him. He responded quickly to my emails and requests. Toshi was willing to take us to all the places we requested and we felt like it was a very comprehensive tour. He speaks English very well and has a great, easy-going personality. He was prompt and dependable. Don't hesitate to book Toshi as your local guide...he is highly recommended!
Dear Judith-san, Thank you for the splendid tour review. I feel relieved because you said our tour as the great full-day tour of Tokyo. It is an honorable compliment. Your questions by emails were logical and reasonable. It was not difficult to answer quickly. You gave me appropriate information on which you were especially interested in. It made me easier to do the tour. Thank you for the cooperation. Best regards, Toshihiro
We really enjoyed our tour of the city with Toshihiro as our guide. He is a very nice person, polite, courteous, professional and very patient. He was punctual. He met us at the lobby of our hotel, which was very convenient for us. We just arrived a day before still fighting a jet lag and since this is our first visit to Japan we were not familiar with the city at all. Toshihiro made the sightseeing stress free for us and we saw much more than we would have, trying to do it on our own. He tried to answer all our questions and never rushed us while sightseeing. He helped us with exchanging our JR vouchers for actual tickets and with booking the reserved seats for our upcoming round trip to Takayama for few days. He accommodated our request to see East Royal Gardens after visiting the Royal ... read more
Dear Maryla-san, Thank you for the detailed tour review. I am relieved to hear that the Tokyo tour was very enjoyable especially as you suffered jet lag. This was your first visit to Japan but you researched well about Japan. You got Japan Rail Pass and traveled effectively in Japan including traditional city Takayama. I think that you made very clever travel plan. In Tokyo area, you requested me to add Imperial Palace East Gardens in the itinerary. You understand the Japan's history well. It was an excellent customization to add one or two area you researched into the standard Tokyo tour course. You walked quickly in the Tokyo tour. You didn't mention any additional requirements to find a restaurant for lunch. You helped me to visit important sightseeing spots in time. Ow... read more
We wanted to go to the Mori Digital Art Museum in Tokyo, as well as seeing some other highlights of the city. We were on a cruise ship, docking in Yokohama at 12.30pm, and needed to be back by 9.30pm. so we didn't have a lot of time. Communication through Triplelights in organising the trip with Toshihiro was excellent. He replied very promptly, and I contacted him numerous times. We had a lot of trouble finding out where we were docking (cruise ship gave me the incorrect information three times), but with a lot of work from me as well as Toshihiro who rang the Yokohama Port Authority on our behalf, we were able to verify the correct dock and make arrangement to meet where the ship's shuttle was dropping us off. He was there waiting for us, knew the exact trains to catch and the amount o... read more
Dear Hella-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. It was my first time to visit the Mori Digital Art Museum in Tokyo. Thank you for the marvelous experience. To enter the Mori Digital Art Museum, we waited more than one hour. I should have obtained such information and explained to you as a tour guide. But I didn't. I must appreciate your patience. Before the tour, we had exchanged a lot of information on the pier your cruise ship would dock at. Finally you got right and enough information. You gave me appropriate idea where we should meet at. It was very helpful for me. I like travel. I went to various countries in the world. But I have never experienced the travel by the cruise ship. You taught me about the travel of the cruise ship. It was very useful for me. T... read more
Toshi-san (as he preferred to be called) was an excellent tour guide. His fee was very competitive. He kindly picked us up in the morning to our hostel and started the tour. He is very punctual. He took us to places that I requested and was very patient with us. We are a family of three generation (grandparents, parents and children) and just arrived the night before from Chicago. My children was having jetlag so my five year old was sleeping in the stroller by the end of the day. Toshi-san helped us carrying the stroller with the child in it going up and down the stairs in the subway station. He gave us a great tour, taught us History of Japan and very kind through it all. We enjoyed the experience very much and he gave us a wonderful first impression of Japan as this is our first time... read more
Dear Shinta-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was very happy time for me to guide your three generation family because all of you treated me as if I were a member of your group. I also enjoyed the tour with you. Sometimes I had done a guide for the families with the stroller. In Tokyo, most of the railway stations have the elevators. But some are installed very far side from the destination we would like to visit. So we used the stairs in some subway stations to take a shortcut. It might be a little bit hard work for you because all of you suffered jet lag just after arriving at Tokyo from Illinois. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation. I hope that your kids will have stronger interests on Japan and that all of you will come to Japan again for longer p... read more
We spent two days with Toshihiro, touring Tokyo. He had a good understanding of the train system, and Japan history. Although we were very tired from the long days previous to this tour, Toshihiro was very patient with us. He allowed us to take several breaks, and modified the schedule when needed. Toshihiro took us to several locations around Tokyo, and answered all of our questions. Thank you Toshi!!!
Dear Karen-san, Thank you for the tour review. It was amazing two days with you. It was my first experience to go to the hedgehog cafe. Thank you for the important experience for me. You researched well about unique spots in Tokyo. It was big help for me. I guess that your schedule of this Japan trip was very tight as you visited many places in short period. Next time, please come to Japan for several weeks or months with relax schedule. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro made it easier for us to navigate the metro. He chose a stairs free roads for us. My husband is on a wheelchair. It was a good introduction day to Tokyo. Thank you Toshihiro.
Dear Sonia-san, Thank you for the tour review. I am relieved to hear that the Tokyo tour was a good introduction for you. I am sure that you will soon recover from jet lag and enjoy more sightseeing. I hope that Japan would be one of the unforgettable countries you traveled in the world. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshi has expert experience navigating the subway system and had a good plan for seeing everything I had wanted. He seemed to be able to read my energy level & so we accomplished so much in a day. Not only that he was also fun & cool to hang out with. A big thank you goes out to him & I would highly recommend him to others.
Dear Ginger-san, Thank you for sending a splendid tour review. I was impressed with your high‐spirited curiosity to see various spots during the tour. And you showed me the value of giant spider sculpture in Roppongi. It was also exciting tour for me. You are now travelling many countries as round‐the‐world trip. I hope that Tokyo became unforgettable memorial place for you. Best regards, Toshihiro
Todhihiro went above and beyond, even stood in line for an hour helping us with reservations at JR station. Would recommend Toshihiro to anybody traveling to Tokyo.
Dear Saji-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. You made relax atmosphere. I could do a guide to your family like to my friends. I am sure that you saw the beautiful mount Fuji on next day of the Tokyo tour. Best regards, Toshihiro
We had a wonderful day in Tokyo with Toshi. He made our 1st day in Tokyo a stress free experience. We saw everything we had on our list and much more. Toshi was very patient while getting the four of us on and off the metro. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Tokyo and Japan. We use the metro the next day like we were experts...Thanks Toshi. We would highly recommend Toshi to anybody visiting Japan.
Dear Sue-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. It was partial rainy day. But I am relieved to hear that you enjoyed Tokyo tour and that you understood the complicated subway system. I highly appreciate your patience. It was nice moment for me that you explained about your home town Queensland. You must be strong against hot weather. Please come to Japan again in our summer season. Best regards, Toshihiro
I had a wonderful time during my day tour with Toshihiro. Despite the rainy weather, Toshihiro was able to show me the highlights and places to be in Tokyo. He was able to deliver and assisted me in looking for authentic souvenirs for my mother. He is kindhearted, humble and quite knowledgeable and I really appreciate that. When I come back to Japan, I will definitely hire Toshihiro again. Thank you very much.
Dear Jeffrey-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. I appreciate your patience in the rainy day Tokyo tour. You went to northern area of Japan to take photographs and stopped at Tokyo for one day before leaving. I am impressed with the beautiful photos of Japanese nature you showed me. I am sure that your mother will be satisfied with the souvenirs. Next time, please come to Japan especially Tokyo area with your mother. Best regards, Toshihiro
Visiting Tokyo seemed daunting with all the hype about the complicated Train/Metro system and the language barrier that have been one of the concerns we hear and see on social media so my family contemplated on whether to get the help of a private tour guide or do it alone. We chose Toshi and we did the right thing. He walked us through the complicated subway transfers and made it look so easy. We visited the places we wanted to visit and Toshi was all eager to answer all our questions along the way.He was knowledgeable. All in all ,the day turned out to be excellent which started in Shinjuku. We would recommend Toshi to our friends if they visit Tokyo and need a Private Tour Guide. Also , a shout out to TripleLights for running a great app to help visitors in visiting Japan for the first... read more
Dear Maria-san and Telly-san, Thank you for the wonderful tour review. I highly appreciate your decision of having come to Tokyo as tour destination in spite of exaggerated rumor of complicated transportation and the language barrier. And thank you for hiring me as your tour guide. You were a big family with total seven people. Usually guiding a tour for seven people by using public transportation is difficult. Sometimes one person is away from the group. But your family was well organized and supported by each other. I could do a guide without any difficulty. Thank you for your cooperation. It was my happy moment that you asked me several intellectual questions about Japanese culture, religion and social systems. I also learned many things from you. It will be honorable oppo... read more
We really enjoyed this one day tour with Toshi. We saw every major sight in Tokyo: Imperial Palace, shrines, temples, Tsujiki fish market, Ueno Park, Hachiko, Shibuya Crossing and more! We did a lot of walking but this is what we wanted as we wanted to see as much as we could so that in the next few days we could decide where we wanted to go on our own. Toshi was very knowledgeable about Japan history and traditions! He explained the subway system and navigated us through Tokyo very efficiently. We made one change to the itinerary and we were still able to see everything that was listed on his tour. We highly recommend Toshi as a guide as he is prompt, polite, courteous and very patient. We would have been lost without him. Thank you Toshi!
Dear Curtis-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I also enjoyed the guiding Tokyo for your family. You have good knowledge about Japanese history and culture. It was my happy moment to explain historical background and unique thinking style of Japanese for intellectual American people like your group. Not just sightseeing, but also cultural opinion exchange we could do during the tour. And I was surprised that all of you were cheerful and walked long distance easily. I hope that you would come to Japan again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro was very knowledgeable about Japan history! He spoke English very well and explain a lot about Japanese traditions! I was very good with the subway and train system ! Highly recommended ! Sincerely Luisa
Dear Luisa-san, Thank you for the prompt tour review. It was nice experience to walk around Imperial Palace, Ueno park and some other places to guide you. I got good knowledge about your home town New York. Please say hello to your daughters. Best regards, Toshihiro
We really enjoyed this one day tour with Toshihiro. We saw every major sight in Tokyo of importance. He navigated us through the subway. It was a lot of walking but this is what we wanted. It was perfect!
Dear Beth-san, Thank you for the tour review. I am surprised because you are cheerful and walk long distance easily. I thought that American people always drive cars and don't walk long distance. But you are different. Usually my tour is delayed, but you finished on time owing to your quick walking. I am happy as I could show you various areas in Tokyo. Best regards, Toshihiro
Great experience with Toshihiro-san he’s very knowledgeable of the history of the areas we went we learned a lot from early Japanese history. He’s prompt, polite, courteous and very patient. We enjoyed all the food tasting in Tsukiji food market and the fresh sushi from the fish market. Our family enjoyed the day trip with Toshihiro-san.
Dear Cynthia-san, Thank you for the excellent tour review. I also enjoyed the tour with your family. I am impressed because you and your daughter wore Japanese Kimono elegantly. I recommend that you buy Kimono as casual wear in United States. Your chopsticks skill is also good enough. Your son has great knowledge about Japanese animation. I assume that your family will be able to live in Japan without any problem. It was nice experience for me. Best regards, Toshihiro
Knowledgeable, made itineraries well that us to understand and follow well and considering custumer needs well. Most of all he is very kind and friendly. We will hire him if we visit Tokyo again.
Dear Julie-san, Thank you for the tour review. It was wonderful two days for me that I guided you to various places in Tokyo. But two days are not enough to visit and experience major unique tourist attractions. I hope that you come to Japan again in near future. Then please stay for one month or more. Best regards, Toshihiro
We enjoyed a very interesting and informative full day tour together with Toshihiro. He was open for alternative stops/routes and made sure that we wouldn’t miss out on any of the highlights. I would definitely recommend anyone planning a first time trip to Tokyo to book a tour with Toshihiro.
Dear Christer-san, Thank you for the nice tour review. I am glad that we could do a tour in spite of sudden schedule change owing to your flight. I appreciate your generous minds of understanding Japanese culture and tradition. This time, you came to Japan for business trip and only one day Tokyo sightseeing tour. Please come to Japan again in near future with your family for vacation. Best regards, Toshihiro
I was on a quick layover and only had about 6 hours to see as much of Tokyo as possible. Toshihiro was able to help me see everything on my list and provided some history and fun facts along the way. He also was kind enough to meet me at the airport in the morning and ensured I boarded the right train back to the airport later that afternoon. Thank you Toshihiro!
Dear Leslie-san, Thank you for the tour review. It was just a six hours layover that you were in Tokyo for sightseeing. I appreciate that you did a Tokyo tour in your busy schedule. But Haneda airport is located a little bit far from major tourist spots in Tokyo. Not only Tokyo but many other Japanese cities have a lot of exciting and interesting destinations. I recommend you do Japan tour for two or three weeks next time. Best regards, Toshihiro
Toshihiro-san is very knowledgeable with Tokyo subway and this helps to save a lot of time on moving from one itinerary to another. We are very particularly grateful to Toshihiro-san for helping us to get the tickets to Final Fantasy Eorzea Cafe in Akihabara. Also greatly appreciate helping us to order food at Tsukiji market and trying out monjayaki at Monja Street.
Dear Lim-san, Thank you for the tour review. Your hotel was located at Ginza area, it was easy to visit tourist spots like Tsukiji fish market and Tsukishima Monja street. I am not so familiar with Japanese Anime culture, but I am sure that you enjoyed Final Fantasy Eorzea Cafe in Akihabara with your daughters. Malaysia is not far from Japan. Please come to Tokyo again in near future. Best regards, Toshihiro
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
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
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
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
