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

“ What a fun day! ”

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

“ Great experience ”

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

“ Great day in Tokyo ”

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

“ Rainy day in Tokyo.. ”

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

“ Tokyo - city tour made easy ”

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
