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

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
