It will be my pleasure to help you enjoy your stay in Japan. I can speak English, Chinese and Japanese, so feel free to talk to me in any language that you feel comfortable with. I was once a tourist myself, so I believe I can provide the best tour experience from a tourist's perspective. Let me know your interests and I will make the best tour for you. Hope to see you soon!

Arnold was fantastic. I picked him because he was younger and figure he could relate to my 14-year old son better and take us to some of the younger great spots and shopping Tokyo. We really enjoyed our time with him. He was very detailed in his itinerary he created for us based on the areas we wanted to see. His energy was upbeat and fun. Great Day!
In addition to wanting a guide to show us some of Tokyo’s temples we also thought it would be useful to have someone with us on the first day to help teach us to use Tokyo’s transport systems so we could make the most of our visit. Arnold advised on the best way to get around (not just Tokyo but Kyoto too) advised on the best payment method for travel and helped us purchase our IC cards. We visited 2 temples, both of which Arnold was knowledgeable about and gave us a deeper appreciation of than if we had visited alone. He also made additional suggestions of places to visit based on the conversations we had on the day of the tour and adapted the schedule so we could fit in other locations that interested us. He also gave us suggestions for places later on in the holiday. Arnold was ... read more
Hi Jodi, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I had a wonderful time with you and Mark. It was my pleasure to show everyone around Tokyo. I hope you had a wonderful time in the rest of your Japan trip. Next time when you come to Japan, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
Arnold's English is impeccable! My children, 12 and 7 seemed to connect with him immediately. He was on time for hotel pick up and navigated the subway system with ease. He kept us on time. We went to Tsukiji market, Kabuki, Sengakuji temple, Harajuku and Meiji shrine. He saw to it that all of us enjoyed our day and let us rest when the little feet were tired. We had a great day with him.
Thank you so much for the lovely review Hima! I'm very happy that you enjoyed my tour. Your children are so adorable and I had a wonderful time with everyone. Thank you so much once again and I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
Arnold was very resourceful, patient, attentive to all our needs, and excellent with time management. He is a great tour guide. He made us enjoy our day to the fullest. He is also flexible regardless of age group. I had my parents with me and my children and they all enjoyed his company. We achieved everything we wanted for the day and more! 😊
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Pia! I'm so glad that you enjoyed my tour. It was my pleasure to be your guide for Tokyo Disney resort. I really had a great time and am so happy that we accomplished so much within a day. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!! Cheers !!!
Arnold stepped into a difficult situation—we’d booked another guide who came down with the flu, and Arnold was given less than 48 hours’ notice to replace her. But he came through, going over her itinerary with us and making sure we got to everything we wanted to see, plus making other suggestions, like the Tokyo Sky Tree. He also stayed with us for extra time when I didn’t realize his deadline had passed. Arnold is a native English speaker who has spent a decade living in Japan, so in many ways he has the perspective of both a tourist and a local. (He was able to explain every custom and answer all our questions.) He found a way to connect with my kids, which was greatly appreciated. At each site he gave us as little or as much time as we needed, he made suggestions for other things to... read more
Thank you so much for the lovely review Albert! I'm very happy that you enjoyed my tour. I had a wonderful time with everyone and am so glad I was able to be your tour guide. Also, it was really fun playing Pokemon Go with everyone. Too bad we did not catch a shiny scyther. I hope everyone had a great time in Taiwan. Please come visit Japan again. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family. Sincerely, Arnold.
