Hello, I am guchi ( same pronunciation as gucci), English guide. I used to live in Long island in New York. It was beatiful memory for me. I enjoyed the life in Big Apple, watching sport game at Shea Stadium and Madison Square Garden, and the musical at Broadway. I also have an experience to live in China (Shanghai and Beijing). At that time overseas, I couldn't speak Engilish or Chinese well, but the people in those cities were very kind and help me in daily life. So I want to return the favour to travellers, coming to Japan. I will help you and guide you at my best !!

This was an amazing day trip! Guchi was kind enough to meet us at the hotel and show us how to use the train system. Learning the train alone was invaluable! The walk with Guchi up Mt Takao was fun and exciting. He had us try local treats and was very knowledgeable about the mountains history and customs. We were very lucky to be visiting on a special day and see the Monks blessing the shops and restaurants along the path. We highly recommend Guchi as a tour guide and the Mt Takao excursion! Thank you Guchi for a great day!
Dear, Michele. Thank you very much for send me the message. I am happy to hear from you. I also enjoy the talk to you and it was good memory to see Buddhist monk at that day. I hope the stay at Tokyo was good for you. Best regards Guchi
My wife and I are extremely happy we chose Hiroshi as our guide while on our first visit to Tokyo. His English is excellent. He is bright, personable, and quite well informed about all aspects of present day and past history of this fascinating city.
Dear Eric. It was my pleasure to talk to you about Japan and USA. I am very happy to guide you on tour of Tokyo. I hope you will have a great time in Japan. Have a safe trip. Best regards Guchi
We had a memorable time in Japan with Guchi as our guide. He’s easy to understand and flexible. We were very pleased with the lunch & hands-on experiences like weaving & riding the Rickshaw. Highly recommended guide.
Dear Donna. I am so glad to hear you. Thank you very much for teaching me how to cook ahi poke. I enjoy real Hawaiian food so much. Someday l want to go to Hawai again and see you again. Best regards Guchi
I arranged to meet Hiroshi on my first full day in Tokyo, mainly as I knew I would struggle getting around the city. I went down to the hotel lobby as arranged where he was waiting for me - armed with a selection of maps and guides (in English). We sat and chatted for a few minutes before setting off into the city. He showed me both my local subway station and my local JR railway station, indicating I'd need to know the location of these before going further afield. Then he took me to several key landmarks in the city. I chose the Triple Lights agency as the website was clear, and all the guides had short introductory videos. I chose Hiroshi (Guchi) as I knew we would get along. I was right to make this decision, Guchi was everything I needed and more. He knew his way around, he knew h... read more
Dear Dave. I am so glad to hear you. It was also good memory for me to get on the boat on the river with you . It was nice day for cruise. I hope you would have many nice memories during the stay at Japan . Best regards Guchi
Me and my boyfriend took tokyo trip on our transit trip from Singapore to SFO. In 8 hours, Hiroshi toured historical, future electronic and day to day social activities like markets, busy streets and temple. We had good understanding of tokyo culture and day to today lif style as that's the objective of the tour. His knowledge about the city and culture is worth mentioning.
Dear Leela, thank you very much for your message. It was nice to talk to you. I am so glad to hear you enjoy my tour. I hope we might see you again to see cherry blossom. Best regards Guchi
