“ 3hr tour in Tokio ”

Very nice tour. We just landed to Tokio and wanted to have an overall view/experience of the city, which Yasuro totally accomplished. He took us to close neighborhoods from our hotel but with the public transportation we covered a lot in 3hrs. His English is limited but he really takes you to key city spots!


Dear Enrique, Thank you for warm comments of me. Yes, three hours were not enough to cover Harajuku, Shibuya and Shinjuku. I am sorry for showing two of you here and there without knowing that you were so tired that you could not have even lunch yet. I wish if I could have had a talk with you about Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and/or Hiroshima drinking bear or coffee, as mentioned in your mail. Any how, enjoy your holiday in Japan. Ask anything to people when you are in trouble ; since most of Japanese are gentle and kind. Have a good day! Yasuro

“ One of the nicest people we met in Japan! ”

We visited Ryu-Q-Kan and it was so great to have someone there to explain about everything we were seeing. Yasuro was attentive, organized and we have a really enjoyable time.


Dear Edwards, Thank you very much for your warm comments about me. See you somewhere again. Good day! Yasuro

“ Great guide! ”

We spent two days with Mr. Yasuro as our guide, and highly recommended him for your Tokyo travels. Punctual, informative, and cost conscious in guiding us to many Tokyo sights on th east and west sides giving us a fantastic taste of the city as a whole.


Dear Mr & Mrs Patrick, Thank you so much for your warm compliments on me. How was your cruise around Japan? I do hope you have had wonderful memories of the trip in Japan. Since it is getting hotter every day please take care of yourselves though Canada seems to be much cooler than Japan. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro

“ Wonder two days in Tokyo with a great guide :) ”

Very friendly , flexible as we have young children who wanted to do certain things off the itinerary and Yasuro San accommodated us . Had hand drawn maps to orient us to the place and train system . Wrote a Haiko poem for our son who has learned writing Haiko in school . On the banks of Sumida river he sang a wonderful song in praise of the river that was a special treat . On last day we were running behind schedule and he stayed almost two hours extra on an 8 hour day . He took us to eateries that were good and not crowded . Over all made out trip smooth and memorable.


Dear Reddy family, Thank you very much for your warm compliments of me. As your tour is still going on, please take care of yourselves. I do hope you will have a memorable holiday in Japan. Thank you again. Yasuro
