“ Tokyo sights! ”

Toshio guided us through a jam-packed day in Tokyo and met us promptly at our hotel lobby. He is a very considerate and knowledgeable guide. I also appreciated that Toshio offered to take photos of us at various locales including Meiji Shrine. One of the highlights from the day was sushi lunch at the Tsukiji outer fish market. We finished our tour at the Imperial Palace, which rounded out our step count at a whopping 22 km! Overall, my husband and I were very happy with Toshio as our guide.


Dear Christine Thank you so very much for your kind review! You are such a nice couple that I really had a good time with you. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Next time, please come to Japan with your baby! Thank you! Toshio

“ Review of our tour guide, Toshio ”

We had an excellent time during our tour with Toshio. He came prepared, he was able to make changes when we needed due to time constraints and he clearly went out of his way to make our time with him memorable. I would highly recommend Toshio to any one needing a guide on their trip to Tokyo. His English was excellent .


Dear Newell Thank you very much for your wonderful review!! I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I really enjoyed myself with you!! Please let me know when you come to Japan next time. I’m looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you, Toshio
