My wife Wilma and I were most fortunate to find Toshio as a guide. He met and returned us to our hotel took us to see the Cherry Blossoms in two spectacular venues. He took us to lunch at a Sushi restaurant that was obviously of good reputation with the locals as the tables were continually occupied. Toshio was very knowledgeable about Tokyo and it’s amenities. In addition he was a sensitive and attentive guide. How fortunate were we to have an individual guide rather than be part of a group following a person with a number on a stick. Thank you Toshio for a wonderful day. Wilma and Bill Pimm Australia.

Dear Robyn & Bill Ridley Thank you very much for giving me a very good review. Although it was a short time, I had a very good time with you, a very nice couple!! I am looking forward to seeing you again!! I would appreciate it if you contact me next time. Thank you, Toshio
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
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 .
