Hello, my name is Koichiro (You can call me Koji:). I've stayed in Southern California for 3 years and graduated from an American college there.

I'm more than happy to introduce you to hidden gems, authentic restaurants, and bars in Tokyo (Tokyo has the best food!).
I'd like to guide you as my real friend and will offer sheer hospitality and friendship to you so that you can truly value the moments in Tokyo. I'll explain Japanese things through the eyes of local Japanese so that you can have clearer ideas on what they really are.

Koji took me and my son round Tokyo in October and was charming and attentive throughout. A typhoon meant he adjusted the tour to be mainly inside activities at the last minute. He also tailored the tour to the interests of my 16yr old son which was a highly successful. Excellent English and the thought and consideration shown to his clients interests were highly commendable
Hi Stuart, I'm glad that I could introduce you and Alex to Tokyo despite the stormy weather by a typhoon! We could take advantage of it because places were much less crowded:) Thank you and I hope you'll keep enjoying Tokyo and RWC to the fullest👍 Koji
Met up with Koji at the hotel as agreed. Felt comfortable with him from the start. Our itinerary for the day had to be rearranged slightly and Koji was very accommodating and helpful to the change. Really appreciated the time and effort he put in for us for the whole day. He took us to a really good place for tempura and soba :) Exactly what we were looking for. He showed us around the city at a good pace. Not feeling rushed or too slow. Would totally recommend Koji as a guide to any of my friends who would be going to Tokyo in the future. Arigato Koji!! C y’around!! (^__^)/“””
Hi Donna, I'm glad that I could have an opportunity to get to know you&Anca and could introduce you to Tokyo on your 1st day! Thank you for everything and I hope to see you again to explore Tokyo in a much deeper sense😁 Koji
Koji is friendly, practical, organized and flexible! He could step up or slow down a tour and is very attentive to smallest details. Very personable, he would answer all questions and have a rationale for his answers to my wife’s satisfaction!
Hi Yana, I'm glad that I could get to know both of you and could introduce you to Tokyo, Hakone and my favorite restaurants in the 3 days! I believe we can meet again in the nearest future👍 Thank you, Koji
I had the opportunity to spend a whole day (12h) with Koji. Best decision I made. I could visit many places around Tokyo, try different foods, and learn a lot about history, culture, gastronomy etc. Koji is a truly phenomenal guide, who knows a lot about Japan and about how to keep guests entertained during the day. Also, there is no language barrier, as he is fluent in English. When I return to Tokyo, I’ll definitely ask for his assistance again.
Hi Erick, it was an honor for me that I could get to know you and could share awesome time by introducing you to Tokyo. I'd be more than happy to recreate the great time when you visit Japan again. Thank you for everything!! Koji
Thank you Koji for this tour which you personalized for us
Hi Laurence, I'm glad that I could take you and your family to some off-the-beaten spots in Tokyo! I hope you enjoyed the time and wish you a nice trip👍 Thank you, Koji
