My name is Toshi Nakahara.

I am certified tour guide for both English and Spanish.

I have lived in USA for 15 years in total starting from Iowa when I was in a high school as an AFS exchange student and later in Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco and finally in New Jersey as a business man.

I learned Spanish at Osaka University for Foreign Studies for 4 years and lived in Mexico, Venezuela and Ecuador for more than 5 years in total, and travelled some other countries in Latin America and Spain.

I am a certified Wine sommelier and quite knowledgeable about Japanese Sake.

So in addition to the regular tour of metropolitan Tokyo area and its vicinity, I can take you to very authentic and popular restaurants where you can enjoy wonderful world of Japanese cuisine with some local drink. That is my strength, so to speak.

I can do one day or half day tour for weekends for Metropolitan Tokyo area, but also can cater to the needs of people who want to be guided to some deep, casual and reasonably priced "Izakaya" style drinking places during weekdays after 5:00PM if I am open. I can also guide, if schedule allows, Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Mt. Fuji vecinity, Nikko and some popular places in western Japan like Kyoto, Nara and Osaka as I lived there for many years.

I enjoy talking about many topics such as Japanese culture and of your own country.

My motto is to make visiting friends from overseas experience memorable moments and make them feel at home and happy.

Me llamo Toshi Nakahara.

Yo soy el guía turística certificado de Español y de Ingles.

Estudié la lengua española en la Universidad de Osaka para estudios extranjeros por 4 años y un año en la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
Después, tuve la oportunidad de trabajar en Venezuela por 2 años y en Ecuador por 2 años.

Soy también sommelier certificado de vino y tengo bastante conocimiento en Sake.

No solamente poder guíar los visitantes extranjeros por la zona popular de Tokio y su vecinidad durante los dias al fin de la semana, puedo tambien introducir a unos bares o tavernas típicos conocidos como "Izakaya" en los días de la semana después de 5 de la tarde.

Me gusta explicar sobre muchos temas culturales del Japón y conocer culturas de sus países.

Mi motto es servirles a ustedes en la forma mas agradable y memorable haciendo
todo lo posible para que sean ustedes feliz y satisfecho.

"Con un poco de vino, me siento divino"

“ Kamakura con Toshi ”

Un grupo de 6 amigos, 2 americanas y 4 mexicanos, pasamos un día con Toshi como nuestro guía, a fin de conocer Kamakura. El plan aprobado fue cumplido desde las 9:00 hrs hasta las 6:00 pm. Nuestra visita fue muy satisfactoria, llenándose las expectativas, por lo que lo recomendamos ampliamente.


Don Cecilio. Muchas gracias por su calificación! Que siga buen viaje!

“ Mercado Tsukiji viendo ronqueo de at?n, Asakusa(templo Sensoji) y calle kappabashi, ceremonia templo bufista, comida t?pica y paseo por Omote Sando, Santuario de Meiji y Sibuya ( famosa Scramble Crossing) ”

Somos una familia de Barcelona (España). Una experiencia muy muy recomendable con el guia Toshihiko, un gran profesional. Muy bien aprovechado el día, nos ha gustado todo pero especialmente destacamos el ronqueo del atún en el mercado Tsukiji, ver ceremonia tradicional en un templo budista y probar alimentos típicos de Japón (buenísimo el dulce típico pan de melón y la tortilla dulce). Muchas gracias por esta experiencia y por enseñarnos un poquito de la cultura de tu país.


Gracias a USTEDES Fue un gran día para mi tambien. Seguramente, cuando voy a Barcelona próxima vez, voy a contactar. Que continúen viaje con mucha diversión y suerte!! Gracias!!!

“ Having never been to Tokyo, I wanted to have a person guide me as efficiently as ossicle to the things that I was most interested in seeing. ”

Toshi enabled me to make efficient use of my 48 available hours in Tokyo. I could not have navigated the sites, subway or fabulous food & wine destinations I experienced without him. Toshi was a delight to spend time with and I will be recommending him to all our friends in Melbourne, Australia who will be visiting Tokyo.


It was a delight to guide you around Tokyo. I enjoyed it very much too. Please come back again with your family. Japan always welcomes you!! I welcome your friends also!
