About

(English)  ↓Spanish version down below ↓

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.

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.

“ Toshi, un gran profesional para conocer Japón con detalle ”

La experiencia con Toshi en Japón ha sido maravillosa. Hemos hecho con el un tour entero por Tokio y una excursión al día siguiente a Nikko. En ambos casos ha sido un gusto enorme. Puntual, amable, cultísimo, super organizado, con un castellano perfecto y siempre dispuesto a hacer nuestra estancia especial, explicando todo sobre su país y cultura y dispuesto a aprovechar cada momento del día para enseñarnos cosas nuevas. Sin duda un acierto y enormemente recomendable.
