“ Tokyo in a day ”

Yoshihisa put together a tailor made itinerary which worked perfectly incorporating the highlights of Tokyo. We communicated well, exchanging ideas and information all in a very prompt and timely manner given the time difference. Yoshihisa is well travelled, charming and informative, l wouldn't hesitate to book him again or recommend.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Linda for your generous words. It was really an exciting moment that I traveled with you in Tokyo. Your enthusiasm of knowing about this city and country encouraged me a lot and made me feel rewarded when we finished our tour. Though we have covered a good part of the city, there are a lot more to dig into, so I trully look forward to seeing you again and share this great moment again with you. Yoshihisa

“ A tour guide and a friend. ”

The weather is cold and its raining, but this guy never stops showing us the views of Narita. It was almost 7pm when the tour was over, we’re about to leave Japan at the departure lobby when i found out that my bag is missing and realized i forgot the bag in the restaurant where we eat ramen. Yoshihisa is the first person entered into my mind to ask for help. He answered quickly without hesitation, he took the train, went back to the restaurant and brought my missing bag within 30min. I dont know how i will thank this guy that time. It’s our first time in Japan with a good guide, very professional, he got knowledge, speaks very calm and friendly, Its unforgettable. I highly recommend Yoshihisa for those who wanted to visit Japan, you can’t go wrong. Thank you so much Mister Yoshihi... read more

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Ronel for having stopt over to Narita despite your tight Schedule and also for your generous words. The weather was wet and cold, but was warm in my heart. From the moment that we met at the gate, I didn't feel like we met for the first time. I was glad that you enjoyed every feature of the temple, the gate, the insence burner, the tower, the front market etc. Yes, the incident at the end was a bit surprise, but even pleasant. It even added a good memory of our friendship. Now I can't believe that it was such a short period of time that we were together. You stay always in my heart with a good memory of an evening in Narita, and I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you . Yoshihisa

“ Very Helpful ”

I had Yoshihisa meet my family of 9 at the airport and get us to our accomodation in Shinagawa. He helped us get our train tickets, suica card and even hire a mobile phone. Fantastic commmunication. Highly recommend.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Serena for your generous comment. It was really a fun for me too to be with a family like yours. I hope you all had great time in Japan. Though it was unfortunate that we missed an Opportunity to spend a full day traveling in Tokyo because of the volcanic eruption in the Philippines, I am hoping that we have another Opportunity to meet and spend great time together like we did this time. Wishing all the best to you and your family, Yoshihisa

“ Delightful e-bike tour of downtown Tokyo on Dec. 24th ”

Yoshihisa, presented the major historic sites as well as the charming modern Christmas market, and Tokyo Tower. The views were awesome from the 46th floor of a Tokyo office. E-biking was fun and easy, daughter (17 years) was pleased. It was an unforgettable tour, with his insightful description of present and past Japanese culture, politics, and trends. We finished with a satisfying dinner at a Japanese Udon restaurant. Had no surprises and were sent all the details of the pricing for the tour. After the tour, he guided us to transport to our hotel. Whole experience was memorable. Thank you Yoshihisa!

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Norine for your generous words. Contrasting to the beauty of illuminations of the night before Chiristmas, roads were dark an hilly at times. But you were so good at riding and patient too even after a long flight to Tokyo. Apart from the views, I too was particularly glad that we had time to talk and exchange ideas about many things. It is my utmost pleasure if some of my explanations or translations were of some help for you to look at things during your stay in Japan. I too was very much inspired by your intelligence and thoughtfulness. I now recall that this was my biggest luck to mark the end of year past and for the coming new year that I was able to be and to spend some hours with persons like you. I wish all the happiness for the year 2020 for you and your daughter. Looki... read more

“ very dedicated guide! ”

We had a great time with Yoshihisa-san! Booking communication was great - very fast and prompt replies as well as suggestions to help make the tour more efficient. Instructions, details, inclusions/exclusions were communicated clearly Tour itself - Yoshihisa-san was early, gave clear and good introductions and explanations for the sights - also brought along a file with many printed pages of things he wants to elaborate on or to show us certain things (this was very good and helped us understand things much better!! I thought this was an amazing touch) - pace was very good and manageable even though we were kind of rushing a little - a lot of flexibility and adaptation - he even went without lunch just so we could see the things that we wanted and be at our final destination at a c... read more

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Yingyin for your kind review. I appreciate all your words that you commented despite your busy schedule. It was indeed one of the best days for me as a guide to have been with you and your parents. You were so cooperative, understanding, and generous too. I was inspired a lot by your family ties that are getting rare in this country, and your dedication to your parents made me feel warm in my heart even though the weather was a little wet and cold. I kept thinking whether there were more places that I could have recommended for your next visit, but I have not yet arrived to a better idea. The day with you stays always as a pleasant and warm memory in my heart. I wish you all the best and look forward to another opprtunity that I can be with you sometime in the future.

“ Our new friend in Tokyo! ”

Yoshi is a knowledgeable guide and a caring, kind man. We felt like we were touring with a friend. He was very helpful and responsive in helping us with our arrangements before we visited Japan and during our stay. He has a great command of the English language and made our days in Tokyo very entertaining and fun. Yoshi was pending our every need and beyond, he wanted us to have a great experience in Japan and we certainly did with him as our host and guide. I recommend him without hesitation. Thank you, Yoshi!

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Pat, for all your generous words. It was the most pleasant moment that I was travelling in Tokyo with persons like you and was an honor for me too. You were so cooperative, understainding and patient. You were challenging too to have survived Tokyo's perplexing underground network. And also I am particularly glad that you finally “met” Mt.Fuji! Although I am sure that you have already covered all the highlights in Tokyo, since there are a lot more to further explore in this attractive city, I am already hoping for another opportunity to browse through together. Wising all the best for you and all members of your family. Thank you again. Yoshihisa

“ Very Knowledgeable and Professional, G-Cans Facility Tour ”

Mr. Yoshihisa was very accommodating during my tour of the Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel (also known as the G-Cans facility). I had short notice before the tour, but Mr. Yoshihisa was quick to respond with his availability for being a translator, since the public tour was only in Japanese. Translation was reliable during the tour. I appreciate his recognition of my interest of the facility.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Roger for your kind review. It was indeed a very special and exicitng experience, especially on a day just a few days after big rainfall. We were able to experience the real functioning of this underground donjon.I am so exitec that I was with a person like you, so enthusiastic to know many things about this facility. Also I felt very honored to know that my translation helped to know better about this rare underground shrine. I hope we meet again. Thank you.

“ ONE OF THE BEST PRIVATE GUIDES I’VE HAD ! ”

I am very active senior from New York & have travelled extensively with my late wife and just finished a wonderful solo trip to JAPAN. I had the pleasure of having Yoshihisa as my guide for a 1 day trip to KAMAKURA, from Tokyo. Of the 5 different guides I had in JAPAN, he was the best. Yoshi is an extremely intelligent man who was a pleasure to be with. Very informative. I can say a lot more but I believe I made myself clear.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Alan for your most generous words. I feel it was a greatest ever fortunate to have been able to meet with a person like you. We have a word coming from zen buddhism saying Ichigo Ichie, meaning though we may never see each other again, our memory of encounter stays forever. Together with many other inspirations you gave me, including your love to your late wife, I will not forget about you and a beautiful day together in Kamakura. Thanking again and wishing you all the best. Yoshihisa

“ Tokyo night tour ”

Phenomenal night tour he knows exactly how to get from place to place without a wasted step. He’ll be showing you things on the way to where you are going. His English is great and I don’t think the tour could have been any better. Well worth the money, this guy is great!

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Tom for your generous words. Despite the storm of the night before, we were lucky to have been able to spend a great evening, fewer people, short queue etc. I too have enjoyed the tour with you. I hope you have not been too much disturbed by the traffic to the airport, because later I found that trains may have been stopped longer than expected. Hoping to be able to see you again for your next visit to Tokyo. Thank you again. Yoshihisa

“ Best day trip I’ve ever done ”

What a excellent decision to have Yoshihisa show me his beautiful country. We met at the train station and did a e bike 6 hour tour around Tokyo. This covered new modern side of Tokyo and old traditional side which was amazing. Yoshihisa’s knowledge is unalbelievable. Every question I could ask was answered. Do not hesitate to have him show you around Tokyo. Thank you again my friend, like I said in our goodbyes , you gave me a beautiful memory I will never forget!

Yoshihisa:

Thank you George for your generous comments. It was a great moment for me to travel around Tokyo with a person like you. As you have commented, there are many aspects in this city, and I was very much encouraged and pleased by your enthusiasm to know about Tokyo. Although we have covered quite a good part of Tokyo, but there are more of secrets of this city and also depending on the season, it changes its face. So, I truly look forward to the next opportunity to meet you. Thank you.

“ Great half-day bicycle ride around Tokyo ”

What a great experience! We contacted Yoshihisa while we were in Tokyo and told him what we had already visited on our own. We had done the Sky Hop Bus and visited quite a bit on our own using the Metro. We wanted to see Sumo and lesser known spots. He offered two options, one by e-assist bikes and one walking tour. We picked the bike tour and did not regret it even if we don’t regularly ride bicycles at home. With their electric assistance, the bikes were fast and easy, even in small hills. Yoshihisa had prepared a tour that started and finished at Tokyo Station, close to our hotel. We started at 7:00 in order to catch Sumo practice that finished at 8:00. Even if we watched from outside the stable, the windows and door were open and we had a clear view and heard them. Some even went... read more

Yoshihisa:

Thank you Stéphane for all your generous words. I am pleased that my recommendation was gladly accepted by you and you enjoyed it. Indeed, I too enjoyed a lot this fresh morning tour with you. It was a great honor and priviledge for me as a guide to be with persons like you, with thoughtfulness and so much passion to know about Tokyo. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation to start earlier than the original schedule, a minor change of timeflame therafter, and above all the flexibility and patience shown at the end of the tour. The buddhist ceremony was impressive Indeed, and I felt greatly rewarded by your interest which was way beyond tourists eyes, and was more a real approach to the spirituality of the local people. The chant at loud of a person behind us added an accent f... read more

“ Fantastic Experience! ”

With only 24 hours to spend in Tokyo, we reached out to Yoshihisa for ideas around how to cover as much of Tokyo as we possibly could in such a short time frame. Yoshi recommended an electric bike tour that would hit the highlights in the 2 half days we were there and we simply could not have done it without him! Yoshi put together a great itinerary and was a joy to be around. I would highly recommend Yoshi to anyone visiting Tokyo.

Yoshihisa:

Thank you very much Bryan for having stopped in Tokyo and spending time with me despite all your tight schedule. And thank you again for your generous words as to our tour together in Tokyo. I too felt priviledged and was very happy to be with persons like you, so enthusiastic to learn and taste(!) the whole charm of this interesting city together. Though I am pretty much sure that we covered most of the places including the ones that ordinary tourists may not be abe to access, there are a lot more of the secrets and mysteries that I wish to share with you. I trully look forward to the next opportunity to see you again. Thank you.

My tours basically start and end in the Tokyo area. Please note if start from outside Tokyo, transportation fee (to and from) for guide incurred will be added. I would also appreciate being asked about the availability before booking.
