Our group of 6 engaged Uemitsu to for a 1-1/2 day tour of Tokyo. His English is articulate and his knowledge of Tokyo and the subway system was invaluable to our group. He also modified our itinerary based on the weather to ensure we had the best viewing experience of the sights we wanted to see. Uemitsu was punctual, personable and knowledgeable. He also has a wonderful sense of humor and made our sightseeing exciting and fun. We would highly recommend Uemitsu to anyone looking for a guide and, given the opportunity, would engage his services again.
Dear Ellen, Thank you for your heartful comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with me. Looking forward to seeing you in the near future. Best regards, Uemitsu Kageyama
Uemitsu was very thoughtful and knowledgeable throughout our tour. He explained very well and showed us the Tokyo transportation system as it was our first time in Japan. He also made extra effort to find those parks with full cherry blossom since we arrived 1.5. week after the blooming in Tokyo area. We enjoyed our first time in Japan and glad we were able to use the train system on our own throughout the visit even in Kyoto .

This is our first time visiting Tokyo and we are very thankful that we chose Triple Lights. Our tour guide, Uemitsu Kageyama, provided us with an excellent experience!! He has our highest recommendation!! We had many things we wanted to see while in Tokyo and we really appreciated that the tour could be specifically designed toward our interests. Also we appreciated that the tour began and ended at our hotel. We were staying at the Tokyo Hilton in Shinjuku. The first stop on our tour was snapping a quick picture with the statue of Hachiko the dog followed by the scramble intersection at Shibuya crossing. We made the crossing and then our guide took us to a great spot above to take photos. We enjoyed the Meiji-jingu shrine (Shintoism) within a majestic forest. This was a beauti... read more
Dear Chris, Thank you for your detailed comments and evaluation. I am happy to know that your family could move from Shijuku to Maihama by yourselves.
