Hi, I am Toshiko! (Also Toshi or T-chan for short.) I am a retired fire officer from Tokyo. I coordinated educational visits to Tokyo for various people such as delegates from fire departments across the globe. I speak a little Spanish, too.
I like to meet and help people, so I volunteer in my spare time. For example, I joined clean-up activities at a tsunami devastated area in 2011, helped provide entertainment events at evacuation camps, and took international visitors around the area (over 15 times).
I love to share a lot of happy moments with my guests. Tokyo has many hotspots. I will help you enjoy the city and maximize your visit to Tokyo! Besides regular sightseeing tours, I also offer two unique tours. The first is a home visit to see real Tokyoite life including sush- making. The second is an educational tour of an earthquake simulator ride and the Tokyo Fire Museum. You'll learn how Japanese prepare for emergencies.

I look forward to seeing you!

“ Let Toshi (T-chan) plan and guide in Tokyo and you're guaranteed an amazing experience ”

We had two wonderful days with Toshi (T-chan) and we met a tour guide who knew her work very well From the contact stage through email. In the way she prepared us for the tours. How to help the manager in Tokyo. And of course the fascinating walks and places we saw. Highly recommended with a five-star rating. Traveling with Toshi (T-chan) is a great experience

“ Best Japan Guide ”

Toshi was a great guide, who truly cared that we saw all we could see on our tour. She is very knowledgeable and it is very easy to communicate with her. She made our tour in Yokohama the best tour which we had on our entire Japan trip. Thank you, Toshi.

“ customized Tokyo tour ”

we had a great time with Toshi, who took us through inner and outer Tsukiji market, the elevated train to Odaiba, water bus to Asakusa and finally walk through Asakusa and Sensoji temple area. She was friendly, very knowledgeable and also so helpful in helping us plan more things to do in Tokyo. She even followed up by email to make sure we had directions to where we were going next. She was an excellent guide, and we would not hesitate to book her again.
