I think the tour could have been better if Toshiro was more enthusiastic to take us around.
Sorry for your comment. The museum was hard for me to show you around as a son, reminding me my late father who was a navy. Toshi
Toshiro is an highly intelligent man that is very knowledgeable and fun to be around. We went to Tsukiji market, Asakusa, Ginza and so many other places that I lost count. What makes Toshiro unique is his perfect English, high knowledge of food and restaurants around Tokyo and easy going personality. Toshiro really knows so much and even advises you on authentic versus not high quality food which allows you to avoid tourist traps. I spoke with Toshiro for literally hours and hours and it really felt like spending time with an old friend. Toshiro is special in which we try a variety of different food while on the tour and end at a very delicious restaurant. He even helped me book a train to Kyoto. Toshiro is highly professional, punctional and attentive and I truly recommend him to others... read more
Dear Christina san, Thanks so much for your compliment. I don’t know how to thank you enough for appointing me and myself enjoyed showing you around and sorry for not able to paying attention to your condition. pls consult with a hotel staff for any help to get better ready for Kyoto trip. Hoping your nice trip for remaining days in Japan and safely go back to LA.
I had asked TripleLights if they had guides who spoke Mandarin and they had suggested a few names. When I wrote to Toshiro, I had a number of replies and I was assured from the correspondences that he took his guiding very seriously. Toshiro is considerate and kind. He ensured that my mother (75 years of age) could understand him through his spoken Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkien dialects. I did also communicate that she had walking challenges so when it came to taking the stairs at the subways, Toshiro always made it a point to look for escalators or elevators. Mom had 2 trips with Toshiro, both of which lasted 4 to 5 hours, so that it would not be too exhausting for her. She also could only start her adventures from 10am onwards, so Toshiro was kind enough to time the itinerary as... read more
Hi Joanne san, It was nice guiding your mom while first day under heavy rain walked almost one hour. Besides I haven’t spoken mandarin almost a month (second day was bit better). Your complement gave me a lot of energy and motivation. Now many subway stations are constructing elevators and escalators so your mom forced to walk up and down staircases. next year more convenient towards Olympic. Welcome back to Tokyo again next year. Thanks again for your nomination. Toshi
I made an unconventional request that Toshiro accompany me on a private factory tour as a translator. He was prompt in his response and even did background research. The day of the tour Toshiro was punctually awaiting our arrival. He was patient despite there being a miscommunication about the tour time. His translation skills were excellent and truly made the tour an excellent experience. Afterwards he helped us navigate our way home. I couldn’t recommend Toshiro’s services more strongly.
Dear Nolan san, Thanks so much for your evaluation, giving me 5-star. I was worrying if I can translate in case you were pro or working furniture biz as I have limited knowledge and ability to translate. Any case it was lucky that there were big shopping mall next to the factory . Hoping both of you are okay and resumed working days. Looking forward to serving you again ! Toshio
There are really no words to describe our day with Toshiro. He started the day off by meeting us in our hotel lobby. We hopped to get a tour of Tokyo but we received so much more, he taught us how to use the subway,(used that the rest of the time we were in Japan). Toshiro had the whole day planned out but was quick to change plans to suit our needs. He showed us things we've seen in pictures and on travel channels, touching on the touristy aspect of Japan but also diving into it's rich history and ethnicity. Museums, Shrines, small backstreet eateries. We fully covered Tokyo from North to South, East to West. No stone was left unturned. On a scale of 1-10, Toshiro is an 11!!
Dear Michael san, Thanks so much for your complements and I’m so happy that you have enjoyed Tokyo. Just regret I showed you too many places within limited time. Hope you can spare more time in future to trip to Hakone and Kamakura while it takes a few hours from center of Tokyo, fully worth to be there. It was my pleasure to guide your family and really hoping to have guide next time to show you more interesting sightseeing places. Very best regards to you and family members. Toshiro
Toshiro is Very patient, very kind and very professional guide, we had a wonderful trip to Tokyo with Toshiro help. 小岭先生非常和蔼，非常耐心，非常专业，我们在东京度过了美好的行程。
杨誉先生、 谢谢您给我五星级的评价，不敢当不敢当。飞机飞得很顺利了吧。 我也高兴跟你们见面了。包括小孩们 你们大家的文化程度很高。希望有机会的话再次也当你们的导游。 谢谢你们??? 小岭
Thanks Toshiro for your insight and help throughout the day. We really enjoyed spending the day with you.
Dear Mark san & Family, Thanks very much for your compliment. Hoping to be your guide again someday ! Best regards Toshi
My client loved their tour of Tokyo with Toshiro. I shall certainly be using his services again in the future.
Dear Ann san, Thank for you kind compliment. Sorry about tight schedule and hope I can introduce other sightseeing spots next time. Looking forward to serving you again ! Best regards Toshi
Great guid trip to Tatsumi and Daikoku Futo Parking Area. My son and I got to see a great exhibition of Japanese car culture
Dear Todd san, Thank you so much for giving me 5 stars. I was surprised at your knowledge and information on food and I enjoyed real hamburger. Hoping you to be your guide next time as well. also pls give my best regards to every member of your family. Very best regards Toshi
Toshiro was very nice and accommodating. However It would have been nicer had he suggested some off the beaten path things to see. He left everything up to us as opposed to making suggestions. We also like guides who are passionate and excited by their home city and we didn’t feel that passion.
Dear Bill san, Thanks for your review and tried to be more passionate in future. Since you’re a magician and cudnt find out your interesting places other than Magic. Besides I knew you’ve been to almost all of sightseeing places on your first day. any case hope you had safely smoothly got back to hotel by subway. Best regards Toshiro
Toshiro was beyond amazing. If I could rate more than 5 stars I would. Despite all the last minute group changes, Toshiro was kind, understanding and fulfilled his role as a tour guide splendidly. He had accomplished the special requests that were asked, provided additional and important information about location when needed and even went the extra mile to help with future travel. I am hard pressed to say if there is a better guide out there. Toshiro will definitely be the best when trying to experience Japan.
Dear Angeli san, How nice of you to comment like that. It was so sorry too hot to get to the shopping mall in Odaiba as no choice but to walk outside from station. I’m delighted to serve as a guide again for you near future and looking forward that. Thanks again for your kind comments. Very best regards Toshiro
Toshiro san 靈活適應客人的需求。他精通普通話和廣東話。在旅遊目的地和商店，他幫助翻譯。 我駕駛租車，他常在看我們的路線是否正確。 Highly recommend :) Toshiro san was flexible and very accommodating to guests’ needs. He is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. At our sightseeing destinations and during shopping, he was very helpful in translating for us. I drove a rental car and he was attentive all the way to make sure we were on the right route. Highly recommend :)
Dear Gary san, Thank you very much for your good review on me. I have decided once again to improve myself by studying continuously to serve customers better. Looking very much to guiding you very soon. Best Regards Toshi
