Our first time tour to both sides of Tokyo were well covered in two days time! Janichi was punctual, and in both days, took liberty to extend beyond the agreed 8 hours per day without asking for renumeration. Aside from the places that we initaially asked to go to, he had inserted more places we couldn't have gone to without his initiative. He has an ever-present smile and he answered our queries well with his good English. He's also very energetic and walked fastest amongst the pack, careful enough not to lose any of his ward. We traveled on the subways most of the time and Janichi was excellently versed with the routes, trains and transfers, he even taught us how to navigate the Tokyo station for our next day's own travel to Disney Sea from Shinjuku. On the trains. We had so much fun with our Tokyo tour and we feel we owe Triplelights and Janichi so much that we would love to play host to Janichi and his family should they want to visit the Philippines, too, one day. We wish Janichi well, and we would lget him as our guide again on our next Japan travels.We would also like to recommend him to good friends.
Junichi was an excellent guide who went to a lot of detail in his planning and preparation of our tour. He was punctual. He was considerate in finding lifts and escalators at the Subway stations as one of our party had slight mobility issues. He gave us much information on the history and local customs and Japanese language, He took us to many interesting places including very nice parks, gardens, Shrines, River cruise, Fish market for lunch, busy shopping streets and the Shibuya scramble crossing. He gave us lots of experiences in using the subway system. His English was very good. Due to our full itinerary, he stayed on with us for more than 1 1/2 hours extra time to make sure we saw everything and got back to our hotel safely. We would highly recommend Junichi as a tour guide to any other tourists considering Tokyo day tours.
