Date: May 14/19

So glad we booked our Tokyo tour with Kenji. We had a wonderful day seeing all the sights( Kenji was knowledgable on every aspect) a delicious noodle lunch was provided in a local restaurant and finally a relaxing river cruise with an unexpected helicopter display over the bay. A day to remember. Kenji looked after us and guided us through out the day on all the various modes of transportation. A big thank you from both of us.

I think Kenji did a wonderful job of taking us around Tokyo. We saw--in particular--the Asakusa Kannon temple, the Meiji shrine, the Shinjuku Gyeon park, and Shibuya crossing, as well as the Ginza area. In addition, he took us to an excellent noodle shop for lunch. His English was excellent, he conveyed the essentials of Shintoism and Buddhism as well as the historical backgrounds of the shrines. Given that it was Golden Week, he did this all under difficult circumstances of huge crowds.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, Thank you so much for your favorable comment and rating. We were able to visit the Imperial Palace Plaza when the new Emperor Naruhito addressed the people who gathered in front of the Imperial Palace to celebrate his accession to the throne, although we had no time to enter the palace because of too long a queue to join. Yes, everywhere was very crowded on that day in Tokyo. I enjoyed your company very much. Kenji

Our two full-day tours with Kenji went very well. Yes, he is a 5-star guide who was prompt, polite, knowledgeable, and most accommodating. We had given Kenji several ideas as to what we wanted to see and we were able to accomplish our goals. Using a wheelchair presents some logistical problems but we were able to navigate the subway and train systems with his aid. He is a lovely gentleman and we would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Our two days in Tokyo with your wife on a wheelchair made me realize again that Tokyo's subway system is not adequately equipped with elevators. It was a hard work but a very fulfilling job for us(you and me) to carry her during the tour. I greatly appreciate your company - you as a gentle husband and your wife as a warmhearted lady. Kenji

I was able to arrange a 1-day tour with Kenji on very short notice. He was very responsive and on-time for the start of the tour at my hotel the next day. We were able to visit the highlights of Tokyo by walking and traveling by Metro. He was able to provide historical context during the tour, which was quite informative. He was also adaptable adding in en a traffic stop before the end of the day as we still had some time. A most enjoyable experience seeing both the old and new of Tokyo.

It was a pleasure to tour with Kenji for two days! I let him know my cultural interests and he planned the perfect tour. My favorite site was the Tokyo-Edo Open Air Architectural Museum. The buildings were well-preserved and fabulous. He helped with restaurants and food during the tour and at the end of the day. He went out of his way to find a bookstore in the Giza that would have a book I wanted. Kenji is a kind, knowledgeable gentleman -with boundless energy,

Kenji was prompt at our hotel and we agreed the shape of our day . Close to the fish market so we started there and found it really fascinating - completely different to European markets but without our guide's encouragement, I doubt we would have tried all the free samples, not realising they were all tasting samples with no obligation to buy - try that in the UK! Rest of the day included many temples, the subway and Emperor's gardens. Ramen lunch (350Y) and despite weather we had a great day Thx

Kenji-San is a delightful, fun and informative guide. His organization and knowledge of Tokyo allowed us to see way more than we could have on our own, and he made an 8 hour day go by quickly thanks to his sense of humor and historical knowledge. On our way to a museum he arranged our journey so we that saw a traditional Japanese harvest festival parade. It was an unforgettable experience that wouldn't have happened without Kenji-San. We recommend him highly.

Kenji was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He kept the tour flowing but stopped to answer any questions you had the best that he could. His tour is a great mix of old and new culture. We booked him for two days which was great because we really started to feel comfortable using the subway system and navigating by signs and landmarks. The second day was a bit shopping-heavy (we aren't shoppers), but Kenji will adjust the tour anyway you like. Thanks Kenji!

Kenji was very helpful in showing me around Tokyo in a short amount of time. Although I only had a few hours during my flight layover, Kenji was able to put together an itinerary that showed me many of the major sites. He provided interesting commentary and optimized our schedule to fit in as much as possible before heading back to the airport on time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joelle, A delay in customs and others in Narita Airport made our stay in Tokyo shorter by nearly one hour. However, I was able to take you to almost all the planned sights, thanks to your kind cooperation: you walked fast and allowed me to take a taxi. It was a really nice day for me to be with you.

Kenji, took us to all of the places we were scheduled to see plus a local Temple he knew about. His English is passable and was able to communicate with us. We were disappointed with the tour for one reason we hired him specifically to translate a tour that was in Japanese at the Imperial Palace during this tour he did not translate as expected.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry to hear that I was not a good translator of the guided walking tour. I think I could not fully carry out my job for two reasons. One is lack of my English and the other is a strange situation on the part of the Palace. On that day, some 340 people took part in the tour, but only one guide was available. Physically, it was not possible for one guide to handle such a huge audience. I often lost sight of him in the crowd. But I have taken your negative comments seriously. Thank you. Kenji
