Kenji stayed overnight to get up early and take us to the fishmarket first thing in the morning before we left Tokyo to start our Japan touring. We only spent a short time with him. But looking forward to returning to Tokyo and learning all about the city from him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ivy, Many thanks for your favorable comment on me. I will do my best to help you learn all about Tokyo early in January. Kenji

Kenji is a knowledgeable, organized and friendly guide. He patiently answered all of our questions and did a wonderful job of teaching us a lot about Japanese history and culture. He suggested a delicious local noodle shop for lunch that has been in business for over 100 years. Kenji was also helpful in recommending other sites to see during our time in Tokyo. I recommend Kenji's tour as a great way to get an overview of Tokyo.

Kenji had a lot of energy and worked hard to make sure that we saw everything on that agenda as promised.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, One important requirement for a guide is to help a traveler to see everything he or she wants to see. I am glad I was able to do that. Thank you. Kenji

Absolutely wonderful. Don't miss the opportunity to learn from Kenji's great depth of knowledge about Tokyo and Japan. We had an amazing day from start to finish touring the best attractions in Tokyo. Kenji is an absolute gentleman who thoroughly enjoys sharing his vast knowledge with his guests. Thank you, Kenji for an amazing start to our visit to Tokyo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael and Cara, You were the great travelers to me. Soon after meeting you at the hotel, I found we were already on good terms with each other. Both of you were extremely friendly to me and very attentive to what I said about the tour sites we visited. You were the ideal travelers any tour guides would like to spend time with. Thank you for everything. Kenji

Despite the heat we really enjoyed our day tour of Tokyo. Kenji was very knowledgeable and interesting and looked after us really well - doing the main sights, but also taking us to a lovely little Soba restaurant and accommodating the desire of some of our party to visit a hedgehog cafe. The heat was really intense and as we had some 70+ grandparents with us we requested to finish our tour a little earlier, but Kenji was more than prepared to continue! Kenji really enhanced our time in Tokyo - thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dawn, Thank you so much for giving a rating of "excellent." Yes, we were exposed to intense heat on that day, but all of your family members consisting of three generations were so cooperative that I was able to fulfill my assignment. I am very glad you enjoyed my tour. Thank you. Kenji

We highly recommend Kenji. Our tour was far more than seeing the sites, it was about understanding how historical events, religion, leaders, and the basic nature of the people influenced the country. Kenji made getting around easy; we had lots of fun talking with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeanne, Thank you so much for highly recommending me. I enjoyed two days with you in Tokyo. Jim, your husband, asked me many questions on sensitive questions regarding Japan's religion, work, family, community, and so on. I felt very hard to answer them immediately but enjoyed spending time for it. Kenji

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

Kenji was a delight. He was fun and kind and open to having an adventure with us. Climbing through an interactive exhibit and answering all of our questions. He was sweet to grab a child's hand so we wouldn't get separated in the subway and his energy was astounding. He showed us all around Tokyo and saw us back to our hotel. We joke that Kenji is still there waving us into the hotel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tommy, Thank you very much for the highest rating for me. I took a picture of your family in a subway, which shows your two cute children were having a lot of fun with their parents. A very good memory! Kenji

He was also very informative and gave us an insight into Japanese history and culture. He also gave us invaluable advice on what to do for the following few days.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carey, I am glad to know that you were able to enjoy my tour and thank you for your good rating for me. I had a good time talking with you about your profession in the US and the history of your family. Thank you. Kenji
