A Recent Review of this tour

Yoshi's architectural tour of Tokyo was all that he played, plus a fun surprise g you'll have to take the tour to find out. He was very knowledgeable, articulate, and pleasant. Each site was introduced with history and related facts. We were fortunate to see a Shinto wedding party. Yoshi's is very prepared: he faxed a us two days before to confirm the tour details, mentioning options to expand; he was prompt in meeting us; he provided information and materials and tips on the next leg of our trip.
