We had a hot but great day touring Tokyo with Hide. His English is superb. He tailored the tour just for us making sure we saw the things that we wanted to see which included tasting a variety of fresh seafood at Tsukiji market and playing with a hedgehog. We covered a lot of ground including seeing beautiful Japanese gardens and the Meiji Shrine. We also learned how to navigate the subway system which will be invaluable for the rest of our trip. We highly recommend a day with Hide.
