Ken is very knowledgeable, friendly and easy to get along with right off the bat. He gave us great tips on where to go beyond what you read in the books. Highly recommended!

Ken was awesome! He took us to all the spots on the itinerary and when there were areas of interest of us nearby (Pokemon store, BIC store) he took us there as well. It was all very personalized. He patiently answered all our questions. When the tour ended he walked us to the platform to ensure that this was the train we take back to the hotel. My daughter and I highly recommend Ken. Best tour guide ever.

Ken did a great job taking our family (2 adults and 2 boys ages 5 and 7) on a tour of the fish markets, a pet cafe, and the Pokemon Super Store. He guided us through the subway during rush hour and was patient when the little ones complained about some walking. His English and knowledge of the city is excellent.
Wow! Our first day in Tokyo and Ken was fantastic. He met us at our apartment guided us to the JR Station and showed us how to purchase our transport card. He then explained how the JR trains and subway worked. What a great way to save time and effort. Ken spent 5 hrs showing us Shinjuku, Shibyu, Harajuku and Akihabara including an amazing shrine and many famous sites including the Shibuya crossing and Takeshita-dori. He also took us to a fantastic Ramen place for lunch in Shibuya. Awesome tour!!

We had a wonderful experience touring Tokyo with Ken! He was easy to communicate with over email, helped us see all the sites on our list and more, and was extremely patient with our jet-lagged 4-year old kids. One of the best things about having a local guide is getting insight into Japanese culture. Ken was a wealth of knowledge and we learned a lot from talking with him. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Tokyo tour guide, especially those with kids.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Ken. He was waiting at our hotel ahead of time and was quick to work out what interested our family. Ken spoke excellent English and was quick to assist wherever necessary. Ken knows the right places to eat, also ... we had an amazing Japanese lunch with the largest prawns we've ever seen�� At the end of the day, Ken made sure we got back to our hotel safely. We highly recommend Ken to any traveller to Tokyo. He has excellent knowledge of Tokyo's history and culture.

Ken was friendly, easy-going and perfect English speaking guide. We enjoyed the fish market, Yasukuni Shrine and Japanese Zero plane, and festival with a traditional dance. He took us to a Ramen restaurant that worked with my son's food allergies, and was delicious. Helped us navigate the metro and showed us places we wanted to visit later on. He emailed me several times before the trip to arrange the day, and after tour with info on another excursion. We never felt rushed. Wish we could tour again!

Ken was a great guide! He communicated with us prior to the tour and helped us figure out a good itinerary for the day. He was also flexible and we made changes through the day. He was able to teach how to get around on public transportation, which was very helpful for the rest of the stay! My kids (age 9 and 13) felt like they got to see all of the things on their wish list for the day. He was very patient and helped them with their shopping experiences. It was the perfect introduction to Tokyo!
We had a great day with Ken. He helped us learn how to use the subway system and JR lines. He took us to the main areas of Tokyo and waited patiently whilst my children checked out arcades and gatchepon games. The visit to the Edo-Tokyo museum was the highlight for me. Ken guided us through the main exhibition which was fantastic.

Ken met us and farewelled us at the apartment we stayed in so we were quickly able to orientate ourselves. It was a relief to follow Ken around on Tokyo's rabbit warren subway and he gave us tips about tickets etc which helped us for the rest of our trip. Ken showed us all the sights we wanted to see and more. Ken was polite, knowledgable, has perfect English and a great sense of humour. I would thoroughly recommend Ken as a guide, particularly when you first arrive.

Ken is great! He listens to all of you, and what we hoped to do, and we did it. All of it! Even some of the things that we didn't ask to do, just mentioned Ken listened, and made sure of. We did this on our first day, and it was a total win. It helped to set up for the rest of our trip. Ken helped explain and give advice for our entire trip. Highly recommend this experience.
Thanks so much to Ken for a great day in a very wet Tokyo!! I think we went through plans A to Z as the rain got heavier and the jet lag caught up on two small children. But Ken answered all our questions with great patience. During the day he understood more and more of what we were interested in and added those surprises in. A lovely way to see the city and get to learn more about Tokyo. Highly recommend Ken!

Ken was great! Superb English. He managed to keep 2 rowdy boys ( 8 & 10) interested and entertained. He was calm and organised. We started with the Tsukiji fish market then to the Shinjuku Gardens to see the Sakura which were blooming everywhere in the garden. My local friends didn't even know they had started blooming yet as we hadn't seen any other Sakura around town! So thanks Ken for that amazing photo op! He helped us navigate the subway and even brought us to our lunch with friends afterwards.
Ken is fabulous. Informative, fun and adaptable.
Ken did a fantastic job taking my husband and I + 3 girls around Tokyo yesterday morning. We got to understand and see things we wouldn't have seen if we had just been wondering the streets alone. Thank you for a fantastic day....we loved it so much we are doing another tour tomorrow!
We had a wonderful day with Ken, who catered the tour to suit our family which included 3 children (ages 8,10,12). Ken was very flexible and managed to squeeze everything we wanted to see into the day. No waiting time at all! Ken's English is excellent and he really went the extra mile - even staying with us after to tour was supposed to have finished to help us book train tickets for the following day. Thanks Ken!
