Date: Oct 31/18

What an excellent tour! Yoshi pointed out so many small things that we would have otherwise walked by but made the tour unforgettable and we are still telling all our friends about. This was on top of all the architectural information he shared both from a professional and personal level. Although techically not a photo walk due to the architectural focus of this tour we got some stunning photos which we intend to frame. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pat, Thank you for taking my tour. I am glad to know that you have enjoyed the tour.Yesterday, I have just finished 19days tour with 14 American travelers. We have enjoyed autumn color change. Hope you will visit Japan again. Best regards to Alfred. Yoshi

Yoshi was very well prepared with site seeing information beyond the sumo wrestling. The visits to sumo practice and Edo museum were most enjoyable additions to the day. Yoshi is very knowledgeable about sumo wrestling, Edo museum, and Japan. He takes great care to know his customers and give them a great tour.

Tour: #425889, Private Tour of Tokyo Highlights from and to Yokohama Passengers Terminal, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Apr 14/18

Excellent tour guide and tour. We had a specific set of sites and types of restaurants we wanted to visit in Tokyo. Through a friendly series of email exchanges Yoshihiro-san organized an outstanding plan and yet was ready to be flexible to our requests. He went out of his way to meet us at the cruise terminal to ensure successful navigation through the mass transit system into Tokyo and provided many insights from a local's perspective which the normal tourist would miss. Will definitely use TBL again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen san, Thank you so much for taking my tour in Tokyo. I had enjoyed your family. Your husband and son are beautiful persons. It was as a result of your earnest exchanging correspondence with me about the tour. It was good I could take your son to Tsukiji Wholesale Market. Someday I want to have his making sushi. I do believe he will be an excellent sushi master. Yoshi

Tour: 2-Day Tokyo History Walking Tour, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Dec 28/17

Yoshi was the perfect guide for us on our first trip to Tokyo. We wanted two full days of cultural immersion and touring significant architectural landmarks. With little notice, Yoshi customized our itinerary ranging from popular to obscure points of interest sprinkled with amazing lunches. His English is fantastic; he is charming, intelligent and has a great sense of humor. What is most amazing is that even after walking all day for 7 hours he still managed to take two steps at a time at every stiarcase.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your message. I am very glad to hear that you have enjoyed two days with me. Please visit Japan again and enjoy the other part of Japan. Yoshi

Yoshihiro was very knowledgeable. His English is very good. He was also very flexible in adapting his tour to our needs in Tokyo. Ask him to bring you to less touristic places and do these on your own the next few days. Yoshi brought us to a very small and authentic Japanese Isakaya. It was the highlight of our 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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for enjoing my "one day architectural tour".It was my pleasure to share a day of your Tour of Japan Exploring.I may forgot to leave a momo my suggestion for Kyoto visit. I raised 4 interesting spots to see and enjoy there. They are Kodaiji Buddist Temple night tour, Morning walk at Kamo River, Walking at Philosopher's Path and Visit and walk from 1st floor to the top roof of the building of Kyoto Station. Have a safe and pleasant trip. Yoshi

Yoshi was a very good guide. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, saw many interesting places I would never have found on my own, and learned a lot about the individual buildings we visited. He freely shared his insights from an architectural perspective while additionally giving me lots of interesting insights into Japanese culture, daily life and Japan's architectural history. I would definitely recommend Yoshi to my friends and will consider another tour with him on a subsequent visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment, John. It was my pleasuere to show you Tokyo from architectural point of view yesterday. And I need to say I learned a lot from you from business point of view. I really want you to bring your wonderful family to Japan next time. Yoshi

Yoshi was a wonderfully informed and extremely personable guide for our group of 21 US art college and graduate students and 2 professors. He took us on an 8 hour tour of some of the most exciting contemporary architecture in Tokyo, giving us in depth personal knowledge not just of the buildings we looked at but also their context in the continuing development of this fascinating and dynamic urban center. We highly recommend taking a tour with Yoshi.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment,Elena-san. It was a great experience to be with you, your associate and students in Tokyo. I was amazed by a quick sketch of my self done by your student. I am having that photo in a picture frame in my room for a memory. Whenever you have necessity to know about Japan, please do not hesitate to write me. I would like to respond to that. Yoshi

Had the best guide from you. He went out of his way to show me the sights. I had never tried to use a subway before, it was a highlight of my trip. His wife came with us and she bought me a Japanese rice burger. What a different fast food treat. Also tasty jelly candies. They are five star people.
