Excellent tour around Tokyo. Highly recommended especially for first time visitors. We got a lot of good tips and insights for the remaining time in the city.

We very much enjoyed and appreciated the tour by Ken. His English is excellent, and he is quite intuitive, personable and charming. We got a great sense of Tokyo, including a number of different neighborhoods understanding the history, and how things have changed over the decades. Ken was also great in teaching us how to use the subway/train system. We also learned a lot about food, Japanese phrases, and cultural aspects. We had a lot of fun. Would very HIGHLY recommend Ken!

We loved Ken!! He did a great job of showing us parts of Tokyo that we wouldn't have gone to ourselves. He also gave us the experience and confidence to use the Tokyo subway on our own. He's a terrific tour guide and taught us a lot about the city and people of Tokyo. We highly recommend Ken for your next tour.

This tour was amazing and Ken was the perfect guide. He listened to what we wanted to do and constructed the perfect day for our family of 4 in moments. He answered all our questions, taught us how to use the subway and showed us every area on our list and more. This tour is so worth it and Ken is wonderful person to spend the day with. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend this tour for first time visitors to Tokyo. Ken was an outstanding guide! We took the tour on our first day and it has helped us tremendously! Ken is a longtime resident and he will show you the way to get around Tokyo with confidence. Thanks Ken!!

Ken was outstanding in his explanations of the Tokyo transportation system, Japanese customs and culture, current state of affairs in Japan, and much more. We could not give him a higher recommendation.

We chose Ken because his clients indicated that he had the ability to train you how to navigate Tokyo on your own after his tour. That was 100% true for us. He not only took us to some fantastic places and neighborhoods, but he showed us how to use the subway, buy train tickets, order food, take buses, get cabs, etc. After his tour, we were able to comfortably navigate the city and enjoy many places only locals go. Ken speaks excellent English, listens well, and gives great advice. 5 stars all around.

Ken T did an outstanding job showing us Toyko. He exceeded our expectations. I would call on him again, when we come back to Toyko. He was very easy to understand and was willing to change course if needed. He took us to an amazing lunch. Five Stars all the way, from the first communication by email, Ken arrived at our hotel promptly at the appointed time and tirelessly showed us everything we asked for. If I could give him 10 stars I would. Thanks Again Ken.

We took a day trip from Tokyo to Nikko and spent about 5 hours touring with Ken. We toured the lavish Toshogu Shrine and the Futarasan Shrine, and walked a path lined with Jizo Statues, the guardian deity of children. We ended our tour at the former summer palace of the emperor, the Tamozawa Imperial Villa. Ken was knowledgeable and also very helpful in planning our train transportation to Nikko. My husband enjoyed chatting with Ken about Japanese baseball and sumo wrestling. A great day!!

We were a party of four who had never been to Tokyo before. Our guide Ken T had taken note of our requirements on the tour and showed us exactly what we wanted to see. He gave us an insight to the many facets of the city from the modern to the ancient; from busy to peaceful, from commercial to domestic. Ken answered all our many questions from an obvious base of knowledge. The itinerary was arranged such that we ended up very close to our hotel. Ken gave us a fabulous, memorable day. Thank you.

Ken was prompt in meeting us at our hotel to take us on our "adventure". As we needed to take several crowded trains Ken always made sure we were comfortable and would inform us about Japan and it's history as we were being transported. The park was crowded but were able to see all of the beautiful trees and plants. It was a great experience and Ken made sure that we saw all that was there to see. At the end of the evening Ken showed us the famous intersection in Tokyo before a taxi back to our hotel

Ken was an amazing guide! We had a great time. He quickly adjusted to our pace and engaged with all of us. Ken was happy to respond to a myriad of questions from my 11 year old, while keeping my wife and I engrossed with the history and the architecture. He found the perfect vegetarian restaurant for us as well. And made sure we were completely satisfied with all aspects of the tour. I am happy we got Ken as our guide. My son is still raving about him.

Really got a good taste of Tokyo using Ken's services. He knows the city very well and how to efficiently use the subway system to maximize the time spent trying to see this massive city in the limited amount of time available. He also has a lot of local knowledge and answered our numerous questions on Japanese culture and society. The 8 hours we spent with Ken were time and money well spent.
Ken did a great job of showing us around Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya. We saw lots of cherry blossoms which we had specifically requested. He also found some great experiences for my daughter to enjoy e.g. the dog statue at Shibuya, the crossing, Loft store with lots of stationary. It was very busy so somewhat challenging at times but he did a great job of getting us around on the subway.
Ken was absolutely fabulous he helped us out so much and took us to all the places we wanted to go. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. I would rate him 5 out of 5.

Ken took the time to show us the area around our hotel as well as taking us on the JR Trains and Subways in Tokyo. Providing us with the knowledge of how to navigate the city on our own during the rest of our stay. Ken listened to our interests and customized our day accordingly. Very helpful and unique tour.
Ken was excellent. Very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. There is certainly no way we would've been able to find our way around without him. Brilliant first day introduction to Tokyo and the public transport system. Happily recommend his services to anyone. We were a family of six, including two children. He was so helpful.
David SnyderUnited States
Ken was super accomodating and helpful and customized my tour so I could see everything I hoped to in one day. He had plenty of great information and history to share with me along the way. I was originally worried about finding a tour guide that could keep up with my pace and cover as much ground as I wanted to, but Ken powered through a busy day of walking and helped me see and understand everything I wanted to in and about Tokyo. I highly recommend him for any of his tours!
Mary Lenore FinesUnited States
We had an excellent experience touring around Tokyo with Ken. We were concerned about getting train tickets to Kyoto and to Narita so we asked Ken to help us out before we started the tour. He was most accommodating and took us to the train stations to buy the tickets and then showed us exactly what we were supposed to do. His instructions were excellent and we took our trains without any problem. He showed us all around Tokyo and was very responsive to all of our questions. Excellent guide!
Mike RobillardUnited States
Ken is highly intelligent and very intuitive. Took me every where I wanted to go without much direction from me. I'm interested in neighborhoods and he took me to several and was very well versed in their history. We also shared a ramen lunch in a place he suggested. Very enjoyable. Good guy and really knows Tokyo.
