Mr. Toshi sent email one week before the scheduled date. He suggested to change the tour date because the weather forecast was expecting snow. We delayed one day and voila! we enjoyed a spectacular blue sunny weather after snow which doubled our pleasure. Nikko was so beautiful and has lots of historical stories. Mr. Toshi was very considerate and took care of all the aspect of travel with detail. I would like to thank him in public. I stronly recommend this trip to everybody.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jack Thank you for your nice comments. I myself enjoyed the day too. Please come back again. I am anxious to chat with you with a glass of wine.
Unique experience for us and thanks to Toshi who had chosen the right places and temples to have a relaxed trip and time for a traditional lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ursula It was a fun experience. I hope you and your colleagues also enjoyed the tour although the weather was not perfect that day. Hope to see you soon.
We decided on specific parts of Tokyo to visit and Toshi also brought up ideas. We enjoyed participating in a New Years ceremony taking place in a temple we might never have found on our own. Toshi also is an expert in public transportation that made it possible to visit so many places in one day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ursula Thank you for your comments. I also had a great fun making a tour for you. Please come back with your husband and daughter next time.

Really enjoyed our private tour with Toshi who was both friendly and knowledgeable . He took us to places we enjoyed going and took into consideration what we were looking for. I would certainly highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Betty Thank YOU for being a wonderful guest for me although it was hot and muggy day in Tokyo and the tour was not comfortable, to begin with. It was YOU and YOUR HUSBAND who made it possible for me to tour places of Tokyo yesterday. I learned a lot about how to treat Kosher food requirement and it was fun to exchange information about our culture and how we view the lifestyle of each religion. Please enjoy your cruise and come back someday. If you can recommend me to your friends, I will be happy.

We had a great evening touring with Toshi. He met us at our hotel which made it very simple for us. The restaurant was in an area we had not been to before and it was truly all locals and no tourists. He ordered several dishes, which gave us an opportunity to try some dishes we had never had before. 2nd restaurant for after dinner snacks and unique after dinner drinks. Toshi speaks excellent English & has deep knowledge of Japanese food and drink, especially wine and sake. A fun & educational evening.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mike It was very nice to see and get to know you and your son. I was wondering though if you could go back to the hotel without any problem after I left you with my friend's Chinese restaurant. If you ever have a chance to come back to Tokyo, please contact me. I will make a wonderful tour for you. Maybe you can refer to your friends. Sorry for the belayed response, I have been busy making tours day after day. Have a good day!

Toshi let our family of 4 with 14 year old boys on an excellent evening walking tour and to dinner at a great restaurant. We all enjoyed discussing Japan with Toshi who had had several periods of living in US. Even as an exchange student in high school.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mark, Thank you so very much for your review. I was the one who enjoyed our meeting the most. I hope to see all of you again someday somewhere!
Excellent tour and the transport arrangements organised by Toshi worked well so that we looked at much more than would otherwise have been possible, including cherry blossom which was a great thrill to see so late in May. Toshi was a very good guide from the time he met us, sorted out getting to the express train and private taxi as the bus timetable is limited at this time, and providing commentary on the way. We worked out what made a good tour for us and he then implemented it. Highly recommend Toshi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Neal Thank you for your great comments and rating. Goddess of the weather has cooperated very well also, hasn’t she? You were wonderful clients for me and made my tour much easier. I will treasure the memory for a long long time. Please come back to see other surrounding cities like Kamakura and Hakone. I will take you also to some wonderful restaurants in Tokyo.

We met Toshi in Shimbashi, and he took us to a small local Izakaya for some traditional food and drink. We had a wonderful evening with him. It was definitely something we would not have been able to do on our own. Toshi is very knowledgeable and helpful. We highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alison, Thank you for being wonderful clients for me yesterday and the night before. I hope you and your husband Rick will enjoy the rest of the tour on the cruise. And in the future, if you come back to Japan to see more of Tokyo and the surrounding area like Hakone, Nikko, Mt.Fuji etc., please contact me. I will be more than happy to serve you. Have a nice trip!!

Excellent tour, Toshi was an amazing guide. He crafted the tour to fit our needs and likes. He picked out a wonderful restaurant for lunch. The tour does involve a lot of walking so keep that in mind.
