We spent the first day of our trip touring Tokyo with Toshiko. I can't imagine a better way to spend the day. Thanks to Toshiko's vast knowledge of Japanese history, excellent communication and planning, we were able to visit all of the sites we had hoped to see and then some. She helped us navigate the subways and understand local etiquette. We filled our belies with amazing sushi, matcha, mochi and tamago. She also directed us to authentic gifts and additional places to explore.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brandon, Thank you for the fabulous review! I enjoyed the tour with you very much. I am glad that you liked all the places we visited. The way you used suica installed in your smart watch was cool!! Thank you again for having me with you on your first day in Tokyo! Best regards, Toshiko

We really enjoyed our day with Toshiko in Tokyo. She helped us navigate the city efficiently, gave us a little history background (without getting too longwinded - we were traveling with teens, after all), taught us some basic Japanese, and how to properly pay our respects at Shinto and Buddhist temples. Without her, we would have been completely ignorant! I appreciated how Toshiko got in touch in advance of the tour to tailor our day to our family's needs. I highly recommend this guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle, Thank you so much for your fabulous review!! I am happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the tour with me! I had a great time too. Thank you very much!! Best, Toshiko
We had a custom tour with Toshiko and she was AMAZING. We travelled to Japan with our two children ages 14 and 16 and we all thouroughly enjoyed our tour. Toshiko was extremely helpful to us by showing us the subway, taking us to lunch and having Japanese tea in one of the gardens. She explained the history of Japan and had notes and posters in her bag to assist with the explanation. She even had matcha kitkats for us to try. We had a wonderful day!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Krystalle, Thank you so much for your great review! It was my pleasure meeting you and your wonderful family. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Tokyo. Please come to Japan again! Thank you, Toshiko

We enjoyed our full day tour of Tokyo with Toshiko. Our family learned Japanese history, shrine etiquette, and numerous cultural things from her. Without Toshiko, we could not have seen so many sights on our own. We appreciated that she met us and returned us to our hotel. We were able to alter the full day itinerary to include sights we wanted such as an amazing sushi lunch at Tsukiji, shopping for my daughter in Harajuku, and a peaceful garden stroll. Thank you Toshiko!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Heidi, Thank you so much for your fabulous review! I am really glad that you enjoyed the tour. It was my pleasure to be with you on the last day of your trip! I had a great time with you and your wonderful family. Thank you very much!
