Nobo provided a great tour !! We had a full day to explore Tokyo! Spent time on our priorities, and had wonderful insights during the day. We especially enjoyed the gardens and shrines..

We had an 8 hour tour of Tokyo with Nobu that was terrific. He is professional, knowledgable, has a wonderful sense of humor and very accommodating. Due to a marathon in town it was difficult to maneuver but he was extreme creative and managed to get us everywhere. I highly recommend Nobu and this tour.

We were traveling with our 14 year old granddaughter-Nobuhide selected places of interest that were right on target to hold her interest. He is very knowledgeable and we can recommend him highly for your private tour requirements-he is also very accommodating and flexible with the itinerary.

Mr. Nobuhide was amazing. He made great suggestions on how to visit as many as possible. He did a great job of showing us around and explaining the sights and traditions. Visiting Meiji Shrine so much more special because Mr. Nobuhide took the time to explain the Shinto traditions and customs. Plus it was great to have someone there to take photos of the three of us. If you have time left at the end of the day and are at Shibuya, be sure to get drinks with him. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Nobuhide.

Nobu made our trip to Tokyo totally pleasant. He knew all the sites to see in the appropriate sequence. His choice of places to eat was outstanding. My wife and I kept commenting on our chance to sample Japanese cuisine at its best. His use of our time was efficient and his mastery of the subway system was reassuring since we would have been lost at the first change of trains. His English was excellent and understandable. I gave Nobu an outstanding rating. We would not return to Tokyo without him.

Nobu is wonderful! He met us promptly at our hotel. He was very realistic in helping us select things from our list that can reasonably be done in one day. His descriptions and explanations were both interesting and entertaining. I will definitely contact him next time we are in Tokyo to enjoy his company as well as his knowledge of this wonderful city!

Very Happy. A great way to spend a day when our stay was short. We saw Tokyo through a local's eye. We asked to go to and see things that we wouldn't find on our own and Nobu delivered. The transport system was negotiated with ease. We ate and drank with locals in eateries we would never have found. We learnt a lot as Nobu answered our questions and shared his knowledge. Sakura at its best and it was also the naming of a new era in Japan's history. Unforgettable.

This private tour with Nobu was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and thorough, and he explained the customs at the sites we visited. We were able to have some unusual experiences, such as seeing the procession of priests at the Meiji Shrine, viewing the city from a high building, or being interviewed on the street by a popular Tokyo TV program. He was considerate and accommodating to all our wishes, and it was a most enjoyable tour.

Nobu is a very helpful guide. We are a family with 2 kids and we were visiting Japan for a first time. Nobu showed us the most famous places, explained about Japan history and traditions and also showed how to use the trains and metro. Highly recommend if you are first time in Japan!

We would give Nobu 5 stars! He was very helpful and showed us many sights. We asked lots of questions that he was able to answer them all. He explained the subway system while we used it and that was great. He also has a nice sense of humor.

Nobu was friendly, informative and flexible. He was able to customize our Tokyo tour as we progressed through the day. We enjoyed his clear explanations of sites like the Meiji Shrine and comparison between Shintoism and Buddhism, and his sense of humour. Nobu easily answered all of our questions and he shared a little of his own background. Travel was smooth and the pace was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at an excellent soba restaurant. We are happy to give Nobu our highest recommendation!

We had a tour with Nobu H. on October 7. He was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. Whatever we wanted to do, he would accommodate us. We would give his tour 5 stars out of 5.

Nobu was very helpful in meeting us at the cruise terminal and having the right sized taxi waiting for us. He took us to some modern sites, such as the "Scramble" Crossing, but also to the major shrine, imparting very interesting bits of information about honor and respect. He lead us around the subway system with ease. He has a pretty good command of the English language and is very friendly and outgoing.
