Response from Host, Sept 2023
Tanks for your great review! Taka
Wonderful trip in Tokyo
Tieny_H, Aug 2023
Mr. Masa is a very responsible tour guide to led us to the places what we wanted, even some special places that we didn't expected to go but he made it. Thank you again, we had a wonderful time in Nezu Shrine and areas.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
I had a good and relaxed time with you from Toronto Ontario, my old nostalgic town. I am honored to hear you spent a pleasant time especially in Nezu, old down town down Tokyo. I do hope you will come again to explore some other traditional spots in Tokyo as well in other cities and have a good time with me again. Have a safe fly back to your home. sincerely, Masa
A nice introduction into Tokyo.
MEEFUNG_A, July 2023
Our tour guide was super nice and knowledgeable. He met us at our hotel and tailored our interests to set the itinerary for the day. We got the cliff notes on how to take the subway and get around Tokyo which was pretty cool!! He was very patient with me and my kids.
Response from Host, July 2023
I myself as well had a good and relaxed time with all of you in Tokyo. I am honored to hear you spent a pleasant time. I do hope you will come to Japan again to explore some other spots in Tokyo as well other cities in Japan. (There are a lot more interesting spots all over Japan) and have good time with me again. Have a safe fly back to your home. sincerely, Masa
We found the 'less beaten track'
teresamaynard99, July 2023
We had an enjoyable day with our tour guide Hiro wandering around Tokyo. He was keen to show us the places we wanted to see and when some of them weren't open, for various reasons, we found a Plan B. Finding the 'less beaten track' was tricky at times but we got there and had a great day out.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thank you for your nice review you have posted. I hope you had experienced several aspects of Japanese history and culture. I feel sorry that you couldn’t go to the imperial palace, but we could see the moat, the traditional double-arched bridge and many pine trees around the imperial palace, that’s a relief, I think. On the way to Meiji Jingu shrine, we could visit Meiji Jingu Inner Garden, where we could stroll around a wonderful pond and watching the water lily. That’s an another aspect of Japanese history and culture, I think. If you have a chance to visit Japan again, you should go to Kamakura, where you may find wonderful things of old temples and shrines and the sea. I wish two of you have a wonderful future. 2023, Jul 30 Sincerely yours, Hiromasa Nishiyama A tour guide

lydhanus, May 2023
Way too fast paced. Guide took us to the spots we wanted to see. Not too much information shared about the locations, just the basics. Which we could have read in the tour overview. Could have visited these places our our at a more relaxed and appreciative pace.

Chasing Cherry blossom
gary_p, Apr 2023
Guide Kei met us at Asakusa then trained into Tokyo. It was raining which made things difficult VisitedUeno Lake chasing Cherry blossom. A day or so early but a beautiful area. Visited a number of local cemetery sites where where there were lovely blooms. Including a visit to the old fish markets which was very interesting. Took in lunch along with warm Sake which was also an experience. We did find kei to be a bit lacking in detail and also tended to walk ahead which was off-putting. I have had better guides whilst in japan.
Awesome off the beaten track tour with Kris
maysmenagerie, Mar 2023
We had a wonderful day with Kris. He shared many stories about his life and his family and was fun to be around. Kris sent us a long list of potential activities and based on our particular interests, planned all of the transportation in advance so that we were able to see as much as possible. He helped us learn the subway system and pointed out cultural norms that were very important to know. We made a last minute change to where we wanted to wrap up our tour and Kris accompanied us to the new destination. We had a lovely sushi lunch and made a stop at a little pub where Kris was a regular. I highly recommend booking a tour with Kris!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you very much for your heart warmer review. I am sure you enjoyed Team Lab Pranet and the baseball game at Tokyo Dome. I hope your will visit Japan near future. If we have an opportunity, I would like to watch a baseball at Koshien Stadium with you.
Enjoyable 6 hour day trip in Tokyo
Abhijit_D, Nov 2022
Amazing day trip which started with the beautiful autumn trees at Gingko Avenue , went on to the Tsukiji fish market (including great lunch - fresh sea food) plus other great spots and ended with the magnificent sensoji temple. All this was possible and made enjoyable because of our very friendly and helpful guide Taka san who took us thru the Tokyo subways - (lots of walking !!). Highly recommended if you have just a few hours to coverTokyo !
Response from Host, Jan 2023
It was a wonderful day - Abhijit. I understand your wife as we as you are quite fish lovers. Next time, I will accompany you to eel / conger restaurant which is No.1 in Toyosu. See you next time, Taka
Historic and I love history
Kenneth_L, Nov 2022
The guide was very knowledgeable, courteous, patient, thoughtful, I was very uncomfortable having to travel so far not knowing where I was going but the guide made my trip a memorable one, he was superb
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hi, Thanks for joining my tour. That was a tough quest for the first timer to meet up at the huge labyrinth, Tokyo station haha! I'm glad to hear that you've enjoyed the trip and hope to see you next time. Yuichi
