Hello, I am Toshi, local tour guide in Tokyo and surrounding area. Tokyo is an attractive city where new and old things coexist. Let’s explore the heart of Tokyo and Japan with me.
I was born in Aichi prefecture (located between Tokyo and Kyoto) and grew up there. I have been in Tokyo area more than 25 years. When I was a child, I was interested in different cultures, so I studied English enthusiastically to be able to communicate with people who has a different cultural background.
After graduated from college, I had been in the computer industry about 40 years. I've traveled a lot and visited many countries. When I was thirty’s, I lived in San Francisco, California for four years. I experienced a great deal of cultural exchange there.
After retired, I acquired the national license of Tour guide, and have been in tour guide business for two years.
I myself like walking round the towns. I sometimes do temple and shrine hopping, and once in a while visit the Sake brewery for my own research. I also like strolling around the Tsukiji food market, Ryogoku area famed with Sumo, Asakusa and Ueno where we can feel the atmosphere Tokyo’s past decades.
Most of my tours are on foot, simply because, it’s the best way to explore inner Tokyo and the surrounding area. We have a very sophisticated transportation system here in Tokyo. We can get almost any places using train, subway and buses.
My tours are planned to teach you about the people, culture and history of Tokyo and Japan. I aim to provide an informative experience that helps you to understand what makes Tokyo, Japan such an attractive place to be and travel to. If you like your original tour according to your interest, please feel free to contact with me.
