I'm a resident orthopedic surgeon in the USA. I'm interested in culture, food, and adventure.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Yu! I was only in tokyo for 3 days, after having been in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia. I wanted to see a few specific sites in Tokyo from a local's perspective. Yu was the perfect match. He's a Tokyo native, knows the city well, is well-traveled, and is incredibly courteous, happy, and energetic. His english is excellent.
We spent a Saturday morning together tailored around my interests. We started in Asakusa. He took me around the Senso-ji Temple, shops, and the Japanese professional cookware stores. He was so generous and bought Japanese rice crackers for us to snack on along the way.
We then visited the Tsukiji fish market. We explored the area and he pointed out a few important sites. We ate a delicious sushi lunch (best sushi I've ever had). For dessert, we ate the biggest raw oysters I've ever seen. So good!
He answered most of my questions with ease, and in the rare case that he didn't know the answer, he looked it up quickly on his iphone.
It seemed more like I was hanging out with a new local friend as opposed to following a paid tour guide - not because of a lack of knowledge/insight, but because he's a very easy person to be around and it was very low key. I really appreciated how he was flexible and tailored the tour to my interests. Thanks, Yu! This was worth every penny (and more). Without hesitation, I give him my highest recommendation.
