Yoh was an awesome person to spend the day and night in Tokyo. It was like hanging out with a long lost friend. We instantly clicked. I never saw so much of a city in one day. I think we walked 35,000 to 40,000 steps and we got to see many different areas of Tokyo from hidden gems to famous sights. I would not hesitate to recommend Yoh to anyone visiting Tokyo as you will have a great friend to show you around.
Yoh-san is the man! Smart, chatty, energetic, fun-loving and perceptive of tourist needs, he works in another industry but helps tourists on his free weekends to practice English and meet travelers; he really knows what makes for an insider experience in Tokyo. Best of all he becomes a friend...
He took my family to-
Tsukiji Area (inner and outer market where we saw seafood stalls with local produce and I bought a top notch sushi knife while learning about the blades with Yoh-san's translation help); we also went to an INCREDIBLE sushi restaurant in a little side street that a writer friend recommended but we would not have found without Yoh-san. A side note here - I treat my local guides to the same meals and drinks as mine - that's up to you although I really recommend it.
We also visited Ueno Station Area and surrounding attractions.
We walked through park where we saw some kimono clad beauties, and the passed by a shrine.
We also visited Ameyayokocho and the fascinating long lines of shops built UNDER the railway tracks near Ueno-okachimachi Station. We shopped and played mean rounds of Taiko drumming at an arcade game hall. Enjoyed an hour hanging out at a street-side Izayaka (a Japanese gastropub) crowded with merry makers and tried a deep fried bean pastry
We walked through shopping alleys to the oldest Tokyo shrine, Sensoji Temple, and went to a charming and tourist-free traditional clothing store (with very comfy but funny-looking traditional underclothing!)
Yoh is a great person to spend the day with in Tokyo! He has a fun personality and is easy to get along with, so that makes the tour that much more enjoyable. He showed me around so many sites in one day and we spent hours and hours walking and taking in the amazing scenery. I would highly recommend Yoh to be anyone's tour guide when coming into the city.
Yoh was a great host. He showed up despite having a late day at work, bad weather, and constant changes to my travel plans. He speaks great English and gave us a great tour from a local perspective. Very nice guy who can show you Tokyo. Reliable, easy to communicate with, and informative. Highly recommend!
