Outstanding Experience!

My driver, Nobu, was amazing!!! I had a long layover with about 4 hours available in the city, so decided to do a 3 hour rickshaw ride. LOVED it!!! I cannot wait to go back to Tokyo and spend some more time there.

Koyo was absolutely fantastic! He had excellent English and when he knew we had an interest in gardens and unu sual buildings, he tried very hard to fit as much as possible into our two hour tour. My mother and I were delighted. He took great photos of the two of us together at few a different spots. It was a wonderful introduction to Japan and the amazing cherry blossoms. Thank you so much.

Mr. Satsuki and Mr. Mocchy are two professional rickshaw drivers. They excel in every detail. From talking to kids, to historical information about the places, from attitude to creativity, all in an interesting and humors atmosphere. This is surely one of my best experience in Japan.
A great way to get around the city...

A great way to get around the city and have a history lesson at the same time. Our guide was so informative, as well as making it very personal to us. My son made friends with him immediately because our guide was so friendly and hospitable. He showed us some small unique shrines, and even took us into a shrine, showing us the proper shrine ettiquette, so we didn't disrespect these beautiful places. Would highly recommend a lovely few hours tripping around the city, seeing the real Japan, including its wonderful people.
We really liked this tour. Great...

We had a great time touring Asakusa! We did the 2-hour tour so we could get all the sight-seeing in and not feel rushed. We are a family of four so we had two rickshaws. Our guides Taka and Minami were fabulous! They were both knowledgable and eager to share insights at each landmark. This was our first rickshaw tour and we will certainly do it again. Thank you, Taka and Minami, for a great time and adding great photos to our memory book! The Walker Family
