Tokyo, Japan

©2018 by Tours Japan 

After a half a dozen outstanding tours by guides in various countries, we thought that we couldn't be any more impressed. Patrick was, by far, the most extraordinary guide we have ever had. With his deep understanding of Japanese culture as well as Western misconceptions, he generously shared with us his passion for Japan and the Japanese. We experienced places, sights, sounds, smells and tastes that we could never have found on our own. If you have a few days in Tokyo and beyond, do it with Patrick.

Edo to Tokyo & Hakone History Walking Tour, May 2018

Outstanding guide, one of the best we have ever toured with. We learned so much in the few hours we spent with Patrick and wish we had booked multiple days.

1-Day Tokyo History Walking Tour, Dec 2017

Patrick is the ultimate guide. His scope of knowledge in Japanese culture & history is no less than astounding. He's also a warm, considerate person. Above everything else, his honesty concerning monetary matters is to be commended. I'll recommend him as ESSENTIAL for whoever wants a depth tour of Japan.

Essential Kyoto Tour, Oct 2017

Spent a wonderful day with Patrick in March. He did a fantastic job of describing the history of Toyko to my 2 kids (10 and 12) and personalizing it to their interests. He was also very helpful with recommending a driver and excellent restaurant in Kyoto. His deep knowledge of Japanese history and culture, and gift for skillfully translating it to a Western audience is a treasure.

​Tour: Day Tokyo History Walking Tour Mar 2016

The most extraordinary 2 days around Tokyo with Patrick. He's a walking encyclopedia on Japanese history and has a very humbling appreciation for both Shinto and Budhaism. Once the history of japan and Edo are explained the city makes so much sense. Patrick's choice of lunch venues is wonderful - little family run eateries with delicious food. And you'll be introduced to businesses that have been in families for generations and in the same location. You'll see Tokyo as no travel guide will show. Enjoy!!

2-Day Tokyo History Walking Tour, Nov 2017

Patrick is the ideal tour guide. He's knowledgeable about Japanese history, culture, language, and he's lived in Japan for a very long time so he knows his way around so flawlessly that we had the best views everywhere we went. He is also courteous, engaging, pleasant, and, overall, an enjoyable person to spend the day touring with. We learned so much from Patrick not only about the sights we saw, but also small cultural nuances that we would never have known otherwise.

We really wanted to experience Tokyo on a much deeper, historical level.  … a very unique tour of the "Low City", explaining how the city evolved during and after the Edo period.

Fantastic! We saw sights far from the beaten path that we would never have seen on our own. Followed up with excellent recommendations for places to see after the tour. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to know about Tokyo's history below the surface.

We have toured the world and often used guides - (Tours Japan) was definitely one of the best. The guide never lost his passion and enthusiasm to show us in detail, the history, culture and lifestyles of Japan. Taking care of all aspects of the tour and our requests was so much appreciated and allowed us to focus on the experience itself.
