Our guide was great. so knowledgeable. this was a perfect first day orientation to tokyo. covered so much territory. i would suggest though, that that audience be read a little more.. there were only 3 of us, and there was one section that no one was paying attention to, and very visibly bored, but because it was 'part of the tour plan' our guide kept going on about it. just a thought!
Jay was terrific. Not only did he share his expertise, he also shared his honest opinions. He was flexible and helpful, as well. It would have been helpful if he had our cell phone number or email to coordinate our precise meeting place.
Our guide was outstanding. In the space of 3 hours he gave us a speed course in Japanese culture and architecture. We found this afternoon that we saw a lot of things that we would have missed or certainly misunderstood without his explanation. As an immigre he brought a particularly interesting take on the culture and as a practicing architect and professor his commentary on the distinctive way in which Tokyo has been built up was fascinating. We would highly recommend him.
