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 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 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!

Our rickshaw driver was great with a wonderful sense of humor. He was bright and working his way through school. We got a great overview of the area. This tour was taken on our first day in Tokyo knowing we would be too tired to do much else and was the perfect thing to do and then decide what we wanted to and where to spend more time.

This tour was so much FUN! Ebisuya Company did a fantastic job of communicating before the tour and accommodating our preferred time and giving us directions on how to get to the meeting place. When we arrived for the tour, they had a big sign with our name and took numerous photos of us in the rickshaw. The manager was very friendly, and our rickshaw driver, Kohei, was the BEST! He spoke English very well and gave us a running commentary on what we were seeing as he ran us around the Asakusa area. We made some stops at the temple too, and he explained the tradition to us. We had the 2 hour tour, and time flew by because we were having so much fun. He has a great laugh and personality, and we felt like friends from the start. All the drivers we encountered were very friendly and made us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend doing this tour!

So happy we scheduled this rickshaw tour. I booked the two hour tour so that it was more leisure and not so rushed. As one might expect to have a male Rickshaw driver, we had the most adorable little young lady, Minami. She was truly, the BEST. First of all, she was so strong like Wonder-woman! She assured us... she has trained for this job and she has it down! Oh my.... she sure did! Minami made it the most interesting tour as she took us through different neighborhoods and shared lots of history and answered questions. Her English was excellent so she was so easy to understand. I will ask for her next time...
