This was a good tour showing us import things and customs in YH life. Items most ppl pass by such as a mail box was shown and the importance of greeting cards was explained. YH interacted with the tour participants answered our questions and showed us very interesting things. I enjoyed this tour very much Thank you YH

YH was very personable, and he walked a long way to show us plenty of Shinjuku. But, for me, there wasn't enough of a sense of a structured tour. I would have been happy with less to see but more stories or information about what we were seeing. It felt like just having a stroll around the streets, which was also fun, so thank you YH!
