Shinji Nohara aka Tokyo Fixer?

Anyone know how to best contact him? I've tried emailing and calling but have been unsuccessful thus far. Which is weird because a year ago I emailed him and he responded fairly quickly....would love to schedule some time with him either in July or later in the fall!

      81-90-3043-8138 is (was?) his phone number. But a non-working website and email would seem to strongly suggest that he's not in business anymore.

      Looking at his current URL, it looks like he was hosted by Sin Den, so you could try calling them (03-3405-4409) to ask what happened to him. They speak English there.

        Huh, just a few weeks ago the website was still working but now I see it's offline. This is such a bummer and quite sudden. He was always booked when I previously was in contact with him and he seemed really into the job.

        lvokos, please do post if you ever do find out what happened! And if anyone else knows of and recommends another guide similar to what Shinji did, please post! TIA.

          Yukari Sakamoto (author of the Food Sake Tokyo book) and her husband Shinji do private food tours and "fixing" for visiting journalists if that's what you're looking for.

            Yukari is extremely knowledgeable and capable. She is highly recommended.

              Good to know, I will definitely contact her when I can squeeze in a trip.
