I've only practiced Aikikai style, so I don't know much about the differences between that and Tomiki style, but I would agree with Chuck that you should focus more on the similarities than the differences. This helped me a little when I started aikido after practicing other martial arts for several years. Based on my experience and understanding, ranks between the styles might not be officially recognized, but I think your new practice partners would recognize and/or respect your experience in Tomiki. Best of luck!
